"may your power never become a shell
wherein your heart would silently atrophy.
may you welcome your own vulnerability
as the ground where healing and truth join."
~ john o'donohue
What does power mean to you? What images arise when you consider it? Where does it live in your body? What do you do with it?
Power is the energy behind the lighting of buildings, the birth of a child, how we relate, what we create, our emotions, our thoughts, our movements, our breath. It is in fact the very essence of life itself. Sometimes the easiest way to access our ideas about power is when we recognize its misuse or when we feel disempowered. We long to understand this somewhat elusive and mystical force yet we believe that this path of self-discovery can only be done alone through struggle. As we lean into the journey we allow the possibility that our tender places have the most power and that deep connection with ourselves, each other, and the entirety of our life experience is how we thrive.
Using the potent catalysts of music, movement, breath, and creative expression, we will explore the many aspects of power that exist in each of us, and all of the ways that we can harness and express it in a way that is balanced, nourishing, and in alignment with our higher truth. Our focus will be on the fifth chakra, the energetic center in the body that resides at the throat and invites us to know the truth of who we are, and align our personal power of will with the will of the divine.
BHAVANA IN MOTION
with Liz Tucker
$40 in advance, $45 at door
Saturday, March 29, 2:30p-5:30p ENROLL NOW
The sanskrit word bhavana means “to call into existence through deep connection to feeling and experience”.
Bhavana in motion™: the practice is a tapestry of three principal elements ~ tantra yoga, conscious dance, and creative expression, interwoven with shamanic ritual, meditation, breath, and the whisperings of deep silence. Each experience is unique, anchoring into a theme and sequence of elements that change shape each time we practice. We learn to trust our bodies’ organic wisdom and feel our way into what is possible when the rhythms of our bodies and minds are in alignment with our hearts’ desire, the clarity of truth, and the earth that nourishes us. We then explore how we can take this practice into life. Some basic yoga experience is helpful; no dance or meditation experience is required.
Saturday, March 29, 5:45-7p, free

“A few minutes of Feldenkrais can give you the flexibility & postural benefits of hours of stretching exercises.”— Anne Rosenthal, PhD
Are you recovering from injury? Dealing with chronic pain? Would you like to move with greater ease? Would you simply like to know your physical self better?
If you answered “Yes” to at least one of these questions, you’ll benefit from Awareness Through Movement (ATM®), the active version of The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education.
Each lesson begins with simple movements, which gradually increase in complexity, all organized around a function such as hip opening, movement of the shoulder girdle, or organizing head and neck.
“Wow, that was incredible. It’s hard to believe little movements can do so much, but obviously they do.”—Janet A., after her first ATM class
PLEASE NOTE: Mats and props are provided, but you are encouraged to bring your own mat specifically designed for the Feldenkrais practice, which may be purchased online at WellMats.
Instructor Angela Alston, GCFP, MFA, began taking Awareness Through Movement® in 1996. She trained in The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education in New York, Houston, and Chicago and was certified to teach ATM® in 2008. Angel also offers Functional Integration® private sessions. Angela has studied a variety of movement forms, including yoga and dance, and she is an award-winning maker of dance films. She has an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin and a BA in philosophy and biology from Swarthmore College.

Cultures around the world have used singing as a sacred path to connect with our creative Source, heal ourselves, and bond as a family and community. The practice of shamanic style singing helps you break through the ego’s judgment and honor your authentic voice, intuition, and self-expression. This class will explore Native American and shamanic singing, chanting, and toning. Will offer practical tips to use your voice for stress reduction, healing, shifting your perception, inspiration, meditation, and empowerment. Includes group singing, discussion, and tips to find your soul song and power song.
Debbie's class was powerful and fun! As a healer myself, I know when deep healing is happening even on a cellular level. Debbie's loving, easy approach embraces you and really nourishes you through the process of discovering the power of your voice and its connection to the Divine within you. –Marie Georgopulos
The biggest thing I gained was a deep awareness of how my voice matters...how it has the power to create joy, passion, and love in this very minute...which flows out causing a ripple effect all around me...even further out than I will ever realize. I am having so much fun being heard these days! -Kim Worthington
