Back to Balance Series

The Back to Balance Series consists of three classes, and you can pick and choose the classes you want (but you’ll probably want all three!). These classes are held monthly on a Saturday or Sunday from 4pm to 6:45pm. We currently offer two or three classes each month. Contact Bryan Crusius to learn more and enroll. You can email him at sacounselor747@gmail.com.


Beginner’s Relaxation & Meditation

This is a class for busy people who desire simple methods to de-stress through relaxation and meditation techniques. Participants will hear about the benefits of meditation, as well as some myths and misunderstandings about the practice. Then, participants will be guided through several types of simple meditation techniques they can incorporate into their daily lives.


EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

What the heck is EFT? EFT founder Gary Craig explains it best:
Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT (often known as Tapping or EFT Tapping), is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body.

Class will cover basic EFT procedures and attendees will walk away fully competent in the application of it.

Journal Writing

Many people find journal writing helpful for processing emotions & thoughts about current challenges and past struggles and also for making future decisions. Some use journal writing for practicing gratitude (which has stunning benefits to our emotional health). For some people, the greatest problem with journal writing is just knowing where to start! Often, we can find ourselves staring at a blank page. In this course, participants will learn about the unique benefits of journal writing by hand and you’ll receive some writing ideas.


 How do I Learn More and Enroll?

Class size is limited to 10 participants. Reservation is required.

This class is facilitated by Bryan Crusius, M.A., L.P.C.-Supervisor.
