Sleeping Dragon Farm is the name given to the 8 acres of property which Crossroads owner, Lis, calls home and was named such by her son when first seeing the humps of the distant Catskill Mountains.
This sacred space, easily accessible via I88 and located just 20 minutes from Downtown Schenectady or Albany, is where many of Crossroad's Workshops and Retreats are held.
Sleeping Dragon Intuitive Energy Work Elisabeth Rolfe, RP IARP. 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.
The International Center for Reiki Training Growing up I was introduced to herbal forms of healing by my paternal Grandmother, who also believed that our mind had much to do with the conditions of our physical health. Withheld anger would 'give you a sour stomach' and 'too much thinking' was bound to bring on a headache. Worrying and stress during pregnancy would no doubt deliver a 'colicky newborn'. Working side by side in her herb gardens taught me that most of what we need to heal ourselves could be found in Nature, including the benefits of fresh air, dirty fingernails and old~fashioned physical work. I carried this philosophy, along with many of the herbs from my Grandmother's gardens, with me through my life so becoming a holistic Practitioner seemed as natural and comfortable as digging in the dirt. In addition to some traditional Reiki hand positions, I incorporate an intuitive blend of guided (your Guides & Mine) energy transfer holds and techniques which are a culmination of Reiki, Psychology of the Body philosophy & channeled Shamanic guidance from Spirit.
These techniques have deepened my knowledge of how the body holds emotional energy and the result has allowed me to give my clients insight into the possible cause of emotional imbalance and diseases manifesting in their lives. Working with your own deep Ancestral energies & the Soul's desire for growth, I'm finding that Spirit has a much clearer channel in which to reach my clients. The use of various crystal singing bowls & crystals themselves, along with the powerful healing potential of an amethyst & far~infrared heating pad on the bodywork table (read more about the Biomat here) offers a Unique & Ultimately relaxing experience.
