Your Mind and Your Health
A Realistic Appraisal of What It Can and Cannot Do


If you really want to understand both the power of the mind to affect health and its limitations, then this is the seminar for you. You've read the books, attended some of the church services, and maybe even taken some seminars on the power of thought to heal. Or maybe you're a skeptic, who has just heard enough about the "miracle" of mind over matter in medicine to begin to take an interest. Either way, you're ready to begin sorting out the truth about it from amidst both the hype and the skepticism. 

Who Should Attend

Anyone interested in understanding how the mind affects health — from a realistic, scientifically-based viewpoint.

  • What mind-body medicine entails
  • The theory and scientific evidence of mind-body medicine

  • Why mind-body medicine is essential to becoming and staying health
  • The risks, drawbacks, and limitations of mind-body medicine
  • Understanding the skepticism about mind-body medicine
  • The techniques and therapies used in mind-body medicine
