Workshops & Presentations
Love Your Breasts Up!
This workshop is offered to present women a time to connect deeply with the energy of their breasts, which epitomizes the Sacred Feminine attributes of love, compassion, beauty and nurturance. We'll discuss the physical, emotional and energetic attributes of our breasts. We'll discuss how the breasts grow and change with us through our life transitions from maiden to mother to crone. We'll discuss causes of breast dis-ease and ways to naturally prevent and treat them. We’ll draw fascinating comparisons between Earth’s lands and the breasts, as well as discuss energetic lines that flow through the chest, including the heart chakra. Participants will receive guidance on doing a loving and healing self-breast massage with herbal oil for increasing tone and circulation. This unique class is one of empowerment, connection and love.
Your Amazing Brain
The brain and nervous system is what allows us to experience our internal and external worlds. It is this experience that creates our reality. We will discuss the astonishing anatomy and physiology of the brain and nervous system and how it mimics the universe itself. We will discuss the brain’s role in pain, pleasure, conditioning, habits and addictions and ways that we can rewire these connections to create positive changes in our lives. We’ll also learn practical applications for connecting to collective consciousness and accessing our limitless potential.
