Waxing Moon Soundbath: Welcoming in Abundance
October 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDT$10.00 – $15.00
Celebrate the Waxing 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.
Along with celebrating the Waxing Moon, we celebrate the month of Tzec 10/4-10/23. The ancient Yucatec Maya activated their living spaces with a quincunx and made offerings to the four chacs (skybearers). They placed balls of incense on platters, and painted figures of honey on the rims to bring abundance and prosperity. Our magical waxing moon rite will integrate these principals.
We start with shamanic breathwork and trance journeys, and work with the Waxing Moon. Once we cleansed and revitalized ourselves with shamanic breathwork, explored the sacred meanings of the waxing moon and waxing moon rites, everyone will 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 Waxing Moon
• Learn a traditional Mesoamerican Waxing 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 Waxing Moon
• Something to lie down on: yoga mat or small blanket
