What you'll learn in this spirituality class:

In this 4-week program, Mike Cotayo and Kathryn Carey-Ackermann will teach gentle, easy-to-learn, self-healing practices based on Energy Healing, Gestalt Therapy, Yoga, and Qigong practices and principles that will support you in your journey to wholeness and wellness. Trauma, whether experienced early in life or as an adult, becomes locked in the body and mind. If left unresolved, it can have serious impacts on all aspects of life.

From Energy Healing Traditions you will learn:

  • Basic Energy Healing protocols, how to open to energy, and use it for self-healing
  • How to scan your energy, gain a deeper understanding of imbalances, and what they can teach you
  • What are Chakras (energy centers in and around your body) and how they are accessed for healing
  • Self-healing techniques including Radiant, Chakra, and Color Healings
  • Understanding and rebalancing of the male and female energies

  • Using the ideas of present centeredness, to ground and promote self-sufficiency
  • Embodiment, breath work, visualization, and field theory (the idea of what is in our awareness, affecting the world around us)
  • Promoting greater health and understanding

From the Yoga and Qigong traditions you will learn:

  • Gentle movement and stances that will help release blockages and ground the body. All movement will be appropriate and modified for any age and physical ability.
  • Meditations including seated, standing, and walking variations that will help quiet and calm the mind
  • Visualizations for healing and visioning for your life
  • Breathing techniques including the Ujjayi Breath, 3-Part Breath, and Cooling Breath that will help bring the body and mind into balance
  • Relaxation techniques including the 4-8 Breath and Body Scan that you can use daily
