Charming the Channels -
Magic of the Mind

A Meditation and Pranayama Series with Patrick Harestad and special guest, Lance Harpham

Patrick Harestad and Lance HarphamThis workshop is for anyone who thinks they can't meditate and anyone who wants to deepen their mediation. We'll discover the power of pranayama (yogic breathing practices) as our gateway to the stillness of meditation. Our mind's true nature is vast like the sky. Yet we don't experience it that way as the clouds of confusion often obscure its true nature. Come join us to feel the joy associated with this luminous natural state of being.

Artist's Way/Yogi's Way
with Amy Day

6 Weeks: Feb. 25 - April 1
Wednesdays, 7 - 8:30 p.m.

Artist's way / yogi's way, with Amy DayJust as hatha yoga seeks to unify the physical and spiritual selves, this workshop is a chance to wake up, re-visit and partner with the Creative Aspects of Self as well. Re-connecting the dots of a you who has tight hamstrings, but also dreams of writing a novel as well; the you who would like to get a little more limber, but secretly dreams of painting, dancing, or singing.

Utilizing the tools from our great toolbox of Yoga, as well as the principles and practices set out in Julia Cameron’s seminal work, The Artist’s Way, we will create a deep container, wherein the Creative Self can start to bloom.
