Inner Balance/Inner Wisdom

with Alison Babil

 

 

Last Saturday of Each Month, 10-11:30am -- $15

 

 

 

Join us for a weekend workshop to release stress, set goals, re-balance and move forward with your inner wisdom….

We all have an inner compass yet we often neglect it amidst the stress, speed, and cacophony of life.  Using tools from Soul Lightening Acupressure, we will begin to slow down and align to the more subtle, wiser aspects of ourselves.  We will use a gentle, guided chakra meditation and self acupressure to balance internally and begin to hear the our inner guidance more clearly.

Combined with mindful awareness, Soul Lightening Acupressure not only brings physical and mental calming, it can also strengthen our relationship with our deeper, wiser self, and our intuition.  

Bring an intention or question that you would like to explore for the month ahead.  Also bring a notebook and pen.

Alison Babil is trained in massage, craniosacral therapy, reiki, polarity therapy, Alchemical Alignment and Soul Lightening acupressure.  She sees clients for massage, acupressure, reiki and intuitive readings.

 

Please call (202) 686-7046 to reserve your spot and make payment.

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Spirit, Soul or Universal God (Rei) and energy, force, or Breath of Life (Ki).  It is traditionally translated as Universal Life Force.  Reiki is one of many tools supporting physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.  The essence of Reiki training is the attunements.  The Reiki teacher takes specific steps during meditations to open a channel within the student for energy to flow.  After the channel is made clearer between our earthly personality and the Spirit of Universal forces, shifts in our journeys often occur.  Reiki training is a transformative experience.
