Everyone has their own personal mental health journey. Thankfully, great strides have been made to lessen the stigma associated with mental health. This is particularly important in light of the massive mental health crisis left in the pandemic’s wake. Day drinking and drug use, abuse and overdosing became rampant. Suicide rates have escalated. Fear and insecurity have increased. To boot, the legal profession already had its own issues with high rates of depression, burnout, stress and overwhelm. In fact, many AmLaw firms now have dedicated staff specifically for enhancing employee wellness.
You are likely familiar with the typical wellness options: therapy, coaching, massage, exercise, meditation and mindfulness apps. There's another powerful tool to include in that arsenal - energy healing.
Historically disparaged as woo woo nonsense and while spiritual in nature, energy healing has been gaining more general acceptance. For those who resonate with this type of work or are open to trying something new, this just may be the best kept secret for wellness and performance!
There are numerous types of energy healing modalities. The most commonly known modality, Reiki, is used in hospitals for burnout, pain management and recovery from illness/surgery. and in addiction rehab facilities. In this session, on Wednesday June 14, we'll discuss what energy healing is, how it can support your wellbeing and for those interested, the opportunity to experience it for yourself!
Our presenter, Wendy Axelrod, is an Empowerment Coach & Energy Practitioner; she's also a lawyer who has worked in several AmLaw firm eDiscovery departments. She'll lead attendees through a guided meditation and run some energies specifically focused on stress reduction and relaxation. This is an in person meeting that will also be accessible via Webex.
Based in NYC, Wendy Axelrod helps high performing professionals and entrepreneurs envision and take action to create the careers, businesses, lives and relationships they desire. Wendy combines energy healing and coaching modalities to help clients achieve life-changing results much faster than on their own.
You are encouraged to submit questions in advance, during and after the presentation.

Additionally, as one part of the session is a guided meditation, it is asked that you do not drive or bike during that portion of the presentation.
