Energy Healing Circles

On Select Saturdays once - twice per month at 6 to7 PM

$10 per person

HSI has reformatted our Energy Healing Circles to include both Reiki and Therapeutic Touch energies. In doing so, we have found these circles to be much more powerful, creating not only a peaceful, healing environment but one which facilitates fast, concrete changes in the lives of those who attend and receive healing form our certified practitioners. At these Healing Circles, we will channel powerful healing energy into your energy field (aura), your physical body and into your life. Our Healing Practitioners will be giving individual healing sessions using either Therapeutic Touch or Reiki techniques. Patrons now receive 1 to 2  healing sessions to deeply empower their healing requests. We also welcome requests to send distance healing to your friends and loved ones not in attendance. Just let us know and we’ll put them in our Healing Book.

Church Services for 2014

Spiritualist Church services with

Rev. Stephen C. Robinson and Rev. Julie MacDonald

Once per month on Sundays at 6 PM -- held at:

 

Day's Inn Conference Center

1606 Central Avenue, Colonie

on the following schedule:

HSI is proud to announce that we will continue our Spiritualist Church Services in 2014.  This is an exciting time in the history of HSI as we begin to renew and refresh our whole institute.  Come to our Church Services and find out what Spiritualism is all about. 

 

Everyone is welcome, whether you are a practicing member of another religion or you don't attend other religious services.  Some people practice their spirituality privately.  However, it is always nice to know that you have a spiritual home at HSI.  Come to our services, conducted by two of the Capital District's most dynamic ministers.

 

Each service includes an inspiring talk (see below for themes), a healing prayer/meditation, a free-will offering and messages from those who have crossed over. 

 

Note: We are looking for musicians and soloists to perform.  At this time we are asking that if you can perform, that you donate your talents to HSI, until we can build a larger Spiritualist Community to support the payment of musicians and performers.

Giving consistently returns consistently-- By making a donation to HSI you are giving to a good cause and may attract hundreds and thousands of times more than you give

 

HSI is a tax-exempt organization, like any other school, church or non-profit group. It is classed as a 501 (c) (3) corporation by the US Department of The Treasury. Therefore your contributions are tax-deductible.

 

Choose one of three plans to help us meet our operating expenses:

 

1. $84 – per month plan. This adds up to about $1,000 per year. What is 1,000 times that?

 

2. ??? –per month plan. Pledge whatever you can afford to give and watch your finances grow!

 

3. ??? –Make a one-time donation of any amount.

Make your check to HSI. Then watch your finances grow as you practice the 10 principles of the Law of Attraction. To attract money to you, write this affirmation on the “for” line on your check: $ given = 1,000 X to my account!

 

A Fresh Start for HSI -- Going Portable

Now is an exciting time in the history and evolution of HSI.  First, HSI has moved out of the small office suite on Central Avenue that limited us.  The Board voted to "go portable," as a center, which we feel will bring us into a 21st Century business model.  This model has been successfully used for nearly 15 years in NYC.  Our NYC Psychic Development Program is now being presented in Albany.  This program goes far beyond the evening course program that we had taught in Albany.  Instead, as in NYC, we will be holding our courses and other events on select weekends throughout the calendar year.  For now we will be holding these events at:

Day's Inn Conference Center, 1606 Central Avenue, Colonie

This location is just 1/2 mile west of our previous location and on the same side of the street.  The Board is also looking at a variety of other locations in the Capital District--all hotel conference rooms.  We may be coming to a neighborhood near you soon.  However, for the calendar year of 2014 we plan to hold our events exclusively at the Day's Inn at the above address.  The conference rooms are located behind the reception center, with a full parking lot and free all-day parking.  Here is a view of the outside of the conference room center.

We are all very proud of our decision to go portable and know it will be a great success as we continue to provide the Capital District holistic community with quality classes, services and other events.  This new location is ideal for our needs. 

Upon entering the conference center, you will notice a charming café, a fireplace, and then the conference rooms themselves.  Usually the room we will be in is called the "Saratoga Room."  Public restrooms are just outside the conference room.  We are sure you will enjoy attending our activities at this location.

Please do not contact the Day's Inn with questions regarding HSI. Instead please contact HSI directly at the numbers, address at the top of this page.
