Institute for Holistic Health Studies Offers Free Community Wellness Seminars

Looking for serenity (a.k.a. stress reduction) in your daily life? Consider stopping in to the Institute for Holistic Health Studies at Western Connecticut State University.

You’ll find small group workshops and panel discussions on wellness topics such as guided meditation, yoga, nutrition, fitness and the mind & body connection. The sense of peace and tranquility extends outside to a mediation garden designed, planted, and maintained by students as a place to stroll or sit in quiet reflection.

The Wellness Suite is located in Berkshire Hall on the Midtown campus. For a complete list of upcoming events, go to

Attendance is full for the 2016 Mental Health Professional Conference. This popular all-day event provides a comprehensive overview of tick-borne diseases and the impact they have on the brain.
