Pins and Premonitions

For centuries, scientists, philosophers, and mystics have studied the brain in great depths searching for the cause of our intuition. And while the debate remains, there is one thing that they all agree on and it's that if there are any answers contained within the brain, the greatest clue likely resides in the mystery and mysticism of the pineal gland.

This tiny pea-sized gland, located in the center of the brain has been at the center of our attention for years. And while we've determined that it is responsible for regulating biological rhythms such as time, sleep, sexual maturation, and stress, perhaps its most intriguing qualities are those that allow us to access higher states of consciousness and alternate realities. Though many people are turning to medicinal supports such as ayahuasca and other psychotropic drugs, there is another well-established, thousands of years old, practice that doesn't require such things. Opening the pineal gland with acupuncture pins at specific moments during deep meditation has been shown to generate similar results. Many participants leave the experience with feelings of transcendence, oneness, and unconditional love.

Join Vedic Master, Mandy Trapp and Acupuncturist Tamara Gervais for this enlightening experience that will open you to new your greatest intuitive abilities where YOU become the creator, healer, and master of your life.

Cost: $45

Expanding into Joy with Maryam Hasnaa

Inner child work is a vital aspect of doing the inner soul work because it reconnects us with a forgotten aspect of ourselves. When we reconnect with this fragmented part of ourselves, we can begin to discover the root of many of our fears, phobias, insecurities and life patterns. Imprints from the past feel real when they get triggered and we believe they are happening in present time. A vital strategy is recognizing the childhood imprint, identifying our typical emotional reaction and clearing this on the mind-body level. One of the most important strategies I teach people is learning how to recognize when you are in an imprint from the past. You learn how to spot a perceived threat and to respond rather than react. Through this work you will see that you no longer need to keep repeating painful, difficult, or traumatic imprints. This workshop will be supported through the use of plant allies.

Cost: $85

Amy is a qualified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) instructor through University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness.

She came to mindfulness meditation in 2006 seeking tools to assist with her health and well being.  Long hours at the computer and self-imposed demands of being a perfectionist were taking their toll. Amy was dealing with chronic low back pain from an assault in college, insomnia, hypothyroidism (her thyroid gave out from work stress which resulted in her gaining over 30 pounds within 3 months) and the final straw, chronic neck and arm pain.

Amy dabbled with meditation in her 20s to help with sleep issues, but MBSR was different.  The formal course gave her the means necessary to build a long term, sustainable mindfulness practice.  She has experienced first hand the benefits of increased coping mechanisms, decreased pain, and a more positive outlook on life.  She is proof meditation works!

Amy feels she is truly utilizing her Master’s in Public Health, decades later, by sharing the gift of mindfulness with others.

Full Moon Shamanic Journey with Sand Symes

Sand will lead us to the realms where ancestors and spirit await us with their healing and guidance to share. We spend the majority of our waking lives interacting with the world around us, often forgetting the other realm of non-ordinary reality of which we are apart. A powerful opportunity awaits us when we journey deep within ourselves and out beyond the ordinary, where we can encounter spirit and ancestors waiting to share their love, wisdom, and guidance. Sand creates a safe and sacred space in which we can journey, with purpose and intention, to find the support that we most need in this moment of our lives. This unique experience fuses shamanic tradition and practices with mindfulness and sacred touch, aided by carefully curated songs and rhythm, all designed to serve our highest good and lead us towards remembering the truth of who we are.

Some participants return from this journey with clear accounts of experiences from way beyond their normal range of consciousness, others have less conscious recall but report a sense of greater peace or comfort with the choices they are facing. This is an experience not to be missed.

Cacao New Moon Medicine Journey
Oct

Cacao New Moon Medicine Journey

A journey of inner reconnection, healing and wholeness
Cacao medicine journeys are a deeply somatic, dreamlike experience that connect mind-body-spirit-soul, while facilitating an inner sense of calm and renewal, clarity, and inner reconnection.

This beautiful practice honors shamanic tradition and wisdom by calling in the life force energies of the Directions and Elements, Spirit Animals, Star Beings and Ancestors for guidance. After you drink the cacao, which is pure ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, hand selected and blessed by a shaman for its energetic properties, and sweetened with honey and spices, you call in an intention and then deepen into the experience through guided visual meditation, shamanic drumming, Reiki healing and sacred music. Sharing with the group post ceremony, deepens that connection and creates a sense of relationship and community.

This gentle healing journey

  • inspires creativity and improves mental clarity

  • supports inner healing and clears emotional blocks

  • allows access to inner guidance and wisdom

  • facilitates a sense of wholeness and oneness.

How to prepare for ceremony: For optimal effect of the cacao, it's best to fast for 3 hours before and partake lightly of caffeine and dairy for the day. Hydrating with water, before, during and after ceremony, and drinking electrolytes, is advised as cacao is a mild diuretic and detoxifier.

Medication contraindicators: Cacao is not recommended for people who are taking heart medication or anti-depressants. If you are taking one of these medications, you are welcome to join us in ceremony without cacao or have a smaller serving.

What we’ll be drinking: A warm cacao elixir of raw ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, blended with cardamom, ginger, a hint of chile pepper and raw honey (if you are vegan and would prefer another sweetener, please let Nicole know).

What to bring: For your journey, bring a yoga mat and blanket to create a cacao cocoon as we lie on the ground for part of ceremony, a bottle of water, and a journal and pen. If you’d like to bring a crystal or mala or other sacred object to have with you or place on the altar, please do.

Intention for ceremony: You may wish to take a moment to reflect on your intention for ceremony It could be a desire for clarity or guidance in your work, life or relationship; inner reconnection and healing; deeper connection with Spirit or your ancestors; or simply ask Mama Cacao for the medicine you most need in this moment. Opening, allowing and receiving are all you need to do….

Cost: $55

Gateless Writing Salon: Harness your creative passion to cultivate meaning, fulfilment and confidence

Gateless Writing Salon: Harness your creative passion to cultivate meaning, fulfilment and confidence

With Emily Pereira

Author of the much-anticipated memoir, The Quest: from the Hollywood Hills to the Amazon Jungle one woman’s search for enough, Emily offers a pop-up salon (modeled after Hemingway and Stein’s rich gatherings in Paris), that transforms attendees into co-creators of the event.

Are you looking to experience heightened inspiration and creativity in your life? Do you want to be enlivened by your innate passion? Often only one thing stands in an your way: Critique. Cutting edge studies done at Stanford and Johns Hopkins University show that critique--which has become the cornerstone of corporations, educational systems and academia--actually kills creativity, memory recall and imagination. The reticular activating system in the brain amplifies whatever gets attention, or in other words, what we focus to grows. The Gateless method only acknowledges what has power and energy in the work, this process effectively silences your inner critic, allowing true creative genius to shine through, while what isn’t as strong gently falls away.

A Gateless Writing salon is a two-hour writing experience that starts with deep, guided meditation to activate creative and intuitive centers in the brain before moving onto the page. The process works for writers and non-writers alike and provides incredible transformation in a short amount of time. Not only has this process been proven to activate the pleasure centers of the brain and connect participants to their innate creative passion and to each other, but studies show it also lowers blood pressure, strengthens the immune system, improves liver and lung function, lessens the symptoms of PTSD, lowers stress levels and improves depressive symptoms. The numerous benefits gained during the workshop translate to all areas of the attendee’s life.

Audience Takeaways:

  • Acquire the #1 shift in perspective to overcome fear of personal expression.

  • Access your innate Creative Genius (even if you don’t think you’re creative) and find a wellspring of passion living inside of you!

  • Discover a proven method for creating abundance in all areas of your life.

Cacao, the main ingredient in chocolate, is a plant medicine that nourishes the heart. It is a great facilitator to go within and unlock our heart space, awaken our senses and creativity, and do our inner healing work.

A cacao ceremony is a sacred space for full presence and nourishment. It's a beautiful gift to ourselves to take time for this mindful space to amplify the expression of our intentions and transformation with the guidance of cacao.

Benefits of ceremonial cacao:

  • Opens the heart space (heart chakra & heart medicine)

  • Access to higher energies - love, joy, connection

  • Offers greater perspective on situations in our life to facilitate doing the inner work - moving through limiting beliefs, fears, blocks, suppressed emotions and trauma

  • Heightens emotional awareness and release

  • Relaxation, clarity, and inspiration

  • A great meditation guide towards our true Self and empowerment

  • Deepens connection to ourselves and others - enhances our ability to approach others with an open heart and facilitates relationship healing (personal and business)


In this cacao ceremony, we will enjoy a warm ceremonial cacao beverage while Giovanna shares about the health benefits and lineage of cacao, sacred songs, drum & sound journey, and a relaxing guided meditation/visualization to connect deeper with our hearts.

Full Moon Shamanic Journey

Sand will lead us to the realms where ancestors and spirit await us with their healing and guidance to share. We spend the majority of our waking lives interacting with the world around us, often forgetting the other realm of non-ordinary reality of which we are a part. A powerful opportunity awaits us when we journey deep within ourselves and out beyond the ordinary, where we can encounter spirit and ancestors waiting to share their love, wisdom and guidance. Sand creates a safe and sacred space in which we can journey, with purpose and intention, to find the support that we most need in this moment of our lives. This unique experience fuses shamanic tradition and practices with mindfulness and sacred touch, aided by carefully curated songs and rhythm, all designed to serve our highest good and lead us towards remembering the truth of who we are.

Some participants return from this journey with clear accounts of experiences from way beyond their normal range of consciousness, others have less conscious recall but report a sense of greater peace or comfort with the choices they are facing. This is an experience not to be missed.

Monthly Astro Forecast with Paula Pavlova

Please join Paula for a Monthly Astro Forecast + Sound to guide us through the upcoming need-to-know astrological dates and their significance from full moons, new moon, and retrogades, to major planetary transits. In general, Astrology serves as a a tool for self awareness in all parts of our lives while meditation facilitates a safe space to just be with ourselves, compassionately, regardless of how we feel in any given moment which allows us to befriend ourselves and heal in all kinds of ways. Together these two tools can be very powerful in terms of manifestation and personal transformation. Astro Forecast + Sound is monthly workshop, designed to integrate these two practices to help us align ourselves with the Universe in our own unique way. We do this by paying attention to major astrological dates in the upcoming month, meditating on them, and setting intentions for each of them in the present moment, even though they are weeks ahead. By doing this we are preparing the body to begin this process and be more seamless in the actions we take moving forward. We also look to the lunar cycle in relationship to the constant turning of all the planets and constellations because they are consistently informing us of the energies at play. Think this Friday night workshop as monthly reminder to prioritize yourself and feel into the astrolocial guidance ahead so that you can be prepared with intentions that will help you live more firmly in the present as it all folds. All in all, this Monthly Astro Forecast is an opportunity for a Self check in to acknowledge, accept, allow whatever feelings are coming up for you as a powerful catalyst for healing and growth as you continue to grow through life. Each session will end with a Crystal Tones Sound Bath to soak in our intentions and the energy we’ve cultivated in the space through pure and soft vibrations that send the body into a state of deep relaxation.
