Hypnosis also helps with long lasting problems, such as lack of confidence, grief or relationship issues.

Julia places crystals and gemstones on and around the body to align the chakras and facilitate energy movement. Crystals and gemstones help clear blockages and focus positive benefits.

Information can range from advice about physical needs to guidance from spiritual sources to visions from your past lives. This session is suitable for anyone in any state of health.

By accessing specific points on the hands and feet with a DMI measuring device, a graphic report will be generated that can be used to educate you about which organ systems are excessive or deficient in energy, if there is an imbalance between the right and left side of the body in energy performance for a specific organ, or if there is a total body energy efficiency.

Keiichiro Kita

Harmonic Massage with Healing Energy Touch - $250/person, 90 min.
The Peace Machine is a revolutionary tool that converts soothing low frequency musical sound waves into vibrations that promote mental, physical and emotional health. In this session your specific needs will be addressed.

This nurturing and non-invasive modality topically administers deeply soothing sounds to various parts of the body. Simultaneously, these frequencies are experienced as music by the ear and received at a cellular level through the auditory system. These frequencies stimulate harmonic resonance throughout the body and brain to promote an internal environment that fosters healing. Energy moves as vibrations in the form of waves occurring at different frequencies. Each organ resonates at a particular frequency; when the organs are out of balance, the frequencies are no longer in harmony. As a result, a discordant sound is produced. In the human body, this discordance in the organs results in disease. The Kita Biosonic Peace Machine is designed to reestablish and maintain a harmonic resonance that creates peace and well-being in mind and body.

Food, remedies and lifestyle will be addressed for each participant.

Each person will complete a one page health history form that Warren will review prior to the session, and your questions will be answered at the meeting.

There isn't one detail of cooking that doesn’t enchant me. Julia Child once called cooking a life skill and said its importance should never be trivialized. Cooking is more than combining ingredients so that we can eat. Cooking is not just a time-consuming chore, but rather a healing, nourishing meditation and how we make our love manifest. We honor the ingredients...and each other...by preparing food with mindful consideration. Cooking makes our lives whole. Finding pleasure in the process of cooking, from shopping to cleaning, the slicing and dicing, the sautéing and simmering, we experience joy for joy’s sake...not in anticipation of the reward of the meal. From knife skills to basic techniques, cooking styles, and tips and tricks, this workshop will turn your passion for cooking from simmer to boiling over.

The image is then transmitted through a digital camera onto a monitor, so you and I can both see what is inside your blood! We can see parasites, candida, yeast, fungus, bacteria, heavy metals, and liver and bowel toxicity. We can see the white blood cells of your immune system, the strength of your digestive system, the permeability of your liver and more. This rare look inside the body can show the progression of a body imbalance from the initial phase to long-term issues. You will receive counseling on optimal pH balance and a DVD video that captures your microscope images to take home immediately for your private viewing and to incorporate with your health practitioners. A summary report detailing your findings will be emailed to you within two weeks after the cruise.
