Frequency Specific Microcurrent Workshop with Linda Steele

Bio-resonance refers to the frequencies given off by living cells. We know that bio-organisms produce and conduct electricity as part of the essential function of life. A biological frequency is a measurement of electrical energy that travels in wavelengths through the fluid medium of a living entity. Even though the use of frequencies has emerged recently in medicine, the technology has been around since the beginning of the 20th century. How can frequency specific microcurrents help treat issues like shingles, Fibromyalgia, RSD, vertigo, pain, PTSD…

Gluteal Amnesia with Kim Squire & Mary Kirkendoll

WORKSHOP
Gluteal Amnesia with Kim Squire & Mary Kirkendoll

The gluteal muscles help power us through so many activities, from walking and carrying heavy things, to performing both cardio and strength exercises. When your glutes lose strength, other muscle groups in your back and lower body are forced to take on the extra work to compensate, setting you up for issues such as low back, hip, or knee pain, and can also lead to muscle imbalances throughout your body. Gluteal amnesia itself shouldn't cause you any pain, but over time, if left untreated, weak glutes can contribute to other strains and pains. Join us to explore various ways to wake up your glutes!

YOGA MOVIE NIGHT!

We will have a FREE yoga movie night at 7pm. Popcorn will be provided! Please bring blankets and wear comfortable clothes.  

The ancient Icelandic word for intuition is “innsæi,” but in Iceland it has multiple meanings. It can mean “the sea within” which is the borderless nature of our inner world, a constantly moving world of vision, feelings and imagination beyond words. It can mean “to see within” which means to know yourself, and to know yourself well enough to be able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. And it can mean “to see from the inside out” which is to have a strong inner compass to navigate your way in our ever-changing world.

In the inspiring and thought-provoking InnSæi – the Power of Intuition, Hrund Gunnsteinsdottir and Kristín Ólafsdóttir go on a soul-searching, global journey to uncover the art of connecting within in today’s world of distraction, disconnection and stress. They meet with world-renowned scientists like Marti Spiegelman, an expert in neuroscience and indigenous consciousness who believes that we are only using a fraction of our capacity as human beings, with devastating consequences for the planet; artists like Marina Abramovic, the “grandmother of performance art” who teaches that “in order to create something new human beings need to go into the unknown”; and spiritual leaders like the captivating Malidoma Patrice Somé, a West African elder and author who reasons that “intuition binds us together. Without it we lose our sense of purpose and belonging.”  They also meet an extraordinary group of British schoolchildren who are learning how to better cope in today’s world by unlocking the power of nature and mindfulness.

Illustrated with gorgeous animation and stunning imagery, InnSæi is a film like no other, and one that offers radical insights into how we think and sense the world today.

Workshop

Working Toward Optimal Health with Christy Kennedy

We all have access to a sea of information on diet and lifestyle. The latest science, specific recommendations, glowing testimonials—so many good approaches. It's also overwhelming, often contradictory, and ever-changing. Answers for some are not right for others. Even what you did in the past may not work any more. So now what? 

While we do share common issues, we are all individuals, each with our own set of circumstances, histories, and habits that, combined with the passage of time, have steered us along the path of good physical and mental wellness, or somewhere further off in the underbrush. So the goal is to aim ourselves back in the right direction.

This workshop is an overview of how an individualized approach:

1) deepens awareness of how you are/where you are right now
2) sets sights on what you would like to change/improve
3) shapes the plan to get there

We will talk health histories (whoever wishes to), touch on the emerging world of individualized medicine, and discuss the benefits and methods of intermittent fasting.

WORKSHOP:  The Divine Feminine as a Portal to Self-Realization

WORKSHOP: The Divine Feminine as a Portal to Self-Realization

Workshop with Cynthia Ray
(visiting teacher from Portland, Oregon)

click here to register

We were placed in this world and live in this world to understand and become Self-Realized God Beings. If this is true, then what is Self? What is Self-Realization? How do we come to know God in whom we live and move and have our being?

We can know God in its many aspects; God as Father, God as Mother, God as Self. One approach to come to know our own Divine Self and Being is through the Divine Feminine, and through the feminine aspects of our own personality. Studies in Alchemy, Tarot, and Esoteric Mysteries show us that every person has both feminine and masculine (yin/yang/ positive/negative/solar/lunar) energies and aspects within themselves. Understanding and tapping into those aspects to perform the inner alchemy/spiritual work that is necessary to transform our baser selves into spiritual gold is our quest. 

The Divine Mother, or subjective, trans-liminal consciousness speaks to us when we bypass the conscious, logical mind and approach her through irrational/non-rational modes such as:

-Dreams
-Art
-Journaling, poetry
-Sound and Music
-Movement and Dance
-Meditation and Prayer

Cynthia Ray (Rt. Rev. Rosaria) is a priest, artist, mystic and teacher trained and initiated in the gnostic tradition. She teaches tarot as a guide to the spiritual path, meditation, the mysteries of esoteric Christianity, exploring the Divine Feminine, and more. She works with groups and individuals to facilitate individual and planetary healing, transformation and growth. 

$25, Call or text Cynthia to reserve a space (541) 343-5197
