Strong Process is a Boston based Wellness Conference dedicated to the evidence and science behind the three pillars of wellness - MOVE, EAT, REST.


Josh Summers


Whether you're a competitive athlete or fitness fanatic, or someone looking to perform at the next level in your profession, this is the evening for you!


We are thrilled to host Josh Summers, RYT 500, to speak about his new book "The Power of Mindfulness: Mindfulness Meditation in Sport" that he co-wrote with Boston University Clinical Associate Professor, Amy Baltzell, EdD. This book offers individuals a clear understanding of mindfulness to help athletes optimize performance. It provides a clear insight on how individuals can learn to increase their ability to concentrate, be fully present during high pressure competition and how to effectively respond to distracting thoughts and emotions (e.g. performance anxiety; dread). The strategies offered  are based on Mindfulness Meditation Training for Sport (MMTS), an empirically supported mindfulness intervention, which was created by the Josh and Amy. MMTS has been adopted internationally by practicing sport psychologists – used with collegiate, club, and Olympic teams. Through offering a clear explanation of mindfulness and self-compassion (an essential element of MMTS), brief mindfulness based practices, and consistently offering how such practices link to performance – the reader learns to implement all of MMTS or elements of MMTS to help the increase their ability to focus, cope with difficult emotions, and perform their best when it matters.



WHEN: JULY 22, 2018 6:30-8PM

WHAT: An evening of learning the strategies of MMTS from the source while you enjoy curated wines from the longevity regions of the world

Wellness Explained • A One Day Forum






Bojan Mandaric

Wellness. explained.

Have you ever played that game, “Two Truths and a Lie”? Where someone tells you three outrageous stories, two of which are true, and one is an outright lie, and you need to guess which crazy story is the whopper? That’s what the wellness world has become and the reality is, it is a world that is dominated by false information.  

We read and consume and experiment with treatments, tinctures, ointments, and supplements. We cleanse, detox, purify, and sanitize. We scour news, magazines, blogs, books, and labels in search of the answer -- the magic bullet.

Dr. Rachele Pojednic created the Strong Process Forum, a unique wellness conference, because she believes that accurate information should fuel our choices in the way we move, eat, and rest

Why was Strong Process forum created?

The Forum was designed by Rachele Pojednic to give you access to the facts about wellness. Unless you are in academia, or have a key to the ivory tower, you are left weeding through clickbait headlines and anecdotes. Our goal is to provide evidence behind the wellness claims - researched by true experts - that will guide us to make informed decisions.

Who should attend A Strong Process Forum?

Whether you feel like you're on the right track and looking to spend time with like minded people, simply attempting to navigate the wellness space, or trying to make some changes about your health based on real information, this conference is for you. Strong Process Forum is an all-day wellness  conference that includes three curated panels of scientists, farmers, journalists, athletes, clinicians and innovators, as well as breakfastyoga and lunch.

our inspiration

An effective process is strong enough to stand up in a complex world, yet flexible enough to allow different styles and personalities to succeed within it. It is said that creating strong process is probably the most difficult endeavor anyone will be involved in. It takes time, expertise and collaboration to work. The payoff is the ability to consistently and predictably perform at a high level.
