Upcoming Workshops



3 Month Medicine Circle Series

San Rafael - 11 Mar 2017 to 13 May 2017
Sylvie Minot

We are offering a three-month Medicine Circle Series in San Rafael, starting in March. Each Saturday workshop will be five hours long, and the group will remain the same throughout the three months so we can learn and grow together. Our Medicine Circle workshops weave ritual, community, movement, sounds and prayer, allowing us to reconnect with Spirit. We pray, for ourselves, for others and for the greater whole. Dance and presence are our offerings. Especially in a time like this, being together in this sacred way is our medicine. Because there is limited space in this workshop, we encourage you to apply now if you are interested. We hope you'll join us!

Empower This!

The world appears to be in a state of Chaos. Left unchecked, this chaos has the capacity to run our lives, leaving a path of pain and suffering with a sense of separation. Empower This! takes a different approach. We begin where we are and move away from seeing 'that' as the enemy, but rather the starting point for love, compassion and abundance. By starting right where we are, it is possible to embrace  our true power and compassion on the spot. In doing so, we enter into a new world full of love and possibilities. 


This workshop will incorporate 5Rhythms® Movement Mediation with Certified teacher and Licensed Marriage, Family Therapist Christina Graham-Smith and Dr. Phil Zentner, Medical Director of Oncology, providing a series of movement, meditation, live drumming, didactic exercises and time to process your experience together. Dr. Zentner has over forty years of experience in the meditative arts and is a Certified Mindfulness facilitator from UCLA Mindfulness Awareness Research Center (MARC).
