Experiential sessions allow you to begin using self-care strategies immediately. Be inspired, informed, and empowered as you learn to better care for yourself as you care for others.

Guaranteed engagement, inspiration, and laughter!
Professional Statement of Purpose: The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to understand and integrate holistic/integrative concepts, particularly self-care, into their personal and professional practices.
Participants must be present for entire presentation to earn CE’s; no partial credit given.
Amanda’s knowledge has come from many sources including personal experience, the best teacher. Her personal relationship with “dis-ease” and unenlightened care-givers has taught her the importance of self-care, stress management, and personal responsibility that lead to self-empowerment and wellness. Amanda has studied Holistic Health at VT College, with Seeds & Bridges Center for Holistic Nursing Education, with Bernie Siegel at ECaP (Exceptional Cancer Patients,) with Brian Luke Seaward of Paramount Wellness Institute, with the National Institute of Whole Health, and with many others.
