What is this event and what will I learn?

Learn proven breathing techniques to relieve stress and improve mood, mental focus, and performance. Benefits have been enjoyed by thousands of adults and children worldwide, including medical professionals, yoga teachers, military veterans, and individuals with PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADD, cancer, and other health conditions.

These techniques have been a transformative experience for many practitioners, who never would have imagined that something so simple could be so powerful and helpful.  You will learn to:

  • Renew your energy and increase your stress resilience
  • Increase lung capacity, oxygenation, and cardio-respiratory health
  • Improve relationships and empathic abilities essential to connection at work and at home

The workshop will be led by Dr. Richard Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg, recognized pioneers in evidence-based integrative medicine. This introductory workshop is appropriate for both service providers and the general public. 

NOTE: The workshop is a prerequisite to the BREATH-BODY-MIND™ Level-1 Teacher Training that prepares individuals to teach trauma-sensitive BREATH-BODY-MIND™ practices safely and effectively to clients. 

This program is offered in response to requests of the Resilience Coalition for specific skills to build personal and community resilience. Invitees include social service providers, health care and wellness practitioners, educators, librarians, community organizers, and members of the public interested in enhancing personal and community resilience.  

This training is offered by the Westchester Library System as an initiative of the Westchester Library System in support of the Westchester Resilience Coalition.   It is a response to requests of the Resilience Coalition for specific skills to build personal and community resilience. Invitees include social service providers, health care and wellness practitioners, educators, librarians, community organizers, and members of the public interested in enhancing personal and community resilience.

Where can I learn more about BREATH-BODY-MIND™ ?

Recommended reading and listening: Richard P. Brown and Patricia Gerbarg, The Healing Power of the Breath book and CD set. Print and e-book available on Amazon.com.  Copies are available for loan from the Westchester Library System.

For more information on Breath-Body-Mind and a schedule of workshops, including teacher training, see https://www.breath-body-mind.com/

The methods learning in the Breath-Body-Mind Introductory Workshop are for the participants to use in their own self-care practices. We strongly advise participants not to teach these practices to their clients or to any clinical populations until they have completed at least  Level-1 BREATH-BODY-MIND™ Teacher Training and received certification.

Level-1 training is offered at a number of locations surrounding Westchester. Based on the interest in our Introductory Workshop, we hope to schedule a Level-1 training in Westchester early in the spring of 2020.

Following the Introductory Workshop, a Learning Community will be hosted by WLS to encourage continued engagement with these techniques.
