Initiation into Intimacy

with Reverend Adriane Wolf and Joseph Rolley

Free Talk: ‘Invitation to Intimacy’ – Friday, November 4th from 7-9 pm  

Retreat: Sat., November 5th from 9-5 pm & Sun., November 6th from 10 am-3 pm Cost: $165 / $195 after 10/1

What is it that stops the flow of intimacy? Do you have, in this present moment the quality and depth of intimacy with self, others and the cosmos that totally satisfies your heart?

~Experience profound intimacy ~Reclaim your power ~ Reconnect to source ~Learn to communication with authenticity and kindness ~Balance and heal the divine feminine and masculine ~Begin to heal the wounds of our ancestral lineage ~Release the shame, blame, guilt that divides us ~Open the heart to give and receive love

Initiation into Intimacy is an invitation to explore and answer these questions at a level that few dare to inquire. You will be taken on a journey that fuses shamanic journey, sound healing, holotropic breathwork and self inquiry. You will discover a profound level of intimacy by healing the divine masculine and feminine within.

Member Appreciation Day

Friday, October 21 from 6-8 pm

Potluck at 6 pm, Gratitude Gathering at 7 pm FREE

Please join us for a potluck and Gratitude Gathering! Everyone is welcome!

As we shift into new dimensions in the Universe, many of us are beginning to become more aware of these new energies. We can see our lives changing drastically, on both an individual and collective scale. We are beginning to see how much more change is about to come in the months ahead.The earth is trying to ground us while we start a new evolutionary journey through the galaxies. At times we may experience intense emotions of sadness, anger, and fear. It is our job as light beings to come together and help expand this light to each other and to people and areas that need it. At this gathering, we will be discussing and envisioning how to bring positive change, as a whole and individuals, to our community. We will be realigning our energies into one unified body. We will be combining the vibration of sound, love, and harmony and expanding it around us. There will be an organic potluck to start the evening off, followed by singing, dancing, and meditation. Come sing, come dance, come connect. Please bring an organic dish to share with the group as well as any singing bowls, drums, crystals or musical instrument.

LOCAL – A Short Documentary

Do you know where your food comes from?

In the past ten years, the organic food industry has become big business and consumers have been left wondering exactly what the word “Organic” means and how they can really know what they’re eating.

With the rise of farmer’s markets and more and more chefs sourcing their ingredients from local farms, consumers are now able to meet and talk to the people who are growing their food.

LOCAL discusses the rise of the local food movement, the challenges of sourcing locally and how it’s become a growing part of the Austin, Texas food scene. To see the other films or to learn more about the project, visit the website at:

Immediately following the movie there will be a short discussion lead by Kate Ramsay.

$650 (www.kiddingaroundyoga for available discounts)
You are invited to a Kidding Around Yoga free family class:
Kidding Around Yoga, an international children’s yoga and stress management teacher training program, is excited to be in Grand Junction, teaching participants skills to improve children’s health, behavior, and lives. Kidding Around Yoga instructors share games, stories, and specially composed music to get children of all ages and abilities motivated and moving. Techniques presented during Kidding Around Yoga’s Teacher Training program build strength, flexibility, a sense of calm, and interpersonal skills in children. “Our program provides educators, parents, therapists, and coaches methods to teach Yoga and stress management techniques to children so they can find peace on the inside, regardless of what is happening around them,” says Haris Harini Lender, founder of Kidding Around Yoga. Lender developed Kidding Around Yoga to include breathing instruction, relaxation techniques, strengthening and stretching Yoga poses, and of course, imagination. According to Lender, “The magic of Kidding Around Yoga is our creativity and music.” Our blend of independent online learning (OKAY) and 2 day face-to-face intensive training is a fantastic way to learn to teach kids in only a weekend. KAY graduates have the practical knowledge to begin teaching yoga to children and families immediately, whether in a yoga studio, a rec center, or school classroom. Nothing gives us more joy than to watch our trainees sharing the gift of yoga with the children in their communities.
About Amanda Jones
Amanda James is an accidental yogi. She didn’t find yoga until after her children were born and she began looking for a way to reconnect with her breath, tame her anxiety, and feel stronger in her own body. Even after stumbling through her first yoga class, she was hooked on the positivity and energy created during practice. Amanda quickly decided that sharing such a powerful experience was her path and she graduated from her 200-hour Hatha yoga teacher training in 2007. She immediately began teaching beginner’s yoga and soon found that her own children loved to “play yoga” with her. Being an elementary and middle school teacher herself, Amanda embarked on what would become her passion – yoga for children and families. She was one of the earliest graduates from Kidding Around Yoga and immediately put it to use, volunteering to teach yoga to “at-risk” students at her children’s school and starting a popular family yoga class in her community. Amanda is such a believer in Kidding Around Yoga’s methods, music, and joyful energy that she is now a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher, the writer for KAY, as well as part of the marketing team. But her favorite professional role is that of KAY trainer, because she knows that the lessons and practices that children learn through play during a Kidding Around Yoga class can change their world. So the more KAY teachers she reaches, the more peaceful, happy children there will be for our future.

Cuddle Yoga with Leah Kenyon & Deborah Rosenbaum, MT

Living in Tantra – Community Tantra Education
Saturday, 11/12 from 7 pm – 8:30 pm
A safe, light-hearted space for adults to receive the therapeutic benefits of platonic touch, Cost: Love Offering Cuddle Yoga is a safe, light-hearted space for adults to exchange the therapeutic benefits of non-romantic touch. It’s specially designed for people who give, give, give, and need to recharge: mental health professionals, educators, massage therapists, parents, people in strained relationships, singles. If you need to refuel, this workshop is for you. Numerous studies show the physical and mental health benefits of touch, but many people are not getting the touch they need to stay healthy. In Cuddle Yoga you’ll experience greeting hugs and two-handed handshakes; hand, shoulder, and foot massage and back scratching; longer embraces while answering meaningful and fun questions; quiet snuggling during mindful breathing; arms-around-waist in a circle; back-to-back meditations, and the Spoon Train-lining up on the floor for a restful, comforting group snuggle.
Students who reserve ahead receive two thank you gifts from Leah and Deborah. These gifts are not available at the door: $40 off suggested donation for a 2-hour, in-home private Tantra session for singles (regular $120), and 20% off full body massage with cranio-sacral therapy (regular price $80). Living in Tantra is donation-based. Tantra is the art of using pleasure in a conscious way to awaken to the divine beings we are; it’s the practice unconditional love.
