Mind Your Body

The Vital Role of the Mind and Spirit in Recovery and Wellbeing with Wendi Saggese, Gaby Burt and Liz Butler. With the arrival of Spring comes the symbolism of starting afresh, having a ‘spring-clean’ and awakening a new better version of yourself. With this theme in mind, our spring conference encapsulated this, emphasising the vital role of the mind and spirit in recovery and wellbeing. with a focus on those with cancer.

Our emotions are so strongly associated with our physical wellness that even the word “dis-ease” explains the tie between our mind and body. With more and more growing evidence backing the connection between the mind and the body, we need to think about how we can heal ourselves. This conference was designed to equip attendees with knowledge and practical skills through specially crafted talks and workshops to help them along on their emotional healing journey.

Wendi Saggese: Wendi Saggese is living with Stage Four Terminal Cancer, yet at 57 years old she is happier than she has ever been. It’s hard to believe that she was once depressed and had very low self-esteem. Prior to teaching the Principles, Wendi spent 40 years looking for ways to change herself. She obtained a Master Certification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming from co-founder John Grinder, worked for Anthony Robbins, and lived at Byron Katie’s Center for the Work, helping to co-write the first ‘Work’ Certification Manual.

In 2010, Wendi found herself lost in the chokehold of a depression that followed her initial Breast Cancer diagnosis. Nothing helped her until she stumbled upon the Three Principles in 2011. The Understanding completely changed her life, her relationships and, most importantly, her ability to live happily with a terminal diagnosis. She has amassed over six years of professional experience with 3P teachers, including George and Linda Pransky, from whom she received a six-month, in-depth mentor training. Wendi built her own practice, Wake Up Your Wisdom, and works with every kind of person, especially those with tough and life-threatening situations like illness, the death of a loved one, and cancer. It has become her life’s work helping people wake up to their inner intelligence by sharing the simple understanding of how the human mind works.

Wendi’s Workshops
Some people seem to possess an incredible strength, confidence, and even positivity in the face of cancer or hardship . Others are overcome by anxiety and depression . There is a key to living a life filled with hope and healing. It is not a technique, or a method, or set of values.
It is a simple understanding of the human mind and it can help ease the stress of troubling circumstances – no matter how dire the prognosis.

This workshop was a must-attend for all people looking to support themselves and others to heal and live a happy life. Attendees joined Wendi in a wonderful conversation and explored the way our minds work to enable them to:

– See setbacks through a freer and more resilient mind
– Spend less time worrying and more time living and loving
– Stress less about scan results, and crucial treatment decisions
– Remain calmer and bully-proof around confrontational doctors or family members
