CBC Sound Dreams with Shunny


Come clear out that Vortex, bring in the things that are really you and let's begin a new journey!

Being a powerful stress reducer, CBD also lessens pain, inflammation, anxiety, and depression. It is said to have antipsychotic effects and is a potent antioxidant.
In this SoundDreams Workshop, the effects of the CBD will be supported and amplified. The Sound Bath itself is designed to help you access parts of the mind, which are usually closed; resulting in an expanded sense of awareness and higher consciousness.

Frequencies of powerful Gongs, Tuning Forks, Crystal Singing Bowls, and other over-tone instruments induce altered states to release blockages and restore the flow of your Qi.
Your entire energy field will vibrate, be shaken up and reset.

Side effects of SoundDreams may be:
- spontaneous states of Bliss
- seeing beautiful colors and/or otherworldly symbols and visions
- OoB Experiences and/or Womb recreation
- a sense of Peace and Serenity
- a possible arising of Trauma or Karma so it can be worked with and dissolved
- an overall feeling of Connectedness and Love!
.
Wear comfortable clothes (yoga mats and blankets will be provided) and bring an eye-mask or shawl if you like.

Highly encouraged to bring items you'd like to charge during the Sound Bath and a Journal is never a bad idea.
Please arrive 10 mins early.

Tarantella Healing Trance Dances & Rhythms
Jun
29
7:00 PM19:00

Tarantella Healing Trance Dances & Rhythms

:: Join us at Daya Yoga Studio for THE ANCIENT NIGHT OF THE TARANTULA ::

.

.

Experience the healing power of Southern Italian tarantella rhythms and dance with internationally renowned singer, percussionist, and teacher, Alessandra Belloni author of the book HEALING JOURNEYS WITH THE BLACK MADONNA published by Inner traditions with foreword by best selling author Rev Dr Matthew Fox.

.

.

We’ll learn the traditional ancient healing trance dance of the tarantella, used to cure the mythical bite of the tarantula, in use for centuries throughout the Mediterranean. We’ll create a community healing ritual as our bodies move in ways that help us to open the energy points and stay grounded.

.

.

In Italy, the ritual is traditionally celebrated in a church in Apulia on June 29 for the Feast of St Peter and Paul . This will be the third time that Alessandra Belloni makes this a special annual tradition The participants will be invited to join in "releasing the poison and venom from our bodies and souls.

.

.

The ancient Tarantati Trance Ritual, is traditionally celebrated in Italy on June 29 (Feast of St. Paul) for the benefit of people, mainly women, who suffered from a form of depression or psychiatric disorder that was attributed to the bite of the tarantula.

.

.

We’ll also learn a unique style of traditional Southern Italian tambourine playing, including variations of the basic 6/8 rhythm of the Tarantella. These rhythms and movements represent an unbroken chain of inspiration and expression of sound and dance, dating back to the rites of the Mother Earth Goddess Cybele, and kept alive into the present. We will learn the history of this powerful tambourine style, traditionally done by women. Empowering women to get in touch with their ancient frame drumming traditions, achieve inner balance and relief of stress while restoring spiritual and physical energy is a major theme of this work.

.

.

Alessandra will speak about her book:

growing up with the Black Madonna; the universal Mother is everywhere; the hidden continuity, from Cybele and Isis to the Black Madonna; sacred chants of the Divine Feminine; a life-changing vision of the Black Mother, feeling other’s people pain and the pain of the Earth; guided to the dancing and singing rituals of the Black Mother in Southern Italy; tammoriatta, the wild communion with the Divine Mother; the sacred erotic; healing the trauma of sexual abuse with the communal spider dance; Mama Schiavona and the sacred mountain of Montevergine; the ancient tradition of the femminielli; the journey of grief into ecstasy; Black Madonna, revering Mother Earth as a Living Being; a prophetic dream calling to change our relationship with the Earth; joining inner and outer activism.

.

.

ABOUT ALESSANDRA BELLONI::


Alessandra Belloni is author of the new book HEALING JOURNEYS WIT H THE BLACK MADONNA published by Inner Traditions Bear & Company rated 5 stars & No 1 n Folk Dancing by Amazon and author of RHYTHM IS THE CURE published by Mel Bay.

.

.

She studied this ancient healing ceremony, as well as drumming and dance techniques from many old Southern Italian peasants in Calabria, Campania and Puglia and has also studied shamanism in Brazil, Scotland, Hawaii and with Native American elders in North America for the last 20 years. She has worked at Mount Sinai Mental Division with out patients, and has been leading healing drumming sessions at United Hebrew Nursing home in New Rochelle for the last 2 and half years. Alessandra’s original opera The Voyage of the Black Madonna allowed her to be artist in residence at the beautiful Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, where she leads workshops and performances inspired by the Black Madonna, an ancient form of the divine feminine harkening back to the cradle of humanity in Africa. Many of her students have felt the immense healing power of these dances and have reported feeling totally transformed, healed and liberated by the experience.


:: MORE INFORMATION ::


Observation on the tarantella. It has been used in Italy and the Mediterranean for centuries to cure people, mainly women, who suffered a form of mental depression known as tarantismo, attributed to the mythical bite of the tarantula. According to what Alessandra observed in her practice and personal experience in teaching healing workshops around the world, “tarantismo” may be defined as depression, suicide mania, hysteria, aggression, and sexual dysfunction resulting from sexual abuse. In modern day music therapy the tarantella rhythm targets especially women who have been abused and suffer from emotional and physical disorders, including cysts, displasia, irregular bleeding, early menopause .


Tambourine and frame drum - Put into practice with frame drum technique. Alessandra as facilitator embraces the Tammorriata- 4/4 rhythm in honor of the Black Madonna with African origins– making a circle of frame drum players. The focus is to give the participants a practical tool to use in their practices, using small percussion instruments such as tambourines together with movement and exercises for grounding and opening the heart chakra.



Trance healing dance of San Rocco RITMO E DANZA DI SAN ROCCO or SPINNING DANCE – This dance originating in Calabria during the Middle Ages evokes the elegant and meditative movements of the Whirling Dervish ceremonies of the Sufis. This dance was used during the time of the plague to heal people and as a release from overpowering fears of death. Due to the trance-inducing movements and incessant spinning many people enter ecstatic states during this dance.


THE PIZZICA TARANTATA or Spider Dance– This erotic and dynamic ritual dance originated as a cure for the mythical bite of the Tarantula, a condition causing a mental disease called tarantismo, which afflicted mainly women (tarantate) in Southern Italy. The wild rhythm of the Pizzica, played on medium size tambourines and accompanied by dance was performed as an exorcism ritual which produced a trance-like state beneficial for the healing of many disorders and imbalances. As part of a re-enactment of this healing ritual, Alessandra will lead the participants in a circle dance accompanied by her magic tambourine 6/8 rhythm and singing. During the ritual each student will learn the steps of the Pizzica, which means “ bite,” building up to a culmination where each student will enter the circle and lay down upon a white sheet, surrounded by red ribbons, and emulate "Spider" like movements on the ground, releasing stress and blockages of sexual energy, as well as opening the heart and throat chakras. The dance comes to completion as each participant dances their way out of an imaginary “Spider Web"

Bushwick Astrology Club

led by Daniela Reul

Inflammatory Response and Mars

Inflammatory responses are becoming more and more common. An autoimmune disease is described as "if you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake", and nobody understands the cause.

The immune system is responsible for protecting the body from any harm, but how much of its response is related to our thoughts and emotional state? How many people in your life have you felt that you needed to be guarded from? Sadly, most of those people are people who you once loved.

Are immune diseases related to anger or frustration? Maybe they are related to a wound that never truly healed? That has been perceived as "danger" (meaning, we might re-live that experience) we react and jump into defense mode.

Mars is the planet of action, of war, of masculine energy, and it also rules the immune system.

In this class we will be exploring the Mars of each individual, and see how that translates into our own lives. Mars also rules inflammatory responses in the body, as well as iron in the blood, and the digestive process—interestingly enough gut health is so linked to autoimmune diseases.

What's the antidote? Venus. Yes, the planet of love. But not just any love, unconditional love. Understanding this relationship in our charts change our view in how we love, show our love into the world, and with ourselves. And when we experience our understanding of love, how do we react?

This is the meaning of Mars in our chart.

Restore the Heart :: Self-Healing Workshop
Jun

2:00 PM14:00

Restore the Heart :: Self-Healing Workshop

Our heart carries weight. It soaks up pain, pain that belongs to us and pain that belongs to others. Some hearts are the feelers of the entire world. And our hearts hold onto that collected trauma for much longer than we think. Without us knowing, our heart can either be too open and unprotected, or too closed off, blocked from the sun. But each one of us has the power to inspect our own heart, to heal and to rebalance it, so that we are making decisions out of truth instead of pain.

Join us in the sacred home of Daya Yoga Studio for a self-healing workshop to restore our heart chakra. We will begin with an intention setting cacao ceremony, before moving into a heart nourishing guided meditation. Lavender will be administering heart chakra-based Reiki healing during the meditation, to send love and to work through any blockages. Our afternoon will close with a cleansing ritual to fully release any weight or unwanted attachments surrounding our heartspace. Individuals will find peace, realign, and learn techniques to heal themselves.

A collective healing experience within a space held for men and the virtues of masculine energy.

Join us in a Reiki Circle of Brothers as we acknowledge and energize the positive male archetypes under a canopy of universal life force energy.

In this workshop we’ll explore the challenges of embodying the masculine, and how they can be opportunities to grow and develop our spiritual expression. We will then put our thoughts into action around a circle of integrated energywork.

The circle will open with warm ups and introductions, and then move into individual biofield adjustments. Once each of us is feeling clear and balanced, we’ll widen the focus and enter into an active engagement of our collective vibration. Here we’ll we co-create a dynamic energetic field charged with Reiki and our will to heal. The circle will close with grounding the work in place and with sharing reflections and blessings as we continue onward in radiant peace.

Quoting my dear friend here on Cacao as medicine of Love
.
" Many indigenous communities see cacao as a sacred food and connection to the divine. The essence of the cacao connects us to the dream world. For many of these communities, the dream world is where there are no physical limitations, so we’re able to explore beyond certain walls. As cacao connects us to the dream world we can use the material—cacao—to understand what’s happening on a human level while becoming aware of what’s happening beyond."

Reiki  Immersion

Reiki Immersion

Reiki Immersion

led by Aeron Ridgeaway

Every human being has an innate force within them that empowers their life. This energy is everpresent in our lives. Many of us aren't aware of its influence on our experiences, but even worse, some of us subconsciously inhibit this vital life force energy. Accepting and acknowledging this force allows us to direct it toward accomplishing whatever we desire. This energy goes by many names. You may know of it as Prana or Chi. I call it Reiki; translated from Japanese, this means “universal life-force energy.”

If you are interested in experiencing Reiki for yourself; using Reiki to relieve pain, stress, or anxiety; or using it to create joy, love, and peace in your life, then join me in this training; it is open to people at all levels of experience.

In this training, you will learn the fundamentals of Reiki traditionally taught in a Level I class as well as some of the more advanced techniques taught in the Level II class. You will receive a Level I attunement, will have opportunities to practice and will learn to use Reiki for stress relief, anxiety, pain reduction, and other ailments during this immersion. Reiki is easy to learn and easy to master. Aeron looks forward to sharing his knowledge and love of the practice with you

::BIO of Facilitator::

Aeron has been a Reiki master for almost a decade. He is also a watercolor & performance artist. He works as a UX/UI Designer. What he loves most about teaching Reiki is seeing his students experience joy, amazement, relief, validation, intrigue & curiosity. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with his wife, Sarah & dog, Reishi.

Q: Why were you originally drawn to Reiki?

A: As part of my spiritual practice I was studying images of the energy body and the chakras and realized that direct experience of my own energy body would be the most empowering form of knowledge. When I was introduced to Reiki I knew that it would help me do that. Around the same time, my Reiki master called me a natural transmuter and encouraged me to delve into the practice.

Q: How do you think your style of practice is distinct from other styles of Reiki?

A: The convention in Reiki is that it is a skill to learn rather than a sense to tune into. I see Reiki awareness as the natural state. Learning Reiki is healing. Learning Reiki is getting back to parity with yourself; it isn’t leveling up.

Q: How did Reiki help you find personal healing?

A: It helped me realize that health is a holistic state as well as the importance of identifying un-holistic beliefs and practices that cause pain, distress & dis-ease. Practicing Reiki makes me feel good and, like life, it is neverending. I don’t pretend to be perfect and I still make mistakes but this expanded awareness helps me to make more informed choices in my life overall.

High on Chakra Tuning Yoga

Chakra Tuning Class

led by Isaac Krauss & Corrine Krupp


You’ll be guided upward through the seven energy vortexes, as we invoke liberation and balance, through bija mantras, single-pointed concentration, metta meditation, and a series of asana postures. When the energy centers are blocked from attachment, self-doubt, disconnect from others and the natural world, we are blocked from stepping into our fullest potential. Together, we’ll intentionally work toward clearing pathways for prana to move freely between our energy centers for increased receptivity, clarity, and health. This tuning class is suitable and encouraged for all levels of practitioners.

CBD Sound Dreams Sound Bath w/ Shunny

CBD Sound Dreams

led by Shunny Willamovius

Come clear out that Vortex, bring in the things that are really you and let's begin a new journey!

Being a powerful stress reducer, CBD also lessens pain, inflammation, anxiety and depression. It is said to have antipsychotic effects and is a potent antioxidant.
In this SoundDreams Workshop, the effects of the CBD will be supported and amplified. The Sound Bath itself is designed to help you access parts of the mind, which are usually closed; resulting in an expanded sense of awareness and higher consciousness.
Frequencies of powerful Gongs, Tuning Forks, Crystal Singing Bowls and other over-tone instruments induce altered states to release blockages and restore the flow of your Qi.
Your entire energy field will vibrate, be shaken up and reset.

Side effects of SoundDreams may be:
- spontaneous states of Bliss
- seeing of beautiful colors and/or other worldly symbols and visions
- OoB Experiences and/or Womb recreation
- a sense of Peace and Serenity
- a possible arising of Trauma or Karma so it can be worked with and dissolved
- an overall feeling of Connectedness and Love!
.
Wear comfortable clothes (yoga mats and blankets will be provided) and bring an eye-mask or shawl if you like.
Please arrive 10 mins early. The event will start promptly at 6:30pm.

Reiki Circle of Brothers
Apr

8:00 PM20:00

Reiki Circle of Brothers

Reiki Circle of Brothers

led by Benjamin Lang

A collective healing experience within a space held for men and the virtues of masculine energy.

Join us in a Reiki Circle of Brothers as we acknowledge and energize the positive male archetypes under a canopy of universal life force energy.

In this workshop we’ll explore the challenges of embodying the masculine, and how they can be opportunities to grow and develop our spiritual expression. We will then put our thoughts into action around a circle of integrated energywork.

The circle will open with warm ups and introductions, and then move into individual biofield adjustments. Once each of us is feeling clear and balanced, we’ll widen the focus and enter into an active engagement of our collective vibration. Here we’ll we co-create a dynamic energetic field charged with Reiki and our will to heal. The circle will close with grounding the work in place and with sharing reflections and blessings as we continue onward in radiant peace.

As men, we have a unique capacity to direct force onto our reality. We are the ones who reach. And our polarity is what qualifies this action to be either in service to self or in service to others. In this circle, we seek to serve others; we hold space for our healing. In this circle, we are together - united as Brothers.
