Sound Healing Immersion
June 11th 7-9pm
This transformative experience of sound and vibration may accelerate your inner journey of healing and allow the body to return to a more balanced and harmonized state.
Time is suspended as you enter a world of vibration, sensation and experience. Physical injuries may be healed and old emotional traumas released. Great insights can be accessed. You feel connected to your true self on a deep level.
Sound waves affect the human nervous system and decrease blood pressure, reducing anxiety and enhancing mood states.
Nicola Tesla said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
As the sounds wash over you, the brain state changes and the body will then begin its own healing process. The mind may become still, quiet and empty, or you may go on an inward journey of visualization.
A sound immersion is an experience that is unique to each person.
Set your intention to let go of stress and anxiety and bring your body to a place of relaxation. You may become clearer on an issue that has been troubling you as you allow the sound waves and vibrations to clear and refresh your body and mind.
Gongs, bowls, and other instruments are situated in a way to allow the sounds and vibrations of the instruments to wash over the people attending. Most people lie down on a mat and a pillow during a sound immersion and they cover themselves with a blanket or something warm. Others may choose to sit on a meditation cushion on the floor or on a chair with something warm around them. The room is often darkened or uses soft lighting during the sound bath. Most of the instruments are played from one place and occasionally they are brought around the room and sometimes played over your body. A safe space is created to allow each individual to experience the deep relaxation and healing that is promoted during the sound bath. $40/person
New Moon Ecstatic Dance Free Flowing Movement
Welcoming in the Light
June 18th 11am-2pm
In nature, the Summer Solstice is a time of expansion and promised abundance. It is an extroverted and exuberant time. Our soul and heart wish to follow nature’s lead and look outside, towards peak experiences of fullness, hope, and growth.
The Summer Solstice is a time to reflect on your personal growth and the meaning of the season of light and growth. This is the moment of our year when there is the most light available to us. In terms of consciousness, it is when we are the most present to ourselves and who we know ourselves to be — the Sun represents the light of all life and consciousness. Seeds are planted in the Earth as well as the seeds of our souls. It’s a time of renewal and abundance, a time of love and expansion, as the summer sun unfolds the leaves on the trees, so do our souls open to receive the light of source to illuminate that which is within each of us.
The Summer Solstice is the perfect time to explore the world of ecstatic dance. Ecstatic dance is an inner/outer journey, an authentic moving meditation where presence and ecstasy can be experienced. It creates a direct body-mind-spirit connection, allowing our body and inner guide to be our own teachers. It’s about being fully present, transparent and real with oneself and others, discovering our own true dance, using this movement and energetic experience to release stuck patterns in our bodies, emotions and mind and being able to move beyond separation and experience true union.
Ecstatic dance is a spiritual practice. A safe space to explore healing through divine communion, individually and within community, without the iterations of the mind while talking and drinking, common in the nightclub scene. At ecstatic dance you have no one to impress, our attention is focused in ourselves not in others so you can be utterly yourself, getting down, letting loose, allowing your emotions, dreams and prayers to dance themselves, freeing your mind and body while connecting with yourself, others and spirit in a safe and healthy way.
Ecstatic dance empowers people of all shapes, ages, sizes and backgrounds to freely express themselves; the liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance and the fearlessness with which others move gives permission and courage to dance without inhibition. Everyone is welcomed.
At this time, in the Northern Hemisphere, our star basks in its fullness. It speaks to us of abundance and the glory of fulfillment, inviting us to celebrate spiritual and tangible attainments and remember our wholeness. During our circle we will also honour the new moon through setting intentions for the next cycle in our lives while we release that which no longer serves us. $40/person
