SPEAKING

She speaks at conferences, yoga festivals, private events, and healing retreats nationwide.

Workshop creation
Amy is happy to create a workshop or retreat based on your needs. She is comfortable being on stage in front of the crowd or on the floor hanging out with the crowd. Whether it’s a healing weekend or a couple of hours spent at a large business organization, Amy’s warm and engaging personality will captivate, entertain and educate your audience.

Training
In addition to speaking, Amy works closely with holistic organizations and medical centers to train staff and practitioners to use her techniques for their own self-care in preventing burn-out and absorbing the trauma of patients. She also teaches how to easily share some of her self-healing tools with patients during appointments. Through her trainings, she’s discovered that giving effective self-help tools to patients can eliminate a lot of “emergency” panicked calls to the office, fear and anxiety about new protocols (which often result in a physical reactions to them), new symptoms, resistance in following current protocols, and so on.  While busy physicians and staff can’t be expected to focus on addressing the emotional component of illness in its entirety (that is a speciality of its own), it can be hugely helpful for staff to know some simple protocols.
