  • Dream Group - Not Meeting at This Time

    June 17, 2020  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    All dreams come in the service of health and wholeness.
    ~Jeremy Taylor

    "Working with dreams" means remembering and exploring the dreams with an eye to their symbolic meaning. Each one of us is uniquely blind to the deeper meanings of our own dreams, and group dream work helps us see what amazing gifts are there below the surface of their obvious appearance. Work with your dreams for personal growth, remembering one of the most important things Jung said about dreams and dreamwork: "It is not in understanding our dreams which brings about transformation, but the intensity with which we engage the images."

    A lunch time dream group will meet for 1 hour. Please bring a dream and be prepared to share a dream title.

    The group will choose one dream per session to explore in detail using the projective technique, The Haden Method.

  • NOW ONLINE! Morning Guided Mindfulness Meditation

    June 23, 2020  7:30 am - 8:00 am

    This is a donation based class. We will have a few donation options once you register or if you want to offer a different amount, please register as free and donate HERE by selecting an existing amount or choose the "other" category. All the proceeds will go to the Center for Mindful Living. Led by Janka Livoncova.
     

    This class will focus on developing the skill of paying attention to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience, and compassion. By intentionally practicing mindfulness, deliberately paying more careful moment-to-moment attention, we can live more fully and less on ‘automatic pilot,’ thus, being more present for our own lives. This class is appropriate for new as well as experienced meditators.
