Understanding Belief Systems

Teacher: Sheena Mason
Date: POSTPONED
Time: 11am-2pm
Investment: $65

Step out of the familiar to get a birds eye view of how the psyche works to assimilation information. In the same way that we all have sensory eyes to perceive light, the way we perceive it will drastically vary from person to person.

Belief systems are not necessarily what we see or think in daily life but are the filters we use to associate the things we see, feel, think ect. The psyche acts as an associative organ to sort sensory information. Therefore, two people could visually witness the same event, yet perceive it totally differently. They could have totally different experiences based on what they've learned in the past. This is how we unconsciously live in the past without even knowing it!

As we mature as human beings, many of the beliefs we adopted as children to keep us safe are simply no longer helpful and can be actually detrimental to a happy, healthy life.  It often takes a serious, even painful life event to shake us free of old beliefs!

In this workshop, you will learn about how belief structures are created and strengthened. You will learn simple and practical techniques to shift beliefs systems and construct systems of your own choosing. You learn to shift out of the circumstance of your environment and into the world of your choosing.

This workshop is designed for teachers, healers, therapists and students with a sincere interest.

Please come with and open mind and heart. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a journal.

Hyakuten Inamoto of Japan. She has experienced the many benefits of Reiki healing in her life and can see the potential for transformation that this sacred practice can offer others. 

Karla’s approach to Reiki in practice, is to act as the witness to this beautiful energy as it responds to the body’s needs to offer relaxation, balance and healing.
Because of the massive transformation Reiki initiated in Karla’s life, she wishes to spread the gift of this healing art with as many people as she can.

Karla has gathered many other tools for healing throughout her journey. A few of which are crystal and sound healing, meditation, Theta healing, Akashic Record Reading, Hatha Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

Therapeutic Yoga with Kat

Sundays

What makes Therapeutic Movement unique is the adaptation of yoga postures, which are practiced in a way to enhance the rejuvenation process while deeply connecting with the self and the body as it heals. This Therapeutic Yoga class is designed to give bodies the opportunity to restore, repair, and recover in an intimate and fully supported environment, receiving personal modifications and adjustments by one of our specially trained therapeutic yoga teachers.

These exercises assist in not only rehabilitating the body, but also in nourishing and connecting the heart and the mind, which allows us to settle into a state of acceptance and allowance, adjusting our attitude towards our present condition and becoming self-invested in our own healing.
