Empowerment happens when we can change our limiting beliefs and silence our critical inner voices. This month, we welcome Avril Haye Matsui, who will share about her work empowering women to lead their best lives. A practitioner of the technique called Therapeutic Meditation Process, Avril uses coaching, mindfulness practices, and guided meditation to support positive change for clients to move beyond their limiting beliefs. This process enables people to become attuned to their bodies and emotions, and it can help reduce stress and pain, release undesired emotions, and heal trauma. Avril will give us a brief overview of the benefits of this approach and describe how we can use it in our lives. During her talk, she will lead us through a short guided meditation, so that we can personally experience one technique that she uses in her workshops to relieve stress and induce calm.
