How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body - 1 day workshop 

Learn all the ways that your mind can impact your body, from how the placebo effect works and the way belief impacts the brain and body, to how positive feelings like love, elevation, and compassion, can impact the heart, arteries, and immune system, even to how visualisation techniques can physically shape brain circuits and impact the body. Also learn some practical strategies for harnessing your mind and emotions to help your body. David will also share visualisation strategies that have been shown to enhance the immune system and that have been used in clinical trials for cancer patients.

About David: After completing his PhD, Dr David Hamilton worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 4 years, developing medicines for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect - how people in drug trials who receive placebos often experience the same improvements as those on the actual drugs - he resigned from the industry to study and teach the mind-body connection. David is now author of 10 books, including the bestsellers, 'How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body' and 'I Heart Me: The Science of Self-Love', 'The 5 Side Effects of Kindness', and 'The Little Book of Kindness' (Feb 2019). David is the Kindness Tsar for Psychologies Magazine and contributes regularly for the magazine. He has also been a guest on Channel 4's, 'Sunday Brunch Live', in the UK, and been featured on CBS Sunday Morning in the USA. He was recently interviewed live on 'Scotland Tonight' on the health benefits of kindness.
