Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing which can provide you, your family and your clients with deep relaxation and stress management, and deepen healing and therapeutic experiences.  These courses will combine reading, lecture, discussion, reflection, and hands-on experience. These courses are taught per the guidelines of The International Center of Reiki Training (ICRT). All manuals and materials are ICRT approved. 


Each course is eight hours in length and will break for a one hour lunch. This course will discuss what Reiki is, the history of Reiki, the history of the International Center for Reiki Training, how the attunement process works, how Reiki works, and explain and demonstrate the Japanese Reiki Techniques as taught by Dr. Usui.  Students will receive their attunement, have time for reflection and then begin practicing self-healing and the Reiki techniques. Students will review the manual and healing guide together. The course will conclude with students demonstrating they have acquired an understanding of Reiki through verbal discussion and demonstration.

Poetry Slam at OM!
Saturday • March 8 • 7:30pm • $7
Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the Slam • Sign up BEFORE 7:30; signup is limited

What is a Poetry Slam?

It's competition poetry; meaning humor, politics, enlightenment, sex, entertainment masquerading as literature, literature masquerading as entertainment. Poets will read, then judges will flash Olympic-style scoring to determine who goes on to the next round until there's just one poet left standing as the champion. In truth, everyone who adds to the evening should be considered a winner, but since we only have one Golden Monkey trophy, we have to figure out some way to give it out. It's a lot of fun! 

Hosted by Matt Mason. Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the featured performer and 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. 


Shamanic Teaching / Journeying Experience 
with Brent Bowyer 
(4  month course meets 1x a month)
Wednesdays •March 19, April 16, May 21, June 18 •7:30pm • $100 ADV / $125 no ADV
(4 month course MUST RSVP)  
A practical sacred drumming session intended to bring us into harmonic resonance with shamanic spirit and wisdoms. (Please bring your drums and rattles, if you have, if not don't worry you can still participate fully in the sacred space which will be generated).  

In this new era we are heading for a quantum leap - from Homo Sapiens to Homo Luminous.  What exactly does this mean? It means that we as a species are heading towards a place of vision, of ability, which will perceive the vibrations and light that make up the physical world, at a much finer and higher level.

We will be continuing this course over 6 months and will explore each month, principles and practical exercises to apply and follow, a progressive journey towards the new intended Homo Luminous. It will bring you to trust your own intuitions and heart, to forego the impositions of external authoritative approaches, rebalance the Feminine within, via the mode of Lao Tzu's statement " Know the Yang, but stick to the Yin." 
We will follow the practical Wisdoms, Power and Grace of the Earthkeepers as presented by Dr Alberto Villoldo and will grow a nurturing, supportive environment, honoring Mother Earth, each other and a commitment to the future generations of all sentient beings.

Ayurveda is a system of healing that has its roots in ancient India, Tibet and Nepal

Ayuh means life and veda means wisdom; Ayurveda literally means the wisdom of life. 
According to Ayurveda every individual is a microcosm of the cosmos; 
the outer life and the inner life are reflections of one another.

We experience health and joy when we understand and align with both our individual constitutions as well as the natural rhythms of nature. Ayurveda gives us a framework through which to understand the needs of the body and psyche in the form of the Subtle Elements (earth, water, fire, air, space) and the Doshas(vata, pitta, kapha).
