Everybody has dreams at night. But few of us pay much attention to them or know what to make of them, especially when they are unsettling. This 8-week course, then, is for those who want to learn the poetic language of dreams and experience the power of dream-work to transform our lives from the depths. Most of the course will be spent working “live” with the participants’ dreams. So, come prepared to share what you dreamt last night and discover the new places that dream-work might take you.

Easy Yoga Techniques and Meditations to improve Brain Health and Longevity
with Parmatma

Tuesdays, April 16, 23, 30
3 week series, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
39D Gore St.E

Learn simple techniques which break up habitual patterns in the old brain, meditations which can bring many parts of the brain into communication with each other.  We are creatures of habit because the older unconscious parts of the brain have no learning function.
Information and techniques are drawn from the vast knowledge of Kundalini yoga as taught by Yoga Bhajan. Taught by Parmatma Leviton, Kundalini Yoga Teacher Trainer and Instructor since 1996. Web.ncf.ca/parmatma
Visualizations, contemplative practices, singing , and simple whole-body yoga exercises work to help increase the communication in the hemispheres of the brain, have a whole-brain effect, and help the body to process and integrate emotions and stress.  Learn how hand mudras  and sound effect the flow of energy in the brain.  Our hands and tongue are connected to huge areas of the brain which can be easily brought to calmness and connection.

Join Rebecca and Kevin for this powerful collective experience of sacred vibration-connecting hearts and voices with heartfelt, uplifting and sacred songs as well as modern and original chants. Together we will hold a space of silence at the end of each chant and enjoy the energetic shift we experience. You don’t need to be able to sing, its more about joining the collective song and experiencing how it feels and heals us.

Come bathe in the sweet sounds of crystal singing bowls and many other lovely sound healing instruments. Rebecca will gently guide you into a relaxed and grounded state and then
produce sweet sounds and song to carry you into a deep meditative experience.

Enjoy both offerings and light refreshments at a discounted price.


Experience an evening of relaxation and healing through yoga and the sound of the gong.  Through breath and movement we will open the body and relax the nervous system in preparation for the gong.  In addition to the beautiful gong relaxation, we will do a healing breath meditation.
The class will have a different theme depending on the phases of the moon, and will feature a double gong, two gongs played at the same time, during the time of the full moon on May 21st and June 18th.
