Over coffee with colleagues a few weeks ago in which we share holistic health ideas, our conversation turned to our clients and how many of them are feeling a lot of anxiety lately. Anxiety about finances, relationships, health issues, family, etc. But what seems most prevalent is a deep anxiety about feeling a lack of power in their lives to deal with the issues that are making them anxious, that they feel out of control.
Anxiety can impact upon many aspects of our physical and emotional self; digestive problems, trouble sleeping or waking up tired, lack of energy and drive, mental confusion, body aches and pains, headaches, muscle tension, depression, sadness, anger … When we ignore or don’t acknowledge that we’re anxious it takes its toll.
I’ve had a number of clients dismiss their anxieties as something they “just have to get over”, “others have worse things happening so my anxiety is stupid”, “there is nothing I can do about it so just have to live with the problems”. Yes, some pretty self defeating words whether spoken out loud or as self-talk.
During the month of October the at Hand to Health, in Abbotsford, the discussion is going to be around Anxiety. The power gained in acknowledging its existence and some holistically healthy ways to ease or resolve anxiety.
I was absolutely thrilled when I saw Cindy Bernicot’s next EFT Tapping & Meditation topic for her October workshop at Hand To Health because through tapping we open up to firstly acknowledge that the issue is there and how we honestly feel about it. Then we move on to taking back our own power to deal with the issue. Anxiety, like any other energy, needs to be moved in order to let it go, rather than resisting or denying its existence. I can’t think of a better stepping off point than with Cindy’s amazing guided workshops.

Tap Away Anxiety – Using EFT Tapping & Meditation to Deal with Anxiety & Panic Attacks
For the number of years that I’ve been a holistic health practitioner (20) and an adult dance teacher (12) I’ve heard women say some really disparaging things about themselves. Self critical, negative comments that they likely wouldn’t even think of saying to someone else.
Comments that may have been made by others who have judged them, or that they have taken upon themselves and repeated often enough that they believe them to be true, or a message that has been put out by the media and accepted by society as truth….this playshop is going to dare you to challenge all of that!
While we may have moments where we focus on the positive aspects about ourselves and our lives it is all too easy to become mired in the “what’s wrong with me” thoughts, embrace them and live our lives from their negative viewpoint.What if you had some techniques to use when this happens that immediately move you into a positive focus more often, and that space becomes where you live from? How do you think that would impact upon your life?
During this playshop, in fun and creative ways, we’ll dare to
move our focus to embrace the present and all those things that are RIGHT with us,
play with easy techniques to keep our focus on all that is RIGHT with us (including tapping, affirmations, colouring, meditation…)
cover physical, mental/emotional and spiritual ways to shift, and in that way ensure that the different ways in which we learn and absorb information, are covered
Group size is limited and your paid registration will hold your space in the workshop.
Registration includes: playbook pages, meditation CD or download, organic refreshments and snacks.
Regularly $75 register by the earlybird date for $49 Sunday February 22nd noon to 4:00
