Mindfulness: Turning Down the Noise
Presented and developed by Catherine Grytting, Ed.D
Writing for the Huffington Post, the investigative journalist, Peter Baksa, reminds us that the "brain is comprised of a tight network of nerve cells, all interacting with one another and generating an overall electrical field. This electric field is detectable with standard medical equipment."* The scientist Rollin McCrathy reports that the heart also generates a powerful electromagnetic field.**
This six-hour workshop introduces therapists to the concept that thoughts and emotions combine to generate electromagnetic fields that, in turn, influence our thoughts, feelings, behaviors and well-being. It also explores ways that meditation diminishes the magnetism of these fields, contributes to the establishment of new electromagnetic patterns and reduces stress. The training provides the opportunity to identify common electromagnetic patterns. It explores the process of interrupting and replacing dysfunctional patterns. It also guides participants through six meditation techniques that can be used to reduce stress and to retrain the mind to create and activate new, healthy and effective electromagnetic patterns. Those who understand and apply mindfulness are well positioned to lower personal stress levels and to help clients enhance wellness and well-being.
