“We’ve been given eyes to see, but the question becomes, do we let our hearts be broken by that reality, and then, do we act?”
“The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution that has to start with each one of us.”
– Dorothy Day
August at Trillium
In two weeks, Monday, August 17, most Trillium classes will shift to the Zoom platform. Students will pre-register and pre-pay for each class on the Trillium website. Pre-registration must be at least 30 minutes before the start of class. Current class cards will be honored. We will have more details next week. Once class cards have been used, students will need to pay on line.
Saturday morning Community Yoga by donation will return soon. Stay tuned.
We are grateful to all who have sent donations as a thank you for the free classes offered by our teachers. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we welcome your donations. If you are able, please consider sending a Community Yoga, $5 – $10, donation per class. You may either send a check to Trillium Wellness Center, 42 1/2 Elm Street, Potsdam, NY, or use your credit/debit card at our web store.
In accordance with the north country’s Phase 3 reopening status, some Healing Arts practitioners are preparing to return to providing individual services at Trillium.
In compliance with CDC and NYS health and safety guidelines for practitioners and clients, we have instituted cleaning, sanitizing, and social distancing procedures. They will be prominently posted at Trillium.
1. Masks will be worn at all times by practitioners and clients.
2. Practitioners will sanitize after each client: wash hands, change sheets, disinfect treatment tables, chairs, supplies for treatment, and door handles.
3. There is no waiting in the building. Clients will park on the street and text practitioners upon arrival. Practitioners will text the clients when they are ready for them to enter the building. Practitioners will meet clients at the building entrance door.
4. Clients are advised to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before and after Healing Arts appointments.

Just For You
While our classes are on hiatus, and most of us are house bound, we plan to post a variety of meditations and yoga classes for you to enjoy. We hope these offerings will keep you connected to your Trillium community and will keep us connected to you. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email me, firstname.lastname@example.org. Namaste, Terry de la Vega
The first is a Yoga Nidra/Sound Bath, recorded at Trillium. Find a quiet time and place, for about a half an hour. You may lie down on the floor, supported with blankets and pillow, or you may sit in a comfortable reclining chair. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy.
Listen to Yoga Nidra Meditation and Sound Bath
On Monday, March 16, the Trillium board took the decision to suspend classes and workshops for the next three weeks. We took this action in order to comply with the current emergency safety measures taken by Gov. Cuomo. Time is of the essence to contain the coronavirus. If closing Trillium can help stop the spread of the virus, we believe it is the right thing to do.
Individuals may continue to seek Healing Arts services remotely, including Reiki and counseling. Individual practitioners are available via email and phone to schedule appointments.
Updates will be posted here and on our FB page. Please check back regularly. OK, everybody, be well, and enjoy this time of nowhere to go, nothing to do.
