Chronic Wellness Weekend with Donn Rochlin

July 20 - 22, 2018


“ There is no source of illness, only the disallowing of wellness” –Abraham Hicks

Donn Rochlin will use his inspiring and uplifting piano music to set the stage for a weekend of insight into the cause and cure for chronic back, neck, shoulder, and other related chronic pain.

Donn will share his fifteen year journey with chronic pain, and how through his study and research of Body Mind pioneer Dr. John Sarno, eventually found recovery.

Participants will have an opportunity through music, meditation, journaling and creative group play, to journey into a new realm of emotional understanding. The focus is on how our emotions interact with our bodies and minds, and how through understanding and implementing this knowledge, it can eventually lead us to chronic wellness.


Registration closed. Thank you for your interest! More retreat offerings can be found here:

  • How faulty medical advice prolongs and increases pain

Testimonials about Donn

Donn spoke at my group and did a fantastic job sharing information about the mind/body/spirit connection and health. His unique presentation was one of the greatest I’ve had at the group! He magically blended his love for music with the ideas around law of attraction and chronic pain.        Michele Joy, speaker, coach, author

Donn’s presentation opened my mind to what had previously seemed impossible, the idea of living without chronic pain. By sharing his own story of healing and the resources that helped him, he made accessible a path to healing. By combining his beautiful piano music with these concepts of healing I felt as if I was listening not only with my mind but also with my spirit. I am so grateful to have listened to his words and music.     Alexandra Spellman, R.N., Portland OR
