8 Healing Sounds QiGong with Sarah Brandt     
Wednesdays • Thru October 16, 2013 • 10-11am • $56 • (Continuation of 4wk class)

The practice of the 8 Healing Sounds and coordinated movements combine:
sound, vibration, movement, breath, and visualization for balancing the mind and body.

In the Taoist tradition, this practice enhances one’s overall well-being and works directly upon particular organs, emotions and energy channels in the body.

These Ancient Taoist Healing practices
will enable you to transform the effects of emotions and daily stress through sound and movement. There is an old saying, “Our ‘issues’ reflect in our tissues.” Strong emotions and high stress require extra energy and have an effect on the body’s immunity and organs, often accelerating the aging process. This class will review the five major organs and their associated emotions, colors, sounds & elements—in accordance with the Chinese 5 Element Theory. The 8 Healing Sounds & Movements is a practice for self-healing and rejuvenation. Discover how to integrate sound with movement to maintain a life of wellness and harmony!

OM Poetry Slam - Aromas Coffeehouse (Slam not at OM this month)
1033 Jones in Old Market . . . very very close to OM!  
Saturday • October 12 • 7:30pm • $7

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.
