CRYSTAL BOWLS SOUND HEALING, Monthly Friday, March 29, 7:00-8:30 pm
Edie Jemiola, RMT - Everything in and about our bodies resonates to sound. Sound used with intention can shift the energy in and around the body to help reestablish physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Experience the purity and passion of Edie's voice and quartz crystal bowls, which will stimulate healing at a very deep level. Come and soothe your spirit. Bring a mat, pillow and blanket if you wish to lie down. Fee: $20. Register with Edie: 860-933-8145, 48 hours in advance preferred.

George Hoffman - Probably the lesser known of the two major taiji ruler sets to have survived to present day. This ancient Taoist qigong set helps us gather qi to enhance our health and merge our qi with the original qi of the universe to achieve vitality and longevity. This exercise system will enhance dan tian awareness, encourage the movement and transformation of jing, blood and qi and help the practitioner improve their martial arts and healing power and improve health and quality of life. Limit 12 students. Fee: $45. Register with George by April 10 at 860-742-5892.

THE SHAMAN'S TENT Third Fridays, April 19, 6:30-8:15 pm
Patricia Shannon, MS - Step into the shaman’s tent to experience how the Shaman finds clarity in even the most complex situations and challenges. Seeing clearly leads us to live with purpose and honor so we can become Keepers of the Fire for both our inner fire and the fire of the world. Join us as we will explore a spirit inspired topic each evening through shamanic journeying, wisdom sharing, and heartfelt ceremony. Fee: $20/evening. Contact Patricia to register at 860-871-5467 or
