Sugar Blues


Do you constantly crave sweets and are not sure why?

Are you tired of always being tired and having low energy?
Do you want to gain control over your cravings and not deprive yourself?

If you are like most people, you may have some issues with sugar. You crave sugary snacks to give you energy or satisfy that sweet tooth, but you end up more tired after. You also notice that you may not be at your ideal weight, you have poor sleep, or other health concerns like dull skin, headaches, or feeling stressed.

I’ve been there, too—
and I have a lifetime of experience
in learning how to live with sugar
so that it does not control my life!

As a Holistic Health & Wellness Coach, I support people just like you to reach their wellness goals, increase their energy, and feel great in their body. In this presentation you will:

  • Learn the top ways sugar is negatively affecting your health and happiness.
  • Gain more understanding of the causes of your sugar cravings.
  • Receive tips, samples, and recipes for foods you can enjoy without depriving yourself.
  • Explore how your lifestyle affects your cravings.

If you are ready to have more energy, fewer cravings,
and take back control of your life, you don’t want to miss this event!

The Transformational Journey of Menopause
Apr 26 @ 6:45 pm – 8:45 pm

facilitated by Katy Taylor, Holistic Life Coach & Susan Gillette, LAC

This event is full. Let me know if you’d like to join the Wait List.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you didn’t feel so overwhelmed or confused in your mid-life journey into or through menopause?

What if you could understand your body’s changes, not to mention the emotional and spiritual upheaval?

Would you like support to make sense of these changes rather than just get rid of symptoms?

Are you ready to makes some real shifts in your habits, lifestyle, attitude?

And wouldn’t you feel more at ease if you had the support of teachings for your body, heart, mind, and soul, as well as a community of like-minded women? 

Imagine if this mid-life time could be one of transformation
one of deep learning, acceptance, and wisdom.

I know how crazy-making moving toward, in, and through menopause can be. I’ve been living it, too! It shakes up business as usual. It brings up all sorts of confusing emotions and often anger. It invites us to make big changes to our lives. It can feel very overwhelming.

The truth is: There is wisdom in this natural process. We can learn how to align ourselves with the changes that are happening in our bodysouls (body-heart-mind-soul), and ride the waves into the most exciting, fulfilling, and heart-open time of our lives!

Cancelled! Maybe next time…

Do you constantly crave sweets and are not sure why?

Maybe you feel like the joy and excitement has gone out of your life?

If you are like most people, you have a difficult relationship with sugar.

In my experience, this indicates a difficult relationship with sweetness in your life. Maybe you WANT more satisfaction from your life, but can’t quite figure out what that “more” is. Maybe you feel stuck, and sugary treats (including alcohol) are the way you soothe or numb yourself.

I’ve been there, too—and I have a lifetime of experience in learning how to live with sugar AND in learning how to create more sweetness and satisfaction in my life!

As a Holistic Life Coach, I support people just like you to feel more at home in their bodies and at ease & resilient in their lives.

In this class you will:

  • Gain more understanding of the causes of your sugar cravings.
  • Explore how your lifestyle affects your cravings.

The Journey from Dualism to Wholeness: Learning to Live the Law of Three
Oct 7 @ 9:00 am – 5:30 pm

Our Western culture, our family upbringing, and even the way our brains are wired all support a dualistic perspective on life. Our lives begin with a banishment from the oneness of the womb into an either/or world of pleasure vs. pain and good vs. bad. At some primal level, we even approach our spiritual work as an attempt to transcend our humanity and become a different, more “holy” being.

What if, as Gurdjieff and the mystical paths of most faith traditions have taught, we don’t have to live constantly in this land of duality? What if we could learn how to integrate body, heart, and mind, how to trust the deeper wisdom of Third Force, restoring us to a more whole, mysterious, and inclusive perspective? From this place, we suffer less, enjoy our lives more, and live with more ease, clarity, and compassion.

Join Dave Hall and Katy Taylor for a day of heartfelt, embodied exploration of how living the Law of Three can radically transform our experience of ourselves in the world. This is a highly experiential workshop, so wear clothing you feel comfortable moving in and come ready to explore and play with your fellow seekers in the Enneagram community!

Women’s Yoga, Evening Practice–November 30th cancelled!
Nov 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

This class is cancelled Thursday, November 30th as I’ll be out of town. See you on the 7th!

This class meets weekly on Thursdays from 7:30-9:00 pm.

Relax, renew, and restore with SomaYoga, Yin Yoga, meditation, and embodiment practices specifically designed for a woman’s body, heart, mind, and soul.

Yoga, as we practice it in the US, has been developed by men for a man’s body, not a woman’s. Our curves, our different hormonal cycles, our neurological wiring, and the body tyranny we face in our culture… these all call out for a different way of practicing.

Women’s yoga, as I’ve been studying and practicing it, is about creating space for you as a woman to express and be all of yourself through your body. It is a way of inhabiting your body in an inquisitive way, of coming home to how a pose can flex, move, curve, and flow to feel good and opening and inviting in your woman’s body.

Women’s Yoga is an embodiment practice that includes all impulses of life—messy, chaotic, calm, curvy… however inhabiting your body and life from the inside expresses on the outside. Allowing your body her full expression is what creates the space to deepen your presence and feel more trust and acceptance of yourself. Read more.

I would love to practice with you!

Have you discovered the super powers of tea?

  • Not only does it refresh,
  • And slow you down,
  • And calm your spirits,
  • And gently energize you,

But tea also gives you a chance to cultivate mindful presence with whatever you are engaged with.

 

We will gather, with tea, to turn our mindful and gentle gaze to poetry.

 

Read, listen to, and savor the singular beauty of each poem, while engaging in a mindfulness process inspired by the sacred practice of lectio divina.

Share tea, a gluten- and dairy-free treat*, and poetry—all in presence-full company.

Bring poems to share related in some way to the Spring theme of awakening.

Do you take mindful time for yourself / yourSelf?

Resting deeply in your true Self is different from watching TV, zoning out with our favorite substance, or cruising around the web

Resting deeply in your true Self usually includes these attributes:

  • slowing down,
  • being quiet and/or still and listening deeply within,
  • connecting with your individual creative expression,
  • being mindfully attuned to whatever you are engaged with,

 

We especially need this during the holidays!

 

We will gather, with tea and a gf & df treat*, to rest in ourselves. (*Real food; may include butter.)


We will engage with our creativity, meditate, share, and take time to deeply fill our wells so that we can meet the world with more presence.

Women’s yoga, as I’ve been studying and practicing it, is about creating space for you as a woman to express and be all of yourself through your body. It is a way of inhabiting your body in an inquisitive way, of coming home to how a pose can flex, move, curve, and flow to feel good and opening and inviting in your woman’s body.

Women’s Yoga is an embodiment practice that includes all impulses of life—messy, chaotic, calm, curvy… however inhabiting your body and life from the inside expresses on the outside. Allowing your body her full expression is what creates the space to deepen your presence and feel more trust and acceptance of yourself. Read more.

 

I would love to practice with you!

Yoga Nidra & the Art of Deep Rest
Mar 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Yoga nidra is as sleep-based, conscious relaxation and meditation technique, also known as yogic sleep. It is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, when your body and mind are completely relaxed, but your deeper awareness is online.

After overviewing the process, you will be led in a yoga nidra meditation, a multi-step process for integration of body, heart, mind, and spirit. We will also discuss the art and energetic benefits of the deep rest yoga nidra provides, and how to cultivate more rest into your life.

Advance registration is required. Registration closes the day prior to the event.

Cancelled–Discovering Wholeness with the Enneagram
Apr 12 @ 7:00 pm – Apr 14 @ 12:30 pm

Cancelled–Watch for a New Date in 2020!

 

Taught by Dave Hall and Katy Taylor at the beautiful, rural Christine Center in Wisconsin.

What does it mean to recover our wholeness?

How is it that we find ourselves, as adults, living in a small room tucked away in a corner of the glorious mansion of ourselves?

What happened to the freedom and joy and possibility that we may remember from our early childhood?

The Enneagram can give us a focusing lens on our core personality type, helping us understand how the world and our families responded to our core needs, desires, and fears—and how we, in turn, responded to the world—creating the partial personality we inhabit now. The Enneagram can also show us, because it is itself a complete model of the human soul, the way to recover our initial wholeness.

We learn about our own core personality type, not to label ourselves or to stuff ourselves into a box, but to understand the nature of the box we already live in—and to see the way out!

Over many years of teaching the Enneagram together, we have developed our own unique way of conveying the riches of this transformational system, incorporating stories, poetry, music, imagery, discussion, and embodied experience, all as ways to help participants find their unique path back to wholeness.

Minimum of 15 students.
