Meditation has numerous benefits and its importance cannot be emphasized enough! However, the key is to find the right type of meditation for YOU, and/or making time for a meditation practice — whether you know how to meditate or not. The Enlightened Soul Center has several opportunities that can address these needs:
HIGHEST GUIDE MEDITATION CIRCLE with Mari Ziolkowski, Ph.D.: Need some quiet time to connect with inner guidance? Curious about the power of meditating in a group? Want to assist in the planetary consciousness shift? This drop-in group starts with a guided invocation calling in our highest spiritual guides (such as Spirit Guides/Angels/Ancestors), followed by 12 minutes of silent meditation (focused on the breath), with time afterwards for sharing.
MEDITATION YOUR WAY! CLASSES with Sue Poletti: Meditation comes in 100’s of forms! It's not about stopping the mind, it’s about redirecting our thoughts through deep relaxation and focus. In these classes, you will: understand the critical importance that the mind has in the meditation process, learn one new form of mediation each week to find the technique that could work for you, and walk away with a better understanding of how important your thoughts really are to meditation and to living a joy-filled life.
Reiki Certification Classes with Jenny LaFeldt, RMT
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. "Rei" means "Universal Life Force" and "Ki" means "energy" (like chi or qi).
Reiki is now sanctioned to be practiced in many hospitals and clinics, including in Michigan. The Usui form of Reiki is the most well-known version, which was given to Master Mikao Usui when he meditated on Mt. Kurama and had a mystical experience on the 21st day of a fast there in 1922. Because of conditions in Japan after World War II and the fact that Mrs. Hawaya Takata had brought Usui Reiki to the West, this form became the predominate form of Reiki practiced throughout the world. Tina Bowman teaches Usui Holy Fire Reiki certification classes at ESC.
William Rand of Southfield, MI is an internationally recognized Reiki expert and the originator of the Usui/Tibetan system of Reiki, which he developed in 1989. In 1995, with the help of some of his students, he developed the Karuna Reiki® system of healing. In January 2014 he introduced the Holy Fire® system of Reiki which was upgraded to Holy Fire® II in November 2015 and then upgraded to Holy Fire® III in September, 2018.
Tarot reading is the practice of divining wisdom and guidance through a specific spread (or layout) of Tarot cards. One does not have to be a psychic to give Tarot readings, but the cards are a good instrument to get in touch with and use one's intuition to receive messages, for yourself or another. The cards are meant to provide insight into the innermost truths of your higher self and an evolved awareness of what you already know deep within.
The exact origin of the Tarot is unknown, but there are documented references of Tarot card use back to fourteenth-century Europe, starting as a deck for card games. The Tarot has been used for divination, in the basic form we know today, since the beginning of the seventeenth century. The Rider-Waite deck (pictured here) is one of the oldest and most widely used decks, with original artwork dating back to the early 1900s. However, hundreds of decks with various themes have been created since then.
What constitutes a Tarot deck (as opposed to an Oracle deck) is that there are 78 cards in specific categories. There are 22 cards of the Major Arcana, which deal with life's greater themes, align with the milestones of life’s story or The Hero’s Journey (starting with The Fool and ending with The World). In this sense, the cards of the Major Arcana represent the 22 inevitable phases or passages of every journey, which we’ll all encounter during our lives. The 56 cards of the Minor Arcana deal with lesser secrets by symbolizing daily aspects of life, giving insight into our challenges, talents, opportunities, and experience of ups and downs.
There are several people who teach Tarot through the Enlightened Soul Center, either in person or on Zoom:
