Posted Jul 16, 2017 Connect with the energy of our powerful community! Each month the class will start with chanting, then incorporate a different deep practice, including gong-bath, satsang, eye-contact practices, and gentle chakra-based guided movements. "Mantras are not small things, mantras have power. They are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy having structure, power, and a definite predictable effect on the chakras and the human psyche." ~ Yogi Bhajan Open to all. Babies and children are particularly welcome. No yoga, chanting or meditation experience is necessary. All ability levels welcome. No movement is ever required. Gift-based event. Donations welcomed to help cover the expense of hosting the event.
Posted Jul 16, 2017 Join Chiara and Kerem the week after the great Eclipse for a recalibration of our nervous system and to balance our subtle body and chakras through a deep restorative practice with live soundscapes… The slower pace and deep breathing that you get in restorative yoga triggers the parasympathetic nervous system setting the tone for a relaxing experience for the mind and body, all the way down to a cellular level. This practice often leads to a transcendent experience of oneness with the universal levels of consciousness. Each pose and each breath serves to lead you further up the ladder of expanded awareness. As the practice expands you are carried from the waking state of consciousness into the silent space between your thoughts, the space from where you are able to glimpse the soul and awaken the Divinity within and in return the ability to arrive at a greater sense of presence and light... In this session you will experience a complete renewal and a realigning of the subtle body with long held and deeply nurturing poses, you will be taken through a guided visualization through the chakra system accompanied by Kerem Brules live soundscapes… Kerem Brulé is a sacred sound musician from San Diego creating live layered soundscapes to support transformation, relaxation and peace. She is also the owner of Beautiful Sounds Shop offering intuitive melodic instruments that are easy to learn and play: www.beautifulsounds.shop. More Info: www.kerembrule.com. Chiara's teaching style is intuitive and from her heart, reminding us of the interconnectedness of all of life. The practice is a loving prayer, a ritual to dive deeper into the body and awaken inner wisdom, helping people connect to their own inner knowing, remembering their Souls journey, connecting their spirits through a peaceful, mindful and sometimes challenging practice, offering space for deep transformation and healing... She currently teaches Restorative, Hatha, Yin, Prenatal, and Vinyasa. Her love of beauty and everything sacred led her to study Feng Shui and Vastu… she also continues her studies in shamanism, energy healing, metaphysics, and Ayurveda. Her passion is also in leading ceremonies, offering Breath work, Light work, space clearing, FengShui, Vastu, creating sacred space and altars, blessing ways, and guided meditation… she is an intuitive guide and mentor, sound healer and above all Mother.

Posted Jul 16, 2017 The Taoist concept of Yin and Yang describe the two qualities of energies present in everything, yin qualities are more internal, passive, cooling and magnetic while yang are more external, dynamic and warming. Begin with a deeply nurturing, inward meditative journey with toning and crystal bowls and move into a more tribal and expressive heated flow with live drumming and didgeridoo, then merge these two energies and create balance and harmony with a deep and long savasana with the sounds of the whales… Join us for this deeply transformative journey… Sam David was born in Hawaii and has traveled the world sharing the activating and healing power of sound, for over 20 years. Raised part of his life with the Chumash Native Americans of central California, Sam learnt their sacred practices and drumming. The didgeridoo and voice has been his original passion and has led him on a journey of healing and learning about the powerful effects sound has on people. One of his mentors is Tom Kenyon. Most of Sam's abilities were intuitively learned from letting go and allowing the sound to channel through him. This activated his gift of channeling sounds from many cultures like Tuvin throat singing, overtones, Tibetan monks, Native Americans, and whales of deep. His deep awareness and humble ways show through his gentle but powerful transmissions. Sam uses an array of sacred healing instruments tuned to healing frequencies. These instruments include didgeridoo, Tibetan and crystal bowls, Native medicine drum and the phenomenal new crystal singing pyramids. His Sound Journeys allow you to go deep into relaxed states where you might see visions and release whatever stress your body is holding onto. He will channel and see what sounds need to be created for the release of pain and energies that don't serve you. He will take you deep into another world and bring you out feeling refreshed, more embodied and connected to your soul.

Posted Jul 13, 2017 This Saturday journey deep within your heart to connect to your Higher Self. What is your Higher Self? This is the part of you that knows the answers to your questions, who is aligned with your Soul Purpose, and who works on your behalf to keep you moving forward on your Life Path. Unfortunately, through the course of human life we get disconnected from this wise part of us. This is a natural result of tension that builds up through life experiences and maladaptive programming. Without awareness and activation of this Higher Self part of us, it lies dormant just waiting to unleash it's potential. Luckily, there are many tools that can help us remember who we truly are and what our potential is (hint: it's utterly unbounded and expansive!). Yoga Nidra and Binaural Beats combined is an epic pathway to your deepest self. Saturday's journey will be a fun and gentle journey to help you reconnect with your True Essence. Save $10 off the at the door ticket price by preregistering in advance.
