More and more therapies are being created that incorporate some form of energy healing, but I bet the majority of us still don’t quite understand what energy healing is or how it works. Everything around us has some form of energy, including our bodies. Each person has in their body a store of energy and certain energy patterns. These energy-storing centers of the body are called chakras. Energy patterns are the result of each event that has occurred across a person’s lifetime. Some of these will be good patterns while some will be the result of unhappy or painful experiences. These painful memories may sometimes get stored away deep in the chakras. However, they don’t go away, but are instead forgotten. These bad energy patterns can cause an imbalance in the whole energy field of the individual (also known as the aura). Over our lifetime, we also absorb a number of negative energy forms, such as anger, fear, doubt, and judgment. Healing techniques that release the bad energy in our body help us to move toward happiness and achieve peace within ourselves.

Energy work is the general term for describing all the therapy modalities that are based on energy healing. They are all focused on the belief that the human body contains many levels of energy, that when stimulated through various techniques, will promote overall health and well-being. There are many techniques that can be used to help you establish healthier emotional patterns. You will learn some of these; this is the gateway to a better life for you and all that you come in contact with.

Stay tuned for the next workshop!!

Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle

Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle, facilitated by Mandy, is an open spiritual and empowerment support circle for people of any path looking for fellowship, fun, and spiritual support in a safe and nurturing environment!
The Empowerment Circle is held at 1718 Rockhill Rd., Manhattan, unless otherwise noted.
Lotus Fire consists of round table discussions on different topics for personal growth, empowerment, and development, as well as learning ways to connect with our Selves through energy work and meditation. We will also learn practical application for energy movement, how to set intentions, learn what manifestation ‘looks’ like, and many other topics!
The Lotus Fire group will also include some craft days, as a way of exploring our Divine Selves through creative expression! Cost for craft days will be $5 per person, to help cover the cost of supplies.
The Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle, hosted by Spark of Life Community, meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6-8 p.m.! As a reminder, 6:00 – 6:30 p.m. is our ‘meet and greet’ time, to get to know each other and de-stress a little from our days. The gatherings begin promptly at 6:30 and conclude at 8:00 p.m. Please see the individual descriptions below for locations for the gatherings.
