Chakra balancing is based on the ancient Indian belief in a series of seven chakras, or energy centers. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel. Chakra balancing is believed to promote health by maximizing the flow of energy in the body, much as a tune-up enables a car to operate at peak efficiency. Restoring the harmonious flow of energy across the chakra system is important for the well-being of the body and helps promote relaxation, centeredness, increased vitality and an overall feeling of well-being.
“Energy work” is used to help balance the systems of energy throughout the body to help alleviate stress and ailments. There are different approaches through different traditions. Essentially, when one feels unbalanced physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually energy work aids to restore and realign the body’s subtle vibrations. There are many ways to integrate energy work and healing into one’s life. The LifeLine Technique and Reiki are two of numerous energy work modalities offered.
We carry a nice selection of current and past well-known authors and valuable titles in the holistic wellness, mind/body/spirit, spiritual and self- support genres for children and adults. We also have a quiet area to sit for reading and research.
If you’d like to present a title that has been instrumental to your healing/wellness path for group discussion, please contact us.

Rites of Passage
Ceremonies can be facilitated for rites of passage in life. This involves the performance of rites to add intention and symbolic value to your special occasions such as a birthday, graduation, marriage, commitment, divorce, retirement, puberty, transition, death, baptism, or any significant event.
We gather to find insight and inner peace by spending time in the presence of positive and like-minded people of all ages; connecting with the natural world; studying sacred and high-vibrational texts; mindful breathing and movement; journaling; varying methods of meditation and prayer; and all ways of opening a channel to the Divine.
Some of our regularly scheduled gatherings include events such as a New Moon Intention Meditation Circle, guided meditation & discussion groups, and Full Moon Drum Circles. A drum circle offers equality because there is no head or tail and includes people of all ages. The main objective is to share rhythm and be in tune with one other forming a group consciousness. Recent research shows numerous well-being benefits associated with drumming.
We enjoy coming together for cooperative, constructive, and positive interaction between people of different religious traditions (i.e., “faiths”) and/or spiritual or humanistic beliefs, at both the individual and institutional levels.
When asked, “Why are there so many religions?” the Dalai Lama replied, “Why are there so many roads to San Francisco?” Though there are many faiths, we believe there is one Infinite Source of all things–one “God” known by many names.
