Guided Meditation
with Scripture Reading

Daphne Scherzer

Join graduating Teacher Trainee, Daphne-Michael Scherzer for an hour of guided meditative bliss. Here, you will comfortably sit or lay down and completely relax, be still, and experience the peace that comes from a conscious decision to disconnect with the outside world and reconnect with your spiritual self.

During this one hour donation based class, Daphne will read handpicked biblical scriptures to help your mind settle in and your body settle down. Your mind will be allowed to fully relax as you give yourself the gift of time to commune with Your Heavenly Father without any distractions.

This is actually an ancient practice called, Lectio Divina. It's a meditation that's intended to allow you to commune with God and the living word of the Bible to speak to you uniquely as it is read repetitively throughout this guided meditation.

History of Yoga

Suzanne Sabourin

September 15th 2019 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Many practitioners in the western world know only the physical practice of yoga, the asana practice, that we all bring to our mats. But there is so much more to yoga than just the physical practice, it is a spiritual and philosophical practice that can truly enhance one’s life. We will spend a couple of hours exploring the history and philosophy of Yoga, including discussion on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita. Hours of this workshop are eligible for Yoga Alliance CEHs.

Yoga Mythology

This workshop is eligible for CEHs through Yoga Alliance.
