Amir Baigmoradi

Amir Baigmoradi grew up spending his childhood camping and developing a strong affinity for nature and the outdoors. He was introduced to landscape photography from the Arizona Highways magazine of which his grandmother had a subscription too. After cutting out hundreds of images of beautiful landscape images over the years as a teenager, he decided he’d spend his life traveling and seeking out the wonder of the natural world.

As a self taught photographer, Amir really began developing his photography skills when he left east coast and ventured out to live in California. It was on the West Coast that he accomplished his goal of living among some of the most amazingly beautiful landscapes and National Parks in the world. His strong desire for adventure and exploration led him to refine his backpacking skills and begin spending as much of his time out on the trails, many times for days on end, in a quest to capture light and landscapes while experimenting and refining his technique. He sites his first backpacking trip along the High Sierra Trail in Sequoia National Park as among the most inspiring experiences of his life with the solitude and grandeur transformative.

He currently resides in Long Beach with his fiancee Jenny. Working in the entertainment industry as a Video Engineer and Filmmaker, his mind remains free dreaming of his next adventure and the chance to document the beauty he finds himself surrounded by.

He dreams of hiking the Pacific Crest trail and inspiring in others a strong sense of wilderness advocacy in such times when our National Parks are increasingly at risk and facing an uncertain future.

Andrew Pisula of Vagabond Carving

After discovering bone carving while living in New Zealand in 2004, I returned home with a feeling of having direction in which I could channel my creativity. I made a work space for myself and never looked back. 10 years later, the time seemed right to start showing my work and exposing my passion to the world and I’ve been showing ever since.

I’m someone who believes in the magic of making things with your own hands. I wake up each day thinking of how and what I get to create. In my creative life, I’ve constantly grown and expanded the materials and techniques I want to work with. At this point, my passion and eye are drawn to large scale, wall hanging, wooden sculptures. My primary focus centers around the beauty and elegance of geometry and repetition.

Hypno-Yoga Nidra FRI FEB 2nd, 730-830pm

January 21, 2018
Hypno-Yoga Nidra is based on an ancient form of guided meditation, that uses visualization, imagery, and affirmations that promote a state of deep physical relaxation and the turning inward of awareness. In Hypno-Yoga Nidra, the body is fully relaxed and the mind is highly focused – just 1 hour of Hypno-Yoga Nidra is reported to be the equivalent of 4 hours of conventional sleep. Hypno-Yoga Nidra promotes full body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness…a kind of deep, trance- like state or “yogic sleep”. Hypno-Yoga Nidra is one of the most beneficial practices for self-healing. In Hypno-Yoga Nidra, the participant is led on a conscious journey of awareness inside their body and their mind and led to a deeper state of conscious awareness using relaxation techniques, guided imagery, visualization, and affirmations. Unlike traditional yoga, Hypno-Yoga Nidra is exercise-free. During your session, you’ll remain lying down on a yoga mat. It is recommended that you wear comfortable, loose clothing, and bring a pillow(s), a yoga mat, and a throw or blanket. From there, all you have to do is listen to the voice of of the Hypno-Yoga Nidra practitioner as she guides you away from the noise of everyday life and brings you to a state of deep inner consciousness that exists between sleep and wakefulness. The Benefits Of Hypno-Yoga Nidra: Hypno-Yoga Nidra is a natural, holistic complimentary therapy for stress, tension, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, PTSD, hypertension, fibromyalgia, pain relief and more. Key benefits include: * Eases Tension in the Mind & Body * Improves & Restores Healthy Sleep Patterns * Provides Mental Clarity * Increases Immune Function & Self Healing *Improves Mood & Overall Well-Being * Can Create New, Positive Thinking Patterns * Can Reduce Self-Limiting Beliefs To Achieve Goals * Can Create New Positive Inner Awareness Things to bring with you to be comfortable on your Hypno-Yoga Nidra Journey: Yoga mat, pillow(s) for head or knee support, blanket or throw to keep warm, and small notebook and pen/pencil to record your experience. Guest-Host Info: Andrea Torregrossa is a certified RYS 200 yoga teacher with an MA in Art Education. Her practice as a yoga instructor and visual arts teacher uses guided imagery and visualization towards deep self healing, and inspired the desire in her to assist others in improving the quality of their lives.

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.

Since the program, my symptoms are much better and I experience more energy, creativity and contentment.” -Maribel Fonseca “It’s been a transformative and life-changing three months. What I got from you was the courage to face my emotions. I’m recognizing that it’s safe and healing to acknowledge and process my emotions. This has helped me to be more aware of and honoring of my womb as I transition through menopause. Now, I feel privileged to be a woman, and I’m inspired to continue this work of loving my womb, my pelvis. I recognize the beauty and importance of this place both for my body and spirit. It is another heart center.” — Robin Lucca “Something shifted in me when we did the worship the goddess within exercise. I felt the privilege of being born female. I felt my sacredness.
