The Vibrational Lightness Of Being
A Journey to Discover Our Eternal Self Through Rhythm
This workshop experience is a guided rhythmic journey to explore the threads of lifetimes that each of us are connected to. We will explore the idea of time and space and how rhythmic meditation can assist each of us in connecting with the many incarnations that we have had and/or will experience helping us to establish the idea of an “eternal” self.
We explore recent scientific discoveries and how they relate to ancient spiritual ideas on multiple lifetimes and reincarnation, tying them together to assist us in healing the multidimensional reality that we are a part of in our current incarnation. Stephanie will lead us in a guided rhythmic meditation to connect with the ideas presented in the workshop. Drummers and non-drummers are welcome. Also, please bring a notebook and pen.
