Speaker 01 - Suzanne Connolly - Wiping the Mud Off the Headlights: Practical Potent Ways to Clear Energy Blocks

Speaker 02 - Dan Cohen - Creating Peace and Joy in Stressful Times

Speaker 03 -Joel Elfman - Mindful Eating - Changing Eating Habits and Losing Weight with the Power of Your Mind

Speaker 01 - Suzanne Connolly - 'Wiping the Mud Off the Headlights: Practical Potent Ways to Clear Energy Blocks - how to clear them fast and painlessly, and what happens when we do’

Emotional problems cause energy blocks and patterns in our energy system that cause limited energy, emotional blind-spots, repetitive wounds, inability to move past wounds and ongoing pain. They give us low self-esteem, low energy and low productivity as we fight to get through our day. If we heal these wounds unconsciously, it can take a lifetime to clear emotional problems from childhood. If we clear them consciously, we get to live a happier life, now.

The 'psychotherapy model' for clearing our own emotional energy wounds is slow because the client speaks from the wounded part of themselves, releasing wound energy through talking and emotion. The 'energy model' is fast because it opens up a dialogue between the wound itself and your 'adult, loving self' - the adult self nurtures and heals the wound with love. The client is not re-traumatized, healing happens at the point of the wound and the healed wound energy is re-assimilated into the energy system and the wound is gone.

This technique was channeled by Archangel Michael. When all the energy blocks are removed, it's like wiping mud off car headlights; your true self shines out and you finally see who you REALLY are and you find you have the power within you to create that true you in all aspects of your life.

Speaker 02 - Dan Cohen - Creating Peace and Joy in Stressful Times

More than anything, we all want to love ourselves and others. It’s what makes the ride of life worthwhile. And we all want peace of mind. But time and again, life’s daily stresses throw us off course, leaving us feeling resentful and scared rather than loving and calm. This talk is about practical ways to get back on our emotional course and realize that our lives are fundamentally ok.

Dan Cohen is a licensed psychologist, high-altitude mountaineer, and a seasoned presenter on positive psychology and stress-management. He blends humor, scientific knowledge, and practical wisdom in presentations that always leave his audience wanting for more.

In his words:
As a mountaineer, I’ve learned we are capable of achieving and being far more than we ever thought possible. I help people achieve this by expanding their vision and teaching them to take intelligent, calculated risks. As a formerly harsh self-critic, I know how to help people become happier and freer by using gentle humor to ease harsh self-judgments.

Speaker 03 -Joel Elfman - Mindful Eating - Changing Eating Habits and Losing Weight with the Power of Your Mind

Mindful Eating is the idea of paying attention when you eat. Exploring food and what you put in your mouth with all your sense; taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing. What are the feelings and emotions that arise as you explore.

In this busy day and age, too often we are multi-tasking, eating on the run, while reading, watching TV. We don't pay attention to what we put in our body, barely notice how it tastes or how much we ate until it is all done.

During this talk, we outline some of the physical, emotional and mental issues that can arise from not paying attention to your food. We'll explore some simple exercises that you can use to change how you experience food. And as time permits, we may do a simple guided meditation in Mindful Eating.

Joel Elfman is NLP Trainer and a hypnotist with over a dozen years in the field, as well as a massage therapist and an energy worker. Joel specializes in working with clients for weight loss, confidence and stress. He is the creator of Body Hypnosis, a unique form of massage and bodywork that gently works with the whole body to transform physical, mental and emotional issues. He is the Organizer or Co-Organizer of over 20 Meetup groups devoted to self-development, alternative health and holistic practices.
