Reiki is divinely guided life energy, balancing and healing body, mind and spirit. Rooted in Japan, Reiki is practiced around the world. Forgiveness is liberation from wounding experiences, not minimizing or approving harmful actions.

Neurological Integration System Therapy with Jean Christensen, LMT

Wednesday, July 10, 6:30 PM

Neurological Integration Systems, (NIS) is a system of health care that uses the brain to optimize the function and repair of the body. The body is constantly receiving information from all systems, e.g. the organs, glands, muscles and joints and this information is monitored by the brain. From time to time these circuits can breakdown, a bit like fuses in your house, due to physical, emotional, pathological or neurological stress. This leads to pain and discomfort or disease. NIS uses a set of treatment protocols to evaluate the neurological circuitry and reset the neurological function of the body. You are invited to come and learn what NIS has to offer for your health.

In cohousing, community members intentionally create a neighborhood that focuses on living better together. By doing so, a cohousing community fosters sustainability and resiliency for individuals and for the wider community. In this workshop, Skagit Cohousing, a developing community here in Skagit County will share why cohousing is attracting so many people and give an update on their project.
