These incredilbe drum circles have been the center of much of what happens at Peace Forest Sanctuary. They are free-form, improvised, non-faciitated drum/dance/chant experiences that seem to take on a life of their own - ebbing and flowing, rising and fallling bringing everyone into a space of oneness. Bring a drum or percussion instrument if you'd like (we have many persucssion instruments and drums to share), but most importantly bring yourself. Drumming, dancing, singing, chanting, light vegetarian snacks concluding with an 18" Crystal Singing Bowl Meditation.

FreedomDance aka Yogadance
This class is a phenomneal ecstatic experience that combines the best music in the world with the creative facilitaiton of Stephanie Miner-Berger as she takes you on a journey of movement and higher consciouness. She may start with you dancing to inspirational world beats or the poems of Rumi set to music. She will combine your creative movement with her inspirational words and music from all over the world. Sometimes we dance to live African drumming. This is a soulful, tribal, therapeutic place where you can come as you are and release, rejuvenate, and let go! This is a place where you can let your emotions out, connect with others, and find your freedom through the class. Sometimes Stephanie will lead a loosely guided class to the rhythm of the drum...the heartbeat of the Earth and other great music. Come join in. Be ready to sweat and let your soul run free! The last half-hour of class is gentle yoga to cool down, stretch, and enjoy the presence of awareness when we take care of our mind and body. This is a great way to end your day.
First Saturday of every month
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan
Kundalini Yoga is one of the most ancient of yogas. It follows under the teachings of the great master teacher, Yogi Bhajan. It incorporates different forms of meditation, breath work, chanting, and relaxation. At times this practice can be vigorous, yet it is accessible to people of all levels of abiity. Kundalini Yoga can offer great healing, higher states of awareness, and bring great ease.

Come join Stephanie on Thursdays from 6:30-8 pm as we embark on a Kundalini Yoga class. Come experience these ancient sacred movements that have only been practiced by lay people over the past 30 years. Before then it was only for Yogic masters. Now is the time to awaken your own inner master.
