Sacred Honey Bee Ceremony

6:00 PM18:00

Sacred Honey Bee Ceremony

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.

Loving contribution: $88 dollars + tax

$44 first-time offer.

Clarity Breathwork

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.

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.

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

1:00 PM13:00

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
Jun

1:00 PM13:00

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.

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

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.

Yoga for Astrology: Sun in Aries

Join Kali Moon for 'Yoga for Astrology', a new series of offerings! From March 20-April 20, the sun is in Aries. What does this mean for you? Well, as many of you already know... we ARE the cosmos! Which is why astrology has been used for centuries as a science for understanding everything and anything from our planetary shifts and collective evolutions all the way down to the minuscule happenings of our daily lives. 

Whether we are aligning with the sun, the moon, the stars, the trees or the oceans, the practice of yoga and breath awareness can be used to clear the channels of the mind an body, thus allowing the universal energy to flow through! 

With Aries in the element of Fire, we will activate the heart and small intestine channels  to ignite the fire within our own alchemical chambers (body) and embody the qualities of the inner warrior/warrioress! This will be a simple practice designed for you to take home as a steady ritual throughout the Aries season! We will discuss the archetypes and qualities of Aries as well as what we might be expect in this season of the Sun! 

Space is limited to 7 people! Register early to save your spot! $25/person

The Essence of Surya Namaskara

The Essence of Surya Namaskara: 

Salutations to Aditya (The Sun God)


This important Yogic practice dates back to the ancient Vedic period when the Sun was worshipped as a powerful symbol of spiritual consciousness. From these origins, we will practice 4 different Surya Namaskaras, including Surya and bija mantras. We look to the heavens for inspiration, but also need the earth for balance and stability.

The asana portion will be a light vinyasa style Prana Vashya sequence, then we will learn to chant a paragraph of the Surya Upanishad. Chanting in Sanskrit will energize our knowledge and clarity. Sound has vibration : it elevates your level of awareness, reduces anxiety and calms the mind.

Cost: $44/person 
Spaces are limited.

Taught by Dev Hari 

"Yoga has not always come easily for me. My path has not been linear, forward moving, or painless. But it has been totally joyful and embracing. It has taught me how to become focused, how to work through the difficulties of my life, and how to welcome change. I have followed the path of Kundalini Yoga (Yogi Bhajan) but my heart is really consumed with Ashtanga yoga. And this lineage lead me to India where I have studied with Sharath Jois at the K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute, as well as with various Indian teachers. I have travelled to India twice and immersed there for 5 months now and can’t wait to return. I learned pranayama from Acharya Vinay Kumar and will continue to be a student of his. Chanting the Vedas and Upanishads with Vigneshwar Bhat, is something I can’t wait to share with this community. Mantra has its own place in yogic practices. And really, these practices provide layers in our own yogic adventure."

Manifest Your Purpose

In this workshop we will be working with the art of projection. How can we call upon ourselves to unfold, so that we may live our purpose? The answer is sound! Will use Mantra, meaning mental waves. We will change our frequency, so that is it in alignment with our true nature. We will lean into courage, let go fear, and relax our perceived control. When we have tools to increase our personal radiance, nothing can stop us from manifesting the life we have always desired. Your purpose is always with you, it may just be stuck in contracted habitual thinking. Dust yourself off and shine! Let yourself shine.

Step Into Your Destiny

In this workshop, we will identify key elements required to step into your destiny. We will use yogic tools to push the boundaries of the mind. We will rewrite neural pathways in the brain in order to free us from the habitual thinking that keeps us stuck in our lives. We will identify our own personal ceilings. Before we can raise the roof on what is possible, we must be willing to see the limits we are putting on ourselves. Lean into your personal calling to expand yourself. Your intuition and your relationship to the unknown is waiting for you. We can’t even imagine what is possible when we let go and step fully into our lives. Sat Nam.
