We invite you to Welcome the Summer Season by joining us in movement of stagnant energy, planting intentions, and deep relaxation and release.
As nature moves out of lighter spring to the much warmer summer, the pulse of life quickens, the earth warms, and the fire element is the strongest. When our intentions are in alignment with the seasons we flow with nature instead of working against it. In Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, the fire element is the strongest during the summer.
We will begin the evening with Golden Mylk from Samovar and transition into light Qigong movement to support the natural energies of the body. Then we will settle as a community to plant seeds for this next season. We will then move into a flowing orchestration of healing sounds and yoga nidra to carry you into a state of grounded relaxation and expanded consciousness. Aromatherapy with essential oils will assist in the flow of energy. Together we will melt into a vibration of expanded consciousness, and emerge feeling well-rested and fully supported.
Dress comfortably and bring water, yoga mat, blankets/socks, and eye pillow. Feel free to bring an item to be supercharged under the full moon and from vibrations of the sound bath. We will serve Golden Mylk from Samovar before and after the event. Please note the 7PM arrival and 7:30PM start time.
