Healing workshops will benefit Peace House

A day after the Solstice Flute School closes its 2015 classes at the Peaks Hotel, the school’s co-founder Nancy Haga will facilitate a day of Native American healing workshops at the Prospector Convention Center on June 26.

These sessions, which will be held consecutively from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., will benefit Peace House, a nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating domestic abuse in Summit and Wasatch Counties.

Registration is $44.44, plus a voluntary donation to Peace House.

"The number four is a symbolic number in the Native American culture and we’ll tell you why during the workshops," Haga said.

All of the healers are Native American and have been through some sort of abuse during their childhood, according to Haga.

"So Peace House is near and dear to their hearts," she said. "The Prospector is even donating the space for these workshops."
