Growing in Awareness
Every week come and enjoy learning the process of getting in touch with the "I AM." This practice is called by many names including mindfulness, ontology, the mastery of the Toltecs, meditation etc..
In class, students learn specific tools for raising consciousness, finding inner peace and taking control of their life-energy through guided meditation, daily practice and group discussions.
How can you control what happens outside if you can't first control what happens inside? This Qigong Meditation based on Dr. Yan Xin's Child Longevity routine teaches students how to work with their personal life energy (qi) to manifest wishes, achieve optimal health, and balance the body, mind, and spirit.
Students are first guided into a meditative state and then led through intense, mental visualizations that directly affect the body's qi. Because it may be practice seated, standing, or lying, it is ideal for the physically fit as well as the physically challenged.

Yoga with Cat
Experience a good workout without placing excessive stress on your back and neck. Learn techniques to protect and decompress the spine while developing core control and lengthened strength throughout the whole body.
Cat's classes focus on stretching, toning and strengthening the whole body in a gentle relaxed atmosphere. Postures may be geared specifically to improve balance or on a more subtle level to encourage a peaceful mind, a healthy body and a creative spirit. The overall calming effects produce greater focus, concentration, resilience and increased self-esteem. It's all about working with our bodies as they are in this moment, learning to listen without judging and to honor the body's internal messages.
Dances of Universal Peace
The Dances of Universal Peace is spiritual practice in motion that draws on sacred phrases, scripture, and poetry of many spiritual traditions of the earth. The Dances blend chant, live music and evocative movement into a living experience of unity, peace and integration. The taste of our true nature—as Universal Peace—opens us to the possibility of a deep spiritual revolution within each person.
