Sonic Meditation: Follow Your Heart

$15 - Space is limited. Tickets are available only online.

In this Sonic Meditation with 4 different healing frequencies of Solfeggio Harmonics, Schumann Resonance and pure tones, 

Space is limited. Tickets are available only online.

Join Ian Morris (Wake Magazine) & Venecia Running Wolf for very special Guided Meditations accompanied by Sound Healing (Sonic) ancient tones that are said to be the basis of the universe.

Sound Healing is the conscious use of energy / frequency of sound in order to facilitate change and healing in the human system as well as the evolution of consciousness. 

Sound therapy is based on the premise that matter vibrates to a specific frequency, and those frequencies have a great impact on creating change in that matter. Even greater than that, when we tune into resonant frequencies, sound can actually change consciousness. This, in turn, helps to open us up to much greater potential in all facets of our lives.

Tones we will work with in this meditation.

1.The "Chakra Alignment" begins by clearing and balancing your Root Chakra, then moves up though each consecutive chakra up through the Crown. It then blends the entire Master Solfeggio scale to complete the full-spectrum alignment. 

2.Sending Love to Gaia (528 Hz) 

3.The I AM Presence (528hz)

4.I am higher / I am lower(639hz)

Beginner's Knitting Class with Catalina Keller

This 2-hour class is for absolute beginners, but is also great for anyone who needs a refresher course. We will be covering the long-tail cast-on method, the knit stitch, and a very simple bind-off. The timing of this also makes a great gift! 

There are two price options: one with materials ($35) and one without ($25). If you want to buy your own, I can guide you as to what you're looking for. I highly suggest this option as you get to pick your favorite color and it gets you learning how to pick yarn for your future projects. (Your yarn addiction begins here.) However, if you'd like me to bring some new needles and yarn for you, make sure you add the fee onto your order. 

Class size is limited to 10, so get your space reserved early. This tends to be a very popular class. 

Classes must be paid for prior to the event. There are three ways to pay for the class: 

1) Follow this link to Eventbrite. There you will see options for the class and the materials fee (if you need it). There are fees attached to this, but they are pretty low.

2) You can send payment for either $25 or $35 (depending on if you need materials) through Paypal to klystrona (at) gmail (dot) com. 

3) I can take your payment information over the phone. Send me a private message and we can arrange that pretty easily. 

If you have any questions whatsoever, please send me a message. I'm looking forward to sharing this skill with all of you! -Catalina

From there, we will move to Loft 201 at 701 Whaley.

Then, the group will get to enjoy the meal together, family style. What could be more delicious than that?!

We want to show you that diets and nutrition don't have to be intimidating, bland, or restrictive. Feeding your body and soul at the cellular level sounds scientific, but it's actually quite a tasty adventure. We can't wait to give you the tools you need to know how to shop for your individual dietary needs and those of your family, then prepare meals at your own home table.
