We all deal with exhaustion on a daily basis; most days in fact start and end with some sense of feeling tired and over stimulated. Take time during this holiday season to care for yourself and fill your bucket first with some much-needed relaxation so that you can then spread holiday cheer freely to others. Urban Zen Integrative Therapy is about self-care on a daily basis, not just when you are feeling fatigued and worn out.

Sound Bath – Sacred Tibetan Singing Bowls

Date:  Sunday, January 6, 2019
Time:  7:00 – 8:00 PM
Fee:  $20

Pre-registration is requested by Friday, January 4, 2019.

Description:  Come and immerse yourself in beautiful sounds that are healing to your body, mind and soul. Relax laying down or sitting comfortably while the vibrations of the Himalayan Singing Bowls wash over you bringing you quickly to a deep state of relaxation. The Himalayan Singing Bowls are crafted from 7 metals that make a musical ‘singing’ sound when played with a mallet.  In addition to a primary tone, singing bowls produce a complex series of subtle overtones that create a uniquely soothing sound. The art of creating Tibetan singing bowls has been handed down from generation to generation within family clans. Sandra’s bowls are made by a family clan whose work can be traced back to the time of the Buddha.  Sandra trained several years in the Shuniya tradition which honors the ancient foundation of sound healing created by Master Tibetan and Nepalese practitioners.Please arrive promptly and bring your own yoga mat.  Sandra will be doing a short presentation about the history, science and tradition of this healing practice.  You will be in a resting position, laying down or sitting, for approximately 60 minutes to allow for a deep level of relaxation.  At the end, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and share your experiences with the practitioner.

Fee:  $40

Pre-registration is requested by Monday, January 7, 2019.

Description:  How can we reduce stress and burnout from caring for our loved one? Are there tools that can be learned when you are feeling overwhelmed, irritable, angry, or sad? Do you have moments when your mother with Alzheimer’s disease has asked the same doggone question all day long, you know she can’t help it, but it is trying your last nerve.

What do you do?
Scream (sometimes), cry (sometimes), or run (wishful thinking)? Is there a better way to respond?

The answer is YES.

In Urban Zen Integrative Therapy, we teach family caregivers to pause before reacting. How? By noticing sensations in the body or observing the breath. Slowing down enough to mom’s constant questions and figuring out how to respond with compassion.

What is UZIT?
Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) is a layering of relaxation techniques that includes: Mindful Movement, Restorative Yoga, Meditation, Reiki, and Essential Oils to reduce stress in daily life. In this two-hour UZIT workshop we will address: anxiety, insomnia, and exhaustion; caregivers will walk away feeling renewed, refreshed, and recharged plus walk with tools that they can use in their daily life. No yoga experience necessary. Please dress in layers for warmth and comfort.

Lori Guth Moffett is a certified Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master, Director of the UZIT Program at Zusman Hospice, and UZIT Master Teacher. Since 2013 Lori has sat at the bedside of the dying; she believes bearing witness is the heart and soul of the UZIT practice and her best teachers are those who are in that bed taking their last breath. The only way Lori is able to do work at the bedside of the dying is caring deeply for her mind, body, and spirit; by spending time with people and animals she loves, the UZIT practice, being in nature, working out, signing and volunteering with Harmony Project Choir, and attending Friday night Shabbat Services at Temple Israel.
