<![CDATA[Happy New Year!  Looking back, Looking forward...]]>Wed, 16 Dec 2015 19:35:35 GMThttp://swahab.org/blog/happy-new-year-looking-back-looking-forwardOur first meeting of the year will be held on January 6, 2016, between 6:00 and 7:30PM at  NASW Chapter Office, 50 Broadway, NY, NY Suite 1001.

Our guest speaker is Marge Piatak, Tellington T-Touch Practitioner who is returning by popular demand to continue the presentation she gave in November.  

Tellington T-Touch is a specialized approach to the care and training of animals.  It is based on circular movements
of the fingers and hands all over the body. The intent of the TTouch is to activate the function of the cells and awaken cellular intelligence - a little like "turning on the electric lights of the body."

If you were with us in November, and have some questions or want some additional input,then get out your notes and ask away.  If you weren't able to join us in November, don't worry.  Marge plans to recap a bit and move on from there to present some aspects of the work that we didn't explore in depth at the earlier presentation.  Please feel free to submit questions beforehand, but there will also be time for spontaneous questions and discussion.

Please use the form below to let us know that you'll be there and to submit a question, if you have one now.
