A Chance to Recharge for Women
Brattleboro, VT — August 3-4, 2019
13 NCCAOM-approved CEUs
From Neediness to Ecology
Late summer is the time of harvest; it is a time of bounty, and a time of hard work finally paying off. It is also a time when there is frequently too much on our minds, as there is so much to attend to. Days are long and humid, and we feel the heaviness of abundance threaten to become lassitude and stagnation.
The work of the harvest seems endless, and we may face personal exhaustion in the midst of plenty. Abundance begins to feel more like a burden than a blessing when we are over-involved in tending more than we can manage. This workshop explores issues of generosity and over-commitment, nurturance and self-sacrifice, and how we can remain sincere and dedicated to our families and communities within an ecological balance for our own lives.
Topics in Earth
• Nurturance, generosity, kindness, and guilt trips
• The positive uses of circular thinking
• Experiencing sweetness and pleasure without feeling selfish
• How the effectiveness of our “intention” is created by our personal integrity

In beautiful rural Vermont, we will explore acupuncture, herbs and energetic exercises designed to support our Earth Element and the Earth Elements of our clients and families—on a Me First basis!
