Cheri & Vicki Bee Talk -Paying It Forward Radio Interview with Merri Medley

Merri Medley - Paying It Forward! 02/14 by Cheri and Vickis Bee Talk | Self Help Podcasts: Cheri & Vicki have spent years developing their skills and techniques to support women over 45 to get through their Second Chapter with as much ease and joy as possible. Their theme for 2017 is: 'Bee the Best You Can Bee in 2017'. February is 'Follow Your Heart!'. As Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioners, they are giving you the opportunity to get truly clear, so you can live your life with peace, purpose and joy! Merri has a very unique way of paying it forward. She was inspired by her technique, after losing everything in a home fire in 2014. After the Red Cross came in to support her and her family, she felt she 'just had to' do something that would support others. She has created a non-profit organization that can help you relax, lower blood pressure, stay mentally sharp, and manage chronic pain. Her mission is to provide you with another tool to heal your mind, body, and spirit.
