Body of Knowledge Lecture Series

4th Annual Body of Knowledge Lecture Series 2011

The Body of Knowledge Lecture Series presents premier integrative health presentations for medical, health and human service professionals and individuals passionate about wellness in the Calgary area.  Sponsored by Mount Royal University and presented by its Integrative Health Institute, the series assembles internationally recognized researchers, clinicians, educators and practitioners whose work focuses on healthful living and whose perspectives and practices have global influence.

Participants have the opportunity to experience the "wellness talks of the town" enjoying candid and relaxed evening lectures with question-and-answer dialogues followed by full-day workshops featuring renowned integrative health leaders offering profound insights and facilitating lively discussion.

Now in its 4th season, we are delighted to announce an expanded program for 2011 featuring evening lectures and accompanying interactive workshops.

The themes for 2011 address prominent health issues prevalent today and present leading integrative health experts to address cancer care and nutrition.

The Body of Knowledge Speaker Series was launched in 2007-2008 and since then audiences have enjoyed outstanding presentations from the following physicians and leading health experts: Andrew Weil, Rachel Naomi Remen, Larry Dossey, Eve A. Wood, Dean Ornish, Michael Holick, David Perlmutter, and Judith Orloff, Woodson Merrell, James Gordin, Joan Borysenko and Tieraona Low Dog.

High profile Global Calgary Anchor, Gord Gillies, serves as the event moderator and facilitates the interactive Q&A period.
