NEW: Meetup to Retrain your brain to heal from chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, fibromyalgia or anxiety

New theories of the underlying processes of these illnesses have resulted in highly effective tools.

The Gupta Programme was developed by Ashok Gupta as he healed from chronic fatigue. The idea is that after an initial infection, the brain got stuck in a feedback loop, reacting to symptoms by revving up a fight or flight adrenaline response, which would bring on more symptoms. The brain is retrained to not be reactive to what is simply an adrenaline cycle. It has also been used successfully to retrain the brain to not overreact to chemicals, or to lingering pain signals in fibromyalgia, or to anxiety responses.

When a person is working on detoxifying or healing from an injury or active infection, the Gupta Programme is a helpful adjunct because it helps the body shift to spending more time in a parasympathetic nervous system response (instead of a sympathetic nervous system fight, flight, or freeze response). This is conducive to healing, detoxification, digestion, and the ability to rest deeply.

See schedule and directions on the Meetup site.

Mondays, 10 to 11:30 a.m.

October 12 – November 2

Writing Workshop: Write to Heal

Writing to Heal can include many aspects. Expressing emotions frees up energy and can reduce stress. We can go a step beyond that to reframe situations and gain perspective. We can choose to examine our self-talk and consciously shift it. We can also affect outcomes in our lives by writing the scripts of our lives as healing adventures.

The first session will be on Increasing Resiliency, with writing exercises based on research findings from positive psychology.

No writing experience required. Please bring your own writing materials.
