Life Center Stage

Through committed partnership, we can make a huge difference! Given the opportunity, every one of us wants and needs to be seen, heard, connect, and live a purposeful life without stigma or shame. By creating this outreach program series, we can bridge the existing divide by educating through personal stories, inspiring performances and creative individual and social development.

Rhythm for Life
Facilitated by Vicki Genfan

The class combines the meditative practice of connecting with our own pulse, and the use of simple movements, clapping and 'talking syllables' to give us a ‘full body’ practice session in moving from chaos to order, stress to peace, fear and anxiety to love. As we build our rhythmic fluidity, we build trust in our own ability to ‘auto correct’ when we find we’ve gone astray.


Performance Workshop
Facilitated by Lorraine Ferro

Lorraine Ferro - Teaching Artist

Once a week for eight weeks, artists participate in class discussions, in depth exercises and presentations of material to explore and break through the fears and blocks that can sometimes turn our free-flowing creative expression into a “deer in the headlights” expression!


Breathwork and Vibrational Healing
Facilitated by Elizabeth Hanifin, LCSW and Vicky Mulligan

Integral Breath Therapy developed by Carol A. Lampman, is a highly personal, experiential process that uses specific breathing techniques to clear out physical, mental and emotional blocks or stresses.  This is a safe and proven method of utilizing simple breathing practices to quickly and easily enter into a non-ordinary state of consciousness.  Vibrational Healing employs quartz crystal bowls to restore and rebalance the energy centers of the body.
