Dr. Lisa Miller of Columbia University – Our Awakened Brain brought by Quest in Recovery

Are you curious about the role of spirituality on mental health and wellness?

Join Quest in Recovery and Synchronicity for a Cinco de Mayo mental health and wellness event at Synchronicity with special guest, Dr. Lisa Miller of Columbia University, founder of the Spirituality Mind Body Institute.

During this hour-long workshop, Dr. Miller will dive deeply into her pioneering research which merges psychological science with spirituality, discuss the quantifiable effects of spirituality on health, resilience, and thriving, and provides some of the practices she has used with US Military officials, government and business leaders, teachers, and healthcare workers to achieve what she terms a “quest orientation”.  Whether you already know the value of a spiritual orientation in building and maintaining your mental and emotional wellbeing, or are interested to learn more, don’t miss this incredible event.

*This event is free to attend at Synchronicity, but limited to the first 50 participants. There is an option to join virtually.

About Quest in Recovery

Quest in Recovery is a local nonprofit whose mission is to create a peer-supported community designed to give young adults healthy, fun and engaging ways to share their recovery stories. Their program is designed to give others the gift of recovery through weekly recreational activities, monthly educational workshops and service opportunities with other nonprofits. By involving the greater community, we hope to lower barriers of cost and access to these essential resources because we believe that one person truly can change the world of one person who feels they are alone. We strive to change that: from stigma to awareness, loneliness to community, shame to compassion one day, one why at a time.
