  • Change Your Health by Changing Your Mind

    Ginger Hill, MS, MCHES, Christian Wellness Speaker & Coach, Good Health for Good Works

    Christians have the responsibility to leverage and maximize the positive impact of the gift of good health of body, mind and spirit that has been given to us and, when possible, invest in improving and maintaining our health as an act of worship of and service to God. Why? Because good health practices help us to offer our bodies and minds to God so that we can be His ambassadors in the world (2 Corinthians 5:19-20) and do the "...good works, that God prepared in advance for us to" (Ephesians 2:10). MORE >

    Yet, despite our best intentions to practice good health habits, most of us struggle. For many of us, the problem is not that we do not have enough knowledge or even resources. More than we need more information or innovation, we need a change of mind. Changing our health starts with changing (or renewing) our mind! (Romans 12:1-2)

    In this 30-minute sample of our Change Your Health by Changing Your Mind Workshop, we will explore:

    1. The call to offer all of ourselves (body, mind and spirit) for God’s service.
    2. The consequences of the poor health practices of many Christ-followers today.
    3. A few of the unhealthy mindsets that hinder our ability to follow through on consistently practicing good health habits and how to challenge them with the word of God.
    4. Practical strategies and encouragement to take steps forward towards good health in freedom and confidence in the grace, mercy and power of God.

  • I Promise Not to Make You Quack Like a Chicken!

    Melanie Griffis Jones, MA, LPC, ACCTH, TraceSuccessful and Griffis/Jones & Associates

    Every time I am someplace with a new group of people and am asked what I do for a living, my response usually gets all the attention. All I have to do is say I am a clinical hypnotherapist and the room goes quiet. Then, when I hear someone say they can't be hypnotized, I simply smile. The truth is no one can be unless they are willing. The opposite is true too. Everyone can be hypnotized because hypnosis is actually self hypnosis. Also, you won't "cluck like a chicken" unless you really want to do that. On the other hand, you can release unwanted weight, stop smoking, eliminate your fear of flying, or improve your athletic abilities with just a few sessions of clinical hypnosis. MORE >

    About eight years ago, I took a six day intensive hypnotherapy training as a creative way to get the continuing education credits I needed to keep my professional licensure. I was intent on "just doing the 6-day and not any of the additional long term training that was offered." That was until the 5th day when I saw first hand how very powerful this was. The instructor said you can see greater results in five sessions of hypnotherapy than you can in 90 sessions of talk therapy. By day five, I was a believer. I went on for a two year internship and another five years of advanced training.

    I also started to assistant teach the process. Clinical hypnotherapy is nothing like stage hypnosis. It can help people deal with PTSD, anxiety, abuse issues from childhood and even change the way we deal with grief. Did I mention past lives and how we can explore who we were or why we keep doing some things we don't want to do anymore? Even if all you want to do is learn how to relax, I can share easy tools for calming yourself when stressed. And if you want to bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken, go to a stage show and the hypnotist there can make it happen for you.

  • 15 Days to Better Health-The 30 minute workout

    Michael Gow, CEO, Vision Worldwide Consultants, LLC

    My presentation is intended for all those who want to become healthier as soon as possible. For as little as 30 minutes a day you can achieve better health and fitness. I believe there is nothing more important in our lives than good health. Many days we wake up either feeling great or not and how we deal with our health dictates how our lives will be mentally or physically. I am not a physician or a professional physical trainer/therapist. MORE >

    I have taken no medical classes or use trainers at health clubs. But what I have is a lifetime of sports activities and experiences that I believe will be beneficial to everyone. It is very important to take action sooner versus later not only to maintain good health but to address any health related issues where physical activity will be beneficial. Why did I choose the title “15 days to better health? I believe if someone who dedicates 15 consecutive days of proactive exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes they will not only see signs of better health but more importantly it will lay the foundation to a change in your lifestyle as your health is very important and those 15 days will be the start of a lifetime of better health.

  • Chapters – The Forty Year Rehearsal

    Roger Renik, Support Group Facilitator for "Chapters"

    Decades before the formal diagnosis of Depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Roger came to understand that something in his life was "different" from what he viewed as "normal" in others. Although he carried on daily living as best possible, unexplained sadness tied in with repeating habits and emotional breakdowns brought him to seek professional assistance. He now offers an interactive and non-medical discussion focusing on life experiences up to and following the diagnosis. MORE >

    This presentation is an honest dialogue on how everyday living can be reshaped and life can continue regardless of your own personal challenges.
