Deeksha Blessing and Meditation   

Thursday, October 10 & 24 @ 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

Sacred Belly Dance for Beginners

Sunday, October 13 @ 11:00am – 12:00pm with Amira Hamzar 

As far back as the matriarchal Sumerian times, women danced, feminine deities were worshiped, and the Goddess was seen as 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: $13

All while learning a solid foundation of technique on the frame drum. This class is designed to shake loose the stuck parts of ourselves and truly connect to the rhythms of the earth and ourselves. We will move through our past to renew and rebirth ourselves into our new life.
