    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.

    Facilitator: Debby Gaines


    Prerequisite: Previous Reiki I & II certification is required to sign-up.  Please contact Debby with any questions about this.

    This day-long class is set-up for Reiki students who have already received their Reiki I & II training but feel like they need a refresher. Are you feeling drawn to start offering Reiki sessions but you would like to ask some questions first? Is it time to move forward to the Reiki Master Level (Reiki 3A) but it’s been awhile since you’ve taken Reiki I and II? This class will include a lot of hands-on learning with each student having the chance to give at least one full Reiki session (as well as receiving a session).  Each one of you will receive the printed materials for both classes again so that you have them to review the symbols, mantras, and to refer to as questions come up. We will also practice centering, grounding, and sending distance Reiki. 

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

    Inspired by a true story, this Golden Globe winning drama is the first film made in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban.  

    After the brutal Taliban regime bans women from working and forbids them to leave their homes without a male escort, a 12-year-old girl and her mother find themselves on the brink of starvation. With nowhere left to turn, the mother disguises her daughter as a boy. Now called “Osama,” the young girl embarks on a terrifying and confusing journey, as she tries to keep the Taliban from discovering her true identity. PG-13; 82 min.

    We will start with supper, followed by the film and then a discussion of the film, characters, and artistry.

    Advanced Registration REQUIRED for food counts. NO WALK-INS.

    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.

    My story of "why" is a result of a long journey of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, occupational, social, and relational knock-outs. If you have ever watched a MMA fight, you see the fighter's simultaneous desperation and determination to win the fight. Similarly, I have felt the pain, frustration, confusion, despair, and the feeling of drowning in stagnant water as a result of life's rapid fire assaults. From being an abused child, a teen mother, homeless at 18, diagnosed with an autoimmune illness at 19, and experiences beyond what seems "normal" in life, I finally decided that just barely keeping my head at surface level was not the life I was destined to live.

    Identifying my life’s calling and distinct mission propelled me to a place where I can use my pain to help others achieve their best. I have not “arrived” but instead, focus on the journey of exploration and growth. My story shares what it is to be human, and how to move from a place of surviving to thriving!!

    Reiki shares are times when Reiki practitioners, people who are interested in Reiki, and those who would like to receive Reiki come together in a common space to share energy, food, and some conversation. Maybe you have heard about Reiki but have never had a session or you have gone through Reiki training and want a chance to practice and get to know like-minded people! Please join us and bring a dish to pass. We will provide the plates, silverware, and glasses. The Reiki share will begin at 7:00 pm. If you have a Reiki table, please bring it!

    Advanced registration is appreciated so we know how many people to expect!  

    Freewill donations are accepted.

    Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. With regular practice, Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression. Additionally, Yoga Nidra is beneficial for insomnia, aids in calming symptoms of chronic pain, and has been shown to help those with PTSD or other psychological wounds. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4 hours or sleep! Learn this practice of self-inquiry. Restore your energy and relax into the real you. Expect to spend the majority of this class reclined on your yoga mat on the floor. (Please talk with Keri before class begins if you need to be seated.) Class is open to all. No experience necessary. Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat. Advance registration preferred. Walk-ins Allowed.

    We are delighted to be able to offer a once a month support group that focuses on sharing from the perspective of our soul and higher self. This group will work equally well for those who already have information about chakras and would like further exploration, and for those who are new to these ideas. The purpose of the Chakra Club is to help us find deeper meaning, wholeness, and healing--as we tap into our higher consciousness in sharing our personal experiences and combined wisdom. The chakras connect our minds and bodies with our souls and higher consciousness. As we bring healing to our inner selves, our true soul-selves shine forth; and we increase our ability to create lives that work and are truly fulfilling. (Originally created and offered by Marcia (Phillips) West--Bridges of Unity).

    Have you ever experienced something you just can't explain and haven't been able to talk about it? Do you get feelings that you know something is going to happen? Do you think you see something and then it isn't there? Have you been somewhere and suddenly feel your hair raising on your arms, or feel a cold chill run through your body? Do you have pictures or video of unexplained objects or balls of light? In this group we will share our experiences, pictures, videos, and stories we have with the unknown in a safe, nurturing, and nonjudgemental environment. 


    Members of the group may choose to go on field trips and learn how to use different equipment to gain better insight on what we are experiencing.
