Enhancing Your Practice by Connecting Intuitively with Others

Presented by John Michael Thornton

Location: Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center

*Lunch will be provided*

April 28, 2023

9:00am-4:30pm ET


Connecting on an intuitive level in your practice and relationships lets you set aside your first impressions and see beyond the surface. This intuitive connection can take multiple forms; from perceiving an aura, to tapping into chakra energies, or forming a heart connection. An intuitive connection can facilitate greater empathy with clients while offering clarity into confusing emotional responses, both for you as the clinician and for the client as well.

In this workshop we will explore ways to tap into your intuitive abilities to quickly form a connection with clients and then release that connection when it is no longer useful.  We will explore how to perceive an aura and how it changes with a person’s emotional state. We will define a heart connection and use movement and meditation to learn how to form the heart connection.  

We will also explore how to disconnect from a client, both within a session, when connecting with a client’s emotions may become distracting, and at the end of a session when that connection is no longer necessary.  We will also touch on ways to protect yourself from “energetic pollution” by practicing shielding and clearing techniques.

Finally, we will explore the ethics of energetic and intuitive connection including its benefits and pitfalls.

This workshop will stimulate creativity by using meditation, discussion, coloring, and a bit of dance.
