Barbara Bacyinski
Healing Arts

My name is Barbara Bacyinski and I have volunteered to teach various arts and crafts for The Lake House.

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Art from the University of Detroit and a Master of Arts Degree in Art Education from Northern Arizona University. I also have professional self-development at Wayne State University.

Most of my years of employment were at Fitzgerald Public Schools in Warren, Michigan. I taught art for grades 1 through 12, as well as a variety of other subjects. Previously, I volunteered at the Van Elslander Cancer Center and worked there for several years, helping patients with art projects, and assisting in various art exhibits.

At The Lake House I have assisted groups interested in making simple jewelry projects and watercolor painting. I also worked painting “The Lake House Lighthouse” found outside the building front. I am open to teaching other areas of art, where there is an interest.

Sharon Khouri

Hi, my name is Sharon Khouri. I am a certified Reiki Master since 2011.

I have a passion for the healing arts and helping others. I am honored to be able to provide Reiki treatments to members of The Lake House. It is such an inspiring group of people and a positive, encouraging environment.

If you have not tried Reiki, what are you waiting for? Reiki is simply healing energy. It will help you relax and reach a calm, meditative state. Come dressed comfortably and give yourself a treat.
