September Newsletter-Fall into Flow

September Newsletter-Fall into Flow
Fall is here! As we begin to fall back into our routines of work and school, our habits and schedules become like a familiar dance. Like water we flow from one task to the next. Labor Day weekend is a good time to take that ocean side trip for one last hoorah before the winds chill and the leaves turn. The ocean provides an opportunity to refresh, revive, cleanse and clear ourselves as we attune to the changes in our lives.

Just like the ocean’s waves continually wash upon the shore so does the opportunities of life; each one more magnificent than the previous but just as important as the one prior. The opportunities will come one after the other offering us a chance to partake in evolving, learning and growing. This month we will look at the seat of water as we explore our Sacral Chakra.

The main focus of our classes will be hips, but as water flows so will we. Movements will be focused on fluidity as well as opening up our hips. We will be moving in graceful deliberate ways to help us connect with this chakra. As we open our hips we open ourselves to the pleasures that we so deserve. Emotions rule this chakra so as we move, we can rid ourselves of emotions that no longer serves us. Emotions are something that we feel; they do not define who we are.

Come celebrate a fall season as we harvest our hips!

“Hip Hip hooray, I find joy in everyday!”~Louise Hays

Namaste’

August Newsletter – Sacred Sound

It is believed by many that as creation began, the divine, all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound “OM”. When taken letter by letter, A-U-M represents the divine energy (Shakti) united in its three elementary aspects: Bhrahma Shakti (creation), Vishnu Shakti (preservation) and Shiva Shakti (liberation, and/or destruction).

In everyday life we use words to create, preserve, to liberate or to destroy. Our words carry weight and a vibration that stretches out further than we are aware of. Some are careful in how they choose to word things as they express themselves and others willingly spew forth their own personal truths as if they were in fact laws for everyone to abide. And what a beautiful thing that we have laws in this country protecting our rights to freely express ourselves in what ever way we feel that best serves us.

So whether you practice mindfulness in your speech or are just now learning that it is okay for you to make noise, this month we will explore letting our voices be heard through Aum or Om. Our focus will be core and throat chakra-Vissudha. Practicing building and retaining energy in our core and then releasing it audibly. Come and practice your Satya – Truth through sound and making noise for all to hear!

The last weekend in July I had the pleasure of completing my 2ND Degree Reiki Certification. It was a beautiful experience shared by a small group. Many of us had profound energy and psychic experiences during the class that was facilitated by Reiki Master -Melanie Harrell. Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, which has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands on healing as a form of alternative medicine and is sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professional medical bodies. Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring universal energy in the form of qi through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.
