Join Zen Gems Saturday, January 14 from 6-8:30pm for a special Gather + Flow. January’s theme will focus on new beginnings, self reflection, and the power of the yogic concept of “sankalpa” or inspired intention. We will be exploring the ancient ritual of the salt bowl ceremony to mark the potency of this new cycle - a way to create a collective intention. (*see details below).
In each monthly Gather + Flow, we come together for a soulful evening around a special theme. You will be lead through calming practices + discussions that draw wisdom from nervous system healing, breathwork + meditation, + yoga philosophy. We will have the opportunity to reflect, hold space + engage in meaningful sharing in a supportive, non-judgmental environment; followed by an embodiment yoga practice; therapeutic movements + longer yin holds to encourage you to move mindfully, listen in, let go, + breathe deep into all that you feel, so that you may feel more calm, empowered + connected as you re-enter the flow of your life.
* Please bring something to add to symbolize your intentions (essential oils, dried herbs/flowers, something from nature). Each of us will take home a share of this powerful creation to use as you like (as bath salts, on you sacred space, to inspire your meditation, etc).
