Overall Objective of the Course:
Conscious Self-Care programs introduce participants to an expanded understanding of resonance and how their energetic presence affects those around them. With this expanded perception they'll gain a deeper understanding as to why it's important to take care of themselves, what simple intentional choices they can make throughout their day, and be empowered with new ways to recognize old patterns of behavior in order to make different choices. The ultimate goal of "Conscious Self-Care" is to inspire compassionate change, creating harmonious and thriving environments.
1. Identify the difference between sympathetic resonance, forced resonance, and entrainment
2. Determine how one’s energetic presence affects those around them
3. Define “Conscious Self-Care” as any intentional choice that supports one's physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and/or creative well-being.
4. Evaluate different conscious self-care options such as breathing and simple meditation techniques, music, and essential oils that fit into one’s daily routine
5. Integrate the use of daily conscious self-care options in one’s personal and professional lives
* Introduction and demonstration of resonance, sympathetic resonance, forced resonance and entrainment
* Relating the understanding of vibrational resonance to personal energy and importance of conscious self-care
* Introduction of simple self-care choices, easy meditation techniques, healing artwork in work/home spaces, high-quality essential oils - emphasizing as you take care of yourself, you’re better able to care of others
* Music as another self-care option, experience the difference between familiar vs. unfamiliar music and when to choose each type, and discerning the difference between music therapy and therapeutic music

Sampling of Comments from Audience Participants:
"Very appropriate to helping give better nursing care. Very different than what I expected."
"Well done. Very interesting and a new way of thinking."
"Very new information - very well presented." "Wonderful, contemplative theories."
"As an engineer, we're taught these concepts. I just never thought to apply them in this way."
"Such important concepts for self-care and helping others - thank you!"
"Too bad more clinical caregivers couldn't access this presentation. It would be so helpful for our ill patients."
"Very enlightening. I understand more about sound, vibrations and how through music/sound our inner selves can be healed."
"Very good information that I will use in my interpersonal relationships in my personal and professional life. Thank You!"
"Very useful information-can apply to real life."
"Excellent presentation. I can apply this daily."
"Makes so much sense - thankful you made us conscious of this"
"Such a wise message of self-care...one cannot pour from an empty cup. Everything is connected - love it! Totally enjoyed the info and actually better understand vibrational energy, which I am sensitive to."
"The pieces about harmony vs. meeting the other person where they are or trying to bring them to your frequency is SO RELEVANT to interpersonal relationships and social work in a professional setting. SO ENLIGHTENING - THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!"
"So helpful and practical! You have helped bring new insight and confirmation of our practices and values! Thank you a million!"
"I've often thought of some of these concepts, but thinking about them in terms of vibrations adds another dimension to them. My concepts have expanded and have become enriched."
"I think of all the messages you sent in the video, the one I like the best is that doing little things for yourself just because they feel good is a form of self-care. It's not a huge event, doesn't make any demands, doesn't take any time, doesn't require an extra commitment or another thing for the to-do list. It just gives permission to do little things that make you smile, even if that smile is a hidden smile that only you can see. It can be as simple as a thought. It can be simply looking at Montana's blue sky and saying, "that's what I love about Montana." It can be as simple as looking at the picture of someone you love and smiling. It can be warm sunshine. It can be feeling the warmth of a cup of tea. It's something that can be done multiple times during the day to maintain a joyful, peaceful, contented spirit. It's not an island of self-care that can only be accessed at certain times or locations, it is more like a stream of self-care that is always flowing, always accessible if we only open our eyes to it. It's very simple and is the kind of self-care that works for me. I'm glad to see it being recognized. Thank you."

A Brief Background
My spiritual journey of self-discovery began in 1987
and continues each and every day.
In 1992 my relationship with music began to expand
as questions about how music heals emerged from within me.
Listening and trusting my intuition led to the
development of pilot study research with my music.
For over 20 years I've shared
Vibrational Awareness & The Healing Power of Music
presentations with local, regional and national audiences.
In December 2010, my first of two breast cancer diagnoses
gave me an unexpected excuse to slow down
and start taking care of myself instead of always caring for others
- this is when my personal "conscious self-care" journey began
and continues each and every day.
Now I bring together 40+ years of classical and therapeutic musical training,
expertise in vibrational resonance, decades of spiritual self-discovery,
and personal experiences as a cancer patient
into a fresh and expanded perspective of self-care
that empowers participants with ways they can support themselves
- one conscious choice at a time."
