SOMATIC BREATH THERAPY: Saturday | Oct 27
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
"Stress in the body or fear in the mind instantly alters the breath patterns. Breath combined with consciousness has an added impact on harmonizing the conflicting unconscious forces that keep you from being relaxed and focused in daily life. Breath connects the body to the mind and the mind to the body. Breath is a bridge between body-mind because it is subtler than the body and grosser than the mind."
Yoga Amrit Desai
Preregistration required, call 1-413-512-0470 or email email@example.com

MEDITATION with Danielle Fogarty
One SATURDAY a month: Sept 29, Oct 13, Nov 24, Dec 8
10:00 - 11:15 AM
FREE (donation to support studio gratefully accepted but not required)
Danielle says, "Since loving nap-time in pre-K, I've longed for stillness, for quiet, for calm, for peace. When I read that 'I am not my thoughts'--noticeable relief settled in. Practicing slowing down thought and expanding space between and around thought is a return to stillness, quiet, calm, peace. Using Eckhart Tolle as a guide is a gentle path toward stillness."
This will be an opportunity to explore sitting quietly and perhaps finding the clear space inside.
Meditation is not random, it will not suddenly descend upon you.......it takes a little introduction and then some practice
