Full Moon
Sound Baths

IMG_4937.jpg

ALL classes are held in our garden level art studio accessible by stairs only unless otherwise noted.

Sound Healing Therapy/Gong Meditation is a unique type of sound practice that involves using therapeutic singing bowls and gong instruments to bring about healing, relaxation, stress and tension relief. This practice is also sometimes referred to as a “sound bath” because participants are “bathed” in meditation sound waves, vibrations and healing frequencies.

During our session together, I will incorporate kundalini breathwork, guided meditation, and sound healing.

The benefits of this sound bath are:
*Deepening relaxation.
*Lowering stress and anxiety.
*Improving mood and well-being.
*Improving sleep.
*Heightening focus and energy.
*A feeling of rejuvenation.

As an added bonus, participants will have time at the end to try the sound bath instruments out for themselves to truly have an interactive experience.

COLD MOON
SOUND BATH

CLASS FEE:

$40

Package of 4: $135

The Cold Moon Symbolizes fulfillment and culmination and is a time to look back on your successes and challenges. The Cold Moon is the final full moon of the year. A true time for reflection. The time of the Cold Moon is a time of deep rest. It is a time to attend to the rituals of renewal and to practices of peace. Bring this into daily life in ways both big and small.

Occurring near the winter solstice, the Cold Moon invites you to take a closer look at what lies beneath the seemingly cold and frozen surface. The nights are the longest of the year, so there is a potent opportunity to explore the shadows, the places within that often remain unexamined.

During the Cold Moon sound bath, we will explore shadow work and mirror work as well. Going into the dark spots of our psyche, and shedding a light on what we don’t want the world to see is a vital part of our everyday healing. Following that sometimes painful work with the positive affirmations of mirror work will be powerful during this time of reflection. The sound bath will activate the Heart Chakra allowing us to emit loving energy, making us more capable of living ourselves and others. The Heart Chakra is one of the upper three chakras which connect more with the spiritual self rather than the physical body. This energy center helps us to see good in everything and everyone and appreciate beauty in the smallest details.

During the cold Midwinter days of January, we celebrate the spiritual meaning of the Full Wolf Moon. A brand new year full of optimism and hope has begun, but the days are still dark and short. Anticipation for the coming year fills our hearts as we snuggle in our homes, trying to keep warm and cozy.

January’s Wolf Full Moon is a powerful time for self-reflection, gratitude, and magic! This Cold Moon sound bath will focus on activating all of the chakras rather than focusing on one specific one. Bringing your energetic body to balance, the sound bath will also include a warming Cacao ceremony using ceremonial grade organic cacao. 

Gathering together to drink cacao can create healing, connection, and inspiration. Perfect for the first full moon of 2023! Cacao has the ability to guide each of us to embrace the depth of our heart as a starting point for around healing and remembrance. Drinking cacao in ceremony is helpful for gaining clarity, setting intentions, and doing healing work and inner processing. Being in a sacred space helps you get out of your normal frame of mind, allowing you to experience new insights and perspective. Sharing cacao brings us into the same energetic frequency. This often results in deeper, more intimate connection with ourselves and each other.

Package of 4: $135

The chilly February Snow Moon signifies renewal in the spirit. The snow moon gives people a chance to reset and reevaluate. It's about new dreams and overcoming past hurts, forging forward with greater sense of purpose. February is a notoriously chilly month, this particular February is one for building cozy relationships and having a brighter outlook.

During this full Snow Moon, we will activate the Throat Chakra. The throat chakra is the first of the upper 3 chakras which connect more with the spiritual body rather than the physical. The throat chakra serves as the entrance to the higher spiritual realms. Although as its name suggests, the throat chakra is located in the throat, it is more associated with the mouth, tongue, neck, ears, and thyroid. Its is also known as “the mouth of god” as it is said to give voice to our soul. A balanced throat chakra can both hear and speak divine wisdom. 

Activating our throat chakra will help to give voice to past pain and trauma you may be healing from. It will help give you sense of purpose as you communicate with partners, and other important people in your life, giving strength to those relationships.

As we celebrate St. Valentine’s day in February, having a balanced throat chakra will help us express love to ourselves and others as well.

The Worm Moon garners its name from the worms that wiggle their way through the warm soil as the seasons change from frosty winter to brilliant spring. Worms are a vital part of a healthy soil’s ecosystem. Their wriggling movement creates important space in the soil, transforming waste into the crucial nutrients plants require for healthy growth.

As the Worm Moon sits in the sky, full of reflected brilliance, this is a time to remember that bringing movement to a situation is what can create the foundation for massive change. The spiritual meaning of the Worm Moon is a reminder of how change can be happening underneath the surface, even if it is not seen or recognized.

During this sound bath, we will start with kundalini breath work, then explore some full body movement to usher in great change in our seasons of life before settling into the sound bath its self. Like a butterfly in its metamorphosis, we will experience the slow stillness of a cocoon state, but also the vibrance end expansion that movement can bring. Like the worms in the soil, our movement will create space for matter to turn find the surface and blossom.

April's moon is known as the pink moon, and like the many other astrological events that signal a time for change, this is the perfect opportunity to get rid of any cosmic junk you've been carrying around. The pink moon is all about newness, freshness, and letting go of the things that aren't serving you.

The pink moon is named after the pink flowers such as phlox that are the first to bloom in spring. It is a time for rebirth and connecting with nature.

Activating the Root Chakra is the perfect way to put us back in energetic balance. The Root Chakra governs the foundations of our lives. This includes our basic needs, sense of security, home and family life, and how we feel in our bodies and on this earth. Spring is such a transitional time as we come out of slow moving winter and into our warmer seasons of growth and expansion. Grounding into ourselves and our root chakra will help to keep us firmly on our paths, giving us an inner sense of security which manifests as clear thinking and good concentrations. It allows us to set goals and prioritize and carry out tasks in order to achieve those goals.

$40

Package of 4: $135

The May Full Flower Moon meaning is a time to focus on your spiritual growth. This full moon is all about blossoming into your best self and reaching your highest potential.

Now is the time to bring goals and dreams to life. You might need to answer some hard questions about yourself and what needs to happen to make your intentions materialize. Don’t let anxiety or nervousness hold you back. 

The Solar Plexus, aka Manipura serves as our personal energy center. It relates to our personal identity and power as well as self-esteem, willpower, and ability to achieve our goals. Activating the solar plexus during the full flower moon is akin to giving ourselves a spiritual “gut check”. This moon is all about reaching our goals and highest potential. This is the perfect time to determine what blocks are impeding our spiritual growth and beyond so we may release them. We will harness this energy to go deep within and be honest with the way we feel about ourselves and the path we are on. It’s a great time to make changes and usher in the sun that comes with June’s summer solstice.
