Gong Bath w/ Michele Anderson

Monday, July 26th | 7:15-8:15 pm| $20 or $15/members 

The use of vibration and sound is a critical tool for healing the human nervous system. We have all been in a state of uncertainty, anxiety, and dis-ease. These states of being tax the nervous system – both over-driving the sympathetic (flight or flight) nervous system and inhibiting the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system. The yogis wisely noted that sound is the language of the parasympathetic nervous system and soothes a vata (or constant movement) imbalance. Here is an opportunity to allow your nervous system to repair and rejuvenate in a bath of sound vibrations. Class will begin with some insights about current astrology, stretching or calming yoga, and then 30-40 minutes of a gong bath. 

 

 Self Love + Sankofa w/ Priscilla Momah

Saturday,  August 21st| 5-7 pm| $30 

Nurture your growth through the practice of Self Love + Sankofa, an interpersonal journey into the art of accepting, appreciating and honoring yourself as you are.This transformative experience builds a foundation to how we can find peace within ourselves, within others, and ultimately with the world. Sankofa is a West African principle from the Akan people of Ghana. It translates to “go back and fetch”, meaning to go back and fetch what has been lost and bring it to the now. In this self nurturing practice we will explore our connection to our roots more intimately and listen deeply to our inner knowledge in order to retrieve and integrate wisdom revealed to us in the present moment.

This workshop invites you to go deep and get introspective in order to better understand, accept and love ourselves by increasing our awareness of our roots in order to understand our personal needs and purpose. Self Love + Sankofa is a soulful embodiment experience fusing live music, meditation, breath work and mindfulness. It is a tool for recognizing our humanity and creating social change. Broken down into three parts, Self Love + Sankofa explores: 

August 21st: Action to Liberation: Reimagining what community looks like and how we maneuver in it.

Here lies an invitation to challenge your way of thinking as we learn to find peace while navigating the realms of discomfort in order to transmute it.  In a world where there is a deep longing to understand  the possibilities that lie beyond disconnection, and social unrest, Self Love + Sankofa offers a pathway to our resilience. Allow this practice to be a vehicle to support your journey in becoming a better version of you by providing an opportunity to explore who you are in your full entirety while recognizing and value your strengths and opportunities for development.
