Center for Spiritual Living Hosts
Energy Healing Workshop
The public is invited to come and enjoy two hours of energy healing, chi gung meditation, Chinese face reading and self-empowerment.

The Center for Spiritual Living is hosting a workshop on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Part I: “Chi” means life force or universal energy. “Gung” means work. Therefore, chi gung is a means of working with the Life Force to heal and strengthen the body and release blockages in the flow of Universal Energy, the Life Force. Part II Begins with the question: “Who do you think you are?” an introduction to the ancient Chinese art of reading face shapes. Knowledge of your face shape allows you to determine your physical, energetic and emotional archetype. With this information you can learn your inherent strengths, weaknesses and possible predisposition to specific health challenges.

Donation is $25. Wear comfortable clothing and come with an open heart and mind.
