“MAGIC FOR EVERYDAY LIVING”
Sharon Balsamo, Counselor, Coach & Earth Witch
Friday, December 14th 5:30 to 8 P.M.
Sharon will talk about how she found magic and how it coincides with her expertise in mental and emotional health, the foundational basics of how magic works, and popular misconceptions about earth-based spiritual practices (aka: witchcraft). We will discuss how you can use magic in everyday living, especially to support and enhance personal growth work.
AND—-we will conclude the evening by concocting a prosperity spell to increase abundance for all of us during the holiday season!
“I have always been called to live a magical life. I suffered from anxiety and depression as a teen and began reading tarot cards at 13 years old and used spirituality as a lifeline to get me through young adulthood. This translated into going into the field of counseling to help others overcome their own demons. Over time I have worked to join the therapeutic and spiritual worlds, which has given me a sense of joy and expansiveness that goes beyond words!”
I am a counselor, healer, intuitive, and facilitator of transformational experiences. I have become a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Nationally Certified Counselor, a Certified Sacred Breathwork Facilitator, and trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy, Psychodrama, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Hakomi. I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and incorporate alternative modalities into traditional psychotherapy techniques for holistic, lasting transformations. I also offer transformational coaching as a holistic approach to profound change and healing, helping women create and walk a spiritual path that is empowering and fulfilling.
We hope you will come play and experience magic with us!
