Community Healing Circle on March 7

I’ll be offering Ayurvedic face massages at the March 7 Community Healing Circle.

I just served as a teaching assistant for my friend Margo Uma Gal’s class at The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School. The class sold out with a wait list of 12. She’ll be teaching it again next winter, and you do not need to be a massage therapist to take it.

These face massages are slow, gentle, calming, and balancing, stimulating marma points to release blocked energies. (Many of us hold tension in our faces.)

Other benefits include promoting good sleep, improving mental alertness, and lymphatic drainage.

I use a small amount of a special oil blend, depending on your constitution.

To participate, just show up at Zero Gravity Yoga and Wellness and sign up for the healer and time slot you choose. The earlier you come (starts at 6 pm), the better chance you have of not having to wait — although waiting amid the pleasant company and healing vibe is lovely. It makes a lovely thing to do with a friend or date, and there will be multiple healing modalities to choose from.

Suggested donation for a 25-minute session is $25-35, with proceeds going to local nonprofits. More information is available on Facebook. https://facebook.com/events/s/march-into-wellness/230021528015078/?ti=icl

Community Healing Circle January 4

I’ll be back at this month’s Community Healing Circle, offering Heavenly Head Massage sessions for the first time. This will be an abbreviated version rather than the 45-minute version I’ve been offering at my office.

This monthly event offers 25-minute sessions from a collective of wellness practitioners that offer Reiki, massage, acupuncture, sound healing, astrology, and more. Practitioners vary from month to month. I’ve missed the past few months, and it will be good to be back.

The sessions are offered for a suggested donation of $25-35. Proceeds support charitable causes in the Austin area.

Come see us Friday, January 4, from 7-10 pm, at Soma Vida at 2324 E. Cesar Chavez. There’s a large parking lot in back. Enter through the back door  – we’re usually right there. Sign up for the practitioner and time slot that you prefer. Sessions start every 30 minutes. There are some light refreshments offered.

Community Healing Circle is on Facebook, where you can RSVP your plan to attend.

Also, Community Healing Circle is on Meetup, where you can join, RSVP, and request a reminder for your online calendar.
