Start Where You are: The Four Noble Truths
Tuesday May 22 6:30PM-8:30pm | $25
In the pursuit of happiness and peace, it is essential to start where you are. The First Noble Truth proclaimed by the Buddha, rather than promising transcendent blissful states, invites us to explore our actual state of mind, including all our stress, anxiety, doubt, depression, and fear. By not running away from ourselves, by facing the challenge of living as it is, we can look deeper at the causes of our suffering and achieve greater freedom and ease.
This meditation workshop with David Nichtern includes meditation instruction and practice, lecture and discussion. Open to all levels. Can be taken together with the “Relaxing Your Agenda” workshop for $40.
Relaxing Your Agenda

If you find that your “project mentality” has overcome your joie de vivre this meditation workshop with David Nichtern might be a good workshop for you.
Sometimes when we move into the “spiritual” realms of yoga and meditation, we can turn these pursuits into our next heavy-handed project for self-improvement. Is there a way to develop a sense of well-being, mindful appreciation, and disciplined awareness with a light touch and a sense of humor?
Aligning with Your Heart’s Desire
JUNE 16TH 2:00PM-4:30Pm | $25
Join Senior Yoga Teacher & Certified Health & Life Coach Stacey Brass-Russell for a special Yoga & Transformational Coaching Workshop. Experience Asana, Pranayama and Meditation as powerful tools that help you clarify your vision for what you want, recognize and remove obstacles and uncover a path towards your next empowered action. Expect to move, breathe, relax, brainstorm and shift your beliefs about what is possible. Please bring a journal and a pen! Open to all levels but some yoga experience is recommended.
The workshop will begin with asana practice to open up the body and create energetic flow and then progress into relaxation, breathing and meditation as tools. Interspersed throughout the workshop will be coaching/journaling sections where students will be writing down responses to specific transformational coaching questions as they become more connected to their breath, their truth and having their minds untangle and become more relaxed and clear. What people will get – this is about letting oneself really connect to a vision for something they would like to bring into their life experience, recognize the obstacles of the mind that often come up and then uncover a path towards empowered action. They will leave having had a deep and powerful experience of body/mind connection, feeling inspired, and more aligned with their heart’s desire!
