Join Dr. Eric Chatt for his workshop titled: “Interdisciplinary Mindfulness for Ourselves and Our Planet.”
This workshop is an interdisciplinary philosophical exploration into how practicing awareness, continuing learning, and examining one’s life can enrich our behavior and calling. We examine Naturopathic philosophy, Mayan shamanism, Greek philosophy, Christianity, Buddhism, and Native American thinking to discover common truths that we can apply to our lives. These ideas will be discussed in the context of grit, hope, and happiness. An interactive creative arts project crowns the presentation, so bring both sides of your brain.
Dr. Eric Chatt N.D. has been fascinated by sustainable living and medicine since he was eight years old. Today, healing pain and helping the environment are Eric’s primary concerns. As site manager of Beaver Ponds Environmental Education Center, he works with students on projects involving native and medicinal plants and high altitude sustainable agriculture.
