WYC Additional Offerings

Dear Ones,

The WYC remains an oasis of peace and stillness —just as it always has been—  As this oasis moved beyond its walls and into all of our homes, we were tracking something powerful and present within ourselves deepen and grow. Keeping ourselves strong and grounded in practices, we are learning as a community that the essential love that connects us and extends into the larger community, is beyond time and space… it knows no distance. Our practices and teachings have always helped stabilize us in our connection to true self. It seems that now, in this challenging and reflective time, there is a deeper possibility, not only within ourselves but for all people everywhere, to uplift the inner climate of the human family.

We are extending our sense of sheltering together out to the extended community, as our community lives all over our country. We have built a shared sacred space of practice, brick by brick, by each of us creating a special space for our practices in our own homes, imbued with shared intention and interconnection. 

In addition to our usual classes and other programs, we are offering: 
Daily Meditation for all
Discounted Hatha classes as gifts for those of us financially affected or in need of the WYC's quieting atmosphere 
Long distance energy healing sessions from our Reiki healers to those who need distant healing right now

Preparation needed for the guided journey inward is simple: a comfortable seat– chair or floor,  some props for an effortless upright posture, and a quiet protected serene place in your home away from distractions.

It is a special time of sanctuary — in which we gently create a haven, a sanctuary for ourselves in our own homes, a place of peace and presence.

Daily morning meditation is for our community and friends, family and anyone you wish to bring to it knowing there will be sufficient instruction for newcomers to follow and meditate ease-fully.

Do join us! WYC Daily morning meditations at 8:15 am, plus the rest of our full Fall schedule is listed on our schedule page no prior registration is needed to join these morning meditation sessions.

A select number of the mornings with WYC Director, Rudrani, are available via recordsings to enjoy anytime. Click here for meditation recordings

A Reiki Healing Circle is a gathering of Reiki practitioners for the express purpose of practicing Reiki, on themselves and on each other, and asking questions about their practice and about Reiki in general. These particular gatherings will focus on Offering Distant healing, a distinct and powerful part of Reiki practice. In this Circle, everyone gets an opportunity to try it out for themselves in the company of the community.
