Spring Equinox Celebration
w/Lynda Aiman-Smith
Wednesday, March 20; 3:30 – 5:00 PM

Circles of sound gather around the world to celebrate the first day of spring, as we weave our sacred sounds and consciousness with the intentions of harmony, acceptance, unity, joy, compassion, love, and appreciation for all living beings of the planet.

Bring a friend, a crystal bowl, bells, didgeridoos, flutes, drums, rattles, or any other sacred instrument.

We invite everyone to “Join the circle and share the sound!”

Joni Kay Rose

The Four Noble Truths of Buddhism
w/Joni Kay Rose

Six consecutive Sundays, beginning March 24; 1:00 – 2:30 PM

Join Joni Kay Rose for this 4-class workshop, to be held four consecutive Sunday afternoons, March 24, March 31, April 7, and April 14, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM.  We'll discuss each of the Four Noble Truths in order, beginning the first March 24  session with a brief overview of the Four Noble Truths, followed by a more detailed look at the First Noble Truth, dukkha (a sanskrit term, translated loosely as "unsatisfactoryness").

The March 31 session will review the First Noble Truth, dukkha, then proceed to the Second Noble Truth, tanha or addictive craving, which we'll contrast with sankappa or aspiration, that we'll encounter again in the fourth class. The third session will review the first two Noble Truths before  proceeding to the Third Noble Truth, nirvana or the cessation of suffering. The fourth session will summarize the Noble Eightfold Path.

While it may be easier for students to begin with the first session, the weekly review of the previous material may help latecomers catch up. Each session will conclude with a brief meditation.

By donation.

Move Better, Feel Better with Feldenkrais!
w/Dixie Dexter

Six consecutive Wednesdays, beginning March 27; 1:30 – 2:30 PM

This Feldenkrais series is an immersion into Feldenkrais lessons which bring about improvements in the body's co-ordination, comfort and the ability to function efficiently. The lessons are safe, enjoyable and immediately effective for people of all ages and abilities.

Feldenkrais classes are innovative, gentle and very effective to help people to move optimally with ease and comfort (and leave pain in the past).

Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais developed the method in the course of his own rehabilitation from injury and found that it was very helpful to others on their journey back into wellness.  Sports-minded people also find it helpful for optimal performance.

Cost: $5, attend one, some, or all six-classes.
