Jeffrey Chand, Qigong for vitality
Sunday 10:30 to 11:30
Qi Gong is an ancient exercise that helps stimulate the body to heal and the mind to become clear and calm. While Qi Gong can be practiced in a purely physical way, it can also help us connect with our own "inner voice," our environment, and all living beings around us.
Join Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncturist Jeffrey Chand for a simple, light hearted Qi Gong practice. He will teach an easy routine with 5 classic Qi Gong exercises that will help you feel grounded, relaxed, and it may even make you smile!
The Nature of Sound
Astaria Light, Light of Sound
Saturday 1:00 to 2:00
Sound, as a self-empowering healing modality, assists us in returning to our heart and bringing all aspects of our being into harmony. Pure frequencies vitalize our cells and remind us of our highest truth and wholeness.
Sit or lay down, supported by our Goddess Earth, and allow yourself to completely relax into the sonic soundscape woven by Astaria Light. She will lead you on a journey into your self, using various instruments and vibrational sound tools such as crystal bowls, medicine drums, vocal channeling, flute, chimes and more. Attend this sound meditation to elevate your vibration, expand your consciousness, and awaken your awareness.

THE SHAMANIC JOURNEY
Inside of us all resides our own inner knowing. The practice of shamanic journeying is over forty thousand years old and one of, if not, the first organized form of healing. To 'go on a journey' ...to ride the sound-wave of the sacred drum, is an earth-based, core practice that is still used around the world today. Journeying is a mindful way to shift your consciousness, to access your inner guidance and soul teachings. One can practice shamanic journeying as a spiritual practice for every day living. It also brings deep relaxation, peace and calmness to one’s life.
We will open and create safe, sacred space with drum, song and chant... I am honoured to sound the healing big drum 'laughing wolf', on your behalf, who will awaken your own wisdom-teacher.
