Rising 2013: A Raw Yogic Healing Arts Retreat
April 26-28, 2013 at Harbin Hot Springs
Spring is an auspicious time for beginnings, the return of light and blossom. Come! Shake off the cloak of winter in a forested retreat. Breathe, move, soak, hike, think. Be nourished. Unfold your wings and prepare your body and spirit to rise into spring.
Rising convenes April 26-28. For this, the twelfth annual Rising retreat, we will return to the grounds of Harbin Hot Springs. Our classes will meet in the Meadow Building and we will have full access to Harbin's hot pool, warm pools, cold plunge, sauna, hiking trails, and more.
The retreat cost includes all classes, meals, indoor/outdoor camping, and Harbin access. If you have questions about the retreat in general or health concerns in regard to yoga, feel free to email Kristie, or call 415 863 1821. The cost of the retreat is $395.

Reiki - Second Level Practitioner Training/Immersion
June 21-23, 2013 at Home
Second level Reiki training is open to anyone who has already taken First level training. Reiki Two gets richer, finer, and more esoteric, focusing on use of three Reiki Symbols to increase power, invoke emotional clearing, clear or protect space and objects/beings, and the sweet depth of non-local healing. Locality refers to time as well as space; we will bring healing to our child selves, our beloved dead, support our future selves, and more. We will also discuss guides and guidance, have time for whatever questions have come up for you in your practice, and deepen your connection to source and the power of current you can carry. This will be a powerful healing for all.

Why and How We Practice
Once a psychiatrist asked Suzuki Roshi about consciousness.
"I know nothing about it," Suzuki said. "I just try to teach my students how to hear the birds sing."
