Live CE events set to return to campus in September

By August 22, 2020 No Comments

Live continuing education events are returning to the Life Chiropractic College West campus this September! Join us for seminars featuring world-class chiropractic speakers, ones where you can earn up to 12 hours of CE credit.

“I’m so happy to be rebooting our on-campus continuing education program,” said Laurie Isenberg, Life West’s Director of Postgraduate and Continuing Education. “California docs are eager to get their live CE requirements taken care of, and the Life West campus is a safe and fabulous place to learn.”

Life West has taken many steps to ensure the health and safety of everyone who enters the campus. Masks are required, and visitors are expected to comply with social distancing regulations. Additionally, seats in classrooms and lecture labs have been spaced six feet apart.

“Our campus is working hand-in-glove with the Alameda County Department of Public Health to make sure that we’re playing it safe,” Isenberg said. “That means fewer seats in the classrooms, so sign up early!”

The September schedule features a 12-hour CE Saturday on Sept. 26, with two six-hour seminars taught by Life West faculty members. A two-day event is also scheduled for Sept. 26-27, featuring Dr. Bruce Lipton. Click individual events or visit the Life West CE website for more information.

Engaging the Science of Vitalism in Practice and Life

  • Saturday, Sept. 26 – Sunday, Sept. 27
  • Bruce Lipton, PhD, Jeff Rockwell, DC, and Omri Sitton, DC
  • 12 CE hours, including 4 Category A Technique

Frontier science is offering an integral understanding of the mechanics of life at all levels of living systems – cellular, social and ecological – which profoundly revises our perception of reality, the speakers write in a summary of the class. Scientific insights, from deep ecology, fractal geometry, quantum biophysics, epigenetics and the neurosciences offer a new emerging vision – one that sees the world as a network of interconnected and interdependent phenomena.

Through the experience of deepening one’s connection to self, community and the cosmos – the speakers say they will validate the perennial philosophy of D.D. Palmer’s vitalistic contribution to the foundation of chiropractic. Join Dr. Lipton, Dr. Rockwell and Dr. Sitton for an illustrated and animated presentation that will inspire your spirit, engage your mind, and challenge your creativity.
