Healing Sound Bath w/ Kirk and Andrew
Friday, September 15th, 6-8pm
Come, enjoy being bathed in sacred sounds of gongs, singing bowls, didgeridoo, drums, flute, and chimes - all instruments that have been used to heal and transform for thousands of years! The sounds put the mind at ease, triggering a meditative state, and often inducing a higher conscious awareness. You can leave your worries at the door, relax, let go, release. Singing bowls will be played on and around you, as well, sending vibrations into the physical and energetic bodies to clear, align, and detoxify. Come experience this magic!
Led by Kirk Jones, and Andrew
We have blankets and pillows, but bring extra if you'd like additional cozy.
Note: This will take place at our YURT! Drive past the pole barn, park along the road, wear weather appropriate foot gear to walk up the hill!

An Intro to Shamanic Journey Work w/ Nicole Burke
(email with interest, date TBA)
In this introductory workshop, we will use the sound of the drum to travel beyond the realm of ordinary consciousness and open to the information that lies beyond. Traditionally used by Shamans for healing purposes, journeying is a type of "seeing" that can be available to anyone willing to delve into connecting more deeply with their intuitive sense. We'll learn about the ethics of these practices, safe ways to explore other realms, how to welcome the directions, work with spirit allies and take a journey to the lower world.
No experience necessary. Please bring a hand drum or a rattle, a notebook, and a eye pillow or blindfold.
Cost: $65 . Pre-registration is required. Partial scholarships available.
Eros, Vitality & Healthy Aggression: A Men's Soul Immersion Day
*postponed, please inquire about new dates*
: 9:30 a.m. - 11p.m
Awakening to a life of deeper meaning where vitality and new possibilities for how to live, how to love, and how to make new choices beyond any reality that has become uniquely familiar, is alive in each one of us.
Christopher Royer and Nathan Maez co-lead this experience which offers you the opportunity to delve further into the sacred places inside, which in some ways are more real than any other inside you. So often, in our lives, we have a difficult time expressing ourselves fully and authentically. Together we will explore themes of vitality, Eros and aggression in a way that joins heart, body and mind as we follow the call of our souls toward wholeness and our own personal truth. We will practice deepening into support outside of ourselves because as men, we have the tendencies to x, go it alone and force our will.
As a group, we will create a joint space to allow something to happen together that simply could not happen anywhere else.
- Eros - the creative, spontaneous fire inside us
- Vitality - the power of life present in all living things
- Aggression - a potentially constructive force that we can put forward into the world
