Apr 09   Ray Wylie Hubbard Concert

CCC Center Stage Series featuring  RAY WYLIE HUBBARD                   

Saturday, April 9,2016 at 7:30 pm

When it comes to down ’n’ dirty roots ’n’ roll, nobody in the wide world of Americana music today does it better than Ray Wylie Hubbard.  After riding a decade-long career resurgence into the national spotlight with 2012’s acclaimed The Grifter’s Hymnal (#2 on the Americana Chart), the iconoclastic Texas songwriter is back to continue his hot streak with chart-climbing, The Ruffian’s Misfortune. Elmore Magazine calls his 16th album “one of the tightest records he’s ever recorded” and soon to be followed by his uproarious, hair-raising autobiography, A Life … Well, Lived.

 

”With a rocking new album — The Ruffian's Misfortune, …the Texas music demigod has returned at age 68 to show the young 'uns how it's done … Even when compared to friends like Willie Nelson and Jerry Jeff Walker, they don't make spirits any freer than Ray Wylie.”
-ROLLING STONE

Apr 30   Reiki I

Whether you have the desire to offer healing energy to others, or just understand the importance of healing yourself, Reiki can offer a useful tool on your journey to well-being. Reiki is a holistic healing technique for stress reduction, relaxation, spiritual growth, and mental/emotional balancing. It is a method of amplifying your inner healing light, which nourishes every aspect of your being. The practice of Reiki requires no prior bodywork knowledge.

Learn about and experience Reiki energy while studying the chakra centers of the body and the energy field that surrounds each of us. Work with Reiki as you learn basic hand placements for self-treatment and working on others. Reiki begins with the clearing of your energy field through an attunement which activates the healing energy within. You will receive a certificate after completing this level.
