Opening of Whole Life Center

On Saturday the Whole Life Center … at the Rock opened.  Kristine Bentz, Sweetgrass Ceremonies, Annie Loyd, Urban Shaman, and Peg Heintzellman, Reike Master, graciously blessed the beginning of this healing center with their presence and skills.

Annie led a community drumming and Kristine opened the sacred circle.  Peg invoked the seven directions; Rev. Ken spoke of the importance of the work ahead.  The group responsively shared the mission of the Center:

Embracing the sacred.

Supporting life transitions.

Celebrating life passages.

Living through loss.

Welcoming solitude.

Strengthening spiritual practices.

Caring for our bodies.

Reducing stress.

Providing tools.

Telling stories.

With joy the ribbon was cut and everyone visited about the work of healing through promoting healthy responses to the realities of our lives and creating pathways to wholeness.  Judy Schwiebert led a yoga demonstration, Peg showcased Reike, and Tony Spencer led folks in Tai Chi.  Healthy snacks and great conversation flowed and the Center was launched.
