Latin Dance to Awaken Your Body and Soul

Fridays, July 15 to September 2, 2022

7 to 8:30 pm in the Community Room

Whether you love to dance or have two left feet, come and enjoy learning how to dance. Professionally trained at Arthur Murray and other dance schools, your instructor loves teaching people the joy of dancing.

Zula will teach you the Cha Cha and Samba and give you new ways of moving your body and connecting with sound that will help you feel your soul and enjoy dancing even more. There will be some hip action, some arm styling, and fun, fun, fun!!
Please wear shoes that are not sticky-soled, like sneakers. Leather works best, you will need to be able to move without getting stuck on the floor. Ladies, you do not need to wear heels, unless you wear them regularly, if you do wear heels, we recommend lower heels.
You DO NOT need a partner for the class. Come with the intention of having fun together.

Heart Practices for Challenging Times

4 Wednesdays

August 31 - September 21, 2022

6:30 to 7:30 pm - on Zoom

The Brahmaviharas (or “Four Immeasurables”) are some of the oldest known meditations from the Buddhist tradition and include loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity. These practices train the heart to remain kind, joyful, and balanced towards all beings, including ourselves. In addition, they build insight and resilience and are powerful supports we can leverage to respond skillfully in difficult times such as those we currently face, individually and collectively. This 4-week online class will include an introduction to each heart practice followed by guided meditation and discussion. This class is suitable for beginners or more advanced meditators.
