Healing through the chakras (with kate cherne)

The Chakras can be thought of as a system for self-knowledge and healing all their own. The system as we know it today was derived from the ancient Sanskrit text "Sat Chakra Nirupana." Our understanding of this energetic system has evolved in modern day, but ultimately offers a road for healing and self-realization. In this seven week series you will learn the basics of this energy system and how it influences your physical, mental and energetic heath. 

We will discuss the attributes and inner workings of each chakra one week at a time. Each session will include a short lecture on the chakra, discussion/reflection and end with a meditation practice to help integrate the energy of that chakra. Take home materials will be provided along with tools for self-reflection and self-study so that you can go deeper into the healing benefits of this system on your own.

Feel free to jump in for a full seven week self-study or join me for one or two sessions.   Pre-registration is REQUIRED to ensure enough materials.

Saturdays, Oct. 12, 19, 26, Nov. 2, 9, 16, 23 5:00-6:30pm. $150. for entire series. $35. -1 class, $60. -2 classes, $75. -3 classes. Contact: Kate at kate.cherne@gmail.com

breathwork meditation (with helen buron)

Gather to center and ground yourself, honor your emotions, and find clarity for what's true for you. Breathwork is an active meditation that uses the breath for releasing, processing, expansion, and transformation. The rhythmic pattern of the pranayama breathing with two inhales and one exhale gives our minds something to focus on so we may sink into our intuitive, feeling, and expressive bodies. In this group circle, you will be lying down in a supportive nest of other breathers and will be guided into the breath with affirmations and music by Helen Buron, an intuitive artist and energy healing practitioner.

Enjoy the benefits of both Restorative Yoga and essential oils in this unique workshop. Your nervous system will have the chance to completely relax in supported yoga postures meant to restore your system’s natural state of balance. Essential oils are a plant based medicine that offer many healing properties.  You will experience 1 essential oil with every Restorative Yoga posture.  Workshop will begin with 30 minutes of education about essential oils, followed by 1 hour of Restorative Yoga and ending with a 30 minute healing gong relaxation. 

4th Friday of the month, 7:30 - 9:30pm. $25 pre-register/$30 at the door - no one turned away due to lack of funds. Contact: Helen at helen.buron@gmail.com
