Receiving your souls wisdom through a shaman guided Tantric practice of Dream Yoga with Linda Go
When you experience a gripping dream do you try to interpret the “symbols” and piece together a narrative to make sense of it? Or, maybe you approach it as a riddle to be solved, connected to a challenge or event in your waking life... These are useful approaches to working with dreams, yet they can deprive you of a more organic experience of your dream images and the feelings they evoke. Your Adventure Begins in this ongoing Dream Yoga evening series, with Linda Go, your shaman guide. You will learn ways to or expand your current shamanic practice as you : • Move beyond dream interpretation — and recognize how your ‘sacred encounter’ dreams can enrich your waking life with more imagination, love & joy. • Access the deep feeling in your dreams to face and remove fears, uncover and transform old reactive patterns and unveil your soul’s wisdom. • Receive powerful experiential practices to help you recognize your sacred encounter dreams • Become and stay more lucid so you can move consciously through your dream scapes • Access your power animals, places of higher wisdom and locate your guides and teachers • Journey weekly through the vertical and horizontal planes of non-ordinary reality in a safe and traditional shamanic supported space. No experience is required. Wear comfy clothes, bring your notebook, journal or drawing materials.
Better Balance Workshop. Sunday Feb 23 3-5 pm w/Linda Go. Register here
The most important muscles for keeping you upright are found in your feet, legs, and core.
Your brain is what essentially keeps you balanced.
Good balance is often taken for granted. Most people don’t find it difficult to walk across a gravel driveway, transition from walking on a sidewalk to grass, or get out of bed in the middle of the night without stumbling. However, with impaired balance such activities can be extremely fatiguing and sometimes dangerous. Symptoms that accompany the unsteadiness can include dizziness, vertigo, hearing and vision problems, and difficulty with concentration and memory. According to a review published in December 2014 in the International Journal of Nursing Sciences, by damaging nerve function and sensation in your feet, diabetes-related neuropathy greatly increases your risk of falls,. It notes that in one previous study of 55 and older adults, those with diabetes-related neuropathy were 23 times more likely to suffer a fall compared with those without. That’s where better balance yoga and complimentary stability work comes in: training your muscles and the neurons in charge of them to properly fire and work together. Linda Gos Better Balance Yoga classes and workshops apply simple, do it at home yoga practices that includes Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and proven therapeutic TRE, Alexander and Feldenkrais Techniques to help you integrate balance and stability practices into your everyday routines. Over time, you can improve your balance with these exercises and practices by: • Holding the position for a longer amount of time • Adding movement to a pose • Closing your eyes with stability • Letting go of your chair or other support Its not the muscles that change the movement, but the brain that makes the distinctions between stability and falling on our face. Yoga, tai chi, qi gong and active meditation with breath exercises is optimum for brain balance and your nervous system needs. After all, studies have repeatedly shown that these modalities are beneficial in the management of various neurological disorders, diabetes-related neuropathy included, according to a review published in October 2012 in the journal Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology. It only takes 4 weeks to feel the difference ! Better Balance Yoga Class meets every Tuesday 3pm-4pm Better Balance Workshop Sunday February 23, 3pm-5pm $35

Gong Sound Healing Bath (without yoga poses, suitable for everyone)
Meditative Tea Circle. Friday. Feb 7. 6.30-8.30. Steven and Monica Register hereRead more...
This is a meditative tea journey that weaves together tea, guided meditation, and gong sound healing. We will attune to the effects of the tea chosen for the experience, the medicine of the Earth, to create for ourselves a meditative state. We will then progress into a guided meditation, diving even deeper into the Self on this inward journey of restoration. Then, a rejuvenating gong sound healing bath allows for the healing experience to remain and be carried into life’s day-to-day challenges.
Monica holds a 200 hr YTT certificate. I deepened my yoga practice through YTT and during that time my relationship with tea began. I met my tea teacher, Ashley Smith, who regularly held tea ceremonies. She studied the philosophies of a few tea masters, including Wu De, of The Global Tea Hut in Taiwan. I quickly fell in love with tea and it became a daily practice in my home. Over time, working with tea helped me connect with my subconscious, clear stagnant energy and discover the root of some deep emotional spaces in my life that needed tending. My spiritual connection grew as I wove the practices of yoga, meditation and sitting with tea together. Ive been inspired to share this practice that has helped me so much in my journey and want to encourage others to build a spiritual practice for themselves. In my experience, it can open us up to a higher calling in our lifes path.
I am a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher based in Asheville, NC. During my teacher training program, I had the opportunity to study and learn how to play the gong with Harijiwan, who has been playing the gong for over 30 years and is considered a gong master. Vibrations created through properly played gongs have many benefits from destroying cancer cells to repairing damaged DNA and nerves. It aids in sleep, rest, and an overall state of relaxation. The best part about a gong sound bath is that all you have to do is lie down, cover up with a blanket or shawl, and allow the sound vibration to move energy through the body. I use a Venus planetary gong, where the sound current vibrates at the frequency of the planet Venus as calculated by Swiss mathematician and musicologist Hans Cousto. Venus represents love, joy, beauty, and the Divine Feminine energy at it’s best. By attending a Gong Sound Healing Bath with me through the tones of the Venus gong we will open you up to all that is Venusian; love, joy and beauty.
