Sacred Sunrise Solstice Meditation Friday, December 21st 2012 6:00am-7:00am – Fee $15
The Earth is undergoing a Vibrational Shift, a Raising of Consciousness. As beings living on this planet we are undergoing that same transformation. During times of great change one may have a sense of instability and uncertainty but it is only out of “chaos” that order is established. The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. We have the fewest daylight hours as the North Pole is tilted 23.5 degrees away from the sun. Winter Solstice 2012 at 6:11am marks the transition from one Age into another, moving from the darkness of Fear and Ignorance into a Light Age of Love and Expanding Consciousness. All things are cyclical like the seasons of the year. The leaf willingly releases from the branch falling to the earth to become compost for the next season’s growth. When we cling fast to the old, we remain in a state of contraction preventing the natural flow of evolution which is always in the direction of something greater. Join Katrin Naumann for a Sacred Sunrise Solstice Meditation to usher in this New Age of Inner Awakening and Heart Centered Being. Please arrive at 5:45 am so we can begin promptly at 6 am. Pre-Registration required. Please call 315-671-5755 to reserve your spot.
Restorative Yoga Workshop Saturday, December 29th 12:30-3:30pm – Fee $30
In the depths of winter, when there is less outward light and the pace of life naturally slows, we are encouraged to honor our own inner rhythms and cultivate the stillness and silence that blanket the outer world. Using various props, certified instructor Katrin Naumann will guide you in an exploration of deeper states of consciousness as you restore equilibrium and experience a greater sense of wholeness through this profoundly healing practice. Pre-registration required, RSVP to 315.671.5755.
