CREATING A SACRED LIFE

Explore how to choose to live each day of your life. When we are still and awake we connect with our inner wisdom. When you are living in the present moment sacredness is present. Meditation gives us these tools. We will explore what inhibits us from "Letting our Light Shine".

Take time out to reconnect with yourself and to the peace within. You will experience nonjudgmental discussion, guided imagery and meditation. You will discover ways to connect with your inner wisdom and healing power. This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in managing stress and living a more sacred and meaningful life. You will learn how to provide self nourishment and well being, enhancing your body, mind and soul.

You will experience:

  • Mindfulness Meditation develops the ability to be fully present in every moment. Basic instruction of meditation will be experienced.

  • Guided Imagery - shine a light on your soul's purpose and embody your dreams through a meditation empowering your creativity

 

A LOVING KINDNESS RETREAT

Loving kindness practice is one of the most ancient forms of Buddhist practice, one that has been passed down for over 2,500 years. The development of loving kindness meditation practice is the practical way to learn to cultivate love for ourselves and others. This practice helps us to actively cultivate positive emotional states so we become more patient, kind, accepting and compassionate.

Studies on the practice of Loving kindness led to shifts in people's daily experiences of a wide range of positive emotions, including love, joy, gratitude, contentment, hope, pride, interest, amusement and awe. These shifts in positive emotions were linked to increases in a variety of personal resources, including mindful attention, self-acceptance, positive relationships with others and good physical health. They assisted people to become more satisfied with their lives and to experience fewer symptoms of depression. In this retreat we will deeply explore the practice of kindness through discussion and guided meditation.

Ask yourself:

  • How is your heart in this moment?

  • Would you like it to feel open and compassionate?

  • Then this retreat is for you.

CELEBRATION WORKSHOP

This workshop was created for a very special student who wanted to create an alternative to the typical wedding shower. It was my privilege to create this workshop as a celebration for this couple as they began a new life together as well as a gift to all their guests.

This is now available to anyone who would like something different for her wedding shower. The theme is It's All About Love. During this workshop we discuss what love is and how it manifests in our lives, we practice a metta or loving kindness meditation, creative writing, discussion, and a blessing ceremony.

This workshop is also appropriate for re-commitment ceremonies or anniversaries. If you are interested in having this workshop at your celebration please contact Cindy.

 

REIKI WORKSHOPS

About the Reiki Attunement Process
Reiki Attunements open and expand the Ki-holding capacity and clear energy blockages. They open a channel for the Reiki energy to flow from practitioner to client. The more a practitioner uses Reiki the clearer and stronger the flow becomes.The attunement process is what makes Reiki stand apart from other types of healing systems. Although others healing arts may use hand positions on the client, only Reiki has the wonderful benefit of the attunement process. For this reason, you cannot learn Reiki through reading about it, it has to be transferred by a Reiki Master Teacher.
