Sacred Heart Cave Practice - ( Trish )

The multidimensional portal of the Heart Chakra connects us with deep bodily knowing and access to our Divine Soul Blueprint. Through this guided meditation practice we will re-light your pilot light to connect you with the guidance of your Higher Self.

Vibrational Alignment and Tuning Forks - ( Trish )

Through the coherent vibration of tuning forks, we work to remove any unharmonious, dissonant, interference energy in your energy field so that you can restore your light and tune into your own unique frequency. You can expect to feel clearer, lighter, and brighter. More you.

Also used in group session for Vibrational Alignment.

Strengthening your boundaries with love and firmness in all situations

Somatic meets Culture

Intro to The Rise of the Edgewalker:

A Somatic Toolbox for Building Heart-Based Alliances

Trish De Rocher

Transforming Consciousness Founder

How do we come to the edge of each other’s battles and tenderest wounds?

How do we build social relations of equity and compassion without bypassing our collectively entangled, compromising, and often painful histories?

Trish offers to forge a new pathway through these seemingly irresolvable conundrums.

She invites a bridge between collective liberation theory and spiritual healing techniques to provide pragmatic, thoughtful, heart-centered approaches to address compounded, intergenerational cultural trauma.

Healing meets Movement

Freedom Dances with Yemaya

Freedom Dances was born from years of dancing Gabriel Roth's 5 Rhythms and

of sweating her prayers in modern tribal settings.

This Dance Medicine is infused with decades of spiritual and cultural wisdom practices.

We will free our instruments, turning our fiery or challenging expression into creative content and our contractions and inhibitions into ecstatic release.

Deep Alignment Yoga with Megan Cannon

Megan lives a life of yoga as she weaves in all 8 limbs of Yoga into her practice,

work and her greatest joy of mothering her 7 year old son.

At the age of 20, Megan asked, "God? If there is one? Please show yourself " !

Within hours was given her first translation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra.

While working on her undergrad in Special Education at Western Washington University Megan studied extensively with top Iyengar teachers developing a strong foundation in the traditional Iyengar alignment based asana. After a 2 year apprenticeship she was accepted to study with the Iyengar family in Pune, India.

Her classes suits all levels and offer impeccable guidance even for those

recovering from injuries.

She will be our morning Asana practice instructor.

comfort need, or self-sabotage comes through.
