Fridays, September 9 & 23, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Animal Reiki Sessions with Kathleen Lester
Reiki is a non-invasive, complementary and alternative healing practice, promoting overall health and well-being. It balances the energy patterns and strengthens the animal's natural healing systems. When the animal's healing systems are performing at optimum level, the body, mind and spirit can heal itself. Reiki is a wonderful healing therapy to aid in pain management (arthritis, cancer, etc.), promote relaxation and calm for stressed or anxious animals, increase the bond between human and animal, and ease the transition from life into death. Bring your animal companion in and see what wonders Reiki can do.

Wednesday, September 14, 7 p.m. - 8 p.m. Self-Healing Method through Bodywork and Movement
Come listen to Dr. Meir Schneider speak about his Self-Healing Method through Bodywork and Movement, a unique method and entire health-care system, preventative as well as rehabilitative. This method teaches awareness and subtle movement in the body, with attention given to each limb and joint, to the major internal organs such as the heart, lungs, and intestines and to all functional systems of the body. It employs specific massage and mobilization techniques for regeneration, e.g., to strengthen bones, improve nerve function, regenerate dystrophic muscle; increase joint mobility, release muscle spasm, improve wound healing, and to create a sense that more movement is possible. These massage and movement techniques amplify each other. This method of bodywork and movement also teaches exercises and meditations to relax the eyes, train the brain to command better vision, accustom the eyes to varying intensities of light and to balance the use of both eyes working together. Combining bodywork with vision improvement enables the practitioner to address conditions that other vision improvement or bodywork methods cannot. See more here.
Dr. Meir Schneider is a pioneer therapist who developed his method out of his own healing from blindness. He is author of publications such as Movement for Self-Healing, The Natural Vision Improvement Kit and Yoga for Your Eyes. Dr. Schneider will be signing books after his lecture. Cost: Free
Thursday, September 15, 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Astrology and Spiritual Growth led by Eric Meyers. Individual readings available 11 am - 5 pm.
There are many misunderstandings of what astrology is and how it works. Most astrology is geared to inform people who they are, the basic personality structure. A spiritual approach reveals why we have a certain disposition. This lecture will present basics in understanding our astrological attunement from the framework of spiritual growth---from unconsciousness to greater spiritual awakening. In addition, we'll explore how to discern what the central lessons a soul is taking on. We will use some willing participants' charts as examples. No background in astrology needed.
Learn more about Eric here. Cost: $10 suggested donation
Friday, September 16, 11 am - 5 p.m. Individual Astrology Consults with Eric Meyers
Eric's astrology consultations aim to reveal the deepest levels of self-understanding: soul intentions, unconscious tendencies, inherent assets, and the general spiritual lessons needing to be addressed. Eric's approach is termed "evolutionary", which assumes that the soul learns and develops through successive lifetimes. Understanding the resonances from the past helps to bring about healing, integration, and closure. We are then freer to address the current life's intentions from a place of clarity and empowerment. This type of astrology places less emphasis on personality, and more on the spiritual work suggested in the chart.
Every chart is seen as a depiction of the movement from unconsciousness to greater spiritual awakening, and Eric is honored to assist clients in not only understanding, but also developing timely strategies to address the work at hand. Cost: Half hour: $50; hour: $80
Friday, September 16, 7 p.m. - 8 p.m. Break Free and Relax with Sound Healing

Andrea guides you into a relaxed state through gentle deep breathing and mindfulness practices. Loving heartbeat drumming assists in releasing attachment to thoughts and worries, and connects you to your own heart and the heart of Mother Earth. Finally, crystal singing bowls and vocal toning bathe you in angelic vibrations of love and light. You are in control of how deep you go--a restful nap while bathed in soothing vibrations...or an opportunity to do deep internal releasing work.
Andrea Wenger, MAHA, facilitates healing experiences for upside-down living with groups and individuals-to break free from should and live life according to your own rules. Cost: $15. Bring anything that would assist you in being comfortable lying down: a yoga mat, blanket, pillows, etc
