Your hijacked brain needs help! Come put the power of active emotional well-being in your own hands with the technique that’s considered “CPR for Your Amygdala”.

Join Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioner Hilary Russo as your guide during an hour-long experience where you’ll learn how to rapidly self-regulate and self-soothe for self-care. 

What is Havening?

Havening is a neuroscientist-based approach that changes the landscape of the brain by using touch and pleasant distractions to alter your thoughts, moods, behaviors, and habits rapidly and permanently. Your brain enters a nurturing Delta Wave or “sleep state” and releases the “happy hormones”: oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine, and GABA . Havening is effective for everyday upsets to deep-rooted traumas, including feelings associated with stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, focus, sleep, post-traumatic stress, fears, grief, and more.  

This session will include:

  • An Introduction to Havening Techniques®
  • A guided Self-Havening experience with Hilary
  • Group Discussion: Time for questions and answers.

You’ll leave feeling confident, clear-minded, and calm. But most of all, you’ll walk away self-empowered with tools to heal from within and to be kind to the mind.
