Ocean of Devotion Gong-Meditation
Saturday, April 22nd
2 PM – 3:30 PM
$35 at the door
Preston Klik’s Ocean of Devotion Gong-Meditation is a gentle, often quiet, but at times powerfully intense experience. It’s a 90-minute acoustic journey with periods of verbal guidance. Preston plays a 36-inch Heart Gong, as well as crystal & Himalayan bowls, ocean & frame drums, Indian swarmpura, chimes, and more to provide a dynamic auditory experience. This richly cinematic musical odyssey-meditation is as beautiful to the eye as it is to the ear, heart, body, mind and spirit.

“Yin and Yang Yoga: An Exploration in Stillness, Alchemy, Power and Flow.”
– Paulie Zink
This class will reveal the deeper dimensions of Yin and Yang yoga. From the stillness of Yin comes motion.
The purpose of Yin yoga is to grow the body flexible and promote healing, to develop our flow of energy, and to enliven our innate ability to move with fluidity, power, and grace.
Paulieʼs approach to yoga is about following our own individual path. By presenting his art in a personal, authentic, and accessible manner Paulie gently guides us in opening to our intuitive hearts and discovering the unique artist that is inherent in each of us.
The class will include both the yin and yang aspects of yoga postures that are inspired by the movements of animals and that activate the elemental forces contained within our energetic field. Through this practice we fully engage our connection with the natural world, we awaken to our spontaneous and playful spirit, we transcend the boundaries of assumed limitations and learn more than just a technique for doing yoga, we learn a way of being yoga, of living it in our day to day lives. We can then bring these gifts to the lives of those we touch.
