Shownotes:

[00:00:03.050] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Good morning. And welcome to Green Tea Conversations, the radio show that delves into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine. To bring you the local experts who share their progressive ideas and the latest information and insights needed so you can lead your best life. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle, publisher, the Twin Cities edition of Natural Awakenings magazine. And I'm honored to bring these experts to you today. In our studio, we have a plethora of guest with us today. We're doing something a little different this week in that I usually only interview one or two people at a time.
 
[00:00:37.420] 
And today we have in our Studios four people. And the reason that we do is because we have a great event coming up on November 9 called Your Shining Life Expo. And I want to say Life not light, so people understand what it is. And in the next three shows that we do, so today shows and the subsequent two that are coming up, I'm going to be introducing everyone to some of our vendors. And these are our vendors who are also going to be doing workshops during the event.
 
[00:01:09.480] 
And I want our audience to be able to really have the opportunity to learn about our vendors, to learn about the workshops that are coming up and to see how that might fit into their life. We're also doing something very new today, which is my very first Facebook Live event. So I'm going to ask my guess, let's look at the camera and wave at all of our friends on Facebook Live. We're really glad that we can be with you today that way. Yes, it's there. The camera is right up there.

[00:01:37.180] 
So today in our Studios, we have as our guest, Jeanne Lecher of the Soul Body Network, Gina Citoli of Gina Citoli. And we'll explain more about that than just a bit. We also have Amy Vasterling of Intuitive Pathfinder and SchaOn Blodgett of Psinergy Natural Health and Holistic Wellness. Thank you all for being with us today. I'm really glad that you can be with us. So what I'd like to do is to first off, start off by learning a little bit about each of you and what it is that you do.
 
[00:02:11.070] 
And I think I'm going to start with Jeanne Jeanne, if you could introduce us to your business, tell us about your business and what it is that you do, and then we'll go into what you'll be doing at the Expo. Okay.

[00:02:24.770] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
Thank you. So my business, the name is Soul Body Network. And what I actually do, I work with individuals and groups, and I work with Soul Body Alchemy. So I work with the energy of their system. We work with bringing through the safety and security in their body mind and in their life so that they can live their life more confidently and own their own authority and to really live their life in the style that they they want to live their life. And oftentimes what happens is fears get in the way of that. And so we work through the fears in four different ways.
 
[00:03:12.170] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Can you give us an idea what those four different ways might be?
 
[00:03:15.690] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
I sure can. So the first would be deep dialogue. We work through conversation and working in deep dialogue to bring up those truths that are hidden underneath the fears. And then we work through the energy reading. We read the energies. We look at where those energies are at in their system by seeing sometimes it's color, sometimes it's healing, sometimes it's sensation. And then I work with the energy healing. So that's about balancing and bringing their system into alignment and to this new knowledge and information that comes through as we work through the fear.
 
[00:03:56.930] 
And then from there it goes into and the last one is very anyway, then the other component I have is massage. So if somebody wants to go even deeper into the cellular structure of that, then we work on the sale in the body.
 
[00:04:17.560] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Oh, my goodness. So now you're going to be at your Shining Life Expo?
 
[00:04:21.780] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
Yes, I am.
 
[00:04:22.680] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And you have a booth there. And so I just want to let our listeners know that the Shining Life Expo, which is again on Saturday, November 9. It starts at 930 and goes until 04:00. It's absolutely free, so everyone can come in. And then different exhibitors either have free or low-cost services that they're providing. And then all of the workshops that we're providing or that you're providing to our guests will also be free. So sometimes people have services that they do charge a small amount for.

[00:04:58.980] 
But it's a great way for people to come in and get a taste of what it is that each of you do and also be able to see how they might be able to work with you more fully in the future. So, Jeanne, tell me a little bit for somebody who's coming into the Expo, what would they experience when they come up to your booth?
 
[00:05:17.850] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
So I will be offering sessions that we will go into a bit of a deep dialogue to bring through whatever it is that they're working on, whatever issue is coming up in their life. And we'll work with the energy, reading the energy and that comes through and asking them questions to draw out even deeper, to go even deeper into that. And then we will do a balancing and energy healing or balancing of their system. So that the new information and energy that comes through in the conversation and the reading then gets integrated into their system.
 
[00:05:56.640] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So do you find that people don't maybe understand what the fear is that they're having? How is the fear generally exhibited in people?
 
[00:06:07.540] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
So many times? It comes up as pain, as stress, as confusion, as anxiety. It can be just even a drama or a trauma in their life that just keeps repeating itself. And so we talk about that first to bring that up and out, and then we go even deeper. We go right to the root to the cause of that, which is what needs to be. And we don't mince words. We go right to that root cause and really get to that first, because if we don't, then it just inludes itself.
 
[00:06:46.220] 
So we go right to the court and work with that and then bring it through and integrate the wisdom and the information and the truth. It's their own truth, and it's their own wisdom that comes through that and integrate that then in their system.
 
[00:07:01.280] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So how long do you think those sessions will be when people come in?
 
[00:07:05.540] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
Well, because it is three of those different things, it'll be half-hour session.
 
[00:07:11.110] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Wow. Yeah. That's a nice opportunity to really be able to get some good work done.
 
[00:07:17.240] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
Exactly.
 
[00:07:18.520] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Now you're also going to be doing a workshop.
 
[00:07:20.890] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
And the title of your workshop is owning your own integrity and embodying style of your life.
 
[00:07:28.290] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. And what is the workshop? So can you tell us about it?
 
[00:07:33.480] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
So it's going to be the same thing, pretty much the same thing we'll be doing within the group. And so it's to invite you to come and work through your own. We'll choose one a year, something that's going on, and oftentimes I can read the whole group and what might be the pertinent component within the group, and we'll work with that. So it's about coming, showing up, being present, being willing to go to the deeper spaces and places and be able to go back one more confident in your life, have more purpose, have direction in your life as you leave the space.
 
[00:08:26.380] - Candi Broeffle, Host
It's always so interesting to me what type of workshops that we have that are presented. It really runs the gamut. And people will see as we're doing these in interviews over the next three weeks this week and the next two just kind of how diverse the topics are. And it really kind of makes me a little sad that I don't get to take part in it as much as I would love to as running around putting out fires.
 
[00:08:51.770] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
Sure.
 
[00:08:53.800] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So, Jeanne, tell our listeners where they can find you. So if they were interested in reaching out to you after the show today, where could they find you?
 
[00:09:05.320] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
So they go to my website, which is JeanneLecher.com, or they can contact me through email, which would be [email protected] Lecher.Com. And that's okay.

[00:09:17.880] - Candi Broeffle, Host
You're going to have to spell your name. Jeanne Lecher is
 
[00:09:21.680] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
J-E-A-N-N-E Lecher is L-E-C-H-E-R.
 
[00:09:28.930] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So JeanneLecher.com. And then they can get your other contact information from there.
 
[00:09:34.010] - Jeanne Lecher, Guest
Correct. Good.
 
[00:09:35.120] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Well, thank you. And we'll be coming back. So we'll have more of a conversation as we go on, but we want to introduce everyone today. So we have a couple of minutes left in this section. And so, Gina, I'm going to ask you to introduce yourself to our listeners. Gina Citoli of Gina Citoli.
 
[00:09:52.580] - Gina Citoli, Guest
Well, my name is Gina Citoli and actually, in case you didn't get it.
 
[00:09:57.060] - Gina Citoli, Guest
The little tagline that goes with this that is beyond entertainment into the extraordinary. That's what I do. I take people beyond entertainment into the extraordinary. I have four one-woman shows, and they each take people to different levels of being, consciousness, awareness. They're fun, they're entertaining. I have combined the performance arts with the healing arts so that I've had people come to shows that have actual healings that take place. I've had people just have a lot of different kinds of experiences. But my intention is also to support people like Jeanne and other healers.
 
[00:10:35.580] 
The work that somebody's doing with say they're doing sessions with Jeanne, for instance, or SchaOn or Amy. And they want some kind of entertainment rather than the norm of what we have that reinforces the healing method so that they're hearing the same things in different ways. And then by using music and humor and interaction with the audience and the whole thing, they're musicals, and it brings different dynamics in, I guess, is the best way to put it.
 
[00:11:09.490] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And when we come back, I have so many questions for you about this. When we come back, we're going to be going in a little deeper with you on that. But for our listeners who want to learn more about Your Shining Life Expo or to register for the event, you can visit your ShiningLifeExpo.Com. You can also see the entire program in our November issue of Natural Awakenings. So beginning November 1, you can pick up the magazine at a location near you or visit NaturalTwinCities.com for the online edition, you can find a podcast of this show on AM950Radio.com on Apple and Google Podcasts. And anywhere you get your podcast, you're listening to Green Tea Conversations on AM950, the Progressive Voice of Minnesota. And we will be right back.
 
[00:12:02.370] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talk to the professionals who share their expertise on natural health with you. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle. And today we're talking with a group of our vendors from Your Shining Life Expo, which is again on Saturday, November 9. And it is at the DoubleTree by Hilton, which is in Roseville.
 
[00:12:27.610] 
So it's just north of St Paul. It's in a beautiful location and really gives people an opportunity to come in and relax and renew and connect in a much deeper way. Today, our guests that we have with us are Amy Vasterling, Gina Citoli, Jeanne Lecher, and SchaOn Blodgett. And just before the break, we were starting to talk with Gina about her business and what it is that she does. And I do have a lot of questions for you, but I also want our listeners to know that I have actually seen your show.
 
[00:13:01.510] 
I've seen The Cavalry of Consciousness, which is just remarkable. It is entertaining. It is. I just got lost in it. My son always says to me, oh, mom, you're so easy to entertain because I'm just, like, entertain me entertaining. But not only that, but I learned so much, too. It's just a really great way to a great medium in order to share a message that makes it really easy for people to understand. And I think that's really what
 
[00:13:34.480] - Gina Citoli, Guest
that was my goal was. Because I had worked in a healing school. I don't know if any of you remember Susan Camp. She was around in the early 2000s, and I was her assistant for a while, and she healed herself from a lot of autoimmune diseases. And I learned a great deal being her assistant. And this was a time when the science was really coming in. And Greg Braid and all these people were coming on the scene. And the only way I ever knew all this, I'd better. Reader, Tarot Reader, I knew metaphysics.
 
[00:14:03.370] 
I knew it from that standpoint. And all my stuff tended to be very metaphysical. And I wanted to find a way to reach the general public. And so when I worked in the healing school and science started giving us the language, she used music. In fact, I sang in her workshops. She used storytelling. And when she gave the school up, I thought, well, Gee, this is something that needs to move on. I thought, how can I do this? And then I realized I'm going to take my background in music, theater, dance, healing, because, I mean, I'm a Reiki healer.
 
[00:14:37.760] 
I'm an herbalist. I've learned several modalities from Susan and put them all together. And I wrote The Cavalry of Consciousness was my first one. And then my second one is called The Magic. And each show goes in a little deeper direction. They're not exactly sequels, but they kind of are. There are different characters, but yet they go from one thing to the next.
 
[00:15:01.470] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so during your Shining Life Expo, you're actually going to be doing a performance.
 
[00:15:07.920] - Gina Citoli, Guest
Yes.
 
[00:15:08.760] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So instead of having a workshop, so much, this will be a performance that you'll be doing. And what are you going to be sharing with people?
 

[00:15:17.610] - Gina Citoli, Guest
I'm going to do what I would say, like Vignette, that's a short scene from each one of my three musicals. That one isn't really relevant to the healing. It is, and it isn't. But the three that are relevant to the more healing market, I guess, is the best way to put it, and the more consciousness market. And so I'm going to do probably ten minutes from each one, and then I'm going to have also a conversation with the audience. As far as they can ask me, what makes this different?
 
[00:15:54.060] 
What is in this that makes it different. And there's a lot of things you can go on my website and see all the research I've done and put into the shows themselves. As far as using things like rhyme, Mama Earth loses a lot of rhyme. And because people it absorbs differently. That's why song lyrics stick in your head. So I've taken you know, Mom Earth will just all of a sudden go talking in rhyme. And because when she does that, it's usually pertinent information. And so it's easier to retain.
 
[00:16:27.040] 
And there's been a lot of studies on what the difference of live performance and media is and how it affects people differently. So I'm very adamant about live performance because it's a different kind of interaction. There's just all sorts of things that have been put into it. Laughter is a big thing.
 
[00:16:48.540] - Candi Broeffle, Host
That's what I was just going to say. I'm excited for you to have this at the Expo, and I was so excited to be able to share this with people because they can come into the Expo. They can do the healing. They can learn a lot. They can be entertained and laugh and just it's such a magical day, I think. SchaOn, you were with us last year. And, of course, you're a big part of it, because with natural awakenings as well as having your own business.
 
[00:17:19.380] - Gina Citoli, Guest
Okay.
 
[00:17:20.090] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So he did a lot of our interviews last year for Facebook and talking to vendors, and it's it's such a magical day. And then to be able to have this addition, having you here to do people coming in and being able to have an entertainment part of it as well is just entertaining and learning and healing all at the same time. So it's very cool. Now you also have a booth.
 
[00:17:47.960] - Gina Citoli, Guest
Right.
 
[00:17:48.380] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so for people who want to come to the booth and talk to you, can they experience when they come up?
 
[00:17:54.160] - Gina Citoli, Guest
Well, they could experience I'll have information on all the different presentations because I even take these shows to people's homes. Oh, yeah. And I I just it's a whole show you get in your home. I've done them in people's backyards and their living rooms and everything else. It's been a really interesting experience with it. So there'll be different ways people can bring this to their communities, but particularly the cabaret, because it's a great starting place for a community to get basic well, you've seen that if they're step by step process, and so they can get that information and build on it in a community, so they'll have all that information will be there.
 
[00:18:36.370] 
I'm going to offer that day only I have a cabaret show coming up on the 27 October, but this is going to be after this. There's another one on the 24 November. And so what I'm going to do for that day only, anybody that purchases tickets at the Expo will get two for one. So you can it ticket and bring a friend, but they have to purchase them at the event and that day, because that's that's why the special. And I also do readings, but I'm not going to be doing them at that day, but I'm going to have Coupons so that if they want a reading, they can get the discount and pay for it, and then schedule one with me here one of the places I work out of.
 
[00:19:18.120] 
So I'll have that there and generally information and we'll talk. I might have some music playing, but I don't know if I'll do that because that can interfere with the other practitioners. If I'm playing music,
 
[00:19:30.900] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Right.
 
[00:19:31.820] - Gina Citoli, Guest
So probably not the music, so they can come here the music at the presentation.
 
[00:19:35.960] - Candi Broeffle, Host

And I do,  I just want to let people know, too, here before we go onto our next break. That one of the things that I really appreciate about the show, and I think other people will find this, too, is that the information. Is it's things that we already know intuitively, already know it. You just bring it to our attention in a way.
 

[00:19:55.840] - Gina Citoli, Guest

And I give you a good example. I was thinking about this because this is the best way to explain it. In Sedona, a woman came up to me after the show and she get wrote a review. And she says, I knew all this stuff. But she says this went straight to my heart. She says the next day she went out hiking in Sedona, and they're having all sorts of problems with people scarring the land as they put it. And so she realized she didn't want to focus on the negative.
 
[00:20:20.100] 

She focused it on the positive. It's what Mama Earth said. And then she says in two minutes of hummingbird flu in front of her, I thought I did my job.

[00:20:27.430] - Candi Broeffle, Host
There you go. So for people who want to learn more about Your Shining Life Expo and to register for the event, visit Your ShiningLifeExpo.Com. You can also see the entire program in our November issue of Natural Awakenings, which you can find on the newsstands beginning November 1, you are listening to Green Tea Conversations on AM950, the Progressive Voice of Minnesota. And we will be right back.
 
[00:21:01.790] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talk to the experts who share their expertise on natural health with you.

[00:21:11.220] 
I'm your host, Candi Broeffle. And today we're talking with Amy Vasterling. Gina Citoli in the now I got Gina and Gene. And I went, oh, no. Did I say it wrong? So, Gina Citoli, Jeanne Lecher and SchaOn Blodgett. Oh, my apologies, Lecher. Oh, my goodness. That's going to be a tough one. And these are four of our presenters who will be at Your Shining Life Expo, which is on Saturday, November 9, from 9:30 until four at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Roseville. And we are visiting with them today because they are what we call our Premier exhibitors, meaning they're going to have Exhibit booths, but they're also doing some workshops, and we're really excited to hear about all the workshops that you guys are doing.
 
[00:22:11.230] 
And now we're going to start talking with Amy.
 
[00:22:13.680] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Thanks. Thanks for having me.
 
[00:22:15.610] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Amy Vasterling of Intuitive Pathfinder. Why don't you tell us a little bit about your business?
 
[00:22:21.760] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Okay. Thanks. Yeah. I have a business that is primarily focused on intuition, parenting, and also art. And I've merged the three based on the idea that everything is connected. So what I'm focused most on at this Shining Life Expo is talking to parents about highly sensitive children, who they are, and what that means. It's a very misunderstood peace in our society, and these kids actually is a personality type. And I would be willing to say all the attributes here, but there are 27 plus, so it's too many to share here on air.
 
[00:22:56.550] 
But it's important to me and close to my heart to have these kids get the support that they need, because what happens is I created a method to parenting these children out of my own experience and understanding of being a highly sensitive person as well as having highly sensitive children. And what I found is they become your easiest to parent
 
[00:23:14.120] - Candi Broeffle, Host
As long as you know how exactly and what it is that they need,
 
[00:23:17.820] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Right. It's very powerful.
 
[00:23:19.110] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So I do have to kind of ask you, I don't need to know all 27 attributes, but how would somebody maybe how would it show up in their child? How would somebody know if they have a highly sensitive child?
 
[00:23:32.580] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
It's common for children these days to be anxious and depressed, but these kids particularly tend to shut down between six and seven and nine and ten for a certain reason. And there are so many attributes that they tend to be very sensitive to a lot of things in the world. They get stimulated way too fast and go from zero to 60 quickly. They also tend to report that they feel different, but they don't know why.
 
[00:23:57.500] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay.
 
[00:23:58.020] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
And they can't put their finger on it, and a lot of that actually revolves around they have a different nervous system. They're actually built differently.
 
[00:24:03.880] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So it's showing up as a lot. Sometimes it can show up as anxiety and different
 
[00:24:10.540] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Sensitivities to a lot of things, light and sound and smell as well as sensitivities to clothing. But it also comes around being empathetic, seeing that other people are hurting or there's a problem with somebody. And they can understand that at a much deeper level, kind of a harboring or a piece that's really synonymous with the highly sensitive. Or we call them in HSP, which is a highly sensitive person, or an HSC which is a highly sensitive child, is that they are processing their environment at a much higher level. So kind of a quick example for a child could be they're in a classroom, and it appears they might have add because they're having a really hard time focusing, but at home they can focus for long periods of time.

[00:24:53.690] 
So there are ways that it's really missed because it's quite subtle, and that's a sort of the problem.
 
[00:24:58.500] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And it's probably really confusing for the parents, too, because they're like, we're not seeing this at home. We're not seeing this.
 
[00:25:04.490] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Well,
 
[00:25:04.970] - Candi Broeffle, Host
saying this is happening at school.
 
[00:25:06.570] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Right. I've had a lot of parents say to me, what disorder is this? Because it is kind of difficult to understand, but the children the trick is they already know they came preprogrammed knowing in a way that's different than others. So if we start to get into parenting out of a certain model, those children get very distressed by it, because actually, I feel like what they're are doing is trying to buck the model, to break the model and leave it behind so that we can be empowered.
 
[00:25:32.100] 
Just what Jeanne is talking about. We're helping people, probably all of us here today. And all the people you'll speak to interviewing this for your event is that we're all trying to help people be empowered and live their full life. Right. I'm trying to circumvent and help these kids because I feel like they have the opportunity to break the model. And when the other 80% of our world, because HSCs are 20% of our world can see that and then break it themselves, they can see how it's done.
 
[00:25:59.720] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So at the Expo, now you'll have a workshop in the workshop you are doing is entitled.
 
[00:26:04.820] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Yeah, it's about giving clarity to parents to see if you have a highly sensitive child so that you can start to identify boy, this really sounds like my child. So it really is just a clarity session of helping you see who they are.
 
[00:26:17.470] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so with your workshop, too. Well, speaking of highly sensitive children, if somebody has four kids, it doesn't mean all four of them for

[00:26:30.490] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
correct
 
[00:26:30.490] - Candi Broeffle, Host
could have been, but maybe only one person.
 
[00:26:33.000] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
And you're right. It's tricky. And generally one parent does. Or in my case, both of my children are highly sensitive, but very differently, and I suspect it's in both parents. I'm not positive it takes time to watch it. But you're right. So it could be one child or some kids carry two attributes. Extraordinarily were at a very high level, and then a bunch of the attributes more subtly. So sometimes it's hard and tricky to figure it out, but I'll just be giving them clarity. They will know my intuition if this is their child, and then I have some free ways to get more support and help with that that I'll offer at that event.
 
[00:27:12.100] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Great. And you'll have that at your booth as well.

[00:27:15.580] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
I will. As well as after I speak, I'll share that information.
 
[00:27:18.990] - Speaker 1
So what else can people expect at the booth when they come to see you.
 
[00:27:22.630] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Yeah. Well, I have another free because I'm an intuitive reader. I have a monthly event that I hold. It's called the Wisdom Gathering. And that really is came out of a lot of clients saying to me I want a place to be able to speak about intuition or to speak about my thoughts. And so where I define that, is it's really for people who are deep thinkers and want to have non-surface conversations with that deep conversation? It's an opportunity for that. So I do a reading for the group, and then we talk about what came up for them.
 
[00:27:50.930] 
I write questions and they Journal by themselves to start to elicit that spot of what are they getting for themselves. And then we break into small groups and then a large group and have a conversation to help others see. They can neutralize the playing field by seeing how others are looking at their life and so on.
 
[00:28:07.000] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So they can learn more about that at the booth.
 
[00:28:09.150] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
They can. And I'll have actually a card where you can pick it up and have a free admission to try at one time for that Wisdom Gathering.
 
[00:28:15.810] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And you also a shameless plug here for Natural Awakenings. You'll also have the new free about this in the November issue.
 
[00:28:23.070] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
I do that's. Yeah,
 
[00:28:24.160] - Candi Broeffle, Host
That's great. And then November issue is the program as well for your Shining Life Expo. So the program will be on the back of the magazine. It's a flip magazine. So everybody, when you pick it up, you can see what is all happening at the Expo as well at the same time. Thank you.
 
[00:28:43.660] - Amy Vasterling, Guest
Thanks, Candi
 
[00:28:44.680] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And we'll be coming back. But before we do, I want to introduce SchaOn Blodgett.
 
[00:28:50.820] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
Hello.
 
[00:28:51.390] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Hi. So, SchaOn, why don't you tell us a bit about your your business?
 
[00:28:54.730] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
My business with Psinergy, Natural Health and Holistic bonus started just over eleven years ago, and I help people access their awesomeness, naturally. I specialize in working with busy professionals who want to feel youthful and vibrant again. In my clinic, we offer a lot of empirical and science-based holistic health modalities like Sage color, puncture, complex homeopathy and also basic Ayurveda. And then Additionally, we also offer more spiritual-based therapies or energy-based therapies like therapies from the IChing Reiki Crystal therapies. And so what else?
 
[00:29:38.360] - Candi Broeffle, Host
SchaOn is a natural learner and you are just very well versed on many different modalities.
 
[00:29:47.370] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
Yeah. Like, I'm constantly taking different classes and stuff like that. I first started out professionally with just the Esogenics medicine, and I was like, okay, I really like this. But there's a couple of things that I'm noticing clients coming back with, and it seems to be an issue with their diet. So then I started learning about Ayurveda and figuring out how can people change their diet to better match them individually. And so a lot of these classes that I take is because because I have a client that has this lingering issue, and it's like, okay, what else do I need to learn to better help this particular individual?
 
[00:30:33.080] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And you also will be having a booth and a workshop. So what is the name of the workshop?

[00:30:38.950] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
The workshop. This is actually one that I developed for the state of Minnesota. They had me come in to do a workshop for them, two different presentations. And it's called on the Quest for Your Relaxation, simple, effective Stress Reducer for the as a professional. And so in that we're going to that kind of sums it right up for everybody, all those busy professionals and a lot of people in the American culture right now. Honestly, it really needs to change. But it's going to be a little bit before our culture changes.
 
[00:31:12.190] 
And so we have to figure out what can we do to support people right now until the system is able to change? And what are these quick, simple, effective ways that people have? What are certain things that they can add to their food, like macaroni and cheese? Lots of people love macaroni and cheese. A lot of people aren't going to give up macaroni and cheese. So what are some things that you can do to make that a little bit more healthier easier in your digestion and also give you a little bit more energy without changing that base structure?
 
[00:31:42.330] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So I have to know, what is that?
 
[00:31:46.170] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
So one of the things that you can do with macaroni cheese is add about a quarter to a half teaspoon of turmeric in there and a little bit of black pepper. And the black pepper is really important with turmeric. The reason why is because it makes it 2000 times more bio available. And what turmeric does is one. It helps to warm the digestive system. It helps to balance the natural flora and bacteria in the entire digestive system. And as it spreads out from the digestive system, it's actually very cooling for the rest of the body.
 
[00:32:20.160] 
So it helps reduce inflammation, all that kind of stuff. And in air beta, they say that it helps to make you more flexible before yoga, and it also helps to attract prosperity.
 
[00:32:29.700] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Well, my goodness, I am adding turmeric from now on. I always add black pepper to my macaroni. But turmeric will be
 
[00:32:37.060] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
And black pepper actually contains the power of the sun. They say,
 
[00:32:40.980] - Candi Broeffle, Host
oh, interesting.
 
[00:32:42.250] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
Great for times when we're not having as much sun as we're going into right now.
 
[00:32:49.150] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so when people come to your booth, what are you going to be doing?
 
[00:32:54.170] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
It at my booth? I'm mostly going to be talking with people because people have so many different questions. They're like, I have this going on. What can I do for that? So just having one on one conversations. For the most part, if somebody wants to try out one of the modalities, I am going to have one of the synapses brainwave machines there, and we're going to be doing the short gamma brainwaves therapy. It takes ten minutes to do and what it does, it just kind of helps to get you more in sync with everything.
 
[00:33:24.940] 
And. So I don't like to do a lot of therapies out there just because I know lots of other people are doing therapies I'd rather talk with people.
 
[00:33:33.340] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So if people want to experience that, is that a low-cost service or is that
 
[00:33:38.560] 
Yes. That is a very low-cost service. I do charge more for it in the office, but at the Expo, I think I'm charging just a couple of Bucks.
 
[00:33:46.320] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Good. So people have the opportunity to try it. So we are going to head into a break now. And I just want to say that when we come back, we're also going to kind of wrap it up and let people know about what else you're doing in the next couple of months.

And it's called Visionary Insights. And that will be on the 16 November where is that one. It's a new metaphysical store in Haste thing called Soul Goods. And this is all on my website so they can find it there. And then I have a performance of my second show, The Magic in Afton one that's December 7.
 
[00:36:31.470] 
And then we're tentatively working on a holiday show. So that will be announced fairly soon.
 
[00:36:37.900] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Is the holiday show going to be a brand new show or.
 

[00:36:40.810] - Gina Citoli, Guest

Oh, very cool.
 
[00:36:44.720] - Gina Citoli, Guest
It's going to have a special ending and she's going to have a little Manhattan. She's going to get all decked out for the holiday.
 
[00:36:51.520] - Candi Broeffle, Host
It's sassy
 
[00:36:52.340] - Gina Citoli, Guest
And sassier than she already is.
 
[00:36:55.270] - Candi Broeffle, Host

[00:37:00.530] - Gina Citoli, Guest
G-I-N-A Citoli C-I-T-O-L-I .Com and everything from there will direct you where you need to go.
 
[00:37:10.020] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Yes. Thank you so much. And that's exciting. I think a holiday show with your girlfriends or somebody significant in your life.
 
[00:37:18.670] - Gina Citoli, Guest
Now, the message you've seen the show, the message is peace and love. That's the holidays. It's every major religion. And somebody says, Well, why don't you do a holiday? I thought and I've got a Christmas song and a Christmas story that actually it was number one hit on Co when it first came out many years ago. It's been all over the world myself, sister. And I wrote it so I can just leave some different things into the show with it. And I don't know what else surprises I might add up yet either, but we're working on the venue right now, just trying to decide which venue to do with it.
 
[00:37:54.810] 
But if you stay on my website, you can get on my newsletter there and everything can keep. I've got a place you can always find my calendar and find what I'm up to.
 
[00:38:02.930] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Very good. Thank you. And SchaOn, so. You have, like we said.
 
[00:38:09.620] 
Very many services that you provide. You also have a lot of products and a lot of products that you can recommend to people that you have right in your store, which makes it really convenient. So when people come in and you have a recommendation for them, they don't have to go anywhere else to get it right.
 
[00:38:29.690] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest
And if they don't have it in the clinic, what I do is they can actually order it. I've got an online dispensary that we can order through and have it shipped directly to them. People can order that directly also, right from their website, access the online dispensary there as well. And I do have a couple of classes coming up in the next few months as well. Originally, I was supposed to have one on November 9, but that's going to get rescheduled in terms of your shining in.
 
[00:38:58.540] 
Right.
 
[00:38:58.810] 
And I I scheduled that particular workshop, like at the beginning of the year, because Candi is like, oh, you should come up with a plan for the entire year. And I'm like, all right, I'm going to do this. And I'm like, all right. This day is going to be a really awesome day. And obviously it's going to be. But all of that stuff is on my website, too.
 
[00:39:16.560] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. And your website again
 
[00:39:19.390] - SchaOn Blodgett, Guest

And that is on Tuesday that's in Hastings, Minnesota, and offering the So body massage, which incorporates all of what I do. So it's a beautiful session to go even deeper than just doing the reading and the energy work and things. So that's also what I'm doing. So you can find that on my website, which is JeanneLecher.Com, which is J-E-A-N-N-E Lee C-H-E-R.Com.
