“The stories we habitually tell ourselves change our brain circuitry, our relationships, and our path through the world. They can elevate life to heaven on earth, or drop us unceremoniously into the fire.” – Dr. Joan Borysenko
Do you know what can be more restorative to the body than sleep? If you said “meditation” or “guided imagery” or “hypnosis” you are correct. These altered states of consciousness have a therapeutic impact on the body, mind, and spirit.
Whether you have a regular meditation practice, have thought about the benefits of using guided imagery, are interested in hypnosis as a healing technique, or even if all this is a new idea to you, be sure to get up in time for a “double-induction.” Internationally known experts in mind-body medicine, licensed trainers of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnotherapy, practitioners of energy medicine, Joel Bowman and Debra Basham will treat you to a life-changing morning meditation/guided imagery/hypnosis session.
Come prepared to share in your own words a sentence or two of what you would most like to receive from your experience. Think about it this way: “If you could have anything you wanted, what would that be?” Using the principles and format of Imagine Healing, this is a time just for you to dream dreams that will bless your life and the lives of others.
You will be invited to relax completely as you passively develop beneficial language skills, enjoy a mindfulness meditation format that you can share with your clients or patients, and have the opportunity to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and let yourself enjoy bringing to mind your highest intention for your practice, your profession, your life, and your world...
We will gather at 7:00 am Saturday, October 12 and at 8:00 am Sunday, October 13.
Our time together will leave you refreshed, inspired, and clear-headed for a wonderful start of the conference day.
Celebrating 30 years of ICIM, and the future of integrative medicine, each conference attendee will receive an autographed copy Healing with Language: Your Key to Effective Mind-Body Communication along with one month’s access to the online program free.
Think about the difference between saying or thinking, “If you get well,” or “When you get well.” Bring into awareness the linguistic influences that significantly affect health and well-being. Healing with Language: Your Key to Effective Mind-Body Communication, written by Joel and Debra, is a comprehensive Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) training manual.
The foundational tools were codified into Neurolinguistic Programming primarily by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, but they were based on the works of Korzybski, Erickson, and others, including Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls, Gregory Bateson, and Paul Watzlawick). Healing with Language: Your Key to Effective Mind-Body Communication employs specific language patterns to recognize and influence an individual in beneficial ways. It borrows from linguistics, semantics, cognitive therapy, behaviorism, and energy medicine to bring conscious and unconscious resources into alignment to achieve results that have been called “magical.”
An easy way to think about Healing with Language is to recognize that words have energy and energy is at the basis (or lack) of health and well-being. Joel and Debra provide an on-line training program and have offered a weekly column in our online newsletter for over two years.
