The Room at Meadowbrook will host an open house from 5 to 8 p.m. on June 25 to celebrate its new facility, located on the grounds of its partner organization, Meadowbrook Animal Healing, in Ottsville.
This family-friendly event is open to the community. Locals are encouraged to drop by, rain or shine, to enjoy food and music, enter the raffle, pick up free class passes and walk through the flower gardens to visit with the horse, PJ goats and other animals who live onsite. Resident “Room” instructors Diane Alex, Erin Range, Tracy McGovern, Joanna Chodorowska, Sharon Cristofalo, Lisa Potts and Michelle McInnis will be onsite to meet prospective and current students.
The Room was developed by Sue Walski and Lyn Hicks as a place for the healing and expressive arts for both people and animals in a peaceful, inspired setting. The program calendar includes classes and workshops elaborating on the benefits of movement and creativity, and features healing modalities such as aharaj yoga, dance, yoga, tai chi, feminine health workshops, reflexology, qigong, reiki and jin shin jyutsu for all levels of awareness.
“We see this as a healing space. It’s a place for people to come and take classes, and hopefully be inspired to use the space to hold their own programs and workshops as time goes on,” says Walski, a veterinarian and animal holistic healing practitioner who will teach classes on holistic pet care.
Hicks, a women’s empowerment educator and author, describes The Room this way: “Our goal is to educate the path to personal power and freedom through the healing and expressive arts for people and animals, so they may find more health, vitality and well-being for themselves and their families.” The Room is available to all that are inspired to educate and share about their art of healing.
