Life has many challenges that create stress.   Stress is harmful and leads to conditions such as heart disease,  high blood pressure, and more.  Reducing your stress can lower your disease risk.   This series of classes on Tuesday nights are designed to help you reduce your stress and feel better.   You’ll love this great variety of interesting  and calming classes!

 

Here is the remaining August schedule & our upcoming Sept schedule  for our Stress-Buster series:

  • IET/Angel Healing with Chris: August 15th and September 19th: Discover the healing angels and how they can bring you inner peace!  During these fabulous classes, Chris will cover 1 or 2 of the 9 healing angels. Learn the special healing gifts that each angel brings.  Chris will teach you how to call upon the healing angels with a special prayer of invitation and how to use an angelic heart link to connect with the angel’s energy. You will learn the special healing gifts that each angel brings & invite each of the healing angels to support you in your physical, emotional, mental & spiritual journey. This lovely class can bring a profound sense of peace & calm.
  • Yin and Restore with Theresa (NEW!) :Aug 22nd and 29th, Sept 26th: Yin Yoga is a more meditative approach to yoga. While most yoga classes focus on shorter held poses to stretch the muscles and heat the body (Yang Yoga), the hallmark of Yin Yoga is the slow paced, deeply held sequence of poses that are precisely timed for 3 to 5 minutes. This enables the body enough time to relax into the postures safely. Most postures are on the floor using the support of props (blankets and bolsters) or the wall, so there is no need to worry about holding a standing pose! Yin Yoga focuses on the connective tissues, tendons, fascia and ligaments with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Bolsters, blocks, blankets as well as other props will be available for your comfort during your practice. Yin yoga is a remarkable and transformative practice. We will finish class with a few meditative restorative postures that will allow complete relaxation of the body and mind. Try this class, and your body and mind will thank you.
  • Guided singing bowl meditation with Jessica: September 12th:  Jessica has a beautiful collection of brass singing bowls.  The sound healing that comes from these singing bowls is amazing, and you will feel very relaxed and de-stressed.  Jessica will also provide you with guided meditation while she is playing the singing bowls. You will be on the floor, relaxing with bolsters and pillows for this meditation, or seated in a chair –whichever you prefer.  Essential oils will be diffused to further enhance your meditation and enable you to relax.
  • Candlelight Restorative (Nancy): September 5th:   Feeling stressed?  Discover restorative yoga!  Moonflower Yoga owner, Nancy, will guide you through a series of relaxing postures on the ground which help you deeply relax.  Bolsters, blankets and pillows are used to support you.  Soft candlelight and essential oils are used. Your stress will melt away!  (Candlelight Restorative is also offered on Monday, Sept 18th).

All poses will be offered with modifications and variations so that everyone – regardless of limitations or degree of experience – can experience their highly effective benefits. The mindful linking of gentle stretching with breathing can lead the student on a personal journey inward, thereby allowing ones’ deepest presence to be felt in a powerful mind and body relationship.

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

By Katarina Bivald –  394 pages

Once you let a book into your life, the most unexpected things can happen…

Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds that Amy’s funeral has just ended. Luckily, the townspeople are happy to look after their bewildered tourist—even if they don’t understand her peculiar need for books. Marooned in a farm town that’s almost beyond repair, Sara starts a bookstore in honor of her friend’s memory.  All she wants is to share the books she loves with the citizens of Broken Wheel and to convince them that reading is one of the great joys of life. But she makes some unconventional choices that could force a lot of secrets into the open and change things for everyone in town. Reminiscent of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, this is a warm, witty book about friendship, stories, and love.

Next meeting date:   FRIDAY, August 18th, 7 PM – 8:30 PM

Fee: $10 to cover costs.

Reiki Level One training with the Rev. Constance Barley

Date: Saturday, September 23rd, 1 PM – 5 PM – BOOK EARLY!  Our previous sessions sold out and space is limited.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the concept that life force energy flows through us.  If this energy is low, then we are more likely to feel ill and have higher stress levels.  If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

In this special 4-hour training session, you will learn the basics of Reiki and receive a Level One certification from Connie.  The ability to perform Reiki is passed on during an “attunement” given by Connie, a Reiki master, and allows the student to tap into life force energy to improve one’s health.  At the end of this training, you will be able to do basic Reiki on yourself and others. Leading medical institutions are now offering Reiki as an alternative therapy.

There will be a food break around midway through the training with delicious homemade snacks.

Introductory Price: $125 per person for this 4-hour certification training

GALLERY READING WITH PSYCHIC MEDIUM, JOE PERRETA:

New fall dates will be announced shortly

sky for joes gallery readingJoe Perreta is a psychic medium who specializes in communicating with those who have crossed over.  Joe’s affinity with spirit started at a very young age, giving him a unique connection to and an intrinsic understanding of the spirit world. Joe embraced his gifts early in life to find that he is what is called a natural born medium. Since then, he has brought unique and specific healing messages to countless men and women all over Long Island and NYC.

In a gallery reading, you will be witnessing the amazing way that spirit can use a medium to heal those here in the physical world. Everyone can get messages, but that all depends on what spirit decides they need to say and to who!  Expect you will hear exactly what you need to at that moment in time. Joseph asks that you come with an open heart and mind with the expectation that you will witness the beautiful healing power of spirit communication.

Joe’s previous sessions all sold out quickly.  Reserve your spot ASAP as space is very limited to this event.

This is a unique gallery reading!  We keep these to a small size with a limited number of participants.  Unlike big settings where only a few people have an opportunity to interact with the presenter, in our gallery readings with Joe, each person has an opportunity to speak with Joe.  This is NOT a guarantee that a certain crossed-over loved one will enter the room.  However, from the past sessions, Joe has been able to deliver messages to the participants who gathered.
