HAC Prepares to Get Natural And Take Workshops To A Whole New Level
For years, HAC Headmaster, Tom Tessereau, has dreamed of having a property suitable for workshops and retreats that would allow students to take in nature, ground themselves to the earth and make use of the energy that is available in a natural setting. This week, that dream became a reality as HAC purchased a 34-acre wooded tract in Cherryville, Missouri. Cherryville is fifteen miles south of Steelville, Missouri on Missouri Highway 19. The new retreat land is easily accessible by wide paved roads in just over 90 minutes from St. Louis. The property was once used as a hunting camp, but will become a refuge for wildlife hereafter. Neither hunting nor fishing will be allowed on the property by anyone. There are reports of bear, turkeys, deer, bobcats, coyotes and possibly mountain lions in the vicinity. HAC intends to make every attempt to minimize the disruption of the space as a natural habitat for these animals. We have seen a significant number of birds of prey in the area as well. The property overlooks a beautiful Ozark Mountain vallley that is home to a very large cattle ranch.

Reiki For Everyone - Comes To HAC in October - No License Required
Reiki is an energy transfer modality that is drawing increasing attention from both the holistic and traditional medical communities. Recommended by the likes of Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD (whose wife is a Reiki practitioner), Reiki is being used in clinics and hospitals around the world and throughout the United States to treat drug addiction, depression and to alleviate the effects of cancer treatment. Reiki does not require a massage or medical license to practice.
