B – Be Free from Pain and Stress – Theresa McGee, Illumine Wellness Arts
Learn a simple but effective technique to quickly reduce or eliminate pain and stress. In this workshop I will teach participants how to be more connected to their physical body.  It is this connection that allows the innate wisdom of the body to begin to heal itself.  I will then guide participants to a place of greater neutrality where they can access their own life force energy and direct it to eliminate what no longer serves their highest good.  As participants remain in this place of neutrality, I will facilitate the process by observing their energy field, strengthening them to whatever weaknesses come up (if you are strong “to” something, then it can no longer weaken you), and making particular commands, using a uniquely integrated system of energy modalities.  All of this can be done without any contact whatsoever, which is why distance healing is possible, and why I am able to accomplish my work via phone sessions.
