Sahaja Yoga Meditation

Free

with Jerry Mayfield

Calendar Apr 24, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

Sahaja Yoga is a unique method of meditation developed by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) and is based on an experience called Self Realization (kundalini awakening) that can occur within each human being. Through this process, an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes balanced and integrated mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. In this class we will learn chakra clearing techniques using natural elements and affirmations that will deepen the meditation experience. Sahaja Yoga does not require physical exercise and no previous experience is necessary.

with Elissa Nauman

Calendar Apr 24, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Using Essential Oils for Pets

You use essential oils on yourself, so why not on your pets? Essential oils offer a safe, gentle, and natural way to treat a variety of health issues, and can even be used along with medications in order to help possible side effects from the drugs. In this class, you will learn which oils are recommended for your furry friend, and which ones you should avoid, and what you can use them for. We will also explore how to apply them to your pet, and safety precautions to take while treating them. Please note that this class will mostly pertain to dogs since cats are more sensitive to the potency and scent of essential oils, however, we will review which oils are toxic to cats.
