Full Moon Soundbath: Purification and Celebration
January 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PST$15 – $20
Celebrate the Full Moon with Magical Moon Rites & a Rejuvenating Soundbath Ceremony. If you would like to come in-person, please RSVP via email (see below) as space is limited.
For this Full Moon Rite, we celebrate the energies for the month of Ch’en, 12/23-1/11. The ancient Yucatec Maya activated and renewed the sacred energies of their sacred items, including ones for divination and manifestation. In Mesoamerican curanderismo traditions, it is believed that the energies of the full moon can be accessed the day before and after the peak of the full moon. January’s full moon will peak at 3pm PST on the 6th. Our Full Moon Ceremony will integrate these traditions.
We start with shamanic breathwork and trance journeys to work with the sacred energies of the Full Moon. Once we cleansed and revitalized ourselves with shamanic breathwork, explored the sacred meanings of the full moon and full rites, everyone will be lie down and receive the healing vibrations from a sound bath. The sound bath will include crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, gongs and medicine songs providing a lush soundscape for deep meditative journeying and melodies to open the heart.
In this ceremony, you will:
• Connect and Manifest with the Magic of the Full Moon
• Learn a traditional Mesoamerican Full Moon Rite
• Receive vibrational healing through sound baths and icaros (medicine songs)
• Engage in shamanic breathwork that focus on an area of the body & the benefits of working on this area of the body
• Explore Ancient Mesoamerican Indigenous magic, wisdom, traditions, and rites concerning the Full Moon
• Something to lie down on: yoga mat or small blanket
