EFT Tapping Workshop: Releasing Procrastination + Fear of Shining | Aug 17 | 7-9PM | $20

Let go of stress + resistance and get back in the zone in your biz and life. Let go of the past and tap into your vision. Find out how tapping can change your life and you can shine and follow your dreams.

Tapping provides relief from chronic pain, emotional problems, disorders, addictions, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, and physical diseases. While Tapping is newly set to revolutionize the field of health and wellness, the healing concepts that it’s based upon have been in practice in Eastern medicine for over 5,000 years. Like acupuncture and acupressure, Tapping is a set of techniques which utilize the body’s energy meridian points. You can stimulate these meridian points by tapping on them with your fingertips – literally tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power.

Kirtan! Myth, Mantra, Music | Aug 20 | 6:30-8:30PM | Suggested Donation: $20

One Sunday a month we gather for a captivating and enlivening evening of chanting and storytelling. Kirtan is a form of chanting handed to us via the Bhakti Yoga tradition. Bhakti Yoga is the 'yoga of devotion' aiming for the center of the heart. It's purpose is to soften the heart, calm the mind, and build community. If you've ever spoken or sung 'OM' you have chanted.

In addition to Kirtan Robin will be sharing the myths and stories behind the chants offered. These stories are so beautiful and deeply woven with imagery meant to inspire, illuminate, and awaken the spiritual knowledge inherent in all people.

(SOLD OUT) New Moon & Solar Eclipse Circle with Dana Damara | Aug 21 | 8-10PM | $25

The first total solar eclipse touching the continental United States since 1979 touches down on the Oregon coast between Lincoln City and Newport at 10:15 a.m. PDT. Before Oregon, the shadow of the Moon (umbra) does not touch any other landmass or island.

This has not happened in almost forty years, and a lot of people are flocking to Oregon to be a part of this amazing event. However, the truth is … since you ARE part of the Moon and the Stars, you need not travel anywhere to FEEL into the energy of this phenomenal event. You can tap in right here in SF … with me.

Reiki & Restore Workshop | Sept 30 | 2-4PM | $35

In this workshop we set our course for an internal journey. One in which we seek to find parts of our "selves" both familiar and foreign; those playing in the light and those who may find solace in the shadow; our "wounded children." We'll offer space for them to be seen, heard, supported, loved, and healed.

Our time together will be spent settling in... to our bodies.. to our minds.. and to our hearts; allowing a sense of wholeness, of recognizing and living each moment to its eternal completion.
