The Art of Creativity
  Everyone wants to be creative. And all people can learn to awaken their artistic capabilities. Picasso said: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Creativity is a way of life and is not the exclusive domain of artists, writers, and scientists. It is the birthright of every human being. To live a full, productive, and satisfying life, and to make a meaningful contribution to others, one must discover and employ this most distinctive of human capacities: the ability to create.

Overwhelmed to Empowered: Time & Life Optimization
  Do you ever feel like there is just not enough time to do everything that you want to, and "have to" do? Does your life feel like a never-ending blur of to-do lists, emails, events, commitments, and obligations? Do you ever worry that time is racing by so quickly that you are missing out on quality time with your friends, family, and yourself?
  If so, you're certainly not alone. In this day and age, most of us are familiar with that frazzled feeling of being overworked and overwhelmed. We are busier than ever and yet we find ourselves struggling to find the time to do the things that will help move us to our bigger goals, dreams, and life vision. We tell ourselves that we will start pursuing our dreams "when life settles down", but that day never seems to come. It's time for a shift!

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
  If you are the type that is interested in anything that has to do with organizing and decluttering, you have probably heard about the best-selling book from Japan titled, "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up". When I heard of its popularity and the 50 persons waiting list for the library copy, I knew I had to see what all the fuss was about. If you haven’t read the book yet, come and let me give you an overview of the book and the key points to the “KonMari” method. It is revolutionary in it’s method, and takes tidying to a whole new level. According to Marie Kondo, if you simplify properly, you’ll never have to do it again. She has a category-by-category system that leads to lasting results. Come and hear the basics and see why I think this is the way to declutter!

Soul-Centered Goals, Soul-Centered Intentions
  We commonly set goals according to what we want to accomplish. It's usually along the lines of eating healthier, a certain level of work success, better time management, learning a new skill, or getting "further" in our lives. It is basically a desired result that you envision, plan, and commit to achieve - some sort of personal or organizational desired end-point. Setting and achieving goals gives us life direction, and boosts our motivation and self-confidence. However, have you ever thought of setting "soul-centered" goals along with your regular goals, and intentionally align with your "spirit"? We all have extraordinary ability to create our lives and we find more joy and "connection" when we expand beyond our five senses and align our personality with our higher purpose. Learn to operate with a new sense of power. In this class, explore what your soul intention is, and let's set goals that are more aligned with your spirit for greater joy.

Forgetful? How to Get Back Your Memory!
  Join us as Dalybeth Reasoner, professor of Psychology at U.H. and other universities (including Happiness University!) shares all the latest information about memory. Memory makes us. It is a complex, brain-wide process that is essential to who we are, and we have short-term memory and long-term memory. Without the two functions of our brain, we wouldn't be able to recall the who, what, where, and when of our everyday lives, and we would never be able to manage. Since recorded history, humans have tried to understand what memory is, how it works, and why it goes wrong. Dalybeth will shed light about memory and how by understanding better what it is, and how technology is coming into play, we can better utilize and live our lives with more awareness.

Astrology Update: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Your Chart
  Eclipses are like "reboots" for our lives, and the location in your chart where the eclipse happens can give us great insight as to what we need to be aware of for maximum growth and evolution. An eclipse may point to an area in our lives that is out of balance, and help us to raise our consciousness so that we can respond in a new way, resulting in greater gains in our lives. The New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 20, when found in your chart, will show you where new developments will require your attention for the upcoming six months. Join Alice for this event.
  NOTE: You MUST preregister for this class at least 24 hours in advance with your birth time, birth date, and birth location for this class to be useful. Members: If you let us know 24 hours in advance, we will print a special eclipse chart for the class. If you just drop in, we can use a chart we have on file, but you will not get the custom printout.

Understanding Divination
  Is there a way to "tell the future?" Can one accurately predict what's going to happen in time? Can we get useful insight by using divination tools? There are numerous methods of divination from different cultures and time periods. This class will be a discussion and practice of the most common ones. Bring your questions and curiosity, and get further personal insight and understand more of "how it works." Divination is a systematic method with which to organize what appears to be random facets of existence such that they provide insight. Cards (Tarot), stones (Runes), pendulum, and the I Ching, are a few of the methods we will discuss. Some find these tools to be helpful on their journey of life, and others find them to be nonsense. Only you will know what resonates with you. This class is a simple offering of information, not a class to sway you to "believe" or use them in your life.

Integrated Movement Workshop, Part 2: Pelvis, Spine, & Core
  As early as in your mid-20’s, you will start losing muscle and your ability to heal will slow down. When we enter our 40-50’s, it is time to move thru life with our eyes and heart open. This applies to our exercise regime as well since non-integrated form can not only be unproductive, but injurious.
  What is “Integrated Movement?” It is acknowledging and respecting our body as a whole and not pieces. It is working toward balance with the physical body where strength and suppleness along with calmness of mind is in a constant flow. It is respecting that your miraculous body is made to move in many ways, not only the habitual movement you have in daily life which can result in overuse and tightness in some areas and laxity in others.
  There will be three parts to the class:
  1. Increased knowledge regarding your physical body for better appreciation and awareness.
  2. Active integrated work so you can actually “feel” the kinetic chain of energy that you are working and why this is important. This will allow you to incorporate safer and more effective movement into your own workouts.
  3. In conclusion, we will learn to calm the mind with various techniques of Breathing and Yoga Nidra.

Manifest Through Vision Boarding
  Many people have made vision boards and found great success in such a creation. A vision board is simply a poster board filled with images of who you are, who you want to become, what you want to have, and where you want to manifest. It is a fun and simple way to get into intentional focus and a stress-free way to get into moving towards what you desire. Attention and intention are powerful. This class will be in three parts: writing and envisioning, creating the vision board, and then the "secret" (that everyone forgets about) on how to make the images become a reality. We will cover three types of vision boards, one of which you will resonate with and create. Once you sign up for the class, you will be notified of what to prepare and bring. So --- whether you are clear about what you want in your life, or unsure of where you are heading, this class will point you in the right direction. Space limited so sign up as soon as you know you want to join us.
