Leading EFT trainer, Founder and Director of Clear Point Center
As a young boy, Steve's dad would sit him in front of a candle to meditate. At that time Steve thought his dad was pretty strange, but he did plant a seed. In 2003, Steve sold his wholesale floral business to see more of the world and open himself to freedom and truth. His travels led him to Asia to study meditation, yoga and fasting, a summer of volunteer work at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies and then on to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to study a broad range of dietary theories. During that time Steve was introduced to Emotional Freedom Techniques. EFT became his passion and he is now recognized as a leading trainer in EFT. In 2005 Steve fullfiiled a life long dream of opening a center for personal growth, self-healing and self-realization. He named it ClearPoint!
In-House Nutritionist and Chef, Painter & Illustrator
Shannon McCarthy lives at Clear Point Center. She makes the food! During the growing season, her vegetable palette comes from the local community farm, where she serves on the Steering Committee. Her interest is in creating artfully presented food that is simple and whole.
Shannon has roots in St. Augustine, Florida and South Carolina. As such, Clear Point guests sometimes encounter a bit of Southern-style cooking. During the winter, she returns home (with Steve, a good sport :) to ensure that she doesn't turn into a Connecticut popsicle. During the summer, she likes to go swimming in the Staffordville Lake and pick blueberries down the way. In every season, she likes watching the birds- especially those big silly turkeys. This year she's growing an organic herb and edible flower garden in the backyard. Maybe the hummingbirds will come visit!
She is also a painter and illustrator. To view some of her work, visit www.shannonmccarthy.com
