Mindful Eating
Monday, July 25, at 6 p.m.

When applied to eating, mindfulness practice is a powerful tool which allows one to achieve a more balanced and harmonious relationship with food. Participants who practice mindful eating learn to read their own internal hunger and fullness signals, as well as determine what specific foods their body needs. This non-diet approach to eating allows one to achieve greater freedom, joy, and well-being around food. Participants in these programs have reported benefits including increased health, energy, and self confidence. 

Nicole Christina is a trained psychotherapist and has been a clinical social worker for over 20 years. She also leads programs on Mindful Eating and co-teaches an ongoing Mindful Eating series at Syracuse University

Reiki: The Ancient Healing Art
Monday, August 22, at 6 p.m.

Reiki, a therapeutic touch, is a holistic technique that continues to grow as a significant and respected remedial practice. It is a source of comfort by helping to release emotional trauma as well as aiding the body to relieve pain and hasten physical healing.

The basic concepts and principles of Reiki will be introduced. Specific hand positions to utilize Reiki energy will be demonstrated and will be practiced during the workshops. Students will then be able to perform Reiki on themselves as well as others.  

These two consecutive workshops will certify attendees as Reiki Level I practitioners. Certificates will be given at the end of the second training. Registration required 

NDolores Card has taught metaphysical principles and doctrines through classes, seminars, and workshops, as well as Reiki certification, for 25 years. She is a Reiki master, ecumenical minister, and spiritual advisor. Her professional career included working with victims of sexual assault at the Syracuse Rape Crisis Center for 15 years
