Taichi and its Application in Self-Healing with Fukui Yang & Rick Barrett – May 3, 7:30-9:30pm
Taijiquan is usually taught from the outside in: you learn the choreography, practice for years, and gradually come to understand what’s going on inside. In this seminar, three teachers/healers with over 120 years of martial arts/clinical experience teach it from the inside out, showing not just how to feel the qi, but what to do with it. Fukui Yang and Rick Barrett share their extensive knowledge and experience in a loving and understandable way, and show you how to get the most out of your Taijiquan practice. Master Yang brings the unbroken tradition of authentic Chinese martial arts and philosophy. Rick Barrett takes us “through the Western Gate” to translate esoteric principles into teachable, experiential abilities.
Sheng Zhen Qigong Teacher Training with Junfeng Li – May 19, 7:30pm

“One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes.” – Dr. Mitchell Gaynor
Music lifts our spirits and transports us to another dimension, place or time. Music also holds the key to remembering our origin, where we came from. Music reconnects us to Source/Divinity. Our spirit, regardless of beliefs, nationality, time or space, recognizes sound as the gateway to the infinite. Thus music is the universal language.
In this workshop, learn the science behind both Crystal Singing Bowls and Himalayan Singing Bowls. You will not only learn why they are healing tools, but will learn how to play them as well to use for yourself and others. Sample/Practice Healing techniques will be taught.
July 14th, 2 – 5:30pm, Tuition $30
Join Anne Magdalene as she walks participants through a variety of spiritual healing techniques, offering insight and guidance with Spirit, explaining how these techniques can assist one in working through the spiritual wounds we have brought with us to this lifetime, and the wounds we have created in this current lifetime. Anne will work with the group on specific areas in their lives, with which they are seeking change, whether it is relationships, career, life’s purpose, or physical health.
This is an interactive workshop, in that participants will be afforded sacred space to share, and Anne will give feedback as to how these challenges came to be, and dig deeper with the participants as to what actions they are ready and willing to make.
At the completion of the workshop, participants will feel inspired to implement these skills into their daily lives, and watch their lives begin to change, as their souls ascend to new heights.
If you are ready to walk into the future you have always dreamed of, then this is the workshop for you!
July 15th, 2-4:00pm, Tuition $30
What exactly is ‘spirituality’ and what does it mean to be a ‘spiritual’ person? Although this is a complicated issue, almost any spiritual seeker would probably agree that spiritual experiences involve feelings of connection or love that flow inwards and outwards – towards oneself and others, towards ‘God,’ or towards the ‘universe’ as a whole.
This workshop will show and suggest that the force of love arises directly from the ‘homeostatic drive,’ the core biological force within us that operates in all of our cells, organs, and tissues, and that seeks to achieve and sustain states of homeostasis, or equilibrium, at all levels. Although the homeostatic drive is the fundamental biological force within us, at higher levels of awareness it gives rise to a spiritual force of enormous power – the force of love and self-love, the force that allows us to be connected to the ‘Tao,’ or the ‘flow’ of life, and the force that appears to represent what people have long felt and experienced as ‘God.’
