YAMUNA BODY ROLLING - Heal, Rejuvenate and Tone!

with Andy Dillon

Tuesdays, starting March 1st, Main class is from 7 to 8:15pm; at 6:30 there will be a free preview for people who are interested, but have never heard of body rolling A 75 minute class is for all levels. Introductory class price: $12 (first class free if you bring a copy of this page.)

Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) consists of a ball, the floor and you. Once you learn the basics of YBR you can use the color-coded YBR Balls for targeting specific muscle groups. Breathe deeper, free your back and expand your chest, relax and elongate your neck, improve your focus. These are the results from a Yamuna Body Rolling session, just you and the ball. Yamuna Body Rolling works the way a hands-on practitioner works - only using a ball. The ball replaces hands as it moves on muscles to stretch them, dislodge tension and discomfort, increase blood flow, and promote healing. The self-directed healing you learn in a YBR class is something you can take anywhere. Balls are provided. Bringing your own yoga mat is optional, not necessary. Advance notice is helpful.

Opening act by
Healing Earth's Native American Flute Circle!

 Al's  original music and unique sound cross age boundaries from young people to seniors. He is a classically trained musician and his original compoositions are based upon his years of study and influences ranging from Native American to Celtic.
Al will open the concert with a Dispacho Ceremony: a beautiful, sacred give-away ceremony that helps bring a family, community, individual and the Earth into balance and harmony. Despacho is based on the universal law of reciprocity: always give love and always receive love. When we do not adhere to this law, disharmony and imbalance result. In this ceremony, a bundle is created containing loving offerings and prayers for balance and healing. Items representing love, such as flowers, candy, seeds, chocolate, incense and healing herbs are placed in the bundle along with prayer leaves called "kintus". Once the bundle is created, all those present are blessed with it, and then it is burned as an offering to the Creator, the Earth and our spirit helpers.

ASCENSION KIVAS               

with Laurie Pentell

Sundays, March 13th, 11:11 AM $11

The ultimate evolutionary event—a major metamorphosis—is currently underway. It’s been called the “quantum leap,” “shift of the ages,” “great awakening,” “end of time,” and “ascension” among others. Whatever you choose to call it, it’s HUGE.


This “Light” (divine essence) is active and ascending—up through the earth AND through us. It’s triggering profound activations in our DNA and energy systems—sometimes in ways beyond imagination. If you aren’t personally aware of this yet, you will be soon.  No one is exempt from this quantum shift. It is all-inclusive.


The new Deep Light Ascension Kivas are bi-monthly meetings where we will align with this “living light.”  We will peer into an ascended future for glimpses of a new world, and optimize our experience of this phenomenal time.  These kivas (sacred circles) are respectfully offered in the spirit of preparing for a deeply healed future, for by doing so, we affirm it and bring it into being. This is a global as well as a profoundly personal event. Veils are dropping, dimensions are blending, mysteries are emerging from the dark. We are emerging from the dark. The long-prophesied Age of Light is upon us, and we are rising to meet it. “Mere mortals” are becoming Awakened Ones.  If this speaks to the mystic within you, come to the kiva and flow with Deep Light. Kivas meet from 11:11-12:30, twice a month at HER. March will have only one Kiva. More info is at; email to:; 773.465.0464.

Special Screening of Award-Winning Documentary:
Peaceable Kingdom

A film Dr. Jane Goodall has called
“A masterpiece.”

Friday, March 18th, 7:00pm 
Free and open to the public

Peaceable Kingdom, a 70-minute documentary that is currently showing at film festivals across the country, highlights the struggles of people who have come to a point in their lives where they must follow their conscience, even though it means giving up their livelihood, their community, and all they were raised to believe and do.

It's about a fourth-generation Montana cattle rancher who experiences an epiphany during a health crisis and resolves to devote his life to undoing the damage done by his agribusiness empire. It's about a Michigan beef farmer whose childhood wounds are healed by the unexpected affection of a sanctuary cow. And it's about a young couple who stumble upon a massive injustice hidden away by the factory farming industry, and find they cannot turn away, even though they can only help one animal at a time.

An inspiring story of personal redemption, compassion, healing and hope, Peaceable Kingdom recently received the Ojai Film Festival theme award for "enriching the human spirit through film." The film had its World Premiere at Lincoln Center in Manhattan and has been selling out theatres and receiving standing ovations in major cities where it has been shown.

Don’t miss this special free screening of Peaceable Kingdom! The film will be followed by discussion and refreshments

On March 20, 2003, at the start of the U.S. war on Iraq, more than 500 people were arrested in Chicago during a peaceful protest.  More than 100 people were arrested in the following days during planned non-violent civil disobedience actions.  This documentary, by Chicago producers Linda Beckstrom, Blake Beckstrom, Jon Groot, and Seth Skundrick, features interview segments from more than thirty protestors and organizers, taking you inside their experiences, from chaos on the street to jail solidarity to renewed personal commitment to peace.  Dramatic footage from the March 20 demonstration and other protests illustrates stories of resistance from a cross section of those who stood up to say no to the war.

The purpose of Socrates Cafe is to build a community that encourages people to think about their lives and provides a forum for doing so together. We start off each meeting gathering questions that have been on our minds. These questions range from "what is beauty?" to "does mental illness really exist?" to "what are the ramifications of the automobile on society?" to "is it ever okay to lie?" There are no guidelines for good questions beyond the interests of the group. We then spend about two hours delving into the question -- not really trying to answer it, but rather trying to see it from as many different sides as we can, investigating its assumptions, getting beyond pat answers and appreciating the depth and complexity of all the issues we encounter. Come and join a Socrates Cafe - a group of spirited, inquisitive souls ready for lively dialog and friendship making. - Explore the art of dialog. - Your host keeps things lively. - Come and go as you'd like.
