ONLINE: Unwrapping Presence: A Mindfulness Meditation Journey

Nov 20 (F) 12-1pm $35 (Pre-Registration Required) Presented virtually via Zoom
Living a Mindful life begins with paying attention but in a very particular way.  It involves non judgemental observation and acceptance.  Where do we stand to cultivate this kind of view? For many, it comes with a clear understanding of what we refer to as self.  

In this session we will explore the transient nature of the relative self and embrace the absolute,  silent, and accepting observer Self.  Through discussion and guided practice, we will “unwrap” our true presence as loving awareness.

ONLINE: You Are The Medicine You Need: A Simple Self-Healing Workshop to Release Stress and Restore the Spirit

Oct 22 (Th) 12-1pm $30 (Pre-registration required) Presented Virtually via Zoom
If you're feeling tired of people yet craving connection, and know you need some space away from the noise to hear your own voice again, this workshop was created for you.

Join us for a mini-retreat of therapeutic writing, movement, music, and deep self-compassion practice. This is self-healing and empowerment work done privately, in community. 

All of the practices we do can be done on your own, at home, whenever you need to. It's about releasing stress from the mind, the body, and the heart. Freed in this way, you can regain the clarity, focus, and energy you need to face each day anew.
