WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

In Tune with Ourselves, In Tune with the Earth, Through Yoga and Art

Karen Gibbons ATR-BC, LCAT, PYT

In this workshop, our intention will be to use the grounding qualities of the earth to enhance our self-awareness.  As we cultivate self-awareness without judgment, compassion blossoms.  We will practice yoga with a focus on grounding and heart opening, followed by a meditation and concluded with art-making using natural materials. (All levels welcome)

 Getting Unstuck – Freeing the Authentic Voice Within

Djuna Passman, M.S., R-DMT, E-RYT 200 

Gentle movement and breath work will provide grounding and the opportunity to physically and energetically open to new possibilities. Writing prompts designed to identify ways we prevent ourselves from reaching our fullest potential, as well as our strengths, will guide us toward greater freedom of expression, creatively and within relationships.

Meditation. Mantra. Clay. A Journey to Self-alchemy

Ella Dufrene, MPS

This workshop will integrate the use of the following modalities: meditation, mantra and the sensory use of clay to develop a deeper understanding and alchemy/healing for the self.

Meditation rebalances the brain and fires energy into new neuron pathways; mantra allows people to connect through sound vibration; and clay, which IS the earth, works directly with our sensory system to heal trauma, anxiety, stress.  Through these processes, participants will be

lead through experiences and develop clay sculptures to dialogue with, and deepen their connection to their body. Light yoga will also be used in opening.

Earth Dances: Moving the Self from Within

Lisa Clementi, MS, R-DMT

Discovering the self through movement and nature, this dance/movement workshop will incorporate movement explorations through guided meditation, improvisation, music, and experientials to build upon a collaborative dance. Culminating with a witness/mover experience, the dance will be performed honoring the self in connection to the earth and its movement, rhythm, and energy.
