Ancient Healing: An Evening of Acupuncture and Shamanic Healing

Thursday, September 20, 6-7:30pm
Registration: $65

Join Katie Oberlin, shamanic healing practitioner, and Mari Stecker, licensed acupuncturist, for a special evening of healing in preparation for the autumn equinox.

In both Traditional Chinese Medicine and shamanism, autumn is a time to celebrate the harvest. This pertains to crops as well as other things that we grow and nourish such as ideas, dreams, relationships, our bodies, and the fruits of our labors.

It is also a time of change as the living world begins to wind down and we reflect inward on our life’s path. There is great potential for healing as we release what no longer serves.

This event is sure to be a unique opportunity to experience the ancient traditions of acupuncture and shamanic healing blended into an evening of relaxation and renewal.

After a shamanic opening ceremony, participants will receive an acupuncture treatment to encourage deep relaxation. The evening will continue with other features of shamanism including healing songs, drumming and other energetic clearing and alignment techniques. We’ll end the evening with a closing ceremony and time for integration to support moving forward with health, vitality and gratitude.

You will be lying on yoga mats so please bring a pillow and blanket to ensure your comfort.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Registration online only.

  • When Your Female Sex Drive Is Circling The Drain

    I don’t mean to catch you mid-croissant on this topic, but it may have recently dawned on you that your sex drive is not what it was when you were younger. In fact, when you think about it, maybe you never had much of a sex drive at all, no matter which of your decades you happen to be in now. Straight or gay, maybe Read More

  • Case Study: High Blood Pressure

    Phyllis B. was a longtime patient of mine whose medical problems were happily under control and who usually came in only for annual check-ups. As I’d just seen her last month, I expected today’s visit meant some new problem had emerged. “I’m here for Kirk,” she began. I’d only met her husband once, years earlier. An accountant, or bookkeeper, or something like that, I remembered. Read More

  • Are Lifestyle Changes Impossible?

    Many years ago, I became exhausted dealing with a friend who ignored my advice on living a healthy lifestyle. His attitude toward exercise was similar to Oscar Wilde’s “I often take exercise. Why only yesterday I had breakfast in bed.” His attitude toward food, especially restaurant food, was that he didn’t care much about quality as long as the portions were huge. We agreed early Read More
