A Wilderness Quest Presentation with Robbie Baier of Red Rocks Quests, 7pm
10 Day Wilderness Quest in Utah from May 9 – 18, 2014.
In these times of global upheaval it is becoming increasingly important for us, both as a species and as individuals, to connect deeply with our own inner wisdom, and to live from a place of wholeness and with reverence for all of life. Through the ages seekers and sages have gone into the wild, abstaining from food and comforts, to seek vision, guidance, and new ways forward. Bringing this wisdom home again nourished their lives, as well as their communities.
If you are reading this it may be because you too have heard this calling deep inside of you, to venture into the great unknown. This ancient roaring invites you to listen deeply, to reboot, to go inward and away from career and relationships, to see with new eyes oneself and the world.
This Friday night I will give a 1.5 hour presentation about the 10 day WIlderness Quest offered by my outfit Red Rock Quests every spring. Together with my partner Lisa we have been part of this particular lineage of Questing since 2006. Come this Friday and learn about the Medicine Wheel, Self Created Ritual, Solo Questing and to see pictures of the beauty that is the Canyonlands of Utah.
This presentation is free and open to anyone who is curious about Questing. To learn more about the quest and us guides please go to www.redrockquests.com.
Please join me for a 3-session series of weekend afternoon classes exploring the erotic as it lives in every aspect of life. Work. Relationship. The body. Soul. These classes will involve teaching, guided visualizations, journaling and experiential exercises. Cultivating safety and trust is my highest priority. There will be no nudity. Each experience will be open to the level of participation you desire with suggestions for home exploration and play.

A Letter from Mary & Maia:
Dear wonderful Women of our Community,
Walking Our Talk: A Women’s Creation Circle
Join us to find out about ‘the magic’ of Circle and whether you want to participate. A new Circle will be forming in late February.
Contact 646.265.2293 if you are interested but did not attend the Intro Evening
There are now over 70 of us local women who have or are currently gathering in an intentional Circle. We call the Circle “Walking Our Talk”. We also refer to it as a Creation Circle. And this is because in the Circle we create many things: our own self-directed projects and intentions; a spiritual practice of building community and interdependence among each other as community members; and an extraordinary inner confidence, self-acceptance and self-love that comes from practicing authentic, vulnerable connection with other women.
A lot of magic comes out of Circle – like incredible networking, support, Playing & Fun, breakthroughs and successes, a profound sense of connection and support, etc. We also discuss deep themes that leave us all expanded and freer as women.
Women’s projects in Circle vary enormously – self-discovery, self-care, life transitions, successful business ventures, activated creative expression, practical steps for moving projects forward, living from joy, creating miracles, community-centered projects, global missions, etc etc.
A Circle is usually between 10-20 women. We go for an 8-week run, then take a break. For the Winter/Spring ’14 round there will be two larger Circles of already active ‘Circle Sisters’. You are invited to come to the Sunday Intro evening to hear and feel what Circle is about, to see if you want to join the new Circle that will be forming, and to find out why all these Circle Sisters are glowing nd so happy…

Nancy Gilgoff began practicing Ashtanga Yoga over thirty years ago with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India. As result of their long and close association, Nancy is able to teach with a style and touch that comes directly from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. When Nancy asked Jois how she should teach, he told her to “teach the way I taught you” advice which she took to heart and continues to follow today. Nancy’s studies, over the years, have also led her to other teachers, including Baba Hari Dass and, for asana, instructors of Iyengar. In addition, she has and continues to pursue the dharma teachings of the Dalai Lama. Nancy spends much of her time touring the United States, Europe, and Asia, teaching with a view to fostering loving-kindness and to sharing her love and experience of yoga.

Entering the Dream: an introduction to Jungian Active Imagination and Group Dream Work
This is an opportunity to learn more about your dreams, to unlock their meaning and access the transformative wisdom of the Psyche. Participants will learn how to reenter their dreams and dream them on in a waking state via the Jungian technique of Active Imagination, in order to discover their meaning, (as opposed to standing back and interpreting them, which is less effective). The class will also include the use of art materials to facilitate non-verbal exploration of dream images.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore dreams in the safety of a small group led by an experienced Jungian analyst.
Taught by Sarah Jackson, MFA MA
