  • Healing Collective: A Night of Sacred Space

    By on April 24, 2016

    See you every last Friday of the Month!

    April Healing Collective at Urban Escape Healing

      Hi all of you Healing Collective Attendees!

    Ah! It feels so good to finally be Spring Again! I hope you all are soaking up this Full Moon in Scorpio Energy.  It’s a Strong One!  Once again, we cannot even describe the amount of gratitude we have for each and every one of you who attended March’s Healing Collective.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  I truly am humbled every day by the energy the community brings to our space! You all rock! Gratitude also to all the practitioners and facilitators who held down the fort and offered an array of beautiful healing modalities as well as our Sound Meditation facilitators, Neale, Janie, Simon, and Walker.
    Michelle and The Long March to Rome were extremely grateful for all of the support and monetary donations last month!  Check out this month’s Community Cause below and support your local community.

      Announcements for the upcoming Collective:

                       Last month we moved to a PRE-SALE ONLY ticketing system, which worked GREAT! Thank you all for your commitment to the Eb & Flow of this evening.  Once you understand Urban Escape Time, it makes things a little bit easier. With that being said, we are always looking to better accommodate a steady flow. This month we will continue to have a break from 9-9:30PM to not only give our healers a break but also allow for a presentation of this month’s Community Cause and our Food Vendors to tell of their yummy menu (Check out more information below)
                       As far as sign-up sheets go, we will continue to have two designated times to sign up for healing stations.  One at the beginning of the night upon arrival, and another after our Community Cause presentation.   This is to insure that everyone who paid to get in will receive 3 healing sessions!   We thank you SO much for your patience with this exciting and minority chaotic part of the event.  I truly believe it brings an element of fun as well as allowing participants to maybe get a session with a new practitioner.
    Please be mindful of others as you sign up by limiting your sign-ups to 3 per person for the night. We are also implementing the rule that participants are not to take sessions back-to-back to allow for time in-between sessions to reflect, grab some water, use the bathroom, eat food, etc.  I would also like to remind everyone to be mindful of your sessions in congruence with the hourly meditations.  Please don’t sign up for a session and then disappear for a Guided Meditation.  If you would like to participate in the meditation, continue to keep an ear out for the bell that comes around every 20 minutes to announce the switch of stations.


                           We will continue to have a Raffle this Healing Collective. The winners will be announced at the end of the Second Round of Each person will receive 1 ticket in the pot for a chance to win sessions & prizes donated from our healers as well as Urban Escape Healing. If you’d like to purchase more tickets to better your chances of winning, they are $3 and can be purchased online when you purchase your Healing Collective Ticket or at our front desk up until the drawing of winners.  All money made from the Raffle will go to this month’s Community Cause.
    We are also continuing the Art Vibe in our Healing Collective by featuring local artist, Cherly Casden.  She will be doing Live Art in the nook of the studio.  We will also have an area for you to express your artistic side with Mandala Coloring books in the Earth Room.   Finally, there will be 30-minute Guided Meditations going on throughout the night in our Meditation Room! Stay tuned for more details on our 
    Facebook page!

Also, if you get your ticket online, you will receive a FREE (that’s right FREE!) essential oil sample at the door!

    *Note that these entry tickets do not cover your Healer Tip/Contribution.  We ask that participants be mindful of the exchange of energy and services when you receive a session from your healer.  Practitioners typically charge $1/minute and we would like to honor that.*

    This Month’s Community Cause:
    This month’s community cause Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) has been brought to our attention through our co-facilitator Erin. You may have seen her volunteering at the front desk during our Healing Collective, or several other events that she helps out with here at Urban Escape.

    When Erin is not working here, she also provides support as an Enlightened member of Agents for Good – a Chicagoland area planning committee, who get together several times a year to hand-pack meals for this organization, helping to further spread enlightenment and help children resist hunger.

    Follow This Link to visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support Feed My Starving Children

    Your donation goes straight to FMSC, which sends food to over 70 countries around the world!

    Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit organization committed to feeding children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, and we send them to partners around the world where they’re used to operate orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. FMSC food has reached nearly 70 countries in our history.
