Event Dates & Happenings



Salida Compassion Club: Meets on Thurs. evenings at 7pm to explore how to be prosperous and happy. Contact Stacey Joslin for directions to the meetings at Carol's condo in Salida: Check out their Facebook page here. Join them on August 3rd for their next Thoughtstorm conversation.

The Salida Compassion Club was founded by Stacey Joslin for the intention of bringing more peace and awareness to the people of the Arkansas Valley and surrounding areas. During the meetings we explore various important topics through Thoughtstorm conversations, which inspire connection with others, insights, creativity and problem solving. By connecting with others, we are better able to understand ourselves and explore what it is that we have to contribute to the world. The basis of this group is practicing admirable qualities such as respect, kindness, listening, sharing and the willingness to grow personally and as a group.

Hands of Light

REIKI SHARING Afternoon - Last Sunday of each Month

Sunday, 2PM for 33 Minutes of Quiet & Meditation

Come join us as we dedicate 33 minutes to sending Reiki Universal Life Energy to everyone and "All-Our-Relations". Dedicate 33 minutes on the last Sunday of each month beginning at 2PM MST to sit in quiet and meditation. Send Reiki energy absentee to the whole Reiki Family and "All-Our-Relations" - we are now spread out into many different locations - and to the Reiki Healing Basket. Use a crystal, hold it in your hands and set your intent to have it represent all of your Reiki Family, Mother Earth, and everyone and everything in the Reiki Healing Basket. Charge your crystal with the Reiki Symbols if you are Reiki Level 2 or above. We use "the sandwich": Power symbol, Absentee symbol, Mental-Emotional-Addictive symbol - Power symbol. Then add: " You are free to accept or reject this Reiki Energy. It is sent in Unconditional Love". If you are at Level 1, then please hold your crystal and set your intent to send the Reiki Energy in Love. Reiki will go where it is needed; you are not in charge - it is Universal Life Energy - it knows where it is needed and will go and balance / harmonize the situation calling for attention. Feel our whole Reiki Family joining you for these precious 33 minutes of meditation and Reiki Energy.

* We Are All ONE! You Are Loved Unconditionally by Spirit / Creator. *



Reiki Healing Basket: Please send names of people you wish Reiki Healing Energy sent to and / or situations that could use Reiki Healing Energy. These are placed into the Basket and will remain there for one year. Remember, we are not to judge where or how the Reiki Energy is used. It is always for the highest and best good of the individual and / or situation. We are not in charge; Spirit and their Higher Self is in charge. Send the Reiki Energy, release any idea of how it is to be used. Reiki always goes where it is needed the exceptions! The Basket contains at all times: a globe of Mother Earth, feathers to represent our winded friends, a Teddy Bear for our furry friends, 2 dolls for our HU-mans, and crystals for our mineral kingdom friends.

for Personal Growth & Development

* Offered by Appointment *

The Gathering Place...A Center For Wellness

Salida, CO

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!

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:
