*VIRTUAL* Conversation with Wendy Figone: Extreme Self-Care

February 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Wendy in this conversation about extreme self-care through the lens of self-compassion and embodiment work (self myofascial release). Wendy will offer tools and ideas that people can use immediately.

Wendy has traveled around the country gaining expert level certification from John Barnes, the leading authority in myofascial release. The healing effects of myofascial release are amplified by the instruction in the practice of self myofascial release. Wendy is also a Yoga Therapist, Certified Forest Therapy Guide and Compassion Ambassador (ACT) through Stanford University. For the past eleven years, Wendy has been volunteering for Wisdom 2.0, studying the effects of technology on the mind and body. She has also been volunteering and practicing meditation at Spirit Rock Meditation Center for the past 20 years. Her experience also includes acting as a consultant to The Veterans Administration, Stanford Research, and Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and various schools throughout the Bay Area.

This unique combination of skills and techniques were learned and practiced along a very personal journey through chronic pain, which led her into the field of myofascial release. Wendy was put on a lifetime path to help others learn skills to decrease and manage chronic pain. Wendy believes how we manage and view stress in our lives strongly impacts how we feel in our body.
