Bringing Joy Into the Kitchen
  Many of us are so busy, that cooking is never a priority, yet feeding ourselves well is the ultimate in self care. How do we take what precious little time we have and make room for cook time?
  I'll be talking about ways to use time management in the kitchen, easy prep techniques, planning, and making cooking fun.

The Power of Self-Healing Through Mindfulness Meditation
  The breath is not only a source of support for the physical body; it is also a support for mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. For practitioners, when we speak of the breath, we are not only speaking of the ordinary inhalation and exhalation of oxygen and carbon dioxide but we are also talking about the air element—one of the fundamental elements of life.
  The ancient traditions of Eastern philosophy, medicine, and meditation all place importance on the qualities and harmony of the four elements; namely earth, water, fire and air. When their harmony is disrupted, illness occurs not just physically but also psychologically. By practicing the Tibetan Breathing technique, the equilibrium of your body could be restored.

Mindfulness Meditation Series
  Very often in our daily life, we become so used to the appearance of objects that we frequently stop really seeing them. Mindfulness is the ability to bring back the awareness of what is happening inside and around us. It is a system of mind training and self-exploration. By improving our concentration, one can:
  -Achieve physical relaxation
  -Have more control over thought processes
  -Increase tranquility and the ability to deal with stress
  -Heal, physically and psychologically
  -Have enhanced spiritual development        •Register here

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.

Break Up with Your Belongings
  We've all been in relationships that came to a point when we knew it was healthy and best to "move on" from and "let go" of them -- this is also true of belongings. Yet, many of us find it hard to let go of things even when we know we want to... this is due to emotional attachments formed with objects. This class will help you get clarity on why you are holding on to certain things, as well as help you clarify what to keep, what to donate, what to give away, when looking to clear your life of clutter (emotionally and physically).

Astrology Update: Purpose, Fulfillment, & Vocational Astrology
  Let’s look at your birth chart from the perspective of your purpose, vocation, and fulfillment. What do you need to be fulfilled? Many people spend more of their lifetime working than doing anything else. Even if you are not working at a “job,” what we do on a day-to-day basis is not just for survival, but also for an individual sense of personal fulfillment. Join us as Alice helps you see – through various analytical considerations – how to distill some general direction. Much of it you may already know, but to see it line up in your chart can be insightful and life affirming. It may even spark some ideas or directions to pursue.
  MUST PROVIDE: Birthday, birth time, and birth location, submitted at least 24 hours in advance so your chart can be prepared. Members, if you know we have yours on file, you need only register.

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.

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!
