Private and Group Healing Sessions
Harry Pepper: Healing Sessions
Consciousness Healing recognizes the profound opportunity for healing and learning that occurs when an individual enters into a non-ordinary or heightened state of consciousness. In this healing session, (which can be done individually or in a group session) the participant takes the spiritual journey out of the ordinary state of consciousness using a variety of strategies and techniques chosen to address the specific needs of the unique individual. These techniques are utilized, in conjunction with the power of intention, to help the participant access his or her own natural power to heal. The Consciousness Healing approach has been shown to be particularly helpful in addressing self-defeating habits and negative life patterns and especially helpful for those seeking a way to get ?unstuck? in their lives. The specific strategies and techniques used in a given session may include: visualization strategies, Gestalt techniques, Jungian concepts, Psychodrama, Reality Creation Technology, Voice Dialogue Techniques, energy work, and spiritual journey work.
Jim Gagnon: Didgeridoo lessons, throat singing lessons, and private massage and sound therapy sessions.
In a massage and sound therapy session, you will remain fully clothed in a massage chair, and a didgeridoo will be played over your back. The vibrations will relax and rejuvenate you! Combined with massage, reiki, and your own intentions, you will have a deep and profound experience that will greatly enhance your time at the Rhythm Renewal. Sessions available for 30 or 60 minutes. Highly recommended!
Jim is a graduate of the Cayce Reilly School of Massage, and has been a storyteller and musician for over 15 years. www.dreamtimeproject.com

Tina Stroh: Private Yoga Lessons
I am happy to offer private yoga sessions (small group or individual) half hour or hour longs. Half hour might be great for folks who just want to get their stretch on! Individual instruction is the way yoga was originally taught.
Tina has been practicing yoga since 1987 and has traveled to India 3 times. More importantly she has been to the Rhythm Renewal 2 yrs in a row so...she has a deep knowledge of all of the walking and drumming and eating! Tina will help you learn to stretch and renew your tired arms, hands, and back. A private session is individualized for your body and specific concerns. It?s like giving yourself some bodywork that you can take home with you and do whenever you like! For the experienced yoga practitioner, beginner, or someone with specific injuries or health concerns it is very beneficial to have the one on one attention and guidance to give you an opportunity to ask questions and learn how to deepen into poses that have been troublesome or challenging. http://www.justplainyoga.com
