Breath-Body-Mind™ Workshop for Transformation

Patricia Gerbarg, MD, and Richard Brown, MD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Multi-Faith Centre/Koffler House, 569 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5S 2J7

The Breath-Body-Mind approach has been praised by Daniel J. Siegel as “the essential skills we need to bring health into our lives”. Drs. Gerbarg and Brown, the creators of this approach, offer a unique fusion of evidence-based techniques drawn from yoga, qigong, meditation, martial arts, Open Focus Attention Training, polyvagal theory and neuroscience.

The Breath-Body-Mind approach is designed to activate mind-body communication pathways, raise energy, regulate mood, enhance performance and help dissolve pain. You will learn breathing techniques proven to relieve stress and improve mood, mental focus and performance. You will also learn mindfulness of breath and small-group processes to help enhance awareness of internal changes. All exercises and gentle movements can be done in an office environment, standing or sitting.

This approach has treated thousands of adults and children worldwide, including healthcare practitioners, yoga teachers, military veterans and individuals with PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADD, cancer and other medical conditions. Videos will illustrate research and outcomes of applying Breath-Body-Mind while supporting survivors of international disasters and humanitarian crises such as the 2004 Southeast Tsunami in Asia, 9/11 World Trade Center attacks and the Gulf Horizon oil spill.

This training is relevant for health care providers who wish to improve stress, resilience, health and well-being such as psychologists, therapists, nurses, doctors, yoga teachers, schoolteachers and first responders. It fulfills the prerequisite for Breath-Body-Mind Level 1 teacher training.

Activate capacities for relationships, connectedness, compassion and empathy
Improve cardio-respiratory function
