Reiki I

Reiki (pronounced ray-ki) is an ancient form of healing that originated in Tibet then brought to Japan, where the form was further developed by Master Mikao Usui. Reiki is a universal Life Energy that connects all living beings., Reiki is passed down and taught as a gentle but powerful form of healing for the body, mind and soul.
Many people learn Reiki for self-healing. The desire to learn is often a deeply personal one. With a Reiki I certificate, a person can do Reiki for themselves, family, friends and pets. Reiki can also be used alone or in conjunction with other healing arts. Students will learn the history of Reiki, and develop their personal connection with Reiki. They will be given Reiki I attunements and taught how to do a healing, and hand positions and lots of time to practice the hand positions on each other.

Please wear comfortable clothing.

Certificates will be presented upon completion of the training.

Stories in Action: Playback Theatre

Mondays: 6:30-9 pm  Beginning September 29- November 3

Led by Jennie

Stories are how we understand our world, who we are, where we have come from, and what we may have come through. These Moments of our lives can be touchstones, full of power and significance. They are the glue that holds families, communities and cultures together. Join us for a weekly practice of Playback Theatre devoted to enhancing our creativity and play as we form a community of storytellers in action. Using Playback Theatre as the core, participants will learn how to use Theatre to transform personal stories told by workshop participants into theatre pieces on the spot using movement, ritual, music and spoken improvisation. Participants will share their stories and learn to bring these stories to life through Playback and other creative theatre techniques including, Psychodrama and theatre of the Oppressed. Using this form of theatre develops intuition, insight, creativity, empathy and effective communication skills. This course is recommended for performers, teachers, educators, activist’s social workers, policy makers and everyone else.

Pre-Registration Required    Fee: $150

Journey to the Soul

Heart _ArtTuesdays, September 30th – November 4 6:30-9:00pm

Led by Jennie
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily lives from our souls” Pablo Picasso

Do you feel that you have little time for yourself? Not enough time to simply be?
In this 6-week class cycle, you can explore in an open expressive arts studio to combine uninhibited art-making with thoughtful writing and reflection. The studio at JourneyWorks is a safe space, free of criticism, providing you with a healthy environment to access your inner wisdom and explore and expand your intuition. No prior art or writing experience necessary – just an open mind. This is a time for you to deepen your journey inward, and to explore your own soul’s path in your own way.
After a simple orientation, you will have time to independently explore the studio through movement, writing, drawing, painting, and simple sculpture materials. Techniques will be presented such as Touch Drawing, altered book making, paper making, painting, collage and puppetry. We will finish by coming back to the circle to share our experiences and creations with each other in a supportive way. Support and guidance is available throughout.

Sign up for one or for all!

Registration Required. $40.00 per session. Sliding scale offered.
