"A healer is someone who facilitates another person in realizing their inherent wholeness, regardless of symptoms or states of being. Being a healer means promoting healthy feelings, actions, thoughts, and beliefs in a patient without compromising the same within themselves."
This class offers practitioner tools and vocabulary to hold space for others while remaining neutral and grounded in themselves. While this class is geared towards healing arts practitioners, it is open to all with a curiosity of the topic and those wanting to offer safer spaces.
Topics for this class will include:
Triggers vs. Neutrality
Energy Fields and Entrainment
Cost: $30 Class size is limited to 14
Floor cushions and chairs are provided. Please dress comfortably and bring anything you might need to feel comfortable during our time together.

"Part of my own process around healing and accountability is learning to name my ancestry so that I may access my own spirituality without appropriating someone else's. I am a mixed race, passing white, woman and 4th generation immigrant from Greece. I am both Ashkenazi Jew (from Poland, Russia, Hungary, and Lithuania) and Sephardic Jew (from the Middle East and Mediterranean areas ). I also carry some German, Blackfoot Indian, and Cherokee Indian heritage. "
