The Whole Note Healing Collective is a cooperative community space organized by activists, healers, health practitioners and health and healing justice organizers. The collective includes leaders and advocates in Yoga, Reiki, Acudetox (Ear Acupuncture), Eco-psychology, Massage, Full Spectrum Reproductive Services, Belly Dance, Conflict Resolution and more. All members of this diverse group have multiple skills, offered as gifts to the community at large and are leaders in their own right.
Whole Note is a work in progress (and always will be). Currently, they are doing extensive research on health, healing, and wellness initiatives around the country and gathering information on principles, guidelines, and operating procedures. All recommendations are welcome. In the meantime, Whole Note is working on designating space at the Cass Corridor Commons (C3) and offering select services.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that a “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki was rediscovered by a Japanese man, Dr. Mikai Usui. Its history is ancient and the concepts are present in several cultures.
While individual treatments will always be available, Whole Note will also be offering group Reiki healing in a shared, community space. Reiki Thursdays will be a collective healing space because we are inspired to heal together. Reiki Thursdays will be offered in one large room with individual treatment areas set-up for separate treatments. Stay tuned for more information.
Individual or group Reiki treatments can be scheduled by emailing: Reikithursdays@gmail.com.
Healing Belly Dance
Belly Dance classes are offered on Monday, Friday and Saturday. They are taught with a focus on empowering women to connect with their brightest self. Basic Belly Dance techniques are taught by using North African rhythms and encourage each woman to accept her body just as it is. This Belly Dance is for all female identified people.
