Conscious Connected Breathing with Jack Fontana

Sunday May 1

4:00-6:00 pm

*Limited spots available*


Are you ready for a profound shift in your perception about life and a clear  understanding about how you are approaching it? Do you want to truly understand what you need to do to shift into more joy? If you are ready to live from an authentic place, this experience is for you.


Conscious Connected Breathing (CCB) is an ancient yogic tradition originated in India used to release negative emotions trapped in the body. 

The goal of the work is to stay present in the body as you focus your breath to release the sensations and emotions that have become trapped. This release creates the potential to transform fear to love.


The breath oxygenates the body and facilitates the release of endorphins and neuropeptides, which create a feeling of tranquility.  It helps one to let go of the past and resolve issues. This enables liberation from limiting patterns and beliefs to create a space to tap into acceptance and aliveness. 


Facilitated by Jack Anthony Fontana. Jack has been a student of breathwork since 1985. His Level IV Professional Breathwork certification was achieved in 2002 from Jim Morningstar and the Transformations Breathwork Training Program. He is an active member of the Global Professional Breathwork Alliance.  Jack has worked with over 15,000 people in breathwork practice, workshops, and retreats in New Orleans and around the country.

Book Study

Care of The Soul

Mondays Weekly

Beginning May 2

noon -1:30 pm


Are you ready to look more deeply into your life and sense the sacred in ordinary things? Join as we begin exploring a remarkable book, Care of the Soul: A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life by psychotherapist, former monk and author Thomas Moore. In it, Moore uses archetypal psychology and mythology to examine the connections between spirituality and the issues facing individuals and society. While the message of this book regarding caring for yourself and your soul is straightforward, its implications might surprise you: you are a unique, complex individual and all aspects of that complexity must be allowed, even embraced, if you are to engage life with satisfying depth.


 Facilitated by Joan McCaskill, MA, Spiritual Director.



If you wish to join us on Zoom, please register online at least 3 hours before the start of class and we will email the link prior to class.

The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Life 

Book Study

4 Wednesdays     May 4 - May 25

6 -  7:30 pm


While titled The Soul of Money, this book is really about our own soul and how and why we often eclipse it, dismiss it, or compromise it,  in our relationship with money. Be inspired as you follow author Lynne Twist on a journey detailing how to best guide the cash flowing through your life for optimum satisfaction and empowerment.  Money management can be much more than a chore; even small amounts and patterns of spending, saving and giving can be an expression of your highest priorities.  Readers will be inspired by stories of people who recreated their relationship with money and used it to feed their families while also feeding their souls.


Facilitated by Lisa Stansbury who has been leading financial mastermind groups for women focused on “The Joy of Money and Financial Freedom.”  She spent more than 30 years in health care communications and non-profit fundraising and is now completing her Certified Financial Instructor coursework with the National Financial Educators Council.

Women Remembering: Facets of the Sacred Feminine 

Tuesday May 24

5:30-6:45 pm


Join Anne Scott, an inspired leader of women's circles across the country, for an intimate monthly circle of sharing and witnessing: How do we cherish our inner light and live it into the world? How do we remember and embody our connection to the earth? The circle will include a short silent meditation of the heart, and time for sharing and discussion. 


The theme for this month's circle is 'Longing'. Anne shares:


"How do we live our longing? How do we recognize it and honor it for the power that it is? I spoke about longing with the women in the homeless shelter a number of year ago. Listening to the women, I had a sense to give their longing a name so that they could access its power. There was a huge sign of relief in the room, as if this natural power that belongs to women could live in them as well." 


Facilitated by Anne Scott, Founding Director of Dreamweather Foundation
