Rising You: a workshop on vibrations supporting the mind, body and soul

This workshop will break down the different ways you can rise your vibration though food, environment and movement, creating mindfulness and a more fulfilling life. The higher your vibration is, the more you feel balanced physically, emotionally and mentally. You experience greater personal power, clarity, peace, love, and joy. This will benefit you greatly in life ups and downs. Having the tools to rise your vibration will help you make better decisions with a clear mind, ending in better results. The event is free, but donations are welcome.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Bethany Block uses mindful therapy in coaching clients to get to the root of sickness, depression, anxiety, unhealthy habits, and stress. She has been working in holistic teaching for 10 years.

“I believe acknowledging where it began and providing tools to work though the events of the past will reset the mind to make healthier life choices. I also use a science-based approach when working on the physical side of treatment, using herbal medicine and nutrition to allow the body to heal naturally.”

–Bethany Block

Gender (Beyond the Binary): a pop-up dialogue at Little Space Studio

Explore gender (beyond the binary) with our reading and discussion of Who Are You? by Brook Pessin-Whedbee. This children’s book introduces common terms like ‘nonbinary’ and ‘cisgender’ and helps unpack the misinformation we’ve all been taught about gender. After the reading, we’ll learn from each other’s diverse personal experiences. In a facilitated discussion, we’ll explore questions like “What is social identity?” and “Why do pronouns matter?” You’ll go home inspired and informed, with a better understanding of yourself and the people around you. Registration for the event is free but seating is limited, so click the Eventbrite link to reserve your spot: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gender-beyond-the-binary-a-pop-up-dialogue-at-little-space-studio-tickets-58660093920

Business Improv: January Jams


Business Improv is back by popular demand! This workshop in our business improv series will focus on building your team’s confidence, creativity, and charm. If you’re thinking, “But I’m not very funny,” great! You actually don’t have to be funny at all (even though you probably are). Yes, improv can create hilarious moments, but it isn’t about making jokes. At its core, improv is about learning to be present, making affirming choices in-the-moment, and actively listening to your team as you work together to spontaneously create something no one else ever has before. And that’s a tool-kit every professional needs. 

Tickets are only $10. Bring your office team or just a friend!
