TEMECULA – Millions of people have learned how to harness their subconscious mind to be free from smoking, manage their weight and overcome fears and phobias.
If depression, anxiety and panic attacks are robbing you of peace of mind, attend St. John’s University’s free workshop about overcoming depression, anxiety and panic attacks offered by Dr. Pamela Winkler from 2- 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Grace Mellman Community Library in Temecula.
Winkler is an educational psychologist who has simplified the process of “mindfulness,” enabling anyone to better manage their stress, improve their health and increase their happiness.
“There is a lot we can do to improve our lives,” Winkler said. “One of the easiest ways is to learn how to manage our daily stress. It only takes a couple minutes to learn the most effective technique to manage stress and feel back in control of your life. It is a technique I have personally used for over 30 years.
“We all have to deal with daily stress, whether we like it or not. But it is really easy to learn how to harness our inner mind to do it for us,” she said.
Winkler has helped more than 5,000 private clients learn to harness the power of their subconscious mind to overcome all kinds of problems. The upcoming workshop is based on her experience as a therapist in her recent book, “Mind Medicine”
“We accept the fact that ‘we are what we eat,’ and we now also understand that ‘we are what we feel,’ Winkler said. “We can learn to harness the power of our inner mind to resolve the root cause of depression and anxiety that can erode our sense of safety and security. Panic attacks can seem to come out of nowhere, but they simply stem from a memory that is being triggered by something similar to that original experience.
“When our feelings cause us to be anxious or depressed, we often don’t know what to do about it. I am seeing more and more clients experiencing chronic depression, anxiety and panic attacks. And this directly effects how well people are sleeping, which effects everything else in their lives,” she said.
Winkler helps her patients to gently resolve what had been causing problems on a deeper level.
“We might not be able to put our finger on why we continue to have panic attacks, but our subconscious mind knows everything about it, and with proper guidance, it can resolve that problem completely and permanently,” Winkler said.
According to AARP, research revealed a clear link between depression and anxiety and chronic pain. If every day stress is getting the best of them, it may explain the increase number of people who are suffering with insomnia, depression and anxiety.
“We know the inner mind can resolve the root cause of chronic pain, just as it knows how to resolve anxiety, depression and panic attacks,” Winkler said. “The inner mind can also resolve the memory that is triggering these anxious feelings. Once we feel back in control of our lives, we can experience greater peace of mind.”
Mental health professionals with an interest in learning more about the therapeutic tool of clinical hypnotherapy and how the mind can resolve deep or prolonged personal issues are welcome to attend.
