Join our Online Mind-Body Skills Group with the support and guidance of Dr. Onna Lo MD, who has been facilitating groups for more than 14 years.
What is Mind Body Skills Groups?
Mind-Body Skills Groups have been modeled from the Founder of Center of Mind Body Medicine, Dr. James S. Gordon, MD. These highly experiential and integrative techniques such as meditation, guided imagery, autogenic training, breath work, movement, self expression and other approaches are taught in a supportive environment to help you deal with life changes, stress and illness.
Our groups have been designed to be practical and grounded into your daily life. You’ll integrate what you’ve learned immediately into your daily life.
Emphasis on community and group experience.
An online Mind-Body Skills Group is grounded in self-reflection. Sharing with others in a structured and intimate group format affords a unique space to acknowledge, honor, and express the various aspects of your experience. These groups support you in being witness to your own as well as other’s emotions and experiences. We find that sharing and connecting with others creates a wonderful learning and healing environment.
Our groups emphasize a sense of community. They are small, with 8-10 people and meet on a set day and time for 8 sessions (usually weekly), with each group lasting 2-hours. This format provides an opportunity to begin to integrate the mind-body skills into your life, in a real and practical way, with the support of the group to help you work through any difficulties along the way.
What is it NOT?
This is not a webinar nor an open or drop-in group. Instead this in an intimate and highly-supportive educational experience with Dr. Onna Lo. This is not a treatment nor a doctor’s appointment with Dr. Onna Lo. There is an application process and phone call with Dr. Onna Lo to help you make sure it’s the right fit. You are not establishing a doctor-patient relationship with Dr. Onna Lo by participating in this group.
This group should not replace the support of a mental health professional.
