Yoga for the Holidays

The Holidays are a time of great joy, but it can also be a time of pressure and stress. As the busyness of the season takes over, it becomes even more important to take the time to, pause, breathe, connect and give to yourself.

Sybil Drbal, a local yoga instructor, will guide you through a grounding & relaxing Vinyasa (flow style) practice. The intention of Vinyasa yoga is to help you get out of your head and more into your body, to connect to the present moment through your breath, and to find stillness in both moving and seated meditation.

When: The First 3 Tuesdays in December
(12/1, 12/8, & 12/15)
Time: 6:30-7:30 pm (come a few minutes early to set out your mat)
Where: In the Children’s Garden
$10/class or $25/for all 3. Or love offering.

Healing Meditation @ Unity of Boulder Spiritual Center
Dec 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Our Healing Meditation Service is every Wednesday at 7pm which includes a Guided Meditation accompanied by the sounding of the Tibetan Singing Bowls.

When the Tibetan monks create the 7 chakra bowls, the bowl begins as a molten mixture of the special seven sacred metals, gold, silver, iron, mercury, tin, copper and lead. Each of the sacred metals is aligned with the seven heavenly bodies in our solar system and the seven chakras of our body. It takes three to four people to hammer each bowl. One holds the hot metal with blacksmith tongs while two or three others alternate hammering and chanting, infusing the bowl with healing intentions while it is created.

What a blessing to share the magnificence of the divine in this way.
Free Childcare Provided.

Come laugh, learn and grow together through our ego experiences while we transform our perception from Fear to Love and you will bring greater joy, peace, love and fulfillment into every area of your life!

Tai’ Chi Gung @ Unity of Denver
Dec 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Do you want to make your spiritual life physical?

Tai Chi Gung is sometimes called the “simple yoga”. It features fluid breathing and graceful moving exercises that build stamina, relieve stress, improve balance, speed recovery from injury, strengthen the immune system, foster peace of mind and develop mental focus. This gentle, ancient system of health and longevity from Tibet has been passed down in an unbroken lineage from the original Master Boganathar, known in China as the sage Lao T zu for 3000 years.

Can the Infinite Abundance in your mind be in your body as well?

Tai Chi Gung includes a series of simple standing exercises that help people connect to the energy of the life force in nature consciously. It is an ancient art and science that shows students how to draw, store, project and release the chi through their spirit, mind and physical body; gradually returning it to the perfect image in which it was originally created … manifesting good on earth as it is in heaven.

Instructor: Master David Paul is the only certified Tai’ Chi Gung Master of his order living in the U.S. today. He has been practicing this profound regenerative discipline daily for more than 30 years. David is the National Director of Tai’ Chi Gung teacher training for Master Lama Rasaji, his mentor.

Cost: $45/month, (or 3 weeks concurrent) * Due to the holidays, each month will only have 3 weeks of Thursday classes.
$20 walk in.
1/3 of the class fee directly supports the Unity Spiritual Center Denver. The exercises remain consistent. New students may join anytime. Register at your first class. Scholarships are available

Grief Education Group @ Unity of Denver
Dec 19 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Letting Our Hearts Break Open
Saturdays, December 5, 2015 – January 30, 2016 (Except December 26)
9:30 – 11:00 am

In our culture we have been taught to turn away from painful emotions like sorrow, fear and despair, to deny them, and even to disguise them as if they are disgraceful. When we aren’t turning away or disguising our pain we often label it as “bad” or judge ourselves for feeling it. We have come to believe that befriending what hurts us will hurt us and suppressing and avoiding it will make us feel better when in reality any type of avoidance usually makes us feel worse.

In this eight week grief education group we will explore the “rules” we have made up about grief, learn that healing is an ongoing process, find out how other cultures view grief, and discover how to befriend our pain through meaningful discussions, deep listening (to ourselves and others), and we will also incorporate some gentle breath practices and mindful meditations. Please join me as we come to know ourselves better as we let our hearts break open and discover the healing that lies inside.

Please register by contacting Daria Leslea at 303-960-3972 or ggyt.daria@aol.com.
*Group size is limited

Daria Leslea MA, LPN, RYT/CYT is a former hospice nurse who is now in private practice as a grief therapist/yoga therapist in Littleton, Colorado focusing on grief and loss issues in all walks of life.

Sacred Healing @ Living Water Spiritual Community
Dec 20 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

UNITY’S HISTORY OF HEALING

Unity came into being because of Myrtle Fillmore’s personal experience of spiritual healing. It was Charles Fillmore’s curiosity of the cause of her successful healing which led him to research the major religious traditions of the world, resulting in his and Myrtle’s formulation of the teachings of Unity. In the early days of Unity (in the late 1880’s), the primary focus of Myrtle’s healing practice was with physical and emotional healing of those that came to her after hearing of her success.

Through the 120+ years since its founding, Unity has continued its healing tradition through prayer circles and other informal programs presented by each ministry’s spiritual leaders. These practices have been based on the principle that all healing occurs first in consciousness, then in the physical form.

Sacred Healing practitioners at Living Water Unity continue that healing tradition today. Through the research of two medical professionals, Dr. Brugh Joy and Dr. Richard Moss, and the integration of Unity’s spiritual principles by Rev. Scott Sherman, a contemporary form of energetic healing has been developed that more deeply embeds the healing tradition in Unity. Our Sacred Healing practitioners have been certified in this healing practice and are honored to serve you in assisting with your own healing.

UNITY’S SACRED HEALING PRACTICE

A key principle of Unity’s Sacred Healing practice is that each of us was created whole and healed. Our “dis-ease” comes from restrictions in the free flow of our body’s life energy. The freely flowing energy can be facilitated by the practitioner “connecting” with 12 key energy points on the body (see diagram at right).

The practitioner begins by seeing you as completely healed (as was Jesus’ practice) and holding you in unconditional love and high regard (done in the opening minutes of the sacred healing practice). The practitioner, with your permission, will lightly and progressively touch these 12 points and any other areas you request to receive special attention for healing. You may also request that the practitioner use ‘near touch’ instead. She/he will continue holding you in unconditional love, seeing you just as you were created – healed and whole.

Upon completion of the progression through the energy points, she/he will then rest in meditation and silent prayer with you for a few minutes. She/he will then begin an intuitive ‘balancing’ of your body’s energy flow followed by the ‘regression’ through the 12 energy points.

The process takes about 40 minutes to complete. You will be lying on your back, fully clothed, on a comfortable massage table the entire time.

12 ENERGY POINTS ON THE BODY

1.Heart
2.Solar Plexus
3.Mid-chest
4.Spleen
5.Navel
6.Throat
7.Hara
8.Third Eye
9.Knees
10.Crown
11.Feet
12.Transpersonal Point

Please feel free to ask the practitioner any questions or to express any anxiety you may have about the Sacred Healing practice. The practitioner’s intentions are that you feel safe, loved and open to the healing activity of God, the only Source of healing. If you have any concerns, it helps you to open to the healing process by expressing those concerns.
