Herb Walk: Coastal~ May 31st

The best way to build your relationship to the natural world is to learn the names and uses of the plants you live with. Enrich your experience of the ecosystems you call home, exploring the plants that thrive in the salty beach air or along our deep forest stream beds. Bring sturdy shoes, whatever water and snacks support your best comfort and attention, and a notepad and pencil.

Coastal herb walk will meet at the head of the short trail to the beach on the right side of the lower loop of the picnic area at Priest Point Park. [A riparian herb walk is offered in April.]

Becoming Your Higher Self~ May 17th

 Your higher self is the highest ideal of your self—the most evolved, expanded version of your consciousness. When you meet and commune with your higher self you begin the journey of becoming your higher self. This part of you is centered in your heart and completely understands your soul path and the true nature of the universe! Your higher self possesses divine wisdom to share with you through your intuition to aid you in all kinds of tasks. Your higher self is capable of healing your body and clearing your mind of limiting belief systems that are creating conflict in your life. Your higher self is waiting for you to receive its unconditional love and service to your highest purpose. Real and lasting happiness is the fulfillment of that purpose with heart-centered living, meaningful relationships and savoring the gifts of each present moment. It begins with the inner relationship with your highest self.

Join me in exploring ways to tune into your higher self and how to use this incredible asset to navigate the seeming chaos of life. As always we will rely on the benefits of sound meditation within a gong bath to enhance/integrate the teachings.

Instructor: Jessica O’Malley LAc, LMP. Jessica is a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist. She practices traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. She has been in love with vibrational medicine since childhood and has been using sound therapy to enhance her healing practice since 2007. Her first gong bath was in 2010, the experience was ecstatic and profound; she is excited to share the healing power of her gong with our community.

Gracefully Aging with Facial Gymnastics May 7th

Our face mirrors the rhythms and activities of our life and tells a wonderful story. In this class learn how to actively strengthen and train your facial muscles to achieve their best possible condition. This active care of the face can lead to the stimulation of lymph flow, the enhancement of circulation, the vitalization of all tissue, firming and rejuvenation.

By keeping our skin taut and facial muscles toned, we can slow and soften the age-dependent loss of firmness in a more natural way. Simple and effective short exercises will be demonstrated and practiced.

Crystal Experience and Theory- Sunday, May 3

Students should leave with the ability to understand how any crystal is likely to affect them just by looking at it.

Instructor: Heather Dunn. Working at Radiance for seven years, Heather has passionately taken to the study and experience of crystals. She also reads and teaches tarot, and is skilled at helping students tune out anxiety and ego, and tune into intuitive information.
