A Walk on the Wild Side – June 7th
A photographic tour of the Great Pacific Flyway, through the Sacramento Valley. This isn’t a bird watching program, nor a review of all the species that travel the Flyway, but is an intimate view through a photographer’s lens of some of the amazing birds that migrate through the Sacramento Valley along the Great Pacific Flyway, as well as some of the birds that call this their permanent home. Witness the four seasons and learn why the Sacramento Valley is such a critical part of the Great Pacific Flyway.
Healing in Nature with Kundalini Yoga Techniques to Relieve Stress & Anxiety – June 17th
During these 2 hours I’ll share and show participants 3 Kundalini Yogic Breathwork Techniques to: 1. Get out of the “loop” of intrusive thoughts (no hypnosis, “positive thinking”, or special skills required) 2. Become focused, productive and motivated to work…even if you are feeling tired, overwhelmed, and “all over the place” 3. Feel more relaxed, confident and free from excessive worry about the future. As a bonus, I will take participants through a Kundalini Kriya known to: 1. Improve circulatory system 2. Remove toxins from the energy system (aka release toxic energy) 3. Increase sense of compassion, understanding and acceptance of the Self and others as we all traverse this challenging journey called “Life” and, finally, I will end the session with a Gong Sound Bath Healing. I have allotted 2 hours for clarification of terms, ensuring correct use of the techniques, explaining each exercise, etc.
