Date: Saturday, Oct. 13th, 6:30-8:00
To celebrate BookHouse's first public event we are offering reduced ticket prices!
Zdenka will begin the evening by leading Kirtan, a call and response chanting that is fun and playful. This chanting is also a deeply relaxing and devotional practice that can help us to feel more connected to our Self and open us up to a wider and more subtle intimacy with the reality we live in. The healing vibrations of the mantra are something everyone can participate in how ever they feel called to. You can sing along, bring a drum or other instruments, or just relax and listen. Don’t worry if don’t know Sanskrit, we will have copies of the chants for you! We look forward to sharing time and space with you all and welcome you to show up however you are. No experience in necessary.
Kylee will end the evening with a guided iRest Yoga Nidra meditation, iRest is a form of meditation based on ancient yogic teachings made accessible for modern day life. This meditation can be practiced by anyone, long-term meditators or someone who has never practiced meditation. Through this practice we are able to tap into parts of the brain that allow for greater insight and quiet the parts of the brain that are responsible for negative thoughts, feelings, and sensations. Using meditation, people can learn to welcome life as it is, learning to respond- not react- to it’s challenging situations.
A yoga mat if you have one, to use during meditation, we have a few for loan at the studio.
A drum or instrument if you have to play along with Zdenka
