RAIN DATE - TBA if we get rained out a new date will be scheduled, and participants will be notified.
In this session, we will start by journeying into the world of the fae at Shieling Forest in Peterborough, NH, and we will end at MacDowell Dam for an open-air Moonlit meditation.
This session is moderately active as we will be walking through the forest for half the day while we make friends with faeries and communicate with the trees. For more information about Shieling Forest, please visit their site at https://www.nhdfl.org/Natural-Heritage/State-Owned-Reservations/Shieling-Forest
Making Friends with Faeries: Making friends with faeries can be tricky as they are very mistrustful of humans. However, we will create and work with faery rings as well as perform a meditation that will help us communicate with them.
Ego Eradicator & Restless Mind Meditation: When your mind is chaotic and running rampant with no relief in sight, or if you are trying to sit quietly and meditate and you can't shut down the incessant pestering inside your head, use these meditations; they will help to soothe your mind and allow you to ease into peace and clarity. We will use these meditations to prepare for our next exercise, Communicating with Trees.
Communicating with Trees: Trees have immense wisdom to share with us if we can only quiet ourselves enough to listen. After you have calmed your mind and centered yourself, you will spend time meeting and communicating with a tree of your choice.
Kirtan Kriya: After dinner, we will go to MacDowell Dam to sit out under the light of the moon and experience the Kirtan Kriya. This is one of my favorite kriyas that I have found while studying Kundalini yoga. I love that it incorporates, singing, mantra, visualization and silent meditation. When I practice this Kriya, I feel connected, and my entire body vibrates with energy.
“Yogi Bhajan said at Winter Solstice 1972 that a person who wears pure white and meditates on this sound current for 2-1/2 hours a day for one year, will know the unknowable and see the unseeable. Through this constant practice, the mind awakens to the infinite capacity of the soul for sacrifice, service, and creation.” From the 3HO website.
Receiving Messages from the Moon: After our Kirtan Kriya we will sit with the Moon and receive her messages. “Anytime the I am at my fullest, casting light on the darkest nights you can sit outside under my light and communicate with me. Clear your mind of all thoughts, open yourself to receive and listen for my messages.” – Luna, during her communication with Alivia.
DINNER - Will be from 7 pm - 8:30 pm at Kogetsu in Peterborough, NH - Cost for dinner is inclusive of the workshop price - Alcoholic drinks are NOT INCLUSIVE and must be paid for by anyone who orders them.
