Nicole Alcaro a Miami native. She is drawn to create in various forms. She started sewing at 16, learned lamp working at 20, worked as a prop assist, set decorator, prop maker and is a bit of a "Jane of all trades". Nicole became aware about recycling/upcycling plastics and glass. "I’m always looking for ways to reduce, reuse and recycle". She enjoys sharing how to create items from plastic and glass and teaching skills to others. One of her many goals is to have a plastic shredder, injection machine, compression machine and extrusion machine – "all of these would be tools to help break down all types of plastic and use them to make useful objects".

Feeling Divine Energy that You Are

Each and every one of us is made up of divine energy. Divine energy is the energy that makes up all life, the earth is made up of divine energy, our bodies, our soul, and when we tune in to this - that we are, we tune into the energy that heals. I am here to help inform others on how to tune into the divine energy that they are; without any effort, simply with the art of allowing.

Scheduled by the Love X TalksLemuria

I am that I am. I choose to be called Lemuria, and I have always had a natural awareness of, what some people call reiki, I see it as divine energy that I actually am. I am able to feel energy with any part of my body, but I use my hands as direct points of giving and receiving energy. I am able to pinpoint origins of pain, clear that point, and pour divine healing energy into it. I have had many different short term teachers in the past, but my greatest teacher is my own intuition and my connection to spirit.

Bring themselves! Where clothes that are comfortable. Just be authentic as you are. 🙂

Giving and Receiving

I am experienced in traveling with almost no money at all times. I have realized and found out that this world exists as a system of giving and receiving; every action we make creates a response no matter what. When we unconditionally and unselfishly give what we have we open ourselves up to receive what we need, when we unconditionally and unselfishly receive from people, the earth, or other forces, we open ourselves up to give more, this cycle is infinite.

Scheduled by the Love X TalksLemuria

I am that I am. I choose the name Lemuria because I remember existing during the time of Lemuria, which was one of the first civilizations on the planet. I choose to hold this name because every time I hear the world it reminds me of living in perfect harmony and purity with the animals, the earth, the plants, one another, and all. I know perfect harmony can exist on this planet at anytime, and it is up to the people to decide to create that into reality. Every action I make I do my best to create this world to be as Lemuria was, only it is bran new. I am only one so I can only do so much, but I know if I play my part and do the best I can it is enough. 🙂
My husband and I travel around the country together and apart. When we, or just me,travel money is always coming and going. I have a experienced multiple times where there has been no money, but a deep knowing of abundance! In this knowing of true abundance that comes from within I am always able to give what I have no matter what. When I choose to give what I have, even if I have nothing at the time, no money, no things, just the clothes on my back and the love emanating from without my heart, I am always provided for...always. What I choose to give is kindness to anyone.

Students may come with an open mind and an open heart. May they be dressed comfortably, and possible a pen and notebook and they enjoy writing information down. Truly may they just come as themselves 🙂

Intuitive Movemeant

Movement is the universal language and allows people to fully express themselves freely. Movement teaches us that art comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, and forms. In this workshop we will close our eyes and tune into our bodies and flow, meditate, dance! The workshop will begin with a meditation where we tune inwards and open the space for the body to receive the movement it truly needs/wants. We will then move through a yoga flow giving the opportunity to move freely in any poses that feels good in the body. The workshop ends with an intuitive dance where eyes are closed and I hold space for everyone to move however they wish in an open, judgement free space. Movement is my creative expression and it is my passion to be able to share this with everyone and hold space for for someone to tune in, tune out, let go, and M O V E.

This is such a beautiful workshop being able to watch people who aren't comfortable in their bodies-be completely vulnerable by opening up and moving into a space of confidence and self love. Movement inspires me more than anything, including dance, yoga, and flow arts. I love moving my body in nature, especially at the beach or surrounded by a canopy of trees deep in the woods. I also am deeply inspired by the Earth and all the herbs and plant medicine she provides.

LOVE THY OHM

I want to teach a 75 min Vinyasa class with some Yin at the end. In my yoga flow, we will connect to the divine through our hearts and allow our physical practice to awaken and transfer energy throughout the body.

Preferably saturday morning around 10 to 12. or anytime that works.Andre

I am originally from Brazil. I have been teaching yoga for little over a year now and I would never imagine It would be something I make a career of. Teaching yoga aligns with my goal in life to spread love and be love. After some time teaching I came to the realization I am here to help other heals and connect to the divine within.
