   NEW! EFT (Tapping) 3-Part Series
  Part 1: Saturday, May 14, 9:00-10:30am
Part 2: Saturday, June 4, 9:00-10:30am
Part 3:  TBA
Join us for a  three-part series with Meryl Hayton. Learn how to use EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), or tapping therapy, to manage your stress and find ease amongst chaos.

In this 90 minute experiential group class, you will be guided in a safe & compassionate space to learn the basics of how EFT and LOA & how it will help you self regulate your nervous system, calm your energy and keep you emotionally balanced.


EFT is short for Emotional Freedom Technique which is a non-invasive form of acupuncture (a.k.a tapping) in which you tap on Chinese meridian points while saying psychological phrases pertaining to your issue so they can properly be released making you feel better. These results can be PERMANENT, not just temporary. 

When emotions are avoided or forced down they don't just GO AWAY, they get stored in your body. When stored there long enough and not permitted to move as they are naturally supposed to do, it creates many forms of DIS-EASE in your body, weighing on your mental and physical health. 

Once you’ve CLEARED some emotional clutter you are able to use the practices of Law Of Attraction which is to simply focus on what you want. But it must be a consistent practice so you allow in what you DO WANT in your life like more LOVING, SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIPS, VIBRANT HEALTH and A FULFILLING CAREER.

You will:

  • receive awareness, healing and clarity for your mind & body

  • learn how to use this practice daily in your life to relieve your stress for good

  • learn how to self-regulate your emotions & nervous system

  • learn how to shift your mindset quickly and stay anchored in the energy to building a life you love

  • feel calm, centered, hopeful and excited about life. 

Info on Sessions 2 & 3 to come.

Reservation required. Workshop limited to 10 people.

Cost: $40

Soap of the Month
Lavender  comes from the Latin word "Lavare", which means "to wash". According to the earliest documentation from Ancient Egypt, lavender oil was used in the mummification process. Lavender was used as a bath additive in Persia, Ancient Greece and Roman cultures, where it was believed that lavender helped to purify the body and mind.  Such a multi-purpose plant, lavender is used to promote good health and well being. Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites.  Lavender is widely used for relaxation and stress relief, and imparts calming qualities due to the soothing and unique fragrance
