Newsletter – July 2008

                                                                       Happy Independence Day


      Keith and I devote our energy, emotionally spiritually and physically, to make sure everything is done with impeccability and integrity at The HART Center. We are in the middle of renovations that are taking THC to the next aesthetic level.

     Jafar Casurella is a wonderful assset. We are so grateful to Universe for him showing up at just the right time to participate in the transformation.

     The new treatment room is restructured from one small room to two combined rooms. We took out the wall between and now it is really spacious and beautiful. Come experience a massage or Reiki session to feel the energy that pulsates in that sacred space. It’s really special. We currently have two massage student externs from Concorde Career College and there are two Wednesday night volunteer Reiki practitioners who may start their private practice at THC in the very near future.

     My office is larger and can accomodate 7 people for acupuncture detoxification with really comfortable chairs chairs to get completely relax during the session. We had a donation from someone in the community who had chairs exactly like those in my office to bring it up to six lay-backs. I wish Cynthia was here to remind me of the name of those types of chairs… We have another small office for University Interns. Currently we are supervising one student from Christian Brothers Univeristy and another is coming on board in the Fall from the University of Memphis. The intern office is very pretty and has a view outside.

     The altar room is magnificent. Still full of beautiful icons that folks have brought and left behind to remind others of their faiths and what that represents to each person who recognizes them. It is so neat to look at all the different images and to know that each one matters to someone who walks through the front door.

     With that said, The HART Center is a great place offers such a clear energy field to those who come to experience the available services. Please take a minute to drop by for Open HART Night or Meditation or T’ai Chi or Yoga. Check the web site calendar and get the times of the events and join us as we walk together this happy road of destiny. The green blocks on the calendar are love offfering events for our beloved community.  Love Always in All Ways Jane
