TRADITIONAL TEMAZCAL

Sunday, August 19 / 10a.m. with Gustavo Munguia

Cost 250pesos |
Limited space
Reservation required with 50% deposit at El Charco’s reception of Posada Corazon (Aldama 9) Information: charcodelingeniocomunicacion@gmail.com | Tel:154.8838, 154.4715.

This sweat-lodge steam bath, of ritual and healing character, takes place under the direction of an experienced temazcal leader in the ruins of the hacienda located in the Botanical Garden on the far side of the reservoir.
The combination of heat, humidity and fragrant herbs provides a purifying experience for the body and spirit. Its benefits are multiple: it activates circulation, increases the body’s defenses, eliminates pains, decreases uric acid, relaxes the muscles, regulates the nervous system, stimulates respiration and is excellent for losing weight. We suggest bringing a flashlight for when you go from the temazal to the reception.

Danza del Alma is an unguided, free expression form of dance where the music, and hence the body, follows an arch of rhythm from slow and fluid for warm up, to fast and uninhibited in the middle, to calm and meditative for warm down. Danza del Alma is based on Gabriel Roth’s “5 Rhythms”: This dance is “a soul journey… by moving the body, releasing the heart, and freeing the mind, one can connect to the essence of the soul, the source of inspiration in which an individual has unlimited possibility and potential.” – Gabriel Roth

Class etiquette:

o No outside shoes permitted. Special shoes for dancing inside only may be used.

o No perfume or other scents permitted. Some dancers are allergic.

o No talking permitted on the dance floor during class.

o Wear comfortable clothing. Shirts are required.

o Bring your own towel and drinking water.

o Doors to the dance salon are kept closed for privacy during class.

o No photos without consent of dancers.

Danza del Alma was founded in San Miguel de Allende in 1996. Our mission is to provide a safe and sacred space for all people wishing to explore their spirituality through music and movement.

Miguel Angel Omaña, is a guitar player, studied at the National Conservatory of Music of Mexico. He won many beginner, intermediate and advanced level internal guitar contests, from the third place, up to the first one in various national festivals.
The capacity of the artist to transmit through music any kind of feeling which comprises from compassion, excitement, happiness, love, heartbreak, anger, madness up to frustration, are mental or emotional states of well and/or bad being that we can understand as a "feeling". On the other hand, a physical expertise to execute a clean and fast performance when playing a musical instrument, is what we can understand as a "virtuosity", in order to convey the technic to the highest level as possible in accordance to the interpreter capacity
Miguel , has developed unique skills according to his personal talents, and therefore, he is very glad to offer an special recital.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 8:30am
Sundays at 9am
We play at the diportiva just up from Mega, and in front of the entrance to Los Frailes.

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

The Basics
1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

A Game for Everyone
The USAPA currently estimates there are now over 400,000 players actively playing pickleball.

All Welcome, No Experience or Registration Required

Danza del Alma is an unguided, free expression form of dance where the music, and hence the body, follows an arch of rhythm from slow and fluid for warm up, to fast and uninhibited in the middle, to calm and meditative for warm down. Danza del Alma is based on Gabriel Roth’s “5 Rhythms”: This dance is “a soul journey… by moving the body, releasing the heart, and freeing the mind, one can connect to the essence of the soul, the source of inspiration in which an individual has unlimited possibility and potential.” – Gabriel Roth

Class etiquette:

o No outside shoes permitted. Special shoes for dancing inside only may be used.

o No perfume or other scents permitted. Some dancers are allergic.

o No talking permitted on the dance floor during class.

o Wear comfortable clothing. Shirts are required.

o Bring your own towel and drinking water.

o Doors to the dance salon are kept closed for privacy during class.

o No photos without consent of dancers.

Danza del Alma was founded in San Miguel de Allende in 1996. Our mission is to provide a safe and sacred space for all people wishing to explore their spirituality through music and movement.

04:00pm-  
Cost: 50
Location: St Paul's Church, Cardo 6
Contact:
Website:

Mary Jane Miller is organizing an 8 week directed group for prayer and and contemplation at St Paul's Anglican Church . The focus will be on Advent first and conclude with the Christmas season. We will ask what it means to come into the world, and the spiritual life which is activated as a result. Centering prayer, contemplative prayer and the prayer of quiet are all going to be explored in an effort to open ourselves to listening to God and remembering whose we are.
Beginning December1st and January 19th at St Paul's Church
The format will be simple, 20 minutes of quiet, 20 minutes of conversation, discussion observation, etc and finalize the time with another 20 minutes of quiet. 4 weeks in Advent and 4 weeks following Christmas, 50 pesos donation per session and there is no requirement you come to them all.
Every Thursdays 4 PM
IDEAS to be EXPLORED
Advent tells us Christ is near and
Christmas tells us Christ is here.

Christmas represents God's brilliant idea to become human and walk among us! Why do such a thing? Because we need an image of love for it to grow within us, to show us the way and to have a reference point for what is true, good and lasting love.
Come and prepare a place within yourself. Epiphany is the Christian celebration of what other religions call enlightenment. Enlightenment is the inward realization and consciousness of being identified with who we really are. We are individual expressions or manifestations of God, a wave of energy, light and purpose which flows through us.
"All great spirituality teaches about letting go of what you don't need and who you are not. Then, when you can get little enough and naked enough and poor enough, you'll find that the little place where you really are is ironically more than enough and is all that you need. At that place, you will have nothing to prove to anybody and nothing to protect.
All are welcome to share tier insights and experiences. Peace
