October, 2011 (Tucson, AZ)—Straight from the press and now at Miraval, Dr. Andrew Weil’s new book Spontaneous Happiness comes to life in the resort’s new lecture series Spontaneous Happiness: A Talk with Dr. Andrew Weil. In the lectures, guests are granted exclusive access to the renowned integrative medicine specialist as he delves into the research behind his new book. A longtime leader in the wellness industry, Miraval is the first of its kind to offer an integrative wellness program in a resort setting. In addition to Dr. Weil’s new lecture series, Miraval offers a myriad of unique experiences for personal growth and is a go-to destination for those looking to open their mind, body and soul, find balance, and change their lives for the better.

Throughout the talk, Dr. Weil will present a comprehensive overview of evidence-based integrative strategies to address low mood and depression, drawing on techniques including Ayurveda, Buddhism, acupuncture, psychotherapy, and mindfulness training. Dr. Weil will offer participants practical advice on lifestyle, behavior, and dietary changes to help assess emotional wellness and manage moods. The Q & A portion of each lecture will provide guests with the unique opportunity to address their personal health and wellness questions directly to Dr. Weil himself.
“Dr. Weil has played an integral role in developing the integrative wellness programming at Miraval, and I look forward to giving our guests an opportunity to interact with him firsthand,” said Michael Tompkins, President & General Manager of Miraval Resort & Spa. “The insight and lifestyle management strategies he will provide to improve mood and overall wellbeing are invaluable.”
