Wisdom Workshops

In our Wisdom Workshops we explore state of mind in a small group setting.

A great place to start
(plus it’s included with your first acupuncture treatment):


The Art and Science of Thriving

Experts used to think that genes determine your health. But current research shows that your state of mind effects physiological processes that turn on and off the genes which degrade or repair your body. It turns out that your state of mind is the epicenter of your wellbeing and is the most important factor in health and resiliency.

You already have within you all that you need for wellbeing. The problem most people face is a widespread misunderstanding about how the mind works and where our wellbeing comes from. Most people attribute their dissatisfaction to outside circumstances and spend a lot of effort trying to change those circumstances so they can feel better. This leads to a great deal of unnecessary stress and personal struggle in work, relationships, health, and life.

In this uplifting workshop, I’ll share with you a simple understanding about how thinking, moods, and behavior work. This insight, as experienced, discovered, and taught by the late Sydney Banks, explains the wisdom and logic built in to the way the human mind and resiliency work.

Once you understand how the human operating system works, it’s easier to live in harmony with it and effortlessly thrive in work, relationships, health, and life, regardless of your circumstances. In fact the more you live in alignment with your true nature, the more you will experience synchronicity, intuition, and a sense of connection to the miraculous.

“As soon as you find out how the mind works, that’s the first major step toward happiness.”
