Riding the Wave of Change

This class continues as change is constant. By working with reflective tools- such as writing and symbols, and spiritual practices – such as Mantra and the Divine Light Invocation – you can prepare for change, access strength during transition and clarify options for your next steps. Swami Radha’s classic: Kundalini Yoga for the West and  Hatha Yoga: The Hidden Language will guide our classes. Come and learn to ride the wave of life with graceful ease.

The Wisdom of Dreams

Dreams are a gift from a wiser part  of ourselves that speaks in symbols and metaphors: our own dream language. It is very helpful to listen. By simply working with your dreams you will gain inspiration and insights that will help you to move toward your goals.

The method of dream interpretation we use comes from Swami Radha’s text Realities of the Dreaming Mind.  Reflective practices and group discussion are included in the class.
