Butterfly Wonderland introduces stress reduction gatherings


Butterfly Wonderland, in collaboration with Tami Sharp, a certified transformational and clinical hypnotherapist, is now offering peaceful, guided sessions designed to help people reduce their stress levels, on the first and third Wednesday of every month.

During the stress reduction gatherings, guests are invited to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of Butterfly Wonderland’s rainforest atrium in which 3,000 friendly butterflies fly freely, along with tropical birds from around the world.

Guests are encouraged to practice a variety of stress-relieving methods such as journaling, coloring and meditating. The gatherings begin with an introduction complete with guided imagery and relaxation education in an intimate classroom-style setting. Guests dealing with any type of stress are welcome, yet the meet-ups are truly intended to help people dealing with PTSD, trauma, anxiety and depression, as well as their loved ones and caregivers, according to a press release.

The sessions will be held on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 3 to 5 p.m.; price is $20 per session. Each session is limited to only 15 people to ensure each guest benefits from the safe, comfortable environment of the gatherings.

Butterfly Wonderland is located at 9500 E. Via de Ventura in Scottsdale.
