Release Into RESTORATIVE YOGA* with Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon
Saturday, August 11, 2-4pm ~ Join Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon for an experience of Restorative Yoga - a therapeutic system that uses the comfortable support of cushions & blankets to nurture the body in various gentle, long-held resting postures. Restorative Yoga allows the nervous system to quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing even chronic patterns of tension. The afternoon will unfold with a brief sequence of flowing Kripalu yoga to warm up and prepare the body, then plunge into profound spheres of tranquility and ease. The class may also feature gentle chanting and Reiki to sooth and relax. $35 or class card x 2 + $5 at the door; $28 if registered by August 18 via email with Karen or Keith

SHAMANIC JOURNEY CIRCLE with Comma Williams
Sunday, August 12, 7-9pm ~ Shamanic journeying is a tool that has been traditionally used by indigenous shamans for the healing of individuals and communities. Most commonly, shamans use drums and rattles to shift their consciousness into non-ordinary reality, a trance-like state, to communicate with their helping guides and spirits. We know now that anyone can learn - join Comma Williams for this monthly journey circle where we will travel into non-ordinary reality and ask for information to help us get clarity about our path for this coming year. $15 or class card
