HAC instructor Terrie Yardley-Nohr has given thousands of scarves to students over the years, sharing warmth and merriment.
by Kate Lilly
This is, in fact, the seventeenth year that Terrie has made fleece scarves for her students. As the instructor for the Business class, the Clinic Supervisor of two Cancer Clinics and the Program Director at the Healing Arts Center, Terrie interacts with virtually every student. Each winter, Terrie brings a large wicker basket filled with rolled-up scarves to school. She brings the basket to each class: Level 1-Day, Level 1-Night, Myofascial Release, Advanced Techniques, and Business so each student can pick the scarf they like best.
The massage therapy training program at the Healing Arts Center is a year long, so each Christmas, there is an entirely new set of students that delight in receiving their very own fleece Terrie-scarf. It's an annual Christmas tradition. When asked about why she makes and gives scarves to everyone at school, Terrie said, "It makes my heart feel good."

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.
