                                                Keith and Jane  $75 

Hart Work can carry you to a deep reflective inner space for exploration of your psyche. This experience involves lying on a sleeping bag or mat, closing your eyes, breathing deeply and listening to music for about 90 minutes. The music is your trajectory and breath is the vehicle. After the music is completed you will go to the art table and capture as much as you can with art supplies that will be provided for you. You will tap into your emotional spiritual physical aspects for healing. Bring a sleeping bag or mat from home along with a pillow and may a blanket to be most comfortable.

                                                                    HART DANCE

                                                June 6    9 am – 3 pm 

                                                 Keith and Jane  $75 

Hart Dance is a new experience the keith and Jane co-created. It is a combination of Integrative Breathwork and trance Dance. You will begin lying on your mat for about 30 to 45 minutes breathing deeply listening to meditative music that opens and aligns your upper Chakras. The music will change as you open themwith your breath. When you reach the fourth Chakra you will stand up while the Guardians remove the bedding. At that point the music will carry you into movement. You will dance your experience into your body for about 30 minutes. After the music has opened all of your Chakras and aligned them the music will shift again and you will go to the art tables to capture your experience with art supplies that we will furnish. We will break bread together and then process each participants experience. Remember to bring bedding or a sleeping bag from home for the first part of the experience.

                                         A Matter of Timing                                       

     As we have all experienced there is our timing and the timing of Universe. Most often those are not congruent. As human beings we very often exhibit  impatience with everything around us when we don’t get what we want when we want it… With that said let’s look at things we can do to make sure we stay balanced as Univers unfolds. By the way this is not to advocate for predestination. I think wiht free will we have the right and ability to change anything in our lives whether it’s a healthy or unhealthy change. 

     Sometimes when w are on the rush we forget that there may be other things to consider. So often we leave behind our sense of otherness and step on the toes of our fellows which inturn results in retaliation. Maybe it is becoming time for us to remember to check out everything in our reality before we take that step.

     As we move more into community we may discover the incredible opportunity to actualy manifest the hopes and dreams we have carried with us our entire lifetimes.

    For the last twenty four years, David Austin Sky has enjoyed life as a full time speaker, trainer, and storyteller. He tells stories to share life’s wisdom. His daughter says that he puts wings on simple words. Audiences say he is a child in a bald man suit.
    David has a Masters Degree from the Methodist Theological School. He is the author of See the Forest, Hear the Trees: The Art of Storylistening and Sky Stories: A Storybook for Grownups. David has been a counselor, a bar band musician, and a janitor at Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum. Maybe he cannot hold a steady job.
    Dave spent many years playing music in bars to rowdy crowds full of delightful characters. This experience gave him a perspective to write about drinking, relationships, and confusion. The people he tells stories about are based on folks he has met, or thinks he has met in the dim lit halls of taverns and churches. Regardless of the place, the people have their stories.
Participants will be able to:

Apply a new method of hearing the client unheard stories 

Identify the stories that influence the client behavior  

Create questions that lead to awareness and to insight into their issues 

Present new stories of hope and change that tap into the clients core beliefs 

     Everyone tells stories that they cannot hear. We talk about changes, loss, addictions, and our unresolved issues. We will continue to tell the story or act it out, until we have awareness and a new story.  This workshop will give helpers the tools that lead to new stories for change, healing and growth. This program is for helping clients of all ages, economic and educational levels. We all tell and listen to stories. 

This will change how you listen.  This will change how you help.
