Chakra Healing Series

8 weeks $150

The Chakra Healing Series is an 8 week experiential/healing class that meets once a week. Each week will delve into all the information on one chakra, starting at the base of the spine and ending at the crown of the head, 7 chakras in all. The class is equal parts teaching, experiential learning, creativity exploration, ceremony, movement, and circle discussion.

Participants will learn the energy, thought patterns, and emotional properties of each chakra. Discussions will be deep and personal. I will gently encourage vulnerability to allow participants' wounds to be shown in order to shift the energy of the wound and heal.

Participants will be taught how to identify when the chakra is off balance and how to bring the chakra back to balance through energy healing techniques, movement, oils, crystals, journal exercises, and meditation. We will not only explore the chakra, but also the healing properties of the crystals and oils that are related to each chakra.

Participants will receive a crystal that corresponds to the chakra we learned about as well as a packet of notes that will further their learning each week.

This is by far my favorite class I teach and I am beyond excited to offer it again.

Limited to 12 women.

Awakening Consciousness for Children

8 Months

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.

Meditation Classes for Women

60 MINUTES $10

With school starting, it's important to take an hour out of your day to re-center, calm your nervous system, and connect to your wisdom. Learn different meditation techniques while you receive a little energy work, crystal bowl healing, and tuning fork healing. Different meditation techniques will be explored each time we meet, and we will learn about and integrate different mudras. Wear comfortable clothes and bring your water.

Tension/Trauma Release Exercises (TRE)

60 MINUTES $15 

Tension/Trauma Release exercises are a set of guided exercises developed by Dr. David Berceli. These exercises are a gentle and effective way to release deeply held tension that has accumulated in the body due to everyday life demands, prolonged or immediate stress, or traumatic life experiences.

Using a series of gentle exercises, TRE activates a muscular tremor reflex which is the body’s natural way of re-establishing balance by discharging energy stored in the nervous system. It is a body-based release originating from the brain stem, therefore there is little or no emotional or cognitive process activated or stirred by this practice. TRE will not trigger any traumatic memories of feelings. It is safe practice for all body types and can be modified if needed.  Sessions are between 1 and 1.5 hours.  For more information on TRE, visit www.treforall.org.

A Tension/Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) group session is $10 cash or $15 credit/debit per participant.

Donation for those who have already taken a TRE class.
