Moon Medicine

In astrological terms, a full Moon occurs when the Sun is in opposition to the Moon, which means the Sun is straight across from the Moon with the Earth in between. Because the Moon reflects light from the Sun, this creates the visual effect of a full Moon from our vantage. Conversely, the new Moon lies in between the Sun and Moon and cannot reflect light to us. As such, the Moon is not able to be seen by us at all. It is said to be in full shadow. As the Moon goes through its phases, it increases in light. Once we make it to the full Moon, the shadows are no more and the Moon’s luminosity shines down, an invitation to become aware of what is occurring.
 
In Vedic astrology the moon is considered to be a main factor of the mind. According to astrologers, the human mind is either distracted or stable due to the influence of the moon. An invitation to land in ancient wisdom from both Yoga and Ayurveda. Incorporating different practices and techniques to help heal the modifications of the mind, restore the physical and energetic bodies and find peace within each cycle.

New Earth Energy Healing Practices

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, humanity began it’s movement into the Age of Aquarius and the edge of our solar system entered what has been called the photon belt or galactic sheet. This prompted a shift and awakening in human consciousness and has often been referred to as time of the arrival of the Indigo, Crystalline and Rainbow children. These new archetypes were used to describe these changes observed from educators, parents, psychologists and energy workers as these waves of new attributes and behaviors appeared.

 

  • Is the way you see the world shifting & changing?
  • Do you have an expanded sense of empathy?
  • Are you curious about arrival of new consciousness on the earth?
  • Have you noticed new characteristics & ways of being in yourself? Others? Children? Animals?
  • How can we re-imagine new applications for learning, living and community?

 

Each of these workshops will include new research, self discovery, meditation and energy practices, discussion & re-imagining

 

**This is a new archetype to describe new energies or qualities that all of us have the capacity to awaken at this time.

Ayurveda Fall Community Cleanse

Ayurvedic Fall Community Cleanse

Join us for a 10 day program for purification and rejuvenation of the mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda teaches that seasonal changeovers are the ideal time to cleanse, as your body is already in a transitional mode during those times. Early spring and early autumn are traditionally regarded as key times for purification practices. This is a time for deep rejuvenation, to observe habits that are working and those that are no longer supportive. To cleanse not only our bodies but also our minds, energy and sacred spaces. Fall is the time to release summer heat, inflammation and reset the gut for the winter months. An Ayurvedic cleanse can restores a sense of calm to the mind and the nervous system, nurtures an improved sense of energy and vitality, supports sound sleep and helps to reestablish one’s natural state of balance.

The details:

You will be provided with a detailed shopping list along with pre cleanse, main cleanse and post cleanse recipes. You will also receive at home remedies, self care practices, yoga and mindfulness techniques.
