In the February 2016 Newsletter just posted on the Newsletter page, two upcoming events are noted. A third has just been confirmed.
Saturday March 19, 2016 – Webinar on the topic of diet and activity in ME/CFS and FM with Kinesiologist Cory Fagan and Registered Dietitian Rory Hornstein. This presentation addresses the challenge of staying fit and maintaining a health weight for people with significant energy limitations. Full registration details will be posted soon – the cost will be $15/$7.50 for low income. You can participant in person at Self Connection Books in Calgary or by real time audio/video internet connection. Registration will also give you access to past webinars organized by me on the Self Connection Books website.
Wednesday May 11, 2016 for International Awareness Day – Webinar on the topic of neuroplasticity and its uses in mood, persistent pain and overall wellness. Registration details will be posted as soon as speakers and topics are confirmed.
June 11/12, 2016 – Weekend Energy Retreat – This is an exciting new venture capitalizing on the increasing expertise developing in Calgary to assist individuals with ME/CFS and FM.
Small group, practical experience with 4 local experts over 2 days – We will meet for 3 hours/day on each of Saturday and Sunday. We hope we have found a balance between enough content to attract out of towners who don’t otherwise have the access to this expertise while accommodating our energy limits. You will leave this with concrete self management steps you can take to improve your health and quality of life.
