COLORS OF THE SOUL: UNEARTHING THE RAINBOW OF YOUR DEEPEST SELF
Join me and Life Coach and Master Artist George Herrick in a process where art becomes soul. The day will be filled with a series of beautiful meditations, after each of which you will create a page of soulful art. By the end of the day, you will have enough pages to create your own book – which you will bring home and continue to work on. Absolutely no artistic ability is needed and all materials will be provided for you. You need only bring an open heart, an inquisitive mind, and a desire to know yourself deeper and bring your life to the highest level of joy! To find out more about the presenters, visit www.dorydzinski.com and www.georgeherrick.com. Lunch is on your own, but light refreshments will be served throughout the day.

THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES
Do you ever feel like some of your relationships are lop-sided – as if you are the one doing all the giving and you are getting very little back? It may simply be because you speak different love languages! Just as someone who speaks only English cannot understand someone who only speaks Chinese, we may not feel the affection, support, or appreciation being given to us from others because it is in another love language that is different from our own. This class is based on the work of Gary Chapman. You will learn five different love languages, your own primary and secondary languages, and you will also examine what is being spoken by others in your life. This will help you see your relationships through a different perspective, thereby ridding yourself of much frustration, disappointment, and sadness. This class is for spouses (it’s really fun to come to this class together), parent-child, siblings, friends, etc. Your instructor feels that this information should be provided to everyone just as they reach adolescence – it can change everything!

LAW OF ATTRACTION – WHAT’S ALL THE BUZZ ABOUT?
You may have seen or read The Secret, and it may look too good to be true. Can you really change anything in your life? Can you really have anything you really want? This “secret” has been utilized and promoted for decades by individuals such as Earl Nightingale, Zig Ziglar, Norman Vincent Peale, Napolean Hill, Brian Tracey, Tony Robbins, and so many more – the list is endless. All of the world’s top motivators, businessmen, and high performers are aware of the key scientific principles at work. Come learn how the Law of Attraction works and how you can use it in all aspects of your life. We will be making a small Vision Board focused around one of your goals that you will bring home and begin to use immediately to create your life the way you want it to be!
Stay tuned for next date!

Many different forms of meditation will be discussed and experienced, including silent, guided, breath-focused, body-focused and prayerful.

Make an appointment for readings any time! Receive a healing through the use of the energetic properties of these new-to-the-planet divination cards written in “light language” – the language of the soul. These gorgeous divination and healing cards were created by Meg Blackburn Losey, Ph.D., a contemporary pioneer in the intriguing field of evolution and consciousness.

Forgive? You’ve got to be kidding! Never! Such is the sentiment of many people. However, pain, hurt, and negative emotions take up much room in our hearts. Inviting forgiveness into your life allows a place for more peace and happiness to enter and expand. Misconceptions can block the progress of forgiveness. This workshop presents much interesting information regarding those misconceptions, and teaches tools that can be used to reach a place of peace through discussion, closing with a beautiful meditation.

AWAKENING THE CHAKRAS THROUGH MINDFUL YOGA
Typically taught with my friend, Vicky Hannon, Kripalu trained yoga instructor. This workshop will provide an introduction to the seven primary chakras or spiritual energy centers within the body. It is important that these energy centers strive toward balance so that our lives reflect the same. Information pertaining to the focus and corresponding aspects of life will be discussed for each chakra. Then, through a series of mindful yoga postures specifically designed for each chakra, participants will enhance their state of health and well-being.
Five hour workshop plus a one-hour break.
BUILDING ON BALANCE: CHAKRA STUDIES
The body is composed of many systems, for example, the respiratory and pulmonary systems. But are you aware that the body is also regulated through an energetic system? There are 7 main chakras that act as the main energetic life force centers of our bodies. When they are in balance, life is easy and effortless. When they are not, life can be challenging and it may feel like you are swimming against the current. This series presents many aspects of each energy center, how to tell if you are balanced, and numerous exercises to bring yourself back into balance. Many handouts on each chakra are provided.
Thursdays, March 14, 21 and April 4 and 11. Held at Manchester Community College – register through this link: http://www.mcc.commnet.edu/continuing/credit-free/registration.php.
CHAKRA FUN AND CREATIVITY: PLAYTIME WITH THE CHAKRAS
Keeping yourself healthy can be a whole lot of fun! Come join us and have 7 different kinds of fun. As we explore the energy system of our body, which contains 7 major chakras, take part in fun-filled activities to strengthen the corresponding “life areas.” We will create mini-vision boards, do some group movement “sculptures,” share a dream, creatively identify some personal strengths, and so much more! Absolutely no creative “bones in your body” or chakra knowledge are needed to come and have fun. When your energy system is open and flowing freely, so may those corresponding parts of your life! Remember, laughter is great medicine! Let’s get healthy through having great fun! All materials will be provided, but if you are a journaler, bring your journal along. This is extremely similar to the presentation I conducted aboard the Norwegian Spirit cruise lines on the Connecticut Holistic Cruise January 8 – 15, 2012, but much more enhanced!
Stay tuned – coming soon!
WHO AM I REALLY?
Ever ask yourself “What do I want to be when I grow up?” – even though you’re already grown up!! This light-hearted, fun-loving class will help you reconnect with pieces of who you REALLY are – not who everyone wants you to be. Classes consist of focusing on authentic likes and dislikes, our personal value system, two guided meditations, some interesting surveys, information regarding the chakra system, different languages of love, and lots of laughs. This class will help you reconnect with the real and delightful you hiding deep down inside!
CREATING YOUR HEART’S DESIRE
This step-by-step course will bring you through the process of deciding what it is you really want in life, and then give you the tools for getting it! Based on the teachings of Sonia Choquette, international speaker, healer, and intuitive, you will learn how to get very clear on what your real goals are, what is holding you back, how to get past your fears, and how to bring about wonderful changes in your life. This is not only a great course on its own, but is also an effective follow-up to Who Am I Really? Students will have fun with both in-class creative exercises, as well as with hand-outs for personal self-exploration to be completed on their own.
Four 2-hour sessions OR full day workshop
CREATING AN ENERGETIC VISION BOARD
You may have designed a vision board in the past, but here is something new! Your body has an energy system with seven major points, each governing a specific area of your life. We will create vision boards today based on that system – and an outline of your body will be the base of your vision board! We will explore all seven major areas of your life and come up with some goals and strategies for better balance on all levels – physical, emotional, psychological, financial, social, environmental, etc. Then we will create that in visual harmony on your body’s vision board. Please bring magazines that you are especially interested in, pictures, stickers, baubles, markers, crayons, colored pencils, and anything else you’d like to use or share with the class. There are no limits on what you can put on a vision board! What fun!
Full day workshop
DREAMING YOUR HEART’S DESIRE
There are a number of ways to reach your goals, but if you have tried and tried and still feel stuck, there is something blocking your way, and it’s most likely something inside of you that you are not even aware of. Through a collection of meditations, artwork, journaling, poetry, prayer, dream discussion, and sharing, we will review a collection of possibilities around the notion of “stuckness.” With a very relaxed and soothing rhythm, this class will help you communicate with yourself on a deeper level and get to the soul of your true heart’s desires.
Full day workshop
ARE YOU LISTENING TO YOUR BODY?
Is your body trying to get your attention through aches, pains, discomfort, stiffness, illness, etc? Are you listening? Each area of your body relates to a different psychospiritual possibility of balance and imbalance in your life. By identifying the physical source of the discomfort or pain, and by discerning what function that part of your body performs for your body as a whole system, you can learn a lot about what may bring ease and balance back into your life, and, quite possibly, resolve the area of discomfort. This is a fascinating class that gives you power and understanding about your life through listening to the needs and desires of your own body.
SPIRITUAL AWAKENING 101
Do you feel odd and disconnected? Do you feel that you are not quite on the same wave length as those around you? Do you experience synchronicity and “meaningful coincidences” in your life on a regular basis?
Spiritual awakenings can bring unusual occurrences into your life that you may have questions about. Some believe that spirituality is the same as having specific religious beliefs, but it is much more than that. Spirituality deals with your interconnectedness with yourself, those around you, nature, religion, the unseen, the universe, and so much more. Let’s talk about many of the possibilities that can be experienced through an awakening and help you understand that all of this is a normal part of the awakening process. Please bring some of your experiences to class to share, as well as your journal.
