Simply Well for Women - A 2-Day Life Changing Program, Oct. 8 & 9 at the Tucson J

Increase health, vitality, purpose and potential

August 12, 2016 – The Tucson Jewish Community Center (the Tucson J) in partnership with Doctors Gloria “Gigi” Dunn and Kathleen Mueller will present the first Simply Well for Women program on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9. This two-day educational experience for women will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Ticket price for the 2 day seminar is $500 for two individuals – Mentor & Guest. Your $500 tuition will allow you and a young woman of your choice to attend this two-day program. Please see the Hearts and Hands Movement information below for further details. For tickets visit www.tucsonjcc.org or www.simplywellproductions.com.

Simply Well for Women is designed to offer guidance about your choices and how they directly influence your physical and emotional wellness, and about how to implement an individualized approach to change. This two-day educational and interactive experience will be one in a series offered around the country that are stepping stones to create a web-based Simply Well for Women program.

There are only 24 hours in a day, and how you choose to use those hours directly influences your physical and emotional wholeness. Decades of medical practice, research, and life experience inform this innovative educational program that distills complex information into simple, sustainable approaches to achieve a healthier and more balanced and fulfilling life.   Simply Well for Women is a program about health, but it’s also a program about building vitality and resilience.  It is delivered by ONE credible source, during ONE 2-day experience, in ONE location, to impact how you live your ONE meaningful life. 

Join these two talented and passionate women on a journey through a learning experience designed to make your life and the lives of those you love better. This program is a reflection of the many steps the two female physicians walked, navigating a path toward health, vitality, purpose, and fulfilled potential.  During two decades of balancing personal and professional life with all of the competing demands for both, they searched for guidance based in science but grounded in simple wisdom about how to live each part of a 24-hour day in a healthier, more satisfying way.  The simple program, combining cutting-edge science with enduring ancient wisdom, did not exist, so they created it - Simply Well for Women.

Join us on this path to expand your awareness and learn the big impact that simple, sustainable actions can have to create the life you want.

We will explore how and why:

  • Food Matters – Discover the nutritional foundations for eating a sustainable, healthy and delicious diet and the science supporting simple choices.

  • Movement Matters – Small changes result in big differences. Develop a plan to add more enjoyable movement to your day, and reap the health benefits.

  • How To Use Your Mind Matters – Learn the evidence behind mind/body medicine, and experience simple meditative techniques for increased health, productivity, and creativity.

  • Sleep Matters – Understand how to enjoy the multitude of benefits of a wonderful night’s sleep, and experience techniques in support of that goal.

  • Environmental Health Matters – Learn the connection between individual health and environmental health, and how conscious consumption affects both.

  • Nature Matters – Develop a new perspective as we learn to follow the wisdom of nature’s guidance, and in the process develop a deeper connection with ourselves.

  • Change Matters – Explore the importance of epigenetics as it relates to lifestyle choices impacting health, and learn the science supporting the development of new habits. 

With more than 19 years in family medicine, Dr. Mueller adds, “Simply Well for Women provides the evidence based, critical information about life skills that you may not be able to find in your family doctor’s office. Small, sustainable changes are where we all need to begin for health and vitality.”

Dr. Dunn states, “Women have enormous power to change things for themselves and for those they love, when they are aware and mindfully engaged.  Simply Well for Women provides the foundation for transformational awareness and then action for women’s voices to effectively lead so many conversations locally and globally.  Women will transform health…and the world, one life at a time!“

About Simply Well for Women:
Dr. Mueller and Dr. Dunn are each board certified in their respective specialties and are two of approximately 1000 physicians in the world who have completed a two-year, post-doctoral fellowship through Dr. Andrew Weil's Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.

Every year, more than 3,000 students on campuses across the country participate in the NSAC, with each school competing first at the district level before moving on to a semi-final round.
