For those looking for new approaches to live naturally in the modern world, the Om Zone meets from 6 to 8 p.m. every Thursday at World Tree Natural Medicine, in Oakbrook Terrace. Participants may consult with one of their naturopathic doctors, share ideas about what works and get support in making healthier choices or just chill out to better manage stress.

Creating health is a not a single choice, but an everyday process that contributes to the result. To make it easier, World Tree Natural Medicine uses natural medicine, acupuncture, chair massage, hydrotherapy, meditation and reiki. Sample treatments are available at no or low cost during the workshop. The goal is to learn strategies, methods and tools to help manage stress reactions.

Admission: free. Location: 17W703-F Butterfield Rd., Oakbrook Terrace. RSVP (recommended) to 630-359-5522 or email WorldTree@comcast.net. For more information, visit TheHealingPowerOfNature.com. See ad in the Community Resource Guide.
