Barbara Langton, visiting from New Zealand, will speak on August 1, from 7-9.30pm, on Holistic Health and Wellbeing. Entrance by donation to ODEF.
As health budgets increase, governments are in debt, and the baby-boomers reach their 60s, it becomes more and more important to take good care of ourselves.
Despite growing evidence that physiology is intricately connected to mental and emotional states, Western healthcare remains focused on reducing physical symptoms.
But, we are whole persons who have a body, mind, emotions and spirit and live with others in partnerships, families and communities. All these aspects are intricately interwoven along with the environment in which we live.
Causes of imbalance/illness/disease may be located in any of these dimensions. We have our own genes, susceptibilities, vulnerabilities, gender, and life stories. What is stressful for one person may be stimulating for another; and this changes with time.
So how do we manage our whole person health and wellness? You are invited to an evening of exploration and inquiry.
Barbara Langton has a Postgraduate Diploma in MindBody Healthcare; 2005–2010 she developed and taught applied Health Psychology modules for a Degree in Massage and Neuromuscular Therapies. She is also a facilitator and mediator.
