Upcoming Workshop -Our Body, sacred garment- Self Breast Massage Nov. 18th

Martha Graham, the famous modern dancer coined the phrase,”The body is a sacred garment.” In our rushed every day lives, this thought is the furthest thing in our minds. Yet in every major religion and spiritual practice seeing the body as a vessel for Divine connection is universal.

The first 2 hour workshop on Sat. Nov.18th from 10-12noon is on Self-Breast Massage. We women rarely think or touch our breasts unless we are in shower, putting on a bra, or checking ourselves for lumps. I’d like to teach you how to stretch tight pectoral muscles as well as working the entire breast to bring better blood flow and help your lymph flush out toxins. Self breastwork can also loosen back and neck muscles.

The touch is gentle and the intention is to become mindful through our bodies we are one in Spirit. Mediation and breath work will be involved so bring a yoga mat. You can bring a bag lunch and stay and walk the labyrinth and the grounds afterward. I hope you can make it.

Meditation leads to finding the root of subconscious issues

Depression is something all of us experience in our lives. Yet some of us are plagued by it. Clinical depression is one of the most common maladies of our time. I share this personal anecdote in hopes it will encourage others to employ meditation in their daily life.

A few days ago I woke up feeling a sense of depression, yet not knowing its root cause.Things have been going relatively well in my life, but the sense of unease hung over me like a dark wordless cloud. I sat in meditation for a half hour and when I came out of it, I was still feeling depressed. I questioned myself, why hadn’t the depression lifted and my higher self answered, “it’s because you haven’t been out to the garden in nine days and you haven’t picked up your musical instruments.” We had been visiting my elderly parents during that time and subconsciously I had also buried feelings of sorrow about the reality my parents were getting closer to their demise.

This thought did not come out of the meditation but after the meditation, opening up a deeper part of my brain to get to the root of why I was feeling out of sorts and depressed. It was almost as if my higher self went into the swirl and extracted the information I needed to act on. Having the cause in hand, I empowered myself with a plan by making music, visiting my garden and calling my folks. I know many of you will say, those issues are nothing compared to mine. But meditation can help you as well!

On Saturday Feb. 27th I will be offering a workshop at the Yurt Garden on Personalizing your Meditation. The class will include basic breath work, creative visualization, energy work, toning, Tai Chi, mandala work and classic sitting meditation.

It will begin at 10:00am and run until 3:00pm. Lunch is included. The labyrinth will be available to walk The cost is $50.00. Message me at the number above, use the Contact page, facebook me, or just call today!
Registration is limited to 10 people. Please contact me and reserve your space.

Namaste, Lynn
