Meditation and Tools for Self-care with Kelly Gordon

This workshop is for those who want to learn how to stimulate the body’s own natural healing abilities with gentle movement and meditation. We will incorporate key principals from Energy Work and focus on deepening mind-body synchronization and developing your kinesthetic sense of energy. Experience an introduction into blending energy work with mindfulness meditation, learn more about your nervous system and gain new tools to help you deepen your yoga, dance or bodywork practice.

Explore the benefits of the healing art of homeopathy with Anika Harrer & Ming Dinh

Homeopathy is a powerful healing system that is uniquely able to restore health and well-being by correcting the energetic imbalance that lies at the core of all illness.  This workshop will provide you with a basic understanding of health and disease from a holistic perspective.  Discover how constitutional treatment by a homeopath can stimulate your body’s own defense mechanism, and how homeopathic remedies treat the individual person rather than the disease.  Learn how homeopathy can be used effectively as a means of self-care at home for yourself and your family.  You will leave with simple first aid and acute remedy knowledge, and a homeopathic first aid remedy to be added to your own kit.

Ayurvedic Oils & Self-Massage with Ocean

Abhyanga, the art of self-massage, is an essential part of maintaining a long and healthy life in the Ayurvedic tradition.  Your skin is the largest organ of your body; it is your interface with the outside world.  Daily—or even weekly—self-massage is great way to nourish the skin and stimulate the tissues and nervous system to create healthy, glowing, radiant skin.  In this session you will learn the basic steps of Abhyanga so that you can treat yourself to a daily massage as well as learn how to give yourself a foot massage that will help ground your energy at the end of the day so that you can drop into deeper sleep.  You will also learn about different oils so that you can choose the best oil for your skin.  Treat yourself, treat your body to the art of self-massage.
