Phoenix Landing Wellness Retreat 2014

The Phoenix Landing Wellness Retreat happened this past weekend, spanning the 3rd and 4th of May, with a kickoff happening Friday the 2nd. It was a fantastic follow up to the first Wellness Retreat that happened almost two years ago. The attendance more than doubled, the speakers were awesome, and the entire event ran extraordinarily smoothly. Many thanks to everyone involved who helped support this event and make it a reality. I can’t wait for the next one!

The speaker list included Dr. Susan Orosz, Dr.  Scott Stahl, Dr. Rhode Stevenson, Dr. Irene Pepperberg, Dr. Beth Rhyne, Laura Ford, Dr. Lee Bolt, Dr. Lauren Powers, and others. Each hour and a half seminar was packed full of information – almost too much to take in at once. With the help of a few friends, I managed to take notes at about half of the lectures that happened during the retreat. Many have asked for copies, so I am uploading the here for your pleasure. Feel free to download them and read – some will have attached media (such as powerpoint presentations). If you have any questions please let me know!

All of these documents are in Microsoft Word .docx form – if you have trouble opening them I’m happy to send you a PDF format.
