Sacred Sound: The World Sound Healing Day – A Ceremony to Heal the World Special Event
with Elizabeth Tomboulian
90.00 minutes
$30.00
Sunday, Feb 14, 3 - 4:30 pm Over the past 13 years the World Sound Healing Day has grown on an exponential level, occurring in over 45 countries around our globe with literally thousands of people sounding the AH sound with the intention of bringing peace and healing to our Mother Earth. Sound coupled with intention provides a truly powerful avenue for healing. Participate with thousands of other like-minded sound travelers during that day, sounding forth for 5 minutes with an "AH" encoded with the energies of love and compassion. Together we project a "Sonic Valentine" to our Mother Earth that helps in assisting the healing of our planet! After a brief introduction into techniques of overtone singing and toning, join together with people all over the world who are singing with intention to bring healing, peace and harmony—Global Harmonization-—to our beloved planet.Now! "From my continued inner knowing of working as a pioneer and innovator in the field of sound healing since 1982, it truly seems that 'intentionalized sound' such as we do on World Sound Healing Day may be one of the single most effective ways of interfacing with the vibrational field of our beloved planet. Our Earth needs vibratory shifting more than ever at this time! There is a reason that a majority of the prayers that manifest are vocalized: whispered, spoken, chanted or sung.This is because sound amplifies the power of prayer:'In the Beginning was the Word.'" — Jonathan Goldman. Cost: $30; Members save 15% (Note: This event is a part of the 4-week “Sacred Sound – Find Yours!” series and included in the full course preregistration price.) A lifelong professional musician whose specialties are jazz, improvisation, sacred, and South American music, Elizabeth Toumboulian has studied Sound Energy Healing with Rhiannon, Judith Kehealani Lynne, and Jonathan Goldman, founder of the worldwide Sound Healers Association, where she is a member. She is a certified practitioner of Quantum Energetics Structured Therapy™, Sound Energy Healing, and CranioSacral Therapy at Edgar Cayce NY A.R.E. www.elizabethtomboulian.com

From there Irene started on her journey to understanding what was happening - was there really an afterlife? Could Saul really talk to her from the Other Side? What did he know? What could he tell her? Find out as she gives you an exclusive insight into her journey, and what that can mean for you. $15 if preregistered online; $20 at the door Irene Weinberg is a mother, stepmother, widow and author of the five-star reviewed book, They Serve Bagels in Heaven.

Many people struggle with the idea of being perfectly still in order to practice meditation. In this class we will move our bodies as we meditate, learning how to practice mindfulness in our everyday activities. As we quiet the constant chatter in our heads, we receive clear messages from our bodies. This relaxed form of self-healing will leave you feeling grounded and centered in love of self. Experience this delicious practice where together we connect to our consciousness and life-force while moving to music. The class will end in a guided meditation. "The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind." – Caroline Myss Class is limited to the first 20 participants – preregistration is strongly advised. Maria Gutierrez-Ferrar has been a student of meditation for over 25 years and a facilitator for over 10, including meditation and mindfulness in every one of her classes. Maria came to meditation through a personal physical challenge: After being diagnosed with Lyme Disease and Fibromyalgia, she had to stop teaching and dancing for over 3 years. Not being able to move was unacceptable and painful to not only her body but her soul as well. Through yoga, meditation and simple movements, she was able to heal her body without medication and is back to teaching full-time. As a dance and movement teacher of afro-Cuban and ballroom dance, and now the World GROOVE Movement, she has inspired hundreds of people to connect with their bodies through dance and music.

Karmic Healing and Soul Retrieval with Bioenergy Special Event
with Anton Baraschi
120.00 minutes
$30.00
Occasionally one is confronted with ailments that resist conventional therapies. One feels like they’ve been “cursed” (“No matter what I do I can’t shake it off”). Through past life regression or readings, often a deeper reason for the ailment is found. Healing of the past can be achieved through bioenergy, and occasionally with homeopathy. Another aspect discussed is what shamans call soul retrieval. Bioenergy healing addresses this category in an energetic way. Examples, readings and therapies will be reviewed during class.
About the teacher
Anton Baraschi is a bioenergy specialist, teaching and practicing bioenergy healing (aka medical qigong) in Manhattan, with a focus on integrating multiple bioenergy healing modalities in supporting the work of medical professionals. Bioenergy healing stimulates a person’s own immune system with emphasis on the condition diagnosed by the doctor. Bioenergy healing is considered helpful on alleviating pain, chronic conditions and symptoms without a particular diagnostic, and for spiritual development.
