Many cultures have traditions of clearing. Energy clearing, based in the Five Elements principles of Chinese medicine, is the practice of letting go and allowing your energetic system to regain balance. You can utilize clearing to improve all aspects of your daily life. Every relationship functions best when each person is in balance, whether at home or in the work place. We all know how easy it is for our energetic systems to get out of balance. The wisdom of the Five Elements system of Chinese Medicine is that it is based in the understanding and observation of the cycles of nature: all systems have a natural flow, including our own, and want to be in balance.

Addiction exploits a basic vulnerability of the brain. It moves us towards things that feel good and away from things that generate pain or disgust. Addiction, no matter what the substance or activity, begins as the former and ends up drowning us in the latter. Recent research findings from social policy research and contemplative and cognitive neuroscience are providing us with some exciting and unlikely possibilities for creatively and comprehensively addressing this increasing human challenge.

Most of the restrictions in the body develop as a response to some form of trauma in the life of the client (including prenatal experiences). In CranioSacral Levels 1 and 2, the focus is on a biomechanical/structural approach to releasing restrictions found in the body, the cranium and the face. In Level 3, the focus shifts to another aspect of “restriction” in the body - the emotional response, which can also develop as a response to some form of trauma. Fri, June 2, 1:00pm-8:30pm, Sat & Sun, June 2 & 3, 8:00am-5:00pm (21 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs). Instructors: Einat Arian (21 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs)
