Facilitated by:
Vincent Ardizzone, CMHC Clinical Therapist​

True Freedom:
A 6 week Mens Group

Cost: $35/wk ($210 total 6 wk class)

Date: Mondays from 6-7:30pm 

May 6th  through June 10th

This is a closed group which starts with first week and each week builds off the previous discussion.​ It is NOT a drop in/out workshop.

TO ALL MEN - Have you ever thought to yourself:

“I want to be a better man.”
“I don’t know why I do this!”
“I need to better manage my anger.”
“I have to learn how to communicate better.”


Now is your opportunity to do just that in shared space with other men who are seeking to achieve the same goals. In this 6-week series, using Connor Beaton’s book “Men’s Work” as a guide, we will explore how to:

Discover and live with clear purpose and direction
• Build skills to be successful in all of your relationships
• Gain better control and understanding of your anger
• Understand your relationship with sexuality and intimacy
• Learn how to regulate your mind, body, and emotions, even under stress and conflict
• Become fearless and at peace with your journey and personal history


We will do this through discussion, inquiry, and exploration of our answers to the hard, scary, and sometimes intimidating questions all while being in a shared space with other men who “get it.”

“Men’s Work” by Connor Beaton focuses on the unique challenges that men with emotional wounds so often grapple with—while giving you the tools to heal and return to our relationships in a way that is both empowering personally and beneficial for everyone in your life.
“The goal of this work is not only to become a better man,” says Beaton, “but a better participant in the collective enterprise of living. True freedom awaits.”

RSVP by April 29th in order to reserve your spot for this group.

Book not included. Highly recommended to purchase prior to first class. Can be purchased on Amazon.

Darlene Doughty will be bringing her Sacred Mother Drum for all to play. Feel free to bring your own drum as well. Don’t have a drum no problem Darlene has some to share. We will start with grounding and connecting and clearing all of the days stress and challenges out of our bodies.

I love to let Spirit guide us as to what needs the group has and we can go from there. Bring a yoga mat, pillows, blankets what ever makes you comfortable. Sometimes we have people who need healing so we invite them to go to the center of the circle and just lay down to absorb exactly what they need at that moment in time. There will be an alter in the center so if you have anything you’d like to add for some extra loving vibes feel free to bring it as well.

Full Moon Breathwork Ceremony with Sonya Lin

Cost: $35 

Date:  November 27th @ 630pm - 8pm


Full moons have to do with creation, manifestation, birth, and rebirth. Because the full moon completes the cycle, it is the symbol of a time of death or change. It is also a time for gathering your wits and tying up loose ends. Basically, the full moon symbolizes the end of a chapter, shedding light on the things that we no longer need to hold on to. It’s a beautiful time for breathwork to support such purge and release.

Breathwork during a full moon is a beautiful time for your body and mind to release and let go. Full moons are associated with the processes of creation, manifestation, birth, and rebirth. Because the full moon completes the cycle, it is associated with death or change. It’s also a good time to gather your wits and tie up loose ends. Essentially, the full moon represents the end of a chapter, shedding light on the things we no longer need to cling to. Come join us in community to experience the ritual of ceremony of self love and care for purging and releasing through breathwork during this months full moon.

This Breathwork technique is done lying down on your back in a comfortable position. Music will play in the background to help motivate, relax and release anything that’s stuck. This will break you out of your same old cycle and clear out stress, anxiety, anger, depression, and just about any other unwanted negative emotion. You will know it’s working the first time you do it because how you’ll feel afterwards is undeniable

Facilitator: Sonya Lyn, is the founder of Living Unbroken® and Live on Purpose ™ She is a Breathwork facilitator, Life Coach, Energy Healing Practitioner, Spiritual Wedding officiant, and a Power Yoga teacher.

Community Kirtan

Cost: by donation

Date: Nov. 10, 2023 from 7 to 9pm


The word ‘Kirtan’ literally means praise — which makes Kirtan music the sound of praise. Many Kirtans have a call-and-response style, where one person sings a line, and another repeats it back. This makes it perfect for singing as a group because it means you don’t need to know the words, or be a musician, or even have any musical instruments on hand.

Kirtan music is an ancient practice in Yoga that can bring powerful spiritual effects, and is part of a practice known as Bhakti Yoga. Kirtan songs are made up of sacred sounds that can be sung by anyone, anywhere — it’s less about sounding pitch-perfect, and more about the feeling of lovingness, community and celebration that happens when you join together to sing songs of devotion.

 Join us for an intimate evening of devotional chanting, a call and response tradition passed down through the saints of India. Sing outward and bath in the nectar of the divine. Connect to our true nature in a heart opening, throat opening practice that heals the divide of our truth.


Introduction to Chanting

Cost: $35

Date: Nov. 11, 2023 from 11am to 1230pm

A practice of breath, sound & mantra. Join Matthew Dwyer, yoga teacher and kirtan singer, to learn how to use your breath and body to gain inner access to the devotional power of your unique voice. In this workshop you will be guided through simple exercises that start to cultivate a relationship with your pure voice, the voice that connects us to our spiritual heart and longs to call out to the Beloved.

Bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion, encourages us to explore the many flavors of the divine through practices like chanting. In this workshop we will learn breath techniques that bring us inward with the intention of expressing outward. We will use ancient mantras in Sanskrit that have deep healing vibrational qualities which help us foster the dance of our relationship both with our own voice and our connection to the divine. There is absolutely no experience necessary nor do you have to have any background in music. Everyone is welcome.

Limited to 10 people.
