Dragon Dialogue Series: Understanding Winter Anxiety (15 Wellness Points)*
Start Date: 2/23/2021Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 2/23/2021End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description
Does winter get you down? Do you feel anxious, depleted, or depressed during the winter months?

This workshop will help you understand the source of wintertime dread and how you can address the anxiety inherent in winter.

We will discuss evolutionary biology, negativity bias, and we will also take a look at seasonal energetics from the perspective of Daoism and Chinese Medicine.

During this workshop, we will explore seasonal health tips, self-care practices, and meditation techniques to help you settle into the stillness and calm of winter so that you have enough energy to burst forth when springtime rolls around.

Monica Fauble, MA, M.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl. Ac., is the Wellness Coordinator for Drexel University and is also a Licensed Acupuncturist who sees patients in West Philly at Studio 34 Yoga and in Center City at the Medical Tower Building. She specializes in helping women who feel overwhelmed by ongoing health issues who want to feel good again.

This talk is part of our Dragon Dialogue Series, a new series of wellbeing workshops for Drexel employees.

2020 was an unprecedented year. We all faced many challenges, obstacles, isolation, and loss. In doing so, we also learned how essential community and social connection can be in weathering life’s storms.

In response to these tumultuous times, Drexel is offering its employees The Dragon Dialogue Series. This new series will feature curated conversations and workshops throughout 2021.

The Dragon Dialogue Series will cover a broad range of topics related to mental health and emotional wellbeing.

These events will offer Drexel employees opportunities for conversation and guided exercises to enhance their wellbeing in this brand-new year.

Together is better.
