You receive gentle hands-on guidance and verbal instruction to help you prevent movement patterns that wear you down by the end of the day or cause pain. There are no exercises, machines or special clothing. Instead, you apply the principles to your normal activities. Through the technique, you can learn how to reduce habits of excess tension as you gain a renewed feeling of ease and lightness to improve the way you look and feel every day of your life.

Together we will look at how you think and move in your daily life. In this two hour, one day workshop you will learn the basics of the Alexander Technique and begin the journey to developing healthier movement patterns, relieving pain and improving balance, posture and overall energy.

Sound Bath

Come relax and unwind with the healing vibrations of quartz crystal singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks, drums and chimes.

Everything in the universe is composed of energy. As such, everything has a natural frequency vibration. Energy, light, atoms, molecules, and even our planet are vibrating at specific frequencies and thus producing “sound”. This includes every living cell in our bodies as well as the energy centers known as Chakras. Just like a musical instrument that emits sound, our chakras and our cells can either be in tune or out of tune.

 

Every cell and chakra center is naturally tuned to maintain well being and health. But physical, mental and environmental factors can interfere and cause these vibrations to go out of tune and into a state of imbalance. Crystal Singing Bowls are tuned to the body’s Chakra centers so, much like a tuning fork causes resonance to adjacent objects, when played, they help tune chakra centers to resonate in their proper, natural state. In doing so, they allow for the free flow of energy throughout the body, mind and spirit.

HeArt Centered Meditation

"There is a place between voice and presence
where information flows.
In disciplined silence it opens..."

Rumi

13th century Sufi poet

Finding Stillness as the Source of all creative potential…This is Meditation. When the spiritual world unfolds within and we connect to deeper guidance and understanding, there is a profound revelation that leads to experiencing truly remarkable lives, full of positive potential and creativity, free from the burdens of negativity and conflict.

 

Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now) calls this meditative reality an experience of “spaciousness…the 4th dimensional reality.” He refers to the experience as “pure joy.” Joy and happiness are inherent aspects of Life...the feeling that we are one with the ever present power of love and compassion. A feeling and a space we can create in every moment. Without judgement, we release thoughts that bind us to pain and conflict. This is the real benefit of meditation: the realization that letting go allows us the “space” to grow the seeds of our future. Psychologist Carl Jung writes “...the more weight we attach to unconscious processes, the more we detach ourselves from the world of desires…the nearer we draw to the state of unconsciousness with its qualities of oneness, indefiniteness and timelessness. This is truly a liberation of the self…”

Lia introduces you to meditation practice with a focus on how the breath, sacred mantra, and quiet posture of the body, all work together to create stillness of the mind. She understands that meditation has to work for those of us living busy lives. Even Zen walking (kinhin) is practiced in a way that can become part of a daily meditation. Creating joy and happiness is not an elusive prospect. It requires determination to change the way we perceive our place in the world and a willingness to open to the power of the Heart, where the true flow of Life energy is centered. With the foundational tools of this HeArt Centered practice, you become your own guide to knowing peace of mind, giving Life an opportunity to respond with harmony and balance…and unlimited potential for joy becomes a choice, not a wish.

Lia’s approach to meditation has been formed over 45 years of devout Buddhist practice in Japanese, Zen and Tibetan traditions. She holds a Masters in Social Work and has provided years of guidance and therapy to her clients. She is also the author of “Wandering: Lessons from the Heron and the Haul Road.” (2016)
