This Week - preregistration recommended* or required** for starred workshops
SHAMANIC JOURNEY CIRCLE with Comma Williams
Sunday, December 8, 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 to journey! Join Comma Williams along this monthly crossing into non-ordinary reality to gain insight and clarity about your path. $20 or class card

BEING STILL: Cultivating Insight for Wise Action*
A Half-Day Meditation Retreat with Chris Crotty
Saturday, December 14, 1-4:30pm ~ Stillness does not mean inaction. Rather the stability of mind cultivated through meditation is a foundation for discernment. In this half-day retreat we will practice insight meditation through periods of sitting and walking meditation, first to reduce reactivity, then to investigate our own mind. With a clear mind we can see our own habits, patterns, and tendencies, and this allows insight to mature naturally. As our capacity to "see clearly" develops, wisdom grows and is evidenced in our wise response to all of life. Beginners and ongoing students welcome and encouraged to attend. Please preregister - information & registration here

Release Into RESTORATIVE YOGA* with Karen Barbarisi & Keith Herndon
Saturday, December 14, 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. $35 or class card x 2 at the door; $28 if registered by 12/11 via email with Karen or Keith

New Monthly Class! YOGA For Continuing Students with Liz Owen
Saturday, December 14, 4:30-6pm ~This alignment-based practice will renew, refresh, and restart your body and mind at the end of your busy week. Each class includes centering your mind and warming up your body, a mix of vinyasa and sustained postures, pranayama, and deep relaxation - just what one needs to approach a new week with clarity and vitality! Open to students with 1+ year experience. $20 or class card at the door

Live Music! KIRTAN with Shubalananda & Friends
Saturday, December 14, 7:30pm ~ Created by ancient Indian rishis from Vedic mantras, kirtan is a yoga of sound - an evening of beautiful music and heartfelt call-and-response singing. No previous experience is necessary to experience its emotional depth, yet powerful as it is, kirtan is effortless and incredibly enjoyable. Free ~ please make a donation!

DHARMA TALK & MEDITATION with Lama Tsering Ngodup
Sunday, December 15, 10am-12pm ~ You’re invited to receive Buddhist teachings (dharma), practice meditation, and experience the relevance and benefits of Buddhist philosophy and meditation in daily life. All are welcome to this freely offered biweekly event ~ donations gratefully accepted

CONTINUUM: Moving Inquiry* with Megan Bathory-Peeler
Sunday, December 15, 1:30-4:30pm ~ Continuum is an awareness practice sourced by movement and sound that facilitates explorations into embodiment, health, creativity and universal connections. Unfolding as moving mindfulness, Continuum consistently brings one into the present moment through simple awareness of audible breath and wave motion. By being present to what is in the moment, one can make more informed choices for action that are more symbiotic, less effortful, and also maintain a focus on connection. For more info & registration, please email Megan
