This month's theme is:
Shadow & Light: Welcoming the Fall
It's time to slooooowwwww down…
This month we will honor the Fall season and the opportunities it brings for spiritual growth and self improvement.
Even in Hawaii the changing of the seasons impacts us energetically. As you welcome in the Fall, saying goodbye to long summer days, there is an energetic invitation to slow down and go within. Take advantage of this natural planetary rhythm, so you can literally, “fall back on yourself” in order to gain a greater understanding of your own personal "shadow and light”.
The power of “shadow and light” work can not be underestimated. If you are to be an extraordinary, successful human being, you will need to be able to recognize and understand your own personal shadow and light.
Meditation is the supreme tool for accessing these teachings.
This session will include pranayama and insights on how you can discover and understand your own shadows and light using meditation. It is followed by a harmonic sound bath in your favorite restorative posture.
To be at peace is to live in harmony with everything and everyone around you. It is total freedom from fear and resistance. But, in order to truly be at peace you have to find peace within. You may often find your outer world gets chaotic and feels out of balance. You may be trying to change your external circumstances to find peace, but find that nothing ever lasts long term. You will never find peace externally, if you are lacking it internally.
Meditation is a tool used to cultivate inner peace.
It is a way to practice focusing on the present. It’s a practice of acknowledging any regrets you may have had about the past or worries you may have about the future, accepting them without judgement and gently letting them go.
Sometimes in our busy lives we struggle to find the time or the “right place” to relax and sink deeply into our meditation. Group meditation can be extremely powerful in this case. Meditating as a group strengthens the mana of the practice. We support each other and remember that it is OK to “fall off” our practice, because we can always start again together.
Jennifer Reuter has been practicing meditation for over 10 years. She is an expert in teaching the concepts and techniques of this practice, and begins each event going over these in full detail, often sharing some personal insights along the way. She guides you into your meditation from a place of love and compassion.
At the end of your silent meditation, you will be guided to lie down and relax while Jennifer presents the vibrational sounds of the gong, quartz bowls and chimes in a centering yogic sound bath.
