As individuals, and as communities of people living together on our small planet, we are facing challenges never before encountered – and stress levels that are off the charts! The world has changed, and we must change with it.
Now is the time to apply the tools we have to create healing – wholeness and balance that is sustainable, effective, and satisfying. Fortunately, the same tools that create wholeness and balance at the individual level prove to be the source of harmonious and effective action at the collective level – what Gandhi meant by “Become the change you want to see.”
In this workshop we will explore the use of deep relaxation, guided imagery, and authentic conversation to release stress, create inner peace, and focus your skills, talents, and gifts to heal ourselves and the world we live in.
About Dr. Emmett Miller
Often acknowledged as one of the fathers of Mind/Body Medicine, Dr. Miller is a physician, poet, musician, and master storyteller, whose multicultural heritage has given him a unique social, medical, and spiritual perspective. His commitment to helping us to reclaim our inborn personal wisdom, integrated with the scientific knowledge and techniques of modern medicine, has allowed him to unite seemingly disparate fields of knowledge and experience. For over 30 years, it has been his inspiration and his challenge to help people—individuals, families, and organizations discover this truth for themselves. Millions have been touched by his message of hope, his vision of a brighter future, and his spirit of wellbeing. As a physician, health educator, and a pioneer in a field that is now on the cutting edge of modern medicine, Dr. Miller brings us a deeper understanding of how the mind and body can work in harmony to produce healing, balance and wellness.
Dr. Miller, a graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine has been a lecturer and preceptor at Stanford University and The University of California, as well as other universities and medical schools. In 1977, he gained international prominence as a founder and Medical Director of the Cancer Support and Education Center, (Now the Center for Healing and Wellness), and, in 1987, as a co-convener of the groundbreaking California State Task Force on Self-Esteem. A pioneer in the development of mind-body medicine, he is has been widely acclaimed for his invention and development of the first deep relaxation/guided imagery intro audiocassettes. His tapes and CDs are widely used by such medical facilities as Kaiser Permanente, the Mayo Clinic, and by health professionals, business people, performers, and athletes, including members of the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Team.
Dr. Miller is the author of numerous books, beginning with the seminal Selective Awareness for Self-Healing, in 1973, and including his latest contribution, Deep Healing: The Essence of Mind/Body Medicine. Deep Healing is a bold step forward in the theory, philosophy, and practice of self-healing and peak performance. In the book, Dr. Miller shows clearly how beliefs and images become actual physical events in the body, and includes detailed instructions and training in how you can learn to use images and emotions to change your mind and change your life. His tapes and CDs do more than just talk about how it can be done; they take you by the hand and guide you through the experience of doing it, in a most enjoyable way.
The instruments Dr. Miller offers here are not scalpels and drugs...but words and experiences—images, memories, and emotions. They do not substitute for or replace needed medical or psychological therapy—instead, they enable you to do your part in changing your diet, exercise patterns, thoughts and relationships. His techniques teach you to relax and his presentations inspire you to take charge of your life and realize your full potential. He has shared his insights into Deep Healing on hundreds of television and radio shows. He has appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, Los Angeles Times, Journal, as well as American Health, Prevention, Essence, Women's Day, Woman's World, Yoga Journal, and Shape magazines. His columns have appeared in more than 30 newspapers and magazines.
Dr. Miller maintains a private practice in the S.F. Bay Area and in Nevada City, California where he sees

"I have been orbiting around Dr. Emmett Miller for some 30 years now. When I arrived in Nevada County we began to spin closer and finally some 8 or 9 years ago we met!
While friends had told me of his insightful skills as a therapist, I finally got to experience the full breadth of Emmett’s many other talents. He has an unwavering commitment to service, to individuals and the planet.. He introduced me to the potent process of the World Café and it’s creative uses. The creativity of his mind and it’s expression though the use of music and media continues to amaze me. His presence is in itself calming and at the same time his enthusiasm for life is contagious. One can only give thanks that such beings are on the planet at this most important time."
