Roots Book Club
with Bill Schmedding Saturday, March 3 11:15am-1:00pm We are starting a book club! Our inaugural book is Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life. Reading this book is a great way to start the year and will get you even more involved in our community.
Book synopsis: Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things so we can make room for life's most important things--which actually aren't things at all. At age 30, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus walked away from their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on what's truly important. In their debut book, Joshua & Ryan, authors of the popular website TheMinimalists.com, explore their troubled pasts and descent into depression. Though they had achieved the American Dream, they worked ridiculous hours, wastefully spent money, and lived paycheck to paycheck. Instead of discovering their passions, they pacified themselves with ephemeral indulgences--which only led to more debt, depression, and discontent. After a pair of life-changing events, Joshua & Ryan discovered minimalism, allowing them to eliminate their excess material things so they could focus on life's most important "things": health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution.

Thai Massage Workshop
with Robina Winkler Saturday, April 28 12:30-2:30pm In this two hour workshop we will explore the ancient healing modality of Thai Massage. Learn the art of helping your partner relax by incorporating stretching, compression, and energy healing techniques. By working along energetic pathways or Sen lines in the body we help to relieve both physical and energetic tension. This style of massage is done fully clothed on the floor so please be appropriately dressed in yoga/athletic attire. Students will leave with the knowledge of how to give a short but sweet full body massage!
Perfect for couples, but bringing a partner is not required! Come alone, with a friend, or a significant other and experience first hand both giving and receiving thai massage.
