Ebb and Flow Workshop Explores Primal RhythmsJoin Rae Higgins, sex educator, and outdoor educator Cristina Schooler of The Rooted Method, for Ebb and Flow: Honoring Your Primal Cycles and Rhythms, from 10 a.m. to noon, March 16, at Soma Vida in Austin.
Participants will learn how to be more in tune with their bodies, including understanding menstrual cycles, tracking cycles, the sacred feminine, primal rhythms throughout the seasons, setting rituals, breath work and non-toxic menstrual health. Understanding how to track one’s menstrual cycle can lead to a life of intention, clarity and rhythm.

Polarity Therapy Training by Local PractitionerBoard Certified Polarity Practitioner Heather Joyce Wolfe, RN, BCPP, will offer polarity therapy training to those wishing to become an Associate Polarity Practitioner.
According to Wolfe, polarity therapy can be integrated very effectively into other forms of body/energy work including massage, shiatsu and reiki.
“Many practitioners have reported that polarity therapy has provided the ‘missing link’ and enabled them to integrate the many aspects of the healing arts,” she says.
Wolfe trained as a nurse in Ireland, her native country, and has had a private healing practice for many years after training in Therapeutic Touch and polarity therapy, amongst other modalities. She has taught polarity therapy to American Standards both in Ireland and America, and looks forward to bringing this to Austin, where she has lived for the past two years to be near her two children and grandchild.
Wolfe will lead a special women's circle on International Women’s Day, March 8 – see calendar for details. For more information, email [email protected] or visit BackToSource.com for updated course events, and PolarityTherapy.org for information about polarity therapy.
