WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

Yoga & Meditation Circle for Writers with Angela Derecas Taylor (in person at HVWC)

December 11, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Mats will be in a circle. First 40 minutes you will be in a restorative pose, while I take you through a guided relaxation, then there will be a 10 minute tea break. The next hour will be for writing, there will be prompts if you want them. The mini-retreat will end with 10 minutes of Sivasana with legs up the chair.

Participants need to bring their own Yoga mat as well as pads, journal, paper and writing implement or laptop.
