Mindfulness Meditation and Yin Yoga Workshop Series with Becca Medvin

  • White Birch Natural Medicine & Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In this workshop series we’ll use the practice and principles of yin yoga to facilitate and deepen our exploration of mindfulness meditation. Yin yoga features long, passive holds that unwind buried tension in the connective tissues. The receptivity and stillness that the practice cultivates helps us drop deeply into presence and embody an open hearted awareness. Creating the space within ourselves for softness, acceptance, and surrender allows us to let go of effort, moving from a state of doing into one of simply being. From this wider awareness, we can approach our meditation practice with less effort and more allowance, finding the space to rest in the truth of our wholeness and come home to ourselves. 

All levels welcome. 

Classes held the first Wednesday of each month, 7-9pm August-December 2019
 
Wednesday, August 7th: The Heart of Awareness: Self-acceptance, Self-compassion, and Self-love as the Foundations of Mindfulness

Joy Curth and Lisa Kawski invite you to an evening of Reiki and Guided Meditation and Sound Healing for the Soul.

Everything is vibration. Vibration is energy. We connect through energy, to ourselves as well as others.

Creating ceremony, ritual and offering sacred sound is a means to connect with one's self on an intimate and personal level. Gentle guidance through meditation invites relaxation - turning inward, expanding outward.

Listen to your heart. Let the soothing sounds of crystal singing bowls, chimes, rattles, drums and more transport and heal you. Let the energy of reiki heal you.

Sound vibration is a powerful tool to help recalibrate the body, mind and spirit. Feel yourself relax and melt away during this time dedicated just for you.

Reiki is the transmission of the Universal Life Force from the certified guide to you. Reiki is a centuries old non invasive energetic healing in which the client is fully clothed, reclined and relaxed. Your healer will scan your vibrational energy noticing which Chakras (energy centers) require clearing. The healing energy is intuitive and knows where to go. Retune your inherent force of life and light.

Please bring anything that will aid in your comfort, as this meditation you will be lying on the floor, such as a yoga mat. We will have bolsters and blankets available for your use.

Cost: $35 pre-paid, $40 at the door. Tickets are non-refundable-includes a cup of Société healing tea and/or glass of wine. Space is limited to 10 people.

 “Imagine this- there was a time in history, a long time ago, when the bounce and sway of a woman’s hips was considered so beautiful that they set it to music and made a dance out of it...”

 We will have healing tea created by Societe and discuss the history of Tribal Style Belly Dance, and the use of Sacred Dance throughout the ages.    

 We will move in a meditative dance flow using the movement vocabulary of American Tribal Style® Belly Dance, created by Carolena Nericcio of Fat Chance Belly Dance. ATS® is a style of dance that celebrates the feminine form. It evolved from the cultural tapestry of San Francisco, fusing elements of Flamenco, Classical Indian Dance, Middle Eastern Belly Dance, Ballet, and folk dances of Europe and the Mediterranean Basin.

 We will end with a gentle Temple Dance Yoga flow, using elegant postures inspired by statues of sacred temple dancers from India and the mythology of yoga.
