Music & Other Gems Jan 8 – 12, 2018 – What’s Under the Blanket? + Everyday Healing

The playlists from the week are below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Put the music we dance together with other pieces that lift you up, calm you, and challenge you!

But first, here are a couple of things I know you want to know about:

Everyday Self-Healing at Buck Mountain on Fri, Jan 12, 6-715pm
Join Susan McCulley and Becky Trexler for an evening of movement that offers simple, practical ways of taking care of ourselves even in the bleak mid-winter.
Coming to this class does something good for you and something good for our community!

All donations for this class for the evening will support a new grassroots organization working to bring healing to Charlottesville:
“Beloved Community Charlottesville” was created by a member of the Charlottesville Friends Meeting to provide resources and opportunities to people interested in creating social change, starting with a city-wide film viewing and dialogue event of the documentary I’m Not Racist… Am I? A free public screening of this 90-minute documentary followed by community discussion with the director/producer will be offered at The Paramount, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. (Reserve your free ticket at the Paramount Theater web site.)

All are welcome. Bring a friend!

A week of Soup and Soulful Meditations with Cecily Armstrong
Cecily Armstrong (http://cecilyarmstrong.com/) offers coaching and nutrition counseling and in general is an amazing teacher and guide. I’ve been working with her for the past couple of months and am delighted with what she offers. She is generously giving the gift of a FREE week of recipes and meditations to start your year right. I hope you’ll take this opportunity to work with her and get a literal and figurative taste of the powerful work she does. You can find the information about her offer here. https://us3.campaign-archive.com/?u=2c7bb87373ca3a78127a2f0dd&id=13a681291e

8-week Mindful Self Compassion class with Laura DeVault
We live in a world full of environmental challenges, political upheaval, and divisive rhetoric. Our self-worth can become dependent upon our latest success or failure, adding another layer of stress to our lives. Mindful self-compassion takes a different approach. When we turn toward our suffering with compassion, we can learn to be more peaceful in our inner world, as well as with our outer landscape.

In this course, we’ll engage in practices that will allow participants to have a felt sense of self compassion, as well as to take home practical tools for evoking self-compassion in daily life.

This 8-week class begins on Sunday, January 14, & continues through March 4, from 2 – 5 PM. It will include a 1/2 day retreat on Sunday, February 18, from 9 AM – 1 PM. Instructors Laura DeVault and Anna Vanhoy have both completed the Mindful Self-Compassion teacher training through the UCSD Center for Mindful Self Compassion. Contact Maureen Otten at 434-220-4686 to register, or contact either Laura or Anna for more information. Registration fee: $400.

Freedom to Move Workshop with Life Coach Heidi Shaner ~ Saturday, January 27, 2-5pm
Do you wish you could DANCE WITHOUT INHIBITION like you dance when you’re alone? YOU CAN! Join Edwin Roa, founder of Zabor Dance and Heidi Shaner, Strategic Intervention Life Coach, for an intensive workshop.

You’ve set your new year’s resolution so why not include EMOTIONAL WEIGHT LOSS? Yes! We’re integrating the best of both worlds: physical and emotional for an amazing experience of creativity and freedom.

What’s holding you back from moving your feet, hips, and shoulders freely? What obstacles prevent you from experiencing joy in your body?

We’ll explore the mind/body connection, how obstacles are created, what we really want, and how we can shift resistance through movement and discussion. We’ll create and perform a group dance to celebrate in this 3 hour workshop.

Join us for this self care, self love exploration and find freedom, joy, and connection in movement.

All are welcome, open to everyone.

Get out of your own way! Unleash your soul!
