The center is available for day-long or part-day yoga, meditation, movement, kirtan, similar classes or rented for individual healing sessions. The room has an attached commercially certified kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is small but can be used for cooking classes with drop-cloths & mats to protect the flooring – for more details ask about our kitchen rental policy.

LISTEN WITH YOUR HEART: A MUSICAL MINDFULNESS WORKSHOP

June 2 and July 7
10:00am- 2:30pm $50 / class
All levels of experience welcome. No musical instrument skills required.
In this workshop we will playfully explore the musical nature of the world we live in and our own ‘inner music.’ Together we will discover different levels of listening and explore how to ‘feel’ sound – and silence. Through hands-on exercises with simple instruments, alone and together, you will learn to practice a musical mindfulness that will deepen your capacity for listening as well as strengthen your communication and interaction skills.
Instructors Karoline Hausted and Mark Davis bring together studies in Contemplative Musicianship and Kundalini yoga with years of experience as songwriters and musicians, most recently in the acclaimed bands To Wake You and Shadowlands.
For more info and/or signing up – please write to Karoline: lillebrand@gmail.com
