Men and Women

Introduction to Heart and Mind Therapy Groups Heart disease is prevalent in our society and continues to be the largest single cause of death in America. For every 1 in 3 people, their 1st cardiac symptom is their last because they fail to survive. As one of those who did survive, I have a wealth of information to share with those who are aware of a family history of heart disease, those who want to alter its progression and prevent a cardiac event. This seminar will explore the efficacy of recent advances in early detection and diagnosis, discuss the research in terms you can understand, and provide a clear direction for proactive steps you can take right now to modify your risk factors, address those psychosocial factors in your life that contribute to the disease, and show how you can improve relationships all at the same time. HereÕs to your health! I hope to see you there!

Calling On Your Inner Babe Do you find yourself thinking, "it’s too late", and accepting the stereotypes of aging? Well, ladies, if you’re 50s and beyond, according to Marianne Williamson, ‘it is not too late…you are not too old…you are right on time…and you are better than you know." Let’s call on the young women we were in our 20s and 30s – the passion, the hope, the possibility. She’s still inside of us, waiting to connect with the hard-earned wisdom that we have gained, and waiting to join with us in creating new possibilities, hope, and passion. Bring a favorite photo or two of yourself at that "babe" age, some favorite music for the past, and a journal or notebook. You will leave refreshed and ready to "move on up" to whatever is next.
