Parents: Do you ever wish you had a magic wand? A wand that could help bring calm; reducing upset, fears and tantrums? A wand that you could use not only for your children’s upsets, but for your own as well?
Lynn Mayer, Certified Nutrition Consultant, has a tool every parent can use and she’ll be sharing it at her program for preschool parents, “Getting in Touch: How to Calm Your Child with EFT,” (Emotional Freedom Technique,) on May 10, 5:30 p.m., in the basement of St. Patrick’s Church. The evening is free.
The program is the last the this year’s “Growing Together.” Sponsored by Mountain Sprouts Preschool, the series is “a forum for all the parents of young children in the Telluride community to get together and share creative solutions to our common parenting dilemmas,” says Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, director of the Growing Together series.
“A lot of parents wish we could magically make our children happier,” says Trommer. “Of course we do. And though I don’t believe in magic wands, I have seen how powerful the effects of EFT can be.”
EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, is a combination of Ancient Chinese Acupressure and Modern Psychology. “It’s a very simple, yet powerful process that can profoundly influence health and behavior,” says Mayer, “and children often respond the most quickly to its use. It just might be the wand parents wish for.”
Mayer received her Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition from San Diego State University in 1977 and completed her Master’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Santa Monica in 1994. She coaches both adults and children in how to maintain health through a nutrition and lifestyle program. She often teaches her clients how to use EFT for themselves and for their families. As Mayer notes, kids who seem “out of control” are “often just reflecting their parents being out of balance.”
Come, experience and learn the magic and power of Emotional Freedom Technique with Lynn. There will be healthy snacks provided. Parents only, please. For more information, contact Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer at 970-728-0399.
