11am – 4pm at Nourishing Journey
8975 Guilford Road, Columbia MD
I began volunteering for Araminta a few years ago.
It is very important to me to help you understand how truly amazing this organization is.
Most causes are dedicated to recovering individuals from their situations.
Araminta goes beyond, and above that call. They provide all things a survivor may need once they have left their situation. They pair the survivors with mentors and make sure every single one of their critical needs are met – for them and their children. Every single thing from medical care, therapy, clothing, housing, and schooling and care for their children. Survivors are provided food, transportation for their appointments, support in every place imaginable – courts, etc. We help them build their lives from a stable point.
Araminta is a volunteer based organization and they are in need of so much, all of the time.
On February 15th the practitioners at Nourishing Journey are donating their time and their talents to raise money that Araminta needs to continue their mission. In addition to services there will also be an education room with speakers on different subjects throughout the event.
Here’s what you can do:

So many people are looking for ways to heal themselves, to overcome, and move past the things in their lives that bring them down. People are ready for change. People are ready for better. And everyone likes feeling healthy.
I invite you to think back to your first day of school, your first job interview, that big fight with a loved one, being cut off in traffic. Remember the last time you had a really big day, the kind that requires celebrating, like your wedding day.
Why? Because any event or experience (good, or not so good) that causes you to react on a psycho-emotional level has a direct and immediate affect at a neuro-physiolocal level for short or extended periods of time. Let me explain …
These intense and highly emotional events and experiences created charged energy – that is now stored in your body.
Why do we want to care about and acknowledge our charged moments?
Because the continued behavior of failing to acknowledge their effects risks creating stress related diseases, especially when suppressing the not so good ones. I tell my students all the time how simple things – even just stubbing your toe – is traumatic. But I encourage everyone to come up with their own definitions for 1)stress, 2)tension, and 3)trauma.
I am so passionate about helping people be experts for their own health and wellness plan that I created a 4 week series to deepen their healing experience. TRE® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) is a series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma (physical and emotional). Created by Dr. David Berceli TRE® safely activates your natural reflexive mechanism by way of neurophysiological rebalancing. And the most commonly reported benefits are decreased anxiety, the release of chronic tension, the discharge of emotional and physical trauma, improved sleep, mood and digestion, decreased aches and pains, improved flexibility, and the decrease in symptoms for sciatica, fibromyalgia, and other chronic conditions.
Individuals and communities around the world feel the
benefits of this modality for healing.
In this series, you will deeply explore your personal trauma time-line; determine your level of traumatic imprint; learn about the importance for properly discharging stored energy to create new emotional pathways and speeding up your recovery time; and how this modality for healing restores your Mind Body Spirit to wholeness – and more. Each class is a combination of education, self discovery, group discussion, and a group TRE® experience.
I am currently offering this course in 3 locations:
Every Saturday in January from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm at Truth Mind & Body in Sparks MD
Every Sunday in January from 2 – 4 pm at Nourishing Journey in Columbia MD
Every Monday in February from 7 – 9 pm at Zoetics Wellness Center in Pikesville MD
Pre-registration is required because seats are limited. Click on the locations link above to register. For more information, or to bring this series to your community – please email me directly. Cost is $150 per person. Please bring your personal journals, mats, blankets, and wear comfortable clothing you can stretch in.

Sh**t happens. Sometimes life can really suck. People suck.
People come to me because they are indulging in unwanted behaviors around food. The first thing I ask them is Who taught you how to eat this way?
See, what most people don’t realize is that somewhere along the way they were coping with something. They reached for that one thing that offered them pleasure – or control – in an otherwise sh**ty moment. It’s not your fault.
Now that you recognize you don’t like this part of you – you can change it. But with everything, as you learn something new – patience, support, guidance, exploration, and time are all necessary. So if you are ready to embrace a change, around an unwanted food behavior or habit – contact me. Let’s get curious together.
$20 per person, per class -OR- $15 early registration
