Since publishing my ebook, How to Manage Depression Without Drugs, I get a lot of questions about what I do to manage my health if I don’t take drugs, and I’m excited for the opportunity to address some of those questions with two workshops I’m teaching in October. I’m also super excited for the opportunity to teach at Yoga Shala, which is a safe and supportive space (and also where I practice yoga).
If you are local to the Sacramento/Northern California area, I would love to have you join me for one or both of these workshops. They are $35 each, or $60 for both. Follow this link to register via Yoga Shala. Here are the details:
Write to Heal // Saturday, October 11, 1-3p
The story we tell ourself creates the reality we experience. We all have an internal monologue telling ourself things that are either hurtful or helpful. We can change that monologue from debilitating to empowering and find healing through the practice of writing, which allows us to generate new stories and incorporate them during our every day life. In this two-hour workshop, author Janna Marlies Maron will guide participants in a process of discovering their current story, modifying it for healing, and claiming the strongest parts as a personal mantra.
Eat to Heal // Saturday, October 25, 1-3p
The food we love makes us feel like crap. The Western Diet that is so prevalent in America makes us sick, and it’s because the so-called food we eat isn’t really food, but food-like substance that lacks the true nutritional value of whole food. But changing our eating habits is hard, especially when the word “diet” implies a short-term program designed solely for the instant gratification of losing weight. In this two-hour workshop, learn how author Janna Marlies Maron has been treating both depression and multiple sclerosis with food, how to think about “diet” as a long-term plan for a healthy lifestyle, and how to gradually make changes by finding substitutes for the food you love.
