Unveil the Mysteries of the Moon: Your Lunar Return
  Your Lunar return is the monthly chart of the instant the Moon in the sky returns to the exact position it was at your birth. It's kind of a monthly birthday, and the arrangement of planets it displays reflects the patterns of your coming month. Each month, this "re-birth-day" works out its potential for you and then is renewed once again 27 1/2 days later with a new set of surprises and opportunities. Join us as we get some general understanding of what this month holds for you, and the area of focus. This will require a printing of a special chart so your attendance must be confirmed 24 hours in advance. Members, we have your birth information on file. Guests must provide birthday, birth time and birth location to participate.

Who Are You Online? How to Brand Your Business on Facebook
  With more than 1.44 Billion active users on Facebook at this very moment, it is inarguably one of the most important places to have a powerful professional presence for your business. But with so many other businesses also fighting for the top spot in your news feed, and Facebook's smart feed algorithms, it's getting more and more complicated to successfully stand out. And on top of everything else going on in our life, we only have so much time in our day to devote to getting our brands out there. So how do we brand our businesses on Facebook? By thinking out of the "book".
  Join me in this 1 1/2 hour social media intensive class where we will be taking a deeper look into how we can make Facebook work for our businesses and get our brands out there. From analytics, audience targeting, and apps to visual branding and eye catching post strategies, we'll be auditing our own pages to see where and how to put our best face forward! (On Facebook that is)

Unlock What You Truly Want & Get It
  Come explore a fairly new critical thinking method that will help you realize what you really want - and to look at something you want in a new way. It is a process by which you take away the assumptions you have placed on what you think you want, and see what is beneath it all.
  In this class you will be going through a series of questions that lead you towards ultimately unlocking what you truly want, as well as the best way to get it. The “want” can be anything that you desire and feel you don’t have, such as a raise, a new job, or even a new bed. The process focuses on “how" you decide versus “what” you decide, and is designed to help you gain more clarity and get deeper in touch with your inner voice.

Learn the Strategy of Pre-Paving
  It is inevitable that you will face things that will throw you off a bit, stress you out, or give you some anxiety. Most times we just live each day hoping that everything will turn out okay. However, did you know that you have much more control over the outcomes of these challenges? Come and learn a strategy that you can use for the rest of your life, which will help you to take control of the outcome of every situation, and give you a focus that will help you to manifest the outcome you desire, instead of worry about the outcome that you don't desire. Alice has used this technique for over a dozen years with great success. If you are not going through any current challenges that you want to pre-pave, come and pre-pave the rest of the year!

Get in the FLOW
  There are famous studies in the world of psychology on “optimal experience” - a state of consciousness called “flow.” During “flow," or when we are "in the zone", we typically experience enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. Join us in this class as we discuss and learn how to apply psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s, groundbreaking work to our lives. This state can be controlled, not left to happen by chance. It has to do with how we order the information that comes into our consciousness. Understanding how to get in the flow more often can greatly improve the quality of our lives.

Introversion in an Extroverted World
  Ralph Emerson said, "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." Extroverts make up about 75% of the world's population and they tend to be louder, get more attention and get higher scores on "likability" tests. Introverts, on the other hand, often get drowned out and sometimes seen as "less value" than their extroverted peers. If a crowded social event is "no fun", and you are drained by too many encounters and energized by solitary pursuits, you are likely more introverted than extroverted. Come learn more about introversion, what it is, what it's subtle power and hidden strength is, and the things that all extroverts should know about introverts (and vice versa). If you are an introvert, you will love this class! If you know and love one, don't miss this! Introverts are not failed extroverts. Come learn how to live comfortably and dynamically in an extroverted world. Take this 12 question quiz if you don't know which you are.

Astrology Update: Medical Astrology & Your Chart
  Medical Astrology is the branch of astrology that deals with the workings of the human body. Come learn a little bit about how astrology can relate to your health, can show you some of your predisposed strengths and weaknesses and how certain signs are connected with certain parts of your bodies, and specific health challenges. For example, Aries is associated with the head, brain and eyes, so often head injuries, head aches, or other symptoms related to the head or the head’s organs are a focus in life. Join us as we use your natal chart as a guide and have a health-oriented discussion of each sign and other health indicators as revealed through the stars! (Need natal chart - some members we have on file, all others supply birth date, time, and location 24 hours prior to class)

Guided Meditation Night
  Join us for an evening of discussion about meditation, what it really is, how necessary it is (or isn’t) for you, and how to “meditate” without really sitting and meditating. Find out the latest studies and information on meditation and see if it’s time to revisit this practice. Alice will lead you through a “time traveler” guided visualization that will give you the opportunity to tap into your inner wisdom and bring peace and a new centeredness into your life.

How to Disagree Better
  Our world is filled with disagreement, and it's impossible to agree with everyone all the time about everything. We disagree on everything from whether or not the rail should be built in Hawaii, to how long we should let our children play video games. While disagreement can be civilized and productive, sometimes it is a source of misery. Our brains are very sensitive to the signals that we quietly send to each other that indicates who has the power, and who does not. When we disagree without thought or by habit, we step into alpha-alpha conflicts that make working together or living together that much harder. This class will help you to disagree better. It's not about being right, but it is about having a better understanding of why we disagree, and looking at other people's perspectives. If you have someone in your life that you seem to constantly disagree with, or you hate confrontation, this class will help ease the moment, giving you language to use, so that you can still express yourself, but not get into as much conflict.

Everything Happens for a Reason: 10 Reasons to Explain the Challenging Events in Your Life
  We have all heard the phrase, “everything happens for a reason.” Is it actually true? If so, what is the reason for why things happen, especially challenges, or seemingly unjust situations? Anytime we have undesirable situations in our lives, we have a greater chance of finding peace and understanding if we can find the significance of the event. Come discover what could be the reason(s) for confusing or unfortunate moments in your life, and celebrate the gifts, lessons, or opportunities they have brought. We will work on both past and present events in your life.

Our 4-Legged Child's Spiritual Transition
  The road to letting go with our canine children can be a beautiful journey. Fact of the matter is a canine’s life span is so much shorter than humans. As a result, most of us will experience this journey with our canine children.
  This journey together can teach us so much about ourselves and about being present for our canine children every step of the way.
  Embrace doing the best for your 4-legged children by being informed, compassionate, and loving. No regrets, my friends.
