Most people who come to Heartwood are awestruck by the beautiful Chakra Stained Glass Windows in our Yoga Center. Artist Bonnie Francais is both a yoga teacher and artist who shares stained glass classes as a way of inviting mindful participants to produce something beautiful for display at home reflective of their yoga journey, while also capturing the healing and deeply calming effects of being engaged in art and personal expression as a creative meditation. Projects include lotus, hamsa's, Om symbols, hearts, shamanic feathers, wind-chimes and other lovely images. Due to space limitations, the issue of safety and helping each participant learn techniques one on one, this class is limited to 5 participants. Stained glass project classes are offered approximately every 6 weeks.
Each class 65.00 (Class 40.00, Supply fee 25.00)
Feb. 3 - Hearts
March 3 - Feathers
April 7 - Hamsa

For those serious about learning to capture their authentic voice to tell their story, this formal writing class explores theory, technique and stylistic writing elements. Formatted like a critique group with the lesson emerging from the work, students bring 5 up to pages of their writing to review and learn from as they develop skill and hone their gift. Exercises are given at the end of each class to take home to inspire the next week's session.. This class is taught by Ginny Shaddock, MFA in Creative Writing.
