    Suggested Donation: $5 minumum

    Has your little one outgrowing baby lapsit groups?

    Maybe she’s started some fun new behaviors like refusing to get dressed or eating only cheese?

    Perhaps your dear little tot is asserting his newly growing personality to you in other ways.

    If this new phase has you feeling a little overwhelmed, this is the group for you!

    Facilitated by licensed social worker, Laura McCarthy, this group is space where we can discuss “interesting” toddler behaviors together, and get solid information about toddler development. Support and information can be powerful tools to bring change (and sanity!) to your growing family. Topics may include but are not limited to tantrums, potty training, mealtimes and more. Please join us and connect with other families of toddlers!

     

    Sound Journey Through Gongs and Himalayan Bowls with Crown of Eternity

    Crown of Eternity Sounds at Shining Light Prenatal Education, Pittsburgh PA3 Sessions: 2:00-3:30 | 4:00-5:30 | 6:00-7:30 

    Cost per session: $20 in advance | $25 there after

    Join gong lovers, yogis, and healers, Gallina and Mike Tamburo from Pittsburgh’s Crown of Eternity as you vibrate and tune into your inner self-healer, inviting a state of harmony and bliss. Bathe in waves of sound from multiple gongs, bells and metal singing bowls. The deep complex harmonics of multiple gongs quickly silence the mind and entrain the brain into a spontaneous state of deep meditation. The rhythmic sound oscillations of therapy grade Himalayan bowls placed on or around the body penetrate into the tissues and are often experienced as a full body sound massage that allows us to let go—letting go of stress, worries, anxieties, doubt, fears and feelings that have a negative effect on our health and life. Listeners often describe out of body experiences, seeing beautiful colors behind their eyes, past life impressions, expanded awareness and higher states of consciousness. We will begin to prepare the body to enter a state of healing and receptivity through the sacred practices of guided meditation, breathwork, or deep listening. We will then relax deeply to the sounds of multiple gongs for a vibrational experience like no other!!!
    Please bring a yoga mat, blanket or cushion for your comfort for an extended period of lying on the floor.  A limited amount of chairs will be available, however the session is best received lying down.

    Space is limited! These events often sell out.  Advance registration is strongly advised!!!

    This Reiki Circle is open to everyone, whether you are familiar with Reiki, are energy friendly, or exploring alternative healing options. Results of receiving a Reiki treatment may be reduced stress, acceptance of major life transitions, removal of things that are no longer serving you a purpose, and many more.

    Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes healing. Reiki is not a massage but a technique of lying on hands while the client is fully clothed.
