    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion.  Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation.  It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance.  The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue.  Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1 1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.  

    Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome.  Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended-clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs.  Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine.  Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.

    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

This is a beginning class where different forms of meditation are introduced and practiced in a seated position. Bring a yoga mat or rug if you would like to do this lying down.

    It's a fact: women face different financial concerns than men. Even though most women worry that they'll run out of money in retirement, many do not feel confident enough to seek advice for their finances. When you plan for financial future and address your concerns, you reduce stress for yourself and for your family members. We want to help you move through life's transitions feeling financially secure and stable, so we'll walk through those concerns and and more. We’ll have ample time for a Q&A session, so please bring your questions. Wine and dessert will be provided.

    Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Force Energy' and describes the energy found in all of life.  An ancient form of hands on energy healing, Reiki is a skill obtained through an attunement (opening) to bring the power of Universal Life Force Energy through the human chakra system.  The energy then is used to balance the body or an object by bringing it into harmony with the universe once again.

    In Reiki One, you will learn the hand positions for self-healing and for the healing treatment of others.  We will talk about the seven major chakras and the history of the Usui System of Natural Healing.  You will receive your first attunement. We will also have time to practice feeling energy and giving Reiki to each other.

    Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes. Bring a sack lunch.

    Did you know?


    Kombucha is made by placing a SCOBY in sweet tea and allowing the tea to ferment 7 to 21 days. SCOBY stands for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast. The kombucha brewing jar needs to be covered with a cloth and placed in a ventilated area out of direct sunlight.

    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.

    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.

    This class will be perfect for anyone who wants to learn the basics of creating pottery on a pottery wheel or someone with little experience who wants to further develop their skills. Learn essential wheel-throwing techniques from centering to trimming. Mugs and small vases will be the first forms we practice throwing on the wheel. Then enhance these pieces with hand-built elements such as handles and decorating the surfaces with underglaze, sgrafitto, and more. This class will give the student with little or no experience the opportunity to learn and develop a basic set of wheel-throwing skills. After taking this class, the student will take with them a small collection of functional wheel-thrown pottery as well as the confidence and skills needed to create more advanced pieces in the future.

    Come learn Byron Katie’s deeply trans formative process called “The Work.” This class is offered to provide a way to assist individuals to approach their problems from a perspective of clarity and inner peace. It is an astonishing simple, yet powerful method of inquiry involving four questions and a “turnaround” which will resolve lingering issues and show that suffering is ultimately based on a misunderstanding – our own. All answers are within you and “The Work” is a tool to assist you in finding the happiness and peace within you. We will use the text Loving What Is by Byron Katie and is available on Amazon.com.

    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion.  Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation.  It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance.  The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue.  Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1 1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.  

    Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome.  Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended-clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs.  Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine.  Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.  

    Advance registration ends two days before each class.
