March 2019

Greetings LVC Family! 

Here we are in the final moments of winter, savoring the last of the darkness. We can use the remaining quietness of the season to dream into any visions whose seeds need tending to before the warmth of spring returns to nurture them into fruition. 

With Lightning in a Bottle only two months away, we are getting busy with the curation of some incredible programming for the Compass, and of course we have a few classes and gatherings organized before then, in March and April.

“If you stood on a summer’s morning on the bank under a brilliant sky, you would see the thousand petals and say that together they make the lotus. But if you lived in its heart, invisible from without, you might see how the ecstasy at its fragrant core gives rise to its thousand petals. What is beautiful is that which is itself in essence, a certainty of being.”

- Becoming the Lotus: Awakening Osiris: Normandy Ellis

Vocal Feedom : Songs of the Soul

Workshop with Sonja Drakulich
Pt. 2 & 3 - March 17 & April 14th

Unveil your authentic voice using techniques Sonja has refined throughout her explorations of both the Eastern and Western world. Our body is our instrument, therefore alignment practices will be included that create an open, clear channel for our voice and purest expression. Practices will include strengthening and coordinating the breath to create a strong foundation for our tone. 


In Service, 

Isis, Eve and the LVC Family
