Instructor Bios:

Darlene Bailey has studied and practiced meditation for 40 years. She is a certified Reiki Master teacher, and has been practicing healing arts since 1979. She is a Matrix Energetics practitioner and offers remote viewing sessions for spiritual guidance, connection and healing. Darlene shares many years of experience during private sessions with clients. She is clairsentient and is guided by her constant Angelic companions who have been with her all her life including Mother Mary, and Paramahansa Yogananda. Darlene has lectured at the Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Dartmouth College, and local wellness events.

Quita Davis has been practicing Transcendental Meditation for 44 years and was certified as a teacher of the TM technique in 1975. In 1978 she completed the TM-Sidhi program, which trains you to think and act from the source of thought and pure consciousness, a silent and powerful level of the mind.

Quita has spent the last 34 years exploring holistic healing modalities after her son was diagnosed with a rare eye condition for which there was no treatment.  She has been trained in Reiki, the Metamorphic Technique (a simple yet profound approach to growth, transformation and personal development) and has completed the intermediate level of Light Language (combining physics, sacred geometry, and light, for healing and manifestation.)  She was certified as a Matrix Energetics practitioner in 2008.

Quita began speaking in Light Language during a three month advanced meditation course in 1977.  Light Language is spoken from the space of the heart and is a beautiful form of sound healing using voice and mudras. People feel the vibration of love, healing and otherworldly intelligence pouring forth into this reality. She offers private and group Light Language sessions.

Christine Jandreau has been on an amazing journey for 35+ years.  Experiencing an open path of learning and growth, from meditation and sensory perception to hands on techniques, she is happiest when helping clients relax, breathe, and tap into their own individual expression of unique potential.

As a certified Reiki Master, and practitioner of Matrix Energetics, she has assisted with teaching a Reiki class for children, and providing services to Dartmouth College students, as well as local wellness events.

With the love and support of her physical family, etheric family and celestial family, Christine continues to marvel at the ever evolving shape of her path, trusting that it unfolds as needed, and always with love.

No experience necessary. All abilities. Ages 12 and up are welcome. Donation based workshop ($10 recommendation).

Bio: Julie Püttgen, MFA, is an artist and a meditation teacher, which turn out not to be such different things. Both rely on the ability to trust in the moment, and to let go of what ought to be, in favor of what is. She has taught and exhibited widely, including at Dartmouth College, the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, and AVA; and is currently in training in the MA Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Goddard College, with a concentration in Expressive Arts Therapy. Her work is online at www.108namesofnow.com.
