    Participating in BodyWise with Marcia was a light hearted pathway to deep emotional healing for all. Using body movement, improvisation, drama, sound, voice, feeling and mind, we engaged our whole beings in the service of connection to ourselves and others. BodyWise both builds community and nourishes the Self through structured play and interaction. What a gift! Thank you Marcia! (Chandrika L)

  • Multi-Dimensional Sound Journey | 4pm

    June 1, 2024  4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
    Sanctuary

    1st Saturdays - Facilitated by Shira Stone, RScP, LMFT

    Come and experience powerful healing sounds that resonate with your body, mind, and spirit. During this journey, you will be filled with frequencies created by the sounding of alchemical crystal bowls, along with the unique and potent vibrations channeled through Shira’s voice.

    Shira is gifted with an ability to tune into and produce the frequencies needed by a person’s body and emotions at any given moment in order to release constrictions and allow them to align with their truest selves.

    As part of the sound immersion circle, Shira will offer mini healing sessions to three willing participants, benefitting not only those individuals, but also the group as a whole. Many attendees are surprised at the depth of healing they experience, whether or not they are the direct focus of the vocalizations. Truly, we are all connected.

    The immersion closes with a sound bath of crystal bowls and vocalizations. However, this is not your typical sound bath, but rather an opportunity to allow sound and vibration to release energetic blockages, dissolve tensions, and invite alignment with your higher self.

    Who is this for?

    This experience is both for those curious about exploring a different approach to healing, meditation, and spiritual awakening, as well as for those who want to deepen their spiritual/emotional growth. It is for anyone dreaming of the sounds of angels and spirit guides come to uplift, heal, and illuminate their path.

    What you’ll take away from this experience

    While each experience is unique, many participants leave with a deep sense of peace, integration, and a feeling of being centered and uplifted

    Cost: $20

    "Life After Life" by Raymond A. Moody JR., M.D.

    Raymond Moody is the "father" of the modern NDE (Near Death Experience) movement, and his pioneering work Life After Life transformed the world, revolutionizing the way we think about death and what lies beyond. Originally published in 1975, it is the groundbreaking study of one hundred people who experienced "clinical death" and were revived, and who tell, in their own words, what lies beyond death. A smash bestseller that has sold more than thirteen million copies around the globe, Life After Life introduced us to concepts--including the bright light, the tunnel, the presence of loved ones waiting on the other side--that have become cultural memes today, and paved the way for modern bestsellers by Eben Alexander, Todd Burpo, Mary Neal, and Betty Eadie that have shaped countless readers notions about the end life and the meaning of death.

  • Documentary Screening: "Conversations with Gay Elders" | 7pm

    June 6, 2024  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
    Sanctuary

    CONVERSATIONS WITH GAY ELDERS is a series of 6 in-depth interviews and conversational documentaries focused on gay men whose journeys of self-discovery precede the era of Stonewall and Gay Liberation. The conversations explore how these men navigated being “different” long before there was any social or political context for a positive LGBT self-image. CONVERSATIONS WITH GAY ELDERS was a cross-generational collaboration in which producer/ director David Weissman (then in his early 60s) worked in partnership with gay men in their 20s and 30s as editors to profile gay men in their 70s and 80s.

    Our voices will be attuned by Source to the frequencies of healing of individuals in our group. We will receive these frequencies ourselves as well as direct this healing energy into the world. Through our active participation in the healing transformation, we send waves of positivity, love, and coherence to the collective consciousness.

    Who is this for?

    This experience is for anyone curious about exploring participatory sound healing as a different approach to healing and spiritual awakening.

    Shira’s sounds are guided by those of angels and spirit guides that assist individuals in uplifting, healing, and illuminating their path. The vocal energy of the group, through its harmonies and vibrations, offer great alignment between yourself and community

    All voices are welcomed as a valuable and cherished member of the healing energy that we cocreate.

    What you’ll take away from this experience

    Using sound and spiritual vibrations in this manner often shifts people into bringing deeper harmony into their being and a coherence back into their bodies and emotions. Individuals directly experiencing this healing come into greater alignment with their feelings and body.

    "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn

    "Teacher Seeks Pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world." Apply in person. It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

    So begins an utterly unique and captivating novel. It is the story of a man who embarks on a highly provocative intellectual adventure with a gorilla--a journey of the mind and spirit that changes forever the way he sees the world and humankind's place in it. In Ishmael, which received the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship for the best work of fiction offering positive solutions to global problems, Daniel Quinn parses humanity's origins and its relationship with nature, in search of an answer to this challenging question: How can we save the world from ourselves?

    1st & 3rd Tuesdays @ 7pm

    "Life After Life" by Raymond A. Moody JR., M.D.

    Raymond Moody is the "father" of the modern NDE (Near Death Experience) movement, and his pioneering work Life After Life transformed the world, revolutionizing the way we think about death and what lies beyond. Originally published in 1975, it is the groundbreaking study of one hundred people who experienced "clinical death" and were revived, and who tell, in their own words, what lies beyond death. A smash bestseller that has sold more than thirteen million copies around the globe, Life After Life introduced us to concepts--including the bright light, the tunnel, the presence of loved ones waiting on the other side--that have become cultural memes today, and paved the way for modern bestsellers by Eben Alexander, Todd Burpo, Mary Neal, and Betty Eadie that have shaped countless readers notions about the end life and the meaning of death.

    "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn

    "Teacher Seeks Pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world." Apply in person. It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

    So begins an utterly unique and captivating novel. It is the story of a man who embarks on a highly provocative intellectual adventure with a gorilla--a journey of the mind and spirit that changes forever the way he sees the world and humankind's place in it. In Ishmael, which received the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship for the best work of fiction offering positive solutions to global problems, Daniel Quinn parses humanity's origins and its relationship with nature, in search of an answer to this challenging question: How can we save the world from ourselves?

  • Multi-Dimensional Sound Journey | 4pm

    June 1, 2024  4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
    Sanctuary

    1st Saturdays - Facilitated by Shira Stone, RScP, LMFT

    Come and experience powerful healing sounds that resonate with your body, mind, and spirit. During this journey, you will be filled with frequencies created by the sounding of alchemical crystal bowls, along with the unique and potent vibrations channeled through Shira’s voice.

    Shira is gifted with an ability to tune into and produce the frequencies needed by a person’s body and emotions at any given moment in order to release constrictions and allow them to align with their truest selves.

    As part of the sound immersion circle, Shira will offer mini healing sessions to three willing participants, benefitting not only those individuals, but also the group as a whole. Many attendees are surprised at the depth of healing they experience, whether or not they are the direct focus of the vocalizations. Truly, we are all connected.

    The immersion closes with a sound bath of crystal bowls and vocalizations. However, this is not your typical sound bath, but rather an opportunity to allow sound and vibration to release energetic blockages, dissolve tensions, and invite alignment with your higher self.

    Who is this for?

    This experience is both for those curious about exploring a different approach to healing, meditation, and spiritual awakening, as well as for those who want to deepen their spiritual/emotional growth. It is for anyone dreaming of the sounds of angels and spirit guides come to uplift, heal, and illuminate their path.

    What you’ll take away from this experience

    While each experience is unique, many participants leave with a deep sense of peace, integration, and a feeling of being centered and uplifted

    Cost: $20

    "Life After Life" by Raymond A. Moody JR., M.D.

    Raymond Moody is the "father" of the modern NDE (Near Death Experience) movement, and his pioneering work Life After Life transformed the world, revolutionizing the way we think about death and what lies beyond. Originally published in 1975, it is the groundbreaking study of one hundred people who experienced "clinical death" and were revived, and who tell, in their own words, what lies beyond death. A smash bestseller that has sold more than thirteen million copies around the globe, Life After Life introduced us to concepts--including the bright light, the tunnel, the presence of loved ones waiting on the other side--that have become cultural memes today, and paved the way for modern bestsellers by Eben Alexander, Todd Burpo, Mary Neal, and Betty Eadie that have shaped countless readers notions about the end life and the meaning of death.

    Sanctuary

    CONVERSATIONS WITH GAY ELDERS is a series of 6 in-depth interviews and conversational documentaries focused on gay men whose journeys of self-discovery precede the era of Stonewall and Gay Liberation. The conversations explore how these men navigated being “different” long before there was any social or political context for a positive LGBT self-image. CONVERSATIONS WITH GAY ELDERS was a cross-generational collaboration in which producer/ director David Weissman (then in his early 60s) worked in partnership with gay men in their 20s and 30s as editors to profile gay men in their 70s and 80s.

    "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn

    "Teacher Seeks Pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world." Apply in person. It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

    So begins an utterly unique and captivating novel. It is the story of a man who embarks on a highly provocative intellectual adventure with a gorilla--a journey of the mind and spirit that changes forever the way he sees the world and humankind's place in it. In Ishmael, which received the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship for the best work of fiction offering positive solutions to global problems, Daniel Quinn parses humanity's origins and its relationship with nature, in search of an answer to this challenging question: How can we save the world from ourselves?

    "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn

    "Teacher Seeks Pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world." Apply in person. It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

    So begins an utterly unique and captivating novel. It is the story of a man who embarks on a highly provocative intellectual adventure with a gorilla--a journey of the mind and spirit that changes forever the way he sees the world and humankind's place in it. In Ishmael, which received the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship for the best work of fiction offering positive solutions to global problems, Daniel Quinn parses humanity's origins and its relationship with nature, in search of an answer to this challenging question: How can we save the world from ourselves?

BodyWise both builds community and nourishes the Self through structured play and interaction. What a gift! Thank you Marcia! (Chandrika L)
