Reiki, Consciousness and Costa Rica: Gerry and Lindsay’s Healing Arts Collaboration

Each year, Gerry Stowers and Lindsay Erickson, the Red Wing Healing Arts Village Coordinators, passionately create a healing arts experience festival goers will never forget. Gerry and Lindsay are Reiki Master Teachers who live to promote an authentic life of self care practices that heal the whole person – body, mind and spirit.  Gerry first sought Lindsay for holistic nutrition advice for her youngest son Zane after attending a “Self-Care” workshop at The Nest, a local Harrisonburg yoga studio. Their relationship continued over the years with spiritually sharing in Reiki energy sessions, massage, a Yoga/Reiki retreat in Costa Rica, and Human Design readings.  Both Lindsay and Gerry enjoy a love of cycling, nature, and yoga.  As lovers of a grand adventure and superb festival music experiences, they artfully created a Reiki/Massage booth at Floydfest and first partnered in 2022 to create the first Cooperative Healing Arts Village for Red Wing. Local Healing arts vendors are carefully selected by Gerry and Lindsay to promote a professional, safe and affordable way for Red Wing fans to sample the best of the best in local healing arts techniques. Get to know the twelve Healing Arts vendors below!

Gerry Stowers is an intuitive practitioner of the healing arts and owns her practice, Meditation in Motion, in Downtown Staunton.  During her two decades of extensive study and travel, she has adventured across the globe, learning ancient healing practices. Gerry has studied and practiced a myriad of energetic modalities; she is a massage therapist, a Reiki Master, a yoga instructor, and a practitioner of Chinese Medicine. She recently graduated with a degree in Acupuncture from Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine. Gerry is also skilled in acupressure and reflexology.

The goal behind Gerry’s work is for everyone to know and connect with their own divinity. She seeks to help individuals discover and shine their own light.

Throughout her explorations and education, Gerry has come to understand the healing power of energy work. Everything is energy- as such, we have the ability to work with the elemental forces to transmute and heal both physical and emotional suffering. Gerry’s deep interest in medicine is lifelong. She experienced a cosmic transformation during a 2004 pilgrimage to Costa Rica, where a connection with Nature guided her on a journey of spiritual transformation.

After this profound experience, Gerry began her study of Reiki. The beautiful simplicity of Reiki resonates with Gerry; she is now honored to share the knowledge of this spiritual energy with her community.

During her practice of Reiki, Gerry has worked in hospital with mothers who have just given birth, helping to guide new spirits through the Gates of Light. She has also worked with the hospice community for the last decade at Augusta Health, lovingly holding space & guiding individuals who are preparing to transition. As a gatekeeper, Gerry endeavors to help people to remember their divinity. She appreciates Reiki’s powerful ability to facilitate energetic exchanges on the non-verbal level, where deep transformative healing can occur. Gerry Stower’s mission is to help others to remember that wherever they are, they are safe. When we learn to shine our own light, the path to healing is always possible.

Blissful Studio & Healing Center

Owner/Practioner, Cheryl Martin, an energy healer for the past 20 years, is originally from the Valley and continually grateful to practice in such a beautiful region and within our wonderful community. 

During healing sessions, Blissful Healing Arts draws from a combination of healing techniques such as Reiki, Stone Medicine, Healing Touch and channeling/mediumship, depending on the clients desires. The results are usually deep relaxation and sense of peacefulness. For those with specific questions concerning life or loved ones, channeling/mediumship or tarot/oracle readings are more well suited. These sessions allow for powerful and often reassuring insights and messages to flow through.

Eleanor felt the call toward healing touch early in life. She is trained in reflexology and reiki in addition to body art. Her first henna tattoo inspired her immensely and she began dreaming about doing henna herself, determined to practice and hone her skills. What began as an artistic hobby gradually grew into a profession doing something she loves, as she shared henna with more and more people. A great admirer of the traditional Indian style, the intricate lacy elegance of it, she is also influenced by the beauty she sees in nature and the world around her as well as the countless amazing artists on instagram.
Certified in natural henna, her blend is made with lemon juice, jagua, essential oils and sugar for a deep brown stain that lasts about 2 weeks. Sparkle hair is the tie in of shimmery silk strands to individual hairs. They last anywhere from a day to many months.
Mariza Dovis has had 13 years of experience in integrative healing arts and approaches her clients holistically. As a certified massage therapist and practitioner of Stone Medicine, her services and intuitive approach allows for a deep restoration that will satiate you to allow for noticeable rejuvenation and relaxation to enhance your Red Wing experience.
The best sessions have been through the sweet rains, the hot sun relieved with cold stones and the sweet sounds of the festival. The elements are as much a part of the experience so book your session early as all slots sold out last year. Mariza spends a lot of her time tending to her passions with her family, gardens and art. She hopes to bring some small art pieces with her to sell this year as well.

I’m a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner and I’m studying Biofield Tuning and Ecotherapy. I’ve had a long history of working with trauma. I volunteered with the Sexual Assault Resource Agency in Charlottoesville for over 20 years. I’ve volunteered doing energy work at OCP, STAR, RMH Sentara, Wildrock, and many more places. My passion is helping people in their healing journey.
