Dream Yoga Sound Bath

Using the strength of sound, the engaged grace of the senses, and the mutual support of one another, we will nourish our souls, travel the worlds within our souls, and allow creative insight to blossom. We will enlist the engaged mind to create an epic sonic meditative affirmation and embody the eternally wise being that lives just beneath the noise of daily living.

The overarching theme to all these “Sound Meditations” is DEEP REST and RENEWAL and the RESTORATION of our overly stimulated nervous systems, a return to Heart centered intelligence, and tapping into the universal flow of synchronicity to facilitate the events of your life!

Transformation of consciousness, an explosion of creative ideas, lucid dreaming states, integration of life challenges, Conscious Sleep, and the rejuvenation of the “zest for life” are some of the benefits you might see.

“Unspoken Voices” A Trauma Informed Group Series

At the core, trauma is about the loss of connection – to ourselves, our bodies, to our families, to others and the world around us.   And, this loss of connection is often difficult to recognize because it can happen slowly over an extended period of time.  We learn to adapt to the small changes without much notice.  What we do notice is a sense that we do not feel quite right.  And, this often becomes a gradual undermining of our self-esteem, confidence, well-being and connection to life. 

Healing from trauma can take years, even decades.  Acknowledging that we hold trauma is the first step. 

With this in mind, Samsara Wellness Center is offering a three part series called “Unspoken Voices” taught by organizational psychologist and trauma informed therapist, Monique Rogers.  This series includes three 90 minute classes detailing how the body holds trauma and techniques to help restore balance. 

“A key to moving through trauma is learning to separate out the sensations, thoughts, images, and emotions of habitual traumatic patterning.  When we can do this, these things begin to lose their hold on us.  This is often where healing begins.”  - Monique Rogers, MS, E-RYT

Series 1                June 5                   How the Body Holds Trauma

Series 2                June 12                Releasing Trauma and Restoring Balance

Series 3                June 19                Creating a Practice of Transforming Trauma

Ambient Dreams Guided Meditation Experience

In the spirit of Yoga Nidra and Conscious sleep we invite you to come experience deeply restful hour of guided meditation and visualizations aligned with Ambient music specifically chosen and designed to:

*Heal frazzled nerves

*Nourish your nervous system

*Regain and recall your vitality

*Feed your energy meridians

*Create a well of CALM in your body

Imagine a space where you listen to dreamy ambient music, nestled up in blankets, while being gently guided through meditations that will leave you feeling rested, nourished, vital, calm and transformed.

 

The verbally guided meditations are made "on-the-spot" and contain simple breath awareness, visualizations, energy exercises and more. They all follow a theme of reclaiming your energetic sovereignty, deep rest (conscious sleep), and living life from a rested, calm nervous system. When that is happening, your life path tends to reflect the high vibe, yet grounded and stable choices of an awakened mind.

THE NOURISHED SELF: A Sensory Ceremony of the Highest Vibes

 Sound healing and medicinal mushroom pop-up cafe and workshop for health!

A shared community journey through the world of medicinal mushrooms,breath, movement, and a 60 min. sound bath meditation.

We invite you into the world of medicinal mushrooms and sound frequency to build immunity, strengthen chi, create a calm nervous system, enhance your cognition, and prevent disease. After a short visual presentation detailing the properties of various fungi, as well as a Q&A, we will directly contact the fungi kingdom through the avenue of homemade, On-the-spot, elixirs, "lattés", and drinks for you to taste and enjoy!

Afterwards, we will float into a special Sound Healing workshop from 4-7pm that is an extended version of the normal types of sound baths we do at the studio. Imagine the power of the Sound journey enhanced by the calming properties of functional mushrooms (non-hallucinogenic!) You will immerse yourself in the experience after having been beautifully led through some simple and relaxing movement and breath exercises by Stephen Winters of Samsara Wellness Center. Think of this as a more Ceremonial Approach to the whole experience. We are keeping attendance on the lower side in order to facilitate a deeper and connective journey for each participant. 

 

The addition of the mushrooms is designed to heighten the senses through the sharing of potent yet subtle plant pharmacology, from china and native to America, that have been used for hundreds of years to facilitate meditative and awakened states of consciousness, as well as build a strong immune system to ward off illness. 

Take a sonic musical and meditative journey designed to create DEEP REST in your nervous system utilizing the profound frequencies of the Gongs, Crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, Chimes, Ocean drum, and other vibrational instruments.  100% Organic Essential oils, blended by Docta Nick of Essential Oil Wizardry, will be woven into the moment as well. 

In order to keep the experience personal and powerful, we are inviting a limited number of souls to come on board and come on a journey of the senses with us. In deep gratitude for the gifts given to humanity, we have set a place at the table for you, as you are. Come play!
