TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATIONS
The most convenient airport is DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth International) [15 miles from Roanoke] and serves most major airlines. DAL (Dallas Love) [29 miles] is served by Delta, Southwest and Virgin America airlines.
Please plan to arrive by the evening prior; as classes begin promptly at 8 a.m. The Studio is open by 7:30 a.m. for a light breakfast and warm welcome. Plan to depart the day after, as the class can end as late as 9 p.m.
If you book a private session with Dr. Kweethai the day before or after the training; upon confirmation of that session, adjust travel and accommodation plans accordingly.
On a first-come-first-served basis, students can arrange for a bed-and-breakfast (B&B) accommodation with Ms. Donna Warbog (817-915- 8069) for $50 per night; directly across the street from iHealth Center. If you do not want to rent a car, Ms. Warborg can also arrange airport pickup and return. There is a fee, but it is less than cab fare.
PLEASE NOTE: Ms. Warborg has two house dogs. They are mature and friendly; but if you are allergic to animals, please make other arrangements.
Hotels in Roanoke include Comfort Inn, Hampton Inn, and Best Western ($$). Two Marriott facilities ($$$); Champion Circle [Texas Motor Speedway] and Solana Westlake; are about 4 miles away.
The City of Roanoke enjoys the title of “The Unique Dining Capital of Texas.” Within walking distance from iHealth Center there are numerous boutique restaurants, so you can easily walk to lunch and dinner.
Classes are held in the Studio of Harmony (behind iHealth Center). We do not wear shoes inside iHealth Center or the Studio. You are welcome to bring your own socks, use ours or be comfortably barefoot.
Snacks and tea are available through the day.
We have a tradition of bringing a Qi raiser to the class. Every student brings a small, meaningful token as a gift for everyone else in the class. To maintain chi, or energy, sharing occurs at certain times throughout the week. The Qi-raiser should be a token from your heart. You will be informed closer to the meeting time as to how many students are in the class. Please, do not spend much on this; make it more meaningful than expensive. This tradition brings smiles and raises the Qi in the space.
(The artwork depicted at left was a Chi-raiser for Dr. Kweethai's home to commemorate the Year of the Dragon. It is NOT an example of a class Chi-raiser, but does suggest that Dr. Kweethai lives as she teaches others to live.)
