Adventure 1:  The Natural world:  A Walk on the Wild Side. Let’s move our bodies, stretch our legs and maybe even add some new tools to our toolbox on this nature walk-about with The Tapping Herbalist, Alicia North. We’ll be introduced to some common wild, spring herbs which can be easily added to the diet to gently support our transition from winter into spring & summer. During our time together we’ll experience nature’s ability to clear stuck, stagnant energy and rejuvenate our bodies, minds and spirits during our plant encounters and exercises. You’ll never look at weeds the same way! Bring a pen and small notebook or sketchpad to record your experience.

Adventure 2: The Angelic world.  Lisa Porter smiles quietly when asked about her angel readings.  She says, ‘I just talk to them, and sometimes they talk back.’  She is happy to contact them on any number of things for you, in small, short one-to-one sessions on Friday afternoon.  First come, first served.  Lisa is a practitioner of several modalities and a longtime user of essential oils expertise.

Adventure 3: The Inner world.  Join Terry Lynch, author, teacher, trainer, practitioner and professor, as she brings her newest tools, The Inner Awareness Method (IAM) is a technique that draws on the consciousness of the body to guide and receive the messages hidden in their pain or disease;  fully acknowledged and embraced, the pain is released and transforms into healing.

A physical therapist, Terry is dedicated to the exploration of mind, body, and spirit healing techniques.  Author of the Stressfish Guide to EmoTrance, and creator of Inner Awareness Method, she applies the body’s messages to self-healing consciousness for her clients.

Adventure 4: The Etheric world.  Etheric cords are energetic bonds that stretch between two people for the purpose of transferring emotional energy. EFT Master Nancy Gnecco says they are present in all relationships, and allow us to feel connection with others.  However, not all cords are positive; when a relationship is out of harmony, it serves both people to cut the cords, releasing any unhealthy parts of the relationship. Utilizing EFT with powerful, guided visualization you can become free of negativity between yourself and another, reclaiming energy that has been draining you or straining a relationship. You can also meet her and arrange for a private session.

5:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.

Grab a friend…get a beverage and a comfy seat…Relax…in the company of your friends and the like-minded, begin to open and  EXPAND as we ease into our 5th year together.

Rick Wilkes, live by SKYPE
EXPAND — When we’re wanting to expand, we’re wanting to GROW the sweet, nourishing aspects of the relationship.
1) Explore what you want to expand in your EMOTIONAL world. We tend to think of actions when in relationships:  Intimacy, Connection, Co-Creation, Tenderness, Safety, Ease… and a million actions can flow from that.  We’ll Tap with that!
2) Where do you find it difficult to stay in your YES? When we are expanding, doing things that are a NO for us is like expanding towards a sharp rock! Ouch! Tapping on specific times when we do things that are not a YES for us helps us tremendously to feel safe, non-resentful, and excited for MORE!

3) EXPAND isn’t linear, there are inhales and exhales, closer and further. For many feelings trigger when someone moves away, even if it is for their own balancing and self-care. An EXPANDING Universe means larger gravitational pulls. Finding the sweet orbits amongst those in your circle means less collapse and more Swing Dancing!

Clairvoyant and intuitive since a young age, Emily is an ‘ancient of days’ healer and seer whose own journey is a conscious path to ONENESS.  She works as a channel, and is  pioneering the combination of this with energy psychology skills and techniques, in order to shift our energies into alignment for the next wave of consciousness.

She believes energy psychology practitioners are front-runners for this new way of living and being. She’ll be presenting you a portion of her signature Heart & Soul Lab, focused upon dropping the fear around our story.

International Energy Coach Kristen Ferraro developed her Spiritual Freedom Practices to bring practical empowerment with balanced energy to her clients and groups.  Today Kris brings her signature, dynamic style to present day concerns: Finding Certainty During Times of Great Change.  It’s no secret the world as we know it is going through upheaval. From advancements in technology to political strife, we are experiencing radical change in ways that could not have been predicted even a few years ago. The old ways of “managing” stress, with avoidance, addiction, and implosion, are no longer providing outlets. This is where we come in:  EFT practitioners are poised to provide what is most needed now:  practical balance in a topsy turvy world.

Together, she’ll help us find our inner certainty, get grounded and then take this to our clients, students, and groups. Get out your super hero capes – serving more powerfully is coming up! Contact Kris here:
