Food Matters’ Free Online Detox & Cleanse Workshop


Here’s a great (and FREE!) way to transition to Spring. Over the years I’ve learned so much from the folks over at Food Matters. If you haven’t seen their film, check it out! They are truly passionate about food, wellness and helping people live a life full of seriously vibrant health. This is a five-part program where you’ll learn how to safely release toxins from your body, boost your immune system, reset your metabolism and heal your body from the inside out. Amazing. You’ll also learn about how much nutritional mojo can be packed into a green smoothie (see above!)  — and how to make them quick and easy!

Yoga for Creativity With MaryBeth LaRue


Here’s an online class, brought to you by Yoga Journal, geared towards using yoga as a vehicle to open up your creative energy. Led by Wanderlust Los Angeles yogi MaryBeth LaRue, the mission of this seven-week online class is to take you on a physical, mental, and spiritual journey to deepen your connection to your creative truth. Seven weeks … seven chakras! Each week will address an individual chakra. Also included are weekly meditations, targeted asanas, journal assignments, and intention-setting. I can tell you from personal experience that just doing specific breathing exercises for the throat chakra — associated with your thyroid, the center of listening, communication and creativity — has been amazing for me. Just think of what it will feel like after seven weeks?

Details: Course starts July 11th, 2016; Cost: $250. Find more details here.

Calming the Mind – Joy of Living Level 1


If you’re pressed for time and travel is just not an option at the moment, there’s a great online course brought to you by the Tergar Learning Community. I’ve gotten to know this inspiring community here in Madison, and am happy to have recently found out that they also have one in Paris, where I’ll be moving this spring. The Joy of Living Program is a path of meditation practice taught by Tibetan Buddhist master, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. His first book, The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, is a New York Times bestseller, but what he is really known for is his accessible, playful, and – yes! – joyful approach to sharing thoughts and ideas about wisdom, compassion, and awareness.

This Level I training, Calming the Mind, is open to one and all. In this six week course you will learn how to start a daily meditation practice, transform physical pain and difficult emotions, and how to deal with obstacles and distractions. The course includes weekly video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, course discussion forums, a printable course guide, and live webinar events with senior Tergar instructor, Edwin Kelley.

Start date is February 3, 2016, and the course fee is: $99 ($75 for students).
