Mindfulness for Healing; an Interactive Community Event

PLEASANTON, CA, June 22, 2015—The Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation (SJWHTF), a non-profit organization that provides funds for complementary therapies to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment, announced today it will conduct a free seminar for the community. The “Mindfulness for Healing” seminar will be held on Saturday, July 11, 2015 from 10 AM to 12 PM at Alain Pinel Realtors, 900 Main Street, Suite 101, Pleasanton.

Kathy Lorenz, from the Healing Journey, is a specialist in treating cancer patients. She combines her practice of acupressure massage with guided healing imagery. Using guided imagery, Kathy is able to help her clients ease their pain and she teaches them techniques for using imagery on their own when they need relief. Short exercises during this 2 hour seminar will teach participants how to focus internally and pay attention to feelings in the present moment. “Mindfulness increases your capacity to observe what is going on in your body, “ notes Kathy. “With a guided internal body scan, you can bring the messages from your body into consciousness and work with them to heal in a powerful way.”

The public is invited to attend this free event, but reservations are required.
