Abhishekam

  • SUNDAYS
  • 8:45am - 9:15am
  • Heartfelt Donation

This is a rich devotional practice in which a statue of a deity is bathed and ritually dressed. A deity is a form of the Divine. The Divine is infinite and pervades everything, including us! Yet often, we are not able to see the Divine in ourselves, or in the immediate world around us, because of conditioning. By offering our devotion to the Divine as it is found in the deity we are bathing, we start to remember the Divine is everywhere. As we honor the Divine in the form we can see before us, we are also remembering, honoring and awakening the Divine within our hearts.
 
Offered by Svaha and Shanti Mission Community

Meditation

  • WEDNESDAYS
  • 7:00pm - 8:00pm
  • Suggested Donation:$20

Experience bliss, peace, joy and deep healing.
This is not your traditional silent or guided meditation class. This meditation WILL bring change into your life.  It is meant to transform you, healing the chakras through the release of long-held negative thoughts and beliefs, stagnant emotions, and discordant vibrations.  It is an ACTIVE style meditation that often includes chanting, music, and requires your active participation.  All faiths and cultures are welcomed.

This style of meditation comes from Shakti Durga. Shakti Durga is the founder, spiritual head and inspirational leader of Shanti Mission (Peace Mission), with its head office based in Australia. The not-for-profit charity operates a wide-variety of projects and programs with the sole aim of creating an age of peace on earth: inner peace and peace between people.

Facilitator: Sierra, Svaha, Manjushri (rotates)

Gaia Puja

  • Offered MONTHLY, dates announced as available
  • TBA
  • Heartfelt Donation
  • MUST pre-register

Puja is the act of showing reverence to a god, a spirit, or another aspect of the divine through invocations, prayers, songs, and rituals. An essential part of puja is making a spiritual connection with the divine. Most often that contact is facilitated through an object: an element of nature, a sculpture, a vessel, a painting, or a picture. This icon is not the deity itself; rather, it is believed to be filled with the deity's cosmic energy. It is a focal point for honoring and communicating with the god. The objects allow the devotee to experience direct communication with his or her gods. Puja is an extraordinary sensory experience for the attendees with the colors, scents, sounds, and palpable energy.

For this puja we will be working with Gaia, the Earth Mother revered in the ancient Greek tradition. We invite you to come and connect with her to offer healing and gratitude to the Earth and receive the blessings of abundance and connectivity that she offers in return.

 

Healing Drum Circle

  • Offered MONTHLY, dates announced as available
  • Fri Dec 29th 6:30pm at Muktinath
  • $25
  • MUST pre-register

Healing Drum Circles are a gathering of those who wish to experience the healing energy of the drum, the heartbeat of Mother Earth. The drum has the ability to shift energy in a dramatic way as it is an integral tool for vibrational healing. The beat of the drum travels directly to the inner core and can facilitate the release of negative thoughts and behaviors, find the point of creation of illness or dis-ease, and raise the overall vibration of the entire being. 

The Healing Drum Circles begin with the calling in of spirit and the creation of sacred space. Each Circle is directly guided by spirit, so the format tends to vary for each one. The time of year, the phase of the moon and the current earth and celestial energies all can change the shape of the gathering. Some evenings include a shamanic journey, meditation, or a teaching focused on a particular spirit (animal/tree/nature/angel). Then we center our focus on the individual healings, each person will receive healing from the entire group. This is usually done through drumming with the intention of sending Love and healing energies to the person in the center. We complete the circle by drumming our gratitude and love to earth and spirit.

We are all teachers and messengers of spirit, so no level of training or ability is required. If you have a drum or rattle, please bring one with you.
