Sylvia D’Andrea Offers Energy Workshop in White Plains on September 23, 2012

Sylvia D’Andrea

The Divine Compassion Spirituality Center in White Plains, NY, will host a one-day workshop, “Exploring the Power of Your Energy Anatomy,” on September 23 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Facilitator Sylvia D’Andrea says she will teach attendees how to work with their personal energy as an alternate way to access their creativity in daily life.

“When we pursue each day with a personal energy road map, we have the ability to create a life filled with our best and highest intentions for joy, peace, abundance, hope, relationships—whatever we wish to create. Getting in touch with that energy is what this workshop is about,” she says. “We’ll take a look at our personal energy through the concept of quantum physics, what scientific research and other recent testing has uncovered that supports the concept of a personal energy anatomy, along with tools we can use to strengthen it.”

Sylvia D’Andrea is an accredited EMF Balancing Technique practitioner, a certified Tama-Do practitioner and a Tao Yin Fa-Chi Kung instructor. Her practice is in Ramsey, New Jersey, and she also offers workshops in Fair Lawn, New Jersey.
