Dance your Heart, Body and Soul AWAKE!

Share the joy of free movement and connect with yourself in an open- hearted way. The music is created to move you through a rhythm-wave, inviting you to dive as deeply as you wish into your own inner landscape. Moving releases tight muscles and tensions stored in the body that leaves you freed up to be more present.

     *  2nd Sundays, 5:30-7pm, $10–$20 ~ , November 12 will be the next one!                       

 

ACTIVE HOPE

In these changing and uncertain times, it is important that we develop a community of people whom we can trust that will sustain us through the uncertainty.   We must open to our deepest feelings, express gratitude for the beauty of this life, and nourish our creativity and courage to take part in the Great Turning – that moment when humanity chooses to turn toward a life-sustaining society, ending the destruction of the past millennium.

Coleen, Katey and Deb (all trained and skilled facilitators in their own right) have joined their talents to lead  an intimate experience with the Work That Reconnects, a dynamic, interactive body of work developed by Joanna Macy, inspired by scholarship in systems theory, deep ecology, and Buddhism as well as 50+ years of her international activism.  This work re-invigorates our energy for action and resiliency. It allows us to step into our whole selves and express our deepest longings.  

     * Sunday, Nov. 19, 9:30-4pm, $35-$100 lunch included
