The Beautiful Science of Silence

Save the Date! Saturday, June 21st, 2014


Are you frustrated by too much mind pounding and heart chattering?

Are you surrounded by cars screaming, animals talking, bosses hissing and children barking?

Is your world a little crazy with noise?

Well then… Jacqueline Valdez cordially invites you to a mini spa day for your heart and mind. We will indulge in slices of decadent silence topped with cooling waves of peace. We’ll dip our hearts in refreshing moments of renewal. We’ll slough off the old memories and scrub your intuition sparkling clean. You’ll even take home a goodie bag filled with techniques to continue your spa experience upon re-entry to the world of noise. Kindly join us for a couple of hours of sweet company, quiet healing moments and practical methods to continue your experience in the comfort of your own world. You know you want it. Come and celebrate the silence of your heart this summer.

Winter Solstice Celebration








Please join Jacqueline Valdez for a workshop on the art of becoming a peacemaker at the Pacific Ashtanga Yoga Center in Dana Point on Saturday December 21, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

We can learn to be peacemakers by first making peace with ourself. This means accepting our past as part of who we are. Being mindful that painful memories are part of our human heart, as well as our joyful memories. We can create a strong mind and a loving heart by living peacefully with our self and with others. Peacemakers are those who are committed to practicing love.

2014 could be the year that you choose to make a difference. This winter solstice we’re joining as friends to initiate a year of committing to be peacemakers. We look forward to you being part of our workshop celebrating the peacemakers.

Diana Christinson, owner of Pacific Ashtanga Yoga Center, will complete our day together by leading us in a beautiful Puja (ceremonial ritual) to help guide us in becoming peacemakers.
