Upcoming இ Event Saturday, March 9

On March 9th, we will gather to build mindful community through social healing and sharing of the universal language of benevolent energy. This will be an evening of sharing healing reiki, sound, and ritual.

Be kind enough to hold space for a stranger and courageous enough to expect nothing in return. Your heart will be filled and your soul nourished in a circle of giving and receiving.
— இ REIKI-NATIVE

We come together to support each other on our individual and collective paths. In a circle of giving through empathetically holding space for each of our journeys, we receive. Our safe and inclusive environment of support embraces and holds us in a vessel of deep healing and self-discovery. We all know one another in the collective experience of being human together. We hold each other in equal balance and, without expectation, we give and receive to and from one another to magnify our healing experience.

Please bring one small token of giving to exchange in the circle (e.g., a flower, a stone, a short poem, a favorite tea bag or incense stick).

Come comfortably, simply, and don’t forget your comfortable yoga mat and socks (blankets are recommended). A portion of all suggested donation proceeds will benefit The Gentle Barn. More details below

Upcoming இ Event Saturday, January 12

Will you lead a creative or a curated life on your next walk around the sun in 2019?

The most valuable thing we have to offer the world is not our force, our ambition, or our ability to problem-solve, but a cultivated inner life, a centered spirit and the courage to create.
— AmyAnn Caldwell

When the chatter of the holiday season has silenced, we meet ourselves in a creative white space that allows for making peace with our own silence. In this space, we can step fully into the greatest expression of ourselves. Gather with me at our January 12th Reiki and Sound Healing Circle as we explore this creative space and consciously manifest an incoming year of creative expansion through the cultivation of daily creative practice (creative mindsets, creative communication, creative action, etc.) …and leave all the curated stories of our world behind.

Come comfortably, simply, and don’t forget your yoga mat and socks. A portion of all proceeds will benefit The Gentle Barn. More details below

Love the handful of earth that you are.
— Pablo Neruda

Silence is a forgotten language. The village well is a forgotten meeting place. On November 2nd, I will be hosting an evening where we celebrate both (sound & silence). Join me for a small community gathering of meditative sound, uplifting stillness, and restorative energy balancing. This will be a casual evening of conscious self-care (yoga attire), where we will unwind our grip, awaken in self, connect in community, and explore the quality of the silence that the sound leaves behind for us. This is a casual, no-frills celebration of self-love and inter-connectedness. Come comfortably and don’t forget your yoga mat and socks. Light refreshments will be served. A large portion of all donations will benefit The Gentle Barn. More details below

COME இ SIT இ STAY AWHILE

Your Word of the Day

Sound is the resonance of who you are.
— Chloe Goodchild

We practice intention with what goes into our mouths (i.e., the chilis pictured), but what about what comes out of our mouths via our words?  Let's ask ourselves: What do the words I utter say about me?  What values do my words embody?  What do the words I think, my inner dialogue, say to me?  What is my verbal signature?  Words have energy.  Words are energy.  Words create or destroy, allowing us to expand luminously or dwindle.  Words are catalysts and allies in our manifestation of healing, peace, and positive transformation.

According to Chloe Goodchild, the Aborigines believe in the notion that we have the capability to sound a whole new world into being.

Don Miguel Ruiz writes about "being impeccable with your word" in The Four Agreements.

I invite you to cultivate a daily practice that uses the rich beauty of language to create more harmony, more love, more connection, and more alignment...within yourself, beyond yourself.

Let's sound a whole new world into being through our choice of words.  Using our voice for conscious communication, what a privilege and what a responsibility it is.

In authenticity and co-creation,

~ Katherine R.
