Art of Egyptian High Alchemy
Sun, Oct 28, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We learn to truly love our experience to change (alchemize) our reality. Egyptian High Alchemy teaches us to be fully present so that we can experience our TRUE full power. “One of the fundamental tasks of any Egyptian alchemist was to strengthen his or her KA (energy body) as this action increased spiritual power. High Alchemy uses many of the same energetic processes for building the KA but adds an important element—the BA (or Celestial Soul). This relationship between the individual and his or her “higher aspects” insures that the powers gained through strengthening of the KA are used for the benefit of both oneself and others."~ Tom Kenyon My approach is multi-faceted: it will include sound healing/vocal toning, movement, guided meditation, breathing exercises, visualization, and the harnessing of my ability to channel ancient alchemical healing energies and messages.

Fancy a therapeutic tantrum? OSHO Dynamic Meditation is a one hour active meditation that, just like passive meditation, can be more powerful when done in a group.

OSHO meditation will help you to drop out of your head and act more from your heart.
Evelyne will guide you through the 5 stages of meditation. This practice is best done with the eyes closed or blindfolded to block out external distractions. The last 30 minutes of the workshop is an optional time for discussion.

Experience a Yoga Nidra with one of the best!
John Vosler is a Senior Teacher at the Amrit Yoga Institute, leading Yoga Nidra Certification programs in many different locations throughout the world. His Yoga Nidra and authentic, optimistic presence are beyond words - please do experience this for yourself. Yoga Nidra is a profound, deceptively simple and scientifically based tool for physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Through the use of specific guided visualizations the practitioner is able to enter a state of deep rest and penetrate the otherwise inaccessible recesses of the mind. This class will include simple yoga postures/asana to prepare the body to be guided into for deep guided relaxation. Systematic relaxation of the body and senses through the use of guided visualization allows the individual practicing Yoga Nidra to move with consciousness into the sub-conscious and unconscious realms and open up the possibility of releasing the ingrained patterns that bind us and cause our suffering.
Yoga Nidra Retreat
Next held on Sat, Nov 17, 2018 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This enrollment runs from Sat Nov 17, 2018 - Sun Nov 18, 2018
Imagine if you will. . .
The setting is serene and peaceful; it's a beautiful space right along the shore in Stratford, CT. You spend your time there deeply immersed in the blissful world of Yoga Nidra...and John Vosler is your guide.
This can be your reality on November 17th and 18th!!
Join the brilliant John Vosler for two days of Yoga Nidra!
Through the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra meditation, you will begin to restore the body, clear the mind, and shift the habitual patterns that keep you from being calm, clear, and balanced.
Yoga Nidra gradually coaxes brainwaves into lower states, much like those during sleep states, to systematically release stored physical, emotional, and mental tensions. Through the process, you can begin to let go of the old beliefs and habits that keep you locked in your past. Allow your emotions to be experienced knowing that you have the capacity to feel them from a grounded and calm inner presence. Carry this new way of being back into all areas of your life.
You will move your body, clear your mind, and create an intention to live from a new perspective — the perspective of knowing your true self.
All are welcome - no experience is necessary.
This retreat takes place at our waterfront training location in Stratford, CT (not at the studio!). This is NOT AN OVERNIGHT, rather two consecutive days.
Cost: $200 if you register by November 15th, $225 thereafter.

Health in Motion: Stress
Sun, Dec 2, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Stress is something everybody feels. We all experience stress in our own unique way but our bodies'' physiologic response is the same. Prolonged reactions to stress can cause detrimental effects in our bodies. Learning how to manage your stress in sustainable and natural ways is one way to avoid chronic illness caused by stress. We will begin with a lecture/Q&A discussion about stress and how it affects the body in many different ways, including both structurally and hormonally. We will then move into a very basic vinyasa style and restorative practice designed to move stress out of the body. After Savasana, we will do a short meditation to further enhance the benefits of the asana segment. Students will be given some tools they can take home and use.
Community Gong Bath
Fri, Dec 21, 2018 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Join Evelyne & other "gongers" for this wonderful experience!
"The vibration of a gong is a powerful method for reducing stress. Known as a Gong Bath, the gong creates an ocean of sound that is profoundly relaxing; a state which activates the parasympathetic nervous system to balance the over-amped, over-taxed sympathetic nervous system. Water has often been used as an analogy for the rippling effect of the gong’s vibrations, partially because our bodies are approximately 70 percent water and water serves to conduct sound waves. Like ripples created by a pebble skipped onto a glassy lake, the gong’s sound gently reverberates over, around and through the entire body to calm, relax and soothe. Typically, the listener’s heart rate slows, blood pressure drops and breath is restored to its natural rhythm. The gong induces a holistic resonance in the body and a spontaneous meditative state in the mind, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness and wholeness." from this online Natural Awakenings article: http://www.nasouthjersey.com/SJER/June-2015/The-Science-Mystery-and-Magic-of-a-Gong-Bath/
