Queen of the Valley’s Integrative Health Services Program Hosts Internationally Known Speakers


Napa, CA — Queen of the Valley’s Wellness Center will present a free educational event that will feature a talk by two pioneers of the "attitudinal healing" movement on Friday, June 12, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Westin Verasa Hotel, 1314 McKinstry Street, in Napa. Jerry Jampolsky, M.D. and Diane Cirincione, Ph.D, of the CorStone Center (formerly known as the International Center for Attitudinal Healing) will speak on the topic of "Your Attitude Is Everything" as part of a speaker series sponsored by the Wellness Center’s new Institute for Integrative Health.

The evening will include a wine reception at 5:30 p.m, the lecture from 6 to 7 p.m, and a book signing by Dr. Cirincione and Dr. Jampolsky from 7 to 7:30 p.m. The talk will focus on "attitudinal healing principles" taught by the CorStone Center, such as how to choose love over fear, how to avoid becoming a victim of the world around you, how to let go of the past through forgiveness, and how to find inner peace in the midst of external chaos.

To reserve a seat at the event, please call 1-877-QUEEN LINE (1-877-783-3654).

Dr. Jampolsky and Dr. Cirincione are married and have lectured and consulted together for nearly 30 years in 54 countries, as well as throughout the United States, on psychology, psychiatry, mental and physical health, the power of change, interpersonal relationships, attitudinal healing, loss and grief, death, and other life transitions. The couple has also co-authored several books, including most recently, A Mini Course for Life and Finding Our Way Home.

Dr. Jampolsky, an adult and child psychiatrist and a graduate of Stanford Medical School, founded the International Center for Attitudinal Healing (now CorStone Center) in 1975. Dr. Cirincione is a therapist and former postdoctoral clinical researcher at Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute at UCSF.

"Dr. Jampolsky and Dr. Cirincione are examples of the caliber of speakers we hope to continue to attract in our quest to serve and educate the community about integrative health and wellness topics," says Richard Green, Chief Development Officer at Queen of the Valley Medical Center Foundation. "Development of the Institute for Integrative Health and its speaker series has been made possible through contributions to the Foundation via the Newell and Joanne De Puy Integrative Health Endowment Fund."

The Institute for Integrative Health is located on the second floor of Queen of the Valley’s Wellness Center (above Synergy Medical Fitness Center) that adds weight management, stress reduction, tobacco cessation, acupuncture and esthetic services to the already impressive list of services available at the Center. "The Institute for Integrative Health represents yet another way we are continuing our commitment to helping people get well and stay well," says Elizabeth Glenn-Bottari, Executive Director of Wellness and Rehabilitation Services. "At the Wellness Center, we know that each individual is unique, and there are many ways to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We are striving, with the assistance of physicians, hospital staff and generous donors, to make a variety of health-enhancing modalities, disciplines and approaches available for our community and patients."
