Sacral Chakra Workshop with Leah Guy

31144249_1136685079806922_6052039516305227776_nWednesday, May 23rd at 7 PM at Erin Kumpf Acupuncture & Herbs LLC located at 212 Palisade Ave

This Sacral (2nd) Chakra Workshop is designed to help women understand how to free the flow of emotions and energy and reunite to the passions and creativity in your life. Unhealthy mindsets and emotional blocks keep us stagnant in our ability to trust in deep intimacy, initiate creativity, have meaningful personal relationship and potentially keeps us from optimal physical health.

“The Feeling Center” is located in the area of the lower abdomen and governs the reproductive organs, elimination organs, pelvic region, lower back, hips and closely relates to our root chakra and sense of stability and safety. If you’ve had trauma, abuse or fear surrounding relationships, family issues, or feeling safe in your sexuality and desires, it is likely this area is compromised both energetically and physically. Guilt is a common emotion that begins to clog the energy pathways of this area. Repressed emotions and toxic thought patterns can interfere with the healthy functioning of the system. Symptoms such as constipation, infertility, back pain, sciatica, menstrual issues and other dysfunctions can occur. In order to have healthy and satisfying lives, we must learn how to safely free our energy and connect to our deeper selves.

This workshop offers:
* A 20 Minute Qi Gong sequence led by Erin Kumpf to help ground and stability the mind and body
* Sacral Chakra facts so you can understand how to balance and heal
* Sacral Chakra Readings to determine if you are imbalanced or blocked
* A powerful 15 minute meditation to connect to your divine Goddess self
* Practical exercises to free the Sacral Energy & reignite your passions
* Emotional Workouts to practice awakening the passion within you
* Basic Sacral Chakra balancing tools: foods, colors, crystals, oil

Leah will have Modern Sage product and her book, The Fearless Path, for sale to complement the work. Credit card, cash or venmo accepted. Continue reading

Fresca Gourmet Signs 5,000 Square Foot Lease in Jersey City’s Soho West Neighborhood

300 Coles StreetA gourmet community market and deli will be the next retailer to add its name to the vibrant mix of neighborhood-centric shops, services, restaurants and conveniences in Jersey City’s SoHo West (south of Hoboken, west of New York City) Community.

Fresca Gourmet has signed a lease to occupy 5,000 square-feet of ground floor retail space at 300 Coles Street within the new and emerging community on Jersey City’s Hoboken border.  The popular market offers hot food, deli sandwiches, wraps, salads, prepared meals, and a host of everyday groceries.

Scheduled to open in fall, 2018, Fresca Gourmet will join a list of prominent retailers already open and available to residents of the SoHo West Community, including an 8 Springs Studio, a Pilates and Yoga studio; Viaquenti Academy, a bilingual pre-school; Brewshot, a coffee shop/bar and restaurant, Cycle Mix, a spin cycle establishment, and Art House Productions, a non-profit arts facility that includes a 99-seat black box theatre.

The SoHo West store will be the second Jersey City location for Fresca Gourmet, following in the footsteps of its grocery and deli at 115 Town Square Place in the downtown Newport neighborhood. As one of the fastest growing new development communities in Hudson County, SoHo West presented the owners of Fresca Gourmet with a prime opportunity to expand its business to an up-and-coming neighborhood of luxury homes and services that’s in close proximity to its original location.

The brainchild of developer Manhattan Building Company, SoHo West is a vibrant new neighborhood of oversized residences in highly-amenitized, mixed-use buildings on the border of Jersey City and Hoboken.    Its current offering, Soho Lofts, is the third residential building to be introduced in the community.  More than 75% of the 377 rental units at Soho Lofts have been leased since its late fall launch.

The Keys to Making a Gallery Wall Look Timeless (Not Trendy)

2018-05-09_10-43-45

Gallery walls have been going strong for a while now in home design. That’s probably because they’re the perfect solution for filling up blank wall space—until, well, they’re not. If we are being honest, gallery walls are actually pretty difficult to pull off. Sure, it’s your home and ultimately anything goes. But haven’t we all seen a gallery wall or two that’s awkward, either in terms of the spacing or placement of pieces, frame selection, or heck, even the amount (and style) of items? A gallery wall should really always be a work in progress—something that continues to grow until it reaches the state of being potentially wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor salon style for maximum impact. A small cluster of random artwork on a wall feels too try-hard, right? But I guess you’ve got to start somewhere and acquire works that mean something to you over time. So as you go about that process, let’s take a look at some fully “mature” salon walls that get it right and figure out why. That way, you’ll have some guidance and inspo for your own project. Keep Reading on ApartmentTherapy.com >>>

Roosevelt Dime & Abbie Gardner in Jersey City. NJ

28576031_1559158777455410_1943101576953571267_n

Friday, May 18th 2018 at 39 Erie Street at 2nd St in Jersey City as Cathedral Arts Live! presents Abbie Gardner and Roosevelt Dime

Abbie Gardner, the fiery Dobro player with an infectious smile has been touring with Americana darlings Red Molly for the past eleven years. After gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, the band decided to take an indefinite hiatus in 2015, so Abbie is striking out on her own! No stranger to solo performing, she has three CDs to draw from, each with award-winning songs. Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. She channels Lucinda and Bonnie, but remains pure Abbie. She has been recognized as an award-winning songwriter, as well, with such accolades as; 2008 Lennon Award Winner (folk) for The Mind of a Soldier and 2008 American Songwriter Magazine Grand Prize Lyric Winner for Id Rather Be. Her song Honey on My Grave was also published in Sing Out! Magazine in 2008.

Roosevelt Dime: Seamlessly combining the feel-good groove of classic Rhythm and Blues with acoustic Americana instrumentation, Roosevelt Dime has crafted an infectious style and sound truly their own. Eben Pariser fronts the band with searingly soulful vocals, belted and whispered with a passion and panache straight from the juke joints. Andrew Green’s innovative piano-inspired banjo style, equal parts boogie woogie and bluegrass, lock in with the New Orleans clave rhythms of Tony Montalbano’s drums and Craig Akin’s syncopated upright bass. The swampy chords and swinging blues lines of Pariser’s semi-hollow electric guitar thicken the sound further still. By following the strains of Americana back to its roots, they not only combine aspects of different genres, but challenge the notion of these differences at their core. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the band started in the age old New Orleans street busking tradition, only it was the bustling avenues of the Big Apple rather than the Big Easy that first nurtured their sound. All walks of life were drawn to the undeniable positivity and crowd-sourced spontaneity at these revelries, and this literal grassroots community-building stuck with the band as they took their joyous beat from the city’s parks and subways to seek that same heartfelt connection with audiences worldwide. Armed with original songs of hope, love, and conviction that sound birthed from the cradle of American music yet still crucially relevant to the times in which we live, their performances are a perpetual crowd pleaser (NY Times) in any setting.

Tickets – $15 in advance & $20 at the door.
