Katia Kyte

Katia Kyte

With Katia Kyte (and Sasha!)
Tuesday, May 12 • 2-3pm
Delivered LIVE via Zoom
(Follow-up class to show Katia your Mandala will be held May 19)

Spark your creativity by creating and coloring mandalas. This activity can help you relax, bring a sense of calm into your life and lower your anxiety level. Mandala is a great tool to use for emotional expression, self-healing, and self-exploration. Design your own art with stencils or templates – or from scratch, using colored pencils, pens, markers, oil pastels, crayons, watercolor and even acrylics. Katia will provide instructions on how to use them. If you can draw a circle and a square, you are on the path to creating your own mandala. They can be as complex or as simple as you want them to be. Rediscover your own story by finding your own expression. The process of repetition in your mandala is a relaxing activity. The group will talk about color theory to help you create interesting color combinations, as well as the symbolic meanings of the colors used.  Participants should have the following handy: Pen, paint, paper, compass, ruler, and old clothes to paint in.

Healthy Diet, Healthy Planet

Healthy Diet, Healthy Planet

Diseases like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are quite often food-born illnesses which are directly correlated with our Western diet of rich, animal-based and/or processed foods. These foods are virtually absent in a Whole-Food, Plant-Based diet which emphasizes whole (living) plant-foods.  Many studies have indicated that whole plant foods have the potential to not only prevent but reverse these common disease processes. The WFPB vegan diet has been dubbed the healthiest of all dietary plans by various centers of academia.  A plant-based lifestyle has the power to reduce one’s eco-footprint and impact on our over-burdened healthcare system. This class will debunk modern myths about nutrition, show evidence of the healing power of plants, and provide practical methods to put you on a path towards plant-based living.
