Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that teaches you to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both your mind and body. When we teach mindfulness to kids, we equip them with tools to build self-esteem, manage stress, increase focus, improve academic performance and skillfully approach challenging moments. Mindfulness means paying full attention to something. It means slowing down to really notice what you're doing. We need mindfulness to pay attention better, learn more with less distractions, learn how to stay calm under stress, listen to others better and to feel happier.
By teaching children meditation and mindfulness skills we help them increase their well-being and enable them to meet the stresses of the world with presence, self-compassion, and openness. Mindfulness helps us create space between a strong emotion and our actions. We learn to deal with positive and negative experiences calmly by making better decisions. The earlier we do so in their young lives, the greater the opportunity to help them cultivate resilience and develop and refine their mindfulness practice as they mature.
Teaching mindfulness to kids can also help shape three critical skills developed in early childhood: paying attention and remembering information, shifting back and forth between tasks, and behaving appropriately with others. These abilities are known as executive functions and they are essential for more advanced tasks like planning, reasoning, problem-solving, and positive social relationships.
A full moon represents the completion of the lunar cycle. Emotions and feelings are heightened during this time, creating an opportunity to confront your shadows and move forwards. The moon is at it’s biggest and brightest in the sky, symbolizing the culmination of the month gone by and illuminating the things that no longer serve you. The energy of the full moon is an opportunity to celebrate and express gratitude for the abundance in your life, to manifest the things you have worked towards and let go of the things holding you back.
Join us for a magical sound healing experience under the light of the full moon and embark on a journey of spiritual growth and transformation. Bathe in the beautiful healing sound of: crystal sound bowls, gongs, drums, chimes, native flute and more, as you restore balance within your body, release old energies, and elevate your vibrational frequency. A sound bath can be a powerful experience, sometimes resulting in the release of heavy emotions. It can also be an experience that brings extreme peace and clarity. Each of us is different and on our own unique path. Sound healing takes you on a journey that offers deep healing on a cellular level, cleansing negative energy and emotions, breaking old unwanted patterns of behavior and subconscious fears, and resetting the physical, emotional, and mental body into perfect peace and harmony.
This circle will offer a unique experience combining Sound-bath, Mindfulness, Meditation, Journaling, and Transformational Breath-work to help you tap into the energy of the full moon and take you on an inward journey. Our sacred full moon circle is a safe space for people to lay bare their personal reflections to heal, connect, feel supported, and help others along their own journeys. They can take many forms, but their intentions remain unified: to harness the power of the moon to promote community, spiritual connection, and inner reflection. Everything that happens in circle remains privately in the circle, which allows everyone to truly open up, share, and be authentic.
