The WYC remains an oasis of peace and stillness —just as it always has been— As this oasis moves beyond its walls and into all of our homes, we are watching something powerful and present within ourselves deepen and grow. Keeping ourselves strong and grounded in practices, we are learning as a community that the essential love that connects us and extends into the larger community, is beyond time and space… it knows no distance. Our practices and teachings have always helped stabilize us in our connection to true self. It seems that now, in this challenging and reflective time, there is a deeper possibility, not only within ourselves but for all people everywhere, to uplift the inner climate of the human family.
April has arrived. The cherry, apple and magnolia trees are blooming in all their glory in this hauntingly quiet city. We are extending our sense of sheltering together out to the extended community, as many of you now live all over our country.
In addition to our usual classes and other programs, we are offering:
— Daily Meditation for all
— Discounted Hatha classes as gifts for those of us financially affected or in need of the WYC's quieting atmosphere
— Long distance energy healing sessions from our Reiki healers to those who need distant healing right now
Details on these offerings below.

The format will be simple—a gentle guided journey inward. You will need a comfortable seat, on a chair or on the floor, and the props you need to sit upright effortlessly. If need be, alert your family that you will be tucked away in a still place in the house, away from distractions.
It is a special heightened time in which we can create a haven, a sanctuary for ourselves in our own homes, a place of peace and presence.
We are excited to be able to expand and include this free daily offering, It is for our community and for anyone you wish to bring to it. There will be enough instruction for new comers to support their easeful movement into meditation.

A Reiki Healing Circle is a gathering of Reiki practitioners for the express purpose of practicing Reiki, on themselves and on each other, and asking questions about their practice and about Reiki in general. These particular gatherings will focus on Offering Distant healing, a distinct and powerful part of Reiki practice. In this Circle, everyone gets an opportunity to try it out for themselves in the company of the community.
During this crisis, all fees will be waived for practitioners.
