Energy Medicine Workshop

We are happy to announce an Energy Medicine workshop with Suzanne Scannell!

Sunday, June 7th, 1 -2:30 p.m.

indexEnergy Medicine awakens energies that bring resilience, joy, and enthusiasm to your life – and greater vitality to your body, mind, and spirit! Balancing your energies balances your body’s chemistry, regulates your hormones, helps you feel think better and feel better. It has been called the self-care and development path of the future, but it empowers you NOW to adapt to the challenges of the 21st century and to thrive within them.

Energy Medicine utilizes techniques from time-honored traditions such as acupuncture, yoga, kinesiology, and qi gong. Flow, balance, and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained within an energy system by tapping, massaging, connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin; by tracing on or above the skin along specific energy pathways..

During a session, I support your body’s natural energy flow by crossing your energies from left brain to right brain and following energetic patterns with a variety of light acupressure holds. I do a series of protocols to clear energy blockages and make space within your body, your auric field and your chakras. These protocols and acupressure points calm your nervous system allowing restoration to your cells, organs and tissues.

Workshop

Participants will:
* Learn and leave with the tools to practice a daily energy routine to balance and maintain your own energetic pathways.
* Trace your own meridians.
* Practice simple neurovascular holds to calm the entire nervous system

 Preregistration Required

Fee $50.00

Strong Beings

Altar_Fire

Thursday, April 30, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Led by Michael

Shamanism and Narrative Therapy share the understanding that intrusive and disruptive feelings, addictions, many forms of violence, and other experiences that disrupt our lives may be understood to be power external entities or forces. These entities are perceived to be aware and calculating in their desire to maintain their influence in our lives. In this introductory workshop we will explore some of the ways these Strong Beings shape our lives, and some of the suggestions shamans and Narrative Therapists make for taking our lives back from them.

Led by Jennie

In this workshop, we begin with a walk into Nature, then learn the art of touch drawing, a form of printmaking on tissue paper. Touch drawings are powerful in their simplicity, yet allow us to hold sacred our inner and outer landscapes. By creating a series of touch drawings we will work deeper and deeper into the process, exploring, together, our inner and outer worlds.  No artistic experience is necessary. All materials included.
Fee: $75.00. Preregistration Required.

Led by Jennie Kristel and Herb Propper

In the midst of our busy daily life, we don’t often find time to nourish our spiritual life or practice. This workshop offers opportunities to examine how we can do that with more consistency and depth. Using the group role-playing methods of psychodrama, art  and Playback Theatre, we will examine ways to increase our motivation and reduce obstacles to creating a larger space for the spiritual in our life. Additional methods will include short meditations from the traditions of Zen mindfulness and Tibetan Buddhist (Vajrayana) enlightened deity practice.
