Chi Aura Integration - Level I

 

Chi-Aura Integration is a complementary alternative healing method using the vital life force. Chi-Aura is a set of skills used to read the health of the body and facilitate healing and balance. This method can be used by individuals for self-healing or by the practitioner in relationship with their patients. By learning how to relax into a state of mind that is able to "read" the energy field of the body and to work hands-on with the out -of-balance conditions which lead to illness, the nurse to patient relationship can be greatly enhanced by incorporating these skills.

This 2-day workshop will teach techniques that will elicit the relaxation response and help develop the "Awakened Mind State". You will learn to perform the specific Chi-Aura Integration hand positions learning specific acupoints, energy centers and parts of the body to release muscle tension and induce the relaxation response to promote healing. Chi-Aura Integration is relevant to nursing because it develops the nurse's ability to improve their effectiveness in treating clients.

This course is approved for 18 CEU's for Nurses, 14 CEU's for massage therapists, and 15 CEH's for acupuncturists. A free downloadable manual is available to registered students before class.

Financial Planning for Elder Care and End of Life Costs

Am I responsible to pay for my parents’ medical and health care bills if they can’t afford them?

Studies show that most people don’t think ahead to end of life care and costs. Those unfunded costs can have a disastrous outcome for families, and— financial planning isn’t all about money. A Financial Planner will lay out a sample plan for two fictional families, illustrating key tools for preparing for the future. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of specialists in Long Term Care Insurance and Reverse Mortgages. An Elder Law and Estate Attorney will discuss conservatorship and Medicaid funding for nursing home care. Our Family Meeting Facilitator will share tips on having family meetings to make these important decisions.

Peaceful Estate Settlement

For a variety of reasons, families often experience splintered relationships when parents have passed away and their assets (no matter how small) are distributed (or not). Family member/ trustees often do not have the relationship skills to navigate the murky waters of grief, sibling jealousy, or unfair outcomes presented in their parent’s wills.

A Professional Fiduciary will address requirements for settling an estate. We will provide insight into benefits and costs of having an outside trustee handle management and closure of the estate. We will also discuss special needs trusts for a disabled child and answer the question:”What is a trust protector?”
