Saturday, October 13 Opening the Heart: Energy, Art & Meditation
Description: Opening your heart is one of the most powerful ways of expanding as a human being. Opening the heart allows you to experience greater love, joy and connection to life & beauty. We tend to store our pain and trauma in the heart, which creates blocks preventing us from fully receiving and giving love. In the yoga tradition the fourth chakra, the Heart Chakra, known in Sanskrit as Anahata, is driven by the principles of transformation and integrity. It is said to bridge the earthly and spiritual aspirations. In this workshop, using energy, art and meditation, we will gently open our hearts to healing and greater love.

Sunday, October 28 Death Café
A Conversation About the Inevitable
Death may be the only thing in life we can truly count on, yet in many modern societies death has been sanitized and hidden from public view, to the point of becoming a taboo subject. But there is a growing “death-positive” movement worldwide whose aim is to subvert this culture of death-denial—simply by lifting the taboo and providing opportunities to have honest and realistic conversations about our shared mortality.
Death Café is open to the public and free of charge. All beliefs and perspectives on death are welcome (as is a sense of humor). There will be a brief introduction, followed by organic group discussion. This is an opportunity to openly address our attitudes, fears, practical concerns, curiosity and questions about death. What do you want to talk about?
If you know anyone who would like to join the conversation please feel free to invite them.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Let’s talk about death.
Death Café has no agenda, and advocates for no particular conclusion, product, or course of action. For more information on what Death Café is all about, visit http://deathcafe.com/
