Rainbow Awareness Healing Arts Fair: Healing with Chakra Energy
Join Replete We Fly, a newly formed non-profit educational healing arts organization, for two days of celebration, networking, music, alternative health practitioners and speakers on Sept. 22-23. The Rainbow Awareness Healing Arts Fair is focused on the healing aspects of the chakras and how these rainbow-colored vortices of life force energy can balance your life.
Judie Maron, founder of Replete We Fly, is a strong believer in alternative health methods. After battling a long illness, Maron regained her health through homeopathic treatment. The rediscovery of her power to take control of her health led her to create Replete We Fly.
The name of the organization “means to be filled to over flowing or abundant to the point of being gorged. We feel that if one is filled with light, health, love—you are uplifted to the point of being able to soar or fly,” says Maron.
An autumnal equinox sound ceremony will be held on Sept. 22 from 7 to 8 p.m. and the healing arts fair runs on Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to dusk at 8725 NE Broadway in Portland. (Car pooling or public transit recommended. The NE 82nd St. Max station and bus stop are located six blocks from the event.) Tickets: $11/person (children under 10 free), with proceeds to benefit Replete We Flyand another charitable organization selected in a drawing at the day’s end. Details at www.rainbow.healing.com. Volunteers, sponsors and presenters needed. Contact Judie Maron at 503-288-8369 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Serenity House Provides Holistic Healing
Serenity House, an intensive rejuvenation center providing holistic energetic medicine, has just opened in Portland. The alternative care center offers appointments and short-term stays in a serene, home-like setting.
Using EPFX/SCIO technology, Serenity House tests for energetic imbalances and health issues. The EPFX/SCIO detects weaknesses such as viruses, nutritional deficiencies, allergies, abnormalities and food sensitivities by calculating the biological reactivity and resonance in your body. Personalized holistic programs are then created for individuals, including diet, lifestyle changes, emotional and physical therapies, and other alternative treatments as needed.

New Leadership at Spiritual City Forum
John William Johnson, an Internet marketing and sales expert, is taking over the leadership of the Spiritual City Forum, an organization whose mission is to change the world—one conversation at a time.
“My interest lies mainly in having conversations that matter,” says Johnson, whose diverse background includes psychotherapy, massage and sound healing. “I will be using the Internet and other means of communication, like the arts, to find ways to deepen our relationship to one another and to Mother Earth.”
The Spiritual City Forum was created by seven spiritual leaders representing Buddhism, New Thought, Universal Unitarian, Native American, Pagan, Lutheran and Scientologist religions. The group meets to discuss spiritual perspectives, civic matters and dialogue, including such topics as the spiritual state of democracy, unleashing the power of collective intelligence, and sustainable health care.
