I wanted to share with you a huge "ah-ha" moment I had yesterday.  This idea touched my heart deeply and I am curious to see if anyone else has implemented it. 


Yesterday we had a Holistic Nurse come in to speak on how healing happens and self care.  It was beyond what I expected and was very moving.  One of the points she touched on is one we as instructors teach our students; grounding before session.  But she took this a step further and talked about how the massage room was "sacred ground".  Well this did make sense to me, but what I heard in my heart right after she said this was "treat your classroom as sacred".  Wow!  That idea had never crossed my mind!  I can get so wrapped up in everything I need to do, teach, & communicate that I had never bothered to even consider that.  So now I am making it a personal goal, to set my intention for each class before I enter the "sacred learning space".

But you will also put what you learn to use right in this workshop. Come prepared to write syllabi, learning objectives and lesson plans for your class, actually try out part of your presentation with your classmates, prepare a written plan for implementation of your marketing strategy, decide what level of certification is right for you, and if it is National Certification, actually begin to fill out the NCBTMB application at the end of the class. The learning you will get in this class will apply to all state agency requirements, and even other disciplines.

Effective Teaching Strategies: Connecting the Lesson to the


with Susan Salvo and Daniel Norris, PhD.


Please join Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), Susan Salvo, and Daniel Norris, PhD, for an engaging webinar on creating more active learning environments. Both educators are experts in creating effective lessons for adult learners and their philosophy is simple: the more you understand your students, the more you can develop and apply strategies to help them achieve success.

The webinar "Connecting the Lesson to the Learner" will take you behind the scenes and inside your students’ minds to examine what motivates them in the educational process. You will learn strategies regarding the adult learning model that are effective for both traditional classroom learning and distance learning. The result? Active learning environments.
