Gong Bath Meditation with Angela Blueskies

Register for this event under “workshops”

Of all the instruments used in sound healing, the Gong is perhaps the most powerful, and the most mysterious. Used in ancient Chinese palaces and temples, and also in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga, Gong Meditations, also called Gong Baths, are deeply nourishing and restorative.

Cultivating Your Spirituality: Engaging Mindfulness, Dream-Intuition & Intentionality

Presented by Mary Elizabeth Lynch & Mark Thurston

April 17, 2015 (6:00 – 9:00 pm)
April 18 and 19, 2015 (10:00 am – 5:00 pm)

This two-and-half-day workshop is a deep, personal exploration of methods of renewal, inspiration, and insight. In a highly experiential learning format, you will experience practical ways to “cultivate” the growth of your personal spirituality. Our three primary tools will be:

The expansion of your capacities for meditation and mindfulness. We will examine and practice half-a-dozen different, yet complementary, ways to nourish and support your spiritual development.
The study of your dreams and how they provide intuitive insights about daily challenges and opportunities. We will explore both analytical and creative ways to uncover the intuitive wisdom of your dream life – sources of practical insight that come to you every night.
The clarification and deepening of personal commitments to core values, ideals, and life-intentions. You will have the opportunity not only to see more deeply the essence of your personal spirituality, but also to rededicate yourself to those intentions.

This program is designed to help you: reconnect and feel more grounded in that which is the best in you, experience inspiration about the trajectory of your life, and receive some immediately-applicable insight and understanding of how to meet current life-challenges with the best that your own spirituality has to offer.
