Put an End to Worry

Positive Imagery for Health and Happiness

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Our brains are hardwired for worry. While our ancient ancestors had a legitmate use for the fight-or-flight instinct, what was once a matter of surival has now become the stuff of sleepless nights and anxious days for many of us.

Worry activates our stress response, which sets off a cascade of chemical reactions that become harmful when prolonged. By learning how to redirect that same brain power toward positive feeling states, we can reduce our body’s reaction to stress and boost our overall well-being.

Guided by integrative physician Martin Rossman, MD, you will receive a comprehensive review of the science and applications of mind-body healing. Through lecture and experitential excercises, you will learn:

  • The origin and evolutionary advantages of worrying and how it can easily turn into a futile and dangerous bad habit
  • Effective methods of using imagination skillfully to reduce stress, anxiety, and worry
  • Specific guided imagery techniques to relieve pain, help improve sleep and mood, and stimulate profound healing responses in the body.

For anyone looking to unhook from the habit of worry, this program provides tools to powerfully relax your body, leading to a more positive outlook on life and greater health and resilience.
