MENTAL HEALTH News:
Adonata Pyaga will present four free events at San Ildefonso Pueblo on overcoming trauma.
“Did you know there is a distinct brain state that forms during the experience of an emotionally upsetting event?” Pyaga said. “Cognitive approaches to your mental well-being, that is thinking or talking about your upset in a positive light, are not enough to bring quick and lasting relief. If you are weighed down by changing moods, physical stress symptoms, poor concentration and more, you will enjoy learning more!”
Highlights of Pyaga’s events include:
- Overview of the brain’s unique response to a traumatic event
- The benefit of understanding trauma when resolving anxiety, depression and addiction
- Fast and safe treatments and recovery when using whole brain approaches
- An experiential guided inner journey targeting one positive outcome
In a one hour gathering, expect to gain insight, experience inner comfort, and feel uplifted, Pyaga said.
