Sound Healing Circle
Aug 17, 6:00 AM

Sound Healing Circle with Shay Nichols
www.shaynichols.com

In this class we will learn how sound can be used to nurture ourselves, creating opportunities for deep relaxation and release. The benefits of toning include relaxation, lowering blood pressure, and bringing a sense of connection and overall well-being. We will create a sound healing circle of soothing tones and healing vibrations.

Exploring Rumi's Mathnawi
Oct 04, 7:00 PM

Please Note:
We have completed the study of Book I and will begin study of Book II in the fall - beginning Wednesday October 4th.

Book_II_Rumi.jpg

The Mathnawi is a work of mystical poetry by Jalalu'din Rumi. His work is a guidebook through the twists and turns of life, leading to the clarity love.

Exploring Rumi’s Mathnawi

An ongoing collaborative learning experience to explore the mystical poetry of Rumi’s Mathnawí at Interfaith Community Sanctuary in Ballard. 1763 NW 62nd Street, Seattle, WA 98107. Class time is from 7pm – 8:30.

The beautiful poetry of Rumi has touched countless lives and has been a source of inspiration for anyone searching for a deeper awareness of what it means to be human. When the heart and mind find balance, the limitations of life are set aside, and the soul has the two wings needed for flight. The possibilities for the soul to fly freely are not limited to this physical atmosphere, the invisible realms are also open for exploration. The means of opening these doors of awareness are described in the six books of his Mathnawí, a guide-book for his journey of the spirit.

We will use this updated and corrected version of Book 1
