Dr. Brad Lichtenstein, ND, BCB – Breathing Your Way to Health
How much attention are you giving to your breath as a means to promote your health? On average, you breathe about 24,000 times per day and breath retraining has been shown to efficiently and safely reduce blood pressure, improve sleep, regulate hormones, create mental alertness, help with focus, as well as decrease stress. No expertise is required, just your lungs!
In this experiential seminar, Dr. Brad will explore the biochemistry, physiology and psychology of breathing, the symptoms associated with dysfunctional breathing, and easy ways to restore balance through proper, diaphragmatic breathing. Not only is breath a simple way to connect mind – body – spirit, learning functional breathing helps balance the nervous system, thereby decreasing numerous symptoms.
Dr. Brad Lichtenstein believes in the power of breath to restore health and balance. As a naturopathic physician in private practice and a professor at Bastyr University for over two decades, Dr. Lichtenstein has helped people embody the lives they want to live. His approach integrates naturopathic medicine, mind-body medicine and biofeedback, depth & somatic psychology, Eastern contemplative practices, yoga and movement, bodywork and end-of-life care. He participated in a joint research study between the University of Washington and Bastyr University where he provided over 500 guided meditations to hospice patients. Dr. Lichtenstein received his doctorate of naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University and is board certified in biofeedback.

During this powerful wake-up conversation, audience members discover:

Lauren Dillon-Merrill – Being Human: Embracing our Humanity from a Spiritual Perspective
The French idealist philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardiin once said, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” On my personal journey of being a spiritually evolving energetic practitioner and human being, I’ve seen some reoccurring themes among my clients. They struggle with shame, doubt, fear, and compromise, and seem to want to hold these emotions at bay, often labeling them negative or destructive to their overall well-being. What would happen if we viewed these emotions from a soul-based perspective and embraced them as friendly reminders of our ephemeral human experience? Would we show ourselves a bit more forgiveness, a little more understanding? In my discussion, we will explore the many ways to connect and embrace our humanity by using the many tools available in our spiritual tool kits, such as daily grounding, ritual, and positive intention setting.
Lauren Dillon-Merrill, the creator and owner of 3 Petals Healing, is a native Floridian that spent the summers of her youth running barefoot through the mountains of western North Carolina. Her love of the natural world and belief that all things are interconnected laid the foundation for the work she does with crystals and Esoteric Healing. Lauren is a Certified Practitioner of Esoteric Healing, and has been practicing for over a decade. She is passionate about using various energetic modalities to help her clients find the tools they need to restore inner balance and a sense of well-being. In addition to her study in energy work, Lauren graduated from Full Sail University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Arts and Design. She is a photographer and designer, and finds joy channeling her creativity through her other business, Se•lyn Boutique and Crystal Shoppe. Connect with her at:3petalshealing.com
