    Special Event Recording: Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy
    An evening with Dr. William Breitbart, exploring what makes life meaningful.  The participants of this special event will become familiar with the common existential concerns confronting people with life-threatening disease and will become familiar with existentially oriented interventions that have been found to be effective in treating despair. In the realm of uncertainty, there is an opportunity to create and hope for the future.

    Special Event Recording: Anticancer Living
    Introducing the concept of “Mix of Six”, Anticancer Living provides an informed case that building social and emotional support, managing stress, improving sleep, exercise and diet, and minimizing exposure to environmental toxins work together to promote an optimal environment for health and well-being.

    “From the moment we are born, we are seekers. But our culture encourages an increasingly desperate kind of seeking, a frantic striving for success, achievement, consumption—even relentless self-improvement. At the end of our task-filled days, we are captured by what we have left undone, ignoring anything kind, good or beautiful we offered the
    world that day. We live in perpetual, weary despair, afraid that what we have done—indeed, who we are—will never be enough.”
