Unfolding the Heart: The Journey of Forgiveness
Oct 18 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

This is a 4-part series: October 18th & 25th, November 1st & 15th.

Is there anything between you and being at home in yourself? For most of us, there is, a lot of the time. Come explore what gets in the way of a free and open heart and what we can do about it—using the wisdom of the Enneagram, mindfulness, and your own loving presence.

In this 4-part series, we’ll dive deep into the false type assumptions, stories, and beliefs that get in the way of forgiving ourselves and others. With practices to engage all three centers, we’ll inquire into, come to understand, and meet with compassion the ways that we block our hearts. And we’ll courageously try on new ways of being, feeling, and thinking to forge new neural pathways and create a life worth living.

Tea & Poetry
Mar 18 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

 

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.

* Real-food and low added sugar, too!

Introduction to the Instincts
Nov 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The instincts of the Enneagram teachings are the name we give to a group of three flavors of instinctual life-force energies. These are the same energies we share with our animal ancestors.

The instincts supply the fuel for the way our type manifests in the world, so learning about and working with them is a way to understand how your Enneagram type is driven around in the world, how you go on autopilot and lose presence.

In this workshop, we will explore the three instincts, inquire as to how they show up in our lives, and come up with ways to live them in a more balanced manner that promotes growth, transformation, and deeper presence.

FREE Full Voice Workshop

Full Voice: The Art & Practice

of Vocal Presence

 

How can you embody your full presence–through your voice?

How can you speak so people will listen?

What gifts reside deep inside you that are yearning for expression?

How would your life be different if you were “unsilenced?” If your voice were alive, expressive, powerful, and clear?

 

No matter what you do for a living, you spend a good part of every day in conversation–at work, at home, and in your community. As important as our voices are, few of us know how to embody them to their full potential. Many of us feel self-conscious about how we sound, but don’t know how to make authentic, lasting change in our voices.

Learning to consciously tap the full range of expression available to you in your voice also opens up a fuller range in your bodysoul… and makes it much more likely that your message will reach the minds and hearts of your listeners. Working with your own full voice makes you a more skillful listener as well.

Full Voice is the work of Barbara McAfee–I am in her Full Voice Coach Training Program and this is part of my practicum!

 

In this highly interactive, practical, and fun workshop, together, we will:

  • Explore our vocal strengths, habits, assumptions, and challenges,
  • Increase vocal awareness, flexibility, and expression using the Five Elements Framework,
  • Identify ways to use voice to project authority, express passion, extend compassion, and convey vision in everyday conversations,
  • Learn how to use our voices to awaken our gifts,
  • And have fun, playing and making sound together!

 

Logistics:

Friday, November 2nd, from 7:00-8:30
St. Paul Yoga Center, Corner Studio
FREE! Let me know you’re coming, or just show up!

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.
