-Wellness Wednesday, Relax the Brain: A Holistic Approach to your Health
Presented by Preya Shah
Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. These distortions
can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every
other system it interacts with.
Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of touch. Watch this webinar to learn techniques, such as CranioSacral Therapy, for normalizing the environment around
the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct.

-The Power of Social Intelligence. SI+IQ=
Presented by, Yamila Harris
Service Delivery, Atos
Studies have actually proven that up to 90%

90%! Logic (our IQ) then factors in as
a mechanism to support our actions and
justify our decisions to ourselves and
others. Yet, even knowing this, as professionals,
we tend to place more emphasis on IQ. As
important as IQ is, the fact is that you
can be the most intelligent person in the
room, but if you lack social intelligence
you are not likely to establish a lasting
connection. So, what are some key aspects
of social intelligence that we can develop
in order to complement our IQ?
