Transformation, Leadership & Spirituality in Medicine and its Application to Opiate Addiction

Transformation, Leadership & Spirituality in Medicine Conference

Carrier Clinic® would like to invite you to a unique conference on the Opioid Crisis, recently declared by President Trump as a public health emergency.

This program will feature a very unique format. Our first group of speakers will address this epidemic from a larger policy perspective and how it is destroying our society, our homes, and our children. Then, holistic speakers will offer integrative solutions with diet, exercise, lifestyle management, and nutrition. The program will conclude examining the role of faith and spirituality with an address from noted monks from India.

Light refreshments will be served.

We will also feature live demonstrations and interactive audience sessions on mindfulness, visualization and yoga!

Seating is limited and all attendees must register online. (See below.)

Background & Objectives

We are in the midst of an incredible global movement in human consciousness – thanks to the success of inspirational world leaders such as Jack Canfield, Louise Hay, and Eckhart Tolle. Individuals are transforming themselves and their communities through diet, exercise, meditation, mindfulness, and yoga.

Transformation is also a key part of the growing “Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability” (LOHAS) movement. This is a nearly $300 billion U.S. marketplace focusing on “the larger interconnections between global economies, cultures, environments, and political systems … (which are as important as) the interconnections of mind, body, and spirit within individuals.”
