Tea Ceremony with Kali Moon
Jul
28
3:30 PM15:30

Tea Ceremony with Kali Moon

In a world that often asks,
’How are you doing?’
Tea asks us,
’How are you being?’
— Kali Moon

Join us for a simple gathering of Tea Ceremony as we share bowls of silence together in community. A time of connection to the plant Spirit + plant teacher of Tea.

Cha Dao translates to the "Way of Tea". It is a practice that comes from ancient Chinese lineage that has been used by sages as a form of medicine and a way to cultivate awakened presence. Although traditional Tea Ceremony has roots in Daoist & Zen philosophy, it is non-dogmatic and available to all.

Tea Ceremony is about creating a space of reverence for the plant teacher, plant medicine, and plant spirit of Tea. When we show up for Tea, she shows up for us. As we open ourselves to her magic she begins to heal us on a multitude of levels. She is gentle, warm & inviting as she works with your Chi (energy) and unlocks the wisdom of your heart. Every sit with Tea is an opportunity for deep healing, deep connection and deep presence as she meets you exactly where are and gives you just what you need. It is a truly profound sensory exploration of the 5 elements. As the heat from the hot water unfurls and unlocks the wisdom of the Tea leaf, the steam rises letting go of all that needs to be released. The smell of the Tea leaves dance around you as you bring the medicine to your lips. The taste, like a healing river, flows into your body. You no longer know where Tea ends and you begin. Together as one, you connect, you heal and you remember. A practice of both personal ceremony and/or communal ritual that is much needed in our world today.

Sliding Scale Available $22/$33/$44

Sacred Honey Ceremony: An Invocation of Joy

Sacred Honey Ceremony: An Invocation of Joy

Join a special guest facilitator for Sacred Honey Ceremony!

When we work with the spirit of the sacred honey bee, and it’s medicine honey, we are calling on the sacred blessings of the honey bee kingdom. Honey itself, is so very sweet in taste. In this way, the medicine of sacred honey is about connecting with the sweetness in our lives and the beauty that already exists inside of us.

When we work with sacred honey we are reconnecting with the joy and beauty that is already present, but can easily be forgotten. The honey is a medicine that comes from the sun & the sacred fire. In this way, when we work with sacred honey we are connecting to the source of all light & reigniting our inner-flame of love.

In the space of the sacred honey ceremony we ask for guidance from the honey bee. We ask to be reminded of all of the beauty that exists in our lives & we are calling on the highest level of joy that we are able to experience.

We will also work with the plant spirit mother cedar, which is used as a vessel of connection with the creator. When we pray with mother cedar, the universe hears our intention clearly and directly. Cedar works closely with the spirit of the eagle to fly high and bring our prayers to the creator. With this medicine we work with the spirit of creation and setting intention. Come prepared with an intention of what you wish to create with this ceremony in your life.

Join herbal medicine practitioner and facilitator Jumana Risheq under the late Summer sun in a gathering space to explore, experience, and move to the rhythm of the season!

We will be exploring the elemental qualities that are brought alive in our bodies, minds and hearts in coherence with the world around us in late Summer: the season of the heart fire.

The medicine of aligning and harmonizing the rhythms of diet, lifestyle, movement, and herbal medicine to the rhythms of the natural world and its seasons is as ancient a practice and relationship as it is relevant.

The wisdom and science of Ayurvedic medicine will hold the container and guide our learning of foundational elemental theory, constitutional tendencies, and tools for harmonizing with the seasons. There will be spaces throughout our time together where we will be tasting and somatically experiencing the elements and tools offered through herbal medicine, diet therapy, and a guided yoga-barre-martial arts movement practice.

Clarity Breathwork

~ CEREMONY WITH BREATH ~

Join Chanel and Lailla for a 2.5 hour Clarity breathwork workshop where we will arrive, introduce the breath, drop into our bodies and move into the breath. You will be guided and supported through this practice of Clarity Breathwork, a circular breathing technique, one that powerfully and gently opens our hearts to a way of being and relating that inspires more love and freedom. It can also help with clearing physical and emotional stress from our bodies and support us in feeling our own well of healing energy.

Meet your facilitators:

Chanel’s spirit path began around ten years ago when she became curious and felt she needed to seek how to move through this life journey in a more open, surrendered and loving way. She found yoga and breathwork, which became a way of life as she started living with a deep embodied presence that shifted her way of being. Chanel believes that there is astounding power in the breath and it can be our greatest tool for transformation and presence. As a certified clarity breathwork practitioner, she feels deep gratitude to share and hold the container for the magic of the breath.

Lailla’s love for social behaviour and psychology sparked while studying social communications at university. Little did she know that it was the beginning of a much deeper journey. Travelling to over 25 countries she has deepened her studies of personal development, ancient traditions, Reiki, breathwork, access consciousness, yoga and shamanic practice. She received her yoga and breathwork training in Costa Rica and has become an access consciousness practitioner in Brazil and is actively practicing in Australia. She is passionate about the power of the breath and enthusiastic in continuing to shine light on this medicine.

Yoga for Astrology: Sun in Cancer

Join Kali Moon for 'Yoga for Astrology'. A series that will follow the sun through all 12 zodiac signs. Align your physical, mental and emotional body with the cosmic energy of the sun and the archetypal astrology of each zodiac sign. 

In the heat of the summer season, our femininity awakens with the watery and sensitive sign of Cancer, reminding us to come back to the heart and back to the mystery that is life unfolding before your very eyes. From June 21st (summer solstice) to July 22nd, the sun "shifts" its direction southward as the days start to shorten again. This season invites us to thoroughly FEEL the mid-summer nights sky as we are being invited to stay open and connected to all of life, a calling home to our intuition and the grace of the crackling fires, the cooling rivers, and tides of the ocean being pushed and pulled by the moon. 

With Cancer in the element of Water, we will activate the back body, the psyche, the mystery of the bladder and kidney channels as we embody the nurturing and loving qualities of Cancer to help us harness this potent and deeply healing energy. This will be a gentle, fluid, and nurturing practice designed for you to take home as a consistent ritual throughout the Cancer season. We will discuss the archetypes and qualities of Cancer as well as what we might expect in this season of the Sun! 

Space is limited to 7 people! Register early to save your spot!

Soul Steeping + Sound Healing

Yoni Steam + Tea Ceremony. Join us for an enticing and sensual experience of soul nurturance. Bathe in the gifts of a melodic Yoni steam and Tea Ceremony as you receive the healing elixir of plant medicines in an alchemy of the heart. Steep your Soul in a gentle & loving experience designed to cleanse, soften & extract the divine feminine harmony within. 

Each gathering includes discussion on the energetics of cycle awareness, herbal medicines and yoni steam, traditional tea ceremony, and a tarot reading. 

Yoni Steam: 

Our Yoni Steams are a vaginal steam bath done with ceremonial intent. Each participant brings their own bowl to use in ceremony and wears a long skirt/dress. We have hand-made chairs for you to place your bowl of herbs below and for you to sit comfortably on during your meditation and connection with your womb energy. Some may wish to hold a frog-like or child's pose instead to invite a yin-like yoga pose into their ritual. All herbs are safe to use and precautions/guidance is given at the beginning of each ceremony to help you choose herbs best suited for your stage of cycle, or not. We also encourage intuitive listening to the body's response to make your selection. 

Yoni steams can be beneficial for menstrual pain & PMS, fertility, PCOS and endometriosis, postpartum healing, irregular/missing menstrual cycles, trauma release and emotional clearing, ovarian cysts, hemorrhoids, urinary tract infections, yeast infections, stronger and more frequent orgasms, menopause transition, womb cleansing, increase libido and reignite sexual passion, and for deepening your connection to mother nature and feminine spirit. 

It is not advised to yoni steam during menstruation, pregnancy or with an IUD. 


Tea Ceremony: 

Tea Ceremony is about creating a space of reverence for the plant teacher, plant medicine, and plant spirit of Tea. When we show up for Tea, she shows up for us.  As we open ourselves to her magic she begins to heal us on a multitude of levels. She is gentle, warm & inviting as she works with your Chi (energy) and unlocks the wisdom of your heart. Every sit with Tea is an opportunity for deep healing, deep connection and deep presence as she meets you exactly where are and gives you just what you need. It is a truly profound sensory exploration of the 5 elements. As the heat from the hot water unfurls and unlocks the wisdom of the Tea leaf,  the steam rises letting go of all that needs to be released. The smell of the Tea leaves dance around you as you bring the medicine to your lips. The taste, like a healing river, flows into your body. You no longer know where Tea ends and you begin. Together as one, you connect, you heal and you remember.

Yoga + Cha Dao: Water Element

Join Kali Moon for a water-based Elemental Yoga session followed by bowls of meditative Tea.

Elemental Yoga is a meridian-based yoga practice that intentionally activates specific energy lines in the body to help one achieve desired mental, emotional and physical results. It is in an incredibly effective therapy and can be used to deepen one's relationship to their own inner nature. 

With solid ground beneath us, our rivers flow. Moving on from the Earth element to the Water element, we will further cultivate a deep and reverent relationship to our body, breath, and life itself. The Water element primarily works with the unconscious mind by activating that 'which is hidden', our back body, and the bladder and kidney meridians in Chinese Medicine. This class will serve as a time and space to tap into the unlimited potential of trust and peace that resides within you. Following the practice, we will sit with Tea in silent meditation. Allowing the leaf to further be our guide into our inner dimensions of self.

Cycle Awareness as a Path to Wholeness: The Practical Wisdom of Menstruality

Cycle Awareness as a Path to Wholeness: The Practical Wisdom of Menstruality

Cycle-Aware Women Series: Interactive women's circles to bring meaning to your menstrual cycle. 

Cycle-Aware Women is a two-part series of women's circles that promote a more open, supportive and cycle-smart world so women can reap the full benefits of their cyclical nature and live in sync with the wisdom of their bodies. These circles aim to break down the long-standing myths and stereotypes surrounding the menstrual cycle and provide more opportunities to share what women actually experience versus the damaging narrative that so many of us have been told.

Circle I 

Cycle Awareness as a Path to Wholeness: The Practical Wisdom of Menstruality

Spend an afternoon sipping tea and diving into the practice of menstrual cycle awareness, a unique feminine way of creating wellbeing, connecting to one’s purpose and developing personal power. 

Discover how this intrinsic practice provides a deep sense of peace and comfort as you learn self-awareness techniques to help you become more in sync with the way you are wired. 

The first circle of this series is about getting you rooted in the foundation of this practice, acquainted with the language of the cycle and using its energy dynamic as a practice for wellness, self-care and healing.

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THIS CIRCLE:

- Get familiar with the process of Menstruality and the psychospiritual journey that supports a woman from menarche to menopause

- Learn the basics of menstrual cycle awareness and how to achieve greater wellbeing from a female-model of care

- Navigate the basic energy dynamic of the cycle to create more balance and stress less

- See your life through four unique lenses at different times of the month and learn how to work in harmony with each phase to create more ease and efficiency

- Unravel the concept of 'power' in relation to the cycle and how to engage with it in our everyday lives, whether it be in the quiet solitude of our bedroom or an intense meeting in the boardroom

- Learn why laying the groundwork in this practice prepares you to experience the cycle's deeper layers.

- Discover how to track your own monthly rhythm and patterns, a recipe for deep restoration, internal organization and self-confirmation

- We will finish with a guided meditation to give insight into your relationship with your cycle and a discussion at the end.

Wondering if this if for you?

These circles are welcoming to all those who want to learn more about their own menstruality. Whether your cycle is regular, irregular, have no cycle at all, are perimenopausal, menopausal or postmenopausal. 

A word about those who no longer have a cycle from your facilitator: Although these circles focus on menstrual cycle awareness, I believe there is still something that can be reclaimed if one is looking to engage with cyclical consciousness and would like to recover aspects of their natural rhythm. This practice can be applied by using the lunar cycle rather than the menstrual cycle, although the experience of it will be, by nature, different. 

Marisa Mar is a Menstruality Educator and the creator of Women In Sync. She facilitates girls and women circles to raise awareness about the importance of menstrual wellness and how to connect to the cycle as a resource of evolving wisdom. A quest to unearth the concept of “menstrual power” and to know more about her personal cycle led her to an apprenticeship with Alexandra Pope, co-founder of Red School in the UK. It was during this time that she was able to explore the healing, creative and spiritual capacities of the cycle. She considers the process of menstruality to be one of the most enriching experiences a woman can know and is thrilled to be able to help others connect to their own. She holds certifications in registered massage therapy and holistic nutrition and participates in ongoing qigong instructor trainings. She was born and raised on Vancouver Island, is a mother of two young children and lives in Victoria, B.C.

Lucia Light Meditation Experience

Lucia Light Meditation Experience

Guided Meditation + Light with Ailey

Join us in a meditative experience deepened through the usage of the Lucia No.3 from the Sky Studio.

The Lucia No.3 is hypnagogic light machine that stimulates EEG brain wave patterns that usually only appear after a devoted meditation practice. Research has demonstrated that the Lucia No.3. allows you to experience altered state of consciousness.. This is due to white light passing through the retina stimulating the pineal gland. Those who meditate with the Lucia No.3 often speak of experiences of deep relaxation, meditative self awareness, feelings of well being, a renewed sense of energy, mystical experiences and sacred geometry.

Without substances or special exercises, simply close your eyes, lay back, let go and trust that the Lucia No.3 will do the rest...

During our ninety minutes together we will begin with brief sample of the Lucia No.3 before diving into a guided meditation followed by forty minutes of meditative surrender under the Lucia No.3. You will come back to this world feeling renewed and reconnected through a body-centered guided meditation.

In this one of a kind event in Victoria, you will experience.

1- An introduction to Meditation and brief guided practice (Ailey Jolie)

2- Lucia Light No.3 session (Tina Averback of Sky Studio Lucia)

There are two time slots you can register for – 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. & 3:00 - 4:30 p.m.

Women's Song Circle

"In the beginning there was sound. The first sound you heard was that of your mother’s heart beat, the rhythm of blood pumping through her veins, the sound of her voice.  Before you knew her to see her, you knew her as sound and feeling.  As a sentient being, every feeling your mother felt, you also felt.  From the moment you were conceived, the combination of your mother and father’s DNA carried with it cellular memory.  And so it goes, we are not just us, we are our ancestors."

Join us for a sacred gathering at Medicine NEST as we gather in sisterhood, in circle and in song. With the intention of healing centuries of restricted expression now together in the right space to discover the power of our voices and the freedom of being fully self-expressed!

Psychosomatic Tension Release (Day 2)

Psychosomatic Tension Release (Day 2)

PSYCHOSOMATIC TENSION RELEASE with Reko

Psychosomatic tension refers to patterns of tension that are rooted in psychological responses to the environment. Most often they begin developing in the first months or years of our lives when as children we have very little influence on our surroundings.

The exercises we will be doing in this event will focus on gently opening and unwinding the physical tension, while staying present to the experiences that arise from them. There will be some group and partner exercises however partners will be chosen upon arrival so you don't need to bring one. Eye contact, light movements, postures, and breath will help us to go into the tension with awareness.

This series is divided into two events. The first is going to focus on the the tension developed primarily in the womb, and first 18 months of life. We will be doing more in relation to the eyes, mouth, and the balance dynamic between the right and left hemisphere of the body.

The second event will move deeper into the body, activating the core, diaphragm, pelvis and legs, which connects more with the development in the first 7 years of life. Each section of the body is connected with and stores certain emotional events and psychological stages, as well as developmental needs. By creating two events we can meet the needs of each part more effectively.

Cost: $35 each or $60 for both

Yoga for Astrology: Sun in Gemini

Join Kali Moon for 'Yoga for Astrology'. A series that will follow the sun through all 12 zodiac signs. Align your physical, mental and emotional body with the cosmic energy of the sun and the archetypal astrology of each zodiac sign. 

Insatiable for knowledge and wildly curious, Gemini season is sure to bring in a change of pace! From May 22-June 21st, the days start to feel longer and the adventures start to pick up. You will be urged to explore, both within your mind and in the outside world. Connection and communication are at all time high, so grab a friend and go somewhere new! (A yoga for astrology class, perhaps!). Gemini's are notorious for not being able to make up their mind and wanting to do all of the things, all at once. So moving the body, meditation and breath are key to harnessing the potency behind this restless season. 

With Gemini in the element of Air, we will activate the lungs and large intestine channels as we embody the free-roaming qualities of Gemini to help us harness this quick-witted, sociable, and versatile energy. This will be a swift practice designed for you to take home as consistent ritual throughout the Gemini season. We will discuss the archetypes and qualities of Gemini as well as what we might expect in this season of the Sun! 

Space is limited to 7 people! Register early to save your spot! $44/person

The Nature of Karma & The Pulse of Life

THE NATURE OF KARMA & THE PULSE OF LIFE

Exploring the Koshas to Discover the Root & Path to Transcending Patterns, Followed by Ajapa Japa Dharana Meditation

We all have areas in our lives we would like to improve upon, but there always seems to be something that holding us back or tripping us up. Whether it be challenging relationships, personal health issues, or other blockages in moving forward, it is actually our own patterns, our repeated self-sabotage, that ultimately prevents us from connecting with the deepest part of ourselves where we are whole and complete, and able to be our best version of ourselves.

Join Shivani Howe in this 2.5-hour theory-based workshop where we will look at the Koshas, or layers of our own embodiment, as being the origin from where our experiences cascade into being as perceptions of karmic patterns that manifest first from archetype, to mind, to emotion, and finally as our physical experience or reality. Using basic chakra psychology, we will trace our own patterns from our physical experience back to its root archetype. Lastly, we will identify which Yogic tools, such as asana, pranayama and meditation, we may use to better understand and assist in our own personal healing.

To close the workshop, we will go even deeper into our yogic experience with an Ajapa Japa meditation. Ajapa Japa is a practice of Dharana, or concentration, and is also a key practice in preparing the mind and body for Dhyana, or true meditation. It enables one to tap into the pulse of prana, or life force energy, to refine the nervous system and strengthen the mind, thus preparing the body for Kriyas and the awakening of Ma Kundalini.

A SACRED GATHERING OF CEREMONY,  MOVEMENT & SISTERHOOD.

Did you know that your life is one giant piece of art? The way you dress, the way you live, the way you do, and the way you be? Libra does. And in Taurus season, we are being asked to slow down, to find the sacred within the mundane, and to check in with our deeper values. What happens under a waxing moon in Libra with a Taurus sun? You will be given an opportunity to create balance and harmony amongst the areas of your life that are most important to you. Perhaps, you need to revisit what your values are? Not to worry, the upcoming full moon in Scorpio will certainly show you the emotional depths of any area of your life needing your attention. So, how do we prepare for the queen of death and transformation to meet the most valuable areas of our lives? First of all, we breathe and get out of life's way. Secondly, we remember that life is art. And art is sometimes messy, sometimes destructible, and always, beautiful. Let the waxing moon in Libra guide you in the masterpiece that is your life.

We will honor the reflection of the Taurus sun while finding a moment of stillness for all chaos within to be released in tea ceremony. A time of connection to the plant Spirit + plant teacher of Tea. 

Join us, in sisterhood, for moon medicine, lunar yoga, tea ceremony, and sharing in circle.  

You will leave this circle in complete and total alignment for the full moon energy of Scorpio set to take the stage on Saturday, May 18 at 2:11 PM.
