I’ve always wanted to open a healing arts center. Even before I was a counselor, I wanted to bring an assortment of holistic practitioners together to offer a wide variety of healing opportunities. Several years ago I started a virtual healing center, Colorado Holistic Healing, an online referral source. Last year, I finally got my chance to create a healing arts center in a wing of the Lutheran church I attend.
The Healing Arts Center was dedicated on October 19th, 2014. The vision for the center came as a result of a summer of discernment by the members of St. Andrew, the cleaning out of old classrooms, and a simple conversation over lunch. What has transpired since then has been remarkable.
Three rooms and the hall were cleaned out and freshened with new paint, furniture, pictures and other decorations. We started with two offices and a waiting room. I moved my office from Westminster and we welcomed Marsha Clark who offers massage therapy. In February we held our first Healing Arts Fair with a wonderful turnout! Since then we have had many requests to use our space for ongoing groups and classes including WINGS, the SoulCollage® Facilitator’s training, and The Creative Life Center, who offers a variety of personal development programs. It seems that the more people who use the space, the more people who want to use the space. The energy in the hall is wonderful!
This summer we worked on expanding the center moving Marsha across the hall. We updated the conference room creating a “multi-purpose” room that can be used for a waiting room, small groups, and meetings. We also moved the musicians to the main office which left us with two more spaces to rent to practitioners.
On November 1st Gayle Fowler, a Reiki master will move in to one of the offices offering Reiki energy sessions. The second available office has been set up as an energy healing room to be rented to multiple practitioners offering a variety of gifts from reflexology, acupuncture, Reiki, and other types of health and healing modalities. If you know someone looking for space in Arvada, CO have them contact me.
It’s just now October and people are already calling to reserve space for 2016. On October 24th we will welcome world-renowned author, teacher, practitioner, and healer, Dr. Steven Farmer, for a full day to learn about developing our intuition. What an exciting year this has been and I look forward to the coming year and all of the exciting things it will offer. I’m honored to be a part of such a wonderful endeavor and vision as we move forward.
