Luminous Prenatal Yoga

Pregnancy is a wonderful time to focus inward, build strength and flexibility, and learn the art of relaxation. This six week session will use pranayama, asana, meditation and visualization to connect with the breath, body, emotions, and baby in a compassionate way.

The benefits of prenatal yoga can include more energy, greater focus, ease of common discomforts, preparation for birth, greater balance and awareness, and self-empowerment.

6 week session – Tuesdays, Sept 9 thru Oct 14, 2008, 10:30 – noon.
$60 or $12 drop-in fee.

Please bring a yoga mat, blanket, and pillow for relaxation/meditation, plenty of water and snacks, and anything else you may need to be comfortable... and please check with your midwife or physician before embarking on the yoga journey.

Classes are held at Radiance, 9 W. Grant St, Lancaster- across from Central Market.
Call Radiance at 290-1517 or stop by to register.

Reiki Shares in Lancaster

On the third Sunday afternoon of each month, Radiance is host to a Reiki Share. Usually facilitated by Marilyn Landis, who teaches the Reiki classes we offer at Radiance, the Reiki shares are open to anyone who has been attuned to at least Reiki Level One. We meet in circle first, share Reiki experiences & discuss Reiki issues, then we break into groups & exchange Reiki with each other. Each person has the opportunity to receive Reiki as well as giving it to others in the group. The Share is from 1:30 until 4pm on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

Reiki Share Lancaster also hosts a yahoo group, which sends reminders of the monthly Shares, and allows us to request distance Reiki (for ourselves or others) from the group between meetings. If you would like to subscribe to the Reiki Share Lancaster group, you can email a request for an invitation to LabyrinthHerbs@aol.com or MarilynJude@aol.com .

The Ancestors Workshop with Amanda Kemp

You know the ancestors are calling you
You know the ancestors are calling you
They say Remember me
They say Forgive me
They say I forgive you

Inspired by her poem, You Know the Ancestors Are Calling You, Amanda Kemp developed this workshop to open the door to compassion, forgiveness and a deeper awareness of what we are called to do in this life.

Integrating yoga postures, creative writing and meditation Dr. Kemp creates a space for participants to connect with, and draw strength from, our ancestors. These ancestors may be biological, political, spiritual or artistic with names known or unknown to us. Appropriate for all levels of yoga and/or writing experience, Dr. Kemp has offered this workshop at Pendle Hill, Stanford University and Friends General Conference, among other places.
