Meditative Movement and Sound Healing with Beverley and Surya Meditative movement is led by Beverley Viljakainen. Meditative movement has its origins in the centuries-old art, science and practice of the healing branch of Taoist Qigong. It consists of various sequences of gently flowing movements, synchronized with the breath, appropriate to certain times of the day, i.e., morning and evening, and to specific purposes, i.e., to strengthen our innate healing abilities, whatever our age and stage, and to enable those with various disabilities to achieve a greater degree of health. Meditative Movement is yet another way to achieve physical vitality, mental clarity and focus, emotional balance, and a sense of connectedness to ourselves, one another and the wider world around us. You are invited to join Beverley as she guides the flowing sequence of Qigong movements. This moving meditation is a beautiful way to restore your body to its natural equilibrium.
Sound Healing is the art of tuning in. We are like instruments and our whole bio-fieild is sensitive to our environment. We take many things on in our busy lives and the healing frequencies of sound can realign and balance us. The frequencies allow us to come into a deep state of relaxation, allowing transformation to arise. Surya Leigh is passionate about sound healing and brings the sounds of the singing bowl and various other instruments into her sound healing work. All of life is vibration and the vibrational sounds of the bowls provide a powerful way to touch in with the subtle energy flow or Qi that flows within. All are invited to enter the flow of movement and sound. This is a further invitation to enter the flow of life and the peaceful river that runs through our beings.
Sound Bath with Surya and Marie-Eve A Sound Bath can provide an experience of relaxation and transformation through sound and vibration. Sound Baths are one of the most soothing, relaxing and rejuvenating tools that I have experienced. A Sound Bath or Sound Meditation is like a sound massage. The healing frequencies created in a Sound Bath can affect our emotional, mental and spiritual well being in a profound way and can open us up to expanded awareness and the presence of now. Sometimes participants feel like they are submerged in sound or are washed in waves of sound. Words like “cleansed” and “cleared” are sometime used to describe ones experience. For others emotions or memories might arise. In other cases joy, elation or a deep relaxation. It can be different each time. Come and see what opens up for you in the sound.
Drumming Circle hosted by Tracy Come and join the drumming circle on the last Friday of each month. All are welcome to come and feel the collective beat. It doesn't matter if you are new to drumming or have been drumming for a long time, Sai offers an open and safe place to explore drumming in community. The beat of our heart offers us our own rhythm. We just have to listen.
