Awakening Consciousness for Children age 7-10

Awakening Consciousness is a 8 month class for children aged 7-10. It is a spiritual class where as a group we explore various spiritual topics through art, discussion, experiential learning, yoga, and journal writing. Each month we will weave in previous topics as well as explore new topics. By the end of the 8 months your child will have a strong and clear understanding of the spiritual topics we covered and will be able to apply all the skills learned in every day life.

Topics covered:
Aura
Chakras
Energy
Reiki
Tarot
Crystals
Angels
Spirit Guides
Animal medicine
Meditation
Gratitude
Intuition
Positive Affirmations
Dream interpretation

Each child will also receive their Reiki 1 certification. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
By the end of this series your child will know how to work with spirit for guidance and healing. He/She will understand the energy body and how to work with crystals and reiki for calming and healing.
He/she will also learn how to use tarot and dreams to have a better understanding of their self and the energies they are working with for growth and understanding. He/she will also come home with spiritual practices that will benefit him/her for the rest of his/her life.

About the teacher
Shanti is a mama to two magical and intuitive kids. She is a licensed teacher, a certified coach, nationally certified counselor, hypnotherapist, and reiki master. She has been working with children as a school teacher and basketball coach for over 15 years. Since 2007 she has been running girls groups and grief groups for children. Since 2015 she has been teaching this class in a more condensed and is so excited to offer a more in depth and expanded version of this series.
As a child Shanti was fortunate to be raised by a father who taught her how to work with energy, connect to spirit, connect with intuition and meditate. This set her on the path as a lifelong seeker of mystical and magical concepts. This class blends two of her greatest loves, children and spirituality. 

Class will run for 8 months at The Hive from 10am-2pm every second Sunday of the month, except for October and April, class will be the first Sunday.

Postnatal Yoga/Women's Circle
Jun

10:00 AM10:00

Postnatal Yoga/Women's Circle

This 4-week workshop combines yoga and a support circle to join women in this powerful and often overwhelming time in their lives. The class starts with 30 minutes of mindful movement and is followed by 45 minutes of gathering to discuss all that can come up as a mother. This circle is aimed at providing you with a community of women who can support each other and develop lasting bonds in this journey of motherhood. Each week of the series will cover a different topic.
YOGA:
Yoga is taught by Leah Skinner, RYT, and RPYT. The short class offers women the opportunity to establish an overall sense of well-being, and learn breathing techniques and postures to help support the body and mind during the transition to motherhood. There will be time for connection with other mothers, as well as deep rest and relaxation. Our classes are open to any woman after doctors release postpartum. The class is a nurturing environment designed to stretch and strengthen muscles, energize the body, soothe aches and pains, relieve stress and anxiety, and overcome the common discomforts from postpartum. No prior yoga experience needed.
CIRCLE:
What does a circle look like?
When in circle we all put our attention on one woman, and we will explore what her experience is like, essentially getting into deep relationship with what is most true and alive for her.
The experience of being seen for who we are is one of the most fullfilling experiences we can have. Being in circle teaches us exactly that­, how to see and celebrate each woman for the uniqueness she brings to the world.
We don’t give advice or try to fix anyone. Rather, we welcome and stay with what is so we can relax into the truth of our experience, feel supported, know we are not alone and allow the experience of this to change us.

Childcare is available in the lobby during class for $5 per child.


ABOUT LEAH:
Leah moved to Bend in 2015 from Austin, TX where she was an environmental scientist. After moving to Bend, Leah moved into exclusively teaching prenatal yoga and birth education. She completed her prenatal yoga training with Yo Mama in Boulder, CO and her birth education teacher training with Yoga Way to Birth in Portland, OR. Leah is the proud mother of two girls. Her desire to work exclusively with mothers came quickly once she found her power becoming a mother herself. In her free time, Leah enjoys running and mountain biking as well as traveling the world with her husband and daughters. Leah teaches pain management techniques, mindfulness, and partner support during pregnancy and birth for Bend Area Birth Information.

ABOUT SHANTI: 
Shanti is a mother of two soulful, wild, silly, energetic children. Before children, she counseled at-risk youth and teen moms. However, the experience of giving birth and becoming a mom radically changed her. From that transition, she discovered her deeper calling, working with mothers.

When she is not with her children she is facilitating retreats, circles and groups, teaching TRE, meditation and chakra healing classes, hosting ceremonies, and working one on one helping women heal.

Shanti is a change maker, an activist, a healer, a community builder, a storyteller, a mother, and a truth teller. She is a nationally certified counselor with a Masters in Counseling. She is a licensed teacher, a certified hypnotherapist, and a Reiki Master. She has trainings in TRE (trauma release exercises), PPD, Advanced Pranic Healing, and trauma.

Everything Shanti does is in service to women, especially mothers. She is deeply passionate about helping women heal so they can be the powerful, loving, soulful individual they long to be and know they are.

 Postnatal Yoga/Women's Circle

Postnatal Yoga/Women's Circle

This 4-week workshop combines yoga and a support circle to join women in this powerful and often overwhelming time in their lives. The class starts with 30 minutes of mindful movement and is followed by 45 minutes of gathering to discuss all that can come up as a mother. This circle is aimed at providing you with a community of women who can support each other and develop lasting bonds in this journey of motherhood. Each week of the series will cover a different topic.
YOGA:
Yoga is taught by Leah Skinner, RYT, and RPYT. The short class offers women the opportunity to establish an overall sense of well-being, and learn breathing techniques and postures to help support the body and mind during the transition to motherhood. There will be time for connection with other mothers, as well as deep rest and relaxation. Our classes are open to any woman after doctors release postpartum. The class is a nurturing environment designed to stretch and strengthen muscles, energize the body, soothe aches and pains, relieve stress and anxiety, and overcome the common discomforts from postpartum. No prior yoga experience needed.
CIRCLE:
What does a circle look like?
When in circle we all put our attention on one woman, and we will explore what her experience is like, essentially getting into deep relationship with what is most true and alive for her.
The experience of being seen for who we are is one of the most fullfilling experiences we can have. Being in circle teaches us exactly that­, how to see and celebrate each woman for the uniqueness she brings to the world.
We don’t give advice or try to fix anyone. Rather, we welcome and stay with what is so we can relax into the truth of our experience, feel supported, know we are not alone and allow the experience of this to change us.

Childcare is available in the lobby during class for $5 per child.

Group TRE (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises)
May
15
7:00 PM19:00

Group TRE (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises)

This is a group class. 
TRE ® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) helps to restore balance to the body by releasing deeply stored tension. This approach will help you to manage and release the effects of stress in your body which in turn positively affects your life.
In TRE we use a series of exercises that are gentle and if needed can be modified for any body type or restriction.

A short description of TRE by Jessica Schaffer from trepdx.com 
"TRE ® activates a self-controlled, muscular tremor reflex which is the body’s natural way of re-establishing balance by discharging energy stored in the nervous system. This tremor reflex originates from the Central Nervous System and moves deep in the core of the body, spreading from the legs upward along the spine, slowly unwinding muscular holding patterns from the sacrum to the cranium. Because it is a body-based release, there is very little emotional or cognitive process that is stirred by the practice. So it is a safe and gentle way for the body to process held stress and trauma without re-triggering uncomfortable memories." 

Please bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable stretchy clothes.

Psychic and Medium Conversations and Practices

Psychic and Medium Conversations and Practices

Psychic and Medium - conversations and practices to expand our natural human abilities

This is an ongoing monthly gathering to help everyone become more psychic and more medium. This is for any woman at any stage of life, we are all gifted souls. 

We will talk about; 
- history of psychic and medium. 
- psychic safety now – issues and fears in our culture here in Central
Oregon, and around the world. 
- physics and physical effects of messages = reaction to interaction. 
- types of energetic messages that we can pick up including; empathic, 
intuitive, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentient, automatic drawing, 
speaking through, channeling, telepathy, etc… 
- discuss energy patterns, what they mean and how we can build our
strongest and brightest energies. 
- aura colors, their meanings and how colors can heal us or take us into more of our natural talents in this life on earth. 
- meditations, astral travel, past lives, old souls and soulmates. 
- auric fields. 
- dream interpretation. 
- using psychic and medium to help with relationships, career choices, medical intuitive, and grief. 
- animal communication and pet psychic
- psychic and mediumship politics, views of economics, equality, 
integration, resources, food, and thinking about future generations. 


We will also set up all sorts of practices and demonstrations, including clarifying our first thoughts, understanding gut feelings, two-minute and longer readings, shared readings, photo readings, drawing, pendulum, cards and energies. Animal communication and pet psychic practice will help us to expand our intuitive confidence and healing nature. If you have other practice suggestions, I will try to work them into class. 


The goal is that we are very interactive with discussion and practice. 
Bring your phone pictures, videos, names of people or pets who have passed
– or that you want to learn more about to this class for us to work with. 
Let's connect spirit energy. 

My name is Lori Baker and I am a practicing psychic advisor with California Psychics. I also work on the side as an animal communicator and spirit
medium. Over five years ago, my blood pressure and pulse kept dropping and I ended up into the emergency room a few times. I started hearing voices in seeing huge aura colors. As a kid, who grew up next to a cemetery and was
used to ghost stories and scary movies and sadly, I retracted from
mediumship because of fear. But now I feel the friendship connection. Life has changed a lot for me, and I am so curious about our civilization here
on earth, and our loved ones, friends and guardian angels residing in heaven or spirit world. I study mediumship online and attend workshops and I practice every day. I try hard to get evidential and validating information that is helpful and healing. I also want to inspire hope. One of my goals is that that we can make our lives more maneuverable, healthier and more fun! I plan to keep learning, traveling and hopefully teaching others to connect and bring out their magic.

Monthly sessions, approximately two hours, $10 per/person

Vibration Healing

7:00 PM19:00

Vibration Healing

This is a monthly healing event open to men and women. It's a unique blend of exercises, meditation, breath work and energy work. 

The first hour will be dedicated to soothing, calming and resetting the nervous system through breath work and TRE (tension release exercises). No experience needed to learn these exercises. It's a safe and gentle exercise for all bodies. Click on this link to learn more about TRE (traumaprevention.com). If you already know TRE please join us, practicing in a group can bring out new powerful/healing expressions in your body. FYI TRE is a trademarked activity that only certified practitioners can teach.

Once our body is in a natural state of calm we will do a guided meditation. Crystals, oils, singing bowls, hands on energy healing using reiki and pranic, and shamanic drumming or hemi-sync music will be used during our time together to help guide and clear the energetic field. 

Time permitting, we will process and talk about what came up during our time together.
