Walking Meditation
with Kim McCann
In 2013, Kim hiked the Appalachian Trail, a 2189 mile trek along the East Coast of the United States. As a solo hiker, she developed a daily walking meditation that included chakra balancing, karmic clearing, and circles of light. During that period of time she witnessed uncommon manifestations, survived a bear encounter, and escaped three serious falls that could have resulted in death. One hiker witnessed her fall 15 feet off of a steep vertical path and land with no injuries or scratches. He told her that he had just seen her “float down” the fall. She will be sharing her meditation techniques in a one hour walk about at the Diamante Center. If you have a walking stick or two, please bring (not required).
12:30 - 2:30pm
Teaming: A Workshop Experiment

This 'event' is a two hour experiment in group interaction hopefully leading to some new insights into teamwork and teams. It is not a normal workshop with a leader providing information and/or demonstration followed by “discussion”.

Rather it is based on how children learn through games, contests and mutual inquiry/consensus. The intention of this event is two-fold. 1) to uncover some often hidden things that make teams successful and 2) to experience hueristic (trial n error; non-authoritarian) educational exercises.

It will be all right to have a lot of fun



3:00 - 4:30pm

Subtle Alignment

And 2017 will be a Number One - which is all about New Beginnings

Introduction To Systema

with Jonathan MacCaul


Many cultures around the world have powerful martial arts.

For Russia, the most comprehensive one would be Systema – the physical practice, which has numerous benefits both for physical and psychological health as well as spiritual growth. At its core Systema is a system for adaptation towards the environment based on holistic approach.

Evolved through 10 centuries of combative arts, the history of the Cossacks and Eastern spirituality, Systema is a natural toolbox that can help deal with stress and tension and be competent in conflict resolution.

In Systema, the body has to be free of tension, filled with endurance, flexibility, effortless movement, and explosive potential. The spirit or psychological state has to be calm, free of anger, irritation, fear, self-pity, delusion, and pride. The combat skill includes movements that are powerful and precise, instant and economical, spontaneous, subtle, and diverse, the signature of a true professional of any movement discipline.

In this “Intro To Systema” class, participants will work individually and with each other, learning principles that can be easily applied to all aspects of life to cultivate awareness and become more mindful. Principles applying to Breathing, Posture, Constant Movement, and Relaxation that help keep the human organism balanced and in a state of readiness at all times to effectively deal with all challenges in life.



Happy New Year
