Being in Harmony with Nature meditation workshop

Being in Harmony (Coherent Relationship) with Nature: Introduction to Meditation Inspired by Native American Teachings

Saturday, February 22nd  1-3pm

Workshop limited to 10 people ~ $20/person (cash preferred)

Al Striplen offers holistic approaches and methods to physical and spiritual wellness (which are also practical for everyday life)—based on the instructor’s personal experience and extensive involvement in Native American communities. The “Native American Medicine Wheel” and “Ceremony” are two conceptual vehicles focused on in this participatory/interactive workshop. Many approaches to teaching and practicing meditation exist, some new and some ancient. All of these are honored.

Above all, this workshop is a safe place for beginning and experienced meditators as well as those who simply have curiosity. We will share experience, ask questions and participate in a guided meditation experience. The use of terminology will be kept simple enough for the group to understand it. All levels of experience are welcome to this respectful, appreciative and loving experience.

Willingness to consider and appreciate different beliefs (openmindedness) is the only prerequisite for this workshop. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water to drink if you wish.

Possible questions to explore:
• What is to be achieved by meditating?
• How does one experience and explore multidimensionality in everyday life?
• Does change occur and how does one recognize or perceive change?

Monday, February 24th ~ 12:00 to 1:30pm

Come sit and mend, or do handwork such as needlepoint, crochet, knitting, or finish those pesky projects. This is a chance to talk, grow, and mend ourselves as well.

This is a come and go as you like setting, it runs from 12-1:30, but we understand if you’ve got to get back to work on lunch, or have less time to share.

Bring your own teacup. BYOT or not, but it’s nice if you do. Feel free to bring your lunch, snacks, or even something to share with the group. Light snacks and tea provided.

There is nothing like repairing the old when it’s something you love more than anything you can buy new. So feel free to get it done while laughing or maybe even crying too. It a welcoming environment. Please bring your own supplies and projects. If you are on the lookout for extra supplies for your handwork or have questions, I’m sure someone can help you, or look for answers together.

Feel free to stay for a short period after to get a free mini sound clearing from a tuning fork or two.

Cost: No charge but donations always welcomed!

Happy Mending in 2020!
