Oneness Blessing

Open to the Community!

Sunday, Nov. 17, 3-5 p.m.

This event is free.

At this Oneness Blessing event you will receive a transformative blessing preceded by a chakra meditation. Also known as Deeksha, a transformative blessing is a direct transfer of energy "which causes the heart to flower and the mind to quiet." This brings a shift in perception and the realization that the sense of separate self is an illusion bringing the experience of oneness.

Bereavement Workshop

Sunday, Nov. 3, 3-5 p.m.

Free. Donations greatly appreciated.

Grief is the sum of all our responses to a loss, not just our sadness. It is individual, understandable, unpredictable, overwhelming, and not bound by time. This workshop is an opportunity to give your grief time, space and expression. Please bring a journal of your choice for a journal-writing grief exercise.
