Zoom Event!  How To Heal Yourself From Depression: Releasing Emotional Baggage

Amy B. Scher, Thursday, March 4, 12-1:30 Pacific Time, $10 

Even as modern medicine continues to advance, the issue of depression is worsening. Based on a trend of studies, our current paradigm of looking for chemical, biological, or behavioral glitches doesn’t offer all the answers. Amy B. Scher, expert in mind-body-spirit healing, offers an entirely new way of looking at — and addressing — depression, which she describes as "the literal depression of self."

In this experiential workshop, Amy will cover:

  • What depression really is and the sneaky/subtle ways it shows up

  • Why common depression treatments don’t work for everyone

  • A guided group energy therapy session to help participants release stuck emotions and outdated beliefs such as "I don't matter" and "I'm unable to heal"

Participants will leave feeling more hopeful, relaxed, and with tools to help themselves, even if no one else can.

Amy B. Scher is the author of How to Heal Yourself From Depression When No One Else Can and three previous books. As an energy therapist, she helps people become their happiest, healthiest selves.
