Mind-Body Health Writing Workshop Mind-Body Health Writing Workshop
with Dr. Abby Caplin
Begins Sunday, June 7th at 7 PM

Discover how to use writing as a therapeutic tool if you live with illness or health challenges. Dr. Abby Caplin will guide you through a process of reflection, writing and optional sharing. Absolutely no writing experience is necessary! Just come with an open mind and notebook.

Abby Caplin, MD, MA practices mind-body medicine and counseling in San Francisco. She helps people living with chronic illness or medical conditions lead empowered and vibrant lives, finding wholeness despite illness.

"While there are many studies indicating a strong link between stress and physical illness, there is a remarkable lack of therapeutic intervention in this area. Dr. Caplin is a true pioneer in this emerging field."
– S.H., Physician, Petaluma

"Dr. Caplin is an amazing resource for anyone with a medical condition or illness. Her expertise in mind-body medicine, combining degrees in both medicine and counseling psychology, is rare and valuable. She helps patients harness their own healing capacities. I feel very good about referring to Abby and would send my own family members to her."
– J.P., Psychotherapist, San Francisco

The Orange wire Problem DAVID WATTS will read and discuss
The Orange Wire Problem and Other Tales from the Doctor's Office
Tuesday, June 9 at 7 PM

In these stories, Watts shows the nobility and weakness, generosity and surliness of human nature. Here are the moral dilemmas and personal rewards of ministering to the sick. Watts writes with disarming candor, admitting that practicing medicine can be a crazy thing. Whether the subject is the potential benefits of therapeutic deception or telling a child about death, Watts' ear for the right word, the right tone, and the right detail never fails him.

David Watts, M.D., is a poet and regular commentator on NPR's All Things Considered.

"Lyrical riffs on illness, frailty and the meaning of life, as seen through a physician's eyes." – Kirkus Review
