Online streaming events: Gut-brain connection and Emotional Agility

Stress eating during quarantine? Or the general mayhem of this pandemic bringing you down? That’s really simplifying the global situation we all find ourselves in – health problems existed long before the pandemic. So maybe there are health issues you wanted to tackle before 2020 that got derailed. Here is a great place to kick-start that journey to health. We’ve got a couple of events that might be for you.

Check out these online events, led by renowned doctors, Dr. Mitra Ray and Dr. Cindy Sholes.

Dr. Ray is a biochemist and author who helps people by educating them on how plant based whole foods can improve gut function and therefore brain function. What could be more beautiful than that? To learn more about Dr. Ray, visit her website here.

Hippocrates was not too far off the mark when he said “All disease begins in the gut.” While not all disease does, everything that goes through our digestive system does affect us. In this event, coming up soon (February 4, 2021!), Dr. Ray will focus on mental and emotional wellbeing through our microbiome and how to control the bugs in our gut.

Dr. Sholes is a neuroscientist and medical hypnotherapist and has helped many people face mental and emotional blocks head on and carve out pathways to achieving long held goals. To learn more about Dr. Sholes, visit her website here.

What is emotional agility? It is approaching your inner experiences in a mindful, values-driven and productive way. In this event, Dr Sholes will discuss “personal glass-ceilings” that limit us from living our full lives. Each person’s limitations are different, but all can be broken through. Here you will identify those subconscious reaction patterns, learn the critical questions to build the skill of emotional agility and discover how to break mental and emotional habits you may not realize you have.

Both events are part of the Palo Alto Speakers Series and tickets for both events can be purchased here on Eventbrite.
