Lorna Gager, a metaphysical life coach specializing in women’s issues, and Christine Okezie, a nutrition and lifestyle coach, have set out to build a center for higher consciousness. “The center will be a hub for heart-centered collaboration, personal evolution and business growth—a spiritual home for healers and those seeking healing, alike,” Gager says.
She and Okezie have been partners in a joint venture, UnlockMagic.Life, since 2017. They held a focus group for this new partnership on February 27 at the Nyack Public Library, with plans to draft the center’s charter at an open session in Rye on March 23.
Okezie compares the concept for the center to a local Kripalu or Omega. “With dozens of modalities under one roof, members can explore the ones they resonate with individually,” she says. Under the developing model, practitioner members will grow their business by offering sessions through the center while thriving in a noncompetitive, referral-based community.
“At a traditional gym, you take classes, work on machines, hire a trainer and so on,” Gager adds. “At our gym for the soul, you’ll take a class in Reiki, work with a doctor of Chinese medicine, and hire a feng shui specialist at a discount. Best of all, members will feel at home surrounded by others who believe that we all come from and serve a higher purpose.”
