Events & Workshops

Loving Embodiment
w/ Corri Broner

December 5, 12 & 19
5:30 — 6:45 PM

In this 3-class series we will learn the basic techniques to relieve trauma, reduce stress, and befriend the body. When we are emotionally hurt or physically injured, we tend to shut down and turn away. Sometimes this process can disconnect us from our bodies and emotions. Using breath, movement, and intentional awareness, we will unwind unhealthy patterns of behavior and begin to build new, self-nurturing patterns, which can lead to deeper relaxation, and compassion for ourselves.  Attend one, two, or all three classes.

 

Cost: $10 Drop-in; $8 w/ a Lotus Class Card

 

Ecstatic Breathwork
w/ Marilynn Freeman

Two Sundays in December, 8 & 22
4:00 - 5:15 PM

Ecstatic Breathwork is a strong, three-part, rhythmic breath through the mouth. You actively breathe for 20-30 minutes, followed by approximately six minutes of deep, meditative relaxation. This is done lying on the floor, accompanied by music.

This Breathwork is a powerful way to release tensions held in the body, mind or psyche. It is one of the quickest ways to reset your nervous system and Vagus Nerve.

Cost: $10 Drop-in, or $8 w/ a Lotus Class Card.

On this, the shortest day of the year, we gather to welcome the return of light.  Circles of sound and movement form around the world every Equinox and Solstice to 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!”
