Intro to Reiki Workshop
Do you want to decrease stress and tension and increase harmony and balance in your life? Would you like an opportunity to feel deep relaxation and overall wellbeing? Experience the subtle energy known as Reiki! Reiki is an ancient hands on healing art in which the practitioner channels the energy from the universe and directs it, through her hands by gently placing them on or above the recipient. The recipient takes in as much energy as needed to balance the mind body and spirit. When enough energy is received and the body is in balance, the body can then begin to heal itself. In this introductory class you will learn the basic history and principles of Reiki and be able to experience the flow of this life force energy first hand. 

Intro to Meditation Workshop
Do you need to de-stress? Do you want to experience a renewal of energy and have an opportunity to make better choices and reconnect with your inner being? Learn to meditate! Meditation is a technology that benefits mind, body and soul and is the anti-dote to stress. During meditation our minds become quiet, allowing our bodies to gain the deep rest necessary to release stress and fatigue. In this introductory class, you will learn the basic principles of meditation and practice 3 silent meditations designed to bring you inward to silence and spirit. 

Primordial Sound Meditation
Primordial Sound Meditation is a silent meditation which uses a mantra (sound) designed to take your mind inward, away from activity, towards the silence of spirit. Primordial Sounds are sounds from nature, like the sound of the wind or the ocean. Every person has their own Primordial Sound which is determined by the date, time and place of their birth. It is the sound the earth was vibrating at the time of your birth. This sound becomes your mantra. When we silently repeat Primordial Sounds as part of the mantra, they help to take our awareness away from the frenzy of daily activity of the mind to the stillness of spirit. The effect soothes our entire physiology - mind, body and soul.

Primordial Sound Meditation is easily learned in 4 short sessions over a period of two days. In this class you will learn the basic principles of Primordial Sound Meditation, the use of mantras, and the purpose of meditation. Each participant receives their personal mantra and instruction on how to use it. After instruction you will meditate for 30 minutes. There is plenty of time to ask questions and to share experiences. The class also includes a specially prepared video featuring Deepak Chopra discussing the higher states of consciousness.

You will receive a Guidebook for New Meditators, and a CD of Deepak Chopra leading the meditation.  
The group fee is $150 for adults, with discounts for seniors, full time students, children and the military.  
The fee for a private class is $225.

Explore the Human Energy Field: THE CHAKRAS
In this class you will explore the human energy system through the seven major chakras. The chakras are the energy centers that regulate the flow of chi, ki, prana… or energy to the body. There are 7 major chakras that run up and down the spine from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Chakra is a Sanskrit work that means spinning wheel. The chakras are wheels of energy. They are much like vortexes or funnel shaped centers of energy. You will learn how the chakras affect you mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. We will also discuss what affects the chakras, how they can become blocked and how you can help to clear, balance, energize and nourish the chakras. You will then experience a meditation designed to open and clear the chakras to allow for the free flow of energy.

This class is taught in the Hatha style of Yoga and is designed to improve balance, flexibility and strength, increase vitality, reduce stress and develop an awareness of the mind-body connection. We achieve this through movement, breathing and relaxation. Each class will incorporate the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, a program developed by Deepak Chopra and the Chopra Center. Some yoga experience is suggested.
