Feb 3rd-Sat- Astrology I, The Elements of a Birth Chart. This is a 6-week class taught by Astrologer David Shell.

This class is a comprehensive introduction to the elements of Astrology.  We will learn the meaning of the signs of the Zodiac, the houses, the planets and their inter-relationships.  This knowledge is the foundation for both basic chart interpretation and the ability to understand the universal language which underlies all experience.  The Astrological energies are the elements of this universal language.  They are also the primary constituents of every person, place and thing in the Cosmos.  Every spiritual seeker should know how to speak the language of the Spirit.
Each student will receive their own birth chart and help to interpret it as they learn in class.  As we focus on astrological self-knowledge we will be building the foundation for that broader knowledge of the world around us.  This is the meaning of the ancient phrase “Who would seek Knowledge must first seek to know thyself.”
David Shell has practiced and taught astrology since 1972.  In his work he draws upon both spiritual and psychological models of human experience. He places Astrology in a familiar and accessible context.  He brings warmth and humor to his teaching, making learning a pleasure.  He is a full-time teacher, counselor and writer, using Astrology, Tarot and other tools in his national practice based in Raleigh.
Time: 10:15am- 12:15pm, Cost $125.00

 Feb 11th-Sun- Chakra Dance with Susan Melchione.

Dance of Power (Solar Plexus) To dance the Solar Plexus Chakra is to call on the warrior dances of ancient Greece, Morocco, Spain, Mexico and Brazil. These warrior dances were masculine, powerful, athletic and virile, as they rhythmically mimicked the art of the fight. In Chakra dance, we enter this dance with dramatic movements, strong, purposeful and clearly defined. As the energy builds, movements can become more complex, even frenzied. Through this dynamic movement, the solar energy ignites, and our inner warrior emerges.

Time: 2:00pm- 3:30pm, Cost $20 or buy a pack of 3 or more for $15/class


Feb 17th-Sat-  Spiritual & Psychic Protection with Rebecca Helgesen

Are you opening and exploring spiritually and psychically, but unsure how to secure your light, and keep negative energies or presences from affecting you?
Are you an empath who feels everything, so it’s hard to tell what’s yours and what you’re picking up from other people and places? Do you want clearer boundaries, and to stop absorbing so much?
This class will teach how to ‘flex’ your own light energy core as your first – and most important – line of defense and clearing for spiritual and psychic protection. Crystals, sprays, prayers, spirit guides, electro-magnetic field neutralizers, and smudges can all augment your own core light energy protection, we’ll also cover ways to use them most effectively.

When: 3:30-5:30 pm, Cost: $20 cash or check at the door.
To register, or for more info: call or text Rebecca at 305-343-2896, or email
