returns to Unicamp for the eighth season! Move the Body, Clear the Mind, Ignite the Spirit. Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that leads to health and well-being. It is a beautiful blend of movement from the dance arts, the martial arts and the healing arts, based on the pleasure principle. It empowers people of all abilities by encouraging them to find awareness and ease in the way their body moves. This is a time to celebrate the joy of movement and to make new connections, both with ourselves and each other. No experience is necessary. Just come ready to move, groove and rejuvenate! Program fee: $75. For information contact program leader Wendy Roman, Black Belt Nia Instructor, at (519) 793-4687 or firstname.lastname@example.org website: www.rhythmwood.ca.
SOULFUL SINGING, SOULFUL LIVING
Want to sing with more freedom, joy and abandon? Yearn to develop a deeper sense of personal integration and to live with greater passion and purpose? Then Soulful Singing, Soulful Living is for you! This program is offered by Rev. Wendy Luella Perkins, a UU community minister and lifelong singer. A prolific writer of folk songs and meditative chants, her song “Oh We Give Thanks”, in the teal UU hymnbook, and her seasonal song, “Every Night a Holy Night” have been sung in congregations across the continent. Wendy released her CDs “Lucky Life” (original folk songs) in 2010, and “This Very Moment” (meditative chants) in 2011. Soulful Singing is an inclusive and expansive approach to singing that celebrates each person’s unique voice, fosters creativity and play, and nurtures living in the present moment. Soulful Singing is about presence, not performance and all voices are welcomed into the circle of song—complete beginners and experienced singers alike.
