These healing sessions are not a passive experience, but an opportunity for you to engage in your healing Journey directly. There is often a dialog to some degree between practitioner and client throughout the session. Working with the philosophy of choice, how the session goes is really up to you. In a safe environment, more awareness will be brought to the core of what ails you. If the weather is nice, the session may optionally be held outside.
