Women Empowering Women Presents
“Tapping into Your Healing Wisdom” with Colleen Akiko


Date: Monday, August 1st
Time: 10am-12 noon
Location: For Goodness Sake

What if our need for healing could be met from within -- not just for our bodies, but our memories, emotional pain and fear-based conditioning, too? Join Colleen Akiko for an introduction to the simple, safe and empowering tool of "TWR-ing."

Transformative Wholistic Reintegration (TWR) is a wholistic hybrid of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Eye Movement Desensitation, and Reprocessing (EMDR). Colleen calls it the “face, erase and replace with grace” technique. It catalyzes transformation by enabling the installation of positive thoughts and feelings to replace cleared negative issues, such as pain, trauma, addiction, insomnia and more.

rinpoche

Venerable Sogan Rinpoche Bio:

Ven. Sogan Rinpoche (Tulku Pema Lodoe) was born in the Golok region of Amdo, in eastern Tibet. At the age of seventeen he went to Bayan Monastery to start his formal spiritual training. Later, he was recognized by H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama as the 6th Sogan Rinpoche and as a young man was enthroned at Awo Sera Monastery in East Kham (Serta), which he founded during his first incarnation as Sogan Rinpoche. He is also the head of Bayan Monastery in Golok. He assumed responsibility there at the direction of his root guru, Khenpo Munsel, a dzogchen master and teacher in Tibet throughout most of the twentieth century and a chief disciple of Khenpo Ngag Chung. Rinpoche has studied with many great masters of all four traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. After many years of study, pilgrimage and solitary retreat, Rinpoche left Tibet to continue his studies in Nepal. While there, he studied extensively with prominent teachers and spent several years in retreat.

Currently Rinpoche is the Spiritual Director of the San Francisco Bay area Dharma group, Tupten Osel Choling. He travels throughout North America and Europe to teach Buddhism. In 2004 Rinpoche established The Sogan Foundation (TSF), a secular non-profit organization which funded the construction of a science and technology building for high school students in Golok, Tibet. TSF's second project, constructing a basic water system for the senior community located at Bayan Monastery, was completed during the summer of 2010.

More information about Sogan Rinpoche's teachings can be found online at Tupten Osel Choling's website.

What if our need for healing could be met from within -- not just for our bodies, but our memories, emotional pain and fear-based conditioning, too? Join Colleen Akiko for an introduction to the simple, safe and empowering tool of "TWR-ing."

Transformative Wholistic Reintegration (TWR) is a wholistic hybrid of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Eye Movement Desensitation, and Reprocessing (EMDR). Colleen calls it the “face, erase and replace with grace” technique. It catalyzes transformation by enabling the installation of positive thoughts and feelings to replace cleared negative issues, such as pain, trauma, addiction, insomnia and more.

TWR-ing begins by holding a high intention, then processing a taste of the issue’s emotions and thoughts while steadily tapping left and right, interspersed with a genuine "feel good" statement. Once the issue's intensity has diminished, it is replaced with something much healthier. The subconscious then receives the issue's healing balm like a gracious gift.

A TWR round may feel like heart-cleansing and empowering prayer, clearing years of blockage so one’s inner spring flows unhindered to balance and heal the whole self. Come discover for yourself how inspiring, practical and effective TWR-ing feels.

A Transformational Coach, Reiki Master Therapist, musician, songwriter, and teacher, Colleen loves to witness the joyful life changes her clients experience "from the inside out." Her latest CD, “Onwa,” can be found at For Goodness Sake in Truckee and on her website at www.EssentialWellBeing.me

Seating in For Goodness Sake is limited, so reservations are highly recommended. Please e-mail nttwomen@yahoo.com by July 29th to reserve your space. Thank you.

Women Empowering Woman is dedicated to providing motivational speakers who address different aspects of achieving balance and harmony through the Mind, Body and Spirit. For more information about our organization. e-mail martha@omegaport.com.
