“Information does not resolve unhealthy behavior. People who smoke or are two hundred pounds overweight are not acting out of stupidity or a lack of knowledge. What everyone needs is inspiration.”
Through the use of story-telling, sharing of personal insights, liberal amounts of humor, and respect for personal choices, participants are inspired to consider their values and personal responsibilities which influence their health. Rather than tell people what they should do to become healthy, Amanda offers various options – paths – for wellness, encouraging participants to choose their own. Several experiential sessions allow the participant to begin using holistic measures, experiencing stress reduction and health benefits right away.
This class was created by Amanda Murphy, a registered nurse who has been on both sides of healthcare – as a professional care-giver and as a patient. She shares her experiences from both lenses as she provides cutting edge, evidence-based information on the causes of disease and on preventative measures that can keep us healthier, happier, and more productive.
A four-hour Continuing Education version of this class has been approved for nurses and social workers. The purpose of this program is to enable the learner to understand and integrate holistic/integrative concepts, particularly self-care, into their personal and professional practices. This class is unique and creative, designed to engage, inspire, and empower the learner. Some of the topics covered include:
- Food as medicine
- Stress management
- Coping and relaxation strategies including humor and communication
- Several experiential sessions including guided imagery and spirituality.
