7:00-9:00pm

Many paths, one destination...

                    Expanding your creative self....

This talk and guided meditation will provide an overview of meditative traditions and discuss the unifying themes and reality behind them all. The event, featuring 30-year meditator and accomplished playwright/film producer D.R. Thompson, will give you a chance to interface with a practitioner who has studied with some of the most advanced spiritual masters of our time, many of who are considered among the last great teachers born in Tibet. Thompson will describe his own spiritual journey, beginning in his twenties when he had a profound spiritual awakening, to more recently, where his study of Dzogchen and Great Liberation teachings have allowed him to tie many spiritual traditions together and understand the unity behind them all.
 


Thompson has also researched the 2012 phenomena extensively, and can answer questions regarding what he feels is happening now regarding 2012 and where we might be headed as a society. Ultimately, he feels we have an opportunity for a great individual and collective awakening, should we seize the moment.
 
About D.R. Thompson

D.R. (Don) Thompson is a producer/filmmaker, playwright and essayist. Thompson’s film projects have won multiple awards at festivals such as Sundance, Movies that Matter, Cinema for Peace, New York Indie, and many others. His plays have been staged coast-to-coast and lauded by The New York Times, LA Times, Washington Post and others. His most recent collection of essays, A WORLD WITHOUT WAR (Del Sol Press), outlines a Framework for Peace in the new millennium. His Tibetan name is Namkha (Sky).

 Access Consciousness

Access Bars Energy Sessions


Are you ready to live Joyfully,  Deliciously,  Creatively  Free instead of living a life that was everyone else’s ideas and limitations for you?

“Access Consciousness and Bars Energy Sessions have changed my life and can change yours too.

  Access Consciousness is a set of tools and processes that support you in releasing the

  programs and belief systems you have taken on from everyone around you.  Bars Sessions

  along with Access Clearing statements are the foundation of Access Consciousness.

 

  An Access Bars Session involves touching 32 points on the head that hold your

  experiences through all lifetimes for life areas that include money, sexuality, creativity,

  control,  body, aging, joy and more.  A Bars Sessions removes the programs, limitations,

  trauma, thoughts, beliefs and emotions that are still  present and  limiting your life no matter

  what you have done to heal and undo them. It is like deleting files in your computer hard

  drive….  more easily than you ever thought possible!

Reiki Level One

Every One Can Learn. Everyone Can Benefit. Feel Peace Once Again.

Reiki is healing, calming and nurturing without negative side effects.

Reiki helps release stress.  When we are stressed we contract.  Our energy becomes stuck, causing us to live with repetitive and limited patterns, thoughts and emotions.  We have pain in the body and develop disease. With Reiki, the blocked energy begins to open and move so that harmony can be restored and healing can take place.



Learn the history and techniques or Reiki for balancing, calming, healing and wholeness.  Learn about the chakras and the fields of energy that surround and move through us. Experience a chakra balancing meditation. Give and receive a healing.

 After this class you will be able to offer these healing and harmonizing energies to yourself, family, friends, and animals too.

Frederick, MD - Monday, August 1 -

The setting is beautifully upscale, but the atmosphere at the Om Chakra Holistic Healing & Massage Center, located at the Francis Scott Key Hotel on West Patrick Street, is relaxed and welcoming. A week has passed since the grand opening and the studio has attracted more than 30 clients already. Offering a luxury environment for an affordable price, there is much about this studio that will spark plenty of interest in Frederick’s growing holistic community.

Beautiful clean whites decorate the walls and white sheer fabric hangs from the ceiling. Earth tones and clean open spaces greet you immediately. Loose tea sits on display for those that desire it. Complimentary services for all clients include robe, foot bath, and aroma therapy. Services unique to Om Chakra include a highly customized individual music selection.

According to Ken Cook, founder and owner of the studio, Om Chakra is the first to offer this customizable experience. Cook said that relaxation is different for everyone. His son finds heavy metal relaxing while someone else might find classic yogi music or Bob Marley relaxing. Therefore, when the client comes in they are able to select a playlist of music based on genre or desired experience.

Cook, a Middletown resident for the past 15 years, has spent his life traveling around the world.  Educated internationally, including high school in Japan, he spent 12 years traveling while studying herbal medicine and holistic massage. His travels have included India, Africa, Thailand, Peru, Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico. In recent years, Cook has sought certification for the techniques he spent a lifetime cultivating. He is a certified Reiki Master as well as a nationally certified massage therapist. Throughout his life, Cook felt that healing was his true calling and passion, yet never took the leap to embrace it fully until he witnessed the passing of his brother.  He took this as a wake-up call and decided that he no longer had any time to waste.

It was then that Cook began formulating a plan to do what he felt  called to do. That plan became his life’s work.  All material possessions and wealth earned from a lifetime of successful business management would be invested into what is now known as “Om Chakra.”  To understand why someone would feel called to make this leap of faith, one must take a closer look at the passing of Cook’s brother and the significance of this event for the entire holistic community.

The passing of Cook’s brother, Frank Cook, was felt around the world. To this day, there are numerous websites dedicated to his memory. These websites are run by long established and well-known holistic communities and schools. It turns out that Frank was a guru of sorts, a person completely dedicated to the study of natural health to such an extent that he influenced the development of holistic curriculum and community throughout the world. According to Cook, his brother never worked for money, but lived his life solely off of donations. Still, Frank managed to travel the world learning healing techniques from shamans, priests, yogis, and healers in every nook, corner, and mountain possible. Certified by multiple schools and clearly very intelligent, Frank’s passion was for simple living and earth-based medicine. His enthusiasm and knowledge garnered respect worldwide, including the respect of his brother, Ken. Upon his passing, Cook realized he could not wait a moment longer to follow his dreams. He felt deeply that world needs safe and comfortable spaces of healing and light. On the beaches of Thailand, the idea for Om Chakra was formed. This holistic center would serve as such a place and as a dedication to memory of his brother.

Cook chose our city as the location to set the foundations for his dream. Frederick, Cook explained, appeals to him because the people seem real and the location ideal for those seeking to be in the natural healing business. Before the foundations for Om Chakra were laid, Cook had to sell his businesses as well as his home and move into a small and cost-effective apartment. Excited to finally be doing what he loves,
Cook does not see this as a sacrifice, but as a dream finally attained. The hope, Cook expresses, is for Frederick to transition into a holistic haven similar to Boulder, Colo., and other well-known homeopathic destinations. To Cook, healing is not about money, but more about doing what he loves and giving back. In fact, the studio will be donating a couple of days worth of profit to local causes on a monthly basis.

Frederick is home to a small but thriving and vibrant holistic community. This new studio offers a wide array of healing services including many forms of yoga, massage, reiki and acupuncture. If the size of the grand opening and the first week of business is any indicator, these services will be warmly welcomed and embraced by the local community.

For more information on this new business, visit http://omchakra.com or visit the office at 31 W. Patrick St., Suite 100, Frederick.
