The Power of Happiness and Sadness: Why You Need Both for a Truly Healthy and Balanced Life. With Steven E. Hodes, M.D.
Join us for this ongoing free lecture and dialogue series in Manhattan with Steven E. Hodes, M.D., author of Meta-Physician on Call for Better Health: Metaphysics and Medicine for Mind, Body, and Spirit (Praeger Publishers, 2007), as he shares his body, mind, spirit approach to revitalizing health on all levels. We live in a culture that abhors discomfort of any kind. Pharmaceutical companies and physicians contribute to the belief that we should ‘anesthetize’ ourselves to any negative feelings. * Many of us suffer under the illusion that we are supposed to be happy all the time and we’ll do anything to avoid our discomfort, pain and sorrow. As a result, we miss what it is to be truly human and truly whole. * In this lecture and discussion evening, Dr. Steve will explore the medical and physiological explanations for our happiness and sadness, and discuss why it is essential that we embrace our low points as much as we revel in our moments of joy.. Steven E. Hodes, M.D., is a board certified physician with almost 30 years in private practice. His new book, Meta-Physician on Call for Better Health: Metaphysics and Medicine for Mind, Body, and Spirit (Praeger Publishers, 2007) explores the connections between metaphysics, medicine, and healing.

The water of the glacier is the Earth’s blood. “This symbolic metaphor of human and nature is revealed in the improvisational Butoh dance as it reflects the passions, destruction, fragility and transformation found in nature and withinour selves. One has the opportunity to connect and bring into oneness the balance of humanity innature and natures with humanity” “Red Ice Feather; Blood of the Earth” is a celebration and requiem dance spawned by the mystery and heritage of the thousands of years old ice and the wisdom it stores.
