This may be very helpful for anyone who experiences back, neck or other body aches. And it is for anyone who is curious about life, movement, habits, mindfulness, personal growth, how to work with pain, and changing their self-image. This is a gentle movement class with a focus on how we are doing specific guided movements not doing anything "perfectly." No experience necessary, just bring your curiosity.

Radical Closeness for the People: Peer Counseling

RADICAL CLOSENESS FOR THE PEOPLE: PEER COUNSELING LEVEL 1 SERIES

A 9 week series taught by Rythea Lee and Samantha Burnell

Sundays September 15th-November 17th (No class on Nov. 3rd), 6:00-8:00pm

We live in a society of isolation and separation, where feelings are considered too much and few people have the skills to help out or even listen. As peer counselors for 20+ years, we have seen the value of creating a network of counselors as part of every day mental and emotional health.

Human beings are meant to live in community, to be in relationships where true intimacy can flourish, where pain and joy are shared equally with compassion. This work aims to create a context for developing deep and lasting connection through time. This workshop will introduce the practice of peer counseling, fostering a safe space, tools, and theory to begin building enduring peer support. This workshop creates an experience that helps you move forward in:

1. Not feeling alone in your life
2. Allowing feelings to cycle through without getting blocked
3. Having new insights that move your life out of stuckness
4. Creating relationships that support you to have true intimacy
5. Waking up emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, and creative avenues of expression
6. Gain ability to act and choose with confidence 

Join us and start using tools to create more intimacy in your life.

Early Registration $280 Deadline August 25th- you must pay at least a $100 by this date. $300 after that date.

If you have been in crisis recently or currently, please email us before you register to discuss if this course is appropriate for you.

Yoga Lab with Molly Kitchen

Molly Kitchen

Molly Kitchen

In this all-bodies-welcome class, we explore asana, pranayama and philosophical themes as they relate to real life experiences. We’ll use the yoga mat as a “laboratory” to explore not only physicality, functional movement, and proprioception, but also the more subtle realms of mind and heart. Expect plenty of invitations to deep inner listening, smart out-of-the-box approaches to postures, and a lovely community of supportive fellow practitioners.

Tuesday from 6:15-7:30, September 3—December 17, 2019.

$15 Drop-In; $180 Semester Pass; Sliding Scale 10-$15 available as needed -- cash preferred; you can also pay online: https://www.mollykitchen.com/northampton-class-pass
