The Universal Language

Four consecutive Fridays, Beginning January 3 @ 7:00 – 9:00pm with Tara Pobuda

This class is a 4-part series taking you on a journey of learning the Universal Language of Numbers, Colors, Symbols, Elements, and the importance of Soul Guidance. Tarot is a divine tool that guides you through a greater understanding of self and therefore opens a horizon of experience. The basis of understanding the art of the cards dates back hundreds of years and it reveals truth in connection to the Higher Self and those around you. This class will help you understand the everyday signs of recognition to enhance your Life.  Each and every class is different. The Four-Part Course of study is every Friday from 7-9pm.  Cost: $15

Each course starts out with free writing and putting our minds into the healthy state of NOW. After the warm-up, there will be weekly assignments and free styled discussions, interpretations, and meditative work-outs to bring the best of ourselves on a piece of paper. This class will help you channel your Universal Mind and teach you different perspectives of growth within your greater being. Paper and pens will be provided but would prefer you to bring the materials for writing due to your personal connection with the tools themselves. All ages and All People are welcome. Cost: $5

Deeksha Blessing and Meditation   

Thursday, January 9 & 23 @ 6:00 – 7:30pm with Jane Hale

Jane Hale traveled to India in 2006 to receive training and initiation from Sri Amma-Bhagavan, the founders of the Oneness Blessing, also known as “Deeksha”. Deeksha is a transmission of divine energy which begins a process of neuro-biological shifts within the brain. When linear information in the parietal lobes is reduced, the recipient can feel a sense of boundless awareness and connection. Each transmission helps recipients learn to embody the great silence and peace, linking each of us to a more universal experience. Jane has been facilitating Deeksha in various settings, including the Higher Self Bookstore, for more than 13 years. In addition, she offers classes and sessions in T’aiji Gong, Movement Therapy and other healing arts.

Cost: $15 Minimum Donation


Warrior Heart Practice Workshop

Saturday, January 11 @ 1:00 – 3:00pm with Sandy Brown

The Warrior Heart Practice is a powerful new method to reconnect with our sense of authenticity and inner-knowing and realign with our true nature.

Walking through each of the four chambers—Feeling, Story, Truth, and Intent—readers learn to take stock of their current emotional and mental state and reframe their situation in a new healing light. Cost: $20, $10 with the purchase of the book Warrior Heart Practice

Sacred Belly Dance for Beginners & Sacred Hula

Sunday, January 12 Sacred Belly Dancing 11:15am – 12:15pm with Amira Hamzar 

As far back as the matriarchal Sumerian times, women danced, feminine deities were worshiped, and the Goddess was the creatrix and nurturer.  Throughout history, what became known as Belly Dance was passed down and has expressed these qualities.  These movements harmonized with the Moon phases and connected the dancers to the celestial rhythms.  Women today can utilize these same dance movements to help balance their energies.  All ages, sizes and shapes welcome.  No dance experience necessary.  Cost: Sacred Belly Dancing $13, Sacred Hula $7

Women’s Retreat

Friday, March 20- Sunday, March 22



Can a RETREAT change the direction your life is heading?

If you feel mired in the past or in past emotions… 

If your relationships, your job, your thoughts “don’t fit” any more… 

If you need a BIG BOOST of inspiration…

If you really need to balance your time and personal energy…

If you’re seeking an illuminated path to transform how you are living…

then THIS is the retreat for you! 

Why?  Well, besides this being an opportunity to experience a feminine coming together filled with the perfect blend of restorative balance and empowering speakers, multiple energetic happenings make this an excellent time to change your destiny and to connect with your own deep, innate wisdom.


Our retreat happens immediately following the first equinox of the new decade!  Equinox is celebrated and honored as a time of balancing light and darkness, birth and death; it reminds us of the equalizing energies in and around our own personal lives. Knowing that this equinox happens in the spring when daylight starts to increase, we will be celebrating that the earth is preparing to “tip over” to more daylight.  Therefore, the spring equinox represents new light and life, new beginnings, seeds of change, and new pathways.  Now is the time to focus and move forward, in fresh, positive ways.  Are you ready?!?!?  Jump in to YOUR personal Self Equinox experience!

Spring Equinox — Self Equinox


Topics our guest presenters will be speaking on include Learning as You Go; Moving Beyond Grief; Creating Personal Balance; Visioning to Manifest Your Hopes, Goals, and Ambitions; Discovering Healthier Nutritional Lifestyles; and more.

Restorative practices include Gentle Yoga; Crystal Singing Bowl Experience; Morning Tai Chi; Energy and Wellness Sessions; Natural Outdoor Setting; and more. 


Total cost for the weekend will be $322 per person, including all meals and lodging, speakers and supplies.  RSVP and deposit of $100 (non-refundable) due by January 20, 2020 – full payments may be made at any time.  Final balance payments due March 11, 2020.  Please note – each of the other retreats have filled quickly so please sign up early.
