Using True ThrivingPractices to Activate Vibrant Health

Led by Douglas J. Moore, Ph.D. & Kathleen B. Corcoran, Ph.D.
Rescheduled due to inclement weather
NEW DATES: April 5 & 6, 2014, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (ET)

Join us for this 2-day workshop/retreat to explore and experience 10 essential practices you can develop to create a life of True Thriving™. Vibrant health of the whole person goes beyond stress management, it centers on life-style shifts that allow us to truly thrive.
  • Transform your emotions & rewire your brain
  • Experience mindfulness, meditation, self-inquiry & more
  • Convert reactive, survival-based habits into thriving skills
  • Discover 9 life strategies associated with the enneagram
  • Balance foundational & maladaptive energies

Studies show that stress can worsen or increase the risk of conditions like obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and asthma. Stress management techniques have been helpful with such conditions. However, the effects of stress management are limited until deeper life-style shifts are implemented that facilitate a vibrancy in health.

Drs. Corcoran and Moore have integrated the concepts of brain science, contemporary psychology & the wisdom of eastern methods into a comprehensive system that is foundational to our personal growth and transformation.
Come, explore your potential for True Thriving™.

This workshop is applicable to holistic practitioners and the general public interested in exploring how to truly thrive for vibrant health and not just get by in life. 12 CEUs are available to those participants who are psychologists, counselors, social workers, and marriage and family counselors in Ohio. CEUs are provided by the Conscious Living Consortium.
For questions, contact Kathleen Corcoran at (216) 462-0532 or kathleen@kathleenbcorcoranphd.com

Testimonial from Day 1:
"True Thriving™ helped me slow the world down and reconnect with myself. It helped me learn to be a better listener and to bring myself back to the present when my brain starts to drift. And most of al, it helped me to take notice of the victimization weed when it takes hold - and cut it at the root." Kelsey M. www.holisticmedicine.org/blog

Letter from Doug Moore, Ph.D., NE Ohio Chapter Past-President
Welcome to the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA) in Northeast Ohio! We are a group of doctors, licensed practitioners, students, and supporters who are all interested in holistic health. We embrace the principles of holistic medicine that integrate conventional and complementary therapies to promote optimal health for the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.

There is tremendous interest in holistic health throughout the NE region of Ohio. The major hospitals have integrated wellness programs, doctors are practicing acupuncture, and licensed practitioners from psychologists to massage therapists are integrating energy-based methods into their work. Based on the years of experience of our members and engaging networking events, we know that people are increasingly looking for practitioners who offer holistic health services. We are thrilled to support and promote this movement.

Over the past few years the AHMA NE Ohio chapter has sponsored a number of educational and networking opportunities for its members and the community. For example, we hosted a series of talks about the holistic heart, holistic brain, and holistic psychiatry. In addition, we co-sponsored a screening of the documentary, Forks Over Knives, which makes a well-researched and profound case for the health advantages of a plant-based diet.

In addition to continuing to offer educational opportunities, we are launching a new initiative to strengthen networking among the practitioners. A community forum is being designed for the website that will allow members to share information about their services, new programs, upcoming presentations, and recent publications.

You are invited to contact any of the board members for more information about AHMA in NE Ohio. Please sign our e-newsletter list so you can be informed of upcoming events. We hope to meet you at one of the upcoming meetings!
