Toxic Trespassers

Do you wish to fight back and reclaim your health? Increase your awareness and find out what you can do naturally to win the 'battle of the chemicals'. Join us at the upcoming class on Sat., March 14th at 1 to 3 PM at the Wellness Center, 228 E St., Salida. Class facilitator is Elayna. Sponsored by The Gathering PlaceA Center For Wellness.

Reiki Level 3A - Master Therapist Level +

for Personal Growth & Development

* Offered by Appointment *

The Phoenix Nest Reiki & Wellness Center

228 E. St., Salida, SO

A One-Day Intensive leading into the

Internship for the Master Teachers Level of Reiki.

Learn to work with the Masters Level energy to speed-up your personal rate of growth & development. You will be shown how to facilitate "booster attunements" to allow your family, friends, and clients to work with the Reiki energy for a very limited time (24-48 hours) ... this is a great way to assist clients to speed up their clearing and balancing processes. They can have their own "hot little hands" to experience Reiki for themselves. Learn to charge crystals, healing baskets, prayer circles and much more. This is the first step for those Reiki pracitioners who feel they may wish to become Reiki teachers. This is a great energetic step for all body workers and other therapists - it allows your work to reach a deeper level for your clients.

Requirements for the Class: Reiki Level I & II. Proof of achievement Level by seeing your Certificates. You must have worked with your Level II for a period of 1-year. Also, this class is subject to a personal interview with the Reiki Masters teaching the class. The successful student for Reiki 3A will work with the The Gathering Place Masters in an Internship Program of approx. one-year before going forward into the full responsibilites of the Reiki Master Teacher. Going forward into the full teaching position is NOT a requirement of taking Reiki 3A for yourself!

Call The Center for an Interview: 719-239-1397 or 719-539-4561



Diets Don't Work For Me!

Are you seeking optimal health and balance in your life and relationships?   Ever wonder why the diet that works so well for your friend doesn't work for you?   Because you have one of 25 different body types with unique needs.  Now, discover your body type and regain control of your health and wellness.  Combine that with a complete "dowsing-for health" and personal /emotional release work and begin your Life as you were designed to live it. Call Elayna today for your personal appointment:  The Phoenix Nest Wellness Center   719-539-4561.  You may also email:

Are You Challenged by an 'Out-of-Ease' Body Discomfort?

You are a Body-Mind-Spirit wonderfully intricate person. All of 'You' operates on frequency - different rates of vibration. Each organ, each cell, eack bacteria and virus have a unique vibrational signature. We become ill when these frequencies are out-of-balance. We even eventually manifest what is called 'Transformative Illness Patterns' when we ignore the inner nudges to make changes in our lives. These nudges become the 2x4's when we do not address the underlying issues (think cancer, auto-immune diseases, etc.). You can return to harmony and balance by addressing these frequency issues. To learn more about these therapy modalities (Reiki, MRS mat, and Quantum Frequency Energetics), please call The Phoenix Wellness Center, 719-539-4561 or email:
