10:00-11:00 AM: An informational Session: Triad Resources, Reducing Crime Against the Elderly Stephen O. Izaguirre, Community Outreach, Office of the Attorney General

11:00 AM: Dances of Light Healing, Reiki Healing for CareGivers

Description: The caregiver, whether a professional caregiver or a relative, shoulders the burden of responsibility for another human’s comfort. Sometimes the responsibility can be overwhelming, and the caregiver suffers, often causing the recipient of the care to suffer as well. Reiki is an amazingly effective therapy for reducing stress, anxiety and pain and works for the caregiver as much as for the memory-impaired (people with Alzheimers or dementia) and people suffering from chronic pain.

About the Presenter: Cindy Waldman is a certified Usui Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki Master/Teacher/Practitioner. While living in Caracas, Venezuela in the early 1990’s, she began working with alternative techniques for stress management, deep relaxation and consciousness exploration using sound and light technology. After returning to the US, Cindy took her first level Usui Reiki I class. Since then, she has completed Reiki II (2006) and the Reiki III/Master level (2008), which enabled her to teach and initiate new Reiki practitioners. In 2010, she opened a small Reiki practice in Woodbridge, which was later put on hold while she took care of her mother-in-law who suffered from dementia. In 2016 she deepened her knowledge and flow of Reiki by completing the Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki training taught by William Lee Rand through the International Center for Reiki Training. She advanced to Holy Fire III in February 2019 through the ICRT. Through her Reiki practice, Dance of Light Healing, she hopes to help people feel refreshed and rejuvenated, physically, mentally, and emotionally.

11:30 AM: The Great Escape–Fun Ways to Get Away with Unique Travel!
