Hello and Welcome Elizabeth Powers to the 1000 Ripple Effects Book Project!
She skillfully guides her clients to discover their own vision and life purpose; to unleash their inner passion and creativity; and to design a master plan for living the life of their dreams. Elizabeth lovingly assists each client in connecting with Source, their own unique inner being (the Divinity within), and their Higher Self.
Elizabeth empowers her clients to reveal their innate truth, power, courage, and authenticity. She views each human being as a unique, valuable, and worthy child of the Universe with unlimited potential and possibilities. She calls her counseling style Empatherapy as she combines empathy and her own innate empathic abilities with a variety of modalities, tools and techniques.
Elizabeth holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in the Humanities with an emphasis on Learning Facilitation (learning how to learn). She earned an Advanced Hypnotherapy Certification from Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy, in Palo Alto, CA and was certified as a Life Mastery Facilitator by Hartmont Institute in San Francisco, CA. She is a certified Ananda Meditation Teacher and has been in the personal growth and spiritual development field for more than 25 years.
During her college years, Elizabeth completed additional courses in speech pathology and counseling psychology. She incorporates in her work, a variety of therapeutic modalities, including Hypnosis, Voice Dialogue, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Guided Visualization, Energy Healing, Meditation, Past Life Regression, EFT Meridian Tapping, Eugene Gendlin’s Focusing Techniques, Accelerated Learning, Raja Yoga and Yogic Breathing, Rebirthing Breathwork taught by Leonard Orr, and Spirit Release Work as taught by the late Irene Hickman.
For five of the eight years Elizabeth was active with the Human Awareness Institute, she served as an Intern assisting at “Love, Intimacy and Sexuality Workshops.” She also assisted with the Hartmont Institute’s experiential “Emergence Experience” workshops. By being present to the emotional and spiritual transformation of hundreds of participants from diverse ethnic origins, cultural backgrounds and gender identities, she gained profound insights into human nature that she brings to her work with individuals, couples, and groups.
Elizabeth created and presented workshops entitled “Healthful Living,” “Pursue Your Passion,” “Communicate with Confidence” and “Coming Alive in ’95.” In the 1990’s she led two hypnosis workshops for senior citizens at the San Francisco Airport Hilton at the personal invitation of California Congresswoman Jackie Speier. Elizabeth is a former member of National Speakers’ Association.
Spiritually speaking, Elizabeth has a diverse background in Eastern and Western philosophy and religion. She taught Episcopal Sunday School in her early years, studied earth based religions, and later became a Kriya Yogi. She is an avid student of New Thought including the teachings of Charles and Myrtle Filmore, Emilie Cady, Emma Curtis Hopkins, and Ernest Holmes.
In the past few years, Elizabeth has resumed her study of Tantra and actively participates in the local tantra community. It’s one of the things, including her artistic endeavors and practicing Biodanza, that helps to keep her feeling younger than her years. She loves to learn something new every day and is currently expanding her knowledge of Ericksonian Hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
Elizabeth is available for private sessions, classes, workshops on a variety of topics related to personal and spiritual growth. She currently sees clients online via Skype/ooVoo and can arrange to see clients locally. Although she prefers to be able to see her clients via video, she is willing to do phone sessions for those who are unable to access the live video internet options. If you have questions or need more information, please feel free to contact Elizabeth.
I am going to blog and document the journey of creating 1000 Ripple Effects across the world.
