Ceremonial Cacao: Open Your Heart

ATHENS FRIENDS! Join Becky Shanks, Presents of Mind Hypnosis and Jeffrey Lester at Let It Be Yoga for Sacred Cacao ♥

Ancient Mesoamerican cultures honored and held deeply intimate relationships with Earth's medicinal plants. In Shamanic tradition, Cacao is a power plant that gently opens hearts to the experience of Love. Mother Cacao creates widows and portals to plumb unprecedented depths of the emotional body.

As we move through the ceremony, attune to the subtle pulse of the Collective Heart with the sacred, healing frequencies of mantra and music. As our vibrations gently rise, the body-mind enters the optimal state for healing, and Becky's crystal singing alchemy bowls link physical and energetic hearts to the High, Galactic Heart.

Crystal singing bowls naturally shift energetic and emotional blockages, encourage deep relaxation, and expand conscious awareness. Allow their angelic voices paired with Sacred Cacao to harmonize, purify, and rejuvenate your entire Being. Wear comfy clothes, and come prepared to fully relax. Please bring a journal, a pen, a friend, crystals and any other sacred items you'd like to place on the altar.

$35 exchange. Please register in advance so we can appropriately portion the cacao

Yoga Nidra + Sound Alchemy

Yoga Nidra + Sound Alchemy

Yoga Nidra or “yogic sleep” is a practice of deep healing and regeneration for the body on all levels. It is said that just 45-minutes in a state of yoga nidra is equivalent to 4 hours of deep sleep! In addition to restfulness, yoga nidra accesses and deeply cleanses us at an unconscious level where our deepest patterns or "vasanas" lie. Crystal singing bowls foster alpha and theta brainwave states, induce the relaxation response, expand awareness, and dissolve subconscious resistance. Effortlessly cultivate the fertile soil of mind: pluck weeds, plant seeds, nurture and empower new growth with the light of attention and intention.

Jeff Lester is a student and teacher of yoga and any practice that expands the human experience. Having trained and taught all over the world in disciplines ranging from vinyasa and yin yoga to shamanic ceremonial traditions, Jeff has assimilated a catalogue of beautiful practices and techniques that bring people together with high vibes and harmony. It is his pleasure and joy to share with you the things that light up his world!

Wild Woman New Moon Circle

wildheartmoonpresentsofmind.jpg

Join us for an afternoon of reclaiming our innate Earth and Spirit based wisdom,. Guided by Tina Kite and Irene Turner, certified Wild Women Project Circle Leaders, the circles are beautifully sensuous experiences in sisterhood and sacred space. Through re-establishing our connection to the cycles of the moon, rhythms of nature and inner knowing, we awaken and enliven the wild, wise woman within. Around this Leo New Moon, we turn inward to explore the dark phase, then set intentions with guided meditation/visualization, sharing, journaling and ritual.

The circles are an inclusive coming together of feminine souls from all paths. We gather around the ideas of: sisterhood, respect for the earth, the sacred feminine and co-creation.

Nourishing food and drinks will be provided.

Please wear comfortable clothing, bring an open heart, a journal and an item to charge on the alter (you will take this item back with you at the end of the gathering).

The address will be provided via email upon registration. Contact Wild Heart New Moon Circles through FB Messenger for details and questions.

This circle is part of an international network of circles via The Wild Woman Project. https://thewildwomanproject.com

***************************************************************************************************
The Call of Water
An installation of Barron's photography of women in water along the creek walk. Barron’s images explore the age-old universal theme of man in nature. She quotes, “I believe we all learn from nature especially water, the source of life itself.” Nature helps you understand yourself, as it highlights qualities that coincide with your existence.

In creating these narrative themes, Roses’s images of the female in water explore themes of dreams, emotions, fears and memory. The work stems from the way she responds to the spaces, settings and environment — how she perceives the energy in spaces and their surroundings. Through the imagery generated, Barron explores personal identity, as well as relationships to the places near and far.
