Join Astrud and her Cosmic Caravan- Nicholas Soter on Guitar
Jun Ishimuro on Flute And Ajaya Davidson on drum for a sweet evening of Kirtan.

Through the power of sound and vibration we shake things up from the inside out, we surrender and cut through ideas and beliefs of separation and celebrate the powerful union with the Divine, peace and with each other. Love and devotion are the essence behind the practice of Bhakti Yoga and the ability to surrender to your highest loving self - One mantra at a time is what this practice awakens in us.

Astrud is a celebrated Kirtan Wallah, based out of San Francisco. She shares the practice of Bhakti Yoga the Yoga of Devotion through her devotional Kirtans as well as teaches the essence of Bhakti Yoga to Yoga teachers in training. Her practice began over 20 years ago in NYC and she has been devoted to the path ever since. For her, Mantras are like road maps that lead directly to the source, the heart. The longing to connect with spirit, light and one another is celebrated in the Bhakti tradition so it is through these relationships that we prosper and deepen our love for the Divine, for one another and for ourselves.

Womb * Sense:
Clear Out Past Pains, Make Way for Pleasure
with Gemini Adams

Sunday May 27th at 8pm

A divinely designed fusion of yoga, sensual movement and somatic therapy held in the solidarity of sisterhood.

Your womb is meant to be a source of power and pleasure. Not a place to store fear, grief, pain or shame. Yet, so many of us do. The legacy of relational grief, miscarriage, abortion, birth trauma, sexual wounding and abuse, menstrual shame and the dishonouring of "down there" causes us frustration, confusion and blocks our capacity to fully "be" in our bodies, have a voice or experience the pleasure that we truly deserve. In this supportive circle, you’ll be invited to release and shake out these past pains, re-connect to your sensuality and sensations — your true feminine essence and power — so that you can hear the truth of what your heart, body and soul really desire.

Because, a woman is designed for creation. Not just of human life, but of your soul's unique expression, your individual blueprint, what you came here to give birth to and be. When we attempt to create from the mind we're missing the magic ingredient that makes this possible. So, you'll also learn the secret to switching on your passion to bring your world-changing, life-giving dreams and creations into being. All women are welcomed into this temple. Bring your sisters, daughters, grandmothers and aunts. Just wear something deliciously comfy.

She's also the author of several award-winning conscious living books and articles. Originally from England, you'll find her popping in to teach at studios, retreats, festivals and training's, sharing deeply healing practices with the world.

Hummingbird & Cacao Shamanic Sound Ceremony
with Micah and Elaine

Saturday, June 16th at 8:30pm

An evening of Cacao Ceremony and shamanic sound journeying with the spirit of Hummingbird. In a lush sound field of Himalayan bowls, voice, Gongs, drums, bells, rattles, and conches, we will fully relax and open to the guidance and medicine of these beloved plant and animal spirit teachers.

A shamanic journey is a traditional indigenous practice. It uses sacred sound to cultivate an altered theta state to receive guidance and wisdom from compassionate allies and/or your higher self. In this journey we are inviting Cacao ~ a master plant teacher whose specific medicine is to open our hearts to our highest potential and fullest blossoming through unity. We have found that this medicine synergizes beautifully with the spirit of Hummingbird ~ an animal totem who supports joy, vitality, renewal, persistence, agility, playfulness, and finding life’s nectar.

An Indigenous myth recalls that when the Earth and its people are out of balance, Cacao (raw chocolate) will come out of the rainforest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony and balance. We are now living in those times. The cacao ceremony is gifted from Spirit as a tool to heal separation and move into Oneness Consciousness.

*cacao (theobroma) is the unprocessed, raw source of chocolate.

Micah Sheiner is a vibrational artist/healer. He explores & teaches sound through bowls, gongs, voice, & a variety of shamanic instruments. Micah weaves soundscapes for healing, journeying, & meditation ~ conducting sound baths, individual sessions, & trainings in CA & internationally. resonantsoundscapes.com

Elaine Alghani is a Shamanic artist, practitioner, teacher, and guide. She is passionate about inspiring people to embrace Integrative Shamanism as a path to personal power, soul, inner connectedness and heart-centered awareness. In her training programs students participate in and learn to share the ancient wisdom of Shamanism to enhance the quality, depth, and vibrancy of their lives, businesses and relationships to self, each other and the earth. ~ myshamanicsoul.com

Seeing the Unseen
Women’s Sacred Circle with Chanting and A Flower Essence Journey Hosted By Gia Vajrini Buonaguro

June 23rd at 8pm

Come and join our Women’s Sacred Circle for an evening of Chanting, Sharing, and Awakening. Spend and evening in a safe space with Women who want to create Divine Friendship, Build Community, and Offer Loving Support as we open ourselves to our hearts. As women, we intuitively know the joy that comes from supporting and listening to one another. We also know the experience of feeling the need to go deeper, into ourselves, into life, into our hearts. This 2 hour workshop will give you the opportunity to share sacred time with like minded others and hold space for an experience of Super-Consciousness. We will use Flower Essences to assist us in our exploration.

Flower Essences are plant medicine made from the flowers of a plant. Resting the flowers in purified water allows the water to accept the ‘imprint’ or ‘essence’ of the flower. That water becomes the Flower Essence. When you take the Flower Essence internally, it resonates with your essence and creates space for a shift within you. The shift can be emotional, physical, psychological, spiritual depending on the flower.

Chanting is a Sacred, Joyful, and Healing Practice of quieting the mind and opening the heart to feel union with Divine Source. A devotee asked Paramhansa Yogananda “How can we find God in this life?” and the Master answered, “Chanting is half the battle”.

I look forward to sharing this evening with you.
