Songbird Community Healing Center will re-open its doors at its new building Wednesday, January 2, across the street from their current location in downtown Cotati.

Entering its third year in business this month, Songbird purchased the larger facility at 8297 Old Redwood Highway in November in order to expand its calendar of lectures, workshops, classes and private sessions for clients. With fresh green paint, landscaping and a new Songbird sign, the center seeks to increase its visibility and services.

“We wanted to custom design a much bigger space that will allow more people to experience the diverse healing modalities the Songbird community offers,” said clinic director Jasmine Gold.

The 900-square-foot main room, increased from 700, makes the space more usable for new events such as kirtan chanting, drumming, dance and larger yoga classes in addition to regular services such as Reiki energy healing, chakra balancing, massage, hypnotherapy, psychic readings, tarot card readings, Feldenkrais and sound healing to integrate body, mind and spirit.

Two new private rooms have also been added to expand the capabilities of their 18 practitioners, increased from 14. With three times more space than before, Songbird anticipates a 20%-25% increase in attendance over the next three months.

Weekday drop-in hours, with a sliding scale of $1-2 per minute, will resume at the new location in January. Anyone can sign up for a weekly or biweekly class, such as Drumming into your Bliss, which begins Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 11 a.m.

Songbird will also expand its monthly workshops and events, starting with Dani Burling’s Four Secrets to Successful Money Management, a workshop that uses 50,000-year-old shamanic wisdom from the Q’ero of Peru, from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5.

They’ll continue the Hands Of Gold Healing Clinic every second and fourth Tuesday from 7:30-9:30 p.m. People can try out mini-sessions with a variety of practitioners for a suggested donation of $20-40.

The new Songbird Community Healing Center

The new space, located next to Cotati Creek, was home to the Rancho Bodega School for more than 30 years. The alternative, private secondary school vacated the building last spring and moved to a new location in Rohnert Park. The building still houses a tattoo shop upstairs.

Songbird Community Healing Center will hold its grand reopening from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, for an afternoon of celebration, community, inspiration and education. There will be short talks and mini-sessions as well as local art, refreshments, a ribbon cutting and keynote presentation by Dr. Marcey Shapiro, on Transforming the Nature of Health.
