Kirtan in Brownsville!

We will be starting a monthly potluck gathering of friends for food, Kirtan, Meditation, chanting, reading, etc… Others are invited to open discussion as well- this is a community centered event. As per request, we are now attempting early afternoon events! I myself and not an “evening person” and folks with children often find it difficult to be out in the evening. We hope you can attend!

Kirtan event is always free, but we do leave out an optional donation bowl to help pay for food and for gas for the traveling percussionists!

Yoga Nidra, Thursday, December 14, 6-7:15 with Rick Lamont

Angie and Josh will be away on Thursday December 14 for an event at the Compass School, so our regular yoga and live music class will not happen. However, we have a very special treat for you that night!

Join Rick Lamont for an evening of Yoga Nidra!

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra ® is a form of meditation and transformation whose roots are grounded in the wide and deep field of yogic tradition found in yogic texts, philosophy and psychology. Not only is this practice relaxing and energizing; it has the power to transform us at deep levels to become more of who we are and to live life from an awareness of our true Self with clarity, purpose and confidence. It is one of the deepest of all meditations, going beyond meditation, as our awareness is led through each of the koshas to our true Self.
Nidra means sleep. Yoga means yoke, or union, wholeness and one-pointed awareness. Yoga Nidra, yogic, or dynamic, sleep, refers to awakening in every level of our being through a specific guided meditation practice.

An inviting practice, Yoga Nidra can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. All that is required is to lie down and listen. It is a systematic method of complete relaxation and peace, not only for the physical body, but also for the deeper emotional and mental systems, penetrating to the roots of stress and allowing the release of subconscious tensions and tendencies that inhibit us from living fully. Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra brings us to a place of deep calm, quiet and clarity.

Contact Angie for more information. Pricing TBA.

 

 

Solstice Celebrations December 2017

Join Charleigh Robillard of Medicine Wheel Four Directions

for an inspirational and nourishing Solstice practice during an extended Monday night class time.

Monday, December 18, 5:30-7:00 PM

$12 drop in

From Charleigh: 

“The Winter Solstice is a high Holy Day in many parts of our world. This ancient day of reverence has been practiced for centuries: a day of praising as the light returns to our days.  The mid-winter Sun pauses in the sky for about 3 days around December 21st, and then slowly the wheel of light swings back as the hours of light lengthen once again.
We will celebrate the Sun’s return with a candle lighting ceremony, a brief meditation on Winter giving, some Surya & Chandra Namaskar, and a deep relaxation to honor the fallow season. Join me in giving the Sun his due gratitude, & restoring peace to your soul in these mid-winter celebrations.”
