DECEMBER 2018 HAPPENINGS!

Learn To Drum: Community Drum Class with Wolf Friday, Dec 7th, 2018 7pm -8:30pm $15 Advance/ $20 at Door

Looking to get started learning to drum, or to improve your basic abilities and move more towards intermediate skills? Then, join us Friday, Dec. 7th 7pm. This class is appropriate for Beginner to Intermediate players, on ANY STYLE of Hand Drum or Percussion Instrument!

Join us the first Friday of every month for a fun introduction to the foundational skills and concepts of Worldbeat Hand Drumming including hand technique, listening, polyrhythmic structure, and relating to Clave and Downbeat.

Our goal is to impart correct hand technique for the instruments and teach you to think polyrhythmically, allowing your expressive and improvisational skills to organically evolve. Bring your own drum or use one of our class drums!

We will focus on showing you the basics of technique on your instrument, and then we will work on various drills, rhythmic counting and voicing techniques, Call-and-Response exercises, and then we will construct a unique polyrhythmic orchestration each week, teaching basic worldbeat cadences and the principles of transformation that underlie the great rhythm traditions!

This allows us to teach the Musicality of Community Drumming. The traditions of Worldbeat percussion evolved to facilitate a village of players cooperating to create coherent collaborative rhythms, where everyone uniquely contributes and everyone’s contribution is felt. It is this concerted effort that gives these rhythms their community-building potential.

90 minutes class $15 in advance. $20 day of class. Use of drums are on a first come first serve basis. If you need to “borrow” a drum, reserve your place early to ensure one!

We have planned a Very Special evening Tuesday, Oct. 16th at 7:30pm: Yoga Nidra & the Handpan.
Yoga Nidra is a Sanskrit word often translated as yogic sleep. It is an ancient practice which systematically induces complete mental, physical, and emotional relaxation. It is said that with Yoga Nidra one accesses a realm that is beyond waking and dreaming.

The Handpan is not only a very unique-looking instrument, but is capable of very rich and beautiful sounds that will only add to the meditative atmosphere of our Yoga Nidra. It sounds heavenly. Magical. Soothing.

Justin is an Orlando musician and producer who creates hip hop and ambient music. “The first time I heard a handpan, I knew I had to get one! One of the things that really attracted me to the instrument is the numerous types of scales that the creators make. The one I have is a Celtic D scale. When you listen to it, you can almost hear a Celtic, Irish accent to it.”

Benefits of Yoga Nidra
Aside from being relaxing, restorative and restful, studies have shown that yoga nidra can also:
• Ease insomnia
• Decrease anxiety
• Alleviate stress
• Reduce PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency
• Heighten awareness and focus

Community Drum Circle with Wolf Friday, Sept 7th, 2018 8:30pm -10pm

Community Drum Circle
A dream come true! We are bringing Community Drum Circle to Oviedo! Join us for a FUN & magical evening Sept 7th immediately following our Learn to Drum Class. Festivities will begin 8:30pm
Calling ALL people of ALL levels of musical expertise! Come together in a community drum circle and share your rhythmical spirit with whatever drums and percussion instruments you have to bring to the event. You don’t have to be a drummer to participate. You don’t even have to have a drum. Shake a soda can with rocks in it, hit two sticks together or just come and dance! Participate just by being in our circle! Did we mention we will be under the energies of the New Moon?!
The spirit and magic of rhythm expressed on drums and percussion instruments cuts through all ages, sexes, religions, races and cultures. “Rhythm,” as Gabriel Roth says, “is the mother tongue.” Rhythm is a universal language known to every one, even the youngest child, if we can just “remember.” So in a very objective, yet beautiful way, an interactive rhythm event puts us all on an equal footing with each other and brings us closer together.
This event is Free. Donations accepted but not necessary.

Poses For A Pup Sunday, Sept 16th, 2018 2pm -4:30pm Donations for Jezzie the dog

Meet Jezzie! She was brought to the Orange County shelter as a stray in horrific condition. At the shelter, they called her Adele. This beautiful girl popped up in my FB feed with only a few more hours to live before she would be euthanized due to medical issues. You see, some horrible person abused her. She is only 4 years old and has heartworm disease. But wait. Unfortunately, there is more. She has chemical burns all down her backside along with kennel tail- her tail is split due to wagging it against a cage. We surmise she was used as a bait dog.
Endless Pawsibilities Animal Rescue stepped up and saved this sweet girl and she is now in the care of Shey’s Veterinary Hospital. They renamed her Jezzie! Her healing process has begun. She’s had several rounds of wound debridement and laser therapy, and she’s healing faster than anyone could imagine!
Jezzie is a cuddle bug but has some separation anxiety. She cries and barks when she’s alone. The Rescue is working on that. She loves her lamb and owl toys and mealtime is always an exciting affair for her. She loves exploring in the back yard and playing ball.
Unfortunately, Jezzie is heartworm positive and she will have to undergo treatment once her burns are healed. That will take some time but she’ll be completely healthy soon. Her happy tail (kennel tail) is not healing the way they had hoped for so unfortunately, she will have her tail amputated.

As you can imagine, this little girl’s medical bills are sky high. Jezzie and Endless Pawsibilities Animal Rescue needs our help! So, let’s show Jezzie some LOVE! Join us Sunday, Sept 16th for Poses For A Pup! An afternoon planned with lots of ways to donate, have some fun & help Jezzie get better!

We are offering two yoga classes:
Acoustic Slow Flow with Leslie Faircloth featuring live acoustic guitar with Bird Dog Bobby at 2pm
You will be taken through each pose slowly and mindfully, even the transitions from pose to pose is like one long slow graceful dance, filling you with a sense of freedom and peace. Build a stronger body while releasing tension and flow your way into a more blissful state! You will learn about deepening your breath and how it anchors you in your body, helping you to live more in the present moment. Good for beginners and seasoned yogis as well. Sometimes, less is more!
Ending with Yoga Nidra with Alex Wilkinson

Chakra Flow with Serenity Tedesco ending with Crystal Bowls at 3:30pm
This unique class focuses on the seven chakras. Chakras, or the “Wheels of Life”, are energy centers of the body. We have seven main chakras beginning at the base of our spine and ending at the top of our head. They relate to everything from our feelings of safety and security to creativity, inner drive, ability to give and receive unconditional love, speak our mind, follow our intuition, and connect with a force greater than ourselves. Working with the chakra system can help us foster a deeper relationship with the self and illuminate areas of strength and weakness not just in the physical body but our mental, emotional and spiritual bodies as well.
During our Chakra Flow, you will move through poses that help align each individual chakra, moving up the spine form the root (Muladhara) chakra to the crown (Sahasrara) chakra. With seamlessly transitions from one to the next, guiding you into poses that open each chakra, along with sharing each chakra’s individual characteristics. A healing and fun practice for all levels!

Clean Juice will be joining us with some of their yummy organic juices!
Get a picture of your pup by Luma Photography!
Angel Card Readings by Barbara Iñiguez!
Raffles & More!
Spread the word! Come meet Jezzie! Show her some LOVE & let’s get this sweet, sweet girl healed and healthy! All Donations Are Tax Deductible! EPAR is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charity.

Fall Equinox Celebration: Balance & Gratitude Saturday, Sept. 22nd, 2018 4:30pm – 6:30pm $20

Join us Saturday, Sept 22nd 4:30pm- 6:30pm as we welcome in the Fall Equinox!
Welcome in the fall! September welcomes the shorter days and cooler temperatures characteristic of the fall. We will light candles, meditate with stones, share, eat, laugh, celebrate! The Handpan! Crystal Bowls! Community! Join us
Before entering the space, each person will be cleansed with copal. Copal is used to purify the energy of spaces, places and objects. It is a wonderful energy tool to use during meditations. It is linked with the crown chakra, deepening your awareness and encouraging pure thoughts during meditation. Copal also helps to strengthen the auric body, removing all energy blockages. It is particularly useful in times of stress or even for alleviating feelings of depression, because it helps you to shift your mindset.
Next, we will begin the celebration with a meditation focusing on Balance. The meditation will be accompanied by Justin & his magical Handpan.
On fall autumnal equinox day and night are equal. Thus, it is said to be a day of balance because the day and night are approximately the same lengths. We can’t experience light without the dark and vice versa. When the day and night are of equal length, it offers a powerful vibration and harmony between the time of creation (night) and the time of manifestation (day). This allows the flow between creation and manifestation to be more seamless and flows with ease and effortlessness.
After the meditation, we will break bread together and share in a potluck feast. We welcome you to bring a dish to share, though not necessary!
While we feast & commune, you will be encouraged to make a gratitude list. The autumn equinox is a time of harvest. Making a list of everything you are thankful for is a way of reaping your inner harvest. Gratitude brings abundance.
The second meditation will be focused on Gratitude and will be accompanied by the wonderful crystal bowls.
We will end with a closing ceremony.
Please come with an open mind. Wear comfortable clothing. Bring a yoga mat, pillow, blanket, water – your comfort needs! Also, please bring pen, paper or a journal. $20

“One who plays the gong plays the universe. The gong is not an ordinary thing to play. Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word. . . . ‘The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the Gong. It is the first sound of the universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.”
-Yogi Bhajan

Justin is an Orlando musician and producer who creates hip hop and ambient music. “The first time I heard a handpan, I knew I had to get one! One of the things that really attracted me to the instrument is the numerous types of scales that the creators make. The one I have is a Celtic D scale. When you listen to it, you can almost hear a Celtic, Irish accent to it.”

Benefits of Yoga Nidra

Aside from being relaxing, restorative and restful, studies have shown that yoga nidra can also:

  • Ease insomnia
  • Decrease anxiety
  • Alleviate stress
  • Reduce PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency
  • Heighten awareness and focus
  • Transform negative habits, behaviors and ways of thinking
  • Foster feelings of peace, calm, and clarity

Join us for a blissful evening of Yoga Nidra while the studio is filled with the magical music of the Handpan!

JULY 2018 HAPPENINGS!

HealthRHYTHMS® Group Empowerment Drumming Friday July 13th 7pm-8pm $15 in advance/ $20 day of event

Experience the benefits of rhythm/sound and the effects it has on the mind, body & soul! Join Wolf Murphy as he leads and guides us through a journey of drumming. We are super excited about this event!
There are proven biological benefits of drumming. A Neurologist and his renowned research team discovered that a specific group drumming approach (HealthRHYTHMS protocol) significantly increased the disease fighting activity of circulating white blood cells (Natural Killer cells) that seek out and destroy cancer cells and virally-infected cells. Along with conventional medical strategies, the neurologist includes HealthRHYTHMS group drumming in all of his disease-based programs at the Mind-Body Wellness Center in Pennsylvania.
One thing that makes HealthRHYTHMS unique is that it can be adapted to virtually any population. It’s for you – HealthRHYTHMS teaches you strategies for nurturing, reducing stress and building camaraderie and support through drumming. HealthRHYTHMS is a group empowerment drumming protocol that is utilized in clinical, workplace, education and wellness settings.
To a great extent, the lifestyle choices we choose today will certainly be reflected in the future we create one step at a time. For health is not a goal– it is a journey traveled throughout our lifetime.
Our choices pave the way to a path of personal discovery where the elements that have particular meaning for us become the building blocks for creating a balanced and healthy life. These choices include diet, exercise, nurturing, social support, spiritual practice, intellectual stimulation, stress reduction, coping skills and creative expression.
The challenge for each of us is finding time for creating a healthy balance. It’s not surprising that in our fast-paced society it’s difficult to establish a routine that allows us to blend our wellness choices in a healthy manner. And that’s precisely where this form of music-making fits in.
HealthRHYTHMS Group Empowerment Drumming harnesses so many elements of wellness in one activity that anyone can enjoy. Group drumming is an enjoyable, accessible and fulfilling activity from the start for everyone. From exercise, nurturing and social support, to intellectual stimulation, spirituality and stress reduction, group drumming stimulates creative expression that unites our minds, bodies and spirits!”
HealthRHYTHMS can serve as an effective means for restoring a sense of inner balance amidst the incredible challenges of life. Join us! $15 in advance. $20 day of event. To purchase in advance, please follow the link

JUNE 2018 HAPPENINGS!

Resilience Yoga Class For Vets: Saturday, June 2, 1pm- 2:15pm

Join Alex Wilkinson as he guides you through this trauma-sensitive class- meshing breathwork with a flow through the asanas (physical postures). Allowing veterans to become mindfully present and relaxed on their mats. Upon completion of this practice, yogis will be guided through Yoga Nidra to fully relax the body, mind, and soul.

Suitable for all levels. Come with an open mind! Bring your yoga mat and a bottle of water and see how yoga can help. Cost for Veterans & Active Military is FREE! Family members are welcomed to join for $10.
Alex Wilkinson is a certified yoga instructor with a practice that synchronizes breath with movement allowing students to become mindfully present. Focusing his trauma-sensitive practice around recovery; specialized for veterans, active-duty military and anyone with traumatic experiences.
Alex has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and is currently an Electrician Apprentice. Alex’s goal is of sharing his practice with as many veterans as possible, to allow for the medical and physical evidence to enlighten the spirit/soul of all those whom practice.
Alex’s flow will help align your pranayama (controlling the breath) and grant you to be fully present while soothing the mind.

Why veterans should practice yoga:
1. Healthy Alternative to Conventional Drugs and Therapy
Many veterans returning to civilian life find themselves coping with anxiety and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Conventional counseling therapies and anti-anxiety medications may not be the solution for everyone. Since yoga cultivates a calm mind and helps reduce stress and tension both physically and mentally, it is now considered a legitimate holistic alternative to conventional treatments.

2. Calms the Nervous System
PTSD and other anxiety-related disorders are often caused by the nervous system “freezing.” Anxiety causes repeated reactions in both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, which can cause everything from nightmares to emotional detachment. The “go with the flow” nature of yoga is a stark contrast to the military’s “take orders” mentality. The release and relaxation that yoga provides can “unfreeze” the nervous system and facilitate a much-needed release.
3. Helps with Physical Trauma
In addition to being beneficial to the mental and emotional traumas that veterans may suffer, yoga can also be beneficial to those living with physical injuries. Yoga is often far less intense than most “stress relieving” exercises. Rather than relying on physical exhaustion, yoga focuses on mindfulness. This means that the pace and intensity are low enough that poses can be modified for any body and most injuries.
4. Strengthens the Mind-Body Connection
Since yoga asks practitioners to focus on the present moment, this encourages a stronger mind and body connection. Feeling as though they are more in control of their body and thoughts helps soldiers regain a sense of empowerment and safety. Yoga should be approached with patience and a certain degree of discipline, which helps to retrain and calm veterans’ minds.

5. Creates a Sense of Community
One of the most important things for veterans, and for human beings in general, is to find a group of people or a community who support and understand them. Practicing yoga with other veterans can be a great opportunity to bond and share a calm – and even spiritual – connection. The sense of community that practicing yoga creates is valuable for everyone, especially active duty or veterans who need to feel supported.

APRIL 2018 HAPPENINGS!

Ayurvedic Spring/Seasonal Workshop Saturday, April 7th, 2018 4:30pm – 6:30pm

Spring forward with a Seasonal Support Workshop $20

Cleansing is natural in spring – we often feel a deep urge to rid ourselves of old unwanted items, creating new space around us.

As we move into the warmer, dryer and vibrant springtime, we can experience new energy and lightness which can bring spring colds and allergies.

Join us as we honor the change in the seasons and learn basic Ayurvedic spring practices to support optimal health. Our workshop will include an Intro to Ayurvedic basics, a seasonal yoga practice suitable for all levels, and tips to keep you balanced both on and off your mat as we transition into Spring.  Sign up at https://www.facebook.com/events/151772278827060/

 

Introduction to A Course In Miracles (ACIM) Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 $10

Are you yearning to bring more love into your life? More peace? Then join us for a evening as we dive into the foundation of A Course in Miracles.

Many of you may have heard of this course through Marianne Williamson and her book: A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”

A Course in Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual thought system. As a three-volume curriculum consisting of a Text, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers, it teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others. The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy. A Course in Miracles also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are “many thousands.” Consequently, even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles therefore is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.

The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.

The Course can be summed up very simply in this way: “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.
Here in lies the peace of God.”

Join Andrew Kwiatkowski, as he leads us through the evening. We will begin with greeting and introductions, followed by a brief meditation: invitation to the Holy Spirit and opening prayer.
Then, Andrew will explain the Divine Inspiration to the Scribe of the course. Moving into a reading from the first chapter and discussion, the first workbook lesson , Q.A. and finally, closing prayer. The class is only $10! Sign up at https://www.facebook.com/events/844825989031855/

About Andrew:
A retired blue collar worker, having been both an electrician and a mechanic. Most of my life I have sought a personal relationship with God but did not find satisfaction in traditional religious theology. I began to read self-help and spiritual books. About 8 years ago, A Course in Miracles found me. From the first page it stirred my soul and has been my primary source of spiritual fulfillment. I am excited to share the teachings of A Course in Miracles with each and every one of you! It is my hope these teachings will resonate with your soul as it has mine!

Reconnect & Unleash Your Imagination Saturday, April 28th, 2018 4:30pm – 6:30pm $45 Advance/ $55 at door

Remember when you were a child the images you could conjure up in a matter of minutes? Our creativity was off the chart. Unfortunately, due to our busy lives and lack of focus, our imagination and creativity can diminish.
All intuitive work originates in the imagination. The imagination for many people has been discarded as not real. That is completely false. All genius originates in the imagination. Creation begins with the ability to imagine. To see!
People who work in the realm of genius experience divine guidance and miracles every day. For many, the imagination is something that has been dismissed, invalidated and trivialized. Yet it is the imagination that is the platform for all genius and inspiration to come through.
Did you know a few synonyms for creativity are: inventiveness, innovation originality, individuality, inspiration, vision, enterprise, initiative and resourcefulness. The synonyms for imagination are extremely similar. Funny, huh?
If you feel your imagination is lacking and you have difficulty visualizing and concentrating, then we invite you to ignite your imagination. Reconnect to that old friend!
Join Kelley Des Marais, local artist extraordinaire, and Leigh Ann McNair, LMT, as they create a magical 4 part workshop in helping you to ignite your imagination! We will play and create with paint, mixed media, color, words, meditation, sounds, Reiki and more! Let’s open our 3rd eye, our 6th chakra. Let’s connect with our inner child. Let’s play, create, and have fun.
Every class you will create a piece of art to take home! No experience necessary! Remember we are igniting our imagination! Join us for one class or all four!
