ACUPRESSURE FOR ANYONE WORKSHOP SERIES

 NOTE:  SEVA PARTS 1 & 2 ARE PRE-REQUISITES FOR ALL CLASSES THAT FOLLOW

 Seva Acupressure for Self-Care (Part 1)  Monday, March 16, 2020, 6:30 – 9:30 pm

This 3 hour workshop teaches how to use the Seva Stress Release program for self-care. Seva, a Sanskrit word, means selfless, compassionate service. Seva Acupressure is simple to learn, easy to perform, and profoundly supportive for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Participants will: experience the healing and transformative power of acupressure; learn to use an Awareness Journal; learn a unique method of touch through demonstration and hands-on practice; and learn Chakra Tai Chi, a movement meditation practice for self-care. No prior bodywork experience needed. Seva Part One is a pre-requisite for Seva Part Two.         Fee: $45

Seva Acupressure With Others (Part 2)  Monday, March 23, 2020, 6:30 – 9:30 pm

Seva Part 1 is a pre-requisite for this workshop. This 3 hour workshop is Part 2 of introductory training and builds upon skills learned in Seva Part 1. Using Seva Stress Release with others will be practiced seated in chairs and lying on massage tables. After taking Parts 1 and 2 participants will have information and skills to practice using the Seva Stress Release protocol on themselves and with others. Fee: $45

Great Central Channel  Monday, April 6, 2020, 6:30 – 9:30 pm

Seva Parts 1 and 2 are pre-requisites for this workshop. During this three-hour workshop participants will learn more about Chinese medicine, balancing yin and yang, two acupressure meridians (Governing and Conception Vessels) and the chakra system. Participants will learn and practice giving and receiving the Great Central Channel acupressure formula, which enhances and strengthens our grounding, stability, and whole being alignment between heaven and earth, discussed in Chinese medicine. This formula works closely with the spine and chakra system. Participants will also practice the Chakra Tai Chi movement meditation for self-care. Fee: $45

Head and Neck Formulas  Monday, April 20, 2020, 6:30 – 9:30 pm

Seva Parts 1 and 2 are pre-requisites for this workshop. Chinese medicine looks for ways to bring into balance what is out of balance in our whole being. In our culture a high priority is placed on being able to think and respond quickly and clearly, not just intellectually, but physically, emotionally and spiritually. In this workshop participants will practice locating acupressure points, reading acupressure formulas, and giving and receiving a full acupressure session. Formulas presented will help open the pathways of communication between the head, neck, and body. Fee: $45

Back and Chest  Monday, April 27, 2020, 6:30 – 9:30 pm

Seva Parts 1 and 2 are pre-requisites for this workshop. Many of the meridians and acupressure points described in Chinese medicine run through the front and back torso of the body. The majority of our physical processes are centered here. The back body carries much of our history and provides access to the nervous system through acupressure points along the spine and back body. Working with the back and chest works considers the Chinese medicine principle as above so below…as in front so behind. Formulas learned and practiced in this workshop will help bring a clearer, stronger flow of energy through the torso.  Fee: $45

Clinical Acupressure (CA) promotes wellness and rejuvenation by accessing and addressing the vital energies of the body. CA is derived from traditional acupressure, which uses touch on specific points to release and rebalance energy flows through the body. Specific point combinations are held with firm, gentle finger pressure as the body, mind and spirit return to balance. CA is not intended to replace medical care for serious conditions. However, those who receive this method report that it addresses common symptoms easily and effectively, with no harsh side effects. CA is can complement physical therapy, massage, or nursing. It also stands very well on its own. A full CA session takes about an hour, with the client fully dressed during the session. NOTE: Clinical Acupressure 1 and Process Acupressure 1A are course requirements for SLI Foundation Certification.

Acupressure Workshops 2019

website image and butterfly

 

Summer has arrived and here on the east coast we are experiencing welcome sun and expanded daylight as our gardens bloom and bring sights and scents that delight our whole being. Spring brought excitement for me as Acupressure for Anyone workshops continued to bring acupressure for self-care and with others to the Ocean County, NJ community. The Seva Acupressure for Self-care (Part 1) and Using Seva With Others (Part 2)  provided opportunities for participants to practice giving and receiving this simple program for promoting relaxation and balance and reducing stress and anxiety, and a solid foundation for learning and experiencing four additional workshops offered in the Acupressure for Anyone series.

Spring also brought forth an amazing article, “Beyond Pills: Acupressure Impact on Self-Rated Pain and Anxiety Scores,” Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Volume 25, Number 5, 2019, May 9, 2019, p. 1-5, Elizabeth Monson, MA, M, CRNP et al. This research revealed  ”Acupressure is an effective tool to address escalating health care demands. This retrospective analysis has provided evidence that the Seva acupressure program is a nonpharmacologic tool that can effectively reduce pain and anxiety without adverse events…..and resulted in a high degree of participant satisfaction.” (http:do.org/10.1089/acm.2018.0422)

I look forward to meeting you at one of the upcoming workshops below.

You will practice locating acupressure points and reading formulas and give and receive a full acupressure session. Fee: $45

Head and Neck Formulas — Monday, May 13, 2019

Seva Parts 1 and 2 are pre-requisites for this workshop. In our culture a high priority is placed on being able to think and respond quickly and clearly — not just intellectually, but physically, emotionally and spiritually as well. The free flow of energy in the head and neck is crucial for obtaining and maintaining clarity. In this workshop three acupressure formulas are introduced that will help open the pathways of communication between the head and the rest of the body. Participants will learn the Basic Neck Release, the Head Formula, and the Special Headache Release. Participants will give and receive a full acupressure session.  Fee: $45

Holiday Greetings for New Beginnings in 2019

website image and butterfly

            One of the prose poems that continues to bring significant insights and wisdom to me is Desiderata, which in Latin means desired things. Published in 1927 by American writer Max Ehrmann, the poem was largely unknown in his lifetime. Ehrmann was an attorney turned philosopher and poet who wrestled with making a living and following what he considered his calling — poetry, literature, and thought. Since his passing in 1945, Desiderata has been mentioned and quoted by many individuals including Adlai Stevenson, Leonard Nimoy, Joan Crawford, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, and Morgan Freeman to mention a few. I bring it to you at this time with much gratitude for its continued teachings for me and understanding that as of a 1976 court decision it is now in the public domain. May it bring you new awareness and insights as we approach the beginning of 2019.

Desiderata”

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Acupressure for Anyone Fall 2018 workshops

0613001216a

Looking forward to bringing Acupressure for Anyone workshops to Ocean County, New Jersey this fall! Come learn simple self-care practices that will support your health and sense of well-being as you move through seasonal and life changes, and learn acupressure principles and programs you can use with friends, family, and clients. These programs have been developed to reduce stress, strengthen resilience, and enhance your ability to bounce back. The Seva Acupressure for Self-Care and the Seva Acupressure With Others programs have been successfully used at Towson State University with college students, Walter Reed Medical Center with military personnel, and for pain management with the first full facial transplant at the University of Maryland Medical Center (see www.soullightening.com Outreach & Research). I love the work of Soul Lightening Acupressure and the four basic principles of this work:

1. Energy flow in the body promotes wellness and opens new awareness.

2. Touch and the flow of love from the heart are healing and strengthening.

3. Every person carries their own healing and wisdom within.

4. The purpose of Soul Lightening Acupressure is to empower that inherent wisdom.

2018 Spring Workshops and Events

IMG_2420

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.

[Albert Camus]

As we experience the blizzard of 2018 in New Jersey I find myself feeling blessed that I can remain safe, warm, and dry indoors. I love the stillness after a snow storm, how the world becomes quiet and I can appreciate the beauty of the natural world. The birds are scampering around the bird feeder looking for food and pecking for seeds thrown onto the snow when the bird feeder was unreachable amidst snow drifts in our back yard. I’ve also had precious down time to meditate, practice yoga and Qigong, journal, and make a pot of warming, hearty chicken vegetable soup. All these self-care practices bring gifts that boost my resilience and sense of wellbeing.

I’ve often said that I teach what I need to learn. I will again teach acupressure workshops this spring and fall, a reminder to me of the importance of self-care, renewal, and the transformative benefits of acupressure as a healing modality.

“What’s in Your Toolkit” will be presented monthly for the Cancer Support Community at Monmouth Medical Southern Campus in Lakewood, NJ. Check out their monthly classes for a host of FREE support groups and programs in Lakewood and Long Branch, NJ, 732-923-6090.

Seva Acupressure for Self-Care at Abilities Expos San Mateo, California and DC Metro Area

IMG_1868

If you live near San Francisco or the DC metro area you won’t want to miss the upcoming FREE Abilities Expos in San Mateo, California (October 27-29, 2017) and the DC Metro area (December 1-3, 2017). Expo attendees will have the opportunity to meet courageous, inspiring individuals who have transformed their lives and the word disabilities.

Come by the Soul Lightening International booth and experience a free 15-minute Seva Acupressure for Stress Release session. This protocol was initially used at Ground Zero after the events of 9/11, and then used with students at Towson State University and with veterans at Walter Reed Medical Center. In 2012, the University of Maryland Medical Center, in conjunction with the Center for Integrative Care, used Seva acupressure with Richard Norris, the recipient of the first full facial transplant performed there. Using Seva acupressure before, during, and after surgery promoted enhanced relaxation and pain relief for Richard.

I’m also looking forward to teaching the Seva for Self-Care program from 11:45 am – 12:45 pm, at Caregivers Day at the Expos on Sunday, sponsored by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. Take this program home with you to promote enhanced body-mind balance and harmony through self-care.

Fall is a great time to release old patterns and ways of being that no longer serve. Seva Acupressure for Self-Care is a simple, efficient way to bring body-mind self-awareness to this process to support letting go. I look forward to sharing this program on the west and east coasts, especially before the hectic holiday season when self-care helps to reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, and boost resilience.

Stop by and say hello if you or friends and family are near the upcoming Expos!

Namaste……..

0613001216a

My family has been blessed with two long-term breast cancer survivors, my mother and my older sister. Walking this journey with them taught me a great deal about courage, patience, faith, trust, and healing. My sister and I were pleased to meet Dr. Bernie Siegel, surgeon oncologist from New Haven, Connecticut, at a workshop. His insightful words remain with me to this day: “Cancer is a word not a sentence…..People are like tea bags. We don’t know how strong we are until we are in hot water.”

As part of my decision to pay it forward, I am grateful to be co-leading the FREE 6-week CANCER: THRIVING AND SURVIVING WORKSHOP, presented through the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program developed and researched at Stanford University.  It is sponsored by the Ocean Monmouth Health Alliance and is being held at the Cancer Support Community, 199 Prospect Street, Lakewood, NJ, on Mondays, September 18 through October 23, 2017, from 9:30 am – 12 noon. Registration is required (see below). This center is located at Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus.

During this workshop you will learn how you can take a step forward to becoming a positive self-manager of your health. Topics will include:

  • developing techniques for dealing with frustration, fatigue, pain, isolation, sleep, and living with uncertainty
  • learning appropriate exercise, regaining and maintaining flexibility and endurance
  • making decisions about treatment and complementary therapies
  • communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals
  • nutrition, setting priorities, and relationships

Participants will receive a FREE companion 225 page workbook, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, and a FREE CD, Mind-Body Meditations
