Before she found SWIHA, Sarah Peters a young woman, working a stressful job in a medical office – She was sick, overweight, and lost. “I was just starting to expand my health knowledge and learning how to self-heal. As I was searching for photography schools online, I 'accidentally' stumbled upon SWIHA,” shared Sarah. After 'stumbling' onto SWIHA’s website, Sarah enrolled into the Mind/Body Transformational Psychology program, specializing in hypnotherapy, Reiki, Life Coaching and yoga. Sarah became fascinated with almost every subject in her program: “I love the psychology of the mind; I love having deep conversations with people and I have always been sensitive to energies – other people’s energy as well as mine! It was so amazing to find a program that connected everything together for me – mind, body, energy and coaching!”
Sarah is currently transitioning into a Sound/Energy Healer and Yoga Teacher position at Knead Me Wellness in North Phoenix – a move she’s very excited about. She’ll begin taking clients there in March 2016, where she’ll share her wide array of gifts, including Reiki, Hypnotherapy, Coaching, Sound Healing and private yoga instruction.
Her sessions are customized to the client’s personal goals and challenges. “Sessions are an average of 90 minutes in length and involve a combination of healing energy work, coaching and education. This process allows for the client to begin to break free of subconscious patterns and behaviors and learn techniques to continue the process once the sessions are complete,” Sarah explained.
She generally works with women because, being a woman herself, she has a better understanding of their needs. Sarah went on to say that she generally attracts a demographic looking to ease anxiety and heal past traumas: “I am told that I provide an environment to fully support the emotional, spiritual and physical bodies.”
When asked how SWIHA has changed her perspective of self, Sarah declared how she’s a completely changed person from three years ago! “I’m only 25 and I feel like I have the wisdom of my elders. My personal and professional relationships have either been removed or changed for the better. I feel humbled, wise and fully prepared for any interactions I find myself in, whether that is energetically or professionally.”
So, what were some of the biggest lessons she learned at SWIHA, as well as any lessons she has for future graduates?
“I realized the magnitude of how much we project ourselves onto everything and person around us. I learned that journaling and meditating are the keys to physical, personal and professional success. Also, I learned that every time I thought I had all the answers, I didn’t. Don’t force anything; put yourself out there; make an effort. It’s very clear when the timing is right for any venture… yet it’s ok to check your horoscope. In all of the courses I’ve taken at SWIHA, the most valuable lesson I learned was how to ‘hold space’ for my clients and myself. This was taught to me in various ways and helped me gain a true understanding of how I must find my own way to relate to and serve others.”
In closing, Sarah left us with these words of wisdom: “Leave your ego at the door and follow the flow.” Sarah may be found at kneadmewellness.com
