Workshop Details

Our stress and its symptoms are maintained unconsciously as a distraction from emotional issues and harmful thinking. By addressing these issues, the body can let go, thereby improving physical health and enhancing performance and the ability to feel joy.
The Path is a model of resilience based on Stephen Sideroff’s forty years of research and clinical work in helping people overcome personal blocks and achieve high levels of success, while optimizing personal health. Based on how the brain and personality develop, The Path shows you the signposts and distills the journey down to one question, “Am I on The Path or off The Path?”
During this workshop, you’ll learn about the connection among emotions, stress, and physical symptoms. You’ll be shown relaxation and biofeedback practices, and learn how to cope with destructive patterns such as anger, depression, perfectionism, obsessions, procrastination, and addictions.
Your body will be more resilient, and heal and perform better. Discussion and experiential work, including hands-on use of a biofeedback machine, will facilitate self-awareness, emotional release and body self-regulation. This program is especially beneficial for health care professionals in their work with clients and patients.
Recommended reading: Sideroff, The Path: Mastering the Nine Pillars of Resilience and Success; Lowen, Joy: The Surrender to the Body and to Life.
