Threshold Open House & Equinox Celebration

 

Join us at Threshold in celebration of the Autumnal Equinox & Fall Open House

Friday September 22, 1:00 to 8:00.pm

Equinox is the time of harvest and marks a threshold of balance and unity when day and night are of equal lengths and both hemispheres are equally illuminated. It is a moment when we can re-visit the space between polarities and remember what balance and equilibrium feel like

Come visit Threshold and see our wonderful event spaces. Enjoy food provided by various restaurants, chefs and caterers  

Participate in a special mid-day yoga class and an evening gathering of song, conversation and ritual

Autumn Equinox Yoga for Balance 

with Amy Pearce-Hayden, E-RYT 500   1:00-2:00pm

FREE (donations appreciated)

Join Amy for an hour of practice designed to cultivate and connect with the energy of the Equinox; balance, itself.  Just as the earth has natural rhythms, so do each of us. During this practice we will explore the alchemy of equals: movement and stillness, strength and surrender, active and passive, and expression and potential.  

Take this time to ground and create space for the more yin and inner work of the season.

 Appropriate for all levels, all are welcome. Please bring a yoga mat.

PLEASE RSVP TO INFO@ATTHRESHOLD.COM

6pm-8pm Equinox Celebration with Samantha Sinai

Samantha will begin by offering a short meditation while playing live, original cello music. She will then lead the group in singing beautiful, repetitive melodies that layer to form a tapestry of harmonies. This type of singing, which does not require any previous singing experience, can be rejuvenating and encourages participants to express the human experience through song. 

PLEASE RSVP TO INFO@ATTHRESHOLD.COM

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.
