Talking Circle
Monday, February 3 @ 7:00 – 8:30pm with Jerry Mitchell
Talking Circles are most commonly used in the Native Cultures and ours will be modeled after that. The Circle will be facilitated, and we will use the talking stick technique.  The most common type of circle is a simple sharing circle, where people just share whatever they have to say. There is no particular purpose or theme, and many fascinating side-trips often happen. The sharing circle is also an excellent introduction to ceremonies and other tools.   Another common circle is the healing circle.  By healing it is meant that healing occurs through talking.  This is generally guided by the conductor and will be convened to deal with issues that are bothering people. These issues August be specific, or the circle August be called to simply allow everyone to get any problems “off their chests”.  Our circle will be both a sharing circle and a healing circle.  
Free Event.

Mindful Way Through Pain 
Saturday, February 15 @ 10:00am – 1:00pm with Tere Lynch
Saturday, February 29 @ 10:00am – 1:00pm
Saturday, March 14 @ @ 10:00am – 1:00pm
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on within or around us. Furthermore, mindfulness begins and ends in the body, which starts with being aware of our body, including the uncomfortable parts. That very act can be calming and soothing, since our body has internal rhythms that help it relax and heal if we give it a chance. East meets West during these powerful practices, but we don’t have to take mindfulness on faith. Both science and experience demonstrate its positive benefits for our health, happiness, work, and relationships and simply by practicing, the changes can be long lasting and even permanent. During these workshops, you will learn about the latest science of mindfulness, pain, and the brain, how to become aware of your body’s messages, and practice powerful meditations to help you become more aware of and increase your empathetic compassion with yourself and others.  Cost: $35 or $100 for all three (includes CD for practice at home).

Finally, an exercise will be given for those planning to take Reiki Master training. Prerequisite: Reiki 1 & 2.  You must take ART if you want to take Reiki Master training. COST: $250
