Personal Growth and Healing Intensive
Dr. Maria Michael
Dr. Maria Michael, a Native American elder and licensed psychologist, will offer an intensive on Ancient Wisdom Healing Circles from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., March 19 and 20, at the Watertown Center for Healing Arts. Sponsored by Earthsong Herbals and the Boston School of Herbal Studies, students will take part in healing circles, learn how to transmit color and sound, and work with breath. There will also be hands-on healing.
“The focus is to help support positive shifts in physical, emotional and spiritual health,” says Michael. She will also talk about plant energy and how plants are used ceremonially in her Native American lineage.
Although Michael has extensive doctorate level training in neuroscience, nothing in her academic training, she says, prepared her to see that imbalances begin at the level of Spirit and Heart. “If these imbalances remain unchanged, they begin to manifest in the body as illnesses or symptoms, which may be viewed as early warning systems,” she says. This intensive, according to Michael, offers an experience of energetic healing on both the subtle levels of spirit and the deep cellular levels of the body.
