The Brown Bag on 9/25/12 was entitled Women as Healers. This Brown Bag was particularly special because Sandy Garner, who is the mother of the Center’s Program Assistant, Kimmie Garner, hosted it. Sandy is a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner. She gave a complete history of women as healers, explained the healing technique, “Healing Touch, and she also talked about her efforts to combine Western medicine and energy healing at a North Carolina hospital. A highlight of this Brown Bag was learning about the Chakra, which are seven primary human energy centers in our bodies.
There is a Crown Chakra (top of head), Third Eye Chakra (center of forehead), Throat Chakra (throat area), Heart Chakra (center of chest), Solar Plexus Chakra (above navel below chest), Sacral Chakra (between navel and genitals), and Root Chakra (base of spine). All of these centers have energy flowing through them if they are fine-tuned and working correctly. Sandy taught us simple and easy ways to fine-tune your Chakra and it consists of various meditation poses to really focus and relieve pain and anxiety.
Another highlight was hearing a story about a woman who was placed into a medically induced coma for a dangerous surgery and when she was taken out of that coma she could recite word for word conversations that took place between the doctors and nurses! I always get chills when I hear remarkable stories like this one. It just teaches us that there are so many mysteries in life and that we should be open-minded and tolerant of things we sometimes cannot explain. I stayed after the Brown Bag and a few people and I asked to have our energies read with her pendulum. It was an eye-opening experience because the pendulum would actually stop and have virtually no movement if something was wrong or off with your Chakra. Sandy gladly did a tune-up for those who needed it and it was inspiring to watch. I highly suggest that everyone watch the Brown Bag and even do some research about your own Chakras. Have a great break!
