Nearly 40 percent of American adults use approaches to their health and well-being, such as meditation and massage, that fall outside our traditional system of medical care. Interest in these mind-body, or “complementary” modalities, has been rapidly growing, but their benefits are not widely understood by the general public.

The mental health team is offering this introductory workshop to allow participants to learn more about them and actually experience what they have to offer. Instructors will be teaching the basics of Qigong, healing meditation, Swedish self-massage and Reiki.

Our instructors include:

  • Carol Rogers, a licensed clinical social worker who incorporates mind-body work into her practice and is a certified group leader in Spring Forest Qigong
  • Cynthia Piltch, leader of Isaiah’s mental health team and a health educator, massage therapist and Reiki master teacher with 25 years of experience in mind-body work
  • Matia Angelou, a rabbinic pastoral counselor who has taught meditation in a variety of settings, including Hebrew College and Temple Isaiah, who blends her knowledge of meditation with Spirit Song to create a vibrational immersion for healing

Wear comfortable clothes and bring an open mind. RSVPs encouraged for our planning purposes. There will be a reception immediately after. Please contact Shana Alexander for more information or to reserve your place.
