Sound & Silence, a guided Exploration

Sunday, April 30th, 2017 from 6:45-8:45pm

302 Stevens Avenue, Portland

Join me for a two-hour guided exploration of sound and silence on Sunday evening, April 30th at the Portland New Church. Through a variety of interactive prompts involving movement and stillness, participants will be led on a journey through their awareness of sound and silence, culminating in a deeper appreciation of:

  • the interplay of sound and silence in everyday speech
  • distinguishing between the voices of Body, Mind, Spirit, and Emotions
  • the relationship between the sacred energy centers (chakras) and sound
  • Principle #3 of the Nia White Belt, Music + 8BC: Language of Sound

RSVP to Erin directly HERE. Suggested workshop price with RSVP $20. Suggested Drop-In price $25. All welcome. No experience required. Bring a cushion, mat, and/or blanket for optimal comfort for sitting on floor or chair. Wear comfortable clothes. Bring an open mind and heart.

Body as Source: Using Nia Tools to Tap Your Creativity

Stay Tuned for the Next Offering of this Workshop! 

Have you ever wondered how people come up with new ideas, or seem to magically think up solutions to problems that vex you to no end? Maybe you have a project in mind but have felt stymied in how you approach it? In this workshop we'll use some of the pearls of Nia and apply them to our lives off the dance floor.

Learn how shifting  your perspective, tapping your 5 senses, seeking balance, and listening and responding from specific areas of your body can help unblock your creative impulses and lead you to swift and decisive solutions, or at the very least valuable insights on current dilemmas!

During this 2-hour workshop we will move, play, and co-create, all the while sharing about the process. Participants will each receive a follow-up packet to take their process to the next level following this workshop.

Erin is luminous and her energy is contagious. I received so much from this experience.

What I appreciate most about Nia with Erin is going at my own pace for my body. I’ve had a lot of injuries and this is the first class that I’ve been able to successfully enjoy.
