Just Think and Move with Joe Schaefer Sun, Jul 16, 2017 at 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

What is Nike's slogan? - "Just do it."  Going about your day unconsciously like this is very dangerous thing to do.  When we "Just do it" our bodies end up on auto-pilot and habits of movement and posture begin to distort us.  The Alexander Technique is a tool to avoid this.  It's movement and reeducation.  This workshop will explore the use of the body in everyday movements and its impact of your life.  Forget about Nike and "Just Think and Move."
 
Joe is an AmSAT-certified Alexander Technique teacher who wishes to make movement easier for everyone. After finishing his training in Baltimore, he moved back to the area where he currently freelances with the Alexander Technique, giving workshops at local universities for musicians and dancers. Joe enjoys making music, being a musician by trade and heart, and open water swimming.

Indigenous peoples all over the world honor mother earth Gaia. Their medicine people can communicate directly with her. Come learn who Gaia is and her role in the evolution of our planet.

Most people have no awareness of the amount of Love that Earth Mother has for us and how healing it is be bonded closely with her. We will tap into that Love through ceremony, meditation, and discussion during the workshop.
 
Gaia is calling us to remember her and come back into balance on her. She wants us to come home to her. We can do this by our thoughts, actions and from our hearts. There is a New World birthing during these interesting times and we are all called to be midwives to it by reconnecting with Gaia.
