Mind-Body Week, D.C. 2014

The Mindfulness Center (TMC) is the host to Mind-Body Week D.C. (MBW-D.C.) – a ground-breaking public health initiative designed to increase awareness about the science and practice of evidence-based mind-body therapies for health and well-being. The past two MBW-DC events, held in Oct 2011 and April 2013 were huge successes with over 1,000 attendees participating in lectures and classes, featuring pioneering researchers and practitioners in the field of mind-body medicine including Dr. Herbert Benson, Director Emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine and Mr.John Schumacher, Founder and Director of Unity Woods, one of the first and highly respected local yoga studios in the D.C. Metro area. This movement has also drawn in Congressman Tim Ryan author of “A Mindful Nation.” On the heels of this success, TMC is looking forward to MBW-D.C. 2014 with a focus on the role of mind-body therapies in the management of pain.
