Local author and yoga teacher Matt Foley is releasing a new book of poetry, This One Breath. In this new collection, Matt drew inspiration from his own yoga practice and the work of great spiritual poets like Rumi, Basho, and Walt Whitman to explore themes of love, loss, forgiveness, and growth.
In order to bring these poems to life, he is enlisting the help of Mission founder Kelly Jean Moore, poet and musician Marcus Amaker, and artist Filip Aasiyah-Bey. Weaving together poetry with meditation, music, and the art of mandalas, this event will explore the connection between spiritual practice and creativity as doorways to the sacred. Each ticket purchase comes with a free copy of This One Breath.
**Beginners to meditation are welcomed and encouraged. Come as you are, no yoga mats or special clothing is required**

Join Caryn Antos O'Hara in a workshop that utilizes movement, breath work, and discussion to unpack the Ayurvedic concepts of prana and vata management. Prana, a sub-category of vata, is the energetic layer responsible for all movement including intellect and vital functions. We cannot affect prana without strengthening or weakening vata energy.
Sure. You've done pranayama in class and know it's beneficial for mind/body connection. But do you know how it heals the body? Do you know you know that it can also create havoc?Prana is the energetic layer responsible for all movement including intellect and vital functions. This experiential weekend explains why we simply cannot live in the seat of awareness without the full spectrum of knowledge about pranic energy.
If prana is out of balance, we feel it. Prana’s effects begin subtly. Only the practitioner who knows what to look for notices the effects before they progress to later stages of dis-ease. This program will give you tools to notice the signs early and medicinal practices to consciously incorporate over the long haul.
The more we know about how it feels to be pranically out of sorts, the better we are at addressing it at the onset. Whereby, we heal ourselves before the feeling of imbalance is misunderstood and potentially becomes a means to stay “high”, active, or connected to Spirit.
Both days offer lecture, practices of pranayama, vata-balancing yoga, and Q&A.
Bring water and tools you need if you’re a note-taker. Wear movement-geared clothes.
When: October 14, 1-4pm and October 15, 1-4pm
Investment: $75 for one/ $125 for both days

Join Rachel Keener for a workshop designed to support a self-empowering, evidence-based & efficacy-proven, stress and tension relief practice called TRE® (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises®). As a bottom-up approach, TRE® actually works to erase the imprint of stress, tension and trauma from the inside out—activating a natural rebalancing mechanism that already exists within our bodies. Simultaneously, TRE® creates space for resiliency and increased mental and physical capacity, bolstering experiences of wellness.
TRE® is extremely effective as a stand-alone practice, and it deepens all other stress-relief practices such as yoga, mindfulness & meditation
