Gongtopia It’s unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Imagine floating in an ocean of sound, where you can let go of all your stress and worries. Gongs, Singing Bowls, Bells, and other instruments ring out, creating waves of vibrations that wash over you. Your body and energy systems are able to realign and recharge, helping to clear out blockages, while leaving you refreshed and reawakened.
Advanced Registration is appreciated. Walk-ins will be welcomed.

Facilitator: Elaine Hirschenberger
Most of the time we exist in mindlessness, a state of semi-awareness governed by habit and inattention. Mindlessness causes us to suffer, probably more than we are even aware. Mindfulness can be defined in a variety of ways, but simply stated it is a deliberate way of paying attention to what is happening within oneself as it is happening. Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness. It’s paying attention without judgment or evaluation. When we are mindful, we become more mentally alert, we’re more open and attentive and we’re able to perceive ourselves more clearly – as well as observing details that often escape our notice. If you can identify with any of these statements, you may find this monthly group very helpful.
*Note: there must be a minimum of 4 people registered by Friday preceding class in order for class to run.
Thursday, March 28
Facilitator: Deborah K. Gaines, licensed Funeral director/Embalmer
There are many benefits to planning your funeral or celebration of life in advance. Some of them are: to give yourself and loved ones peace of mind, to save money, to make decisions about what type of service you would like to have, to have a chance to talk to others about your choices. "As a licensed funeral director and Reiki Master, I believe in preplanning not only for those reasons but also for your body/mind/spirit. When I speak of preparing for death, I am not suggesting that people rush into death. I am talking about putting intention into living a full life and, when it is time, attempting to be present and making as peaceful of a transition as possible. Dying is an essential part of living. To live life mindfully, death needs to be brought into our awareness."
Wine and refreshments will be served.
