Our theme this month ~
Let Go!
Hasn't the weather been wonderful this past week?  I love these cool and sunny mornings.  You can literally feel that change is in the air!   Soon the leaves will be turning and the fall season will be upon us.  Just as the trees let go of their leaves, sometimes it's important for us to let go of patterns that no longer serve us.  That's our theme this month - "LET GO."  Use the symbolism of the fall season to contemplate patterns, ideas or thoughts that no longer serve you.  Make a conscious effort to shift those patterns to healthier habits.  See our Health Tip this month to find out more ways that you can "LET GO" of unhealthy practices and choose healthy patterns instead to transform your mind, body and Spirit.

Last week, we had a wonderful evening with Richard Rowland, author of Unspoken Messages, here at IIM.  Everyone gathered experienced his inspiring stories and presence, and left feeling enriched.  Thanks to those of you who were able to join us. 

Yvonne McCoy is our "Practitioner of the Month."  What a gifted healer she is!  She is an ordained minister, certified Integrative Chaplain and specializes in Healing Touch therapy.  She incorporates a wide variety of healing modalities into her healing sessions including (but not limited to) music therapy, aromatherapy and Intercessory prayer.  Do yourself a favor and let her help you transform your health of mind, body and Spirit.  You won't be the same and you'll be so glad you did it!

We are very excited to welcome a new practitioner to our office - Dr. Peter Buecker!  He is an orthopedic surgeon who quickly recognized that orthopedic surgeries/procedures are just one aspect of true healing.  He is currently completing a Ph.D. in Mind-Body medicine.
Check out his website:  www.MeditationMd.com.
He currently leads a meditation group on Friday nights.  Watch future newsletters to see when his meditations will be offered here at our 205 Townepark Circle location.

Enjoy this beautiful beginning of fall!

In Memory of Dr. Wayne Dyer

" We are very saddened by the transition of our teacher and mentor, Dr. Wayne Dyer.  He inspired many of us through his lectures, books, CD's, movie, TV and radio shows!  He was tireless in teaching and spreading love and light.
I know he will continue his work in a broader spectrum on the other side.  Our humanness will miss this man!  We love you Wayne!" ~ Kim Evans

"Let Go!"
"Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness.  If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - anger, anxiety, or possessions - we cannot be free."

AIT Training!

Coming later this fall...


Join Cynthia Bowling, LCSW
Advanced Integrative Therapy - Certified Therapist & Teacher
for the AIT Basics Seminar

a 3-Day Seminar for Graduate Level Mental Health Clinicians  and Graduate Students who are currently in a supervised clinical placement.

This 3-Day Seminar is a prerequisite for all other AIT Semiars.  AIT BASICS provides everything you need to know to begin using AIT in your practice immediately.  Call Cynthia with questions, or for more information. 502.553.9843


Advanced Integrative Therapy or AIT, is a dynamic and new in-depth energy psychology that begins from the premise that ALL upsetting events are traumas and are lodged within the body, mind and spirit.  Talking gives us insight into our issues, but often does too little to remove them.  AIT removes the energy within us that is made up of our particular responses to the incidents and patterns that hurt or upset us throughout our lives.  The healing is gentle, effective and complete... promoting psychological, physical and spiritual healing by treating not just the symptoms, but the originating causes of present day difficulties that fracture human wholeness.

AIT integrates the best established and proven psychotherapies, and then adds a new energy psychology element that is body-based.  This simply and gently addresses and clears those aspects of the issue in the body, mind, and spirit.  In this way, the issue gets completely resolved!

Incorporate AIT into your therapeutic practice!

Experience the HAKOMI Method:
Saturday & Sunday, October 17th & 18th, 2015


An Introduction to the HAKOMI Method...
combining the Eastern traditions of mindfulness and non-violence with a unique, highly effective methodology for personal growth and self-study.

Saturday, October 17th ~ 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Sunday, October 18th ~ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

A workshop for psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, health care workers, healing arts practitioners, and students in these fields, and individuals seeking to experience the Hakomi Method.  ( 12 NASW and NBCC CEs, 13.2 Nursing contact hours through the Institute for Integrative Medicine, an approved provider through the KY Board of Nursing)

The Hakomi Method combines the Eastern traditions of mindfulness and non-violence with a unique, highly effective methodology for personal growth and self-study.

Hakomi is mindful, experiential body-centered psychotherapy.  The body's structures and habitual patterns become a powerful doorway to unconscious core material, including the hidden core beliefs that shape our lives, relationships, and self-images.

By working with direct experience, the Hakomi Method quickly accesses this core material, allowing it to emerge safely into consciousness.  Once conscious, it can be re-evaluated, and where appropriate, powerfully transformed.  New dimensions of awareness can be integrated, helping the individual to build a more satisfying and effective life.

Faculty:  Gregory Gaiser,
PC, Hakomi Trainer/Matrix Leadership Senior Trainer
Gregory is a Hakomi veteran of over 30 years.  Originally trained as a bodyworker, Gregory has taught traditional Hakomi in the U.S., Europe, Canada and New Zealand since the early 1990's.  More recently he brought this approach to Japan.  In addition to Hakomi, his educational background includes a variety of modalities, including Buddhist meditation, EMDR and Somatic Experiencing.  His true passion is assisting people to live embodied, purposeful and spiritually connected lives.  He currently resides in Austin, Texas with his two dogs, Rex and Zara.

Experience the Hakomi Method ~
Location:  Center for Educational Therapy, 1230 Liberty Lane, Suite 210, Louisville, KY 40222

BONUS!  Daniel Lally is offering 6 free Hakomi sessions to KHNA members prior to the workshop.  To reserve your session, call Daniel Lally at 502.767.9976.
