    Our bodies were made to move and flow! Within this movement, we find a deeper connection to our bodies and to all that is. When we dance, our bodies realign, adjust and become fluid with the rhythm of life. Imagine how freeing it would feel to trust your body’s movements completely, knowing it has a rhythm uniquely its own. 

    UdanceUtopia is a moving meditative practice that invokes, awakens and revitalizes our being through free-flowing movement and spontaneous expression of the physical body. All of us carry the memory of dance in our blood and bones. All we need to do is start moving!

    The intent is to offer a fun, safe and sacred space for all to explore, feel and express fully how their body wants to move and to discover a new way to feel yourself exist in your own amazing body. When we open the flow of our physical being, all other pathways open! Dress to move and bring a mat or blanket.

    "The Green Corn Festival" is a Native American ceremony that celebrates the Spring Equinox, a time of renewal and rebirth. It's a time for forgiving others and oneself for past hurts. There will be face painting and dancing, as well as feasting. The face painting is to show your hurts to the world. There is a special circle washing where you pass a bowl of water and wash off that paint. This stands for the renewal of our faith in ourselves and the washing away of pain and hurts you might be hanging onto. There's a special "Thanksgivings" prayer. This is also a time of the Native Naming Ceremony where everyone would get a Native name.

    Please bring something to contribute to the meal.

    Prerequisite: Completion of Reiki I & II.   Please contact Debby with any questions about this. 

    In Usui Reiki, the master classes are divided up so that Reiki practitioners may become a Reiki Master without being a Reiki teacher. (Reiki 3A is the Master class and Reiki 3B is the Reiki Master Teacher Class.) In Reiki 3A, you will learn two more Reiki symbols, ways to do a "psychic surgery," how to do a spirit release, as well as how to clear space energetically. When students make a commitment to complete this level, they often experience opportunities for healing and improving their life, as well as the lives around them. To help with this process, you will learn how to do a Reiki meditation to improve your own life, how to create crystal grids for healing, and intentions and more. 

    If you have taken the Reiki 3A class with this instructor before and want to take  to it again as a refresher course, registration is just $50.

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

    Dialogue, based on the oral tradition of Native American council, has been used with various groups to teach the practice of listening skills and the ways in which to speak from one’s authentic voice. In dialogue, conducted via a council circle, we learn to listen deeply and to speak from the heart. This practice can help you find your truth and articulate it without judgment from others. Dialogue can also help to address inner and outer conflicts. Just listening and speaking in the way of council often unfolds answers to individual and group challenges. It can help you to access and speak from your inner truth. Hearing yourself and others in a new and more profound way, you may come to see something and/or others in a completely different light. Together we will learn the techniques of and engage in authentic dialogue as we embrace this ancient practice.

    “To listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.”

    –Poet and spiritual leader, Mark Nepo
