Celebrate the New 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 New Moon Ceremony and Soundbath, we set our intentions for 2024.
1/8- 1/27: Izcalli (encouragement for the land and people). Eighteenth Month. Transformation and Release. They celebrated a feast to the god of Fire, Xiuhtecutli. On the tenth day of the month they made a fire at midnight. When a flame began to form they blew on the fire to share their tonalli with the fire.
Along with celebrating the New Moon, we celebrate the month of Izcalli (1/8- 1/27:). The ancient Central Mexicans, celebrated a feast in honor the god of Fire, Xiuhtecutli. They made a fire at midnight. When a flame began to form they blew on the fire to share their tonalli with the fire to set their intentions. Our magical New Moon ceremony will integrate these principles.
We start with shamanic breathwork and trance journeys to explore our intentions, and work with the New Moon. Once we cleansed and revitalized ourselves with shamanic breathwork, explored the sacred meanings of the new moon and new moon rites, everyone will 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 New Moon
• Learn a traditional Mesoamerican New 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 New Moon
• Something to lie down on: yoga mat or small blanket
Date/Time: 1/11, 7-8:30pm PST (the recording will be available for 2 weeks after we go live)
