"The Way Is Within" Meditation Classes with Marcia Flory, R.N.
Usui Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Spiritual Counselor & Minister with The Voice for Love

A simple way to take control of our life and to heal our mind, body, emotions and soul is to meditate. By learning to quiet our mind and go within through the techniques of meditation; great wisdom in the form of inner truth and peace can be achieved. A practice of scheduling as little as 10 - 20 minutes per day to focus on our breathing, to monitor our thoughts, to count our blessings will make a positive difference in our health. Meditation lowers the blood pressure, reduces anxiety and depression, decreases chronic pain, dissipates anger, increases cognitive ability and brings a deeper understanding of self awareness and life purpose.

Angels are defined as messengers from God. Many believe that members of the Angelic Kingdom are with us as we are born into this life time and accompany us throughout eternity. The angel workshop will cover various techniques in identifying and communicating with your angels as well as the Archangels. Participants will also learn to connect to the guardian angels of another to assist in the process of mutual forgiveness, protection and healing.  Flory teaches that we are never alone on our life journey. By connecting to the angels participants will experience their divine patience and wisdom as they assist you in fulfilling your life purpose. She believes that much strength and healing are available to us as we learn to quiet our minds and go within to connect to the Holy Source.

Learning the Art of Compassion & Forgiveness

Saturday, March 21st, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Fee: $33 YWCA members/Community members

Participants in this class will learn to let go of the past, identify the dangers of the blame game, recognize depleting energies and learn techniques to align with the heart and soul.  Flory states that forgiving does not mean forgetting. It is realizing that you cannot change the past but you can choose to change how you are currently reacting or responding to life's challenges.  The negative thoughts we generate for imagining retribution or revenge, distract us from our chances to live life fully. Workshop participants will practice the focused intent required to gain the strength and willingness to stop replaying the negative tapes in one's memory.
