We will be preparing and serving Lithuanian tea filled with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, hormone balancing, and alkalizing properties. Tea will be served before we begin the ceremony.

The ceremony will end with aromatherapy and vibrational sound journey as we feel the tea merging in our bloodstream, assisting healing and cleansing of our cells.

“Sound enters the healing equation from several directions: It may alter cellular functions through energetic effects; it may entrain biological systems to function more homeostatically; it may calm the mind and therefore the body; or it may have emotional effects, which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, which in turn help to regulate the immune system – the healer within.” ~ Science of Sound.

This will be a great way to connect to your higher self with heart-centered intentions, a discipline of the mind, creating humility, and simplicity. To be in harmony with nature, and attain the purity of enlightenment.

♥ All tea will be for sale 2 hours after the ceremony ♥

We welcome you to join us in our sacred sharing space, the Circle of Oneness! Our group is comprised of those seeking a safe haven to develop and integrate their ever-expanding spiritual gifts while working together in oneness to elevate personal consciousness, foster greater self-awareness and nurture a sense of self-empowerment.

Our group is based on the principles of: inclusion, unity, mutual trust, acceptance, confidentiality/safety, non-judgment, expansion and unconditional love. We welcome all whom are on a spiritual journey and would like to gather in fellowship with other like-minded, high-vibrational people!

As we join in the circle, each participant will have a chance to speak their truth while others listen and witness. This is a time for being heard and allowing for silent reception of another participants’ heart-felt share. During a share, the circle is silent giving the speaker full attention. Comments and advice may be shared after the entire circle has shared or outside of the sacred circle space.

Whether you are just beginning your spiritual journey or have been walking your path for some time, in this space you are supported and heard as an equal; as one.

This is a donation based circle.

The circle will meet every 4th Sunday of the month. Next meeting time:

Embark on a journey into the heart of bodywork as it is practiced in Thailand, and explore how it is connected to western massage therapy modalities. There will be a strong focus on mindfulness, flowing movement, and the use of forearms and elbows to release tension. The class will be conducted on Thai mats on the ground. You will be crawling, rolling, and in general, joyfully hanging out on the floor.

This weekend course is a wonderful option for massage therapists looking to get inspired with new ways to move, stretch and use compression on their clients. The workshop is also appropriate for yoga teachers and those who are curious about the practice.

Paul has been teaching this course since 2003 and has been practicing Thai bodywork since 1999. Students have the opportunity to hear stories from Paul’s yearly trips to Thailand as he shares a clear understanding of body mechanics and energetic connections. Paul brings a sense of humor to his teachings that keeps the class fun and informative. Light-bulb moments are guaranteed!
