Experience a mind-bending day long workshop with Dr. Gabor Maté and Diederik Wolzak, exploring how our early environments powerfully influence the way we think, and how we interpret “what is” through this filter.

Once we are aware of how our mind creates our world, we can access greater resilience and choice in responding to the present, and in determining our future. This awareness is helpful in overcoming addiction, illness and physical and emotional pain.

Interspersed throughout the workshop, you will learn several short powerful meditations from the Kundalini Yoga tradition, taught by Sat Dharam Kaur ND, to help develop enhanced responsiveness of the brain and nervous system..
