Our new classes this past month did fabulously well, surely in part because of our $5 drop in offer. We know many of you will keep coming back to OmBase to continue taking those classes and others as well!
And because so many of you appreciate the lower price, we’ve decided for now to add one $5 drop in class each month. Please read on for more about this, as well as other new offerings!
Sound Meditation & Toning Circle
THU 7:30-9 pm
Cost: by donation
During this weekly offering, we start with a sound meditation, where you simply sit or lie quietly and allow the gentle sounds of bells, crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls and chimes to soothe your body and mind. Then you are invited to tone together as a group, where you are encouraged to use your voice and let sounds come through you.
Toning is the elongation of a note or tone using breath and voice. It is an active vocal healing meditation that can help you re-discover your authentic voice, reduce stress, restore balance and connect you with the deeper rhythms and vibrations of your being. No singing experience is required.
Dagmar is a gifted sound and energy healer with a private practice in SW Portland. Trained in shamanic work, sound healing, Spiritual Response Therapy and Reiki, she helps individuals come into balance and connect more deeply to their soul’s path.
Guided From Within: Tools for Revelationary Living
with Jay Fields
SUN 2/7 – 7 pm
This event is a talk Jay will be giving. Please come early to get seated. Chairs and zafus available, or bring your own cushion.
“I will share with you the Revelationary Living Cycle, a model that I created that is based on Erich Schiffmann’s approach to yoga and on the theories of deep ecology and integral education. A mixture of personal stories from my life and my work with clients, current research, and simple experiential explorations, in this talk I will reveal how:
· The Revelationary Living Cycle is concerned with how to be more consistently in tune with your relationship with Spirit and offers simple tools for how that connection can inform your every day actions.”
Feel free to email Jay with any questions you may have.
February’s $5 class
WED 7:15 pm
We have decided to offer the $5 drop in class every month for a while!
Take advantage of this month’s class: Wednesday’s Blisyoga with Todd every Wed at 7:15 pm.
Typically starts with a 20-30 minute guided meditation, breathing, and sounding followed by some gentle movements to warm up.
Often we’ll stay on the floor for most of the class, but each class is different and we may find ourselves on the bars. We use a lot of props, as they lend and offer support in a wider range of movement possibilities.
Many, if not most of the movements and poses may are different from what you may have learned in more classic hatha and vinyasa style classes.

Annie Meyer‘s art
NOW at OmBase
You can see Annie Meyer’s art hanging at our studio now!
Annie is a local artist Todd and I found a few years back and we love her art!
“I consider myself a painter, but work in 3 different mediums: Painting (primarily oil and acrylic paintings), monotype prints, and ceramic tiles. Essentially my work is the same theme, but expressed differently due to the difference in mediums. My subject manner is the human figure, and abstract French Landscapes. I have been drawing the figure since high school, and I work directly from a live model.
All of my work is original. I have no reproductions.”
Everything that is hanging at OmBase is for sale, so ask the front desk for more info, or check out Annie’s website.
Calling all old calendars…
Have you seen Megan’s work at OmBase? She makes lovely recycled cards out of calendars!
What better way to recycle your calendar? Knowing that somebody, somewhere, is receiving the image you’ve looked at for months….
If you still have a 2009 calendar (or older!) that you have no use for, please bring it to OmBase and we’ll get it to Megan.
Favorites are nature, pets, scenery of any kind.
Hawaii, here I come?
You all know Joanne in a sense, as she’s the architect that designed OmBase.

Joanne has a sweet rental home in Hawaii she wants you to know about. You can go here to find out more.
