TEMECULA – St. John’s University will offer a free workshop, Saturday, Aug. 19, 2p.m. to 4 p.m., entitled “Be Free from Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks.” St. John’s University is located at 40945 County Center Drive, Suite H, in Temecula across from the Grace Mellman Community Library.

For people not directly experiencing one of these debilitating problems, they probably know someone who is. People can harness their inner mind to manage stress, quit smoking, control their weight, experience comfortable child birth and even sleep better at night.

Now people are learning to use their inner mind to resolve depression and anxiety that robs them of their sense of safety and security. They can also learn to resolve personal issues that typically began deep within the mind with memories that can later cause them to feel out of control.

“We are seeing more and more clients experiencing chronic depression, anxiety and more recently frightening panic attacks,” Dr. Pamela Winkler, director of the St. John’s University counseling services said. “These issues seem to have a life of their own and often seem to come out of nowhere. When these problems begin to interfere with how well people are sleeping, it effects just about everything else in their lives.”

The Mayo Clinic, considered to be the most highly respected hospital in the United States, has included hypnosis and hypnotherapy in every department of patient care for many years, including obstetrics, pediatrics, geriatrics and the treatment of mental health issues.

According to AARP, research reveals a clear link between depression, anxiety and chronic pain. If everyday stress is getting the best of someone, it may explain the increase in insomnia, depression and anxiety.

With proper guidance, the inner mind can resolve the root cause of anxiety, depression and panic attacks. The inner mind can also resolve what is triggering these feelings. This practice puts people back in control of their own sense of wellness.

The mind-body connection is so intertwined that once the mind begins to heal the mind, the mind automatically begins to heal the body. When people have peace of mind, they also can have a peaceful and healthier body, a body that is not holding stress in its muscles or joints.

To learn more about the power of the inner mind for resolving depression, anxiety and panic attacks and to register for workshop, call (951) 599-7550. Seating is limited. Early registration is suggested.
