In times of transition and when recovering from any kind of trauma, taking even 20 minutes to reconnect with your surroundings and open up the flow of energy centres in your body can have profound healing benefits.
The inspiration for Women’s Guided Meditation was to offer tools to help any woman start the process of getting grounded and balanced in the present moment.
“We have a desire to share tools with the wider community of women in the Valley,” says Catherine Dextrase.
The Women’s Guided Meditation group has been running since the spring and opened recently to the wider community. Dextrase has also volunteered at the Nursing Centre’s ongoing chronic pain group. She offers these sessions with Lucia Brodie the second Tuesday of each month at the Comox Valley Nursing Centre at 615 10th St. in Courtenay from 1 to 2 p.m.
Lucia is not shy of lending a helping hand and spends time at the hospital every month providing healing touch sessions for those in need.
This women’s group provides a gentle healing environment at no charge with support in getting your energy centres to become more balanced for your highest good. The meditation is done in a chair.
The CV Nursing Centre reopens at 1 p.m. from lunchtime break, and the women’s group starts as promply as it can. Practitioners will provide an energy balancing session to as many participants as possible in the time given, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
