Kathleen Lohr became enchanted with Ayurveda nearly thirty years ago when a fellow herbalist returned from Nepal and described the exotic form of healthcare practiced there. Kathleen became licensed in massage in order to prepare for a scholarship in the Sri Sri Ayurveda Six-Month Residential Internship at Arte de Vivre in Quebec, Canada. During this excellent and intensive program, she perfected the Ayurvedic Bodywork treatments, Marma Chikitsa and Pancha Karma techniques that form the basis of her work.

Learn how it feels to be truly “sugar free”

Recently released research has shown it is not fat that makes us fat - it is sugar And is that any surprise when the average American consumes as much as 25 teaspoons of added sugar a day? Sugar also leads to inflammation, which is believed to be the root cause of many illnesses including autoimmune diseases, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Because of sugar’s addictive qualities it is difficult to cut back, and the fact that it is ubiquitous in our food supply makes it almost impossible to avoid. Sugar is actually 8 times more addictive than cocaine ~ and this why a strong support system creates a greater chance of success when changing your eating patterns. Additionally, there are 61 different names for sugar ~ come discover the ways it is hidden in many foods.

$125 by April 12 / $145 After

In this series we will have a chance to connect with each other in a supportive group, practicing chakra based mind/body techniques. We will be reading an excellent book written by Jacquelyn Small and practice some of Anodea Judith’s work, both teachers of mine. Through lecture, book study and self-reflection we notice where the energy is held in our body when we are fearful jealous, insecure, sad, or anxious as emotion is held our connective tissue.

Observing our energetic charge we can shift cellular memories that are stuck, depleted or scattered. We are able to connect & experience being in our body in a new way. Witnessing our thoughts/feelings together and allowing them to be acknowledged without judgment, we release the tension of our holding patterns to relax into a deeper connection to ourselves. The sacred place that has been waiting to be touched by self-acceptance. A forgiveness that welcomes grace and the reawakening to sense our life force in a more connected way.

*Book study assignment & dialogue
*Exploring your body’s developmental & guarding patterns through the chakras system
*Self-awareness practices through buddy system & journaling
*Meditations & bio-energetics techniques
*Increasing self-understanding & love
*Having fun together!

Join me as we gain clarity and compassion for ourselves, and begin to open into a deeper more integrated place inside our hearts.

   * Continuing education hours possible for licensed professional counselors.
