Promoting Health and Wellness Through Mind-Body Medicine


Hi folks!

Our next monthly mind-body workshop is Saturday, January 14. Register now to join Mindy Milam, LCSW, at the Arts & Wellness Center for a morning focused on exploring ways to increase your energy, health and awareness through the mind-body connection and create new beginnings to kick off the new year.  We appreciate your help spreading the word about the monthly mind-body workshops by sharing this information with your family, friends, and colleagues.

MBCLA is also tremendously appreciative to Faculty member José Calderón-Abbo, M.D. for announcing the workshops on his weekly radio show Whole Body Mental Health Radio on Wednesdays at 7pm on 102.3 WHIV, which you can also check out at or subscribe to the shows podcast at

We are also excited to announce a new, easy way to support MBCLA with the Amazon Smile program. When shopping on Amazon you can use Amazon Smile and then choose the MBCLA (Mind Body Center of LA) as your charity. Please keep this in mind if you use Amazon for holiday shopping. Here is the direct link Amazon Smile for MBCLA.  

Finally, much gratitude and appreciation goes to the Center for Mind-Body Medicine and the MBCLA and CMBM faculty who shared about how mind-body medicine can treat trauma and build resiliency in Baton Rouge as people heal from the affects of the flood. Speakers at the Trauma and Resiliency Conference that was held by the Bridge Center Baton Rouge November 14&15 included (pictured below from left starting top row):
