Prayer and Meditation Room
The NTC will feature a prayer and meditation room available to all attendees throughout the conference. We provide prayer rugs, pillows for meditation and soft lighting for quiet reflection.
There is a quiet room at the NTC with low lighting, comfy couches, pillows, blankets, and even some giant bean bag chairs. It’s open during all conference hours, and one of our community members will be offering reiki treatments during select hours.
Additionally, at lunch we designate a section of the dining room as a quiet zone for folks to take a break and refuel mind, body and spirit.
Stop by for a free 10-minute reiki treatment, and head to your next session feeling recharged and refreshed! Reiki, a Japanese healing method, is a wonderful resource for reducing stress and promoting healing. You’ll sit comfortably while the practitioner places her hands lightly on or near you, moving them through a series of placements from head to toe. You won’t need to concentrate or do anything in particular. Just relax, allow yourself to start feeling better, and reiki does the rest! Stop by between 10am and 4pm, or reach Christine Egger at 248 787-4917 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment outside those hours.
