A FORGIVENESS CEREMONY :: Let Go and Be Light
Thursday April 13th, 2016 // 7:30-9pm

Have you been trying to release old pain but not sure how?  Are there resentments and wounds from the past that you’ve been unable to heal, or unsure even where to begin? We will be coming together to let go of this pain whether it is the fierce fire of something recent, or the dull ache of ancient karmic wounds. By working with the mystical and elemental forces of the universe we will walk through the sacred practice of forgiveness. Through ceremony, meditation, Reiki, and gentle movement, we will let go and heal, release and rise up, let go and be light.

YOGA NIDRA 
Friday April 15th, 2016 // 7-8:45pm

Overwhelmed?  In need of healing? Give yourself permission to take a break and drop in to some stillness. Yoga Nidra is a wonderful way to relax, AND it is a way to tap into the transformative powers of the subconscious and unconscious mind. Radical healing can take place as you travel deeper than hypnosis. We will relax the body with some gentle movement and then drop into a deep, guided meditation and each session will also be enhanced with Reiki Healing.

“Yoga Nidra is one of the most effective and least explored techniques for unleashing the power of your deep unconscious…Yoga Nidra has the ability to alter your unconscious programming.  On the most basic level, Yoga Nidra relaxes, rejuvenates and renews the physical body. It also empowers you to eliminate unconscious obstructions and energetic blocks that prevent you from living your life to the fullest. Through regular practice, Yoga Nidra enables you to effortlessly realize your intentions and achieve an integrated state in which your body moves towards self-healing.” Yogi Amrit Desai

We will travel slowly and introspectively through a cycle of asanas designed to open the hips, legs and heart. In the depth of winter we reflect and draw inward, we connect to the ancient and mysterious cycles that guide us, in order to activate the energies that continue to nourish us through the dark nights. Chandra Namaskar channels the yin-like energies of the moon…the nourishing, intuitive, creative, and mysterious. The practice will include an extended guided meditation and Reiki Healing.

HEART HEALING MINI-RETREAT: 4 Steps to Soulful Love

w/ Alicia Fronczek

SATURDAY, February 12th 2016

1-5:30 p.m.

Are you ready to dig deep and transform your relationships with others and yourself?

Love is simple… and oh, so complicated! In its greatest moments it fills us with all we desire and we are complete, joyful, and unstoppable.  When Love goes wrong we suffer, hearts literally break and the scars can remain for years.  In this Mini-Retreat we will dig deep, heal, and find again our beating, radiant hearts!  Throughout the afternoon we will explore gentle flowing and restorative yoga postures, breathwork, and Reiki healing. We will work with Chakra energies so that we can embrace and welcome the multi-faceted energy of Love!  Whether you are single and searching or coupled and dedicated, this event will help you move through obstacles, learn more about Self in relation to Other, and align you with deep, Soulful Love.

Healing Wounds: You can’t build a home on a shaky foundation and you can’t hold onto Love if your heart is still shot full of holes from the stress of loss, resentment, anger, anxiety, worry, or mistrust. We will speak to old wounds in the Heart and Sacral Chakras, grieve for the past, and release pain that has been holding us back.

Self Love: Learning to embrace and love our own Selves is the key to creating a deep and lasting Love. Find and develop that radiant gem at the core of your Solar Plexus Chakra and let its light shine like a beacon, so that you can draw to you those who also can see your beauty and show them what you’re worth.

Soulmate Love: Learn to understand the intricacies of a Soulmate relationship and how to attract or enhance a quality Soulmate Love experience. Magnify the radiant gem at the core of your Heart and Throat Chakras and magnetize yourself to Love.

Divine Love: If you feel disconnected from the Universe and its blessings, this will likely reflect in relationships that feel one-sided, unappreciative, and distant. The Heart Chakra is intimately connected to the Crown and the Root Chakras, so we will balance all three and activate the Loving Trifecta allowing you to truly receive a shower of Love in all its forms.
