Overview

Essential oils are precious substances that are the concentrated DNA of the plant. As the DNA of the plant they also resonate with the DNA in our bodies, allowing us to use them to nourish ourselves in powerful ways. We’ll take a look at essential oils made from seeds, roots, branches and flowers as we explore how you can engage the essence in your body for nourishing, healing and evolution. Each special plant part offers unique functions that support our bodies, hearts and minds in novel ways, inviting you into a deeper relationship with nature while nurturing yourself. When you nourish the essence you strengthen your foundation, creating security and stability while fostering creativity and inspiration. You’ll get some basics for working with the oils while learning about oils such as Caraway Seed, Carrot Seed, Jasmine, Neroli, Cedarwood and Vetiver. We’ll also take a look at some Chinese herbal medicinal essential oils such as Bai Zi Ren, Bai Zhi, Wu Wei Zi and Dang Gui. You’ll be able to use these oils right away for yourself, your family and your clients to nourish from the roots right to the tips of the branches, from seed to blossom!

Overview

In California, legislation was passed in 2016 to require all small businesses with 5 or more employees to offer a retirement plan by June 30th 2022. The mandate is rolled out over a 3 year period starting with employers of 100+ employees to offer a plan as of September 30th, 2020. The state provided plan is called "Calsavers". While this state plan costs the employer nothing, the funds within the plan bear a cost and the administration of the state plan comes with significant administrative effort. This seminar will review the Calsavers deadlines and how employee count is calculated, a description of the plan, pro's and con's, then a comparison of the state plan to a traditional 401k plan with associated costs.

Event Host


Overview

Classical Five-Element Acupuncture: Beginning the Journey™ has been presented as an in-person live event for decades. Many participants have described it as the best continuing education seminar they have ever attended. They learned new and deeper dimensions of treatment - how to free energetically blocked patients and reach the mental, emotional, and spiritual levels of disease. Now, you are invited to share in this profound two-day experience in a live online format. Most practitioners recognize that there is much more to understanding and treating patients than categorizing them according to symptoms and syndromes. How, then, do you heal the emotions, mind, and spirit, as well as the body, with acupuncture? Knowing the "spirits of the points" avails you little unless you know exactly how and when to use them and how to conjoin them with the underlying imbalance. Classical Five-Element Acupuncture, in the Worsley tradition, is one of the most complete, comprehensive, and far-reaching systems of medicine in the world. There are no shortcuts or magic formulas. You will not be able to fully practice this system after one weekend, but you will learn to identify and resolve potentially life-threatening energetic blocks, any of which, until removed, will hinder or prevent your patient from getting well. You will learn to develop and use your senses, pulse taking, and rapport skills as powerful diagnostic tools, and you will come to understand and manage your patients in a whole new way.

Event Host


Overview

The trademark process is made up of three stages: clearance, prosecution, and enforcement. While a qualified and experienced trademark attorney is the best bet to deal with these three stages, there are things that every business owner can and should do to protect their trademark. This class will identify tips and tricks for each stage of the trademark process. Clearance: This involves searching to see if the trademark you want to use is free for registration and use. Prosecution: Once a search is conducted and the risks are acceptable to the business owner, it is time to file or prosecute the application. Enforcement: Once you register your trademark, you have to enforce your rights. This is a classic "use it or lose it" situation.
