Slow Medicine Wellness

Slow Medicine Wellness, a Katonah space shared by a network of practitioners in a variety of healing arts, now offers a full calendar of programs and presentations that are free and open to the public. They include a weekly presentation and Q&A with “the Slow Medicine doctor,” Michael Finkelstein, M.D.; guided meditations; drumming; a spiritual development series; qigong; Ayurvedic/Dosha coaching; and other holistic programming.

Finkelstein—founder and executive director of the Slow Medicine Foundation, and founder and medical director of SunRaven: The Home of Slow Medicine, a holistic wellness center in Bedford—says launching the free programming in 2018 fits the mission of Slow Medicine.

“The idea behind this development is embedded in one of the main principles of Slow Medicine, which is the vitality of community,” he says. “As such, the intention this year is to reduce the obstacles that people often find in their way to learning about and pursuing new health practices, and bringing people together to support one another. We hope many people will find their way through our doors.”

Slow Medicine Wellness in Katonah opened in September 2017 as the new community hub for the work of Finkelstein and Robin Queen Finkelstein, “the Slow Medicine Therapist,” and many of their holistically minded colleagues. The Slow Medicine Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, will support the free programming.

Among the free events are a weekly Slow Medicine Study Group, offered Wednesdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m., when Dr. Michael Finkelstein will discuss the full spectrum of health-related topics. Each session will begin with a review of an essential principle of Slow Medicine and be followed by a Q&A.

Some programs will be held monthly, such as The Soul’s Wisdom: A 12-Month Exploration, with Michael Rosenbaum (upcoming sessions February 8 and March 8), and Guided Meditation and Chakra Therapy, with Amy Kaufman (upcoming sessions February 13 and March 6).

Other free programs include Introduction to Qigong, Introduction to Alexander Technique, Drumming in Sobriety, Grow and Get More Plant Foods into Your Body, Learn and Do Bodywork on Yourself, Dosha Coaching, and True Financial Abundance: A Slow Medicine Approach.
