Promoting Wellbeing

Reiki. Reiki became an official healing ministry of First Church in April 2009. Originally developed as a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, Reiki is based on the belief that a spiritually guided life force energy flows through us and sustains us. Reiki is practiced as a “laying on of hands” that generates a wonderful glowing radiance flowing through and around the recipient. Reiki treats the whole person – body, emotions, mind and spirit.

Yoga. Each week, a First Church member who is also a professional yoga teacher leads participants in an hour of flowing movements of gentle vinyasa-style yoga. The sessions are open to all, with yoga poses tailored to each participant’s abilities.

Singing Bowls. Sound healing is offered on the first Friday of each month in Cook Hall by Marcey and Brian Hickey. Aches and pains melt away with the relaxing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls. Open to all. ($10 donation)

Women's Retreat. Each Spring the women of First Church come together for a weekend away at Mercy Center in Madison to reflect and re-energize.

"Year of the Happy Woman." Offered in 2017, the program offered ways to learn to “live from the inside out” in harmony with the natural rhythms of our bodies and the seasons. Participants developed their practices in yoga, meditation, healthy eating, and journaling.
