Nature Mandala Making and Meditation
1.5-hour workshop with Natalie Pyrooz

Take a walk to explore the beautiful Sierra Hot Springs property, slowing down to observe the emerging details of spring.
Explore connecting even deeper with the elements by creating a nature mandala. Learn about the meaning behind mandalas in cultures around the world and the value of creating ritual and sacred space in nature. We will ethically and mindfully collect small pieces (leaves, twigs, seed pods, stones) that call out to us, to create a beautiful, personal mandala.
After your mandala is created, enjoy a guided meditation using your ephemeral art piece accompanied by sound healing instruments.
Weather permitting, the entire activity will take place outside; if conditions are adversary we will modify and build our mandalas indoors as needed.

Qigong: Tools for Self-healing
1-1/4 hour class With Beth Freewomon

Qigong (A.K.A. Chi Gong) is a moving meditation technique that not only improves physical fitness, but also assists us in achieving a deeper sense of calm, relieves tension and stress, and helps us recover from injury and illness. It is part of the ancient systems of Taoism and Chinese medicine that value the interconnectedness and inherent wholeness of all of our Self and our body’s seeming parts. Qigong supports our bodies’ natural capacity for self-healing. Qigong allows us to relax, get out of “fight or flight” and our parasympathetic nervous system to take over so healing can happen. Our practice includes conscious breathing, stretching, activation of chi, flowing movements and more.
