Heal the World...Tikkun Olam
from Old Hebrew - the dharma of life on earth
WALTJA is an Aboriginal word for 'extended family'. The extended family encompasses the sum total of LifeForce-bearing entities and recognizes the responsibility we have to one another as our brothers' and sisters' keeper.
WALTJA Center is a Community-Access Healing Center in Troy, NY. We provide a space for classes and events, plus a private treatment room for hire. Classes are developed and provided by local and guest healing arts practitioners.
Waltja fills a need for community - access healing space. We help people launch their practice in a professional community setting. Waltja provides a resource for healers and their clients in the social, mind/ body, energy and spiritual disciplines, a health reading room, with locally made and consciously sourced products, equipment, and books for healing, fasting, cleansing, learning and more.
The Waltja Center features:
You might be able to help us with our new initiative...
We are actively looking for a rural site located in proximity to a cancer treatment center in order to establish another Waltja Center for Healing Arts.
This Center will offer complimentary therapies including gentle hands on and energy work for cancer patients
--free of charge--
Our vision is for an Upstate NY healing oasis of clean sweet air, green gardens, comfortable chairs on a patio for sitting in the morning sun and paths for easy walks through the woods, workshops and classes.
Healing arts practitioners may be artists-in-residence while providing their healing artform in a fellows internship arrangement at the Center.
How will we fund free complimentary therapies for patients being treated for cancer?
The funding will be provided by medical products manufacturers and conventional state-of-the-art cancer treatment companies. These are corporations whose leadership want to give some of their profits to help improve the quality-of-life for people their products treat in hospitals and cancer treatment centers around the world.
We already have one interested medical products manufacturer who has offered to sponsor the creation of a venue for our work with cancer patients. He offers to pay for renovations, ongoing utilities and maintenance on the facility. He plans to design and construct his eco-friendly sustainable building on the same property. More ongoing support will be needed but the initial sponsorship will help make our vision a realty.
Now we need to find a place...
We are currently looking in the Cooperstown-Cherry Valley area. Please help us find an appropriate space, a house or farm with land to build, to do this important work!
