A few weeks ago we wrote about local healing and wellness center Maha Rose expanding to the space next door. The additional 1500-square-foot space (they’re currently at 97 Green Street) will feature an infrared sauna, and additional treatment and workshop rooms. After getting down and dirty and deep into the construction process, they have decided to use the power of crowdfunding to help offset the work, which is taking them twice as long and costing more than double what they anticipated.
They hope to be open in mid-September and are asking the community for help in reaching their financial goals so they can continue to offer a unique set of services and provide a safe space for North Brooklynites to breathe, learn, heal and expand their consciousness. Donate to Maha Rose here.Continue reading →

There’s something about me I haven’t really shared with anyone: I love it when people, places, and things magically sync up. Maybe it’s seeing a certain number or time everyday (11:11, anyone?), or dreaming about a long-lost friend or lover and out of the blue, they contact you. That’s synchronicity.
And, it felt even more synchronous when I was referred by a friend to Virginia Mason, an intuitive counselor. Virginia honors human experience and the uncertainty of life with many tools – reiki, astrology, tarot, yoga, and more.
Want to know the key behind intuitive counseling and how this Greenpoint gal is making huge waves in our neighborhood? I spent a lovely afternoon with Virginia to talk about all things mystical and tangible and got to experience some reiki firsthand. Read more to find out. Continue reading →
Four of Wands Wellness Collective (349 Leonard Street) is a self-care studio in Williamsburg, where people can find different kinds of holistic treatments, classes, handmade gifts, and a community space. Owner and Licensed Massage Therapist Daru Oda wanted to create a space for doing “what makes you happy. We forget to do things that are fun or to expand our minds. At Four of Wands, we can take care of ourselves for an hour.”
I tried Reiki for the first time at a donation-driven community event at Maha Rose (97 Green Street). The event listing described Reiki as “a high vibration energy that transmutes lower frequency vibrations helping the body to come into balance…” This doesn’t mean much to me. Then again, if someone described the way my phone functions I probably wouldn’t understand it right away. Continue reading →
