‘Rising Voices’ Film Screening

‘Rising Voices’ Film Screening

Join SunWater Spa and One Nation Walking Together for a special screening of ‘Rising Voices’, part of the One Nation Film Festival

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at 7 pm
Suggested donation of $7 to $10 — thank you!

One Nation Film Festival takes place on the last Wednesday of each month at SunWater Spa

Florentine Films/Hott Productions, in association with The Language Conservancy, presents a new documentary project: Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi. Five years in the making, this multi-platform project tells the story of a powerful threat to a Native culture. This threat is an insidious, impersonal villain – one that comes through TV sets and social media sites, through Tweets and comic strips and the daily news. The menace is the English language, and the victim seemingly marked for extinction is the Lakota language itself – the language of the Lakota nation, once usually called the Sioux. For the Lakota people, it’s a local problem, but it’s just one instance of a massive global one – a worldwide epidemic of language extinction.

Though the Lakota nation has over 170,000 tribal members, only 6000 of them speak Lakota today. The average age of the native speakers is now almost 70. But Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi. depicts an exhilarating effort by both Lakota and non-Indian people to hold back the floodwaters of history: the day-by-day struggle to save a dying language.

Donations always accepted for One Nation Walking Together, striving to make a positive impact in the lives of Native Americans.

‘Rhythm for your Soul’
with Wendy Bradshaw

Saturday, February 4th from 4 to 7pm
$25 per participant

A special three hour Celebration preparing for Winter as the days grow shorter and cooler and with this come the yearning to rest, to dream, to nourish and nurture your soul.

Chakradance provides you with the ideal space for this by weaving music, color and dancing together. Allow yourself to go beyond the borders of a busy mind and let your creativity flow, come home to yourself. Chakradance is a movement practice for the soul.

We will be exploring each chakra, from the crown to the base, using specific music for each chakra and creating Mandala Art! Movements are free and spontaneous. You will be guided through to each chakra while you enjoy and move to the music. The music for this celebration is Divine! A beautiful way to embrace the coming Autumn and winter months.

Based on the 4000-year old system of the chakras that form the backbone of Eastern philosophies, including yoga and acupuncture, Chakradance is a surprisingly effective, anyone-can-do-it, way to de-stress and rebalance your inner energies.

Chakra Tuning for a New Year

Chakra Tuning for a New Year

With Jessica C Patterson
Musicians accompaniment by Roma Ransom

Sunday, February 12th from 2 to 5 pm
$35 early bird pricing, $45 after February 5th
Soaking included in your ticket price

Chakra-Tuning is a sublime way to celebrate and enter into the new year consciously, freeing us to move into the days ahead with greater clarity, grace, and peace.

The model is comprehensive, in that it addressed all layers of our lives–physical, energetic/breath, emotional, psychological, intuitive, and spiritual. Each chakra corresponds to unique relationships in our lives and is associated with specific asanas, bija (seed) mantras, elements, intentions, and qualities. Using these powerful investigative tools, we can begin to reveal and help heal imbalances such as fear, grief, anger, jealousy, hurt, and resentment. And, because all physical matter is first and foremost energy, sound is a potent component of what we do in this practice. Accompanied by the beautiful musical talent of Roma Ransom, the soundscape will help you focus and align with the potential of each energetic center.

Yoga mats, meditation pillows and blankets will be provided

Please bring a journal, paper and pen/pencil to take notes.
