The Slow Medicine Wheel of Health encompasses seven aspects of wellness – the physical, the mental-emotional, our relationship to others, our relationship to the natural world, our community, our relationship to the Divine, and our life’s purpose work. Each “spoke” is a moving part with the potential to activate our innate healing response mechanism, and each spoke furthermore is dynamic – interacting with and amplifying the power of the other spokes. In other words, our wellness is not only the sum total of each spoke, or each moving part, but it is also the synergistic relationship between them.
In this five-day workshop, Dr. Finkelstein will guide participants in taking inventory, embarking on a journey of discovery, and cultivating a life filled with passion, meaning, and purpose – thereby elevating the path of healing into the adventure of a lifetime. Through journaling; moving the body in joyful ways; creating art; reading inspirational texts; spending quality time in nature; preparing food that nourishes the body, mind, and soul; exploring how to foster intimacy in relationships; and otherwise activating and integrating the seven spokes of the Slow Medicine Wheel of Health, this workshop will guide participants on living from the heart – which in turn optimizes wellness on every level and proves to be the best medicine of all.
