The great thing about intuition is that we all have it. We may have lost touch with it or forgotten how to tune in and listen, but it is always within us waiting to be accessed. We will guide you to reconnect to this innate source of healing and guidance. In our world of abundant information, rather than looking outside of oneself for instruction — a loop that’s confusing, complex, and disconnected from self — learn how to reconnect and trust the wisdom within.

CRYSTAL GUIDED MEDITATION
Crystals vibrate a specific frequencies, which correlate with the seven energetic centers, or chakras, of our bodies. We will match the stones with the energy centers on the body, and spend some time focusing on the healing powers each stone has with each energetic center from Root to Crown. The session will begin with handling and understanding the crystals and their meanings, followed by a seated meditation with a stone of your choosing. Every day your body is shifting energetically and sometimes certain crystals will resonate with you more than others. Each session is an opportunity to explore, align, and refine the subtle body and heal stuck energies. In each class, we will practice a variety of mindfulness practices from mantra (chanting) to pranayama (breath work) and visualization techniques.
Experiences are longer than our 45 minute meditation classes. Guests lay on luxury throwbeds, snuggled under warm blankets and can opt for lavender scented eye pillows to facilitate going within. Often times more than one guide is facilitating the experience. Please note the rate for experiences is $35, and are not included in class packages, with the exception of monthly members.
SOUND + REIKI
2 teachers will co-create a space bringing sounds of the gong, crystal and alchemy singing bowls, drums, chimes, and singing, to the ears hearts and bodies of all attending. A safe and nurturing environment is established for individuals to tune into their inner wisdom to access higher levels of consciousness and realign with their true hearts desires.
We will lie back and slowly enter into a deeply relaxing state, letting the sound-energy cut through our pain, patterns, and attachments, while the vibrations enter the core of our cells. These high frequencies can change vibratory patterns to the deepest level of our being, “resetting” our system to a balanced state by bringing coherence back to the core of our cells.
In addition to the sound immersion, by acting as a conduit for reiki, Becca will invoke sacred symbols and channel the universal life force energy, we will receive the reiki frequencies to assist in enhancing the radiance of one’s aura, clearing, harmonizing and activating the chakras, stimulating the senses and restoring balance.
A fantastic night of sleep usually follows!!
