Reiki Class Convening
The first session of a Second Degree Reiki Class will be held on Saturday, February 11th at 2 p.m at Chrysalis Farm. I will be incorporating new information learned from a Reiki teacher in Kentucky. Anyone interested in the class should contact me. We can discuss my sliding fee scale and other times if this one does not work for you.
Reiki Classes and Treatments
The Turning Place: Where Spirit and Earth Meet, is a center to hold meetings and activities related to Spiritual Science and its fruits. The Turning Place moved from Main Street last summer and after organizing the space and the library, the steering committee feels ready to offer a small program or festival study at each monthly meeting. We invite you to share in what we hope will be a nurturing activity.
Our monthly Turning Place meeting will take place on the second Monday of the month. The next meeting is Monday evening February 13, 2012 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Room 202, Landmark Center. For those who wish to socialize and browse the anthroposophical library, we will open at 6:30 pm.
The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm with our study this month on Rudolf Steiner’s Verse for America and we will work with Annette Conlon to move it with Eurythmy.
At 8:00 we will begin our business meeting, looking ahead to other monthly topics for the coming year. If you would like to be part of the planning, we welcome your ideas. If not, people can leave at this time.
Our monthly meetings are open to all who share an interest in the work of Rudolf Steiner and anthroposophy. We invite local friends of anthroposophy to share their work with us during these meetings, so let us know if you are interested in presenting some time during the year. We would like to have a statement describing your presentation or an outline; we also plan to have festival studies four times during the year (March, June, Sept., Nov).
