Dear Learning for Life Center Friends,

JULY is going to be a busy month at The Learning for Life Center. We hope you will choose to come to some of our classes. Btw… WE HAVE AIR CONDITIONING!  🙂
If you are dealing with health issues, stress, or challenging relationships in your family or at work, you might consider making an appointment with one of our practitioners. We offer Massage, Reiki, Sound Healing, Compassionate Communication and Self Integration Sessions. See details below:

Sunday Afternoon Meditation & Energy Exploration
July 3rd.          2 – 3:30 p.m.         Meditation with Dr. Jeff Nichols
July 10th.         2 – 3:30 p.m.       Mandala Meditation with Linda VanBibber
Join Linda for a journey into your own inner world of symbols from which you will be guided to create a mandala for your personal growth.  The mandala is a symbol of wholeness, the word literally meaning an essence in a circle. In this mandala healing process you are the essence in the center and the circle is the environment in which you move and live.   The suggested donation for this meditation experience is $10 to assist with the cost of materials.  Paper and colored pencils will be provided; pencils will be available for purchase if desired.

See the Website calendar for details about the rest of the month.

Dharma Dialogues – 7 -9 p.m.  (1st & 3rd Tuesday Evenings)

Tuesday, July 5th.     Dharma Dialogue with Trisha Smith
Trisha Smith, Reiki Master/Teacher, Licensed Massage Therapist and owner of En-Balance Holistic Healing, will give a talk in the dharma style on how she went from En-Balance (energetically balanced) to unbalanced, a common spiritual folly of mystic, psychic, and healer-types which is often not talked about. Trisha plans to discuss how she got there, and the Google search that shifted her perspective. She intends this talk serve as a motivational tool for the spiritual “hard times.”  At these times we need to  shine a light into  the darkened corners of our shadow selves.  This allows us to grow “spiritual seeds”  that have been previously planted.

Tuesday, July 19th    Dharma Dialogue with Bruce Hayden
Meditation provides an age-old system for resolving the essential spiritual difficulties of human life, including those that might seem to be unique to our modern computer age.  These difficulties are the result of a disconnection between our bodies, spirits and minds.  The solution is to reconnect and integrate ourselves, both internally and with our environment by cultivating balance, deep relaxation and clear awareness. Join Bruce for an introduction to a powerful, yet accessible system of inner work that can open the way for us to find meaningful answers

Three Sisters Garden and LFL Garden Update
We are celebrating the  Earth and the Summer Sunshine by watching our Three Sisters Garden grow. The corn, beans, and squash are growing fast and loving the rain. In addition we have watermelons, cantaloupe, and many varieties of heirloom tomatoes. We will have fun harvesting, eating, and saving seeds this fall.
