– Shakti Penelope, M.A.

Family Yoga

Family Yoga
Saturday, September 14th

Family Yoga is a precious time to share time exploring yoga together. This class will introduce partner poses and yoga stories that you can take away with you to practice at home together. And offer a time and place to relax together and refresh. It is a playful pause in this busy world to be together in a fun, connecting way and to walk out feeling grounded with your family.

Soul Unleashed: A Self-Care R/Evolution

Soul Unleashed: A Self-Care R/Evolution!  

We’ve all been feeling it – our Earth is changing, and along with her, our lives are changing.  We are all being asked to step up and open up as our perceptions of ourselves and reality expand along with our consciousness.  

Chances are you are not the same person you used to be – you’re riding the waves of change, yet you’re not sure where this journey is taking you.  One thing is for sure – the Earth needs each one of us healthy and whole.  We need to be strong enough to stand in our truth and demand a kinder world as we birth a new Paradigm.

It is time for a Self-Care R/Evolution!  Our Souls are bursting at the seams and ready to come fully online through new attention to Embodiment.  

Hundreds of thousands of individuals across the globe are onto something big, and it’s time to say it outloud: We need to shift the way we’re living, as the ways we’ve been living have led us to a time of crisis.  To do that, we need to take care of ourselves in a new and more intentional way –learning to care for our body-mind-spirits, practicing new ways to love and relate to ourselves and each other, and remembering the importance of our relationship with nature.  We are being called to be more PRESENT, to become whole, to own our power, to be of service, and to express our spirits as our unique selves.

JOIN US!!~

What is this event??

It’s a Spiritual Staycation!  Join others who are curious about the New Paradigm.  Experience Qi Gong, Qoya, Conscious Parenting, a Shamanic Healing Session, and more!  Join with others and build this momentum … Hear stories of awakening and share yours~

How was it created??

Several months ago, like-minded individuals in Indianapolis birthed an idea for Soul Unleashed: A Self-Care R/Evolution.  Inspired by our city’s Spirit & Place Festival (this year’s theme: R/Evolution!), we had the desire to share awareness and information about our experiences during these times on Planet Earth, and to create opportunities to participate.  We seek to push the boundaries of traditional concepts by inviting openness to exploring the phenomena around us and within us.

Come join us as we create an energetic container to hold three weeks of experiences and exploration.  We begin on the eve of the New Moon with our opening open house and intention ceremony Thursday, August 29th.  We conclude with a Fall Equinox celebration on Monday, September 23rd.  In between, we will offer a sampling of experiences and classes … for some, a beginning, for others, an opening, still others – a continuation and deepening.  We are all at different stages and phases with our awakening!

This event offers new and unique ways to connect with your Soul and your journey to Health and Wholeness!

Self-Inquiry Meditation Circle feat. The Work of Byron Katie

 Next Meditation Circle: Monday, September 9th @ 6pm
.

Join Certified Helpline Facilitator, Laura Bobeck and Amna Awad in our Gathering Room for a conversation about the work of Byron Katie.

 .We invite you to slow down with yourself and join us in the simple and profound meditative experience of sitting in the four questions and turnarounds of The Work of Byron Katie.

At each MeetUp, we spend the majority of our time actually doing The Work so you can have the experience and take it with you. The Work is not therapy, philosophy, advice, or religion. It’s a way to tap into your own inner wisdom by identifying your stressful thoughts and questioning them and noticing what answers arise for you.

Experience the peace movement of self inquiry and untether your natural clarity and joy! You are welcome whether you are new or experienced to The Work.

I invite you to visit The Work website at http://www.thework.com and join us to experience TheWork for yourself.

.

For the love of inquiry,

The Playful Soul has Joyfully been Adopted!

I am deliciously delighted to introduce you to the new dynamic, creative, passionate, soulful and very happy owners of The Playful Soul…
Erik Witter & Kristin Okeley!

After months of soul searching, I decided to offer The Playful Soul up for adoption. My spirit had become restless and began calling me into a place of deeper soulful exploration and expression. The Playful Soul was ready to soar into its’ next greater expression and so was I. However, I knew I had taken The Playful Soul as far as I could…and there was so much more yet to be born! So on Leap Day with trembling hands, I hit the send button on my computer and on the wings of angels my intention flew.

A Match Made in Heaven

The Universe flawlessly orchestrated the crossing of paths of friends in the most Divine ways. Erik & Kristin had decided to open a community based spiritual center and a mutual friend of ours happened to bump into them after my announcement. We found ourselves at dinner a week after my announcement and the playful soul was lovingly spoken for! Their astrologer gave us two potential dates for the official transaction and on this past Saturday, May 7th with the New Moon in full force, The Playful Soul was adopted and is now in the very capable, inspired, soulful, loving, creative and jazzed hands of this couple and we all could not be happier! My heart is so deeply grateful!

 

erik and kristinKristin is the owner and lead designer of the exquisite and acclaimed Kitchens by Design in Indianapolis. Erik is an entrepreneur as well as a very gifted songwriter and composer of conscious music. Together they powerfully anchor the masculine and feminine energies for our beloved Soul to grow and reach and touch even more souls! They have been busily and tirelessly working all weekend transforming and enriching The Playful Soul with new scrumtious merchandise and many many surprises you simply MUST come see! They plan to add more classes, more events, more Music, more services and more treats for the soul in the boutique! With these strong hearts and compassionate spirits at the helm, The Playful Soul will soar even higher! Please stop by and meet these darlings! They are so delighted to meet you and to continue building and deepening our community along with you!

Singing Our Soul Songs

The Playful Soul opened June 1st, 2010. We began very humbly with a small boutique in the cozy front room of our adored now purple house on Ferguson street. I would hang a little sign on the door and close for my Angel Therapy Sessions. It was the realization of a dream come true and they were the sweetest of days! In 2013, we expanded into the whole house now lovingly known as The Fairy Cottage. Our boutique doubled in size, we began offering classes & workshops, along with the varied services of multiple holistic therapists. It was all I dreamed and more! I had no idea when I began that we would host nationally known as well as internationally known authors, wayshowers, artists and more! My vision was to offer a loving place for us all to explore our consciousness, to discover who we really are, to touch the stardust of our own souls. We are just getting started!
I’ve always considered myself to be the Keeper of the Keys of this magical place. It has been a gorgeous journey filled with love, depth, happiness, FUN and incredible growth and transformation for me personally! I sang one of my truest Soul Songs by opening The Playful Soul and now I’m singing a new song by releasing it to this extraordinarily dynamic and darling couple, Erik & Kristin!
Hayley and I will be working closely with Kristin and Erik as we transition. I will continue to lead the Friday Bells for Peace meditation and see clients at The Playful Soul. My soul has been calling me deeper within for a couple of years. Now I will have the freedom to answer this most seductive invitation to dance with the Cosmos, to be her scribe and a brighter conduit for humanity. For now I am curious to see how She will use me. Shine On Sweet Ones! Shanti Shanti Shanti
