Monthly Full Moon Gong Meditation with Darcy Arthur
Amplify the energy of the Full Moon with this celestial sound healing. We will shift our minds, bodies and spirits with the healing vibration of the gong and explore the sacred numerology and astrology of the month. Our ancestors lived by the moon and her phases, these monthly events can strengthen our connection to the cosmos thus restoring our connection to the Earth. After a meditation from the Kundalini tradition, you will lie on your yoga mat, draped in a warm blanket as the waves of sound wash over your body. As our bodies are over 60% water, the sound vibration begins to resonate throughout your body. This has a very healing effect on restoring and strengthening the parasympathetic nervous system as well as moving energy blocks within the body. This creates a flow within you and opens your mind, as your mind opens, limiting thoughts and beliefs in the subconscious mind are released, filling the mind with peace. This peace within you brings the body, mind and spirit into a state of homeostasis. The gong has been used in South Asia for thousands of years for healing. Mat Reservation is required as this event sells out monthly.
This four week series will incorporate Eastern and Western philosophies and techniques. This series will benefit those who are interested in beginning to mediate as well as seasoned mediators who wish enhance their current practice. We will explore various meditative approaches including pranayam(breath), visualization, mantras, mudras and movement. The techniques presented will allow participants to explore mediation in a supportive atmosphere as we demystify meditation and clear misconceptions surrounding meditation. Students will come away from this series with the tools to begin a personal practice of meditation to suit their individual needs for living a more mindful and authentic life.
