Friday, March 23, 2018
Come celebrate the beginning of summer while discovering a powerful tool for empowerment and well-being. Recreational drumming is not about the music.

Savor – Mindful Eating Dinner Workshop
Friday, June 22, 2018
Mindful eating is simply eating with attention. But in our fast-food, eat-on-the-run world, just paying attention to what you are eating and how you are eating can be challenging. For overall wellness, nourishment and digestive health, how we eat can be as important as what we eat! Join us for an evening of slowing down, savoring each bite, honoring our bodies and celebrating the abundance we’ve been given.

Release: Winter Solstice Yoga Workshop
Wednesday, December 19, 2018
Winter is a season for rest in the natural world. Shorter days, longer nights and cooler weather invite us to slow down and to journey inward. Take time out from the holiday hustle to reconnect to your body and your soul. Join us for a time of gentle yoga as we join body and breath through moving meditation and reflect on the seasonal invitations that winter offers.
Healing occurs in using our creative gifts, being with a loving community of women and sharing those gifts with others. I truly believe this love goes a long way.

A group of women gathered together to celebrate the season and reconnect with our bodies and souls. It was such a beautiful way to head into the Christmas weekend, acknowledging and celebrating the darkness that comes before the light. I felt so grounded and relaxed after this event, and also excited and eager for the magic of the Christmas holiday to come. For me, the most wonderful outcome of this event came the next morning, when I found out that we had raised enough money to help purchase yoga props for the mamas to be at Elizabeth House.read more
Our thoughts and actions surrounding the nourishment of our bodies is often reflected in how we nourish the rest of the self. If we rush through every meal and feel guilty after eating foods that aren’t “clean” or otherwise virtuous, chances are that our lives are sprinkled with unwarranted shame in areas that we may not even be aware of.read more
Little did I know that this act of embodiment is fundamentally both empowering and an act of self love. During the retreat we were invited to practice embodiment by slowly becoming aware of our bodies through practices like meditation, dance, and self-reflection. Though it may sound like a simple task I have come to learn that it is an act of courage.read more
