Stillpoint shares research on depths of happiness

 

Dr. Marc Baxter, from The Nevada Institute for Spirituality and Healthcare, will be presenting research on the depths of happiness that can be developed as part of our spiritual journey.

Leading researchers are now demonstrating how happiness is both deeply complex and yet beneficial to our physical, mental and spiritual health.  Dr. Baxter will demonstrate how we are able to move beyond a surface level definition of happiness to ultimately experience it in a new, profound way that can transform us from within.

Developing more compassion, empathy, and mindfulness for ourselves, as well as for others, is one of the most powerful ways to increase happiness in our lives and in the lives of those around us.

The presentation will take place at Stillpoint located at 8072 W. Sahara Ave, Suite D, Las Vegas, NV 89117 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on May 7th.

There is no cost for the presentation though freewill donations are appreciated. Seating is limited so reservation is recommended. Online reservation is available at http://stillpointcsd.org/events/event/compassion-as-a-way-of-life/

 

 

 

Dr. Mark Baxter is a practicing chiropractor specializing in holistic health care through use of the functional medicine approach for over thirty-five years.  Dr. Baxter’s extensive education on patient dietary and lifestyle modification coupled with adrenal, sex and thyroid hormone balancing, autoimmune disease, healthy weight loss and targeted nutritional protocols result in effective prevention and treatment strategies for many “diseases of ageing”.

This integrative approach to health care also affects the balance of brain neurotransmitters, which control mood, emotions and cognitive function and sets the stage for enhanced spirituality.  When combined with meditative and other spiritual practices, this approach greatly enhances our ability to be truly connected with, and more fully express who we are as a person and as a spirit and also enhances our ability to experience greater connection with the source of our spirituality and of all Creation.
