Barbara Stepniak is also the Managing Director of the Center of Being
From Saugerties, NY
What first brought you to IET?
In 2009 my children were both in school full-time and I was looking to go back to work. I was just learning about alternative and complementary therapies. I started as the office manager and after about a month I had my first session. That remote session changed my life and started me on my training journey. I become a Master-Instructor in 2010, Managing Director in 2017, and IET MI Trainer in 2017.
How long have you practiced IET and tell us about your journey in the modality?
I have been involved with Integrated Energy Therapy since 2009. It has truly changed my life. I LOVE this technique.
Integrated Energy Therapy has transformed my healing journey in ways that I could never have thought possible. It allowed me to finally grief losing both of my parents to cancer, it helped me through the loss of 3 siblings and a divorce. IET has given me the tools I needed to be a single mom and guide my children to make good choices and face consequences. It keeps me grounded and centered to face any challenge that comes our way and to have the faith to know that the universe and the divine are always guiding us.
It took me a few years to start teaching and a few years to feel comfortable with teaching. Starting in 2017 I really started to embrace teaching others. I finally realized my true passion is to help practitioners and teachers be the best they can be. To help them learn to grow their client and teaching practice. I hope my love for IET and sharing my story inspires others to embrace their client and teaching practice to be of service to others.
IET has taught me how important self-care is and that if I am not centered and grounded I will not be good to help others.
Please share a special highlight during your experience with IET.
I have more experiences than I can share with IET but the most important and special one is the impact it has on my life. To see that my daughter understands the power and impact it has on my life and her desire to be part of it melts my heart. The experiences I value most are the daily support calls that allow me to lead others through processes that help them through challenging times and helps them to manifest their heart’s desires.
How has your work in IET benefitted you personally?
IET is my go-to for everything in life. I use the techniques on a daily basis. It has helped me step into my power and hold space for others to do the same. It has given me the strength to face experiences I would have avoided in the past and to learn from them. Integrated Energy Therapy has given me the freedom to focus on my career, family, and self-care allowing me to be a better leader, mother, friend and mentor.
