New Moon Meditation with Dawn Behm and Sara Tharrington Monday, 4/1 11:30-12:30 pm $20 purchase here
The New Moon is a beautiful time to start fresh. Pausing to allow space to tune in and set intentions for the next moon cycle, we give ourselves the gift of awakening out of our habitual patterns. We prepare and create with intention, leading to more of what we desire in our lives.
Join us for this precious time. You will experience 30 minutes of pranayama and moon salutations to prepare our bodies and minds for guided meditation. As we set our intentions, we relax into savasana to be guided through a 30 minute new moon group meditation. With movement and meditation, music and stones, candles and essential oils, we will invite the new cycle to begin with intention and beauty together.
Dawn is passionate at bringing hope and empowerment to others desiring to thrive and influence the world for good. Living her first 36 years with chronic illness in her body and mind, she found hope and help through yoga, meditation, holistic wellness, nutrition and essential oils.

MAGICAL HANDPAN JOURNEY: FRIDAY, APRIL 26th 7-8:30 pm $20 Early Bird, $25 at Door purchase here
You are invited to experience an intimate evening with Saffire as he magically reveals the wonders of the HandPans; the RAV Drum and the Symphonic Steel. Saffire says, “I have been playing these beautiful instruments for over 7 years. Their depth and range never cease to amaze me. Their very sound is alchemical in nature, like metal becoming water, becoming air, which has a very interesting effect on the listener, relaxing and trance like while being activating at the same time. I’m so excited to share this sonic journey with you. During the performance those present will have the opportunity to explore some rhythmic structures and join our voices together in song/chant.
A World Rhythm Drumming and Dance influenced by rhythms in the African, South American, Afro Cuban and Middle Eastern Traditions. All ages (teen through adult) and experience levels are welcome.
All you need is a desire to learn, play, dance and be in rhythmic community! The tools we will utilize are, but not limited to Djun Djuns, Djembes, Congas, Shakers, and Vocal Rhythm work. It is an incredible amount of fun and the
community created is quite amazing! Class will begin with a warm up and will conclude with a cool down to the beautiful sounds of the RAV Drum.
NIA: SATURDAY, APRIL 27th 5- 6:15 pm $15 Early Bird, $20 at Door purchase here
Nia is a practice of self-healing and self expression through conscious navigation of body, mind, emotion and spirit. It is composed of equal parts Dance Arts, Martial Arts and Healing Arts. Cardiovascular for the body and cleansing for the soul, Nia invites us to move as a whole system, an integrated unit that chooses the sensation of pleasure and the state of joy in the body as our baseline. We expand our awareness, our movement vocabulary and our means of expression from there. Nia is Movement as Medicine.
