to the Earth Element
August 26, 2017
a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Join us in a 3-hour experience of
movement and sound to heal the body and
relax the mind. Working in the tradition
of Kundalini Yoga, we will use easeful,
dynamic movement linked with the rhythm
of the breath, posture, and meditation
to facilitate greater presence in the
body, stabilize emotions and find
greater focus and clarity.
will conclude with a half hour savasana,
or final relaxation, with live gong.
Because the tones and vibrations of the
gong do not follow a predictable pattern
like the repetition of mantra, the mind
cannot make sense of it and will move into
a state of relaxed awareness. In this way,
the gong is an instrument for creating a
spontaneous meditative state that require
the listener to simply let go and give way
to the gong – allowing for deep relaxation
into the joy of simply being and
rejuvenating the nervous system.
