Hands of Light Workshop at Center at Westwoods Explores the Energy Body

Energy healer and teacher Patricia Howard will offer a weekend workshop on Brennan Healing Science from September 11 through 13, at The Center at Westwoods, in Westwood. Hands of Light offers participants the opportunity to learn about the regulation of the chakras (energy centers) in the body, and ways to naturally improve health.

“Traditional medicine is often limited in the tools it gives people to transform their health, and more and more drugs can have undesired side affects,” says Howard. “Considering our human body as an expression of our energy bodies—physical, emotional, mental and spiritual—lays out the pathways for optimal health.”

Howard says that energy medicine systems consider physical organs to be storage places for unexpressed emotion, and that masters of energy medicine can regulate their blood pressure and internal temperature. “These potentials are not accessible to most people,” she says. “They can, however, access the feelings, belief systems and practices that engage the spiritual bodies, be in touch with emotional needs, and express them as a way to participate in healthy longevity.”

The weekend workshop is based on the work of Barbara Brennan. Howard, a graduate of Brennan’s certification program and teacher training, also sees clients for individual sessions at The Center at Westwoods and in her Jamaica Plain office.
