Summer Solstice Celebration

We are having a 2-day summer solstice party! At this time of year as the sun starts to wane, we have a chance to recommit to healing ourselves and releasing anything in our life that isn't serving us. This is a potent energy similar to that of the full moon, opening the door for us to let go.

Full Description

Friday night is Sound Healing, thefirst event in our summer solstice celebration! A peaceful evening of relaxation and healing. Experience deep inner stillness and calm while the body and mind are soothed and relaxed to the therapeutic sounds of a gong and singing bowls. - $10

On Saturday morning, join us for a Yoga Mala, a practice consisting of 108 Sun Salutations. 108 is an auspicious number in the yogic tradition with connections to both astronomical calculations and the energetic body. Performing a yoga mala is a cleansing practice, both physically and energetically. Following the practice will be a potluck lunch and Mala-making workshop. **There is no fee for this class, but we ask that you bring a vegetarian dish for the potluck!

Saturday afternoon, learn the art of making your own mala! In this workshop we will discuss mantra, japa meditation, and the uses of mala in yoga and meditation practices as well as the history and the significance of 108. Participants will be provided with: 108 Sandalwood beads, Hemp cord for knotting, Tassel thread, and Rudrashka seeds for Guru beads. Also a variety of painted Mango wood beads and faux gemstone beads for use as counter beads. Participants are welcome to bring their own precious gemstones if they would like to include them. - $35
