New material is introduced every week, yet presented as a stand-alone class. You will get the most out of this series by attending regularly, but you’ll never feel lost if you can only attend when your schedule allows.

Integrative Yoga for Healing & Alignment

Lucid Self
Aug 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

In a lucid dream you are aware that you are dreaming. The same is true in life.

To be aware is to not be consumed by the events around you. “Thinking” in this clear state means not getting lost in thoughts. Instead, there is awareness that thinking is happening. You are lucid.

When we are not aware, consciousness easily gets carried away by passing phenomena: the senses, images in the mind, emotions, and objects in the world. All of these things draw us in like a magnet.

Join us for these weekly classes where we explore what consciousness is, and what it is not. Greater freedom and stability of mind come with lucid awareness!

August substitute teacher – Jeff Gima

Gratitude Meditation
Aug 23 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

Gratitude is much more than a word or gesture of thanks. It is a powerful mindset that can transform our relationships with everything and everyone around us.

Gratitude as a meditation technique is the element that unites the practices of non-harm with generosity. When we refrain from harm we cultivate kindness; when we practice generosity we give and receive freely. Gratitude is not possible without kindness (toward ourselves and others) nor without generosity (understanding the role of receiving).

These classes combine mantra and visualization techniques to help develop a baseline comfort with feeling and expressing gratitude. In time, they show us how to live with greater compassion, appreciation and joy.
