Gratitude Friday's at Sai
Somatic Meditation with Beverley - 1st Friday An approach to meditation that enables us to feel our way into deeper aspects of our human beingness, Somatic Meditation is often referred to as the Practice of Pure Awareness, Connecting to Our Source and Simply Sitting. It is thought to be one of the earliest, simplest and most effective approaches to meditation. Donations to go to programmes for local First Nations children, relating to their people's history, culture and language.
Gentle Movement with Marc - 2nd Friday Gentle guided movements exploring ergonomic, cultural, individual and divine interactions that support an awareness and feeling of self and our connection to the creative forces.
Sound Circle with Surya - 3rd Friday Surya Leigh is very excited to facilitate the coming together of people to share and heal around story and sound. It is an special experience to hold space for one another; to listen and to be heard. The question,"What ails thee?" is central to the Sound Circle and central to the path of compassion and understanding. In the evening Sound Circlepeople can lie down and receive the transformative frequencies of the sacred sound instruments. Participants also have the opportunity to play a variety of instruments with the intention of supporting the other. In circle, we create a safe and powerful crucible for healing, love & compassion. It is a beautiful time to both give and receive. All are welcome and no instruments are required. By donation with proceeds going to Residential Hospice in Owen Sound.
Drumming Circle with Tracy - 4th Friday All are welcome to come and feel the collective beat. It does not matter if you are new to drumming or have been drumming for a long time, Sai offers an open and safe place to explore drumming in community. The beat of our heart offers us our own rhythm. We just have to listen. Join us for a relaxed and creative experience of self expression. All are welcome and no instruments are required. By donation with proceeds going to bring Drumming to our community schools.

Continuing through a series of Yin postures which are long-held, passive floor poses that target deep connective tissues of the hips, low back and legs.

Sound Bathwith Surya Leigh A Sound Bath can provide an experience of relaxation and transformation through sound and vibration. Sound Baths are one of the most soothing, relaxing and rejuvenating tools that I have experienced. A Sound Bath or Sound Meditation is like a sound massage. The healing frequencies created in a Sound Bath can affect our emotional, mental and spiritual well being in a profound way and can open us up to expanded awareness and the presence of now. Sometimes participants feel like they are submerged in sound or are washed in waves of sound. Words like “cleansed” and “cleared” are sometime used to describe ones experience. For others emotions or memories might arise. In other cases joy, elation or a deep relaxation. It can be different each time. Come and see what opens up for you in the sound.
“Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.” Lao Tzu
