“Cure occasionally, relieve often, and console always.”
Ambroise Paré, 16th-century physician
I love the spirit of Dr. Paré’s quote, acknowledging with humility that human health is larger than our comprehension and sophisticated beyond our tools. Well-being includes medicine to be sure, but it also includes appreciation, self-awareness, and community.

I’ll co-teach the retreat with Jeff Rubin, a very special person who brings 30+ years of experience with Buddhist meditation and his exploration of using illness and adversity as a vehicle for waking up. This program is an opportunity to practice or learn meditation, contemplate, and discuss together what it means to be healthy, and how one can have well-being even if, conventionally, one isn’t “well.” The Alexander Technique will be integrated into the curriculum to help us contact our body’s natural structure and ease, as well as to work more effectively with pain and stress cycles.
