POSTPONED UNTIL FALL

We are thrilled to welcome Cathy and Florian to Sandpoint to offer their unique live Journey of Applied AromaGnosis: Aromatherapy for Trauma & Addiction and share their alchemical framework for transmuting pain, trauma, addictive patterns, and self-sabotaging behaviors.

THIS JOURNEY IS FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE:

Interested in the connection between trauma and addiction who are looking for innovative and effective tools and approaches to better understand and transform with trauma and addiction.


Counselors, therapist, and/or health professionals who are frustrated with current, limiting approaches to addiction and co-occurring conditions such as trauma and interested in the ways essential oils can alleviate symptoms as well as help to increase self-awareness and to transform consciousness.


Aware it is not enough to alleviate symptoms and behaviors without addressing our underlying core wounds.


Looking for a new framework of transformation to help yourself and others finally integrate, understand and move on from being controlled unconsciously by these core wounds.


Tuned in to the sense that addictive behaviors control us from a deeply unconscious place within that can be accessed and healed.


Interested in shadow work and how we can work with unconscious forces to help heal addiction and its co-occurring conditions.

Your guides on this journey are Cathy Skipper and Florian Birkmayer, MD from AromaGnosis.
