Hello Holistic Practitioners!
Happy New Moon. It’s the season of the roots and connection with our ancestors. What a great time to learn new techniques or dig deeper into the techniques are are working on—discovering new nuances as you go.
Fo those of you who are attending Tuesday’s Practitioner Apprentice Circle (or those of you who want to play along at home) I’ve put some suggested resource materials on our Resources page as well as down below. Let me know how this works for you. They were simply made from videos that apprentices took during Circles past and then emailed to me—but there is good stuff to be gleaned. I would love to have a head count, so please RSVP if you can.
Next Practitioner Apprentice Circle: Oct 29th, 2019

CONTRAINDICATIONS & CONCERNS
New Practitioners and Practitioner Apprentices:
If you are new and have not yet learned The Alignment Technique, don’t worry—you will get your chance. We can do a practice day dedicated to The Alignment Technique after your Orientation. Get a head start with this video
Winter 2019 Revision Session will be on December 3rd
Does anyone want to add an Orientation day the day before and a Practice day the day after?
Anything else? Let me know.
Here's a simple video that was part of a recent series on Hormonal Health. When I track down the rest of the videos, I will post them here too.
I am pleased to let you know that I have updated all of the client handouts and have added Additional Handouts about eachRegimen and Ritual. I recommend printing them out and getting to know them as there is so much you can learn from each page.
These Handouts are the pages you are welcome (and encouraged) to share with your clients. It is important that we are consistent in the recommendations that we make--especially when clients are so easily confused (because of media, etc...) and soon revert to the old ways (not counting drops, mist and then oil, straight up oil as a massage medium before bed, 12 grain bread, low-fat, too much raw foods....you get the point) unless we give them good reminders.
As you become a firm believer in the practices (through your own experience and your S.O.A.P. Studies) you will be sharing them with confidence--knowing exactly how to pinpoint who needs which handouts for the quickest and most effective path to great skin.
***note-there seems to be a lot of trouble with click-though from this page. If it doesn't work--go though the Apprentice Resources Page and log in from there. All of the Handouts are also in the Google Drive. My apologies for digital hiccups.
Ha! So after I made this video showing everything in a spiral-bound. We unanimously decided that using three three-ring binders (like we used to) works better. But all the information is there and I am still so proud!
Summer 2019 Revision Session
Sarah Demonstrates The Alignment Technique.
What a great day! Thank you to everyone who showed up. If you missed it, here's a recap:
1. Everyone got a chance to get hands on with The Alignment Technique.
2. Those who had not had a chance before got to feel how light yet precise the touch of the wands should be.
3. We handed out these lovely cheat sheets for you to keep by your side while "practicing"
We also pulled out the triage cots and came up with some pretty cool protocols for on-the-go and quickie facials using very limited supplies.
If you missed this practice day, you can download and print the cheat sheet from the "Techniques" page in the Educational Hub. If you want some one-on-one tutoring with Emma, Sarah, or Jen over the summer, don't hesitate to reach out.
Reminder: You may purchase another set of wands for $48 per set.
I have a new article up on the Brooklyn Herborium Website to talk about Facial Bathing within the Regimen and to introduce our new product "Dew Drops". You can find the article by clicking the Facial Bathing photo below:
Also: here is the meme we talked about with "Emotional Housekeeping" I'm digging it.
When YOU are Your Business
Molly joined our Apprentice Circle today to give us some insight into the Business side of Business. After we talked about the Legalities of working out of a home and other considerations when it comes to finding or sharing a space to work out of, we got down to Molly's Checklist of How to Take Care of Business.
It was so nice to see everyone at the Apprentice Circle. We had a great day. Here are a few highlights:
Apprentice Circle: Pinpointed Integrated Therapies (2nd phase Therapies)
5/28/2019 12:30-4:30 pm
These specialized services allow the client to “choose the results”, while you, the Holistic Aesthetician, chooses the exact methods. This is that class that puts everything together for you so that you may utilize all of the tools you have (learned though us or not) to provide authentic, lasting, results from the very first time you meet with a client.

Hello Holistic Beauties!
I made a couple videos for a client that I though you would appreciate, so I am throwing them up here for you to look at and think about and play with.
Enjoy for now. We can talk more about any of this at our next meeting. I'll be adding an Apprentice Circle about Harmony Zone Toning Movements to the schedule for September as well as a Friday Night Community Class for the General Public.

Thank you for visiting. We are so glad that you stopped by! We hope that the information gleaned here helps to make your transition to beautiful, healthy skin the natural way more pleasant and complete. Please email us or set up an appointment for a consultation if you have any questions!
