Chakradance: Awakening the Chakras - Week 3 of 9 - Dance of Sensuality
It is from the sacral chakra that we connect with our inner feminine energy (which resides within both men and women). Our feminine energy is our receptive/yin energy.

You want to meet her in an inner journey and hear and feel her messages. Lindsay will guide you on an inner journey with visualizations to help you access your sacral chakra. After the dance you will create a mandala art to take home with you that is a visual representation of the energy present in your sacral chakra. No dance experience or chakra knowledge necessary. Special introductory rate of $99 ($11/class) if pre-registered or $13 drop in.

The Resilience Advantage™ Program - Stress Awareness & Reduction Training

Elizabeth Smith - HeartMath® is a scientifically-validated system of stress intervention techniques and objective biometric feedback that quantifiably-and dramatically-boosts the health and performance of individuals and organizations. Research shows how emotions impact our heart rhythm patterns. Renewing emotions create coherent heart rhythms, which are a smooth and ordered pattern. In contrast, depleting emotions create chaotic, erratic patterns. Using a heart rhythm monitor, you can actually see your heart rhythms change in real time as you shift from stressful emotions like anger or anxiety to renewing feelings like care or appreciation. Coherent heart rhythm patterns facilitate higher brain function and renew energy levels. Whereas depleting emotions inhibit your ability to think clearly and drain energy levels. You'll receive personalized instruction in basic HeartMath techniques and your own personal workbook to help you apply to the area of your life where you want the most benefit. You'll learn how to measure your progress and physiological changes with HeartMath's award winning Inner Balance™ and emWave® technology HeartMath is a registered trademark of the Institute of HeartMath. emWave is a registered trademark of Quantum Intech, Inc. Inner Balance is a trademark of Quantum Intech, Inc. Resilience Advantage is a trademark of Doc Childre. (Schedule B, 7 CEU - $125). Class time is 9 am-5 pm.

ReDiscovering Your Divine Essence
Marge Banse - Shamanic Counselor/ Spiritual Life Coach & Holly Moorman – Cosmetologist. We are all born with magnificent beauty, but as women, we are bombarded by the media (and society) with unrealistic definitions of "beauty". We accidentally internalize that expectation and begin to view ourselves as "less than", or through the goggles of others. This can lead to low self esteem, a skewed sense of self image, and a wide myriad of false negative beliefs which cloud the shining Divine Essence (self) God Created, and intended for us to enjoy. Join us for a morning of rediscovering your beautiful Divine self. We will begin by discussing How to Accept Yourself, just as you are. We will discuss how family generational patterns, and social media, have shaped our self image, and the relationships we currently surround ourselves with. We will learn strategies to improve our own self image, improve the relationships we are blessed with, and bring a sense of peace and loving, self acceptance. We will continue our path of Discovering our Divine Essence by exploring the many secrets of hair care, make up , and general beauty tips, that make you feel beautiful and help the Divine Essence truly shine through. From: 9:00 am -11:00 AM. Open to all ages. Makes for a wonderful Mother - Daughter Activity. Cost: $25 / participant. Individual consultations available for an additional fee, following the workshop.  Location: North Gate Healing Sanctuary & Steel Magnolias, 117 Washington St, Edgewood Iowa.

ThetaHealing Intuitive Anatomy

Learn ThetaHealing with Master Instructor Pam Lord. The intuitive Anatomy class is an in-depth journey of discovery that takes ThetaHealing practitioners through the Body Intuitive, allowing them to intimately and intuitively meet the organs and systems. The student will discover the emotions and beliefs that are inherent in the body. This class offers healing to the bodies systems through the release of accumulated energetic emotions. We then explore the beliefs held in each system and their relationships to physical “dis-ease”. Students have ample time for self-healing and work with other class members to clear limiting beliefs. This is the class for the serious ThetaHealing practitioners who desire to become highly skilled at scanning and healing within the physical body using ThetaHealing. The instructor will guide the student to: Learn the magic of the human body; Learn that disease and disorders go hand in hand with the demonstration of emotions; Come to the realization that emotions are signals that the body is out of balance; Discover new emotional programs and beliefs that are attached to every body system; Understand how much space is taken up by negative emotions; Know the specific beliefs that come with diseases; Practice seeing into the body with body scans; Honor the client’s free agency. The clearer students become, the easier it is for them to work on their clients, and themselves. In each system, the student will encounter emotions, challenges and issues that they’ve carried for a very long time. Cost: $2000 with $200 deposit. Duration: 15 days. Prerequisites: Basic DNA and Advanced DNA. Instructor: Pam Lord 508-264-2220, email: pflynn-lord@live.com, www.DragonflyTheta.com.  This class is a 3 week seminar.

Chakradance: Awakening the Chakras - Week 6 of 9 - Dance of Expression
It is from the throat chakra that we are able to explore the vibrations of sound. Our words, and the intention behind them, hold vibrations and therefore impact our entire being. When we become more aware of the world on a vibrational level, we open up to communication on a different level - we 'tune into' the vibes. We can feel when something, someone, or a place 'resonates' with us. Lindsay will guide you on an inner journey with visualizations to help you access your throat chakra. After the dance you will create a mandala art to take home with you that is a visual representation of the energy present in your throat chakra.  No dance experience or chakra knowledge necessary. Special introductory rate of $99 ($11/class) if pre-registered or $13 drop in. Accepted payment methods: Cash or paypal.me/lindsaybodenhofer.  Call/email/text Lindsay to register: 563-212-2406 * journeyintobeing@outlook.com.
