BodyShiftwith live sound A guided workshop exploring, connecting and listening to what your body is saying.
Long held emotional patterns can be stored in different areas of the body and you will gain an understanding of why certain areas of the body are resistant to healing. This will be a beautiful, gentle approach using sound and movement to tap into your body’s innate wisdom and how it responds to emotions in the physical. Sensing where we hold onto our emotions and where this presents in the body. We will bring you into a state to receive the healing vibrations of sound that will meet you on a cellular level. Through a practice of gentle movement and sound we can shift the energy in the body, creating vitality and clarity, bringing the body and mind into coherence. You will leave feeling lighter in body and spirit, with knowledge and understanding of how the emotional stress and strain of our life can present itself in our physical body.
Outline - Energy clearing (smudging) to bring you into the space. - Discussion on the energetic body and how emotions are stored. - Breath work (pranayama) to bring you into your parasympathetic nervous system, rest and digest. - Gentle limbering with body narrative led by the drum. - Blindfolded exploration of your physical body through movement. - Setting intention prior to relaxation with live sound. - Tea & Sharing.
Instruments you will experience will be medicine drum, African drum, didgeridoo, rattles, shakers, Native American flute and crystal bowls.
Reiki First Level - with Peter Bajic & Connie Leimbach
"Reiki is a natural form of complimentary therapy for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes wellness. It is administered by 'laying on hands.' Life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, we are more likely to become ill or feel stressed, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy."
Our Reiki Level 1 is a full day course in which you will be attuned to the universal energy of reiki, learn its history, and given tools and information on how to use reiki on yourself, family, friends, clients and even your pets. Peter & Connie provide a beautiful balance of Yin & Yang as they share their knowledge and experience of working with reiki, energy and vibration.
Reiki can be used as a stand alone practice or an addition to massage, yoga, aromatherapy and other wellness therapies.
