Sunday, December 21, 10-12n ~ You’re invited to receive Buddhist teachings (dharma), practice meditation, and experience the relevance and benefits of Buddhist philosophy and meditation in daily life. People of all ages, backgrounds, and beliefs are welcome to this freely offered biweekly event ~ donations gratefully accepted

Special Extended Class! RESTORATIVE YOGA with David Schouela
Sunday, December 21, 4-6:30pm
Join yoga & meditation teacher David Schouela for a special extended restorative yoga class. Restorative yoga allows the nervous system to quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing chronic patterns of tension. As attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates the qualities of mindfulness and presence. $25 or class card + $10

SOUND HEALING CIRCLE with Brad Brockmann & Comma Williams
Sunday, December 21, 7-9pm ~ doors open 6:45, close 7:20
Join us on the last Sunday of the month to explore the transformative healing powers of sound. You will both co-create and receive sound healing, and learn how to improvise music with a healing intention. Bring your favorite instruments or just yourself, your voice and your love. Prior musical or healing experience is welcome but not required. Suggested donation $10-20

Dharma Film Series presents IDA
