When I woke up this morning, I was in a state of malaise with no seeming reason to be in that feeling of lethargy and unrest. Everything in my life is going well right now so wouldn't it make sense that I would be completely satisfied? It made me think of the time before I quit my corporate job 23 years ago (although the feeling then was much deeper and more depressing!) when I had everything that society had told me I should have. But there still was/is something missing!
After I did my yoga today and prepared for work, I realized that I have been so busy "doing" lately that I have forgotten to just be. Sitting alone in my own being, connecting with my Higher Power, checking in with my feelings, giving thanks - I have not taken the time to get back to the silence. I fell back into the "production" mentality, the belief that work is the most important aspect of life - just like 23 years ago. It showed me how easy it is to fall back into old patterns if we are not aware of our feelings. And it reminded me that, in order to get my attention back then, the Universe found it necessary for a softball to slam me in the head!
Today I'm thankful for the malaise that reminded me to take time to just be. No tv, no internet, no housework, no practicing music - just sit and be if even for just 15 minutes a day. I'm not willing to have another Cosmic Wake-Up Call! Ahhh, that feels better!

Six Thursday Evenings Beginning March 14
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Fee: $125
Learn the basics of astrology: all the planets (asteroids too!) signs and houses, using your own natal chart. This is an interactive class, where questions and feedback are welcome. This is your chance to learn how all those general beginning astrology concepts apply to you personally. Please make your birth data available and a natal chart will be provided.
If you've been studying the basic concepts of astrology and want to learn how to put all the pieces together, then this is your chance. We'll be covering the cohesive interpretation of the natal chart that includes the "signature" or theme, karma, dharma and life direction. Once you have a more in-depth understanding of your chart we'll take a look at synastry or relationship astrology - the science of how two charts work together. Please make your birth data available and a chart will be provided.
If you are looking to open up to the higher frequencies of love, support unity, and expansion, these classes are for you! This is your opportunity to allow old wounds to fall away in a space of total Divine Love and open to receiving the total love and abundance that the Universe has to offer.
In whatever areas you're seeking balance resolution, improvement and higher vibrational resonance, LOVE is the answer, and this class is a Fully Awakened Access Point to that Energy!
I believe that stress, fear, poverty, dis-ease, and lack, are all caused by a disconnect from who you truly are and all you truly know. These vibrations cause us to plug into a world of illusion and fear.
Go beyond the mind and experience a world of limitless possibilities, potentials, and experiences. These guided journeys, mantras, and mantrams empower you to function from a position of true Power and true Knowing.
You can arrive any time after 9:30am. We will be focusing on MANIFESTINGYOUR DREAM. Please park all the way up to my garage-2 abreast. Bring a blanket or sheet(if you wish) to lie down on and allow the energy to flow through your whole body.
THINK ABOUT ALL THAT YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR.

After having met Mary Bruck and having her present a workshop at our last open house, I just knew we had to have her give a series of classes at Free Spirit! She has a unique understanding of eastern and western health. Mary is certified as an Ayurvedic natural health practitioner, yoga instructor with advanced training in Ayurvedic yoga and as a panchakarma technician. Her training also includes pranic healing with special focus in working with cancer patients. I encourage you to join me in her classes!
Part I - Get a Better Understanding of Your Doshic Imbalance and Basic Constitution - Will cover the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas. You will get a better understanding of your basic constitution (prakruti) and your imbalance (vikruti). We will go thru a self-answered inventory, a tongue diagnosis, and a pulse diagnosis to assess your current imbalance and your basic constitution. Ayurveda believes that the roots of all diseases start in the digestive tract and in the mind, so we use a dual approach to all health issues.
Part II - Ama, Agni & Prana & Tools of Ayurveda - There is physical ama (toxins) and psychological ama, how to recognize it and how to reduce it. What is agni, and how does it relate ama? Prana, our vital life fore energy, comes from many sources, meditation, intention, sleep, breath, water, and food. Become familiar with some of the basic tools in Ayurveda to reduce ama and increase prana. We will discuss tongue scraping, neti pot usage, nasyas (nasal oils), abhyanga, breath practices.
Part III - It's all about the Food Baby!! Food becomes our medicine in Ayurveda. We will cover the 6 tastes in Ayurveda and how different foods incorporate those 6 tastes. How do spices bring our agni into balance. Learn how to make food choices that heal you and bring you back into harmony with your basic constitution. We will sample: ghee, rice and other grains, dahl (split beans), spices, veggies, fruit, and lassies, teas. Recipes for lassies, and kitchari will be provided.
In this course students will be challenged to learn the basics of aromatherapy and the use of essential oils. Students will have the opportunity to explore creating products with EOs. Application for self use and use by others will be studied and students will be able to demonstrate benefits as well as precautions.
You will be working with the finest therapeutic essential oils available. Rose and Polly bring their many years of experience and knowledge to make this the best essential oils class you will ever attend!

Chakra One Class (First in a 7 Part Series)
led by Rose Koremenos and Diane Bloom
Wednesday, April 10 6:30 - 8:30
Fee - $35.00
This series is for individuals who are tired of feeling low energy, are ill or experiencing symptoms of disease, and those who are looking to promote health and well-being for themselves or others.
Deficiencies or blockages in the chakra system lead to imbalances which over time create symptoms and dis-ease. Health and well being is maintained by creating balance in the chakra system through self awareness and changing of old patterns. These classes focus on creating sensory awareness and other tools necessary for the maintenance of your chakra system.
This layout is designed to soften the personal will in order to open the lines to the Spiritual Will thereby allowing a shift in perception. It will assist in giving one the opportunity to see and understand that which has held them back from realizing their true self. It helps to open the heart to one's gifts.
