Ama Tara Center is once again offering its Barefoot Doctor Community Acupuncture Clinic on Thursdays from 1 to 3 p.m. The cost is a sliding scale donation of $20 to $40.

“As a gift to our community we also offer a weekly silent meditation gathering from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. each Friday morning,” says acupuncturist Stacy Romillah. “When we meditate in community our individual consciousness supports and uplifts those around us, intensifying our own experience and offering. There is a variety of seating and everyone is welcome.”

For more than two years, Ama Tara has offered acupuncture, massage, yoga and meditation to the Orcas community.  This spring Stefanie Greenleaf, licensed acupuncturist, is joining Romillah and licensed massage therapist Chama Anderson at Ama Tara Center.

Greenleaf wrapped up her life in Oregon and moved to the island in September to join her partner, Matthew. She is a lover of the outdoors and is also a teacher of Anusara yoga and offers classes at Orcas Mandala.

Ama Tara Center is located on Prune Alley next door to the Homegrown Market. Call 376-5900 or visit
