Sound Healing Meditation

with Paul Temple’s RadianceMatrix

Nourish your body, mind and soul in the healing waves of Tibetan singing bowls and chanting. Bathe in harmonious vibrations of peace and beauty. Dissolve into another dimension – the pure land, the Buddha field — into timelessness and stillness of mind. Tibetan Healing bowls create a very pure sonic resonance that induces a deep inner stillness, mental calm and peaceful feeling. They are a simple but powerful path to inner peace, which is something difficult to find in our busy technological world. Come relax and meditate. The bowls are accompanied by flutes and mantra chanting. Participants may sit or lie down. Bring a blanket or pillow for extra comfort.

Couples Movement Collage
With Damian Leuthold

You will be encouraged to find the earth, find yourself, and find your partner. Then you will be invited to explore non-sexual movement and touch like nuzzling, rocking, cradling, pressing, and leaning. If there is time we will continue with exercises to explore some of the movement dynamics underlying your relationship.

SomaSpeed Dating
With Damian Leuthold

Here is a chance to meet others that have space and desire for more and deeper connection in their life. Together we will explore questions like these: Beyond the image and the chatter, what do we experience when we look deep into each other’s eyes? How does it feel when we are close to another? What does it feel like to lean in? How does our playfulness express itself with different people?  *** Please arrive on time!
