We here at U.H.H. have based our way of healing on the concept of community.  We, as a community, have the ability within each of us to heal ourselves and others with compassion, love, fellowship and acceptance… understanding that we each bring tremendous gifts to this planet; ourselves.  As unique and different as we are from each other, we are all the same, searching and longing for love, compassion, fellowship and acceptance. 
 

      Unity Healing House is a community of teachers and students who together in a combined effort, empower ourselves to reach our highest healing potential. Through classes, workshops and events such as Reiki, Yoga, Crystal Bowls, Drumming, Earth-Centered Rituals, Book Study, and much more!.. We empower ourselves with tools for healing on the physical and spiritual level.   
 
      "When we come together as a community we channel our energy and raise our vibrations in magnitude. Therefore, creating a healing vortex where healing can reach levels of unimaginable heights."

We are the home of Stella Lu Yoga
