Reiki by Valla Reid and Genny Lewis

Scan Thursday_ February 07_ 2013Valla Reid is known to many as  an awesome hairstylist but did you know she is just as wonderful as a Reiki Master?  The “urban dictionary” describes a “HAIRAPIST” as one who cuts hari for a living, and after many years of hearing it all and providing advise, receives an honourary PHD in therapy.  So, after 25 years in hairapy and during a major life change, Valla stared going to “Healing Circle Meditation Class” in Marmora.  She always knew that true beauty comes within, but a great hair -do had to help too so why not combine both? Valla often uses  cystals in her Reiki sessions as well, how awesome is that?

Genny Lewis began her journey of healing by coming to meditation class with her friend Valla and their dear friend Krista. Here Genny discovered Reiki and her own intuitive skills. When Krista became ill, she found she was able to bring comfort and peace to her by using this Universal Life Force. Now Genny wants to share this gift with others. Stop by and feel it for yourself.

Milica’s capacity for perceiving energy is very potent and has developed into various healing arts over the last 2 decades.  In 1997 Milica was initiated in the Usui system of Reiki and has since become a Reiki Master.  This basis for hands on energy work led her to gain an interest in other systems of energy work that are available.  In 2012 Milica was trained in the BARS from Access Consciousness and is now certified to facilitate BARS and Body Processes classes from Access Consciousness. Bars has assisted thousands of people change many aspects of their body, and their life including sleep, health and weight, money, sex and relationship, anxiety, stress and so much more! This is an incredibly nurturing and relaxing process, undoing limitations in all aspects of your life that you are willing to change! How much of your life do you spend doing rather than receiving? Have you noticed that your life is not yet what you would like it to be?

Wild Blue Yonder Drumming

Wild Blue Yonder  Creative Learning and Conscious Living Items

Drumming circles are a wonderful way to relieve stress and to bring a community together through rhythm and song. A circle can be full of energy or calm and soothing, depending on the goal of its participants. When people drum a vibration occurs and it takes you to a place of no thinking. The vibration is much like water and it will seek its own place to vibrate, soothing and releasing the tension and energy in the heart, mind and soul. Our brains and our hearts produce their own rhythms and when combined with the rhythm of a drum it creates a trance like state thus creating a sense of relaxation and peace.
Be sure to visit the interactive booth of The Wild Blue Yonder Cabin “Try, Listen and Learn” about drums and instruments from around the world. For a taste of what they have available view their website at http://www.thewildblueyondercabin.com
