Sunday Meeting - Richard P. Brown, MD: "The Transformative Power of the Breath"

Sunday, November 5, 2017 - 11:00am
Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

We now have a world-wide epidemic of stress with anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, violence, addictive behavior. Dr. Brown will discuss a drug free, large group intervention based on simple techniques from yoga, qi-gong and orthodox Christian monastic practices that are scientifically based. After brief discussion of the science we will experience a brief practice and then share the effect on our mind-body-spirit.

Richard P. Brown, MD, associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, graduate of Columbia University Medical College and Cornell University Psychiatry Residency and Psychobiology/Psychopharmacology fellowship, lectures internationally and has co-authored over 100 scientific articles, books chapters and award winning books. His neurophysiological theory exploring effects of yoga breathing in treating anxiety, depression, PTSD and stress-related medical conditions has been validated in clinical trials. A certified teacher of Aikido (4th Dan), yoga, Qigong, and meditation, he provides Breath-Body-Mind to healthcare professionals, yoga teachers, mass disaster survivors, first responders, veterans, school teachers, and patients with psychiatric and medical conditions.
