Pathways to Sustainable Practice: Preventing Burnout with Practical Magic (a practitioner-only retreat to nourish and renew)

With Laura Greiner, MAc, Licensed Acupuncturist, Founder and owner of The Seed to Star Collective and Leah Tioxon, MSW

September 27 - 29, 2019

Join Laura Greiner and Leah Tioxon of The Seed to Star Collective as we offer our very first retreat in the beautiful North Georgia mountains!

The intention of this unique and magical event will be to honor the healing heart within each of us and will include:

meditations * acupuncture * stone grids * card readings * discussions * stone medicine treatments * ceremony around a 400 year old Hemlock tree * bonfires * nature walks * and more…

A heartfelt discussion will be facilitated as Laura and Leah discuss:

  • ways to support both energetic and physical boundaries
  • boundary violations and how to handle and prevent them
  • how to fire a client, how to navigate clients at serious risk of harm, working with clients in relationship, etc.
  • building rapport, staying true to yourself when helping others, honoring your time
  • power dynamics in the practitioner/client relationship, when to refer out
  • fostering fair exchanges-both monetary and otherwise
  • compassion fatigue

Leah and Laura will share their tips, resources, and rituals they have built upon and experienced in their many years of practice.  Each participant will also receive a private card reading with Leah and a custom support box of tools with such items as stones, elixirs, and more.
