Currently conducting executive training programs for Google, he is a board member of the Social Venture Network and the author is the author of Less: Accomplishing More by Doing Less.

The Dialogue will be held Thursday, June 4, at 7 p.m., at the Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center’s San Francisco offices.  Seating is limited. A $25 donation is requested.

Center for Mind-Body Medicine to offer spring programs in cancer treatment and food for health

05/05/2009

James S. Gordon, the Dean of Saybrook’s Mind-Body Medicine Program, and the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, now affiliated with Saybrook, are pleased to offer two training programs this summer. “CancerGuides II,” and “Food as Medicine.

CancerGuides II, which grew out of a conference that the New Yorker called “the most important alternative medicine meeting in America,” teaches health professionals and patient advocates to create safe, effective, individualized programs of comprehensive and integrative care for people with cancer and their families.

World leaders in integrative care and CancerGuides practice will help participants put their work in a larger social, historical and ecological context. Plenary speakers will offer a vision of cancer care that is fully consonant with the principles of integrative medicine, a vision which we believe will be reflected in policies the Obama Administration will implement.

“Food as Medicine,” a comprehensive clinical nutrition training program for healthcare professionals, will focus on sustainable nutrition, nutrition in practice, digestive healing, longevity and the aging brain, family nutrition, community nutrition, herbal remedies, and more. 

Both programs will be held June 11 – 14, in Washington D.C..
