Free Holistic Self-Care Classes
Sponsored by The Rondout Valley Holistic Health Community
Held at Marbletown Community Center | 1st Thursday Monthly | 7-8:30pm
Within the Rondout Valley Holistic Health Community, healthcare takes body, mind, emotions, and spirit into account. As health issues are addressed, individuals play an active and responsible role in the healing process. To help community members learn how to help themselves, we offer a series of monthly classes in holistic self-care. Your body knows how to heal itself when given the proper support. Come and learn a variety of methods to support your own well-being.
Join us Thursday, February 2nd:
Shamanic Plant Spirit Healing Journey with Barbara Fornal
Plant Spirit Healing is a shamanic practice of working directly with the consciousness and healing properties of plants. Plants possess a spirit essence that can communicate through light, sound and vibration. This process enhances well-being on all levels, deepens self-awareness and mediates integration with our own soul and strengthens our true nature.
In this class, participants will engage in a guided shamanic journey to the plant spirit of rose while listening to a live drum beating at 220 beats per minute for about 30 minutes. The brain relaxes into an aware, meditative state and we are open to information and imagery hidden from us in our ordinary states of consciousness. Please bring: cushion or yoga mat, notebook.
