Meditation For Peace
Apr

4:00 PM16:00

Meditation For Peace

This Month’s Theme:

This month we complete the teachings of Kriya Yoga, and how it applies to meditation, with the practice of Ishvarapranidhana, or self-surrender.

Host: Jennifer Reuter & Brigitte Snyder

*With Special Musical Guest: Paul Izak

Event Details:

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. 

Meditation For Peace is a monthly gathering created for you to work on cultivating your own inner peace. It is a place suitable for anyone, whether you are just starting out, have an intermittent practice or practice daily.

This event includes:

  • 20 min: Inspirational and educational talk on meditation

  • 20 min: Pranayama + Seated meditation practice

  • 30 min: Sound healing

$15 at the door (walk ins welcome)

Franklin Method bodywork + Acupuncture + Sound Bath

Join us for the first day of Spring as we welcome new beginnings.

In the same way you might engage in the Spring cleaning of your external environment, your body needs to clean out your internal environment, both physically and emotionally. Hence, Spring is the time for rejuvenation.

In Chinese Medicine, the focus during this season is specifically on rejuvenating the liver and gall bladder. These 3 complimentary healing modalities will help stimulate circulation within and around these organs. When the liver functions smoothly, physical and emotional activity throughout the body also runs smoothly.

Franklin Method

Lisa Ortega-Loya, owner of On Balance Pilates, will start with Franklin Method techniques designed to relax tight muscles, improve circulation and focus your mind on your body. Special attention will be given to the liver, ligaments and tendons.

The Franklin Method is an imagery-based systematic method for movement and postural retraining. You will be trained to observe, contemplate, and optimize your movements using self-touch, sensory cues and proprioception. You will learn how to move the body with maximum efficiency in order to keep it youthful and energized.

Acupuncture

After you have prepped your body for deep relaxation, get ready to relax and melt as Mariya Gold administers acupuncture to corresponding ear and head points….

Sound Healing

…during a blissful sound bath of crystal bowls and gongs performed by Jennifer Reuter.

This is sure to be a truly transformative and healing event.

About Lisa:

Lisa began her Pilates journey in California where she received a Theater/Dance degree from Cal State University, Fullerton. Managing her back pain from scoliosis, she worked for several chiropractors and discovered the Pilates technique was the only thing that helped relieve her symptoms. Lisa immersed herself in Pilates work and became one of the founding members of The Institute for the Pilates Method, the only national Pilates organization at the time.

In 1993 she opened On Balance Pilates Studio, the FIRST Pilates studio on Oahu. She has since moved to Kailua where her current studio also offers Dynamic Strength,  TRX, Floor-Barre (R) and Bones for Life (Feldenkrais based).

Shadow & Light: An Afternoon Of Rewarding Self-Care

Yoga, Meditation & Sound Bath + Lunch at Fete

It is our belief, that every one of us hold both shadow and light. 

Soften the “armor” that has built up around your body.

Open up your body so you can shine a light on some of the shadows you may have. These shadows can be unconscious thought patterns and/or positive things about yourself, that you haven’t fully embraced yet.

This practice will celebrate the light that is already present, and possibly even highlight the forgotten, dormant shadows that are overlooked

Sarah’s asana practice will focus on opening up the heart and shoulders with backbends, hip openers and grounding postures that activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

From there, you will be invited to lay back, as Jennifer guides you through a nourishing yoga nidra meditation practice and sound bath using Tibetan singing bowls.

Immediately following the event we will walk across the street to Fete where, local chef and fellow yogi, Robynne Mai’i will prepare us a simple, yet elegant lunch prepared with local ingredients.

Asana led by Sarah McTee

Yoga Nidra & Tibetan Bowls by Jennifer Reuter

Ticket options:

Full event 10:45-1:30pm – $45

Yoga only (no lunch) 10:45-12:15pm – $25

Tickets can be purchased here

Meditation For Peace

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. 

Event Description:

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.
