Home – Overview of Great Things To Do at AWC


“Creating a positive change in your lifestyle can be challenging; thus having caring skilled practitioners added with the convenience of a safe accessible space would only enhance your quest for that goal. We are here for you!” ~Abundant Wellness Center

Please Note: 1) Please DO NOT wear any type of cologne or perfume as several people here have sensitivity to them. 2) We are a shoe free environment inside the building so we urge you to bring slippers or indoor shoes if you’d like.  After a heavy rain or the winter’s thaw the parking lot is generally a bit muddy.  We encourage clients to wear rubber boots like rain slickers or shoes that aren’t your Sunday’s best. Thanks for understanding – we just want to give you the heads up!  3) Please pre-register for any event and let us know if you can’t make it at least a few days before as some of our teachers travel a ways to get here. We love to offer all these great classes however we really love to see commitment in attendance.  4) Let us know if you’d like to sign up for our monthly newletter.  

See what’s new: 

> Yes!  the Celtic Cretan Labyrinth is nearly complete. Come learn, share and connect to the sacred energy of building an ancient spiritual space dedicated to Mother Earth. Looking for volunteers – folks who’d like to either dedicate time in building the Labyrinth or donating monetary contributions to the AWC Community Garden or both!  Please let Debee know if you are interested in contributing in any way – this is going to be a fabulous walking meditation Labyrinth with an altar to offer a prayer, song, poem, or stone.

We will be planning on planting thyme in the Labyrinth in late June – the month of our 12th Anniversary (date TBA) and the Blessing of the Labyrinth will be in July (date TBA)!

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” — Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

> NEW Type of Healing/ Reading here…  These readings provide a loving and compassionate insight to explore one’s self-growth by helping to clear blockages, give direction and loving advice to get to the next step on their path, to connect with the knowledge and wisdom for their highest good or provide a healing within the record energy of their soul.  The type of reading one receives is specific for their needs at that time…no two readings are the same!  The Akashic Records are a field of energy that holds the individual record of a soul from its point of origin until the end of time.  This field keeps a record of all ones thoughts, emotions, words and actions generated by their experiences.  Melissa Dorman is an experienced healer and reader of the Akashic Records, which is a complete record of each soul’s journey.  Healings given in the Records after a reading are an amazingly easy way for one to clear, transmute or integrate new changes into their life.  All readings come from a genuine place of love and compassion to help one for their best and highest good.

The following is a list of services being offered Melissa on Mondays & Thursdays from 12-6pm or by appt:

30 Minute Reading                                               $50.00

60 Minute Reading                                               $100.00

“Accessing my Akashic Records with Melissa was an amazing journey.  I highly recommend spending some time with her.  I will definitely be returning for further information from them.”   –Susan L.

“I asked Melissa a question about my spiritual practice because I knew my meditation needed to be customized.  During my Akashic Records Reading, Melissa tapped into a perfectly organic way that I can connect to the Divine during meditation.  It feels soul right!” ~ Debee B.
