How Well Do You Listen?
Our brains are so busy! Work, cell phones, computers, and TV keep them humming all day long. When you are conversing with someone, are you really listening or is your mind wandering off? Maybe you’re already thinking of a response before someone finishes talking. How about listening to yourself? Can you hear your inner voice or are your thoughts and emotions dominating your every moment? In this workshop we will bring awareness to this issue and practice some ways to better listen to others by connecting to ourselves.

Who Am I? What do I really want for this life? Are these questions you have asked yourself from time to time? Have you found the answer? Re-Discovering Your True Self is the first step in experiencing the real you, underneath the layers of emotions and preconceptions, thoughts and memories that we have mistaken for who we really are. Through lecture, exercise and meditation, we will begin our journey inside, to rediscover our true nature.
Managing Stress in the modern world
Stress has become an epidemic in our culture. Experiencing constant stress has been proven to cause physical and emotional illness as well as a more negative worldview. In this workshop, we will explore where your stress is coming from, how it is affecting you as well as others, how to become aware of the stress you hold, and how to release it. Through lecture and relaxation techniques centered on meditation and movement, you can begin to release your stress and shift your focus inward to a more peaceful and joyous place. Leave with tools to continue your practice at home. This course is for everyone.

The Path To Peace & Happiness
Many of us live one dimensionally, thinking that the outside world is the only road in this life.. This workshop will investigate three worlds. The outside world, the inside world and the spiritual world. Through light exercises, we will begin to become more aware of our physical bodies. We will then explore the inner world, our energy body, how it works and how it can connect us to a deeper place. In our last class we will see what blocks us from feeling truly happy and peaceful by combining these physical and energy practices to cultivate a spiritual awareness, a path to see the same world with a different view.
