As I take over as the organizer of this group, I would like to introduce multiple modalities for healing, some of which I have experience with and some of which we will learn together. I am also the organizer for another meetup group called the Jersey Shore Oilers, so some of you may want to join that group as well as that will be more essential oil specific. In this group going forward we may dabble in some emotional freedom technique, meditation, reiki, yoga and chakra clearing. We will integrate essential oils into many of these modalities.
Stay tuned as I update the schedule. My space is in Manasquan and I hope that those of you in Toms River will be open to popping in over here. I am open to organizing a monthly meeting in Toms River or along the peninsula if we can get a space. Please feel free to give me feedback.
Let's all send our light and love to Debi who started this meet-up. We wish her continued success in her endeavors and I have left her most recent post and contact information under the May 26th, 2015 event date should you wish to reach out to her and support her on her path.
I look forward to meeting all of you. I am enjoying my own journey transitioning from a CPA to a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist, Registered Yoga Teacher and Reiki Pracitioner. The joy is in the journey...
Debi's original vision for the group is listed below
This group was started to share our knowledge of the therapeutic use of aromatic plants & essential oils, restoring the science of aromatherapy to a truly holistic & professional art. Essential oils are very powerful & would most likely put some drug companies out of business if fully utilized by everyone. The inherent difficulty is that oils vary in quality and reliability, so people have varied results. Quality essential oils, both organic & therapeutic, are available from a host of suppliers. Our senses connect us to the world and allow us to respond to our environment. Essential oils fill our senses & trigger physiological & psychological responses in our bodies. From birth to old age our eyesight & other senses wane, however, our sense of smell never weakens because the cells regenerate every 24 days. The nose is capable of recognizing some 500,000 different odors. Smell transports as well as heals. Advanced practitioners of Aromatherapy as well as beginners & those who are just starting out are all welcome. The monthly meetings are great introductions to classes we offer at our healing center. Each month, I will host an in-person gathering at The Center For Health & Healing in Toms River. Each month will cover a specific topic related to essential oil practice and safe uses. Members of the group can also share their experiences. This is an informal group so people may ask questions throughout. Our focus is education and the safe practice of using essential oils. And lastly, this group does not promote any particular oil, supplier or distiller. Aromatic First Aid Kit "2000 B.C. -- Here, eat this root. 1000 A.D. -- That root is heathen.
