YOGA FOR GRIEF
May
27
to Aug 26

YOGA FOR GRIEF

Date: Last Sunday of the Month | Starts May 27

Time:

Unlike other emotions that easily pass through our daily human experience, grief has a unique way of taking hold and demanding our attention.  By addressing it with loving and unconditional support, grief has a transformative power. Grief is not something to "get over." It is a natural part of the human condition. In fact, if you live long enough, you will experience grief at some point; the loss of a loved one, a career, a dream or even the state of the world. When the wave of grief comes, it comes with important lessons. When met with compassion and mindful awareness, grief can be a powerful teacher. 

Join yoga therapists and hospice clinicians, Carrie Tyler, RN and Avantika Waleryszak, MSW, at this special monthly gathering.  Together we will explore the balance between two different core emotions, infusing gentle yoga with rituals,  journaling, art, meditation and breathwork.

Discover:: Soundbath Journey

SOLD OUT!

Please CONTACT US if you would like to be placed on the waitlist

Everything is vibration - our bodies, our thoughts, and the world around us - and we are at our best when we are in alignment, attuned to our own highest vibration. Join us for an evening of creating vibrational healing led by Ankati Day. Using song and crystal singing bowls, Ankati will invite you into a deep state of relaxation to clear and restore your energy.

Sound healing is the use of physical sound vibrations (crystal bowls and voice) for therapeutic benefit. Crystal Singing Bowls specifically connect to the crystalline cells/structures in our physical body and vibrate out into our energetic body, our Chakra systems. This can help one go deeper into an Theta state of deep meditation and healing.

A Special New Year's Evolutionary Lightwork

SOLD OUT! Please CONTACT US if you would like to be on the waiting list.

MEET SHEILAGH

Since 1993 something incredible has emerged out of my desire to understand the nature of True Healing.

What began as an inquiry into the root causes of illness and suffering
became a path of learning and self-discovery that changed the direction of my life and brought me to who I am now-

A healer, teacher and facilitator of Conscious Evolution.

My Learning Intensive
My path began in Boulder, Colorado. I had moved there to complete my undergraduate degree and just about the time my college days ended my “learning intensive” in True Healing began. For 10 years I studied and apprenticed with the best healers and pioneers in the emerging approaches for healing trauma and the nervous system. Some of my most intense learning came from a serious car accident which resulted in a minor traumatic brain injury.

My personal recovery process gave me a profound understanding and respect for the healing wisdom held in the body. The trauma of the accident also opened up perceptual pathways and once again I was able to see the energy patterns causing illness – but now my awareness and intuition were grounded in a wealth of learning and wisdom.

My Healing Practice
Pulling together all I had learned about healing, trauma and the human bio-energetic system, I opened up my energy work practice. I named it Co-creative Health to highlight the importance of entering into partnership with our body, our Soul and the forces that sustain us in order for True Healing to occur.

During my healing process, I developed a deep respect for Chinese Medical Philosophy and knew it would play an important role in my healing practice. In order to incorporate the ancient arts of Chinese Herbal medicine and acupuncture into my work, I enrolled in Southwest Acupuncture College and earned a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine.

‎ Tai-Chi Chuan Workshop

Introduction To Tai-Chi Long Form
Sunday, DECEMBER 3, 2017 @ Shilo Farms Eco Lodge & Retreat
All Levels Welcome! No Experence Needed

The Classical Yang Family Long Form is a traditional Tai-Chi Chuan form passed down to family members and disciples by the Great-Great Grand Master Yang Cheng-Fu (1883-1936) who is famously known as the father of the 108 Form. 

The descriptive meaning of Tai-Chi is “superior-ultimate”. In other literal versions it is known as a “moving meditation” or “moving like a great river”. The word Chuan means fist”. In Chinese texts Chuan also means boxing”. Together Tai-Chi Chuan means Superior-Ultimate Shadow Boxing. This practice is a martial art with slow, relaxed, and flowing movements. It is ideal for those seeking gentle rehabilitative exercises for reducing tension and stress of the body. In today’s modern medicine doctors refer Tai-Chi to their clients for supporting balance and controlling anxiety. Devoted students are known to study Tai-Chi Chuan for “innate power” of your “true nature” through calmness. It is a low impact exercise that emphasizes on balance, grace, and fluidity through motion.

As you learn the late Yang Cheng Fu’s form you will focus on physical body alignments (body structure) and methods of moving (body mechanics) to prevent and heal various injuries as well as making both body and mind stronger more relaxed and focused. The internal frame is largely emphasized with expanded movements specialized in what we refer to as Qi, Energy in the body. (See schedule below)

This class is lead by Kampa VaShi Deva (Sifu Nicanor Snow) founder of the Seacoast Tai-Chi Institute
