Description

TALKS FOR FREEDOM:

YouCanFreeUs is honoured to present Dr. David Hamilton speaking about "How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body", on December 3rd at The Royal Geographical Society (RGS), as part of "Talks For Freedom". This series of talks, given by top speakers and covering a variety of interesting topics, has the objective of raising awareness and funds to support victims of modern slavery.

THE CONTENT:

Learn all about the mind-body connection and how to harness it for health and wellness. Learn about the placebo effect and how belief can alter biology. Also learn about the physical effects of mindfulness, and even how visualisation shapes the brain and causes actual changes in the body. You will also learn about the specific effect of positive feeling on blood vessels and how visualisation practices can alter immune function. David will also share examples of strategies used by people around the world that helped facilitate their recovery from injury, illness and disease.

THE SPEAKER:

David has a PhD in organic chemistry and spent 4 years in the pharmaceutical industry developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their health. He is an accomplished author with 10 published books, regular blogs on his website and occasional blogs for the Huffington Post (US version). David is the ‘Kindness Tsar’ for Psychologies Magazine and writes ‘The Kindness Conversation’ and the ‘Kindness Project’. He is also the ‘Life Hacks’ monthly columnist for Soul & Spirit Magazine and in 2016 was voted ‘Best writer’ by readers of Kindred Spirit Magazine. David is featured in the award-winning documentary, ‘HEAL’. He appears regularly in the media and was recently featured on Channel 4’s live show ‘Sunday Brunch’ in the UK and ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ in the USA.

David is an advocate for kindness and is working passionately to help inspire a kinder world.

All proceeds donated to YouCanFreeUs to help fight modern slavery.
