Book Launch Focuses on Self Acceptance Training

Cherie McCoy

Cherie McCoy

Cherie McCoy, co-founder of Self Acceptance Training, is returning home to southeastern Wisconsin to present and autograph her newly published book, Becoming Alive and Real: Journey into the Body’s Truth. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. on August 15 at the Center for Well-Being Lake Country, and will include a demonstration of McCoy’s work.

“My intention throughout the writing of this book has been mainly to spread the word of how important it is to search the body for its truth, resulting in the release of pain, old memories and unconscious behavioral problems. My hope is that this not only helps bring clarity concerning the tools and methods of Self Acceptance Training to those that I have worked with in the past, but also helps bring the work to new seekers that have not yet discovered the incredible liberation that this work offers,” McCoy says.

Self Acceptance Training is a mind-body exploration in which the student learns techniques to heal and let go of old traumas and memories, as well as current issues. This healing journey into the body promotes growth toward healthy interactions within the present world.

As one of the country’s leading practitioners of Self Acceptance Training, McCoy has been conducting workshops, professional seminars and supervision groups since 1971.

Location: 301 Cottonwood Ave., Hartland. For more information, call 262-391-8939 or visit C4WB.com. For information on McCoy’s upcoming workshops, visit SelfAcceptance.us.
