Fall Workshops, Social Events at Life Energy Arts in Mount Kisco

Life Energy Arts in Mount Kisco

This fall, the Life Energy Arts Gallery, in downtown Mount Kisco, will host a variety of programs and community events focused on holistic health. Among the highlights will be Sunday workshops led by experts in specific aspects of the field. All workshops will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
    Devoted to the work of holistic healer John Diamond, M.D., Life Energy Arts Gallery is the only gallery in the world whose focus is artwork created with the intention of being therapeutic, says gallery director Karla Booth. She will start the workshop season on September 5 with a presentation on the Diamond-Dart Meridian Sequence, a holistic movement meditation designed to energize the acupuncture meridians. She will teach ongoing classes on the same topic from 10 to 11:15 a.m. on Thursdays. 
    Peter Muir, Ph.D., an internationally renowned performer, educator and authority in using music for wellness, will lead two Sunday workshops: an introduction to using music for stress reduction, on September 22, and using music to enhance the lives of people with disabilities, on November 3. Acupuncturist and university lecturer Jennifer Weiss will lead introductory workshops on the acupuncture meridian system and the emotions on October 20 and November 17.
    The gallery is also planning a number of fall social events. One Saturday a month beginning September 21, it will host a wine and cheese social from 6 to 8 p.m. On September 12, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., therapeutic practitioners of any type are invited to the gallery to chat and network. And Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m., people at all levels of musical experience and ability are welcome to come to the gallery and sing with the Westchester Songbirds, a new community singing group offering a natural approach to music making.
