Free Intro - Trauma Sensitive Yoga - small sessions for women (Embody)

What might it feel like to breathe easily again, and to feel comfortable in your body, after experiences of complex trauma?
Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an adjunct therapy for complex trauma or treatment-resistant PTSD caused by neglect, emotional or physical abuse, sexual assault, systems of oppression, or other violence— in other words: for trauma that happens within human relationships.
TCTSY can help improve:

 A sense of calm, safety, well-being, and self-control
 Emotional and physical flexibility
 Connection with and kindness towards your body
 The ability to make choices and take action

In this free presentation for women*, you'll learn about some of the causes and common symptoms of complex trauma, and about the particular ways that TCTSY addresses those symptoms. You'll also have an opportunity to experience a short chair-based TCTSY practice, appropriate for people of all abilities. For those who want to work more with TCTSY, there will be a chance to register for a five-week small-group class for women, offered on a sliding scale basis beginning the week after the presentation.
TCTSY was developed at the Trauma Center of the Justice Resource Institute by David Emerson (author of Overcoming Trauma with Yoga) in collaboration with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk (author of The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, mind, and body in the healing of trauma), and other clinicians, yoga teachers, and people living with complex trauma.

Envisioning Threshold - Accessing Inner Wisdom through Guided Imagery

Summer Solstice Celebration - Envisioning Threshold: Accessing our Inner Wisdom through Guided Imagery
Monday, June 19, 6:30 - 8:30 pm & Sunday July 9, 10:00 am - 12:00 Noon
Our next visioning circle will focus on discovering what draws us to be a part of Threshold, the creative ways we can contribute to its vitality, and how we envision its evolution. Although we’ve touched on these topics in our initial talking circles, this time we’ll be using a guided imagery approach, which involves listening to a gentle narrative that invites our right-brained, intuitive side to express itself. 
Participating in guided imagery not only expands our perspective on a given topic, but also elicits a physical relaxation response, the feeling of mental calmness, and increased endorphin levels.
Everyone who has walked through the doors at Threshold is invited to join our circle along with those who have participated in the gatherings that began on the Spring Equinox. We continue to honor the seasons, by scheduling the guided imagery circles in preparation for the Summer Solstice and in celebration of the first full moon after the Solstice.
The circle will be facilitated by Ann Aswegan RN, MS Ed, who is an avid fan of Threshold, a dream consultant, and holistic health educator. Her masters thesis focused on the benefits of guided imagery. She is the author of "Awakening to the Song of Your Self: Revelations by Day & Dreams by Night". This event is free and refreshments will be served. Please RSVP if you plan to come info@atthreshold.com.

The World is Your Oracle: Divinatory Practices for Tapping Your Inner Wisdom with Nancy Vedder-Shults, Ph.D. - Week 4 of 4-week series - Embody

Week 4 of 4-week series

The World is Your Oracle: Divinatory Practices for Tapping Your Inner Wisdom with Nancy Vedder-Shults, Ph.D.

In this interactive workshop, we will use some of the divinatory methods that Nancy has gathered in her new book _The World Is Your Oracle_ to explore a number of ways that ancient, indigenous, and contemporary cultures have tapped into the wisdom that resides within each of us. After eliciting questions that need answers, we will invite our inner wisdom to give us answers. As opposed to the pre-programmed answers provided by Tarot, the I Ching, or runes, the techniques we will investigate employ the three major intuitive senses: the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Such embodied oracles help us to turn inward in order to develop deep listening, deep vision, and deep sensing of our flashes of insight. Opening to our inner depths in this way allows us to set priorities, meet challenges, and find creative solutions. Such practices can strengthen us in our insight, determination, and courage, empowering us on our spiritual paths as well as in our daily life. This workshop is an ideal introduction for those who are just beginning to perform oracles as well as an opportunity for those experienced with divination to find fresh inspiration. Come and sink deeply into your inner knowing, fine-tune your life’s trajectory, and renew yourconnection with Spirit.

Nancy Vedder-Shults, Ph.D., is the author of _The World is Your Oracle_ (Fair Winds Press: April, 2017). The thealogical columnist for SageWoman magazine and blogger for Tikkun Daily, Matirfocus, and Feminism and Religion, she has offered spiritual growth keynotes, workshops, and classes since 1987. Nancy honed her speaking and workshop skills in the emerging field of Women’s Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her muse then nudged her out of academia to record Chants for the Queen of Heaven, a CD of goddess chants from around the world and Singing the Promise, a live recording. Check out her website at http://www.mamasminstrel.net.

Sliding fee: $100 - $125 -includes a copy of the book The World Is Your Oracle
