45-minute donation-based classes offered daily
In this program, neuroscientist, health researcher, and educator Dr. Deborah Norris shares the practices that have worked in her journey and in treating and working with thousands of other people who have come to her for guidance for healthy living.
Her own published research working with veterans and children, as well of the research of hundreds of other scientists has proven not only the benefits of these practices, but the intricate physical mechanisms by which they work. With decades of experience, Dr. Norris’ specialty is teaching the most effective practices to connect the mind with the body to heal the body and restore healthy function.
