Presentation on power of the mind in fighting cancer
INTERNATIONALLY recognised author, cancer survivor and health promotion pioneer Dr Ian Gawler is presenting a seminar, 'The Heart & Science of Health, Healing and the Mind', on Tuesday night.
Dr Gawler is being brought to Coffs Harbour by local meditation teacher David McRae.
The pair met in the 1970s when Ian had "incurable" bone cancer, and David later worked at the Gawler Foundation.
Dr Gawler said his focus was on helping people prevent cancer.
"A healthy lifestyle, eating well, exercising, and using the power of the mind are all things well proven to prevent the chronic degenerative diseases such as heart disease and diabetes, as well as cancer," Dr Gawler said.
"However, while people know these things in theory, many still struggle to do the right thing by themselves and their families."
At Tuesday's presentation at the Professional Centre (6.30pm to 9.30pm) people will experience techniques like mindfulness and meditation, and will learn more of exciting new research that validates and informs the value of mind power in preventing and fighting cancer.
