Sending Love and Light to you

during this sizzling summer. I hope you are staying cool and hydrated.

This month's lovely artwork is aptly called "Light Dance" (

Recently, I was divinely inspired to create a video dance tribute to honour the passing of a dear friend's mother. I woke up at 5:30 am, and went downstairs to set up my tripod and iPhone camera. First I meditated, and then I danced, capturing the experience on film. God/dess bless YouTube for tutorials on editing, since it was my first attempt and I needed lessons!

I was surprised and touched by the outpouring of support that came back to me after I published this little film on FaceBook. It's a mix of dance, yoga, qigong, Reiki, healing intention...and a large dose of LOVE. Years ago I did a lot of this in churches. In those days I called it "liturgical dance", "dance prayer" and "movement prayer". It is something very near and dear to my heart.

On Wednesday August 10, from 7-9pm I am offering an introduction to this method of sacred movement. You can expect meditation, physical warmups, learning one or two of the phrases from the video, and the opportunity to discover some signature movement for yourself. This class is open to men and women, and tuition is $20. Please email me to reserve your spot, and to ask any questions. The location is 21 Nassau St. in the Community Room.

If you haven't seen the video yet, here is a link. It is dedicated to the memory of Doreen's Splawinski, with special love to her daughter (and my dear friend) Ananda Xenia Shakti.

A lighter offering during the summer. Full schedule will resume Sept. 15.

A combination of breath, intention and movement to promote inner and outer radiance. An excellent way to nourish our vital life energy (called qi and prana).

Chakra Nidra

QiGong and Yoga Nidra together, a heavenly combination. We continue to explore, heal and balance our chakras in these sessions. Playing qigong opens up the flow in our physical and subtle channels, so that when we lie down for the guided meditation afterwards, we are ready to melt into a deep healing zone.

Private yoga, Reiki sessions, Oracle and Tarot readings
available on request. Please email
