I would like to introduce myself and my workshop Unspoken Boundaries┬«. My name is Merle Yost and am a lifetime member of CAMFT and have been licensed for 26 years. I am a graduate of the San Francisco Gestalt Institute and trained by Francine Shapiro in EMDR and an EMDR Approved Consultant. Combining these with extensive training in Energy Psychology, I have created Unspoken Boundaries┬« which is a deep dive into energetic boundaries. Personally, and professionally, we have intimate contact with so many people, and without the tools and awareness of energetic boundaries, we can give too much of our selves away. While merging our energy with people is common, it is not healthy for us or the other person. It means that we intrude on them and we absorb their energy, both positive and negative. This is not useful to either party, and it can leave us exhausted and depleted at the end of the day or week. There is a better way, that is healthier and healing for everyone.    (Ad expires:  Monday, October 4th 2021)
