Proper alignment and attunement of the energies of body, mind and spirit provides us with a clear and present awareness. This awareness
allows us to know what is good for ourselves, as well as to attract those things that assist us to be happy and healthy. We can become more conscious of what robs us of our natural healthy state and eliminate the sources of our struggles. Instead of learning just another technique or taking on another method of learning that feels like a burden, developing energetic awareness not only provides the means to be in touch with ourselves in a way that helps to identify the roots of our reactions and difficulties but also gives us a way to be able to change them permanently.
Energy work is about learning to listen to our body and mind in a new way, one that helps us to create health and happiness from the inside out! It is also about bringing balance to our lives, fulfilling a basic need for purpose and meaning, as well as opening to the wisdom available to each of us. Educating ourselves about how to work with energy can also aid in riding the waves of life more gracefully. We have an innate capacity for joy, pleasure, harmony and a balanced spiritual toughness that goes largely untapped. Working with our personal energies can help uncover these inner capabilities so we may find pleasure and fulfillment in everyday life.

As a culture we are grappling with yearning for deeper connections within ourselves, with each other, and the world around us. Through learning to quiet our minds, navigate the mind-body, and work with our energies we can accomplish these tasks.
