a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress and, if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom” or the “Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy.” So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self–improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
This degree involves permanent attunements to the Reiki Ray. Once initiated, it allows a person to channel Reiki energy for healing oneself and others. It requires no special invocation or alteration of the thinking process to “turn on” the flow of Reiki. By simply placing hands on and opening the heart to love, one automatically brings in the energy. Certificate is available upon completion.

LEARN to read the Tarot Cards.
This 10 hour course covers The Major and Minor Arcana and the 'Fool's Journey" which is basically a map of the journey every person takes in their life, similar to philosopher Joseph Campbell's archetypal "Heroes Journey" where everyone (who is a hero or fool in their own life) learns lessons as they go along. In the Tarot, the Major Arcana marks the passages of this journey, which is reflected in the cards that are drawn for the individual at any and every moment in their life. YOU will learn the chronological and developmental stages of this journey, which is really never ending until we die. YOU will learn different ways to assimilate card meanings without the use of memory. This will involve Tarot card dream incubation, and meditation among other things. YOU will also learn the 3 modalities of reading Tarot; Symbolism, Color, and Number meanings. At the end of the course YOU will know how to do 1, 3 and 5 card readings, general, past, present, future, mind, body, spirit, and yes/no readings. You will learn to read comment cards and learn little tricks to understand the message of the cards more clearly. There will also be practice amongst yourselves where you will be able to lay your foundation and measure your improvement.

Can you believe it? We are into our 5th season hosting concerts in conjunction with Home Routes. We have seen some amazing artists perform in our living room from Catherine MacLellan to Suzie Vinnick just to name a few.
Our next upcoming concert artist is Sierra Noble, yes you heard me Sierra Noble is coming to the Calder House. Well we knew going into this one that tickets would sell really fast. However, we were not expecting to sell 60 tickets. That's an amazing number considering we can only sit 30. So thankfully we have wonderful neighbors who have graciously lent us their bigger living space and we'll be able to host in the comforts of their home. Thank you Andy and Paula!
This concert is SOLD OUT! Sorry for all those that didn't reserve first. Here some info about Sierra, you might want to catch her the next time she is in town.
Sierra Noble has been one of Winnipeg, Manitoba’s most promising young talents since releasing her first instrumental album at age 14. Well known for most of her life as a fiddle virtuoso who breezes through numerous styles of music with stunning ease, Sierra’s breadth of experience in music and in life at 22 is impressive. But, she has never been one to rest on her laurels. Encouraged by fellow musicians to sing, at age 17 Sierra decided to try her hand at writing songs. Her journey as a singer-songwriter has proven to be off to a promising start. Although relatively new to the American public, Sierra’s music has taken her around the world, touring in Asia, Europe, North and South America. Sierra’s shows captivate audiences with compelling mood setting performances creating an atmosphere where stunning instrumentals and hook laden pop songs exist in perfect harmony. Those same performances have brought opportunities such as opening for Paul McCartney, Kid Rock, Bon Jovi, as well as performing in the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and for the Queen of England. Her songs speak of universal themes of love, longing, and discovery wrapped in infectious melodies and delivered with sincerity and conviction. Her voice,
a study in gorgeous contradictions – wonderfully pure yet layered with subtle, smoky tones.
Sierra’s music grabbed the attention of the Television industry with placements in hit TV shows such as; One Tree Hill, (Possibility and I Can See), Life Unexpected, (Possibility), Switched at Birth (Human After All and I Can See), and most recently, Parenthood, (Human After All). Sierra is now spending most of her time in New York City where a fateful chance meeting with legendary Grammy Award winning producer, Russ Titelman (Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Steve Winwood, Randy Newman, Rickie Lee Jones) fueled an immediate creative chemistry.
