Brief Program Description

Based on a combination of brain research and the book, The Power of Positive Thinking, by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, this workshop will explore the detrimental effects of stress on life and how stress is the number one cause of aging and a major contributor to illness. Participants will learn how to lengthen their lives by determining their purpose, reducing damaging stress, and creating an optimistic daily outlook. Participants will also learn the importance of laughter. After all, consider how long most of the major comedians have lived (George Burns, Bob Hope, Redd Foxx) or are reaching (Phyllis Diller, Betty White)!
