To Love, Honor and Cherish Thyself

New and extended class. By popular demand. When we marry we vow to “love, honor and cherish” our spouse, but what about ourselves? Many women are raised to value others before themselves. If you find yourself at a crossroads, perhaps newly separated, divorced, an empty nester, or in the stages of a career change, take this first step to empower yourself, and discover ways to “love, honor and cherish thyself.” Join us as we expand the exploration of meditation and relaxation.

From Stuck to Stoked             NEW

Feeling stuck – like you want to take the plunge, but can’t jump off the diving board? You’re at a juncture where you can choose a new direction or finally pursue a longstanding dream, but something’s stopping you. This course is about self-discovery or rediscovery, and learning to break through fear, procrastination, or comfort zones to sieze the life you want. You’ll make a PACT with yourself: Prioritize your values to choose a goal. Act on your intention. Create change, as you build confidence and skills. Take stock of what works and what doesn’t as you move forward. Get STOKED about what you’ve accomplished and what is yet to come. Ann Schreiber, RN, BSN

Exploring Life After Death

“Death is a doorway, a transition into the inner worlds. Births and Deaths mark the journey of Soul. The translation, or movement, from one stage of experience to another is but a further step on Soul’s journey home to God.”* This course will explore various traditions’ views on the topic of Life After Death. Concepts which will be covered include: near death experiences, karma and reincarnation and contact with deceased friends and relatives. Facilitators will present techniques to help students experience the inner planes of existence for themselves, reinforcing through their OWN experiences that we are all immortal beings, who do not die with the death of our physical bodies. Wouldn’t it be great to know through YOUR OWN experience that there is more to you and your life then your physical body and mind? This course is open to all, regardless of your spiritual affiliation.
