Wind River is leveraging its depth of talent to give you and your spouse or partner a chance to add to your "tool box" of "stress busters", and help you improve your coping skills and overall well-being.
The day will be filled with small experiential workshops and you will rotate from one session to another (think of mini samplers). Together we will sample:
- Breath-work and mindfulness exercises to lower stress during anxious times
- Energy medicine to restore balance and harmonies in the body
- Understanding how your brain works to improve communication (with doctors, spouses and yourself!)
- Movement to activate your immune and natural healing system
