Get in Rhythm with Nature Event

Join Faith Sartori and Matt Mikeska, September 25th, at a unique and tranquil setting hidden in the Bear Rocks community at Garden in the Woods.   The evening will provide an opportunity to get in rhythm with what lessons the Autumn Equinox has to offer as we begin to shed the old and start the new.  

Faith (Certified Mindful Outdoor Leader) will first guide you through a mindful outdoor experience which will incorporate movement, meditation, and invitations to connect with the natural world.  The theme for these invitations will focus on what knowledge we can gain as we begin our journey into the fall season.  We will then move around the fire and Matt will guide us through a drum circle experience.  Matt has plenty of drums to share or you can bring your own!

There is plenty of on site parking and a bathroom facility is available if needed.  The space and activities allow for social distancing but you are welcome to do whatever you feel is necessary to keep yourself comfortable.

Light refreshments will be provided. 

Matt offers these wise words about the benefits of participation:

Rhythm is what gives form to the boundless spirit and energy of all that is within and beyond our human experience.  From the movement of celestial bodies, to the changing seasons, the repeating cycles within nature and the beating heart of each one of us.  Rhythm is a common thread that runs through everything, down to the smallest atoms that are vibrating with the beat of creation.  The drum being far more than merely an instrument is a tool that is simple and accessible to anyone who approaches. It acts as a point of contact between the rhythm within and the universal rhythm.  Through the drum, we can connect to our deeper primal self while connecting with others drumming around us.  As our rhythms synchronize, we create something that is much bigger and powerful than any one of its individual parts.  The drum circle becomes a deep and meaningful act of community.  Through the beating drum self becomes integrated with all that is outside of self.  

At the very least it’s just fun to beat on a drum.  

What you need:

  • You will want to wear comfortable clothing that you can move in freely.  Please dress appropriately for the weather that day.  
  • Closed toed sturdy shoes
  • Journal and pen (recommended) 
  • Sit Pad or Camp Chair (some chairs/seating are available on site)

This rhythmic journey will occur on September 25th starting at 6:00pm and end around 8ish. Garden in The Woods is located in the Bear Rocks Community at 181 Cottonwood Road, Acme, PA 15610.  

The cost of the event is $30 and pre registration is required by  September 22nd.

The hustle of motherhood often leaves you disconnected from your self and your own needs. This monthly class will offer mother’s a time and place to stay connected to their true selves and allow space for their own self care. The group will also provide a space for connection with other moms and allow for development of an additional support system.
The class is great for anyone despite where they may be in their journey through motherhood. (No prior yoga experience is required) We will have a monthly topic that we will explore through various means including but not limited to: journaling, meditation, pranayama (breath work), asana (physical practice), and council (sharing circle). Participants will then have the opportunity to take the monthly topic into their daily routine to create new habits to stay connected to self. The leaders will maintain flexibility in our monthly topic based off the groups need.

Class is currently postponed due to Covid 19!  Stay tuned when we can meet again in person.  

Cost for the class is $25 per person (cash only if you choose to pay day of class)
