Learn Tarot: Read Reversals

With Cynthia Ekren

LEARN TAROT

Beginning tarot readers are often discouraged from reading reversals to avoid feeling overwhelmed. In this hands-on class reading reversals will be broken down into easy to remember, easy to put into practice, methods of interpreting upside down cards. Some experience with tarot is preferable but not necessary. We will be using the Rider Waite/ Universal Tarot deck, but these principles will likely apply to your favorite deck, so consider bringing it along.

Sound Bath Meditation & Restorative Yoga

Sebastian Yoga

A “Sound Bath Meditation” is a very therapeutic form of meditation because you are literally “bathed” in sound waves. As these sound waves wash over your body, they can take you into the theta brainwave state, which leads to relaxation, healing, & deep meditation.

As Anthony offers this sound bath meditation, you will have the opportunity to increase the healing power of the bowls with a restorative yoga practice lead by Durgaya. As you find stillness in gentle yogic postures, you will create a direct pathway for the sound waves to enter and balance your body where it is most needed.

This type of practice is wonderful for beginners and experienced yogis. The bowls offer something for your mind to hold onto besides the endless chatter of your inner dialogue and the yoga practice will increase your ability to receive the healing energy of this unique and powerful experience.

Join Meditation with Anthony Profeta, Meditation Teacher and Durgaya Palmieri, 200-ERYT and owner of Sebastian Yoga Studio, to experience the powerful combination of sound healing and restorative yoga. Get ready to use bolsters, blankets and the stillness to relax your way into a healthier, happy state!

A Night of Lakshmi

3305761222_f5f23b1318

Join Durgaya Palmieri for a night of myths, practice, meditation and introspection, all in honor of Mother Lakshmi. Lakshmi is the goddess (or archetype) of love and abundance, of spiritual fulfillment and fertility. She shows us that love is within and gives us the gift of experiencing pleasure, joy and harmony in all things.

This two hour donation based practice will include the myth of Mother Lakshmi coming into being and how we can use this myth to enhance our own practice and our ability to connect with the feeling of joy in our lives. We will learn about the symbolism of her image, often seen in yoga studios and ancient Indian texts. Once we understand what the energy of Lakshmi represents, we will have an all levels practice to cultivate this essence in each of us as individuals and the space we share as a community. We will finish our practice with a heart based meditation and time for contemplation and discussion.

All the donations will go towards Durgaya’s trip to India!!!! Yay!
