Additional Ways
to Stay Connected!

The Soul Lightening Faculty Group would like to remind everyone of the following ways to use our skills to support health, and stay connected.This is the perfect time for us to reach out to one another for connection and mutual support.

This is an extraordinary time, as as Soul Lightening practitioners, we have profoundly useful gifts to share. This is our service to the world!

Seva for Self-Care: One great way to support your health is to practice Seva on a daily basis. Remember that the Digital Media Catalogue is on our website and includes an audio recording of the Seva Stress Release for Self-Care. The Seva Stress Release is a simple 15-point acupressure formula which opens the way for balance in the body, mind, emotions and spirit. This guided meditation describes how to hold each of the points for self-care, and includes meaningful affirmations for each point. Length: 24 minutes. Price: $5.00

There is the Seva video on demand with Seva audio and photo prompts for $5.00 to recommend to clients or give as a gift.

There is also a guided Seva for Self-Care video available for $10.00 to recommend to clients or give as a gift.

Study Groups: Another great way to stay connected is to join a Soul Lightening Study Group. With so many online options now for meeting, this is an ideal time to connect with one another to do meditations, chakra tai chi, group self-care sessions, etc. Consider getting one started where you are!!

Alvina Quatrano: CA or PA Study Groups are always available upon request (3 or more people) on ZOOM or join an existing one that meets monthly. Contact Alvina to schedule | Fee: $25.00

Deanna Waggy offers monthly study groups for CA and PA certification candidates to provide accountability and support each other through the certification process.

Distance Work: In these unusual times some of our practitioners are meeting with clients via phone or video to share Soul Lightening Acupressure from a distance. Each practitioner has their own way of arranging this, but our experience has been that there is deep benefit in practicing this way. Contact a local practitioner to learn more!
