St. John’s University Offers Free Workshop

St. John’s University of Temecula will offer a free workshop, “Be Free from Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks” on Saturday, April 22 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

If we are not directly experiencing one of these health threatening problems, we probably know someone who is.  Life can be very stressful. These symptoms can also be side effects of prescription medications. We can learn how to harness our inner mind to reduce stress, quit smoking, manage our weight, comfortably give birth, and sleep better at night. We can also use our inner mind to resolve the root cause of our depression and anxiety that can rob us of our sense of safety and security.

After we have experienced stress for months or even years, panic attacks can seem to come out of nowhere, but they are a result of stress that has been building for some time.

We accept the fact that ‘we are what we eat’, and we are realizing that ‘we are also what we feel’.  When our feelings cause us to be anxious or depressed, we often don’t know what to do about it. Dr. Pamela Winkler, President of S.J.U. and Director of the S.J.U. Counseling Services stated, “We are seeing more and more clients experiencing chronic depression, anxiety and panic attacks. And this directly effects how well people are sleeping, which affects everything else in their lives.”

Dr. Winkler has worked with thousands of patients and helped them to gently resolve what had been causing problems on a deeper level. “We might be able to put our finger on what is worrying us, but resolving that problem is not the same thing,” explained Dr. Winkler, “the inner mind does know everything about a problem, and with proper guidance, our inner mind also knows how to resolve a problem completely and permanently.”

The Mayo Clinic, considered to be the most highly respected hospital in the United States, has included for many years hypnosis and hypnotherapy in every department of patient care, including obstetrics, pediatrics, geriatrics, and the treatment of mental health issues.

According to AARP, research reveals a clear link between depression and anxiety and chronic pain. If every day stress is getting the best of us, it may explain the increase of people who are suffering with insomnia, depression and anxiety. “We know the inner mind can resolve the root cause of chronic pain, just as it knows how to resolve anxiety, depression and panic attacks,” stated Dr. Winkler. “The inner mind can also resolve what is triggering these feelings. This enables us to be back in control of our lives and experience greater peace of mind.”

The mind-body connection is so intertwined, that once the mind begins to heal the mind, the mind automatically begins to heal the body. When we have peace of mind, we also can have a peaceful and healthier body.

Dr. Winkler’s free workshop will be offered from 2:00 to 4:00 Saturday afternoon, April 15th at St. John’s University. The University is located at 40945 County Center Drive, Suite H, in Temecula across from the Grace Mellman library.

If you are suffering with depression, anxiety or panic attacks, you will find this workshop helpful.  If you are a mental health professional with an interest in learning more about the tool of Hypnotherapy and how the mind can resolve deep or prolonged personal issues,  this workshop will also provide helpful information.
