From 10/5/2015:

Nice to meet you!

For those that are not already aware, I have taken over the reigns of The Healing Center from Joanna. I am so happy to announce that THC will remain in Beverly, at 83 Cabot Street. Within the next couple of weeks I will be planning a casual “open house” event to allow everyone to stop by and see the space, become familiar with it’s new location, and hopefully leave/pick up a little positive energy there. I want to briefly share how this wonderful place came to be mine.

On August 10th of this year, my world as I knew it changed. I learned something that altered my life in endless ways. It was only a few hours into that emotional trauma that I was suddenly overcome with thoughts of The Healing Center, and whether or not Joannawas still trying to find a buyer. I decided to follow where my mind led me. I contacted Joanna via email and waited to hear that she had already sold it, or changed her mind, or something else that would force me to forget about the whole thing. Instead, she informed me that her original buyer had fallen through, leaving The Healing Center still available. From there I began the journey into business ownership.

This incredible opportunity presented itself to me at a time when I truly needed to finally focus my energy elsewhere: somewhere that would benefit others and help me heal in the process. I hope to offer the same gentle presence and positivity that Joanna maintained these past several years. This is the beginning of a new era for both The Healing Center and myself, and I look forward to sharing my experiences and learning from all of you along the way.

I so appreciate the patience granted to me as I continue to update the website and other social media sites. Please stay tuned for information about other offerings and practitioners that are soon to come!

GUIDED METTA MEDITATION PRACTICE with Christine Eaton, RM and Meditation Teacher on Thursday evenings: 6:30-7:30pm.  Thursdays 6:30-7:30pm (Arrive by 6:25), Donation only.   Metta is a form of mindfulness practice works as compassion builder. We bring to mind a series of individuals (our self, someone easy to love, a neutral person, and a challenging person in our lives). The meditation focuses on sending each of these people “metta” or as it’s known in English, loving kindness. The way we do that is by creating a group mantra which changes each week. It might be something like, “May you have peace, May you have understanding, May you be willing to learn”, … Christine  offers Reiki to each person during the meditation which helps when some of these become particularly challenging to process. The idea is that over time this practice helps us want to take better care of ourselves and diffuses negative reactions when we’re “lit up” or triggered by difficult people. RSVP by emailing or calling/texting Christine at 508-934-6040 or Beginners are welcome and encouraged! Donations accepted.

           Our apologies for so many emails in your mailbox today.  Use the updated contact links below.  

           Happy May!  The beginning of wonderful weather and beautiful flowers!  New beginnings – this is the theme for all of us here at The Healing Center this spring!  Beth is celebrating a new grandson, Joanna is starting a new job in Boston, Jill is completing her Masters program in Energy Medicine, and Christine is furthering her education in Mindfulness Studies.

This will be in lieu of receiving emails from “The Healing Center”.

Being your best self will change the world, starting with those closest to you.
