Experience the healing impact of sound through the vibration of drums, singing bowls, shakers, chimes, wood instruments, vocal toning, and maybe even some movement.

It empowers people to more effectively express themselves, while enabling them to move beyond their perceived limitations and put back into their lives what is missing."

    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.

    When someone we love dies, we begin a grief journey that is often frightening, painful, lonely and at times overwhelming. In order to move towards healing, we need to be willing to learn about and understand the grief process. We need to give ourselves the permission, time and compassion to mourn our loss. This lunch and learn will introduce the natural process of grief, how to move towards healing, and how to best support and companion each other in this life-changing journey.

    The 1973 tennis match between women's World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men's champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the "Battle of the Sexes" and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. Off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today. (2017) PG-13

    All dreams come in the service of health and wholeness, or do they? What about terrifying nightmares? Could they really be of benefit to us? There is a reason the nightmares wake us up trembling in our boots. They come with such great gifts that our psyche does not want us to miss out. Come and enter the land of dreams in a circle of fellow dreamers. All kinds of dreams are welcome... from the "mundane" to recurring to nightmares. In this circle we will mine the golden wisdom in each dream shared. You will leave with tools to support you when those nightmares visit. Bring your curiosity we will explore together.

    Many of us regard our bodies as an endless improvement project and source of embarrassment and shame. The social warnings about what can go wrong and the difficulties of old age are unavoidable. We receive by far more warning messages than celebration messages about our physical bodies. Yet we now scientifically know that we are made up of energy and that energy is always in motion and ever evolving. Tapping (EFT) is one way to challenge long held beliefs, release their energetic hold and choose more empowered ones. It is just as possible to declare that we are "youthing" instead of "aging". Bring your beliefs and skepticism and together we'll tap into a new reality.

    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.

    Starting from scratch, the beginner will learn the essentials on the wheel. We will begin by centering the clay on the wheel and making a bowl. Building on that success, we will progress to mugs and vases where we will have the opportunity to attach handles. Proficient students will have time to make a plate, and/or explore different ways to decorate and alter your thrown forms and express your unique style. The focus of this class is to take the student from where they are, with little or no experience, and foster the skills and confidence to incorporate wheel throwing pottery into their artistic expression.

    The Girl Who Wrote in Silk 
    by Kelli Estes

    Inspired by true events, Kelli Estes's brilliant and atmospheric debut serves as a poignant tale of two women determined to do the right thing. Inara Erickson is exploring her deceased aunt's island estate when she finds an elaborately stitched piece of fabric hidden in the house. As she peels back layer upon layer of the secrets it holds, Inara's life becomes interwoven with that of Mei Lein, a young Chinese girl mysteriously driven from her home a century before. Through the stories Mei Lein tells in silk, Inara uncovers a tragic truth that will shake her family to its core ― and force her to make an impossible choice.

    The current buzz phrase “sitting is the new smoking” refers to not only how sedentary we have become but also the negative physical affects sitting posture has on our health and wellbeing. However, standing or sitting in one place, aka “prolonged static,” throughout our day, cannot be helped most of the time, so why not do it with mindful awareness? The power of education regarding what “normal and comfortable” alignment feels like in your body is the key to being able to not only reproduce it throughout your day at home and work but also empower you to change as your body signals you one moment at t time. Walk away with immediately applicable healthy postural habit tips that are essential for your present and future body’s health.

    This is a one time introductory class to learn this fun and relaxing art form. You don't have to have any previous artistic ability to "Tangle". Even though a tangling creation can look intricate and complicated, once you learn how its done you'll realize how simple it is. By using repetitive patterns and deliberate strokes tangling is an easy way to create beautiful pieces of art. Studies show that tangling increases mental retention, stimulates creativity, improves ones mood, and can be calming during stressful situations. Its like taking a nap and waking up refreshed! Plus, this meditation art form is fun! Supplies will be provided, so just grab a friend and sign up!
