WOMEN'S CIRCLE WITH EMILIA CIANCI
SUNDAY, JUNE 13, 6:30 - 8:30 PM
As women we have sat in Circle for many many centuries, each month returning to ourselves, sharing our Truth and envisioning the future with our Sisters. As we have distanced ourselves from these intimate ways of connecting many of us have forgotten the power of Sisterhood and Authentic Communication and are feeling lost and disconnected. This is why more and more of us are yearning for such spaces. During our time together we will co-create a sacred and safe space together, where we will practice speaking from our heart and listening deeply to one another. It will be a place to return back to the wisdom we hold within ourselves, to get inspired from other Women, to remember our Feminine power, our intuitive, creative and nurturing qualities. Never as now, do we need such spaces where we can feel supported and held to explore what it means to be a woman in a time of profound social transformation. Having lost many certainties we are all facing the need of creating new ways of being in the world and these circles are a perfect place to learn from one another and to voice our visions and needs. We meet in a sacred way meaning that we honor the time and space that we are sharing and we honor the uniqueness that we all carry. During the circle we will have some time to sit in silence, time to share, time to journal and perhaps some time for creativity.
Please bring with you a pen and paper (or your favorite notebook) as well as an object to place on the altar.

THE ART OF RESTORING THE SELF WITH LAVINIA NANNINI, JUNE 20, 6:30 - 8 PM
Restorative Yoga is the nourishing and healing practice of deep and conscious relaxation.
This workshop will start with an introduction to the methods and benefits of the yogic Art of Restoring mind, body and soul. Restorative Yoga is a fundamental tool to master in today's society to balance our stressful and hectic modern lifestyles and is immensely valuable at this current time to process the pandemic. The workshop will then guide you through a well-rounded Restorative sequence that will open with a taste of yoga philosophy and pranayama (breathing techniques) moving into restorative poses that use props and that are held for longer periods of time to support and allow the physical body to release completely and the mind to calm. To achieve this state of stillness, introspection and deep rest: visualizations, scents, physical touch and music will be incorporated. The sequence will end with a short restorative meditation.
Whether you are curious to learn restorative techniques for rest and relaxation or healing, you will experience a deep release and insight that is not often attainable in quicker-paced yoga classes. Restorative yoga emphasizes the calming of the nervous system and teaches the art of physical relaxation, which has tremendous emotional and physical benefits. You will leave feeling refreshed and fully restored and you will have learnt techniques that can be integrated into the busiest of schedules.
The workshop will conclude with time for Q & A and is open to all levels.
