Vision Board Workshop SAT JAN 13th, 1-230 or 3-430pm

December 27, 2017
Vision Board Workshops! Let’s use art to mindfully set intentions for 2018!  A Vision Board is as much about the product as it is the process. Choosing what to include and exclude on your board helps to clarify what is important to you, and set your goals.  Creating a Vision Board in a group setting is great for feeling a sense of accountability to these goals.  Shannon Loos of Unfolding Potentials will guide you to connect to your intuition, and create a visual reminder of your goals with symbols using pre-cut collage images, drawings, and color choices.  Shannon will provide art materials to add to your board. **Please bring your own base for the Vision Board.**  A foam core poster board is recommended, but feel free to be get creative thinking about how your Vision Board will be displayed, etc. This workshop takes place on Saturday January 13th, 1-230pm or 3-430pm. The fee for each workshop is $20. Additional Options:  Bring some of your own images ( pre cut images from magazines, flyers, photos, etc) to use on your board or to share with the community collection. Contact Shannon by January 9th to have her provide a foam core poster board for your vision board. This costs an additional $5 Attend both workshops for $30 ( note 30 minute break in between) Visit  for more information and to sign up OR email Shannon at * Please indicate which time you would like to attend ( 1 or 3 pm) or if you’d like to attend both.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy 8 Week Course starts WED FEB 7th

December 13, 2017
Course begins WED FEB 7th-WED MAR 28, 7-9pm PLUS day long retreat on SAT MAR 24th, 930-4pm MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) is based on the MBSR program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn. The MBCT program is designed specifically for people who suffer from depressed mood and was created to help prevent relapse into depression. In this program, you’ll learn how to use different skills: cognitive therapy can teach you how to be aware of distortions in thinking, and mindfulness can teach you how to ground into the present moment and see your thought and feelings as simply mental events in the mind that come and go. Rather than trying to change or eliminate difficult mental experiences, MBCT teaches you how to develop a whole different understanding of and relationship to your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. When you know how to change your relationship to negative thoughts or unpleasant experiences, they become much easier to handle, reducing the negative cycle that too often leads to relapse. You may find you are less stressed, less reactive, and are even enjoying life more! The MBCT course consists of eight weekly 2 hour classes, and a half-day meditation retreat. Sessions consist generally of guided mindfulness meditation, in-class exercises, gentle yoga, and discussion. There are also practices and homework assignments that participants complete during the days between sessions. The structure of MBCT requires strong commitment to doing the homework, but the rewards can be lasting. The latest research proves that MBCT can be as effective as prescription drugs in preventing relapse, and more effective in enhancing your quality of life. The study also showed MBCT to help people with a history of depression stay well in the longer term. If you are interested please contact us at the above teacher contact link to schedule a brief initial phone consultation with the teachers to see if this group is a good fit for you. Please Note: There will be a half-daylong retreat on TBD.  Recommended reading: We will have optional readings each week in “The Mindful Way through Depression” by Williams, Teasdale, Segal, Kabat-Zinn and “Full Catastrophe Living” by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Women’s Circle•Moon Ritual•Sound Medicine In this all Women New Moon Healing ceremony, we will gather as our ancestors did to honor our guides, ourselves, mother nature and Great Spirit. The New Moon is a time to plant the seeds we want to grow. The intentions we set on the new moon will grow and expand with the waxing energy as it builds into a full moon and illuminates what we need to bring our attention to or release. By combining our intentions with sound healing, we create the space within ourselves to bring these seeds to fruition. We will gather in sacred space, share our intentions and infuse them in a ritual item to take home and work with. Afterwards, Brook will take us on a healing sound journey with crystal bowls, drum, rattle, Indian Shruti and ancient medicine songs to open our hearts to all the infinite possibilities and release stuck and stagnant energy that is no longer serving us. Space is limited- RSVP required $35 Exchange About me- I am a Shamanic Reiki Healer that has been on this path treating others since 2011.
