Students are encouraged to use a variety of media available to them, such as photos, paintings, audiotapes, videotapes, journals, or skits, to portray their –ISM Project. Due to the professional nature of this project, we will provide a grant up to $500 commensurate with project needs to offset the cost.

Reiki is a 2500 year old Tibetan healing art using the laying of hands. It is a very gentle healing method that combines touch, meditation and breathing to re-align and remove blocks in our energy centers and meridians. The reiki practitioner functions as a channel through which universal life force can blend with our individual life force and restore balance to our body, mind and spirit. Reiki is great for reducing stress, taking away aches and pains, reducing side effects for medications, boosting the immune system and speeding up the healing process.

Join our Community Circle on Reiki Tuesdays in November where we will offer an opportunity to experience a sample of reiki in a group setting through a guided meditation, an energy circle and a mini session in a chair. You can sign up for one or all of the sessions, but an RSVP for each is required here: Questions? Contact Malin Tybahl at Beginners always welcome!
