Do you feel you easily lose yourself in the midst of the stressors of our current world situation? Do you sometimes (or often) feel hopeless and helpless about managing and that your only recourse for self-care is to shut down?
Energy Psychology (EP) and Energy Medicine (EM) provide simple to learn and easy to use techniques to help you find balance, experience more joy and well-being and participate more fully in your own life.
EP and EM are energetic healing methods that combine ancient healing tools, such as acupressure and chakra balancing, with modern day approaches, such as affirmations.
In this class you will learn and practice several EP/EM techniques for helping reduce stress and anxiety, regain calm, lift your mood, enhance your ability to focus and concentrate (even if you experience ADD), clear negative beliefs about yourself and life and replace them with ones you choose, resolve trauma… even reduce allergic responses and help you sleep through the night.
These techniques can be incorporated into your daily self-care routine. They are easy to learn and easy to teach others.
In this lively, experiential class, we will also have a discussion of the role of balance and the themes and situations that commonly knock us out of balance.
You will learn a brief history of EP/EM.
Participants will receive handouts for each exercise and a bibliography of reference materials.
Facilitator: Paula McGuire has been a Practitioner of the Healing Arts for over 25 years. Paula’s desire to teach Energy Psychology and Energy Medicine awoke on a beautiful summer evening when her car lost power as she was on her way home from the airport and she spent the next hour and a half standing on the side of the freeway and practicing Energy Psychology/Energy Medicine on the situation. At some point she realized that her worries about getting home had evaporated and she noticed how beautiful the evening was as the world whizzed by. She marveled at how easy it had been to change her mindset and realized it would be enlivening to help others experience that same ease and ability to move to the positive side of a situation. Right there, standing on the side of the freeway, she designed her first Energy Psychology/Energy Medicine class.
Paula’s original education and training was in structural engineering. She had a desire to build bridges.
After 15 years of technical work, she took a nine-month sabbatical and gained a master’s degree in Culture and Creation Spirituality with an emphasis on Spiritual Psychology. During that time, she experienced Rosen Method Bodywork and, began to study it. It called to her as nothing else ever had. She had to do it. Upon completing that training, she became a psychotherapist so that she could hold more for her clients.
Then, as each step lead to the next, she was introduced to Energy Psychology and Energy Medicine. She learned numerous energy healing modalities and became certified to teach several of them. She added some other offerings to her bag of tools, including becoming a BioMagnetic Therapy practitioner, a yoga instructor and minister.
Paula has been a Practitioner of the Healing Arts in California for over 25 years. Now, she is returning to her birthplace in the LowCountry to bring her work here. In addition to working with individuals, she offers classes in Energy Psychology/Energy Medicine for anyone who would like to feel better and also offers professional certification, mentoring, consultation and support in ThetaHealing®, Birth Your Life®, and classes towards certification and mentoring in TAT® (Tapas Acupressure Technique®).
Eventually, it has all come full circle, as Paula finds her dream to build bridges is being actualized in her work as she helps individuals, families and communities find ways to connect through service and healing.
