Art exercises for healing and manifestation

Collage your dreams and goals.  When we create 3-D art that articulates our goals, it adds power to our intention, as well as helps us to get clear about what it is we would like to attract into our lives.  Here’s one of our favorite Healing House Art Therapy sessions.

  1. Meditate on your goals and dreams.
    Sit comfortably, spend a few minutes focusing on your breath, gradually making the breath longer and slower and deeper.  Bring on hand to your heart, and spend a moment connecting to your heart center.  Then ask your heart what it is you would like to create, achieve or attract.  Listen.
  2. Free write what you find. 
    Maintaining this connection to heart, spend 5-20 minutes free writing about these intentions.  Through this act of articulation, we find new insights and clarity.  When you finish, go back and underline key words and phrases.  Notice what new information has arisen.
  3. Create your vision board/dream collage. 
    Here you’ll need a few materials…such as old magazines, wrapping paper, newspaper, fabric, beads and buttons, and anything else you might like to contribute to your collage.  You’ll also need a big sheet of sturdy paper or cardboard, as well as some glue (Both Elmer’s and hot glue would be great.)  With you vision (goals and dreams) in mind and heart, find pieces to represent it.  As you piece together your collage, notice what sorts of new information and clarity come through.
  4. Perpetuate your vision. 
    By hanging your artwork somewhere that you can see it and think about it regularly, you will continue to send energy to it, bringing in constantly closer to manifesting.  You may like to meditate on it, or share it with others, to help perpetuate it forward.
  5. Give thanks! 
    The keys to manifestation are to create with pure intention (no harm to yourself or others, for the highest good) and to give thanks for already having achieved your goal!

3 easy tips for turning your iPhone into a portable recording studio

This generation's rock superstars live at Healing House

Recording a hit song to share the world is no longer out of your reach. You can now have a near-professional quality recording from the palm of your hand with your iPhone.

1. Keep your phone close and its microphone closer. The quality of the sound depends on your device’s microphone. The iPhone’s microphone is high quality, but it does work best when it is no further than a foot from the source of sound.

2. There’s an app for that. There are a variety of applications available that can help make the most of your recordings. Four Track, with its four track recorder and the ability to upload from the app to your computer via WiFi, is one that is highly recommended. Experiment with different applications to find one that meets your needs and style.

3. Use your computer to make the most of your recording. Export your recordings from your iPhone to your computer to apply effects and get your song radio-ready for all the world to hear.

A Natural Way to Clean Your Yoga Mat!

i Apr 4th No Comments by
  • If your mat is super cruddy, gently scrub it with a paste of baking soda and water (just mix until the paste is like toothpaste), and then rinse clean with water.
  • If you need deep disinfectant, wash with half white vinegar and half water, then rinse well with water.
  • For daily cleansing, use one quart of distilled (or boiled) water in a spray bottle with 20 drops of lemon essential oil or sweet orange essential oil (or both). Spray and wipe.

Tip: Never roll up your mat wet!

Join us in our creative approach to this classic Usui training.

Reiki Training Level 1 – March  14-15

Reiki Training Level 2 – March 16-17

Reiki is a practice of Energy Medicine, which was formalized in Japan but has ancient roots throughout Asia and the Middle East. Reiki energy is transferred via laying on of the hands. This Reiki training is Usui/Takata lineage; you receive a certification upon completion.

Reiki I training initiates you into the practice, and you finish as a Reiki practitioner, with an understanding of the history and philosophy of Reiki, and ready to practice on yourself and others.

Reiki II training deepens your practice, initiating you into the use and understanding of sacred Reiki symbols used to intensify energy transmission, distance heal, and work more deeply on shifting mental and emotional patterns.

We cover not only the classic teachings of these two levels of Reiki, but also incorporate other helpful techniques and practices, like working with the chakras, how to use crystals, work with affirmations, and more. The course is also unique in its use of creative art and expression (drawing, movement, writing, etc.) as a tool to help us move and understand energy.

*Students decide for themselves if they want to participate in level one or both levels. If a student already has been initiated into level one with another teacher or institution, we ask them to sit in on our level one before proceeding with level two.
