COVID-19 UPDATE

Cedar Sanctuary programs are slooowly coming back as we maneuver these crazy times. We REALLY miss connecting with you and hope to see you soon! In the meantime, you can stay in touch via Facebook or Instagram, where I regularly post magical and inspiring nature pics from Cedar Sanctuary. Or send a note to susan333@live.com.

Happy Guts Workshops

With Kathleen Yow-Wells of Eastside Wellness Center
Saturday, November 13, 9am-2:30pm
Investment $175
(all attendees are vaccinated and masked)
Save-your-spot here
 
Happy Guts class is based on the practice of Chi Nei Tsang, a form of abdominal massage developed by Taoist monks in ancient China. Modern Chi Nei Tsang is abdominal organ massage meant to aid elimination and detoxification while building gut health and vitality. It also stabilizes emotions through release of tension and trauma.
 
We live in a fast-paced stressful world. Fast food, prolonged sitting, and forever ‘to do’ lists, undigested emotions, and chemicals play havoc with our nervous and digestive systems. Our gut function directly affects our basic levels of physical health, emotional well-being, and overall vitality. Abdominal self-massage is an excellent tool for improving and maintaining overall gut health and an excellent tool to move stress, tension, and unexpressed emotion through our systems.
 
During our time together, you will gain a deeper understanding of how the digestive system works, what can go wrong, and how to support your own digestive health and emotional well-being through slow mindful belly massage. You will learn and experience the power of breath, gut awareness, and purposeful abdominal self-touch to reduce tension, pain, discomfort, and improve mental and emotional well-being and balance.
 
You will learn a ‘your hands on your guts’ self-care routine for daily use. This can be wonderful for all family members, young and elderly alike. Learning resources will be provided. If you want to learn life-long tools to take care of and love your guts and diminish symptoms of digestive discomfort, this class is for you.
 
Kathleen Yow-Wells, LMT has been practicing therapeutic bodywork since 1982. She brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, passion, and humor to her teachings. Kathleen loves to teach self-care techniques to help people build their own little black bags of healing techniques.

“I didn’t think there was anything I could do about the brain fog I was experiencing and yet through this simple breathing practice, the fog lifted. The exercises apply not only to personal clarity and focus, but a heightened sense of connection to and awareness of one’s surroundings. Think, getting ‘tuned in!” SC

Props: mask, yoga mat, whatever will make you comfortable lying on the floor (blanket, pillow for head, bolster for under knees, eye pillow, etc…)

High Frequency Meditation and Healing Sound Bath

With Dawn Little Torres of Dakini Healing
Stay-tuned for next program at Cedar Sanctuary
Investment: $50 in-advance / $55 day-of (limited space and must pre-register)
Registration link will be provided once WA State phasing allows for group gatherings, but you can email interest to susan333@live.com, or join mailing list for future program updates here.

UPDATE: Regarding COVID-19 precautions at Cedar Sanctuary, we take prevention measures very seriously, and in addition to mandated or recommended safety measures (capacity/masks/distancing etc.), we’ve implemented additional precautions such as wall-mounted paper towels, motion-sensor soap dispensers, spray sanitizer/disinfectant at entries, and more.

PROGRAM INFO:

Everything is Energy in motion…even those things that appear to be still. There is a vibration that permeates all things in nature, including the thoughts, feelings and emotions that course through us. When these streams of energy flowing through us are in harmony with nature, it is energy flowing at a high and beautiful frequency. When those thoughts and emotions are not in sync with nature’s balanced rhythms, we find ourselves Feeling out of sync. The stresses and fast pace of life can create anxiousness, fear, depression, fatigue and even physical illness, these are feelings NOT in harmony with nature and the body suffers when exposed to them long term. 

As we gather in circle and ceremony, Dawn will then guide us through some gentle movement to allow the body to release stress and tension of the day. We will then come into a comfortable Savasana position (lying on a yoga mat) to receive the healing vibrations and sounds of the Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Giant Gong and various healing sound tools to open us up completely and penetrate our being at the deepest level.

Please bring a mask, yoga mat, water bottle, and anything that will make your experience more enjoyable, such as blanket, pillow, eye pillow, etc. Dress in cozy layers. (Not necessary to print eventbrite ticket, but please arrive early to get set up.)

 

About Dawn: As a yoga and meditation teacher, energy and sound healer, Dawn blends her love of teaching yoga with many years of studying alternative healing modalities. She guides clients and students to wake up their deeply rooted inner guidance system through Yoga, Reiki and Sound Healing. She has come to know that the body’s natural inclination is towards wellness, it is her passion to assist others in becoming aware of and removing the obstacles in the way of that movement. www.dakinihealing.com

Rite Of The Womb Ceremony

Investment: $50 in-advance / $55 day-of (limited space and must pre-register)

Regarding COVID-19 precautions at Cedar Sanctuary, we take prevention measures very seriously and in addition to mandated or recommended safety measures, we’ve implemented additional precautions such as wall-mounted paper towels, motion-sensor soap dispensers, spray sanitizer/disinfectant at bathroom entry, and more. This program will be outdoors on a grassy area encircled within a majestic grove of trees.

PROGRAM INFO:

Marcela Lobos of The Four Winds Society first transmitted the seeds of the 13th Rite of the Munay-Ki or “the Rite of the Womb” when she shared it to over two hundred Women at the Omega Institute with the intent that it would continue to be passed on from Woman to Woman.
 
We come together as a Sacred Circle of Women, open to receive this rite as it was transmitted to me by my teacher, Julie Hannon, who received it directly from Marcela Lobos. This evening incorporates ceremony, transmission of rites, mantra, sacred offering, connecting and sharing. This will be an evening of healing, blessing, inspiration and hope.
 
Since the beginning of time, women have experienced deep pain and suffering related to the womb, passed down through the lineage of our Mothers, Grandmothers and beyond. Whether we have birthed children or not, the unhealed pain that remains in our wombs blocks our creativity and passion and in essence our ability to birth and create our full potential in life.
 
The Rite is intended to heal all women of the suffering they carry in their wombs as well as the collective womb of our planet. There is now a lineage of women who have freed themselves from this suffering and who will continue to share this healing around the world.
 
Please join us and take your place in the circle.

Restorative Meditation – Yoga Nidra

Sonia Weirich of One To One Yoga
Investment $25. Space is limited and reservations required.

NOTE: This program has been moved to online until further notice. Email Sonia at onetooneyoga@gmail.com

Constant mind chatter keeping you awake is no match for the healing experience of Yoga Nidra Restorative Meditation. An ancient practice, Yoga Nidra, is a guided meditative inquiry into the states of being, and what is beyond these states.

Nothing is expected of you, no need to be a meditator, bendy, or even fit. You’ll be guided into a resting position while suggestions and prompts guide your mind into relaxation.

What to bring: Please dress comfortably and bring anything that would be helpful while lying in Savasana on a yoga mat (yoga mat provided or bring your own, and you may want a bolster/pillow for knees/head or comfy blanket).

 

Amigas

Stay-tuned for next date!
Potluck (Store-bought is aok!)
Amigas Group on Facebook

Amigas is a multicultural community of women who know that there is more that connects us than divides us. We connect to grow meaningful and enriching relationships, create a sense of belonging for everyone, and have fun together.

As we remember our strengths and reconnect with our vibrant selves and each other, we benefit both as individuals and the evolution of our planet as a whole. To quote female role model Mamma Gena, “The joy of life is not simply in serving oneself. The true joy of life is in being able to be a part of a larger community of service, taking one another higher.”

Amigas meets regularly at Cedar Sanctuary to surround each other with the support of sisterhood, community, connection, and inspiration. For more information contact Susan Creighton: susan333@live.com / 425.298.6428
