Percussion has been used as far back as we have evidence of human civilization. Drums, sticks, rattles and other items have been used to produce a rhythmic or monotonous beat for community celebration, for healing work, and to induce spiritual trance states. Drums are held sacred in many cultures around the world. This workshop is an opportunity for you to make your own drum. The making of special and sacred items imbues the object with your own personal power. The experience of creating a drum often is transformative in and of itself.

The word Reiki means universal life energy. Reiki is a form of laying on of hands healing with origins traced to Tibet. Reiki is a simple way of applying life force energy to relieve pain and speed the healing process, to vitalize, regenerate and balance all aspects of creation. It is a skill anyone can learn. There are three degrees or levels of the Reiki Ray. Each possesses a unique radiation of energy set forth for a specific purpose in healing.
Level I: $195 August 1, 2016 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Level II: $195 TBA
Advanced: $250 TBA
Level III: $275 TBA
The first degree opens you to the ability to channel this energy freely and teaches a sequence of hand positions. Once initiated, it allows a person to channel Reiki energy for healing oneself and others. It requires no special invocation or alteration of the thinking process to "turn on" the flow of Reiki. By simply placing hands on and opening the heart to love, one automatically brings in the energy. The first degree is the foundation of all three degrees.
The second degree requires further initiations for attunement to the keys utilized in this level. The student is trained to use appropriate Second Degree Key (symbols) which provide an increase of power from the Reiki Ray for absent healing including past and present (past lives etc.) and the healing of situations and mental/emotional healing. Almost all the symbols that are used in Reiki are Sanskrit symbols.
Advanced Reiki level can be taught in conjunction with the third degree or before. It focuses on one attunement and teaches the principles of Psychic Surgery, Reiki Crystal Grid, and Spiral Meditation Sequence.
The third degree is the teacher's degree, often referred to as "Master". No ego or ownership is otherwise involved in the term. The attunement involves spiritual level energy and achieves spiritual healing in the person receiving it. This energy is pure joy, oneness with all life, and connection with Source. In this level you will be attuned with 2 more symbols, and learn to teach and give attunements to your own students.
What Is Feng Shui? Feng Shui (or Wind and Water) is the practice of arranging your environment so that energy or “chi” flows gently and smoothly through your home or business environment. In this way your space just feels good–and supports what you want out of life-whether it’s a better career, new romance, improved health, or more income.
Not too fast or too slow—just right! Feng Shui is based on the concept that everything in your environment has a life force or energy called “chi.”
Just as chi flows through your body, chi also flows your through living environment. When the energy flow is stagnant (think clutter and overflowing closets), moves too quickly (think long dark hallways, stairs, and straight shots through the home), or is obstructed (think walls, trees, or even cars in the wrong place), the unbalanced chi may lead to ill health, domestic strife, or financial concerns.
Feng Shui adjustments can help you make sure that the chi energy flow is just right so that everything in your environment supports your wish for good luck, good health, harmonious relationships, and prosperity.
Hot Stone Energy Massage
When: At your convenience
This unique therapy uses high–energy palm stones which have been formed by sedimentary and volcanic action. Hot Stone Massage brings about local and systemic changes in the body by emitting a profoundly penetrating heat that melts tension from muscles. It is a natural heat transmitting method that also reduces emotional, postural and physical stress while therapeutically relaxing the skin and muscles, reducing tension, increasing energy, and diminishing fatigue.
The use of hot and cold stones (Thermotherapy) is also used to alleviate chronic pain as well as increase micro–circulation, oxygen intake, and orbital de-congestion. It is beneficial in bringing a feeling of balance and grounding to the mind, body and soul.
Learn history, stone properties and technique of hot/cold stone therapy with holistic healer, Carole Tetreault. Carole has been practicing Hot Stone Therapy massage, Reiki and Quantum Touch therapies for several years in her practice at the Calder Healing House Bed and Breakfast.
Whether you are a holistic healer, massage therapist or an individual who wants to use this therapy for family & friends this workshop is for you.
