Transform Your Health: Write To Heal – Duke Integrative Medicine
Join John Evans, MAT, MA, EdD for a transformative 6-week workshop using his landmark approach to healing. Discover opportunities for renewed health by accessing your inner healing voice.
Do you know that writing can help you to heal?
Research tells us that expressive writing has the power to help us transform our physical, mental, and spiritual health. In fact expressive writing has been proven to:
- Decrease the heart rate
- Lower blood pressure
- Enhance breathing
- Strengthen the immune system so that it can better fight off infection
- Improve self-esteem
- Help manage stress
Writing can help us face our most difficult challenges with past or present experiences and even future challenges. Put another way, when we write we can gain perspective on our circumstances, we provide provident information to our body, and we engage our internal healing resources.
During this 6-week workshop, John Evans will coach participants through a simple progression of exercises he has developed from his more than 25 years of working in the field. Participation requires neither any prior writing experience nor any aspiration to become a writer. In fact, the practices simply cultivate your natural and easy ability to express the ideas that define who you are and how you experience your life.
