Forgotten Half: Feminine as a part of the Whole with Aki Baker

Sat, May 18 | 11:00 AM | $10

In the world where Masculine force dominates our day to day life, we are seeing the destruction from the unbalanced expression on humanity. Many teachers have been talking about the time of transition – from the Masculine to the Feminine, which is evident in the rise of feminine qualities seen in many facets. This talk will explore and meditate on how this relates to our lives, and this ultimately is one of the most critical ways for us to live harmoniously on this planet.

Group Breath-work Session with Ambrose Gage

July 20| 11:00 AM | $10

Rebirthing breath work uses a conscious connected breathing technique to release tension and stored emotions in body, which makes space for new thoughts, actions, and possibilities in your life. Clearing the emotional past brings you into the present, into the body, restores innocence, and increases vitality.

The breath work process is a powerful and gentle method of bringing in more life and releasing constrained and withheld energy in the body — allowing yourself to experience your expansiveness profoundly.
