Collage: Vision through Play

On Sunday afternoon, July 24th, we’ll be hosting a collage making class here at JOY!

Using the play of cut and paste, gain insight into yourself, and empower your dreams.

No experience is necessary. Just bring an open heart, grab a friend, and come ready to have some fun. You might be surprised by the results.

The collage workshop is from 1-3 pm. All supplies are provided. You are also welcome to bring any images or magazines that speak to you. Class fee is just $15. Please let us know you’re planning to attend. Thanks.

Not coincidentally, July 24th marks the end of the past in the Mayan calendar. This special time offers us an opportunity to step out of our usual routines for a few days so that we might create our futures more intentionally.

World Tai Chi Day

Today was World Tai Chi Day or World Wellness Day or Global Tai Chi Wave Day or…
This morning, April 30th, folks all over the world gathered together to practice Tai Chi at 10 a.m. It was a 24-hour wave of peaceful Tai Chi and QiGong with participants across the global community contributing their peace and focus.

Here at JOY, we just happen to have our regular beginner’s Tai Chi scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturdays. How fortuitous!

This morning was warm and sunny, so we had our first outdoor group of 2016. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, the ocean was making its own waves, and we had a lovely time sharing with new friends in the warm sunshine of a green spring morning. back lawn at JOY 72

We even had a little bunny watching from the sidelines.

If you’d like to join us for gentle mindful movement, you’re quite welcome. No special knowledge or skill or equipment is necessary. We practice gentle, peaceful Tai Chi, not martial arts. Each class is uniquely tailored to the participants, and modifications are offered for each move.
If you’re visiting Yachats, Waldport or Seal Rock on a Saturday morning, come enjoy the energizing benefits of a gentle Tai Chi class.

Saturday evening silent meditation

Saturday evenings at 6p,
we host a meditation group here in Yachats at JOY.

Our meditations are
non-sectarian, open to all who walk in Love
and know, or want to learn how, to sit in silence.

Often, we start with a guided meditation, to assist people in relaxing into a meditative state,
then we are silent, allowing each individual to have their own peaceful and personal experience.

Meditation lasts about a half an hour.
This is a unique opportunity to sit in sacred silence
with like-hearted people. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the welcoming and peaceful atmosphere here at JOY.
From beginners to long-time meditation teachers, there is space and blessings for all who are willing to sit and breathe and BE and
tune in to Life.
