Crystal Bowl Sound Healing

Jill Michelwith Jill Michel
Saturday, February 3
1:00pm – 2:30pm

 

 

 

Sound Healing is an ancient practice used to promote higher states of consciousness, awareness, healing and connection to ourselves and all that is. The crystal singing bowls emit healing tones, frequencies and vibrations that carry us into deeper states of relaxation where we are able to let got of the mind chatter and drift into higher states of self awareness, consciousness and connection. By accessing altered states of the mind thru sound we move into an expanded state beyond what we think we know and move into the field of coherence where we are connected to each other and all that is. The healing tones then invite us to move beyond this place into even higher states of consciousness and morphic fields of information. This is considered the download state, where we are able to connect to and access energies and information that reorganize aspects of the mind that are no longer useful -such as belief systems that continue to attract situations and experiences in life that no longer feel good or may feel limiting. The vibrations also have the ability to recharge our energy fields and energy centers and therefore allow the physical body to relax and release tension, shift and open.

Jill Michel will begin first with a guided meditation into the body where we will we focus our energy connecting deeply into our bodies and being curious about what the body is truly feeling. We will then extend our awareness into our connection to the earth which will naturally give us a sense of safety, support and anchoring. The sound healing will follow bringing us into the higher states of awareness and healing.

Highland Sutra Circle


with Stephen Tortorello

Wednesday, January 31
7:30pm – 9:00pm

 

 

 

The intention of the Sutra Circle is to explore the myriad principles of yoga philosophy through various works of fiction and non-fiction and to learn how to weave these powerful principles into our contemporary lifestyles. No experience of yoga or yoga philosophy is necessary to participate. Our next circle will review The Alchemist by Paul Coelho.

From the Publisher:

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho continues to change the lives of its readers forever. With more than two million copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has established itself as a modern classic, universally admired.

Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found.

The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories can, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, above all, following our dreams.
