Supermoon & Lunar Eclipse Chanting & Meditation

Sunday September 27, 2015
7 pm

To all the kirtan and stargazers lovers,

A total lunar eclipse will share the sky with a SuperMoon this Sunday after the Kirtan. The Partial eclipse begins at 10:07 p.m, Sunday evening with the total eclipse completing at 11:47 p.m. So for those who wants, and if the sky permits to reveal this magical Natural Wonder, we will go after the Kirtan to the Herring Cove Look-Off so we can witness the beauty of this celestial alchemy.

A supermoon occurs when a full or new moon makes its closest approach to Earth, appearing bigger and brighter than usual. It will be the closest full moon of the year, about 30,000 miles closer than the average distance. The combination of the two will result in a "blood supermoon" - caused by it turning a rusty colour as the moon passes through the Earth's shadow.

So the Chanting & Meditation will start at 7 pm, followed by a finger snack potluck. We will then, for those who wants, make our way to the Ocean, make sure to bring warm layers and appropriate shoes so you can be comfortable by the shore.

Free event.

Yin Yoga and Sound Healing

Friday October 23, 2015
7-9:15 pm

Yin Yoga is a deeply meditative practice in which you passively hold postures for an extended period of time in order to encourage the slow and safe opening and strengthening of connective tissues within the body. When combined with sound vibration, Yin Yoga becomes a powerful practice to energize the meridians, hydrate human tissue, regulate the breath and relax the nervous system. The sonic vibration dissolves physical and emotional obstruction, while stimulating the free flow of life-force energy throughout the whole being. As we hold a posture, we let the sound be our teacher, and we become a resonating chamber that is tuned to the cosmic pulse of the Universe.

Cost: 20$
Location: Herring Cove

Sacred Beauty

November 8, 2015

9:45 am- 4:30 pm

Holding sacred space enables connection to our ancestral power and wisdom and helps us weave our highest dreams and visions for the greatest good of all.

Ritual nourishes our body, mind, emotions, and spirit. In this modern era there are fewer opportunities to honour these rites but they are not forgotten. They are alive, etched in the fabric of our feminine essence, drenched in our cellular memory, and they are always waiting to awaken! The heart of the Goddess blossoms when women recognize their true, simple, and gentle beauty as divinity itself. When we share in sacred dance and movement, partake in food together, create with our hands and our voices, we invite grace to inhabit our body-temple and invoke power and spiritual meaning into our daily lives.This journey is an invitation to all women who seek to embrace true and authentic beauty. We will share in practices that respect the natural cycles of impermanence that spiral into our lives ceaselessly.We will experience the body as an oracle, a divine communication instrument for truth and inner guidance. Let us enter into the sanctuary of the Goddess – each as a unique expression of grace and honoring all that we are!

Our time together will include adornment and sacred marking, sensual yoga & dance journey and other delicious and blissful practices of devotion and connection...

Sacred Exchange:Early bird $ 65.00+ HST (includes all supplies) After Nov 2, 75$
**You will be asked to bring some food to share as part of a ritual potluck of beauty and vitality

Ecstatic Body Posture

Thursday November 26, 2015
7-9:30 pm

Our tribal ancestors have used various gestures, prayers, rhythms, and rituals to expand their mind beyond the realm of ordinary reality. Ecstatic practices were used and are still used today by cultures from around the world as a portal to connect the seen with the unseen. They are used to heal, to unify, and to ask for spiritual guidance. During this ritual we will prepare ourselves to journey into ecstatic trance. This includes establishing sacred space; meditation and breathing practices; and repetitive rhythm work with rattles or drum. Together, we will partake of the ritual through the use of ecstatic postures.

Bring journal, pen, and blanket.
Please confirm your presence before coming to the event.
