Seeing Things Differently is a highly interactive workshop for the serious practitioner of kinesiology techniques. As such, we will explore the definitions and ramifications of trauma and child abuse from a legal and ethical standpoint while defining our own skills, attitudes and responsibilities in the recovery field. As individuals, we will examine the issues from a personal stance, using new techniques to allow for discovery of any hidden attitudes, beliefs and memories which may hold us in victimization. The class is conducted in an atmosphere geared to enhance personal and professional identity. Journal work and guided meditations are included.

This class is offered as a beginning point toward personal and professional growth, addressing recovery from physical, sexual, mental and emotional trauma, abuse and neglect.

Pre-requisite:
The pre-requisite for Seeing Things Differently is 32 documented hours of energy kinesiology classes using standard muscle testing techniques. Seeing Things Differently is a pre-requisite for the Dyslexia Symposium.

Students will be expected to access and clear a muscle circuit as well as identify and correct switching and blocking. Stacking, or retaining mode, will be used extensively and will be reviewed thoroughly in class. A basic understanding of chakras and flower essences is required.

Students whose backgrounds include abuse are expected to be well into their own recovery. Any student who seems unable to maintain a safe and confidential class atmosphere will be asked to leave.

It is understood that the techniques introduced in this class are not to be used with anyone in an active abuse situation. Students agree to investigate and comply with the child abuse laws of their community and to work within the confines of their profession.

Approximately 40% of the workshop will be spent in lecture and 60% in hands-on practice. Specific balances will be provided and demonstrated prior to hands-on sessions.

This workshop is four days or 32 hours.

Cost: $500 US when registered three weeks in advance; $575 US thereafter.
