What is the heart? This four part series will be an entry into a more profound and clear understanding of the role of the heart as a powerful energetic presence in your midst. There are four key aspects of living a heart-powered life: 1. Opening your heart. 2. Listening from your heart. 3. Communicating from your heart. 4. Following your heart.
In this class we will be co-creating and exploring simple practices that will bring to life the power of the heart:
~Developing a conscious awareness of the heart-mind relationship.
~ Learning your heart’s role in dismantling fear and its effects.
~Experiencing what you are—the energetic dimension of you.
~The role voice, sound, and frequency play in truly being empowered.
Inspirational Cinema “Sacred Science”

From the filmmakers: After a ton of preparation and research, we decided to bring eight people with eight different illnesses deep into the Amazon Rainforest to work with indigenous healers for 30 days. Once we put the word out to the public, we quickly had over 400 applications from people around the world, each desperate to find an answer to their illness. Even though there is documented proof that these jungle medicines are extremely effective, the research and patenting process takes so long that most of us will not live to see them used here in the modern world.
That’s where my team and I drew the line. We decided to take action. Parkinson’s disease, breast cancer, Crohn’s Disease, diabetes, depression, prostate cancer, neuroendocrine cancer, IBS, and more. I won’t spoil the ending but I will say this – the healing breakthroughs in this film will surprise you! Our mission is to bring this ancient healing knowledge to the people who need it most – while at the same time, honoring the indigenous communities that still hold this sacred healing wisdom. The regions of the world where this medicine still exists are being destroyed at an alarming pace and these tribes need all the support they can get.

Exploration Through Movement & Dance

Your body is wise. Your body knows. Your body is a divine instrument of expression. This monthly movement session is one which your body serves as your instructor. It is an invitation and opportunity to explore in movement and dance where and who you are in this particular moment in time. To facilitate this exploration, Sydney provides a playlist of music from a variety of genres and corners of the world. The music is assembled in a way that loosely resembles a rhythm wave from the Five Rhythm tradition. You are invited to listen deeply and explore how your body responds to the music, the space and the moment. Bring your curiosity, a sense of play, and wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in.

Yoga, Intentions, and Food
Tuesday at 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Instructor: Shade Anthonson
Have you ever had the thought, “If I just ate better then I would feel better.” One day I decided to test this truth. What did I find when I embarked on this journey? I was sitting in the break room at work being mindful while eating fruit and nuts. I noticed the fruit I ate gave me energy and the nuts calmed me down. Several days later I read an article on nutrition stating while eating a raw diet that nuts can be used to boost energy. The next time I was eating nuts I noticed the nuts had the effect of increasing my energy. By simply changing my belief the nuts affected my body in an entirely different way.
This is a striking example of not only “you are what you eat” but also how our thoughts and beliefs about food also effect the body. I came to the realization why there are so many different diets that work for so many different people. While the choice of foods relating to a certain body type and condition are important, the positive thoughts and beliefs about the foods we eat also have a profound effect on health. Scripture says “A person cannot live on bread alone but on every word that God speaks”. How can we align our will with our beliefs in order to become healthier? In this class we will be learning about how food effects our body, and how beliefs effect our food. We will be exploring the relationship between these two levels of truth and much more! Wear comfortable clothing for yoga. Bring a snack to share that you believe will promote healing.
