Relax, Balance, Restore
Yoga Nidra with Reiki & Crystal Singing Bowls
Enter deep relaxation as you are guided through Yoga Nidra “Conscious Sleep”. Simply lay comfortably on your back or seated, and you will be guided through varying breathing, body awareness and relaxation techniques to progressively enter a deeply relaxed awareness. In this meditative state, it is easy to disengage from negative mental talk and detach from unconscious habit patterns that may be limiting your life.
While in this relaxed state you may choose to receive Reiki, an ancient energetic healing technique used to balance your energy, opening any emotional or spiritual energetic blocks. Seal the experience and wash away that which no longer serves you through the beautiful healing sounds of crystal singing bowls to restore your body, mind and spirit bringing a renewed sense of self. There will be time to share heartfelt insights and experiences to close the experience.
Word of the Year
Create YOUR Own Vision Board
Word of the Year: Create YOUR Vision Board
Ignite your creativity and embrace more clarity and focus in 2018 with A Word of the Year Vision Board!
What is a Word of the Year?
An individual process to narrow your focus for the year to one word easy to integrate into your life. Your word can be an intention, aspiration, desire, dream, wish, or feeling that embraces your future self. This process will include aligning, opening, and balancing your energy centers with a guided meditation and breathing exercises to center yourself. We will continue with journaling prompts and self exploration activities to discover YOUR Word of The Year.
What is a Vision Board?
An opportunity to visually represent YOUR word of the year using a collage of images taken from magazines (or other paper-based media) or drawn on a poster board to represent the outcome or end-result of your Word of the Year. The intention of this activity is to unleash your creativity, bring focus to your intention and inspire you to place it somewhere you see often.
Yoga Nidra Meditation
Enter the Zero Stress Zone
Experience an effortless practice of healing, restoration, and rejuvenation through the practice of Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra can be defined as “Conscious Sleep.” There are no difficult poses, and you cannot do it wrong. Simply lay comfortably on your back or sitting in a chair, and you will be guided through varying breathing, body awareness, and relaxation techniques to progressively enter into a deep relaxed awareness. In this meditative state, it is easy to disengage from negative mental talk and detach from unconscious habitual patterns that may be limiting your life.
In this state the power of the body to heal itself is magnified. 40 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to about 3.5 hours of deep, restorative sleep. This systemic process provide deep relaxation and stress relief on physical, mental, and emotional levels. In this deepened state you can insert positive affirmations to replace habitual thought patterns and so much more. Each Yoga Nidra session has a similar format, but offers different techniques and combinations to bring variety.
“Yoga Nidra works at three primary levels: Spiritual (Realize), Psychological/Behavioral (Integrate, Disengage and Rewrite unhelpful thoughts and behaviors), and Physical (restoration of physical health and wellbeing).” -Amrit Yoga Institute
World Wide Womb Blessing Gathering
What is one main element that makes a woman a woman - her womb! The Womb Blessing is an opportunity to honor and celebrate the sacred feminine and all the energy that that encompasses. Five times a year thousands of women around the World come together to do something extraordinary – to share love, light and healing, and to awaken the Sacred Feminine within themselves and within the World. The Blessing is available to all women whether they currently have a womb or not, have a cycle or not. The Divine Feminine energy is for all of us. (It is important that young girls have had their first Moontime to receive the energy.)
Our intention for this event is to hold space for women to come together in community and share and support one another in this sacred healing. We will begin by sharing in the pre-ceremony guided meditations together followed by the distance energy healing (Womb Blessing) to come through from Miranda Gray. Singing Bowl Sound Healing will be offered to the group following the Womb Blessing. There is opportunity to share your experience, insight, etc afterwards. Tea will be provided.
