This do-it-yourself workshop will give you tools you need for reducing stress.
It is part lecture, but mostly experiential, as you are guided through simple but highly effective ways to work with your nervous system to lower the stress reaction. Whether it's tight muscles, negative self-talk, feelings of time pressure or general agitation, there are things you can do to help yourself.
We will practice movement exercises, visualization, and meridian tapping from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).
The goal is to experience something that you can then go home and practice, and perhaps share with family and friends.

The Local Living Venture is pleased to join in this event with Kathy Montan, a Body-Centered Expressive Therapist in private practice near Canton, NY and a registered Somatic Movement Therapist through ISMETA.  She has been giving workshops since 1994, including ones for Hospice, School Counselors of Northern NY, St. Lawrence University, SUNY Potsdam, Clarkson University, the Office for the Aging, and a previous series of well-received Stress Relief workshops to benefit the Local Living Venture.
