Coming in September! A Special 10-Class
Meditation Series

Let me know now if you may be interested.

For two hours each week, we will gather to experience some of the many ways to meditate. This will be an exploration, a pilgrimage. Those who participate are committed to bringing some form of meditation into their daily lives. They are excited to share this experience with other like-minded, like-hearted people. Class size is limited to allow time for sharing and dialogue, personal instruction, weekly sitting practice, and special readings. This class will deepen your spiritual life. Three off-site meditation experiences are included..

Healing Therapies Are Now on a Sliding Scale
Chi Nei Tsang ... Transcutaneous Acupuncture ... Healing Touch ... Reiki Accunect ... or a blend of these therapies are available on a sliding scale of $60 to $100.

Please pay what you can afford. All sessions are 1.0-1.5 hours. A healing session is especially beneficial at the time of seasonal changes.

See Classes and Calendar for details.

Change is inevitable. Navigating change underlays everything we do in life. The ancients understood this. Through study of the human body and human nature, they developed simple, yet profound ways to transform internal energies to maintain a healthy relationship of body and mind, and achieve healing and a balanced approach to life. Join me on retreat, in classes, or one-on-one to explore these healing practices. They can change your life, as they have mine!
