  SHAMANISM AND HEALING: Journeying to "Holy and Whole"
with Amejo Amyot, PhD

Sunday, September 17, 10 AM - 5 PM
Shamanism provides a pathway of sacred practical action, allowing you to build inner resources and access guidance to become a positive force in your own life and in the world. 
ARE YOU READY TO HEAL?
We all have the power inside us to bring about miracles.  We all have the power to heal.  We need to bring our minds, bodies, spirit and emotions in to balance and harmony. 

As our world comes into balance at the time of the fall equinox, we will focus intensely on healing the mind, body, emotions and spirit.  Each month we will dive deeply into one of the 4 directions, the 4 elements and the 4 aspects of our human beings.  By remembering that we came into this world as loving spirits, we will balance our lives, releasing what no longer serves us.

If you are committed to being well, this new class and the community we create, can support you in the changes that will bring harmony into your life.  Besides the 1 retreat day each month we will have a Facebook page, homework, and continuing support as we make important changes during the month.

Shamanism is the oldest healing art.  It visits other worlds, communes with spirits and performs miracles.  We learn to become the hollow bone and allow Great Originating Mystery to work through us.

(knowing how to journey is a pre-requisite and will be taught on Friday Sept 15 from 6-9pm.  $30)

  9/17, 10/22, 11/19, 12/17, all Sunday classes from 10 to 5 at Stillpoint Retreat Center.  

This 4 part series is $200 if paid in advance, or 2 payments of $110.  Class size is limited to 16.

RESTORATIVE YOGA and REIKI to RELAX and RENEW. 

Sunday, October 15 from 2 - 4 pm. $25

Registration is required. Class size is limited to assure an individualized focus.

Contact Stephanie at: scannoe@yahoo.com/518-618-7589

This class is time for you to give to yourself generously, in a spirit of receptivity, release and gratitude.  To be at ease, you’re invited to experience the replenishing effects of restorative yoga (passive poses supported by various combinations of props) with the beneficial effects of Reiki (Life Force Radiant Energy). Restorative Yoga poses are to help relax your nervous system to quiet the mind and to purify your energy systems and nurture your spirit. Reiki energy is received in tandem with restorative poses intended to promote deeper self-healing, transmutation and release. As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature's cycles are mirrored in our lives.  Fall is a season of transition, letting go, and an opportunity to practice surrender and become centered in your spirit.

Kristen Cady-Poulin has been practicing yoga since 2006. She has500 hour plus of training, studying with Lauren Toolin and the Yoga Vidya school. Through physical practices grounded in awareness of breath and spreading of consciousness, Kristen believes that yoga can meet the practitioner where they are and provide tools to move them into their brightest and best.

Stephanie Cannoe has been practicing Reiki since 2000.  She is a Master Reiki Practitioner in the Usui System of Natural Healing.  To live authentically, Stephanie believes that Self-care is absolutely essential, inspiring spiritual transformation, vitality and balance.

When you feel unbounded and free, you will begin to heal yourself.  When you are whole you are holy and you are healed. Deepak Chopra
