It’s the start of a brand new year and it’s time to make those resolutions (and hopefully keep them this time). The New Year brings out feeling of hope and new beginnings. It’s basically the ‘Monday’ of the year (you know, because you always want to start that diet on a Monday/because ‘I’ll start my diet/workout/paper on Monday). Take this fresh start to set good habits and become a better version of you. For most of us, practicing self-care and deepening spirituality is at the top of the New Year’s resolution list. Love and Light Energy Café services Living in the city can be quite stressful. We can get bogged down by or caught up in the every day grind, making it hard for us to practice self-care. Love and Light Energy Café, which opened last December in Pwesto Community Mall in Quezon City, offers a reprieve from the mad world we live in and promotes health and balance. Tucked into a quaint complex of specialty boutiques, restaurants, cafés, eateries, and even a co-working space, Love and Light Energy Café welcomes anyone and everyone to refresh their spirits and take a breather from the hustle and bustle of city life. They offer something special; the café houses a select group of healers and teachers with different specialities (ranging from acupuncture to Tarot card reading) to share their practices with those in need of energy uplifting. And of course, enjoy a good cup of coffee as well. The café’s doors are open to anyone and to all practices and modalities. It’s a small space packed with good energy. You’ll feel it as soon as you enter the calming yellow interiors. Soft mood music is played in the background and the scent of freshly brewed coffee fills the air. Salt lamps, crystals, Tarot Cards, Angel Cards, are displayed for sale on the shelves. Books on spirituality and higher learning are also stacked on the shelves for customers to peruse. There is a loft and two rooms where healers can conduct sessions and consultations. Salt lamps, crystals, Tarot Cards, Angel Cards, are displayed for sale on the shelves. Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine’s Guardian Angel Tarot Cards for highly sensitive people who wants to hear messages in sweet, accurate, and detailed answers from their reading Enjoy a cafè latte and browse through the for sale selections of crystals, stones, Tarot Cards, and Angel Cards View from the loft Kindred spirits Hazel Señeres, Joshua Borja, Wilma Galvante, Gigi Lara and Celine Clemente, decided to open a café that offers something unique. “All of us are into higher learning and spirituality,” Hazel shares. “We decided to have something different, because in this area, there are already different coffee shops.” Hazel, a Reiki healer, ThetaHealer, and Pranic healer, is not a newbie when it comes to coffee shops, as she had three coffee shops before (Original Filipino Coffee and Our Father’s Coffee). But their main draw isn’t their coffee. “Our primary product is actually the healing,” says Hazel. They set up the place almost like a clinic, where each of the healers is an energy doctor with specialties. L-R: Al Cerbo (Barista), Tato Malay (Inspirational Speaker), Yeyette San Luis (Sound Healer), Rhegan Calimotan (Barista), Anna Liza Gatucao (Theta healer), Hazel M Señeres (Owner/General Manager), Joshua Borja (Tarot Reader/ life coach), Ferdinand Dayro (Acupuncture), and Jennifer Roc Guasis (Graphologist) The menu is simple and straightforward. They serve coffee, herbal teas and some pastries. Head barista/baker (bakerista) Al Cerbo, who has been with Hazel since Our Father’s Coffee, makes fresh baked pastries every day and brews great coffee. We sampled his Belgian chocolate muffin with malunggay, which was delicious and filling, without the heaviness you feel after eating baked goods. They can also suggest beverages if you’re feeling under the weather. “We offer a selection of herbal teas,” says Hazel. “If they have an ailment or whatnot, we have different concoctions of teas to help them out.” Their Energized coffee is organic and sourced from Benguet (80% Arabica, 20% Robusta). They meditate on it and send positive energy to the coffee beans to infuse your cup of java with some good vibes. They also sell them in packs, so you can enjoy Energized coffee in the comfort of your own home. Here are our favorites from the Love and Light Energy Café beverage options: Bulletproof Coffee – Made with their Energized coffee, virgin coconut oil and grass-fed butter, blended together to get that creamy consistency. It almost looks like a cappuccino, with foam on top. You pull the coffee through your lips and you taste that deep coffee flavor with a hint of coconuty sweetness. It has no bitterness and is not acidic. It gives you energy, keeps you full for a long time, boosts cognitive functions and maintains mental clarity. Plus, it’s Keto diet-friendly. What more can you ask for? Tiger’s Eye – Named after the crystal because they share the same hues, this is cold drink is caffeine to the extreme. Made of iced energized coffee, with espresso ice cubes, condensed milk, fresh milk and an extra shot of espresso, Tiger’s Eye is sure to keep you buzzing for quite a while. This is the boost you need when you feel the afternoon siesta mood creeping in and will keep you going until late evening. Tiger’s Eye Fresh Ginger Tea – This invigorating iced tea is sweet but has a lingering spicy ginger finish. It has fresh ginger cut into thin strips, which you can chew on for a more intense ginger flavor. Fresh Lemongrass Tea – When the temperature rises or when your blood starts to boil, this refreshing drink with a base of black tea, mixed with lemongrass extract, lemon, raw sugar, and garnished with lemongrass that you can use as a stirrer will cool you down. Fresh Ginger Tea and Fresh Lemongrass Tea “Our goal is to elevate, inform, heal, and educate people,” continues Joshua Borja, who is also a healer. “People can come here to relax, hit the pause button on the world, recharge and reset.” They have big plans for the café. “The main mission of the Love and Light Energy Café is to put up a pillar of light in Quezon City. We want to share our positive energy in the whole of Quezon City and then eventually branch out to other parts of Metro Manila, wherein those centers will create and share positive energy and healing energy to the whole area,” he shares. “We want to create a grid of positive energy within the whole of Metro Manila.” It might sound farfetched, and some might be sceptical about the premise of the place, but a lot of thought and care was put into establishing the café. Joshua, the head healer of Love and Light, spent months deciding on their line-up of trained and gifted healers. “I asked my healer friends for recommendations. Then I meditated on the names, to see who would resonate with Love and Light,” he shared. “We all bring something unique to the table and we all encourage each other to further improve our practices.” They hold different kinds of workshops and lectures promoting higher consciousness. They also have by-donation sessions and workshops as well, so those who can’t afford or commit to paying for a full session can get a taste of what they have to offer. Yoga classes will be available eventually. With such good intentions and a unique combination of café and healing center, we hope that Love and Light Energy Café achieves its goals of spreading positive energy to the whole of Metro Manila, one café at a time.
