The word Aum is considered to be the sacred syllable of creation-the symbol of the divine in all. Chanting Aum, the vibration permeates every cell of your body. A profoundly simple and powerful healing radiates through you, from you and out into the world. This ultimate ultrasound can clear your mind, relax your body, open your heart and connect you to the mystery and wonder of the universe.

We will chant Aum fifty minutes, sit in sweet silence, then share our hearts and voices in sacred song.  
All are welcome; no experience is necessary.

Haiku is an elegant form of Japanese poetry that allows for getting to the heart of the matter in just seventeen syllables. Dahlia will teach a fun and simple approach to haiku and to watercolor collage that requires no artistic "talent" or experience, only the urge to create. Combining these art forms results in a revealing expression of yourself.

Breathing~ Movement~ Meditation

Developed in ancient China, the fluid, repetitive motions and deep breathing of Qigong help to improve overall health, prevent dis-ease, and strengthen the body and mind. The rhythmic movement stimulates the acupuncture organ meridians thereby bringing the immune, endocrine and nervous systems into balance.
People of any age, shape or size can benefit from the regular practice of this movement meditation.
Come join us.
