Each year, thousands of new health books are published offering quick, easy lifestyle changes that will lead you to the “promised land” of overflowing vitality and boundless energy. While many of these approaches are valid, few are built to last. When confronted with the inevitable pressures and old habits, our best intentions often crumble.

Why? Most health solutions don’t go deep enough. In this intimate, experiential workshop with Dr. Deborah Zucker, she will be sharing the wisdom from her new book, The Vitality Map, and taking you on a journey into the deeper dimensions of health—beneath the diagnoses, symptoms, habits, diets, and exercises.

Drawing on her professional experience as a Naturopathic Physician as well as her own profound healing journey, Dr. Deborah will guide you through her 9 Keys to Deep Health, Joyful Self-Care, and Resilient Well-Being:

  1. Honoring Your Unique Life
  2. Facing and Embracing Your Shadows
  3. Strengthening Your Self-Awareness Muscles
  4. Cultivating Resilience
  5. Aligning with Your “Yes!”
  6. Experimenting with Playful Curiosity
  7. Discovering Easeful Discipline
  8. Inviting Support and Connection
  9. Living Like You Matter

Throughout the evening Dr. Deborah will be weaving together personal and professional anecdotes with guided meditation and small group exercises to help you to:

  • Understand how to engender a deeper relationship with and commitment to self-care, rooted in an awake relationship to your mortality and the precious gift and honor of stewarding your unique life.
  • Explore the role of your “shadows” as obstacles to creating and sustaining the changes you seek in your health journey and learn how to free yourself from the hold of your shame, self-judgments, and unconscious patterns of avoidance and self-sabotage.
  • Cultivate the self-awareness, actions, skills, and attitudes to transform your most fundamental relationship to your own self-care, empowering you to create a sustainable foundation for long-term health and well-being.
