Grief Medicine: Yoga and Sound Healing for Transformation | Apr 20 | 3-5:30 PM | $36-$45

Come join Amy Hyun Swart and Amber Field for an afternoon of energizing and nourishing yoga + movement, sound healing, and expressive arts to support you in acknowledging, accepting, and attending to whatever has brought your heart to the place of being broken. Whether your grief is surviving the loss of a loved one, a relationship breakup, or something else that brings you to a state of bereavement, this workshop was created just for you. Movement, breathing techniques, creative expression tools, and sound exercises will help you learn to manage the heavy emotions of loss. Together we will dip into a sound bath while doing gentle and restorative yoga to ease the grieving heart and explore creative ways to contact, express and move. Join us in a circle of non-judgement and kindness as we honor loss in its many shapes and forms. By coming together in community, we can make space for ourselves and each other to process and transform our individual grief, together. Please bring a journal, something to write with, and an object of significance for the grief altar. Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in.

Money, Archetypes & You! with Megan Lathrop | April 24 | 7-9:30PM | $20

Which voices are you listening to as you do or don’t make your financial decisions….? WHO is in the driver’s seat of your financial life...?

Why haven’t we received a user’s manual around how to relate, feel, think about money to be our healthiest, happiest most harmonious version of ourselves? Instead, we have just taken everything in when we were little ones, unconsciously, and then learned to not talk about it. NO wonder we have so many challenges…and significant untapped potential
WELL, THE CHANCE IS YOURS NOW…

Communication in the Workplace, a Daylong Workshop | April 29 | 10AM-5PM | $160-$200
