The Marston Group has always been a long-time supporter and sponsor of the Memphis Bar Association, and this year we were happy to be involved with the Annual John Dice Wellness Seminar, which took place at the Lichterman Nature Center on October 21, 2015.
The seminar is the brainchild of an organization called Lawyers Helping Lawyers, a nonprofit that was formed after local attorney John Dice committed suicide in the mid 1980’s. Lawyers Helping Lawyers was replaced by the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program (TLAP) in 1999.
This Wellness Seminar is a day of education, wellness and relaxation, with break-out sessions concerning nutrition, how to handle stress, how to unplug and more. There were Relaxation Stations set up as well as Massage On-The-Go, acupressure, coloring art, puzzles, stress balls, taste-testing by Whole Foods and The Shot Nurse on hand for blood pressure checks and to issue a variety of important annual shots. The attorneys in attendance were able to take yoga stretching breaks as well as nature walks outside, in the fabulous natural environment of the Lichterman Nature Center.
