Hosted by Matt Mason. Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the slam; sign up BEFORE 7:30 as signup is limited and will only be allowed after 7:30 if less than 8 are in the slam.

This month's slam features a performance by Todd Robinson!


Aug. 14 - Crystal Healing Through the Chakras
with Life Coach, Master Herbalist, & Biopulsar™ Analyst Chanell Jaramillo
2-6pm • $55 • 3 CEUs

Crystals are powerful tools technology has been harnessing to create many of the communication advancements we have today, but we can also benefit from their power on a natural and therapeutic level. Our intricately webbed biofield has the innate ability to resonate and interact with these crystals. Crystals act like laser beams - cutting, drawing, and collecting energy from our auric field.

There are hundreds of crystals embedded within the earth; each carries special properties, holds specific intentions, and has the power to cure the energy fields within each of us. If you have been curious about crystal therapy and desire the knowledge to apply crystal therapy in your home or practice, join Chanell in discovering the healing power of crystals. This class will explore 14-21 crystals most commonly used in energy healing, and participants will learn how to perform a basic crystal therapy session. Fee includes handouts and a beginner’s crystal therapy set.

10:30am-12:30pm • $25
Call OM to RSVP!


Ancient Taoist healing practices offer a simple and practical way of cultivating harmony in mind, body and spirit.

This class will offer an experience into the 8 Healing Sounds. Each of the 8 Sounds resonates with an internal organ and the emotion affiliated with each organ. Be prepared to bring balance to your entire being by learning how to express the sounds vocally while simultaneously performing a movement that is paired with each sound.

This class will require moderate physical participation: seated meditation, stretching & warm-ups, and prolonged standing while learning the movements. Transform yourself by increasing
the quality of your life force with this profound practice!

Aug. 28 - Body Memory Recall Talk & Book Signing
with Jonathan Tripodi
4-6pm • $FREE
Call OM to RSVP!


From his awakening to body memory in Part I to the fascinating science and case studies in Part II, Jonathan Tripodi illuminates a healing path that is missed in traditional medicine and therapy that ultimately transforms body memory and accumulated stress, which in turn enables individuals to manifest positive changes in their body and life that were previously considered impossible. Uncover the secrets of body memory and how one’s unconscious hold on the past is the invisible source of pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and repetitive life experiences.

Aug. 29-31: Intro to Body Memory
with Jonathan Tripodi
21 NCTMB/19.5 Nebraska State Contact Hours

Learn Jonathan Tripodi's Body Memory Recall approach!

Body Memory Recall is a form of therapeutic bodywork that uniquely integrates myofascial release, cranial sacral therapy, visceral myofascial release, unwinding, energy work, and therapeutic dialogue into one comprehensive approach for the treatment and transformation of body memory.

In this seminar, you will learn the body memory hands-on protocol, which incorporates listening skills, therapeutic presence, and dynamic applications of touch from light to deep that dissolves body armor, releases unconscious and outdated protective responses, clears accumulated stress and memory, and provides the opportunity to effectively create new, healthier biological programming.

You will also learn the Body Memory Model, which incorporates the latest breakthroughs in biophysics - describing human anatomy as medium for the communication of life, which can suppress the energy of one's thoughts, emotions, and life experiences, and later release it to heal, grow, and evolve.

Introduction to BMR will provide you with a foundation of knowledge and hands-on skills that will enable you to facilitate the body's innate power to transform itself and achieve lasting change. All BMR seminars emphasize experiential learning through one-on-one practice sessions intimately supervised by experienced instructors who provide you with feedback on all learned techniques.

For almost two decades, Jonathan Tripodi has explored body memory and its relationship to chronic pain, stress, illness, and behavior. He has developed and refined his Body Memory Recall approach into an innovative mind-body therapy that has supported thousands of individuals to experience renewed states of health, vitality, and function. His approach to therapeutic bodywork supports one's innate ability to release accumulated stress from past experiences, and in doing so, enables the body to resolve pain and stress conditions while providing individuals with freedom from the limitations of past programming.

Currently, Jonathan devotes his time and energy entirely to educating the public and healthcare professionals about the body memory phenomenon and his unique treatment approach. He teaches the BMR approach nationwide and is the author of Freedom from Body Memory - Awaken the Courage to Let Go of the Past. His book is the first of its kind in that it provides his personal awakening to body memory in addition to the current scientific, historical, and clinical evidence of the body memory phenomenon.
