The Healing and Expressive Arts
Retreats and Educational Classes
Cleaning out your body is as important as what you put in! Cleansing was practiced even in Rome and Greece as great healing practices. it is also part of most all spiritual traditions. If you are familiar with any religious tradition, they all have a cleanse of sorts before their high holy holidays. All peoples, religions, philosophies and ancient healers inspired cleansing as a practice to support making a clean vessel for your spirit. As spring approaches, it is traditionally a time to clean the body from the winter months and be clear for spring action.
Spring and fall are the usual times to do a clean out of the body. We do this in our homes, cars, offices. In spring and fall, it is just a nature urge to want to clean and clear out. It is ever greater for our body for it is our vehicle we move in. We stuff ourselves often in winter as our closets can get. It is hinders our health. No worries. We can just cleanse it as we would any other space and renew, rejuvenate and refresh ourselves.
I have done many cleanses in spring and fall over the years. I have done the Master Cleanse of water, cayenne pepper and maple syrup for one day a week for 4 weeks. I have eaten raw food for a period of time. I have done the Standard Process Cleanse for 11 days mostly and once for 21 days, I find them absolutely important to feeling clean and healthful. I also learn about how I relate to food, emotional eating patterns, what my body really needs and what works for it. I can't encourage you enough to try some form of cleanse. It is an easy healthful practice done best in spring and fall.
This year The Room has a 5 week class called the Restart Program with Carolyn Moratta, NTP, Real Food. This has no pills, shakes or supplements. It is real food and a education program regarding eating, health, digestion and well being through understanding. I invite you to join us starting March 6th! The detail are on the face book event!
I encourage you to do something for yourself. You often lose weight, find more energy, learn about your own eating and find greater health. Check out our program here! I am excited to try this real food program!
"The Room" is such a wonderful description of our space at Meadowbrook. "Room" implies space, space inside, space for growth, space for your truth, sacred space to sense your spirit of you. We created a place for all the arts, sciences, philosophies, paths to know your soul to be found together in harmony and unison. No one way to experience this you that you are is right. All paths lead to the same destination! We wanted to offer a sacred space for this all to coexist and be available in collaboration and unity. We also wanted playful, relaxing ways of living to be shared for we all have enough seriousness and complexity in our lives.
We inspire both teachers and students to find a space here that offers individuals self growth in ways less conventional than informational learning. Experience is the great teacher so we offer the arts which implies an experience. There are so many great ways of healing. of learning of yourself, of developing your wisdom and brilliance that need to be promoted. We all know the traditional or more common ways of learning and somehow, at this time it seems there is a need for something more magical, dimensional, out of the box.
En-lighten-ment is all about Lightening up! Relax, pleasure, calm, gentle, peaceful, centered, are words that we all need to experience more. Creative, playful, fun, rhythmic, sensual, embodying are ways to get these calm, lighter emotions. We all need to find more of this in our life to open ourselves to the soul or true being we are. Rush, hurried, clogged with information, scattered, behind, does not allow this wonder to find space in our lives. Filled to the brim, there is no "Room" for the juicy elixir of ourselves.
We invite you to participate, engage and be present with yourself and parts of that you here at the Room. Life may not offer you this space. If it does, maybe you are seeking to expand it or find others with this desire to expand their spaciousness, openness and tranquility as they experience peace and pieces of themselves. We have such an array of workshops from painting, sound healing and playing, movement of yoga, tai chi, dance, intuitive healing, self help modalities, health classes, woman's sisterhood and wisdom, holistic pet care, elixir remedies, woman retreats and the list goes on.
So consider our room to be a way to give yourself room to experiment, delight, play and know thyself in deeper ways that actually uplift you. Our community is growing, the healing is expanding, the opportunity is playful. Join our mailing list, engage in a class, participate in sharing your gift and support all in this great tipping point of expanded consciousness!
