Mind Over Matter


Sleep expert Carol Ash, M.D., addresses the audience at a March 1 fundraiser for Elijah’s Promise Soup Kitchen in New Brunswick that was sponsored by Saint Peter’s University Hospital and The Wellness Project, a collection of physicians and healthcare experts who have banded together to promote holistic healing and its benefits as an approach to well-being. More than 200 people attended the three-hour event held in the Sister Marie de Pazzi Conference Center at Saint Peter’s University Hospital. Speakers covered topics including the use of “flow” (a new way of meditation), how certain cutting-edge technologies can enable health and wellness, holistic approaches to strengthening the body, and the significance of dreams for overall mental and physical health.
