Monthly Events

Family Days - April 6, 12, 18, 24

Spring Cleaning "Make & Take" Workshop - On Sunday, April 9th, join Dr. Melissa and Dr. Meagan from 11am to 1pm and explore how you can use essential oils to replace some of your existing cleaning products with natural, healthy and effective options.  Each participant will make two cleaning products of their choice and be entered in our raffle for a free diffuser.  Cost: $30. Registration required by Tuesday, April 4th via email to coretherapies@yahoo.com.

Children's Night School with Megan Gouldner - Sunday, April 23rd, 11AM-12 noon. Suggested donation: $25. Night School is a technique designed to help lower brain wave levels, and helps balance the hemispheres of the brain. Enhancing full brain function increases mental focus, a calm nervous system and greater body awareness/intuition. Children's brains have a natural tendency for balance; their intuitive capacities are unmatched. With increasing levels of stress and toxicity, these precious little brains are at a greater risk for distress. Using techniques like imagery, meditative journeying and storytelling, we can keep their brains healthy and clear, and make it safe for them to feel confident and centered in this wild and wonderful world. Join us for a fun day of storytelling and imagery, a meditation and a journey! For additional information or to register, please contact Megan Gouldner at artoflistening@me.com.

Recipe of the Month

Basic Kimchi (courtesy of Livestrong Recipes) - serves 15


  • 1 head Raw Napa Cabbage
  • 1/2 cup Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 small Onion (boiled)
  • 4 stalk Fresh Green Onions
  • 4 Garlic Clove
  • 2 tsp Ginger Root
  • 4 tbsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sugar Granulated

1. Cut the cabbage into 1.5 to two-inch squares. Wash the chopped cabbage in a bowl and drain. Place the rinsed cabbage in a large bowl and add salt. Let stand for two hours. Stir a couple of times until they are soft and limp.

2. Meanwhile, cut vegetables: Slice onion. Cut green onions into about one-inch pieces. Mince garlic and ginger finely.

3. After the salted cabbage has shrunk and become limp, rinse the cabbage under cold water two times. Drain in a colander for 20 minutes. NOTE: Taste cabbage after this step to make sure it’s not too salty. If so, rinse and/or soak in a bowl of water to get all excess salt off.

4. In a large bowl, mix thoroughly drained cabbage with red pepper, fish sauce, sugar and already cut/minced vegetables. Taste and add little salt if it is necessary.

5. Pack the kimchi into a jar. Let the jar stand at room temperature for one to two days for fermentation before placing it in the refrigerator. 

TIP: For added flavors, nutrients and color, you can add other vegetables including: carrots, radishes, apples, beets, cauliflower and kale, etc.
