Westchester Holistic Network: September Meeting

The Magic that is in all of us
A practical approach to Spirituality: Reiki Fusion

Tuesday September 11:
Networking starts 6:30
Formal meeting at 7 PM

We invite you to enter into the world of energy healing and journeying. In a circle of welcomingwe will learn about Energy Healing: What are the Chakras and the Auric Field? You will be guided to discover the condition of your energy centers and auric field, through the use of a pendulum (which is a free gift for you.)

You have the option of receiving activation of your hands for self-healing and for sharing with others.

We will demonstrate what an energy diagnosis is, and how to then clear, cleanse and energize areas of your energy body.

There will also be a demonstration of the Journeying part of Reiki Fusion. A meditation with music and the use of a crystal singing bowl will invite the movement of consciousness to a deeper state where, as in a waking dream, you may access wisdom that was in you all along.

You will receive handouts about the nature of Chakras and another about levels of consciousness. You will take away practical, invaluable skills to integrate into your daily life for balance, clarity and elevation of Spirit.
