“(The benefits of meditation) begin at a molecular level and can change the way our genetic code goes about its business”
Ivana Buric from the Brain, Belief and Behaviour Lab in Coventry University's Centre for Psychology, Behaviour and Achievement after the release of their ground breaking research in June this year.
Ancient wisdom told us of how the mind had influence over the body’s potential to transform and heal, but it is only relatively recently that science has begun to back this up. This two-hour workshop for people facing the kind of health issues that come with daily physical and/or mental challenges as well as carers, family and close friends.
The morning will begin with a general discussion on the mind-body connection and the numerous documented health benefits of meditation, as well as showcasing the latest global research that shows how regular practice can influence genetic expression, allowing the body to more readily do what it is naturally designed to do. Heal and thrive.
The meditation practices undertaken during the workshop combine mindfulness, heart-based consciousness and focused inner healing, including a body scan with a deep dive right down to the DNA.
David is well-placed to lead such an important workshop, being a registered meditation teacher with further qualifications in epigenetics and geobiology. His own journey with a rare form of blood cancer informs his own practice as well as his teaching. As such, he fully understands the broad range of life issues surrounding a chronic health diagnosis.
