Valid on August 18, 2018 from 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

More Info come! Met Your Facilitator: Elaine Reed Born in Chicago,Illinois, my elementary and high school education was completed there. I now live in Scottsdale, Arizona, and have lived in the Phoenix area for more than 40 years. My curiosity concerning human nature drew me to the study of psychology. Continuing my education to obtain a bachelors of science degree in psychology from the University of Phoenix, to help better understand the human experience and why, we do what we do. Since leaving my 30 plus years career as an insurance professional,my focus has been on volunteering, with emphasis on facilitator training. Working with the Arizona Living Well Institute, American Lung Association, AARP Driver Safety Program, as an instructor, and volunteering in my church community. My understanding of the human experience now includes these truths, we are more alike than different. Most of what we do is to feel better, we all want to be free of pain and suffering. I have come to help share the wisdom and the knowledge of the sages to help us move forward towards those goals.

Vision Board Workshop and Wine ($75)
Valid on August 25, 2018 from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Vision Board Workshop and Wine First, let's get clear about why You might want a life vision: If you don't know what you want you'll end up with what you get! Energy flows where our attention flows. 1) DIRECTION: When we have a life vision - it gives us something to work towards. It gives us clarity, so we can go through our days knowing we're working towards what we want - and what's truly important to us. This clarity of direction helps us make the right decisions and choices - for us. 2) INSPIRATION: A life vision should be inspirational. If your life vision is ho-hum, you are not going to want to do anything about it. Our life vision should align with our values, and be inspiring so that we WANT to take action towards it. The purpose of a life vision exercise or plan is to create a desirable future that helps us to focus our lives - and inspire us to take action towards it. We will do a series of 4 simple, but powerful life vision exercises to help you connect with Your inner dreams and what you truly want from life. When you do these life vision exercises in sequence you get a broad overview of Your vision You have for Your life AND bring it right back to the present day/immediate future. This helps You focus on what You need NOW to do to get moving in the next 3 months that fits beautifully into the overall vision You have for Your life. After getting clear on a plan you will make a vision board to support your inner dreams. The only thing you need to bring is an open heart few magazines. Your poster board, glue, scissors, and yes wine will be provided. Wine will be served in the last section when we begin the last half of our workshop to create your vision board. Arrive 15 mins early to get settled in with a good seat. Must pay in advance at  https://sharonwinningham.com/store We will take ten people only $75 per person tax deductible donation to Loving-Groups.org Carl Jung says that “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” In essence, our vision statement is an authentic rendering of how our purpose and values can play out in the world.

This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all. The Story HEAL not only taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers, but follows three people on actual high stakes healing journeys.

Rockin' with Raekel ~ Baby Dance (Free)
Valid on August 29, 2018 from 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM

Wednesdays 10:00 AM sign in Start time 10:15 AM (Limited to the first 20 children) Age Requirements: Walking to 2.5 years old Parent Participation/Presence Required Drop in for a FREE 30 minute class FAQs How long is this class FREE for my child? Your child may stay in baby dance until they are 2.5 years old. How does baby dance benefit my child? The Benefits of Baby Dancing For some children, easy, graceful movements come naturally. They can be as instinctive as rolling over, crawling, and then walking. For every other baby, a little more encouragement and direction is needed. Once children find their groove, nurturing a love of music, enjoying rhythmical movement every day, and even taking toddler dance classes , can be hugely valuable. Starting dance education in your child’s early years enhances their physical, emotional, and social skills. Creativity and self-expression Dancing with babies fosters their sense of physical expression. Participating in toddler dance lessons can help to spark creativity in young children, as many classes have a strong imagination element. Children are asked to picture themselves in a variety of situations (on the moon, at a picnic, in a forest) and make movements and shapes in response to music. These activities can also see children developing a love and appreciation for other branches of performance and creative arts. Self expression Physical fitness and development It’s never too early to encourage a love of physical activity in children. When children dance with their parent or other children, they are l discovering their full range of motion, developing body awareness, and fine-tuning their balance, muscle strength, and coordination. Associating a variety of movement patterns with fun and enlightenment creates a positive connection between using their body, being fit and healthy, and feeling great. Jumping Learning and co-ordination Music engages the brain by stimulating neural pathways associated with abstract thinking, empathy, and even mathematics. Music’s melodies and rhythmic patterns exercise the brain and help develop memory. Accompanying actions that involve every aspect of a child’s body and mind will nurture: the child’s flair for language their body’s urge to move the brain’s attention to patterns the ear’s lead in initiating communication the voice’s response to sounds Expanding dance into the playing of musical instruments, even with something as simple as tapping on a saucepan, will also strengthen eye-hand coordination. Baby dancing Socialisation and awareness of others By its very nature, music is a socially engaging activity. Children love to see their parents singing and dancing at home, and when they get to join in and dance with others, it is a tremendous benefit for their social awareness. As they become more comfortable their confidence and sociability will improve, as dancing with others creates an emotional bond. Interaction Maturity and structure Toddler dance classes provide routine and structure around a fun activity. Each class is an opportunity for a healthy physical and emotional release that helps develop emotional maturity. The ability to express emotion comfortably in front of others shows mental maturity and learning to do so through movement and dance provides a safe space for young children to explore. Raekel Santos Taitano is your instructor, a native of Guam and has been dancing since she was six. She is a mom of an 18 month old toddler herself, so technically, your class will be lead by Madison (her daughter) and Raekel! Madison is following in her mom's footsteps literally. Raekel started dancing hip hop, contemporary, jazz and ballet and as she grew older she danced her native island cultural dances. As she grew to an adult she added back her contemporary but added ballroom and Latin. Her hubby taught her country which she picked up in a flash. Come in Sign in and we will get started at 10:15AM

Color, Chill, & Chat ~ Join us young and old! (Free)
Valid on August 30, 2018 from 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Color, Chill, & Chat Thursdays: 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM Unwind through coloring. This activity is meant to de-stress and connect, if you want, at your own pace. Tap into your creativity! Free cup of coffee or cup of tea. Love offerings always accepted as we are a non-profit. All donations are tax deductible. Coloring books are no longer just for the kids. In fact, adult coloring books are all the rage right now. And while researchers and art therapists alike have touted the calming benefits for over a decade, it's childhood favorite Crayola that's gotten adult coloring books some serious grown-up attention. The famous crayon makers just launched a set of markers, colored pencils and a collection of adult coloring books, Coloring Escapes, last month. And though the first commercially successful adult coloring books were published in 2012 and 2013, the once-niche hobby has now grown into a full-on trend, with everyone from researchers at Johns Hopkins University to the editors of Yoga Journal suggesting coloring as an alternative to meditation. Here's why you might want to open a page and say ahhhhhh. According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is a mental health profession in which the process of making and creating artwork is used to "explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem." So basically, it's similar to good old therapy. (Don't think you need therapy? Here's why you should take a mental health day now) Yet art therapy is not only about learning and improving yourself — it's a means of personal expression, too. Bring yourself and say ahhhhh... Young and old welcome!

Valid on September 1, 2018 from 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM

A WOMEN’S CIRCLE IS AN INTIMATE GATHERING WHERE WE LEARN NEW WAYS OF SPEAKING, LISTENING + RELATING TO EACH OTHER. It is a place where we discover and integrate new blueprints that serve the women we are becoming. As each woman claims her seat in the circle, we come together as equals united by our common purpose to feel more aliveness, love and connection. "When women circle, something magical happens. Beyond the obvious social fulfillment is a space that touches the center of our deepest vulnerability and our greatest power. When combined with structure, mutual respect, trust, and ritual, a women’s circle becomes a space where tentative voices are urged into authority, where dreams are articulated for the first time, where tears mark a rite of passage. What makes a circle of women special? Being known beyond the roles that define us, speaking our dreams into existence, mourning what’s been lost, a container for promises, recognition that we are valued, time for honoring our innate connection to the cycles of the earth, the moment of recognition when we hear our own truth spoken by another, a space to call our own." Open to all women. $25.00 Women Only! Are you wanting connection? Are you wanting to jump start your journey with Love? Do you want to accelerate your growth? Are you so unclear how to make connection and where to start? This is for you. When: 10:30 AM-1:30 PM 3 hour session Why: We are at a pivotal point in society where women are beginning to show up as themselves, completely. Not as reflections of what others want us to be, but in the softness, the gracefulness, the heartbroken, and fierceness that lives within the feminine spirit. We are showing up unapologetically as ourselves in our womanly fullness. Women’s Goddess Group is an empowering tool that keeps us grounded through times of transitions. This has proven to catapult each woman into a higher sense of community and belonging immediately. The closeness that one feels is almost tangible after first session. Led by Sharon Winningham, ULLC 602-405-0144 Who is welcome: Anyone age 18 to 100. You must bring a spiral notebook. Details-Bring a pillow and a blanket and comfy clothes

Color, Chill, & Chat ~ Join us young and old! (Free)
Valid on September 6, 2018 from 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Color, Chill, & Chat Thursdays: 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM Unwind through coloring. This activity is meant to de-stress and connect, if you want, at your own pace. Tap into your creativity! Free cup of coffee or cup of tea. Love offerings always accepted as we are a non-profit. All donations are tax deductible. Coloring books are no longer just for the kids. In fact, adult coloring books are all the rage right now. And while researchers and art therapists alike have touted the calming benefits for over a decade, it's childhood favorite Crayola that's gotten adult coloring books some serious grown-up attention. The famous crayon makers just launched a set of markers, colored pencils and a collection of adult coloring books, Coloring Escapes, last month. And though the first commercially successful adult coloring books were published in 2012 and 2013, the once-niche hobby has now grown into a full-on trend, with everyone from researchers at Johns Hopkins University to the editors of Yoga Journal suggesting coloring as an alternative to meditation. Here's why you might want to open a page and say ahhhhhh. According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is a mental health profession in which the process of making and creating artwork is used to "explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem." So basically, it's similar to good old therapy. (Don't think you need therapy? Here's why you should take a mental health day now) Yet art therapy is not only about learning and improving yourself — it's a means of personal expression, too. Bring yourself and say ahhhhh... Young and old welcome!

With great intimacy and warmth, he shares stories, conversations, meditations, and poetry that have inspired him in his personal inquiry on love. Key themes include: Your destiny is not just to find love; it is to be the most loving person you can be. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Self-love is how you are meant to feel about yourself. It is the key to loving others. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ When you think something is missing in a relationship, it is probably you. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Forgiveness helps you to see that love has never hurt you; it is only your misperceptions of love that hurt. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ The greatest influence you can have in any situation is to be the presence of love. $5.00 per visit buy your book https://www.amazon.com/Loveability-Robert-Holden-Ph-D/dp/140194163X/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_14_img_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=2AEDDSTJKCR6N1KE9Y85
