Second Thursday of the month; 7:15pm–8:50pm; $12–$20 sliding scale
Next sessions: Thursday, June 13 and August 8
This contemplative, somatic, and soul-oriented monthly class invites participants into an ongoing inner exploration of our unfolding initiatory journeys, featuring guided individual inquiries, paired processes, and optional opportunities for working directly with the class facilitator. Drawing on meditative traditions, depth psychology, understandings of soul-centric human development, and Focusing—a mindfulness-based, embodied approach to growth and healing—this class supports us in working with inner material in a transformative space, deepening our contact with the core of our being, and walking our most authentic and purposeful path. Each month will feature different guided explorations and processes; feel free to journey with us month-to-month, or drop in for individual classes as you like.
