Night of the Ancestors with Sarah Jenks & Becca Piastrelli

October 30th
7:30PM

Halloween isn’t just a costume party. Halloween is a time for deep magic.

 

This powerful night marks the end of the growing season in the northern hemisphere and is a celebration of the thinning of the veils between the worlds. It is a time when our ancestors would honor and connect with those who came before them, and we can do the same. . It is a time to remember where we came from. It is a time to experience the otherworld.

 

On this Night of the Ancestors we will dress in Black and bring an ancestral item to lay on the altar. This may be a symbol of your heritage like a traditional food, a rock from your land, a photo of an ancestor or an item that was passed down to you.

 

We will share folklore about this time of year, hold a ritual and explore how ancestral work can deepen our spiritual practice and help us have that feeling of belonging (to each other, to ourselves and to the Earth) in this age of loneliness.

 

Cost: $30 in person

This All Levels class incorporates an active flow, sprinkled with restorative postures that will not only build heat, strength and balance but also allow you to move mindfully and relax deeply.

 

Vinyasa Flow with Melissa Holm
Thursdays 9:30AM-10:30AM

Have you always wanted to try yoga but felt like you were too much of a beginner? Or maybe you’re a seasoned yogi who wants to actively improve your practice ? This class builds skills and comfort over time so you feel more confident, flexible and centered by the end of the 6 weeks (you can also drop in on any single class). Each week’s focus will change – ranging from beginner’s yoga to more advanced inversions while weaving in mindfulness practices like gratitude and a deeper connection with your inner knowing. You will strengthen all aspects of your mind and body while you learn to synchronize breath with movement. Awaken your strength, energy and flexibility in a fun and beautiful atmosphere.

GUEST WORKSHOP

The Intuitive Awakening with Katie Lynch, LICSW and Michelle Poverman LMHC, EMP

Saturday, October 20th
9AM-6PM

So many of us are content, and mostly happy with our life. So why do we find ourselves anxious, insecure, and indecisive? When did we start giving our power away? It is time to listen to the little voice inside that is nudging you to reach for something more. In this empowering retreat you will:

  • Deepen, expand and strengthen your relationship with your intuition.
  • Identify the areas of your life that you are seeking change, a shift or an awakening.
  • Release the doubt and fear that has been holding you back from fully embracing your inner wisdom and living the life you were truly meant to live.
  • Explore the ways self-care effects vibration and plays a role in the connection between your intuition and nervous system.
  • Learn and practice the strategies and tools that will help increase your ability to tune in to your inner guidance system.
  • Enjoy guided meditations, sound healing, and journaling that will allow you the opportunity to ground, relax and connect to your highest self.
  • Receive a Reiki healing session (by a gorgeous lake) that is intended to release stagnant energy and clear your intuitive “pathways”.
  • Connect with other supportive, empathic women, who are also ready to awaken their true, powerful and intuitive selves.

Cost: $180

Sacred Medicine ~ A Series for Health Empowerment with Sarah Byrne MD

3 Wednesday Evenings. Oct. 24, Nov. 14, Dec. 12
6PM- 8:30PM

“I want to feel BETTER.”  Come and engage with Dr. Sarah Byrne MD, Primary Care Physician and cofounder of Root Family Medicine, on a journey to uncover the root causes of many common symptoms including fatigue, sleep disruption, irritable bowel, aches and pains, hormone imbalance, brain fog and more.  Let’s dig into the physiologic mechanisms and nutrient deficiencies associated with these symptoms, and experience natural approaches to cultivate health resilience in a fun and joyful way!

 

Dr. Byrne will guide you on this adventure through our body systems so YOU can be in charge of your own health story.  We will utilize symptom questionnaires to unearth where your imbalances may lie, harness the wisdom of herbal medicines, sink into guided visualizations, develop our inner health intuition, and bring home simple, daily practices for healing.

 

Through her ten years of experience in Western, Functional and now Herbal medicines, Dr. Byrne has emerged with a mission to revolutionize healthcare by instilling it with more joy, connection with nature, and community. These classes aim to deliver all three of these missing ingredients to you!

 

Session 1 ~ “Under Pressure!”  This session will be centered around HPA axis dysfunction (that’s code for chronic stress) and its impact on your thyroid function, hormones, energy and resilience.

 

Session 2 ~ “It’s All About that Gut, ‘Bout that Gut!”  This session will be centered around the common causes of digestive distress and why your gut’s microbiome influences EVERY aspect of your health.

 

Session 3 ~ “Listen All Y’all It’s a Sabotage!”  This session will be centered around common toxins in our bodies and environments, and how to avoid or coexist with them and how they affect your weight, energy, and hormones.

 

Dr. Byrne believes in making this medicine accessible to everyone.  She will be offering 5 free tickets for each session to those who are not able to afford the fee.  If you would love to attend but have financial hardship, please email rootdrsarah@gmail.com with a blurb about yourself, and Dr. Byrne will provide a code to the first 5 who respond.

 

Dress for comfort, and please bring a journal and a pen.

 

Cost: $99 for one session or $249 for all three

Lunar Love Flow Day Retreat: Autumn with Jenn Faulk

Saturday, October 27th
8AM-6PM

Just before Halloween/Samhain, join Jenn Falk for a one day reprieve to check in with yourself at this halfway point into the Autumn season.

 

Jenn is a mama and lifelong lover of movement who has been teaching yoga for the last 13 years, with the Moon as her main guide. So earlier this year she released her book, Lunar Love Flow: practicing yoga with the Moon.

 

This style of practicing yoga brings acceptance to wherever you are at in your practice and life. It allows for connection to the mysteries of the dance between the Sun, Moon, and Earth…through the way we move and pay attention to ourselves.

 

Throughout our day together at the Moon Lodge, we will make shapes linked to our breath with as much care and compassion that we can.

 

The morning practice will be a more Yang mix of shapes, while the afternoon practice will embody the Yin styles. Lunch will be provided and a copy of Jenn’s book will also be included.

 

There will be time for supportive discussion, some light teaching on how to live with/follow the Moon, and space for Free time to take a walk in nature or rest/meditate. We will close the day with a ritual to honor Samhain and the waning Moon moment.

 

Cost: $170
