December 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Join us Sunday, December 2nd from 4:00-5:15 p.m. for a special 75-minute live music/yoga event.
The Lectio Divina way of devotion and prayer can be revealing, healing and transforming. It can deepen our self-understanding as well as our relationship with Jesus. It is beneficial when done alone, but also creates amazing bonds and devotion when done in a group setting.
Join Bonnie Meyer with very special guest Heidi Beran as we submerse ourselves in the Praying of the Psalms. Set your intention for the holiday season with this all-level, beginner friendly class. We will offer restorative postures, scripture readings and the sweet sounds of live harp music.
Beginner/prenatal friendly. Mats provided.

The harp first intrigued Heidi at age seven, while seeing it played at a wedding reception. This fascination began several months of begging and waiting before her parent’s knew she was truly interested in playing the harp, and they were willing to make the commitment to begin this endeavor.
After beginning lessons six months later, the harp has offered Heidi many opportunities. Her primary teachers have included Mary Bircher with the Omaha Symphony Orchestra and Kathleen Wychulis with Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra. For portions of three different summers during high school, she was given the privilege to study with world-renown teacher Alice Chalifoux at the Salzedo Harp Colony in Camden, Maine. In 1999, she released the “Reflections of Christmas” solo recording.
Spring of 2005 Heidi completed her Bachelor of Arts in Harp Performance at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Over the years, Heidi has had many performance opportunities including: UNL Symphony Orchestra, Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra, Hastings Symphony Orchestra, Lincoln’s New Music Agency, the Brown Palace Hotel (Denver), and numerous other special events, weddings and receptions. She is currently a member of Duo Adanté, a flute/harp duo with Betsy Bobenhouse, she is Vice-President of the Great Plains Chapter of the American Harp Society, and has been teaching harp students for over fifteen years.
Heidi resides in Lincoln, Nebraska with her husband Jan Michael Beran and two young boys Jackson and Cohen. She continues to freelance and teach.
