KYWC April 2023 News and Events

Happy April 🙂 There may still be snow on the ground and a chill in the air, but that’s not stopping us from being excited about our spring/summer season. This quote says it well : )

Spring is when you feel like whistling, even with a shoe full of slush.” – Doug Larson

Here’s what’s going on at the Center:

  • Yoga classes, Healing Sunday, drumming, and the chanting workshop. See the schedule below.
  • The raised beds for our community garden have arrived and the organic seeds have been sent to the correctional facility for planting. We have much more planning to do.
  • As promised, Steve and Val have randomly chosen two new (or re-upping) members for a free oracle card reading. Those two folks are…Michelle G. – a reading with Steve and Cheryle C. – a reading with Val. Congratulations 🙂
  • We are compiling survey results to help us plan classes, workshops, and events for the year.

If you haven’t filled out the survey yet, we still want to hear from you – please and thank you!

Chanting Workshops

This workshop series with Clancy Cox is for all who dream of a more joyful and easy relationship with their voice. Clancy will guide you through joyful vocal exercises to support lung capacity and health. At each workshop, we will learn a different Sanskrit chant. This is a wonderful opportunity to find and explore the beauty and power of your voice beyond speaking. No prior experience is needed. Cost $25 per session.

Why learn and practice chanting?

Did you know that chanting “OM”, Sanskrit, or spiritual words can raise your vibration, calm your mind, and decreases stress? Chanting can also boost your energy, facilitate healing, improve your mood, and slow cellular aging, among other benefits. (Learn more here)
