Workshops

Join us Every Thursday at 7:30pm for CosmoEnergy Group Healing Sessions
with Yulia Abreu

Cosmic Energy healing, known as “Cosmoenergy,“ uses the cosmic energy fields of different frequencies and characteristics that exist in the Universe. Recognized by the World Health Organization of the United Nations. the method of Cosmoenergy happens in the following way: During the cosmic energy healing session, the Cosmoenergy healer “opens” and transmits the cosmic energy channels to the subtle body of a person (the non-physical body which overlays the physical body) while harmonizing and balancing the person’s chakras (the energy centers along the central meridian of the body which balance, store and distribute the energies of life through the physical body) and removing the blockages and negative energy that has accumulated in the person’s body. The channeled cosmic energies wash over and penetrate the physical and subtle bodies and consciousness of the person working towards gradual dissolvent of negative energy. Cosmoenergy fields are boundless and inexhaustible and possess cleansing, medicinal and protective properties.
Cost: $15.  No reservations needed.  Cash payment please.
