Susan Harvey, Jasmine Gold, and Cotati Mayor Mark Landman at the reopening event.

It was a sunny Saturday afternoon on January 26, providing the perfect backdrop for the grand reopening celebration of Songbird Community Healing Center. The center, which shuttered its doors briefly for the move, is now located at 8297 Old Redwood Hwy. in Cotati.

The move was facilitated by a need for more space to handle their expanding calendar of activities which include workshops, classes, lectures, and private sessions. After purchasing the property they gave the space a facelift to create more visibility as well as meeting the needs for their expanded offerings.

Per Linda Adrain, the community coordinator for the center, the event drew over 100 people including current Coati Mayor, Mark Landman. Cotati City Council Member, Susan Harvey, was also in attendance along with members from the Rohnert Park Chamber of Commerce. Jasmine Gold, the founder and director of the center, cu the official ribbon to commence the reopening with help from Tony Geraldi and Amanda Hodson of the Rohnert Park Chamber.

Drumming by Sheridan Gold to introduce the monthly Drumming Circles

The celebration included talks from the practitioners describing their skills and talents. Sample sessions for the mind and spirit were provided by Claire Niemiste, Caressa da Roza, Terri Moon, and Terry Trapp covering concepts such as Nonviolent Communication to Iridology. Sheridan Gold also provided a drumming demonstration to help introduce the monthly Drumming Circles which is one of the new offerings at the Songbird Center.



Along with demonstrations and discussion of the healing arts the guests were provided with a bevy of food and drinks from El Toirto and the Kefiry in Sebastopol along with contributions from Songbird practitioners.

The Songbird Community Healing Center is located at 8297 Old Redwood Hwy. in Cotati. For more information regarding their classes or programs, visit them on the web at Songbirdcenter.org or call 795-2398.
