It just feels so good to feel good, yes?
That is really what Mind/body classes and our healing-shares are all about. Many of us start in a not-too-good-feeling place but we just keep getting a little better and a little better. Sometimes we “fall off the wagon,” but the great thing is we serve to support each other to get back on and stay on. Those of us who attend are inspired by the tremendous variety of the Universe. We are all so unique, and what works for me will not necessarily work for anyone else. We keep the doors open for expansion and growth and are inspired to try new ways to feel good and get healthy. Each week we meditate together and breathe together, and that is never a bad thing! We love meeting new and interesting people.
These classes are especially good for people who have a chronic condition or pain that has reached a certain plateau of improvement. You may want to feel better than you do right now, but do not have the motivation or inspiration to move beyond your current level of wellness.
As we explore various topics which engage the mind and body, we begin a movement and a shift in perspective. We can’t help but feel relief. With the benefit of group we stay focused on the commitments we make to ourselves. The synergy of the group is like grace. It helps to inspire and motivate us. It feels like fun, rather than work. Regular participants attain a deep sense of well-being. We respect where you are, and welcome you in whatever shape you are.
I look forward to meeting you.

February 11, 2016: Reiki Healing Circle
The Reiki circle is a great way to spend a healing evening. Reiki is an amazingly simple technique to learn; we all know it inherently. The energy “stream” of Reiki is made available during an attunement process in which the initiate is aligned with the Reiki “stream” of energy. Reiki allows practitioners to tap into this unlimited supply of “life force energy.”For tonight’s meetup, no previous experience is necessary. We will start at 6:00. If you are late, just come in, quiet yourself and join one of the rooms.
Suggested donation: $5 – $20
Reiki Level II Sunday February 7 and 21 (Both classes are required for certification)
If you want to expand your practice of Reiki to those beyond your family, you should consider Level II Attunement.

Here’s what folks are saying about Jeanette’s groups and classes:
Jeanette has a unique set of skills and knowledge based on actual experience as a counselor and a life-long dedication of research on a wide variety of methods proven to work and heal the body, mind and spirit. This meet-up was very enlightening and found it refreshing she combined many different ways of understanding the body and mind through spirit to arrive at a way to empower each individual on their path to healing. Joanne, Portland, OR
This class is like the energizer bunny, it just keeps on GIVING! Jeanette’s warm and kind heart embrace all & her meetings provide a welcoming healing place for everyone in all stages of one’s healing journey. Always allowing everyone attending to gain more depth to their own spirituality through her teachings & leave feeling a whole lot better! Rose, Portland, OR
Jeanette’s guided imagery-meditations are very powerful, and I experienced first hand the benefits of this through her beautiful voice as I begin to easily go inward into my own journey.
It is obvious that she generously desires to share with others the peace and well-being that comes from all the years of experience working with others, her own healing journey, and vast knowledge learned throughout all her years of being a student and a teacher/guide. Her humor always adds such lightheartedness to her classes, making them fun too! There always was a comfort in her group/classes that allowed me to be myself, and to let my spirit release whatever I was working on at the moment in a very supportive & non-judgemental way. These are just a few of the wonderful gifts Jeanette is endowed with! Rose, Vancouver, WA
Jeanette is gifted. There was much bliss in the room . . . . Thanks for being willing to be where we all seemed to be! Sheryl, Portland, OR
This is a great group. It gives a good round experience of a variety of holistic practices. I highly recommend this group. Patrick, Portland, OR
Jeanette is so full of love life and joy. It warms my heart to be there. I feel like I am a brighter person when I leave. Thank you Jeanette. You have a golden soul. Thank you for openly sharing your wonderful knowledge with us. Heather, Damascus, OR
If you would like to learn more about caring for yourself and others in a natural way, this group is for you. Rosemary, Portland, OR
Great way to pick up easy self-care tips and learn new concepts of healing. Natalie, Portland, OR
This is a great group to learn ways to work on the journey toward wholeness and restore joy. Joanne, Portland, OR
