Live your miraculous life! Miracles take us out of the predictable and into the extraordinary where frequent serendipities, personal breakthroughs, and joy become the new normal. We are all capable of living a miraculous life. 

The  Fall Quarter is all about healing, breaking free from old patterns, finding the courage to change and learning to feel safe, even in the midst of change.


Some things we will focus on this Fall quarter:

  • Are you experiencing a high degree of change in your life?
  • Do you feel stalled and ready for change?
  • Do you have difficulty with the darkness of winter months?
  • Are you prone to winter time colds and flus or are you dealing with a serious illness?
  • Do you have an interest in healing or in what lies beyond the veil of death?
  • Do you have trouble letting go of control and trusting the process of life?
  • Would you like to feel safe and at peace in the midst of change?
  • Are you ready to move beyond transient successes to achieve true personal mastery?

If so, the spiritual work of fall may be particularly relevant to you.

Sessions include information and exercises for applying spiritual principles to everyday life and an interactive opportunity to ask questions and receive personal input. Join any time. Drop in or attend regularly.


Facilitated by Lynn Woodland, creator of the Miracles Course, is an international teacher and human potential expert whose particular expertise is in what gives rise to miracles and in teaching ordinary people to live extraordinary lives so that miracles become, not just possible, but natural.

Meditation is highly beneficial for emotional and physical well-being and overall health.
If you think you can’t meditate, think again! Whether you are new to meditation or a long-time practitioner, come experience community connection, feel more centered and grounded with a sense of inner peace. 
Deepen into your meditation practice through a mix of gentle movement, silent and guided meditation and visualization.

Seasonal Surrender 

Saturday, October 28

9:30-11:00 am

At The Red Shoes


Just as the leaves surrender to the earth, this transitional season invites us to explore the art of surrender within ourselves.

Seasonal Surrender is a Yin Yoga experience designed to align you with the natural rhythms of autumn. Our practice during this season encourages a gentle release, letting go of the tensions and stresses that no longer serve us. In surrender, we discover our equilibrium or balance within the ebb and flow of life. During this rejuvenating session, you will be guided through deep yin poses, mindful breathwork, and meditation, allowing you to explore the gentle art of letting go. 


Whether you're a seasoned yogi or new to the practice, we invite you to come as you are, surrender to the wisdom of autumn, and find your inner equilibrium.


Yin Yoga is a practice that is best done when the body is cold. If possible, ease into your day and avoid vigorous activity. This will ensure your muscles aren't warmed up and you fully experience the benefits of the practice. Additionally, Yin Yoga relies heavily on the use of props. Feel free to bring blankets, blocks, bolsters, cushions, journals, and any other comfort items, as limited quantities are available. 


Faciltated by TK, TaKara Abuwi, of On My Mat Yoga with TK, who earned her 200-hour YTT at Yoga Renew Yoga Teacher Training and specializes in accessible, beginner-friendly flows. She co-founded the LTSG Yoga Retreat in 2017 and witnessed firsthand the healing power of sisterhood. She believes that when we “get into our body and out of our head” we emerge more healed versions of ourselves.





Sound Immersion 

Sunday, October 29

3:00-4:30 pm

At The Red Shoes


Sink into the sounds and frequencies of Alchemy Crystal Bowls, Tibetan bowls, drums, and other healing instruments. Give yourself the gift of allowing your body to enter a calming space where your nervous system can move into the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state. This state promotes a more focused mind through relaxation and the conservation of energy.


Note: Dress comfortably, and consider bringing a blanket, pillow, etc.



Facilitated by Lissee Spiller, licensed massage therapist, Level 2 Group Sound Healing with Tony Nec’s Academy of Sound Healing, Level 2 Alchemy Crystal Bowls with Sacred Science of Sound through Jeralyn Glass and Crystal Cadence.
