For quite awhile now I have been talking about the other limbs of yoga and how a yoga class can’t really go deeply into them. Nor do many people attending a yoga class want to! So I am starting a new series of classes on Wednesday nights starting September 17th teaching the other limbs (aspects) of yoga. They will run in 6 week increments focusing on specifics of yoga philosophy and practices. The beginning series will be about the first two limbs of yoga and learning the Chant for Healing that with regular practice burns up the seeds of karma. This chant is very powerful and my direct experience of it has been a release from physical pain that had been chronic for me. It is a very practical and beneficial tool that I believe is important to have in your tool box.
Initially these classes were going to be held at Sky High Studio on Monday nights. But feedback from perspective participants suggests Wednesdays are better. Also a trade for space was offered to me instead of paying rent at the awesome and lovely Sky High Studio on the Leighton road. So I have to go with barter over paying. But do check out this very cool place.
Yoga is a life system that is used to master one’s environment both internally and externally. As Carl Jung said, what one doesn’t address inside manifests as an external event. I will be teaching the techniques to learn to master the internal environment and then eventually manifesting in the external environment.
Contemplate your knowledge of what you know about me. I am a happy, lively, emotionally intelligent human being. I live a very good life. I would state that I have achieved heaven on earth. If that is something you could use a little of these classes are for you. Or conversely if you know someone who you think might benefit please forward them this information.
I will be releasing the address for the place soon. But to reserve a spot in the class pre-payment is required. Please send a check or if you see me cash is fine. Send payment to Laura Hamilton 436 Riverside Dr., Augusta, ME 04330 for $72. Paypal is also an option to firstname.lastname@example.org The dates of the first series are 9/17, 24, 10/1, 15, 22 & 29 from 6-7:30pm
Another item to consider my business partner Rose Swan and I will be facilitating a Yoga Hiking Adventure into the Gulf Hagas. Hopefully tomorrow the details of that will be out along with registration. So expect another info blast this week. I can tell you the dates will be October 10-12.
People seem to be getting confused regarding my work. So I want to offer a little clarity here. I am a self employed entrepreneur. I do many different things for a living. As I launched a new training company this year it did not mean I stopped being an astrologer. Nor does it mean I am not seeing clients privately for astro-counseling weekly. As for the gluten free baking I have decided I am only baking for select clients instead of an open call for weekly orders. So to sum it up I am a trainer with a business partner who owns Integrated Systems Consulting. This is a consulting company that specializes in integrating traditional organizational development and mindfulness. We have trained small businesses, church groups, families, individuals and couples. We offer in house training or retreats. I am an astrologer who sees people weekly, bi-weekly, bi-annually and annually for astrological counseling. Many of my clients and astrology reading happen via Skype with people from all over the country and a few international. The astrology that I practice is inclusive with my work as a yoga teacher. People come to see me to develop a life system that works to manage all aspects of their lives physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I am also a gluten free baker who loves the art of food and I have a little farm where I sell eggs and occasionally free range chickens and pork!
I hope that clears things up. Most people have one job, I have many. So I see where the confusion has moved in.
If you have any questions please email Hamilton.email@example.com and book an astrology reading, take a yoga class or have a training!

I haven’t had time to write although I did post pictures of the medallion that appeared next to my bed. I have had to explain myself numerous times so here is the story ;)
Each morning I wake up go down stairs to make a cup of tea and return to bed. On this morning I did just that. As I returned to my bedside I lifted my coaster and there were two coasters stuck together. Odd, but no big deal. As the coasters came apart this medallion fell to the floor. I picked it up and the o-ring disintegrated and fell off. It was covered in grime. I had never seen this thing before. I took it into the bathroom and scrubbed it a bit and could see it was an angel medal. Unbelievable. I showed it to my family. My husband thought I was mistaken and had lost it at some point. But a woman knows what jewelry she owns and I know I have never owned this, as does he really. After 25 years he’s pretty familiar with what I wear.
Yesterday I took it to the jeweler and had it cleaned and an o-ring put on it. I looked at it under a magnifying glass and saw it read “Archangel Raphael Pray for us” So there it is friends.
I haven’t put to much thought into it because I am use to the Angels talking to me. Lets face it once you get use to voices talking to you it isn’t a big jump to materialization of objects.
I have said before that the Angel practices are some of the most powerful I have ever experienced. I have been a dedicated Catholic and utilized that system, I have spent time with Buddhists and of course taught yoga for ten years and practiced longer. But when I was directed to working with angel meditations I experienced fast and lasting change. In putting this medal around my neck I have come home to myself. I am dedicated and clear.
What has this newest ”miracle” brought me? Somehow it affirms me as a healer. Archangel Raphael is the healing angel. I am a healer. I have never considered myself that. It has never been a desire or a goal. Of course I never wanted to be a yoga teacher either. It just kind of happened. And I had dream telling me to pursue both the Meyers-Briggs and astrology. Oh, no, a voice told me to pursue MBTI training in the middle of my Mother’s living room on a trip to Florida once :) All in all this latest experience has brought me home to myself more firmly as a spiritual being incarnate to be of service to others. Pretty much the same as yesterday and the day before but with a little shot of validation :)
The Sun and Mercury are in the tenth house of career today in the sign of Gemini. Gemini rules communication. Mercury is still retrograde so cleaning things up and laying plans is the thing to be doing in relation to your career/vocation. Don’t negotiate or set new contracts until after Mercury turns direct on July 2nd, but certainly set goals and take time to really dream big. Partaking in professional development is also an excellent endeavor.
To that end ~I have decided to not bake this summer. The Gluten Free Baker is on hiatus. I have a lot of other projects that need to be focused on. I also require a solid month to process my gardens and don’t want to be stressed about not having time.
One of my projects is developing a new yoga series that I will be teaching at Maine Integrative Healthcare in Manchester. I have decided to release Tuesday night yoga class at the Senator to the very capable hands of Randy so I can shift focus to this program.
This will be very different from the yoga classes at the Senator. (I will still be teaching there Thurs nights & Tues/Thurs/Sat mornings) The new classes will be six week series with specific focus. I am torn between starting with a chanting series or an anxiety management series. Maybe you all can weigh in with your votes on that? :) My driving passion with this work is to help people learn to master their internal environments so they can succeed externally. I really want to reach teens and another population, those who have survived sexual assault as well as the general population. My oath as a yoga teacher is to relieve suffering and that is the aim of this work as well as the corporate work.
So all this is in the making. I of course can’t make any agreements about the space in Manchester until after July 2nd :) But I will keep you posted. My instincts tell me we will be starting the last week of July.
Meanwhile my training partner Rose & I are picking up more Corporate trainings for Integrated Systems. Here the focus is the same. Helping groups learn to function at their best most creative capacity by teaching group process, Myers-Briggs and Yoga all in one synergistic training company. We LOVE this work too.
Oh and then of course there are the astrology reading and my art studio which I have made an absolute commitment to. I am determined to paint or sculpt at least 30 minutes every day. I am also going to the live drawing class at the Harlow Sunday nights 7pm come hell or high water :) In case anyone else wants to come :)
Then there are friends and family to see and love. So many lovely things to be doing! I am a very lucky woman. I will keep you all up to date as things move along.
