Tuesday, November 28 at 7 PM - 9:30 PM
Join us for an intimate evening of sharing our hearts and voices through sacred sound and ceremonial cacao. Together, we will co-create a safe space of healing and transformation, in which we can release blockages, reclaim our power, and shift our frequencies, coming into resonance with our natural state.
ABOUT CACAO: Our delicious cacao has been nurtured by Mayans in the Pacific rainforest region of Guatemala, and directly-traded to and processed by loving hands at the magical Lake Atitlán. Traditionally, cacao has been used shamanically by the ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures; it has been rightly called the "Food of the Gods", bringing re-membrance of our divinity. The spiritual energy of cacao brings a subtle heart-opening and activation of the higher energy centers, making it ideal for spiritual exploration and multi-dimensional communication. As a loving partner, cacao assists us in personal and planetary healing in the light of the highest good.
Drinking cacao is always optional – you're welcome to enjoy the ceremony with or without actually partaking in the cacao!
$20 in advance / $25 same day
About the instructor:
Maggie Taurick, visiting us from San Francisco, is a yogini, designer, and carrier of sacred sound. She has been practicing yoga for over 12 years and is forever a student, constantly deepening her practice and exploring ways to integrate it further into her life. This exploration has led her to the unique combination of sound and cacao, which she became immersed in while living in Guatemala. With the help of these tools, she guides students to recognize the infinite wisdom within them; bringing more intention, freedom, and awareness to their daily lives.
Saturday, September 9 - 3:30 PM - 5 PM
Join us for an exploration of finding balance through music, Ayurveda and Bhakti Yoga.
Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of love and devotion. It is often practiced through uplifting music and chanting shared in a group called a Kirtan.
Those who love music, singing or chanting may think all music is good. However, some music may put you to sleep while it energizes another. Why can one song bring up feelings of irritability or even anger while another soothes your soul?
Ayurveda, or the Science of Life, explains why everything we do (including the smallest things) can bring us closer to balance or further away. It all depends on our unique blend of qualities.
IN THIS CLASS:
We will learn about Ayurveda and our individual nature or doshas.
We will identify the quality of music most suited to our nature and for bringing us equanimity. Then we will practice Bhakti Yoga and finish with our own Kirtan!
Come raise your voice in song!
Love donations appreciated, no one will be turned away.
