    Processing the death of a loved one is uniquely personal, and sometimes you need a soul-satisfying emotional release, which can be found in the creative arts. This course is about exploring and expressing emotions that are sometimes very hard to put into words. In a safe and comfortable environment, you will be able to creatively express your grief through the use of journaling, painting, memorializing, and other creative artistic media. There is no skill level needed, and no judgment of anyone's creativity. Just come, keep an open mind, have fun with this, and explore your own creativity and soul.

    The Last Days of Café Leila 
    by Donia Bijan

    Set against the backdrop of Iran’s rich, turbulent history, this exquisite debut novel is a powerful story of food, family, and a bittersweet homecoming. When we first meet Noor, she is living in San Francisco, missing her beloved father, Zod, in Iran. Now, dragging her stubborn teenage daughter, Lily, with her, she returns to Tehran and to Café Leila, the restaurant her family has been running for three generations. Iran may have changed, but Café Leila, still run by Zod, has stayed blessedly the same—it is a refuge of laughter and solace for its makeshift family of staff and regulars. As Noor revisits her Persian childhood, she must rethink who she is. Together, she and Lily get swept up in the beauty and brutality of Tehran.

    Are you tired of constantly organizing and maintaining all the stuff you hardly use? Come and explore how minimalism can really help you simplify your life. In this three-stage approach you will learn how to free yourself from the slavery of “more is better.”

    September 13 - Minimalism Stage I
    In Stage I, you will have an opportunity to get started and take the first steps toward a new lifestyle. Discover a new approach to removing all the stuff and commitments from life that may be holding you back from being happy. By only allowing what aligns with your most important values to take up your space and time, you will discover how a few simple steps can lead to living a happier, more purposeful life.

    October 18  - Minimalism Stage II
    After de-cluttering, purging, donating, and tossing the unnecessary stuff from your life, Stage II will give you the opportunity to take a closer look at your possessions and get rid of anything which failed to catch your attention the first time. Create a more intentional approach towards life. Learn to do a digital detox. Learn to shop like a minimalist. Become a strict editor of what you allow in your home and life.

    November 15 - Minimalism Stage III
    Dive deep into the sea of minimalism. In this final Stage, you will take a closer look at your finances and spending habits. Find out how something as simple as unsubscribing from certain email lists can help decrease temptation and improve your spending habits.  Learn other ways to live more simply as you improve your budget and reduce waste.

    Chakras are vital energy pathways that connect us to the cycles and rhythms of the Earth, to all aspects of ourselves and to the cosmic pulse of Creation. Chakra Rhythms is a moving meditation practice that invokes, awakens and revitalizes our seven major Chakra centers through a fusion of free flowing movement and spontaneous expression of the physical body. By surrendering to the music and moving from the inside out, we are able to free our natural energy flows and experience how each Chakra makes us feel. The possibility and potential within each Chakra center is waiting to be revealed and released! No dance experience is needed. It is an opportunity to simply Be. Be with yourself in motion to music within community, each having our own personal inner experience and embracing our own healing process.

    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 existing in your own body. When we open the flow of our physical being, all other pathways open and all we seek shall be revealed! At the conclusion of Chakra Rhythms we feel an enlightened awareness of our bodies, minds and spirits as well as a connection to our chakra system as a whole. Dress to move and bring a mat or blanket. 

    We rarely hear the inward music but we are dancing to it nonetheless- Rumi

    Just as food sustains the human body, flowers nourish the human soul and enhance emotional and psychological well being. Essences of flowers expand our understanding of health and interweave the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical aspects. Flower essences address the subtle yet important realm of the human psyche, where thoughts and feelings emanate. Join us to celebrate the beauty, joy, and subtle healing potential of flowers and flower essences in this 2 hour class--where we will view a video of edible flowers, and create a flower essence combination--to nurture our individual souls and spirits. Each participant will have a sample to take home. (Content about flower essences adapted from a Flower Essence Society brochure--FESQuintessentials--www.fesflowers.com)

There will be a 30 min (of) Q&A session so bring ALL your questions. Don’t continue to ignore this important aspect of your life, it’s NOT that hard when you are informed.

    Bladder leakage is NOT normal and should never be accepted as a NORMAL part of aging or as a natural consequence to giving birth. Yet, statistics show that 1 in 4 women over the age of 18 will develop a pelvic floor muscle dysfunction (PFMD) at some point in their lives.  Education is the key to prevention. Empowering yourself toward learning crucial selfcare tips now can help you reduce or eliminate any symptoms you might notice today. PFMD symptoms can include bladder leakage, urgency/frequency, organ prolapse/pelvic pressure, constipation, painful intercourse, and more.  We will learn what the pelvic floor is, how it affects, and is affected by, everything in your life. In this class you will learn 3 habits that could not only make the difference in taking back bladder control but improving your bowel and sexual health.

    Our Souls at Night
    by Kent Haruf

    In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis's wife. His daughter lives hours away, her son even farther, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in empty houses, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. But maybe that could change? A beautiful story of second chances, Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writer's enduring contribution to American literature.

    Our night time dreams carry both personal and collective messages to guide us on our journeys. Once we become familiar with the dream language (which is much like poetry) we get to receive amazing insights into our waking lives. Your dreams would like to have a relationship with you! Come to the dream circle and have fun with your dreams. No experience necessary.

    From women’s longer life span which may require additional retirement funds and long-term care assistance to potential changes in (changing) marital status, women face different financial concerns than men. Even though most women worry that they'll run out of money in retirement they do not feel confident enough to discuss these concerns with a financial advisor - don't be that woman. When you plan for these possible situations, you reduce stress for yourself and for your family members and move through life's transitions feeling financially secure and stable. In this relaxed setting, 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.

    Each cell of our physical body is brimming with intelligence and wisdom. Physical symptoms and negative emotions are one of the ways this intelligence communicates with us by creating disruptions in our energy system. With EFT (Energy Field Tapping) we tap directly on energy meridians and get the energy flowing again. When energy flows we feel more at ease and enjoy a greater sense of well being. It’s easy! All it takes is curiosity, fingers and a body! This introduction into the amazingly simple and effective world of tapping will empower you to continue tapping ANYWHERE!

    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.

    Book Discussion: Sister Citizen by Melissa V. Harrris-Perry


    Facilitated by Representative Litesa Wallace and Karen Gutierrez

    Melissa V. Harris-Perry gives us a groundbreaking book that explores stereotypes such as lasciviousness, devotion, and outspoken anger that black women encounter every day in contemporary American life. These hurtful and dishonest representations shame and shape their experiences as citizens. The book uses multiple perspectives to understand more deeply--black women's political and emotional responses to race and gender images. Sister Citizen explores how African American women understand themselves as citizens and how a shared struggle to preserve the authentic self, links all women together.

A guide to inner healing through forgiveness, the Course weaves compassion and wisdom together in a way that is both practical and straightforward. Yet sometimes it can seem dense and intimidating. Join us for an overview of the Course, including what it is, how it came to be and different ways to approach it. Each student will receive a copy of “an introduction to A Course in Miracles” published by Miracle Distribution Center.
