Setting Healthy Boundaries

~Do you trust too easily and allow people into your life without qualification only to find you are in a one-sided relationship? Or maybe you’ve been taken advantage of?  Abused, hurt, neglected, or let down yet again?

~Is the constant connection (internet, smartphones, social media…) to work, family/friends, and the feeling that you have to be tuned in and on duty 24/7 wearing you down?

~Do you say YES to things you really don’t want to do? Or feel like you need to offer excuses and reasons when you do refuse an invitation or a request?

If any of the above scenarios are familiar to you, join us for a brief grounding meditation followed by a discussion on how to become discerning, establish emotional ground rules, and create firm boundaries for interaction with others.

The first 50 people in attendance will receive “Setting Boundaries”, a Phoenix & the Mystic Healing Essence. These homeopathic tinctures support emotional healing & well-being. The Setting Boundaries Healing Essence will help you to make lasting changes so you can establish healthy boundaries in all aspects of your life.

Carol Rusch

A lifetime of stressful jobs; sitting in front of a screen too many hours a week; unhealthy relationships; money struggles; terrible eating habits – all led to a multitude of mysterious health issues. None seemed related, some were debilitating, and most have never been diagnosed much less treated or healed. And that led to more stress… It was a vicious cycle and a pattern that I needed desperately to break.

So, I went on a mission and started conducting my own research. I worked with a number of medical professionals and health science experts as well as non-traditional fields such as holistic/homeopath physicians, Reiki/Energy healers, specialty massage therapists, physic mediums… you name it, I tried most of it.

For more than a decade, I’ve been educating myself, making big and small changes in my life, and slowly I’ve started to heal – from the inside out. I’m a work in progress but I see a light at the end of the tunnel and as a healer that inspired me to help others who battle stressful lifestyles and mysterious health issues.

Phoenix & the Mystic is taking flight by offering a collective group of diverse healers that are coming together under one “roof” in an effort to share a balanced approach to wellness. Together we will offer products and services to heal the mind, body & soul with a holistic and nature-inspired approach to intentional living.

Navigating Being An Empath

What is an Empath? You are!
Did you know there are many types of empaths? Do you want to know how being an empath relates to Ascension? Are you curious what the strengths and weaknesses of being an empath are and how you can you turn those weaknesses into strengths?  We’ll discuss it all including types of empaths, the strengths, the weaknesses, the gifts, what it means to manage yourself and your energy as an empath, how being an empath can affect your health and how to heal common health problems that empaths face.

Her Ascension Healer Program is becoming increasingly popular for healing oneself and learning to guide others in their healing journeys as well.

Her Journey now takes on a different path, helping people realize how much Breath, Singing Together, and Flow of Movement can heal and keep you healthy, and how her angelically channeled harp music can heal. She has developed her Divine Flow Immersion program for people with anxiety, insomnia, overwhelm, stress, or just people needing a reprieve from the over-analysis, brainy world. To get back into the comfort of Mother Earth spirits for grounding, being aware of your body, and really KNOWING your body to begin healing it.
When you sing you are using what god granted and designed for you to express yourself and have healthy thriving body, mind, spirit. Singing with good breath and resonance puts you back into a safe, peaceful, grounded place. Singing one message, one thought in a circle of healing people with love and high frequency sounds.

Doris’ singing melts hearts, revives souls. She brings out joy, hope, love, peace and wonder with her healing voice, harp and breath.

The Basics of Energetic Hygiene

When we pause our external focus and turn our perceptive faculties inward we find that at every moment we are vibrating a dynamic expression of thoughts, belief systems, attitudes and emotions. We find that although these vibrations are IN us they are NOT always aligned with who we are. Many of the thoughts we have stuck on repeat are inherited from our lineage and absorbed from our surroundings. Whether conscious of them or not, these vibrations determine our experience of living.

In this workshop we will learn simple tools to clear our energy field so we can vibrate more of who we really are.

The workshop will be comprised of presentation and guided meditations on the following

-The Basics of Energetic anatomy
-Presentation of a framework that allows us to distinguish what is ours verses someone else’s
-How to invite in deep vibrational support from the Earth and Cosmos
-How to clear energies that aren’t yours from your field
-How to recall your energy back from different times, places, people
-How to to allow your unique vibration to ring, unobstructed through your being

Attendees will leave feeling refreshed, enlivened, more themselves, and more connected to the bounty of subtle energetic resources available for collaboration.
