Watercolor Class - Learn Another Way To Go With The Flow with Mary Somers Next held on Thu, Aug 30, 2018 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Thu Aug 30, 2018 - Thu Oct 4, 2018
Using a wet on wet approach we’ll learn to “let it flow” more as we begin to paint simpler designs such as trees, people and animals. This 6-week class is for people who have never painted and painters who need to loosen up their painting and learn to let go and let flow.

Mary Somers is a member of The Madison Art Guild and Wisconsin Regional Art Association. She has won several awards and recently joined 14 or so artists where she displayed in the Stoughton Art Walk. She has shown her work at The Agora Art Fair and the Art Fair on the Square.

Bring the following supplies to the first class:

Board or plastic to paint on
Watercolor paint: aquamarine blue, and cadium red light
One medium size brush, round or flat
140 lb watercolor paper(may purchase in class)
Pencil and eraser

Future classes will need yellow paint: New Gamboge and Naples yellow. We will discuss a large group purchase in first class to save money on shipping.

A great place to buy supplies is Cheap Joe’s www.cheapjoes.com

If you already have supplies, please bring any colors and brushes you own.

Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm - students who need more time are welcome to stay until 3:00pm

Cost: $100 plus supplies
Limit: 16 students

Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga with Amy Speed Thu, Aug 30, 2018 at 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Add some balance to your practice with Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga! Let Perennial Yoga Instructor Amy Speed steer you and a group of your closest friends through an adventure on the Yahara river. The one and a half hour journey commences on the shores of the Yahara River in McFarland between Lake Waubesa and Lake Kegonsa. Boards are provided so all you will need to bring is a sense of curiosity and maybe some sunscreen. Safety instructions and paddleboard tips will be given before boarders push off in search of that perfect practice spot on the river. Once grounded (figuratively speaking) Amy, a 200 RYT teacher, certified SUP yoga teacher and founder of SUP Girl Adventures will lead the all-levels yoga class. After the class, boarders can splash about, bask in the rays, strike their fanciest pose and have their pictures taken before paddling back to land. There is no better way to spend a Wisconsin summer night in nature with your community!
 
Cost: $40
 
Groups meet at the public access to the Yahara across from 6710 Sleepy Hollow Rd, McFarland. 
Online registration is full or unavailable. Please contact us for details.

AQUARIAN GROUP SADHANA with Amy Walden Sat, Sep 8, 2018 at 5:30 am - 8:00 am
Join us the second Saturday of each month for the Aquarian Group Sadhana. Yogi Bhajan spoke of a time in history when our trust in the technology of Kundalini Yoga would be put to the test.

We gather in the amrit vela (early morning hours) for a devotional group practice – to recite Japji, move with the breath and chant the Aquarian Mantras. This monthly event is free and open to all. Please arrive by 5:15 am to get settled. The practice starts promptly at 5:30 am and ends at 8:00 am. We adjourn to the Surya Café for breakfast and fellowship.

Ocean Of Devotion with Preston Klik Sun, Sep 9, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Preston plays a 36-inch Heart Gong, as well as crystal & Himalayan bowls, ocean & frame drums, Indian swarmpura, chimes, and more to provide a dynamic auditory experience.

Preston Klik combines his love of sound with his passion for spirituality in his true Calling: Sound Healing-Meditation. As a Gong-Whisperer, he creates sacred space so others enter a Portal of Higher Consciousness. He lives with his wife Emily in their Temple Synphorium, Evanston IL
★ Preston is a follower of many teachers and paths: Amma, Christ, Ken Wilber, Buddha, David Richo, Adi Da, Adyashanti, Dalai Lama, Eckhart Tolle, Gandhi, Landmark Forum, Mother Teresa, Rumi, TM.

CIRCLE OF SACRED ACTIVISM with Megan Grace Wed, Sep 12, 2018 at 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm

To be a Sacred Activist is to be and to continually work towards becoming a force of compassion in action. Sacred Activism at Perennial, which Perennial's founder Megan Grace is mid-wifing, is destined to become part of the bedrock of our community. Megan believes her soul's purpose in creating Perennial was to contribute to, in her own small but hopefully significant way, the birth of a community filled with passionate people who are ready and able to co-create with the Divine. Our monthly Sacred Activism Circle brings together women and men who are ready to ignite and nurture their healing energy and transmit it out into the world in the form of loving thoughts, words and actions.

 

What happens at a Circle?

 

As you enter our Earth Studio you'll step into a large grounding bowl that sends a healing and opening vibration through you. Then you'll lie down, propped by bolsters and blankets, and take a journey deep into yourSelf with a Yoga Nidra and loving kindness meditation guided by Megan Grace. Throughout your journey Shari Henning sends the enchanting and healing sounds of singing bowls into the space.

 

Yoga Nidra is the "sleep" of yoga. It is a very relaxing and grounding practice that does not include any physical practice.

 

Cost:  No Charge | These Circles are part of Perennial's Sacred Activism initiative

The Seat Of The Soul with Tracy Traeder Next held on Wed, Oct 3, 2018 at 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm
This enrollment runs from Wed Oct 3, 2018 - Wed Oct 10, 2018
With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that uses power as the ability to manipulate and control—external power—into a species that understands power as the alignment of the personality with the soul—authentic power. Our evolution requires each of us to make the values of the soul our own: harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life. With his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows how infusing our actions with compassion and trust gives them meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the emerging values of the spirit are changing marriages into soulful partnerships, psychology into thoughtful analysis, and deeply affecting our everyday lives.
