If you don’t heal the heart, you will never heal the body. – Dr. Michelle Robin

In this special BONUS episode of Small Changes Big Shifts, we are joined by two of Resolve Counseling & Wellness Center Licensed Counselors in Kansas City, Allison Kidd, LMSW and Jessica Nickels how to live a healthy life by making small changes for big shifts but also two incredible upcoming events: Care4U2 and The SHIFT Experience.

The 3rd Annual Care4U2 is A self-care event for helping professionals that is happening on Friday, October 25th 2019 from 9:00 am – 3:30pm at the KU Edwards Campus.

Helper: someone who spends their time and energy supporting someone else. (social workers, counselors, clergy, doctors, nurses, community health workers, aids, wellness professionals…) Is that you? This event if for you!

This year’s CARE4U2 theme is Leave Feeling Better. Speakers will cover topics from body image, relationships, grief, communication, mindfulness and wellbeing. There will be local resources onsite with information booths. One of our vendors will have massage and acupuncture available!

Resolve’s CARE4U2 event includes 4 CEUs, lunch and networking.

The SHIFT Experience

Click here to learn more about The SHIFT Experience

We believe that whole health wellbeing comes from four components or “quadrants”: Mechanical, Chemical, Energetic, Psycho-spiritual

Being healthy and staying well for a lifetime takes more than being diligent in one area. It requires balance and harmony in all areas to create whole person health. Wellness empowerment through lifestyle behaviors means practicing balance and putting the odds in your favor through small changes that make big shifts in whole health outcomes.

A team of Wellness Coaches, Chiropractors, Registered Nurses, and Mental Health professionals will help you understand the four Quadrants of Wellbeing and support you as you work towards you own personal small changes. The program is mentored by Dr. Michelle Robin and managed by Wendy Basch, RN. Sessions will be available at 4 locations in the Kansas City area (including Your Wellness Connection in Shawnee, KS) AND even in your community.

Mantra of the day: Stay cool, calm, and collected.
