    Learn How to Interpret The Tarot


    The Tarot is an ancient system of archetypes, used to enlighten, inform and entertain. Whether used for spiritual reflection, personal growth, or advice with life's daily challenges, the Tarot is a wonderful and unique way to expand your self-knowledge. In this class, we will explore the basics of Tarot, some history of the cards, the meanings and archetypes they invoke, and teach you the basics for reading for yourself and others. Please join us for this exploration into this fascinating psychological and philosophical system!

    LadyDi has been reading the Tarot for over fifteen years in a variety of settings and reads both personally and professionally. She uses the cards in conjunction with meditation, visualizations, affirmations and journaling in order to help gain clarity and insight into her life and the lives of her clients.

    Hips Don't Lie!



    Belly dance is an ancient art that has gotten modern popularity. In this class Athena Nile, an award winning belly dancer, will be teaching the basics of belly dance - from the history of this art form to the newest ways to shimmy, shiver, and vibrate!

    “In the typical class, one can expect a gentle warm up, technique practice, drills, group choreography followed by a cool-down / stretching routine. Of course, laughter and new friends come with taking the class too!” - Athena

    Athena Nile / Athena is a passionate teacher who sees the potential in every student and looks to share every aspect of the dance form she loves so much. She is always looking for new techniques and ways to help students reach the next level! Athena is a founding member of the Hip Art Collective and has been a professional belly dancer for over ten years. You can find more about her at www.athenanile.com.


    In this class, please bring some water, a scarf for your hips and if you have a veil, please bring that.

    Drumming. Sound Healing. Mindfulness. Dear friends,
    Great news! on September 23-24. 2017, Jim Donovan will return to Columbus Space in Columbus to offer a very special rejuvenation retreat called "The Wisdom of Rhythm". This brand new experience is for any who loves the spiritual side drumming and is looking for a profoundly joyful and deep immersive experience.





    Wisdom of Rhythm Retreat with Jim Donovan M.Ed.
    Drumming. Sound Healing. Mindfulness.


    The Wisdom of Rhythm Retreat is for anyone who loves the spiritual side drumming and is looking for a profoundly joyful and deep immersive experience.

    Pricing: $127 by Sept 9, 2017 or $147 thereafter 

    You will take part in an array of enjoyable and beginner friendly musical activities including:
    • Group Drumming & Expressive Music Creation
    • Whole Brain Drumming Improvisation Techniques
    • Sound Healing Techniques
    • Drumming and Meditation
    Experience the camaraderie of a safe, supportive and friendly group of people where you can feel comfortable to just be yourself- without the pressure of being “good” at music.

    "Just attended "The Wisdom of Rhythm" retreat with Jim at Jaqui MacMillan's studio in Westminster, Md., and once again have come away with a plan and desire to be a better me. Jim is all about helping those who attend his workshops and retreats to become "the best version of ourselves" through drumming and rhythm exercises in a totally supportive and non-threatening environment. VERY highly recommended. Thanks again Jim! :-]"-Rick Gruenewald

    The program is composed of three interconnected concepts that will focus on:
    • Developing and practicing creative drumming skills
    • Personal wellness and becoming the next best version of you
    • Renewing and deepening your connection to your inner wisdom

    Learn a balanced array of evidence-based techniques that will help you to:
    • Relieve stress & anxiety
    • Get deep, more restful sleep
    • Gain mental clarity
    • Increase and sustain your energy

    "I just spent my first workshop with Jim. It won't be my last. I didn't have any preconceived ideas about what would be happening. Good thing because I never would have conjured it to be as fabulous as it was! It's not about the drumming so if you have any curiosity but no drumming experience, don't let that keep you away. In practical ways for everyone, at your own choosing, Jim gifted us with an experience---a beginning, a middle, and an amazing end---that enabled us to transcend into our next best version of ourselves. Thank you! "-Jacke Schroeder
