Community Approach to Medicine with Group Healings
Mar 03, 2018 03:14AM
Dr. Tanvi Gandhi, a naturopath and acupuncturist, has joined Fairfield’s Barefoot Living Arts center with a focus on group healing. Such group healing has been practiced through ancient and tribal traditions, including storytelling, drum circles, shamanic ritual and ceremonies. These types of narrative-based medicine are an emerging field of mainstream integrative medical and counseling practices.
Gandhi is currently offering group healing sessions during midweek and weekend retreats. These include a tea ceremony with intentions, guided meditation and body scan, acupuncture, and pranayama. There will also be weekly group meditations and qigong classes.
Gandhi is a Connecticut-licensed acupuncturist, naturopathic doctor and a practitioner of Arvigo Techniques Mayan Abdominal Therapy.
