Exciting Updates from Balancing 4 Life

Anne Bentzen, Jikiden Reiki teacher, practitioner and owner of Balancing 4 Life, in Pleasantville, is pleased to announce two new practitioners that will be bringing new programs to the center this summer: Jessica Lawrence, a psychic medium, and Scott Nelson, a drumming circle leader and Anishinaabe medicine wheel teacher. With more than 20 years of experience, Lawrence will be offering clients intuitive guidance through tarot card readings, chord-cutting services and past-life regression sessions. Nelson will be providing monthly community drumming circles, which are open to families. Children 12 and under are free.

From July 8 through 9 (2023), Bentzen will be teaching Jikiden Reiki. Participants will learn the physical hands-on treatment of this form of energy healing for themselves. This will be followed by the advanced Okuden seminar on July 30 with Shihan Jan Mizushima. “Everyone can learn reiki for themselves, their families and share with friends,” notes Bentzen.

In addition, Bentzen is now a Stargate Circle host for the Stargate Experience Academy of Mt. Shasta. “I am excited to provide free meditations of live-streamed global Stargate events,” she says. “Connect with a global family of 10,000-plus Stargate family members in over 70 countries. The exponential power of community is amazing.” Stargate Circles are designed to build community as members gather in person. Anyone can join. Easy signups are available online through the website.
