Catalyst for Change: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Neuroscience

with Michael Lee, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, Dip.Soc.Sci, Dip.T., M.A.

November 16 - 18, 2018

Join Michael Lee of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy for an enlightening exploration of certain aspects of Yoga and the teachings of Buddha that focus directly on the process of creating change in human behavior.

Discover the power of ancient yogic wisdom as you engage in:

  • Mindful Yoga practices using the Phoenix Rising Method—a holistic, client-centered approach to Yoga Therapy
  • Meditation, self-reflection, and integration
  • Open dialogue and group discussion

Catalysts for life change and empowerment, these approaches are exceedingly relevant for the modern world. They have proven successful with cancer patients, trauma survivors, and in relationship counseling. Learn how the ancient teachings are supported by current neuroscience research and recent developments in psychological theory and practice.
