How to Heal Your Scars

Scars can really shift your health, from decreased range of motion of a limb to constricting bowel function, they are large and in charge. The good news is that they are uncomplicated to heal, especially with a little guidance and perseverance.

First let’s figure out if you even like me. Watch the intro video, and see if I feel like a fit.

 

  • Learn how scars form (in layman’s terms) and why they are a hazard
  • Assess! Form a baseline of your body’s terrain. This is an important first step, especially for all my C-Section mamas out there.
  • Next I will get you introduced to powerful tools of healing that you may already own
  • Practical application, learn the process of applying these tools to get your heal on.

Videos are the primary teaching medium, with an occasional handout. Discussions and questions are invited.

 This course is for people who are interested in self healing, scar reduction, and making a difference in how their bodies function.

    Can’t wait for my surgeon to see it at my next appt. I really can’t wait to share with others. I just gave a friend your info yesterday. I didn’t do it on my own. I followed your teaching and had faith, but NEVER did I expect such a fabulous result!!

    -Wanda Gentry

    As a Doula and a Massage therapist I am always looking for new tools and techniques to offer my clients. When I learned that Rowan was offering this course I jumped at the opportunity to learn. The simple,affordable, tangible way she offers clients to take the power of healing into their own hands is phenomenal. Shes is knowledgable, relatable and entertaining. Thanks for sharing your magic Rowan.

Create Your Own DECK! Major Arcana: One card at a time.

(Electra didn't really like that.)

(Electra didn’t really like that.)

Tarot People, we are PUMPED!!!!

Fresh back from the readers studio where we met some awesome peeps, learned bunches, and are ready to share and grow our knowledge! SO if you wanna come to class early and practice your layouts and spreads, we have new goodies to play with!

The PLAN: We are going to study one card at a time!

First up is some intuition development, seeing what the card says to us personally with colors, folks on the card. the way their bodies are positioned etc, and then we will talk about what the traditional meanings are for the Rider Waite deck.

From there we will shred up some magazines for a collage fest as we create our own card with our own personal meanings and significance. Its also cool to cheat and put a few words on in or on the back of your card before we laminate that baby.

CollageBring your favorite deck or two, and for sure no experience necessary cause mostly we are wanting to have fun, hang with like minded people and get to know ourselves a little bit better through art.

Class is $13
It’s on Saturday nights from 5-7pm.

Interested, shoot me an email…this event is invite only. (cool huh!?!)

xo,
Rowan

ps we are using Tarot Wisdom by Rachel Pollack if you wanna get that FormalTarot Wisdom
