Monthly Women’s Gatherings
Jan 26 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Monthly Women's Gatherings @ Yoga Samadhi Studio

Abby invites you to join her for a Cacao Ceremony to open your heart and connect you to your womb. Space will be held for you to share what is calling from deep within and we will all hold space for one other to do the same.

There will be time to connect as well as time for silence for you to go within. We will traverse through a deep, guided meditation to reclaim our power as woman and journey to our wombs. Abby holds these circles with the intention for women to allow themselves to let go, connect and let spirit flow through them.

The birth of the Women’s Gatherings came from a craving to experience a deep, raw connection with other women, a craving for community, a craving for the power of the womb to be reclaimed and honored. It came from a craving for more ceremony, a craving to have sacred space to rest in and a craving to clear the personal and collective trauma of the womb and the divine feminine that we all share in some form or another.

There will be time to ground and connect with one another before leaving so we can deeply nourish a community that will nourish us all.

*** Limited space, registration required ***

A few words from Shaamaahs

What is sound meditation?  This phrase is very prominent these days, and most of us are simply curious on how sound meditation can help us achieve focus, and re-engage our “true self”.  If I were to point to a single phrase that encompasses the importance of sound in relation to the human psyche and personal well being … It would be this.

“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration”  -Nikola Tesla

We as humans are walking energy, vibrating at multiple frequencies.  If we’re to break this idea down into the esoteric realm of Chakra meditation …. It is important to note the seven major Chakras and the Universal OM have their own individual frequencies/notes.  The Chakras are intricate energy system that communicates with our bodies glandular functions.

http://www.chakras.info/chakras-glands/

The importance of developing the Pranic energy body connection with Chakra balancing involves initiating the subtle energy body via yoga and meditation. This can be accomplished with sound meditation to help focus working with the specific Chakras and developing our subtle energy bodies ability to “oscillate” with an external sound catalyst.  The presentation of this catalyst is the sound meditation that will be performed

The sound meditation I’ve developed uses esoteric “drone” instruments in a specific tuning that is relative to natural ratios that are seen within our physiology, sacred geometry, our solar system and ancient cultural paradigms. IE: Fibonacci, Phi, and Pythagorean theorem. This sound meditation I’ll present uses these natural ratios with matched octave singing bowls per each Chakra frequency, Kargyraa throat singing and a Shruti Box.  This is performed solo and in unison to create a oscillation catalyst that allows for a phenomenon called “Sympathetic Resonance”.  Each instrument used in this meditation when combined is something that when experienced is very unique and quite powerful at each progressive level of energy body development.

The goal of these sound meditations is to simply perform and provide a meditation that has the potential to relax, improve health, explore inwards and reach the true “teacher” within all of us.
