Final Fridays – Featured Artist

ISAIAH STEWART

My work has been involved in historical imagery of plains people’s everyday life.  Ranging from the figure, and the relationship to the land.  Illustrations of life from the past intermixed with modern life helps to inform my art by what I seek in life.  The people I study are portrayed like casts in a story with supporting parts of my work.  Big Kansas storm clouds with old souls that still love the land and all of God’s creations that inhabit it.  The horse is the center figure that brings all parties together because of its distinct nature.  The horse knows your soul before you talk, when and if it trusts you to ride, it will know your imbalance and work to put you where you need to be in the center.  I am creating stories to ignite the imagination of my community by celebrating the historical relationship between the two universities in Lawrence, but also many towns across the Midwest that mirror our dynamic.

By appt. until Dec 1, 2019

Journey Into Trance  5Rhythms Workshop

Taught by Jonathan Horan

“Trance is a tricky place, a place not many understand. It’s a mindful state that only happens when you get out of your way and fall into your true self so deeply that something inside clicks and you are simultaneously being and witnessing yourself. “

Gabrielle Roth

We all long for a place to call home, a place where we feel totally connected and at peace. But there is no home unless we find it in ourselves. The way home is a journey into trance. Trance is soul food, an injection of spirit that can carry us for days and weeks through subways and supermarkets, head-trips and heartaches.

In trance we move into the bigger picture. And from this vantage point we can see into the dark of our own hearts and let go of all the things that haunt us, relinquish them, turn them over to the Great Spirit. Sometimes, we are moved by the spirit of wolf, sometimes we are moved by the spirit of river or the spirit of fear or father. If we let go it takes us past our ordinary self into our luminous self. Any energy fully embodied can be a gateway.

Every time we hold our breath, we are holding back the Great Spirit and all its awesome power. But it is the very presence of that power we all deeply crave. We crave it because it is a catalyst; it shakes us up, keeps us real. It takes a lot of preparation to let go of being the mover and allow the self to be moved. In a million unspoken ways, we will be tested and rewarded.

Jonathan Horan is Gabrielle Roth’s son and closest collaborator. He is the Executive Director of her international institute, 5Rhythms Global as well as the Director of The Moving Center School NYC. Jonathan has been immersed in the 5Rhythms practice throughout his life and continues to be a key catalyst in its evolution. He is a member of the core teaching faculty of both training and advanced work and teaches workshops of all levels around the world. his weekly NYC High Vibrations class has been featured in New York Magazine, Breathe, and the Daily News, and was chosen as the hottest movement class in New York by the Village Voice.

Breathwork Healing

With Cassie L. Jones and Abby Young

Join us as we spend time connecting to our breath and our bodies. Our breath is our vital life-force energy that has great healing power. Let’s relax, release, and let go. We All have the innate capacity to heal ourselves. Breathwork is a deeply profound experiential experience that allows for us to release what is no longer serving us…emotionally, physically, mentally, and energetically. We tend to “hold on” to things in our bodies on all levels and most of the time we are unaware of how to move it or maybe even understand why we have this block, pain, or stuck-ness. When we engage deeply with the breath, we allow for us to move through the holding patterns into a deep releasing space.

Lawrence Women’s Temple

Monthly Gathering with Jennifer Welch

Lawrence Women’s Temple is a sacred space that we create for ourselves and our sisters when we come together with a shared intention of spiritual awakening. In Temple, we do not sit around and talk about what we think embodied awakening is, instead we practice stepping directly into a real, lived awakening as we move our awareness from the mental stories we tell ourselves about who we are in the world, into our breath, our bodies and the felt sense of the moment as it arises and moves through us. In Temple, we give ourselves time and space to be breathed and moved by the feminine waters within.

A Taste of our Temple Practices

  • Entering deeper into our divine female bodies, our hips, yonis and breasts, through dance, stretching, and free flow of movement.
  • Becoming one body of female divine essence through touch, dance and movement and spontaneous flow of the moment. (This practice is to open our bodies to more of the divine feminine energy and receive nourishment from each other, strengthening, relaxing, healing and filling up our own cups).
  • Seeing deeply into each other, seeing each woman’s beauty, gifts, most true expression, essence, soul colors and loving each flavor of the divine feminine. Sharing what we see in each woman.
  • Pleasure as a way to presence. Women are made for pleasure and we enjoy that through feeding each other strawberries, smelling incredible flowers, rubbing on yummy oils or any other fun, juicy way we can think of.
  • Feeling all the way to essence, allowing expression of how deeply we feel, being in a free flow of presence with each other, sharing our emotions through bodily and voice expression and creating beauty through that.
  • Sharing our gifts in the circle.
  • Embodying the different aspects of the divine feminine, like Kali, Tara, the Mother, and Aphrodite etc. Supporting each other in expressing qualities we may hide.
  • Prayer & Gratitude, allowing and opening up to our deepest devotion.

The 2019/2020 season will be an open circle, so you can attend once, twice or all eight times that we meet.

Lawrence Women’s Temple is based on the work of Chameli Ardagh and Awakening Women Institute. Much of our practice is based on Chameli’s work.

PLEASE NOTE – The Women’s temple is not a therapy or a support group. It is a space where we come to mirror, celebrate and empower each other. A space where we can drop our masks, and let the beauty of our authentic face be seen in all its glory and pain, passion and vulnerability. In our Women’s temple, we meet beyond the personal, and in this expanded meeting the collective feminine as well as the personal feminine is healed and celebrated.

 

If these practices speak to you, we would love to have you join us in circle. If you have any additional questions, please contact me at 785-760-7259.

Sister Prayers: Self-Portrait

A 5Rhythms Women’s Circle of Movement 

Taught by Laura Martin-Eagle

ARE YOU WILLING TO ENTER THE REALM OF INTIMACY?

~ In-To-Me-I-See ~ 
Dear Sisters, the circle has opened… Take our hands and join our circle of women dedicated to the journey of wild abandon and holy ecstasy~ We dive deep to the realms of intuitive, visceral and instinctual movement to invite and invoke our deepest healing essence as we move our bodies in our shapeshifting beauty, wisdom and power. I look forward to being with you again in all your vulnerability and authenticity.

I hope you will join us on this monthly journey to exposing, expressing and ecstatically being in the body as a woman to see and be seen. We will be safely held in the container of the 5Rhythms movement practice as we use film, digital images and video, drawing and more to create the portrait of the self.

1st Sundays, November-March 1:30-5pm

Cost: $240/$200 early bird until Oct.1
