Donation Class to Benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer!

Join Kaoutar for this special class… All Proceeds collected from this Donation Based Community Class will Benefit the organization known as Living Beyond Breast Cancer!

Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) was founded. To address the needs of the ever-expanding group of women seeking information, LBBC organized two annual conferences and produced a quarterly educational newsletter. Several years later, LBBC introduced the Breast Cancer Helpline (formerly the Survivors’ Helpline), which provides peer support services from volunteers with a personal history of breast cancer. These interactions with LBBC empowered them to make sense of their “new normal” and provided a place to interact with others sharing this experience.

Healing Sound Bath w/ Baba Doc!
May

3:30 PM15:30

Healing Sound Bath w/ Baba Doc!

Sound has been used as a powerful healing mechanism since humans first formed civilizations that promoted a high level of spiritual consciousness.

The first rhythm we feel and sounds we hear come to us while in the stress free womb of our mothers. This experience unifies all humans no matter race, gender, age, or religious belief system.

Sound therapists have the ability to use sound frequencies to interact with the energy frequencies of human bodies. Through these interactions, frequencies, and energy, the human body can be balanced.

Realizing more and more the importance of healing with sound, Baba Doc created the Healing Sound Bath, using a variety of percussion instruments, each with a unique voice and energy to create an experience that promotes relaxation, stress relief, healing, breathing, and balances both hemispheres of the brain.

Join Gabrielle as we continue to bring in the Lunar New Year & honor the coming of spring shifts in the midst, moving past the Element of Fire into the present Element of Earth... Usually this is a Monthly offering leans mostly toward what we've come to call the Vinyasa Flow style of practice, while those aspects remain present, this monthly practice also lends itself to the roots of the Taoist Style, which brings in elements of the 5000 year old Kundalini Yoga & or Tao Yin Lung Shen (the way of the dragon spirit) Qigong traditions... Still Grounded in the concept of harmonizing with the earth’s cycles, less active / Yin inspired practice explores the subtleties of a slow paced relaxed flow / Vinyasa sequencing that’s geared toward unwinding in steady alignment with the Yin energy of the setting sun. Expect mellow variations of Sun or Moon Salutation / Surya and Chandra Namaskar and a gentle energetic flow of / Vinyasa sequences that keep it all connected.  This class is designed to inspire the embodiment of fluid movement and softly posed postures...

ReikiSound Immersion Live Music Event

Join us for the ReikiSound(TM) Immersion (formerly the Sonic Flower Sound Immersion) w/ Scotty Soniq

Plan for a totally immersive and Life Enhancing sound experience. Participants rest horizontally or seated comfortably while surrounded by 7 singing quartz crystal bowls. The tones emanated are extremely resonant and are not only heard, but can be felt in one’s body as they produce a field of deep coherence -- a structured yet always-evolving cache of information rich in potential and waiting to be tapped. Typical Immersions usually last for 75 minutes and can be merged with your Inner or Outer Work. The journey is yours to choose.

When facilitating or co-creating a Sound Session of ANY kind -- whether I use singing bowls, drums, voice, or simple DJing -- I engage the Reiki / Holy Fire energies. ALL sessions are a session of ReikiSound(TM), and ALL sessions are RICH with Potential and Catalyst for one's Harmonious Evolution into the Future. What does THIS session have in store for you?

Special Event: Sonic Flower Sound Immersion

Special Event: Sonic Flower Sound Immersion 

Sonic Flower Sound Immersion 

Sonic Flower is a totally immersive and Life Enhancing sound experience. Participants rest horizontally or seated comfortably while surrounded by 7 singing quartz crystal bowls. The tones emanated are extremely resonant and are not only heard, but can be felt in one’s body as they produce a field of deep coherence -- a structured yet always-evolving cache of information rich in potential and waiting to be tapped. Typical Immersions usually last for 75 minutes and can be merged with your Inner or Outer Work. The journey is yours to choose.
