Sukha – 30 Days of Presence – Creating opportunities for change
Five Friday mornings online, September 3, 10, 17, 24, October 1: 11 – 12:30 CT
In this 30 day offering, you will have the opportunity to create your own structure and commitment to making whatever changes you feel would bring you more presence, with the accountability, support and structure of a group.
We will begin on Friday, September 3, 2021 to review the plan for the month, and to develop our own individual commitment plans. These might include adding, reducing or eliminating certain foods, patterns or behaviors, taking new actions, developing new habits, or simply heightening awareness of our everyday lives and choices. Each participant will fill out a simple form to understand their dosha – or ayurvedic mind-body type- and we will have a brief overview of the doshas and how understanding them can help us to understand ourselves.
We will then meet every Friday during the month of September to talk about how the week went, what worked, what didn’t, what was challenging, what felt great, how your plan might have been modified to better fit your current lifestyle and desires. You will then be given some suggestions of things to try to support digestion, emotional resilience, and better rest.
This is a 100% judgement free, pressure free, individually directed opportunity for lifestyle changes and considerations. No one tells you what to eat or not eat, what to do or not do, the group format is to give you the chance to make a commitment to yourself and to have it supported in a kind and structured way.
$150 for all five sessions if paid in full by Friday, August 27. $180 after. Please inquire for sliding scale, scholarship, or BIPOC rates. Click here to register.
Inward and outward: sacred reading practices to help us navigate the fall
Monday, August 30, 6:30 – 8:30 PM CT
This year has been a lot of going inward for all of us, and now we are being told it is time to go back out. But how are we just supposed to switch like that? How do we feel connected again? Safe again? Grounded again? Or how do we learn to sit in the absolute unknown?
In this nourishing and inspiring two hour workshop, we will learn a beautiful, simple practice from Christian mysticism called Lectio Divina, a way to enter into sacred scripture, using a variety of sacred texts and poetry. We will use the practice as a springboard to talk about our own experiences of shifting from inward focus to outward engagement, and to help us discern the outward actions most needed, and most authentic to us, right now.
We will learn how to manage individual and collective grief and anxiety, as well as to leave with a list of simple practices we can do every day to create outward structure and inward freedom.
$45. Please go here to register and pay. You will be sent the Zoom link to join the session upon completion of payment.
Please inquire for sliding scale, scholarship, or BIPOC rates.

Personal Retreat with Molly in Mexico
Have you wanted to go on a yoga retreat but been unable to find one that fits your schedule for your needs?
Have you seen retreats that interest you but are missing a key element?
Have you wanted to dive deeper into your own spiritual practice but are unsure just how to do it?
Consider a personalized yoga retreat with Molly in coastal Mexico. Molly has been inspired to create these experiences after years of taking her students on retreats around the world and participating in retreats herself. Her greatest inspiration has been her own personal retreats with her teacher, Ram Dass.
On these individually designed retreats, the student has the opportunity to choose the length of the retreat (four days/three nights or seven days/six nights), the time that works best according to your schedule and the scope and focus of your retreat, including deepening into yoga practices, meditation or personal and spiritual formation.
The retreats also include sharing space with Molly in La Ermita, the sanctuary she built in the small Mexican town she calls home. In addition to the personal work and growth being done while on retreat, there are also plenty of opportunities for adventurous activities, cultural immersion and relaxation.
Contact Molly directly for information, details, dates and rates.
