February's First Friday Forum on the 7th,
features Guest Speaker Mason Lord who will discuss the Enneagram Personality Test
Come and discover the basics of the Enneagram. Determine your type and how knowing your type will help you grow as an individual and in relationships. Learn how this system will assist you in business management and in spirituality contexts. You will leave with the knowledge of the first principles so you can explore the enneagram as deeply as you wish. Join in this fun and lively discussion for self-discovery and personal growth.
Mason Lord is the owner of a residential design/build remodeling company, Hudson Valley Preservation, located in Kent. Being in the business of helping people improve their homes he finds the relationships he has with his clients, employees and collaborators to be complex. In the early 2000’s he discovered the Enneagram System. The enneagram is a model of the human psyche understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types. Mason has found understanding the human psyche to be invaluable as he manages personalities, especially couples that don’t always agree on how to upgrade their home!
Fifteen years ago he started to practice yoga and meditate regularly. During the winter season he will disappear for a week on a silent, solitary retreat to a house in the Catskills.
In a loud and chaotic world, sometimes you need music to bring you fully into the present, so you can then let go of the chaos you left at the door. During Yoga Rocks, music will be a fun and playful way to stay focused, present and energized through the practice while enjoying songs you love or will soon love. This is an All Levels class that will move quickly, providing a strong practice that will lead to a satisfying savasana.

The practice of Kundalini Yoga weaves together the earth realm with the spiritual. It provides physical exercises, energetic pranayamas, meditations and resounding mantras that expand awareness and raise consciousness. It shifts the physical body as well as stirs the soul and opens the heart to loving and living life at a higher vibration.

Sexual Energy is the most powerful and vital energy in the human body. Kundalini Yoga teaches us how to raise the sexual energy up the spine where it can be used for spiritual development. When we raise the sexual energy from the lower, physical planes to the higher, more subtle planes of consciousness, we allow this sacred energy to manifest in a variety of ways...healthy boundaries, compassionate communication and expressive creativity. As such, the sexual energy is now a vehicle for fulfilling one’s divine destiny.
