Harnessing The Power of the Chakras (Margie)
The chakras are like the book or the “song” of your life. An imprint of every important or emotionally significant event you have ever experienced is recorded in your chakras. What does this mean? It means if you could do just ONE THNG energetically, and you wanted the biggest impact, work with your chakras. They are one of the most powerful and influential energy systems in the body. As a graduate of Donna Eden, I bring her unique perspective on clearing and balancing chakras to this session. You will leave this session with chakra techniques to support your life.
Living and Dreaming from the Heart in the Age of Aquarius (Alison)
We are in the midst of a pivotal time in Earth’s history, foretold by the Ancients, when humanity would be able to create a more just and humanitarian world for all. In this session you will learn how to shift from 3rd to 5th dimensional consciousness through the power and intelligence of your heart. Living and dreaming from the heart is about becoming more open and connected to all life, more creative and
intuitive, which accelerates our personal and collective evolution. Together we will practice activating and strengthening the field of our hearts and accessing its native intelligence and connection to Source. This knowledge is contagious, so it’s guaranteed to transform our lives and the world!
Navigating the Flow of Our Emotions (Margie)
We will learn gentle movements and breathing practices to help us manage the ebb and flow of our emotions. Through observation of the cyclic nature of the seasons and the five elements of water, wood, fire, earth, and metal the ancient Chinese crafted THE FIVE RHYTHMS theory. They were seeking to create order out of chaos while bringing harmony and
balance to all areas of life. This model used the symbol of the star to teach techniques to restore energetic emotional imbalances. Working with THE FIVE RHYTHMS will be fun learning and will light the way for more ease and compassion as we navigate the flow of our emotions.
The Wisdom of the Enneagram (Lucy)
There are nine distinct personality types, nine different perspectives on life and nine ways of being in the world. We all have pieces of the whole nine but are dominant in a few. These are the patterns that shape our lives, explaining why we do the things we do, why we think the way we think. What number(s) are you? Join me in this workshop and learn more of why you do the things you do. Understanding our patterns, can change our lives.
Therapy is A Walk in the Woods (Alison)
Join Alison, a certified Forest Therapy Guide, for a walk along the Exploits River. With no specific destination in mind, we will wander, explore and immerse ourselves in nature for 2-l/2 hours, allowing our senses to guide us. Forest Therapy is a mindful, healing and connective practice inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku” which translates into “forest bathing”. Spending time in nature strengthens our immune system, reduces stress, and makes us more creative, mindful and happier. A win-win! This time in nature is for anyone who wants to de-stress, slow down, relax and rejuvenate body,mind and spirit. We will be outside no matter the weather, so come prepared with warm and
water-resistant clothing so you can enjoy the outdoors in comfort.
Intro to Chakradance (Sharon)
Movement is the language of deep transformation. Consider this your divine invitation to use a fusion of Jungian psychology, dance, chakra infused resonant music, guided meditation, and mandala art as an elixir for your Body, Mind and Soul. Chakradance gently unravels buried feelings, unresolved memories, unconscious inherited beliefs, all of which we hold in our bodies and in our energy centers. This blocked energy becomes the tension in our bodies, the illnesses we develop and the negative patterns we keep repeating in our lives. Balancing your chakras will change your life.
Raise your Vibration with Crystals and Sound (Joanne)
Learn and experience how to use crystals and Sound Therapy (drumming, tuning forks, singing bowls, and the voice) to clear, balance, awaken and
strengthen your Life Force energy. Experience a powerful Drum Journey to connect with guides and your inner knowing.
Everything Meditative (Sharon)
Let’s Stop, pause, and embrace everything Meditative…We will learn about the benefits of meditation, the energies of the chakras and a breathing technique to keep in your wellness toolkit. There will be lots of time for discussion, Q & A, and a very relaxing closing guided meditation.
