Rated G Movies

Black Beauty (1995)
A wondrous new version of Anna Sewell's classic about a remarkable horse and the various owners whose lives he transforms. Year: 1994 Director: Caroline Thompson Starring: Sean Bean, David Thewlis, Jim Carter
Rating: G
Genre: Action & Adventure, Drama, Kids & Family
Directed By: Caroline Thompson
Written By: Caroline Thompson
Runtime: 87 minutes




Spirit – Stallion of the Cimarron
Screenwriter John Fusco returns to the Western themes of his previous films Young Guns and Thunderheart with this animated children's adventure from Dreamworks. Matt Damon supplies the voice of Spirit, a wild Mustang stallion living free in the Old West of the late 19th century, where he's captured by human horse traders and sold to a cavalry regiment at a frontier outpost. There, a cruel colonel (voice of James Cromwell) nearly succeeds in breaking the willful horse, but not quite. Spirit escapes in the company of another captive, Little Creek (voice of Daniel Studi), a Native American youth that tries to possess the magnificent animal by more humane means, but Spirit refuses to bend to human will even when he makes the acquaintance of Little Creek's beautiful and fiercely loyal mare, Rain. After he saves Little Creek's life in an Army raid, Spirit believes that the gravely injured Rain has perished after a tumble over a waterfall. Despondent, the horse is captured again by humans, enslaved this time for work in a pack team on the transcontinental railroad. Undaunted by the tragedies that befall him, Spirit manages to escape for a reunion with Little Creek, Rain, and his long-lost brethren. Featuring songs by rock singer Bryan Adams, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron departs from other examples of its genre in that the horse protagonists do not speak or sing; only Spirit's voice is heard as voice-over narration.” https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/spirit_stallion_of_the_cimarron

Brother Bear
Driven by the emotional and joyous rhythms of five great new songs from Academy-Award (R) winner Phil Collins, "Brother Bear" is Disney's exciting new animated holiday adventure. Set against the majestic natural splendor of the Great American Northwest, the film tells the story of a boy named Kenai, whose life takes an unexpected turn when the Great Spirits transform him into a bear - the creature he hates most. Befriended by a bear cub named Koda, Kenai sets out to regain his human form while his brother (who doesn't realize Kenai is now a bear) pursues him on a mission of revenge and family honor. With breathtaking animation, powerful emotion and humor, this film introduces a memorable cast of characters and paints an unforgettable tale of courage, honor and self-discovery.”  https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/brother_bear

But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen - a magical musical instrument - Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.” https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/kubo_and_the_two_strings_2016

Our Open Mic Nights are focused on providing a nurturing, creative and  safe environment for artists to share new concepts or work out new  material. Our focus is on collaboration through inspiration for artists  of different disciples, cultures and genres to share their craft.

Open Mic's are open to  participating artists and guests by invitation only. We keep these  events intimate so that artists can feel free to experiment and explore.  It's about creating a space that is safe to bear the artistic soul.   

Once the scheduled performances are completed for the evening musicians  and dancers are welcome to have an open jam session. We encourage  artists to collaborate as well as to step outside the box and find new  perspectives.

We  set the PM hours of our Open Mic Night to reflect that there will be  some works that may not be suitable for younger artists. It is an 18 and  older event.

image75Mana Keepers Shop Grand Opening
You are invited to Mana Keepers Shop's Grand Opening at In the Flow Studios. We will have some of our most prized pieces on display and will offer some pieces for sale. In the Flow Studios is kindly hosting a FREE MIXER with finger foods and refreshments.  

About Mana Keepers Shop Mana Keepers offers crystals, rocks, books, music, prints, cards, and art-work from local and international nature-loving artists. Nature has the power to rejuvenate, exhilarate, sooth, heal and inspire. It can stir the soul, elicit wonder, calm the mind of stress and ease tension from the body. Many of us in modern society don't have the occasion to enjoy the benefits of nature in our daily environment. Mana Keepers strives to give people everywhere an opportunity to bring a bit of the natural world into their everyday lives. "I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright." ~Henry David Thoreau 

When we loose our connection with Nature’s rhythms and cycles, we become disconnected from our bodies and emotions and get “stuck in our heads”. By engaging in the restorative energies of nature we help bring balance and harmony to our lives. That’s why for centuries artists, philosophers, scientists, healers and lovers have been inspired by Mother Nature?  "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." ~Albert Einstein  

For those of us that live in cities or densely populated suburbs it may be difficult to find a space in nature to meditate in. Many of us don’t have the opportunity of enjoying the benefits of immersing ourselves in nature on a daily basis. As a result our bodies suffer as does our vitality and our creativity.  ​“The earth has music for those who listen.” ~William Shakespeare
   
Even if we can’t move to a new location or drastically transform our lifestyles we can still effect positive change in our current environment by adding aspects of Mother Nature. Living plants, crystals, waterfalls and nature photographs can all help change stressed living spaces into a more harmonious and enriching environment.  "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." ~Aristotle  


We will have a guest list at the door and will be cross-checking names with invitations. Thank you and hope to see you there.

ITFS Workshop and Master Classes Archive

Past ITFS Workshops and Master Classes

Some workshops previously hosted at In the Flow Studios in 2019:


image26Chakra Stones Basic Workshop 
My Chakra Stones Workshop was developed to educate participants about the seven major chakras in the human body as well as to further develop their knowledge and understanding of the chakras' workings in relation to physical health, emotional well-being and consciousness. Participants will also learn about special stones that complement mediation and balance the energy centers of the body. They will learn about the importance of breath and of water in relation to vitality of body and spirit.  

Through my 25 years of training and study in multiple disciplines and arts I have created my signature Chakra Stones Healing and Cleansing set. My set consists of 11 stones and 9 placements. The numbers 11 and 9 are important in helping to create an optimum energetic field for cleansing and detoxifying both the physical body and the energy body. Each stone resonates to a specific vibrational field and interacts with the subtle energies of our chakras and energy system. I will guide practitioners through a simple yet powerful meditation using the stones to release stress and to gently begin bringing the chakra system into balance.   

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that translates as wheel or disc. A chakra is a center of activity that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy. The chakras are like spinning spheres of bioenergetic activity emanating from the major nerve ganglia branching forward from the spinal column. Six of these wheels are located in a column of energy that spans from the base of the spine to the middle of the forehead. The seventh is beyond the physical region above the head. Each chakra in your spinal column is believed to influence or even govern bodily functions near its region of the spine.   

Eastern based medicines, religions, martial arts and philosophies all recognize the existence of electromagnetic fields throughout the human body. For thousands of years Eastern cultures have incorporated their knowledge of the workings of the energy “centers” or Chakras and the energy "rivers" or Meridians in the human body into health, healing, martial and consciousness expansion practices. Some of the practices that have become popular in West are Acupressure, Acupuncture, Reiki, Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, Aikido, and Meditation. (Use this link to connect with "Fee Guided Meditations" - UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center.)  

Water is an essential component for life as we know it. Our bodies are comprised of more than 70% water. Humans can survive only a few days without water yet can survive a month or more without food. Water powers our bodies, from the elasticity of our myofascia (cognitive tissue) to the ability to process thoughts coherently, it literally is our life's blood. The quality of the water we drink will affect the quality of our health and consciousness. Participants will learn how to elevate the vibration of the water they drink and use daily. Use this link for more information on the importance of the quality of the water we drink.   

Participants will receive a 55 page ebook with in-depth information regarding all the topics discussed in the workshop. 



image27Balisong Workshop
Balisong seminar ($35)
The “Balisong” or “Butterfly knife” is a very unique knife that was created in the Philippines.  In this class students will learn everything they need to know about caring for and practicing balisong.. as well as learning about blade awareness and blade safety.  You can bring your own practice/trainer blade, or purchase one from In the flow Studios for $15.  I will be sharing different information and techniques that I have learned with the balisong.  I will also be teaching basic knife defense and basic knife skills. This is a great opportunity for both new AND old weapon users alike.  Come learn about knife and balisong tricks while having fun!

Hope to see you there!

image28Young Adult & College Prep Safety Workshop
 This workshop is designed for young adults ages 16 and older. It’s perfect safety prep for those going off to college and those planning on becoming more independent. Personal Safety and crime prevention are crucial components in successfully learning to be self-reliant.

As our kids grow into adults they become more independent and will find themselves in situations unsupervised by their parents and/or trusted adults. This is a natural and healthy process of growth and maturity. While we want to encourage young adults to become more independent we also want to help them learn how to handle potentially dangerous situations. We will share strategies on crime prevention and ways to effectively troubleshoot unforeseen challenges. It’s important for young adults to be aware of their surroundings and know that there are people they will encounter that don’t always have good intentions.

We will have expert guest speakers in multiple areas of personal safety and crime prevention. We will offer hands-on simple and effective self-defense techniques as well as situational examples and responses. Our workbook and ebook give our students and their parents an opportunity to review topics and continue to practice at home/school.

Some of the topics we will cover:
•Social Media & Geo Tags
•Hands-on self defense techniques
•Crime Prevention - what to be on the look out for
•Opportunistic Crime Prevention
•Social Situations & potentially unhealthy/dangerous environments
•Preparedness: Emergency and Safety
•Resources in health and safety
•Emotional Challenges and where to turn
•Drugs/Alcohol and their impact on judgement and decision making

Parents are encouraged to participate if students are younger than 18 years of age.

Date: May 25, 2019
Time: 3pm - 6pm

image24Vision Book Workshop
Helping our dreams become our reality...

Our Vision Book Workshop focuses on sharing age old wisdom forgotten by many in our modern age. This workshop is designed to help each participant gain a deeper understanding of the subconscious mind and  it’s (subconscious) effects in our physical reality. Participants will  learn fun, simple and practical applications to work with their  subconscious minds. By using this new understanding participants will  create a personal vision book to use as a tool and a guide in  manifesting their dreams and uncovering their talents.

This  workshop is open to the general public and all are welcomed but we  highly encourage artists, dreamers, entrepreneurs and idealists to  attend. These techniques and lessons are especially helpful to those  that work through inspiration. Participants develop easy and enjoyable  ways to feed their inner muse daily.

For  thousands of years great spiritual cultures understood the importance  of our connection and communication with the subconscious mind. This  knowledge and understanding was passed down through verbal history. Most  of those practices have been forgotten but some have survived. The  ancient Hawaiians used some of these practices to harvest Mana (Divine  Life Force Energy). They used Mana not only to enrich their bodies and  spirits but as a sacred breath to feed their dreams and bring them into  reality. The Australian Aboriginal cultures used Dream Time as a way to  communicate with the heavens. Through understanding the meanings of  their dreams they were able to predict and avoid dangers as well as  bring the dream world into the waking. Tibetan Buddhist monks practice  Lucid Dreaming as a way to understand the subconscious mind in multiple  realms of reality.

In  contemporary society we also have great minds that have taught us the  importance of the subconscious mind in how we live and perceive our  realities. Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Carl Jung spoke of the  subconscious mind’s power to manifest in our daily lives. Albert  Einstein said “The world as we have created it is a process of our  thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking” and “Your  imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” The  imagination is a product of our subconscious. Joseph Campbell is known  for many great things, not the least of which is the philosophy of  "Following Your Bliss". By following your bliss you are reflecting the  unique talents that lie within. 

Our  subconscious is the key to getting in touch with our deepest dreams and  latent talents. This workshop shares easy and effective tools to  re-connect with the inner-child or sub-conscious mind. Through forging a  healthy relationship with the subconscious, participants are able to  co-create their realities and manifest their Divine talents. 

Participants will revive a free Vision Book Workshop ebook. 

Date: Sun. 8/25/19
Time: 2pm - 4pm
Location: In the Flow Studios
11951 Valley View St. 
Garden Grove, CA
Cost: $50

Class size is limited so please register now to ensure your space.

Artist Highlight Keona Nguyen

Keona Nguyen was kind enough to share her talents and cultural pride at our In the Flow Studios Allie Fundraiser. She was one of the first artists to commit to our event. Her sense of community and caring are a beautiful example to us all. The oldest of four she is no stranger to setting a good example and trying to help those younger than herself. Keona has served as an example, inspiration and role model to countless youths through her cultural and martial arts performances as well her community service.



Keona has spent her young life in the pursuit of personal excellence. She’s a well rounded person with a love of humanities, the arts and cultural history. Her moral compass points to her integrity and her actions are a reflection of her content of character. She is always the first to welcome a new performer, teammate, student into the group. She is kind to those more fragile and works to encourage those around her.


Being multi-cultural American, Keona has learned to not only appreciate her ethnic heritage (Vietnamese and Filipino) but also other rich cultures like Hawaiian, Samoan, Tahitian. She dedicated years of study and performing in traditional Polynesian and Filipino dances. She has shared her cultural dances throughout California (from Moro Bay to Los Angels). She danced with Nonosina Polynesia. She has also danced and choreographed for Filipino American Community Club of Monterey Peninsula for many years.


Keona took her interest of her Filipino heritage to another level a few years ago when she began learning the once outlawed Filipino Martial Arts. She is a key student and performer at PaaMano Eskrima and Performing Arts. Keona has represented the legendary warrior princess Princess Urduja of ancient Pangasinan at Filipino festivals, celebrations and events. She is proud to tell the story of her ancestors and the long forgotten s/heroes. The warrior princesses piece has inspired many girls to remember their strength.




PaaMano Eskrima - Filipina Warrior Princess - Peñafrancia Fiesta 2018 Sheroes
This piece is dedicated to the little known pre-colonial warrior princesses of the Philippines.
We honor these brave women or Filipnia sheroes not just because of their courage and leadership but because remembering Filipino pre-colonial history was very important to Jose Rizal. In Jose Rizal’s preface to his annotations of Morga’s “Sucesos de las Islas Filipinas” he writes:
“If the book succeeds to awaken your consciousness of our past, already effaced from your memory, and to rectify what has been falsified and slandered, then I have not worked in vain, and with this as a basis, however small it may be, we shall be able to study the future.”

In honor of Princess Urduja, warrior queen of ancient Pangasinan. Princess Pangian Inchi Jamila of Jolo – known as the best swordswoman in the Philippines and Lela Men Chanei, the princess of Sulu who invaded and conquered Manila in the 15th century.


Athletic completion has been a cornerstone in her life. From an early age her mother and father encouraged her to try new things including sports. She found that she really enjoyed waterpolo, basketball, volleyball and Track & Field with main event in Pole Vault, Sprints (100m, 4x100m) and high jump. Keona uses sports as a way to help her stay physically and mentally fit. She enjoys the challenge presented in team competition and enjoys the camaraderie.

Keona believes in giving back to her community and mentoring others. She's a team player and finds joy in helping others reach their full potential. She was the Cerritos High School football team manager for four years and was honored for her dedication. She was Peer Leader for Unity Through Christ, a confirmation class. Her focus was on mentoring and guiding hopeful students through the confirmation process.


We are grateful to have had such a generous and talented person perform and share at our event! We wish her continued success in all her endeavors and look forward to seeing all the good she will do in the future!
