With the use of 10 quartz singing bowls, this vibrational therapy tunes the energetic body to optimal balance, helping to remove blockages in the body’s energy channels, as well as opening the main energy centers (chakras) and promote deep relaxation. Each bowl is attuned to a vibration that opens a specific chakra and you will be guided through a meditative journey, bringing awareness to each energy center as the bowls are being played.

During the practice you can sit or lay down, get comfy, and allow the vibration of the bowls move through you, as your body and mind to enter a deep meditative state. 





 

​​​​Shamanic Journey Meditation


Sunday August 13th
6:00-7:30pm


Next series TBD...stay tuned for details!


Cost: $20


Shamanism represents a universal conceptual framework found among indigenous tribal humans.   It includes the belief that the natural world has two aspects: ordinary everyday awareness, formed by our habitual behaviors, patterns of belief, social norms, and cultural conditioning, and a second non-ordinary awareness accessed through altered states, or ecstatic trance, induced by shamanic practices such as repetitive drumming. The act of entering an ecstatic trance state is called the soul flight or shamanic journey, and it allows the journeyer to view life and life's problems from a detached, spiritual perspective, not easily achieved in a state of ordinary consciousness.

Join us on this shamanic journey as you connect and communicate with your inner or spirit self to retrieve information on different aspects of your life.  Your inner self is in constant communication with all aspects of your environment, seen and unseen. We will open sacred space together, call in the 4 directions, set an intention, journey to find your power animal, and then journey to the lower world for answers to your questions.

Cost: $20

Restorative Yoga is considered the “antidote to stress.” A way to truly melt away the tension in your shoulders, back, and hips built up by chronic stress and general tensions created as we move throughout day.  

You will be lead through a sequence of postures designed to move your spine in all directions, while every curve of the body is completely supported by props, and enjoyed for 5-20 minutes.  As your body is being opened by the position of the pose, a Thai yoga-style assist of gentle pressure and palming of the energetic pathways will enhance the release by creating more space and guiding the body into a deeper state of release.  
Please wear comfortable clothes.

This class is great for ALL LEVELS.
