New York - Richard P. Brown, MD, a New York psychiatrist who practices integrative medicine, is the guest of Les Fehmi, PhD, and Susan Shor Fehmi, LCSW for an Open Focus™ Attention Teleseminar entitled “A Safe Harbor” from 1 to 2 p.m. EST, August 1, 2012. Dr. Brown will discuss how trauma and negative experiences can affect the brain and the stress response systems in the body.
Dr. Brown will discuss his experiences, his research, and the practice of Open Focus™ as they relate to integrative approaches for mental and physical wellness. “Anything worth doing is worth doing effortlessly,”
Les Fehmi, one of the fathers of biofeedback and a Zen teacher, developed Open Focus™, a meditative practice that induces EEG patterns similar to those found in advanced, long-term meditators. Deeper, richer meditative states can help relieve physical and psychic pain.
