January Newsletter

Greetings everyone! 2020 has been such an interesting year for everyone! As a collective I am sure we are ready to let go and move into a NEW YEAR! Let's do it with Kindness and let's do it Together! At The Awakening Realm our mission is to Awaken and Enlighten hearts and minds while connecting and yoking in community! We provide a loving, non-judging environment that is safe for everyone to unravel their personal mysteries and move into connection with their destiny. Our door is open to anyone and we aim to provide many different healing and therapeutic modalities because we know that each beautiful soul is an authentic and unique expression of their own and not every tool works the same for all. We look forward to working with you on your New Year Sankalpa (Intention) on what you desire for your life and we hope that The Awakening Realm can be a stepping stone to aid in your journey and help guide you on your path! Much Love!

Awakening your Spirit through Ecstatic Dance…. No Dance Skills Necessary! Are you looking to get back in tune with your body? Have you been neglecting the movements of your soul? Let us help you take the pressure off, by honoring your body through movement. Join Brandy as you dance to the rhythm of your own souls. Ecstatic dance is a great way to get the body moving, freeing your mind and body, while connecting to yourself and others in a safe and healthy space. Ecstatic Dance is an expressive form of dance that doesn’t follow any certain steps, other than the steps of one’s own heart. Ecstatic Dance empowers all body’s and walks of life to reconnect to one’s inner being. We will be moving our bodies to the sound of tribal music, so we can connect deeply to our inner warrior. We have great knowledge that lies within us and Ecstatic Dance is a beautiful way to express this knowledge. We’ll start with a sacred drumming circle to protect our space and close with journaling. I encourage, each soul to bring an alter item to add to the drumming circle, which will help with connecting mind, body and soul during the dance. Dress in comfortable attire and come with an open mind to reconnect with your true self.

This is all about getting great exercise, freeing your mind and body, and connecting with yourself and your community in a safe, healthy space. No dance experience needed. Do yoga, stretch, dance like no one’s watching!

Cost is $20 for non-members or $15 for members. Sign up online or use the mindbody app!

The goal with this class is to tap into the core of our creative BE-ing through various prompted creative writing ideas. When we write we tap into our subconscious mind... when tapping into our subconscious mind we are able to bring thoughts and emotions to the surface that we may or may not have known were there. Come join us with a journal and Pen in Hand. There is no right or wrong way to create in this class - the only goal is to get you in tune with your creative self conscious mind. Cost is $15 and you can reserve your spot online at or use the free Mindbody app! See you there!

Curious? Not sure what yoga is all about? This workshop is for you.


We will begin by learning a brief history and what exactly yoga is. Next, breaking down some common yoga poses, focusing on alignment for safety and understanding. We'll touch on what you might expect in different types of yoga classes so you can choose the style that best suits you and your needs, the use of props, as well as go over some common studio etiquette. To wrap up we'll do a yoga class using some of the poses we've learned so you can experience some benefits of yoga and gain the confidence needed to attend your first yoga class. If you've wondered if yoga might be right for you, or if you want an opportunity to strengthen your foundation of yoga, we hope you'll join Brian for this fun and informative course.

Manifesting Through the Heart ~ The Law of Attraction Demystified What mystics have long known, and areas of science are beginning to recognize, is the power of the Heart.
