Inaugural Touch for Health 5-Elements Metaphors Class

During the weekend of November 4th and 5th, 12 Touch for Health students participated in the Okanagan’s first Touch for Health 5-Elements Metaphors class.  Touch for Health Instructor Holly Berezowski hosted the class at Happily Holistic and had this to say in a follow-up email with participants:

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for such a great weekend!  You were such a fantastic class and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the class.
Today at work I found the metaphors flying fast and furious.  I hope you are seeing the same thing in your lives.” – Holly

I attended the class myself with a great mix of people.  We worked in groups to come up with metaphors and delve further into the 5-Element Metaphors and what they meant to us.  At the end of each day, we did balances on each other and saw profound results within the class.  There were so many laughs, smiles and tears in this class that I get choked up as I write this post.

The course to me felt like a “2 for the price of 1”.  Not only did we learn new methods to take our Touch for Health balances deeper, we also had the added benefit of the balances we did on each other as part of the course.

Although we have not officially announced a date for the next Touch for Health 5-Element Metaphors Class, you can email or phone the office to have yourself added to the class list for Spring 2013.

Warning: website sawdust ahead!

For the past six weeks, I have been working on migrating the website over to a content management system, adding a blog, search engine optimizing web content, implementing web standards, re-organizing pages into a proper taxonomy, implementing a database, making the website more social and….

A content management what?  Sorry, I see the eyes are glazing over.  Jake, you are no longer working (primarily) as a technodorkmegageek!

In other words, because the website will be easier to manage, you will find fresher content with a more consistent look and hopefully, you will find what you are looking for easier.

Late last night, in the wee hours of the morning, I flipped the switch over to the new Happily Holistic Health and Wellness website.  This morning, as the dust is still settling and I try to coax my body awake with a large coffee, I am trying to ensure everything is working as intended.  We will continue to add new content and tweak the information within its pages as the dust continues to settle.

In the meantime, although cosmetically the site should still look relatively similar to what you are used to, you will notice a few new features, more consistency in the content and hopefully information organized in a more logical manner.  You will also find within our page:

  • a working contact us form
  • class register (but not pay) online for courses and workshops
  • links to upcoming courses at the bottom of each of the classroom pages
  • Touch for Health Classes, Kelowna
  • practitioner profiles complete with their list of services
  • services with more information and practitioners lists
  • and me officially listed as a practitioner!

If you come across any glitches, have any feedback or are looking for more features to be added to the website, feel free to comment below, phone or email the office!

Enjoy the new website!
