A Yin-Ki Experience
Saturday February 16, 7:00-8:30pm
With Sara Brooke Wolf and Kari Ann Levine
This is a gentle, floor-based yin yoga class which allows for deep relaxation and the release of mental, emotional, and physical stress. Postures will be held longer to allow opening and strengthening of the deeper connective tissues of the body-the joints, ligaments, and deep fascial networks. Contained in these tissues is where Prana, life force energy, flows. Through this practice, energetic blockages and stagnant energy can be removed, balanced and transformed thus allowing the vital energy to flow freely throughout the meridians and energy system of the body.
During class, you will receive Reiki (universal, healing energy) to support this process. A variety of sound healing instruments as well as mantra singing will be played throughout class to awaken and deepen the healing experience.

Sacred Sound Meditation
Saturday March 9, 7:15-8:30pm
Sound has been used around the world for healing and accessing expanded states of consciousness for centuries. The instruments used are usually overtone producing, meaning they emit many frequencies at once. With our focused attention, these unpredictable, often unfamiliar, entrancing sounds lull us into trancelike meditative awareness. In this state, the body-mind is able to enter deep states of relaxation and restoration, release past traumas, create positive cognitive change, experience and learn how to create a calm and peaceful inner landscape, attune and align with the Higher-Self, and countless other life-enhancing beneﬁts.
In order for the fruits of Sound Meditation to be absorbed most eﬀectively, it requires active and mindful listening by the participants. As such, every sound meditation begins with a brief introduction about what sound is, why it is so powerful, and how to listen meditatively. Participants are then guided through a meditative visualization to allow their conscious, thinking-mind to settle into a deeper, more present, more embodied sense of being. From here, Kari takes practitioners on a deeply inward journey, using meditation-inducing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, harmonium, drum, vocal toning, and sanskrit mantra. At the end of each session, Kari takes care to gently lift practitioners into waking consciousness, concluding with a practice, meditation, or aﬃrmation to help integrate the sound experience, so that practitioners don’t only leave feeling restored and revitalized, but are given the tools to create this experience in their lives as well.

Singing the Soul: Embodying the Spirit
A Devotional Chanting Experience
Saturday March 30, 1:00-3:30pm
Within the human instrument of the body, the voice is the means through which we express our deepest truths. When this powerful tool is harnessed and directed for spiritual purposes, it becomes a means to transcend ordinary consciousness and directly communicate with the Divine. Through this process, we sing our spirits into being, becoming more fully embodied in our true essence as beings of Light and Sound.
In this workshop, participants will experience singing Sanskrit Mantra as a method for self actualization and spiritual exploration. We will discuss the history and science of chanting as a spiritual technology to reach higher states of awareness, allowing access to personal healing and spiritual insight. Participants will tap into their unique singing voice, and be given tools to allow the voice to blossom. Several Sanskrit Mantras will be explored from a variety of perspectives, including their translations, archetypal energies, pronunciation, and the healing power of their vibration through chant. Participants will be given practical tools and practices to bring the healing power of chant into their everyday life.
