Benefit concert in San Diego, CA, October 7th:
The Tipsy Crow, 770 Fift Avenue
Himalayan Healers is the only school in the world that trains "Untouchables" in massage therapy. "Untouchables" are a group of people that are not allowed in most homes, schools, or temples in India and Nepal, and even have their own separate water supplies. They are a group of people that has been considered taboo to touch or to be touched by for more than 2,000 years. By training "Untouchables" in massage therapy profound levels of personal healing and growth occur. We have also expanded our work over the past 7 years to include women who are recovering from domestic violence, physical trauma, and human trafficking. The levels of personal healing and growth each of our students move through is truly profound, and is the heart of our efforts and success.
We are hosting a small fundraising event in San Diego on October 7th and my hope is that you would consider supporting our efforts. Any of the following donations would be greatly appreciated and would have a tremendous impact upon our training efforts to help those of the greatest need.
A free music CD of tranquil spa music from Nepal will be provided to everyone who supports our efforts:
· Please consider purchasing a $20 ticket on our GoFundMe.com page to attend the event and have a good time.
Even if you live in another city and cannot attend the event your purchase of a ticket online represents an effective, needed donation to our efforts at Himalayan Healers. We will send you a complimentary music CD as a "thank you" for your support!
Summer Mencher (Founder, Therapist at "Rhythm and Truth Music Therapy") will be donating her skills, time, positive energy, and magical voice for the event, and will be performing a benefit concert at The Tipsy Crow (770 Fifth Avenue, San Diego) on October 7th, from 7pm. The Tipsy Crow has also graciously agreed to host our event and is providing location, equipment, staff, and support.
THANK YOU Summer, Tipsy Crow team, and all of our other local supporters for taking the time to make this event happen. So truly appreciated by all of us over here in Nepal.
If you are a massage therapist:
· If you have any used or old massage tables that you are currently not using "“ or if you are thinking of upgrading to a new table "“ please consider donating your massage table to our school. Our goal is 8 or more tables to outfit our new training center.
· If you have any used or old massage bed-sheet sets please consider donating them to our school. Our goal is 50 or more bed-sheet sets (as an example, the cost to make or purchase 1 bed-sheet set in Nepal represents 2 week's worth of the average Nepali's income; 50 bed-sheets sets represents 2 year's average income).
· If you would consider donating a portion of the income from just 1 treatment at your spa, massage center, or school your funds would have a tremendously positive impact upon our operations. Our goal is 25 or more therapists donating $35 or more from the income of 1 treatment within their operations.
Further information on our work:
Last year our school was listed as "Top 10 Spa Academy in Asia" by the Asia Spa Association. Listed below are links to several media articles on our work:
As a side-note, I have worked completely on a volunteer-basis for the past 7 years building our Himalayan Healers project. Your help will truly have a dramatic impact on our work, as every penny of support will go to our training.
Together, we can make a meaningful difference in people's lives who need our support. THANK YOU for being a part of our efforts. Please, if you have any ideas, questions, or suggestions do let me know. I am always eager to connect, to share, and to learn. Health, Happiness, and Peace,
