Open Heart Attunement

July 28, 2019 / 5pm - 7pm

Sound has been used for thousands of years to induce Altered States of Consciousness. Within these Altered States of Consciousness lie keys of great healing potential. It is my direct experience after years of training that different instruments create different vibrational frequencies that focus on different parts of the body.


Mike Grazioso and James McGrath have studied under the same teachers in a modality of Holographic Sound healing, and will be honored to take you on a journey.  Aaron Weston and Jen Tartakoff have been practicing energy work since a early age, and will be providing hands on Reiki during the sound.


Please join us on Sunday, July 28th from 5-7pm at Nourishing Necessities, 509 Farmington Ave in Hartford. RSVP to Aaron Weston at 860-655-6564.

Mystical Movement hike

June 1, 2019 / 5pm

Join us for a guided hike that incorporates the Magical and the Mystical. We will learn about plants that can be used for food and medicine, then get our energy flowing with a special Mystical Movement practice at the top of the mountain.


The hike will start along the shores of the reservoir and then we will connect to a section of the Blue-Blaze Metacomet Trail. At the top there are beautiful vistas and breathtaking views. Along the way we will get our energy flowing with a special practice called Mystical Movement. We will also practice at the top as the sun sets.


Mystical Movement is a unique practice that Aaron Weston developed to open the body and energy channels through a blend of Tai Chi, Qigong, and Yoga.

Feel the Chi

August 11 or 18, 2019 / 2 - 6pm

Chi also spelled Qi, (both pronounced Chee) is a Chinese character made up of the two characters Air & Rice which simply state, breathe and eat and you will have chi (energy). Tai Chi and Qigong are amazing ways to self activate & maintain a good flowing system while Acupuncture and reflexology are healing measures offered to rebalance Yin & Yang to a healthy state.
With so much to learn about the Yin-Yang symbol, 5 element theory and application of the 8 diagrams...We wouldn’t want to create a “Shen-disturbance” (mind-spirit overload)! We simply want you to “Feel the Chi”.

Aaron Weston will guide us through beautiful and beneficial body movement called My Chi. My Chi is a powerful sequence Aaron developed by mixing internal and external exercises derived from traditional Chinese & Japanese methods and adding his experience and training in Western anatomy, physiology & kinesiology to meet concerns of modern times and circumstances.
Jen Tartakoff will offer her sacred blend of Acupuncture, Reiki and intuitive intervention as a group healing along with Aaron Weston’s magic touch. Both Reiki Masters and well versed in many forms of bodywork, these two amazing healers have joined forces to bring balance to our bodies and minds. Gift yourself and another this experience of healing and “Feel the Chi”

Call Aaron Weston at 680-655-6564 to reserve your spot! The events are limited to 10 people.

Meditation and CBD Workshop

June 28, 2019 / 7pm - 9pm

Hippies have finally reached the health industry. Happiness is the reason why many of us found this miraculous medicine as teenagers however if smoking the plant alone had the same benefits as CBD then Bob Marley may not have died from brain cancer. Get educated on the medicinal benefits and the legal way of approaching the world of cannabis. Since we took the high out of it by extracting the THC, we are putting it back in with a guided meditation. Science of experience is the only true science.
