Experience the Contemplative Life

Our beautifully inlaid 19-foot walking labyrinth holds space for our community’s practices in contemplative arts.  Diverse and creative forms of contemplation invite greater moral awareness, insight, wisdom and compassion, through a deepening celebration of humanity and healing.  New teachers and new classes are always welcome.

Current Studio Classes

  • This Mind Body Spirit Group offers a powerful, effective combination of research-based healing modalities to help participants deal with life change, stress or illness in an intimate and supportive setting. 

    Group members will learn self-care skills necessary to transform the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual dimensions of their lives. Each week, we will explore a mind-body-spirit modality that can be immediately integrated into daily life.

    Groups are comprised of adults of all ages and backgrounds. The small group setting of 8 to 10 people allows for sharing, connection and support. The group will experience the research-based healing modalities taught through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine. The series is educational, supportive, participatory, structured and fun. 

    Reserve your space by emailing Claire and Jane at ecololiving@gmail.com. The next group is on Mondays from 4:30 – 6:30 pm, October 14-December 2, 2019.  Download: Ecololiving Brochure Winter 2019

  • Julie Jack, MS, MA, is offering group classes in Yoga to Heal Trauma, with new sessions beginning Summer 2019, for those who have experienced trauma, supportive family and caregivers.  

    Virtue Medicine is very pleased to donate our support for this important work, sharing Julie’s commitment to the use of healing bodywork in the treatment of trauma and educating mental health and crisis agencies about the advantages of using body-centered therapies for healing work.
