The Chakra System - Two day workshop with Crystal Rainbow Borrelli
Saturday, October 12th, 1-3 pm and Sunday, October 13th, 12-2 pm
The Saturday session will begin by examining how the body’s entire subtle system works together, including the Nadis (rivers of energy), the Granthis (energetic knots), the Chakras (wheels of energy), and Kundalini (coiled energy), and how all of these are connected to the Gods and Goddesses of Yoga.
The session will conclude with a special practice of pranayama, mantra, asana, and meditation to help stimulate and balance the energy within the body in a harmonious way.
Sunday’s session will briefly review the Chakras, with a focus on understanding when the Chakras are unbalanced, which ones are unbalanced or balanced, and how to regulate them. The emphasis will be on fully experiencing, by means of visualization, mantra, pranayama, asana, and guided meditation practices, the balancing of the Chakras.
- $70 Both days
- $40 Individual session
Highly recommended to take both sessions.

A Soft Place to Land - Shamanic Soul Healing, Ceremonial Cacao, Sacred Sound
May 18th 7pm-10pm
We all need a soft place to land right? A sanctuary in which we can slow down, rest and digest, and reorient ourselves back to the richness of the present moment, and the rhythm of Mama Earth. A place where we can let go of the demands and pressures of fast-paced, high-speed, on-demand living.
Our evening will begin with the sharing of ceremonial Cacao to support us in letting go into the soft landing place of our hearts. As we sink into the healing soundscape of gongs, singing bowls, steel tongue drums, and soul song transmission, each person will receive a shamanic healing, energy cleanse and flower blessing. This will allow us to release heaviness and return to a sweeter, more refined state, creating space for a renewed relationship with our Soul.
Join us for a unique experience and a beautiful way to reattune to love, bring compassion to what needs our attention, and open our hearts and vision to our higher selves.
Arrive 6:45pm to settle in Ceremony starts at 7:00pm
