Instructor: Machael Carlson
Suggested Love Donation $15

Crystal grids can sometimes be more powerful than using a single crystal for an intended goal. Crystal grids are made by the placement of specific stones in a geometric pattern for the specific purpose of directing energy toward a goal. The stones or crystals are then charged by your intention and energy. Let's have some fun, and create some FABULOUS grids for your personal use! If you have special crystals or gemstones you would like to use in the grid please bring them to class with you!

Presented by Machael Carlson
Suggested Love donation: $15.00

June is the Month of Love! We most often give love to others in the ways we prefer to receive love. While all the Love Languages
should be a part of your relationships, people often have dominant preferences in the way they receive and give love. This can unknowingly cause a “disconnect” when the giver and recipient have different love languages because acts go unnoticed, underappreciated, or miss the mark completely.

Tantra Yoga Image10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Instructor: Dr. Ronald K. Porter
Suggested Love Donation: $15.00

In the West, Tantra is often understood as heightened sexual practices. This simplistic definition misses the deeper definition of Tantra: the balancing of male and female energies in the body to enhance consciousness, creativity, and feeling. Poet Audre Lorde called “the erotic,” the ability to tap into and focus our creative forces, not just for the purposes of sex, but for the enhancement of our overall creative lives and communities.

Join Dr. Ronald K. Porter for an exploration of Tantra and a Yoga practice meant to allow you to tap into your creative abilities and enhance your joy.
Please bring a mat if you have one.

Bring your own Tarot cards to class! Don't have tarot cards? A deck may be purchased at Miracles Bookstore.

A little sacred play is good for the soul, and the more you interact with the tarot cards the more you will begin to their symbolism in your surroundings and in yourself. By using the cards in fun ways, you’ll learn their meanings and how their energies influence your world.
