Winter Offerings



Firstly, I want to thank everyone who donated items to the family that was designated to The Healing Center for the Adopt-a-Family program through Beverly Bootstraps. Over $200 worth of items were donated to the family! Hopefully their holiday will be a little brighter as a result.

This winter The Healing Center has some exciting offerings! Joanna Scaparotti gets things started with her mini-retreat at the end of the month, and January marks the beginning of the monthly Reiki share, the first Reiki 1 course of the year, and a new weekly open meditation. Come take advantage of these great opportunities to learn, recharge, and renew yourself!

Recover from the Holidays
Mini Retreat on Dec 27th with Joanna Scaparotti

Give yourself some TLC! Does the holiday season feel stressful, exhausting, overwhelming? Do you end up feeling run down when it’s over? This time of year can be so tough physically and emotionally. The days are short, and the nights are long and dark. We’re often very busy with commitments and shopping, and we end up exhausted, drained, or run down. Be kind to yourself. Join Joanna Scaparotti for a mini-retreat to recenter and recharge before the new year. The retreat will include hot tea and light refreshments, a soothing guided meditation, Reiki, and the opportunity to reconnect with yourself. Bring a journal and wear comfy clothes. Sunday December 27th 5-7pm. Registration: $20. Open to all. At The Healing Center’s new location: 83 Cabot Street! RSVP to

Monthly Reiki Share

Starting in January 2016, join us every first Tuesday of the month, 6:00pm-7:30pm for a Reiki share! Reiki practitioners of all levels and lineages are welcome. The suggested fee is $5, plus an item to donate to the local food pantry. Come share and receive some Reiki, enjoy the positive company of others, and start your month off in a relaxing and centered way. For more information, contact Katherine.

Reiki Level 1 Course

Are you interested in learning more about the healing energy work of Reiki, and incorporating it into your life?
This first level course teaches the history and principles of Reiki, and focuses on self-care as well as giving Reiki to others (including people, places, pets, even plants!). You will learn the benefits Reiki has to offer, discover how to apply them to your own life, and acquire the ability to facilitate your own spiritual and personal growth.
Reiki 1 is taught in a weekly 60 minute class, over the period of 6 weeks on Sundays. Cost is $165, to be paid in full at the first class. (Please inquire about a payment plan if needed!) The next class starts in January 2016: All classes are held 1:00pm-2:00pm
1/3, 1/10, 1/17, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7
For more information, or to secure your spot, contact Katherine.

Open Meditation

Starting in January, The Healing Center will be open every Thursday 7:00pm-8:00pm for an open meditation. Anyone is welcome to come on these designated nights and enjoy the safe, warm, and inviting space to practice their own self-meditation. Quiet, calming music will be played, and water and mats will be available if you do not bring your own. Come for the full hour, or stay for 10 minutes! Cost is $5 (and optional but encouraged item to donate to the food pantry.) Please RSVP to Katherine before each meditation, as a greater number of attendees will require setup and use of the larger space within THC.

In addition to these great offerings, private Reiki sessions are always available as well! Please email me at to set up an appointment for your personalized 30 or 60 minute session. I hope to see many of you in the new year!

Enjoy your holidays!
