Workshops

We offer workshops that allow us to dive deeper into a practice or topic. These run anywhere from an hour to four or five, giving the student the opportunity to practice, take notes and ask questions. Some past workshops have included: Singing Bowl healing, Hip anatomy and movement, QiGong, Non-violent Communication, Using Yoga for Trauma Recovery, Partner Yoga and more.

Mettā-Verse 4-week Workshop Oct 23-Nov 13

Mettā is a practice of inviting kindness in all of our affairs; embodying kindness in our actions, words and intentions.

Kindness is a muscle that requires training and development.

Kindness is forgiving and forgiveness demands practice.

In this workshop, we will exercise our Mettā muscles so we know what kindness feels like in our flesh and bones.

Sundays, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. EST; Oct. 23, 30, Nov 6, 13

$90 for all four sessions

We will practice it in our breath so that it is always present in our words.

We will practice kindness in our thoughts so that perhaps we will arrest an act of hostility before it is born in our minds.

We are worthy of Mettā for ourselves. The world needs us to cultivate it, to receive it and  share it – with friends and foes. Our spirit craves it for inner peace.
