Whatever your tastes are, feel certain that Phoenix is your place for active living. Note: Some descriptions courtesy of event hosts and edited for clarity.


Aura Reading and/or Energy Healing at Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi
Everything in the universe seems to be just a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary “particle”, even our thoughts and consciousness are vibrations. An Aura is an electro-photonic vibration response of an object to some external excitation (such as an ambient light for example). Simply put, an aura is the existing energy field that surrounds living creatures. But the most important property of an Aura is that it contains information about the object. Each color or the frequencies that they represent define their individual nature and characteristics. A trained healer can use the AURACOM Biofeedback Aura Image Scanning System Machine to read your aura and interpret the different colors and shapes in the aura. $30 or $200; between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.; 8880 E Vía Linda Ste 110, Scottsdale, AZ; bodynbrain.com // @bodynbrain.us
