Please join Queen Village resident George Hofman and Head House Books, on Martch 1st, at 6:30pm, as we launch his new book, Practicing Mental Illness: Meditation, Movement and Meaningful Work to Manage Challenging Moods.
After a series of hospitalizations and a lot of bad behavior, George Hofmann managed to overcome the worst of bipolar disorder by adding practices in focused attention to the usual therapies of medicine and talk. He works to show others with anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder how to do the same.
George has conducted workshops on meditation, movement and meaningful work for individuals, families, support groups, churches, healthcare professionals and corporations. He is also the author of Resilience: Handling Anxiety in a Time of Crisis.
George lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his wife, their daughter and two poorly behaved dogs. He often shops for his reading material at Head House Books
