Classes in the H.A.R.T. Method:

Beyond Maya Abdominal Therapy

Class Menu




Holistic Abdominal Relief Therapy with roots in ancient and indigenous cultures. Originally a midwifery technique, it supports relief with reproductive health for female and male anatomy, digestion and urinary issues, as well as back pain challenges. Abdominal Therapies are practiced by Traditional Healers from many indigenous cultures around the world. In Central America, healers of all types utilize abdominal treatments to help people with fertility issues, as well as other reproductive challenges such as prostate, endometriosis, fibroids, polyps, cervical health, uterine position, urinary/bladder concerns, digestion and even back and pelvic pain. As Practitioners of the H.A.R.T. Method: Holistic Abdominal Relief Therapy, we are able to support and aid reproductive, urinary, back, and pelvic issues.

Red Tent Steam Ceremony

Next date TBA

with Kim Hart, Deb Erickson, and Sound by Maggie Rosek - $99

Share an evening steeped in the energy of the Divine Feminine.

We will enter a candlelit Red Tent, where we will gather in Sacred Circle moving deeply into safe, nourishing, sacred listening with our own divine feminine energy. Live sound of drum, gong, voice, string, and wind instruments will bathe us during our journey. The bowl of our pelvis, the center of our being, holds our sacred reproductive organs, as well as carries many of our patterns, beliefs and feelings. This can bring us to clarity about our personal experience with our feminine nature and connection to our deepest sacred self.

We will explore with Breath, Sound, Movement, Meditation, and Sacred Steam the pelvic floor and reproductive organs. There will be time for reflection and journaling.

This ceremony is excellent for increasing consciousness with our divine feminine energy. Whether you wish to develop or deepen your relationship to menstrual cycles, fertility, menopausal wisdom or your deeper heart space, to name a few possibilities. This is a very special way to connect more deeply and fully as well as clear anything which no longer serves you.

This is a limited space event, we will have 8-10 participants only, please reserve your space early. You will be fully clothed or draped the entire evening. Please note if you are in your moon-time you will need to reschedule to the next offering of this event.
