Two Moons on Aug. 27

Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August. It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will maximize on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am. It will look like the earth has 2 moons. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again. 

Keeping Up With the Board
– from President Karen Lyons

In addition to the election of Board members, those present approved a proposal for the much over due repair of the church building roof. That repair will take place this month. What a relief that will be. There is nothing more irritating to me than a leaking roof and dealing with water where it isn’t supposed to be. My heart goes out to those who suffered the destruction of flood waters.

As promised, several workshops are scheduled. As I look at the schedule, I believe there is something of interest for all of us. I hope as many as possible will take advantage of these opportunities to learn and spend time together. In the case of Jim’s Kiemotion Cranio Sacral Therapy, I would like to explain there will not be a certification available. If you have questions about this training, I’m sure Jim would be happy to visit with you. As Jim explained to me, any massage therapist or Reiki practioner would better serve their clients with this knowledge and skill.

The next Board meeting and pot luck dinner will be September 9, the second Sunday in September. We don’t have a workshop planned, but the cabins are available. The Board invites you to come stay and join us on Sunday morning. That invitation is good anytime, not just the first weekend of the month.
Don’t forget the Church is serving lunch at the auction of Irene Keith’s personal property on August 18. On Friday, the 17th we will be preparing the food at the Church. If you are able to help Friday or Saturday, we’d be glad to have you. If you aren’t up to helping sell our wares, you are still welcome to take part in the auction.

Please remember the Whitley’s in prayer. This is a difficult time of letting go. I hope to see you soon. I miss you. You know who I’m talking to. 

Healing Work or Private Counseling available after any Sunday Church Service by an attending Minister.

ATTENTION Reiki Practitioners
Your sensitive hands and energy techniques would make you a good
Cranio Sacral therapist.

Kiemotion Cranio Sacral I Workshop
CranioSacral therapy is a gentle non-invasive healing art which uses a very soft touch to facilitate profound Physical / Emotional changes. It will enhance the clients self-healing abilities and will provide symptomatic relief from a wide variety of dysfunctions and disabilities. This is a unique treatment in that the client is fully clothed on a massage type table. Energy perspectives are combined with subtle body movements that coincide with the craniosacral pumping action of the cerebro-spinal fluid. Reiki or other types of energy work experience is beneficial for the work shop but not necessary, as energy principles will also be taught. The result is an improvement in the
functioning of the nervous system, relaxation of traumatized muscles and organs, a more appropriate alignment of the skeletal frame, and the release of accumulated mental/emotional trauma.

Palpation and facilitation of the craniosacral rhythm.
Tui Na – Polarity techniques to free the CranioSacral System.
Neck release techniques – Including a powerful neck unwinding process that clients just love.
CV-4 (compression of the 4th Ventricle)
L-5 and Sacrum release
Still Points and unwinding principles.
Release of each cranial bone and its underlying tissue.

Jims Kiemotion Cranio Sacral One Book and a CD that guides you trough the one hour treatment
sequence is included with the class.

In order to use most of the class time doing hands on training it will help if you do some pre-study.
You will receive 5 hours training credit for your pre class home work.
Class Dates: Sat: Sept. 15 9:00am-5:00pm Sunday Sept. 16 1:30 – 6:00 Cost: $250.00
