Body Mind Health Retreat with Dr. Joe Kosterich & Richard Boyd

July 30th, 2013

Please Note: This event has been postponed until further notice

Maitraya Private Retreat
Saturday & Sunday, September 14 & 15, 2013

When we are born we are in a marriage of our body to our mind for life. Over time that relationship like that of a marriage is unconditional in the sense it exists whatever we are experiencing.

We would all say we choose health but over time for many of us we start to subconsciously choose sickness thru many different indirect ways.

This experiential & educational 1.5 day workshop addresses the "bodymind switch" which governs the overall state of illness or wellness that we manifest in our body and our mind.

Medical doctor Joe Kosterich and Bodymind psychotherapist & trauma neuroscience specialist Richard Boyd come together for this retreat to work with this "switch" that exists within us all and to look at how we "switch on" wellness by choice, habit, mindset and lifestyle.

You will take away key tips and skills on how to operate the bi-directional link between the body and our mind and how each influences the health of the other. You will learn how we are the masters of our own bodymind and its state of being. In between you can take in the world class views of the Albany coastline and Maitraya resort.

If you want to improve your overall health in a sustainable way then this will be 2 days well spent in terms of the experience, tools and advice that we can offer you. This workshop is to be held in the beautiful 5 star Maitraya luxury private retreat just outside Albany. Come spoil yourself and change your life!!
