Meditation for Stress Reduction

Facilitated by Gina DaVanzo; assisted by Lida Martin, RScP

Gina DaVanzo is certified by Dr. Deepak Chopra and the Chopra Center for Wellness in Primordial Sound Meditation.  Gino will talk about the experiences that led her down the path to the Chopra Center.  She will share the amazing changes and results in her life since meditating.  She will cover what Primordial Sound Meditation is, its origins, how it works, and the benefits of a regular practice. 

Gino will also cover the topic of stress, what stress is, how it shows up without us even knowing about it, and how it affects all of us.  She will also address our thoughts which are the most common hindrance to meditation.  We will then be guided into a Silent Mantra based meditation with the four soul questions.  Afterwards, there will be a Q & A.

Any questions please contact Lida Martin at 805-890-2581 or email lidamartinloveslife@gmail.com

Love Offerings accepted.

Way of Council – Live via Zoom

Facilitated by Doreen Palermo, RScP, & Lonnie Cassidy, RScP

VCSL introduces The Way of Council, a practice that offers a way of communicating which encourages attentive listening as well as honest and compassionate expression.  This practice elicits an experience of true community recognizing that each voice needs to be heard; that every person has a gift and a story to share.

Come join us on the 4th Wednesdays of each month where we will gather Live, via Zoom, and listen to each other’s stories.  

** Please join the zoom session on-time at 630pm.  In an effort to provide a sacred space without interruptions, once Council begins, we will close the call at 6:40pm (10 minutes after start time).  This session will also not be recorded.

If you have any questions, contact Doreen Palermo, RScP, at (805) 798-1258 or doreenpalermo@yahoo.com.     

Love Offerings accepted.

5th Wednesday – July 29, 6:30
