RAW Chocolate Making CLASS with Jerry Moon Murtagh

RAW Chocolate Making CLASS with Jerry "Moon" Murtagh

May 21, 3:00pm - May 21, 6:00pm

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

Join us for a fun and delicious afternoon learning the basics of raw chocolate preparation with Jerry "Moon" Murtagh, founder and chief chocolatier of Moonlight Chocolate. In this workshop you will learn how to make your own homemade gourmet, raw chocolate and go home with delights to share.

Raw chocolate opens the heart and brings warm feelings of positivity, creativity, and joy. As a natural antidepressant, cacao contains anadamide "the bliss molecule" and phenethylamine which triggers the release of endorphins. It is rich in magnesium, which is a necessary nutrient for heart health. Cacao, from which all chocolate is made, is world-renowned for its heart-opening properties and heavenly taste.

In this hands-on class, you will:

-Learn how to make gourmet raw chocolate in your own kitchen
-Understand the health benefits of raw chocolate, the heart-opening properties of cacao, and "tools of the trade" secrets for handcrafting pure yumminess!
-Taste each of the organic and raw ingredients and craft them into fine chocolate
-Create your own box of chocolate hearts for yourself or someone special

No prior experience is necessary. Participants will leave with the knowledge of how to make the most amazing chocolate at home and their own box of chocolate hearts. Additional ingredients, chocolates, and professional molds will be available for purchase.

Class cost: $35.00

Jerry "Moon" Murtagh is the founder of Moonlight Chocolate, a raw, organic Chocolate company based out of New York City. He is a member of the Golden Drum Community and a longtime student of Maestro Manuel Rufino. A raw and vegan/vegetarian chef, Moon has practiced his culinary skills at many fine restaurants and retreats.

CANCELED - Heart Of The Earth :: Drum Making Ceremony w/ Dream Seed

CANCELED - Heart Of The Earth :: Drum Making Ceremony w/ Dream Seed

May 20, 10:00am - May 20, 8:00pm

Golden Well Farm & Apiaries
1089 River Rd
New Haven, VT  05472 Map

The drum is a sacred instrument that invokes the heart and speaks a universal language. Its rhythmic heartbeat is at the center of ceremonies held by people all over the world. The shamanic drum is used to communicate with the Spirit and to connect our hearts with the heartbeat of the Earth. It is a powerful medicine that heals the body, heart, mind, and spirit.

In this workshop we will come together in a sacred space to create our own ceremonial drums and learn a frame drum-tying technique that we received from our communities spiritual leader and elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino.

We will be making one-sided hand drums, using wooden frames made of maple and elk, buffalo or deer hide, and sinew.

**In this special class we will give our students the option of dying their hide in natural indigo dye. You do not need to dye your drum, but please do notify us if you would like to do this.

The creation of the drum is a prayer and a ceremony in itself. We will work with our drums as a visioning meditation for our lives and our paths, so that our thoughts and intentions remain in a high vibration as we create the drums and through that process they become part of the drums. During that time we will share and listen to sacred songs from different Native traditions. Making your own personal drum is a sacred journey and the power of making something like this with your own hands is incredible, it becomes an extension of your own heart & mind.

COST: $275 for 16" drum or $295 for 18" drum

***A $35 additional cost collected the day of class if the student decides to indigo dye their hide. Please let us know if you would like to do this.***

REGISTRATION ENDLINE: THURSDAY, MAY 11TH

Please PayPal your full amount with a note informing us of which size and type hide you prefer.

Light Body

Light Body

May 17, 7:00pm - May 17, 8:30pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

How often do you move your body in ways that actually feel good to you... gentle, freeing, intuitive, non-static motion? Giant circular movements like the spiral arms of the galaxy. Stomping rhythms onto the ground with each foot print being like a blessing for the earth.

No alcohol. No dark night club. No seedy crowd. This dance is about light. It's about your light, and our light. It's about the light we co-create for the world by bringing conscious movement to life. About being awake, aware, willing to activate and heal, to let things go, to build an energy, to open your heart and connect to the heart of humanity.

Dancing is the perfect way to kick things up and turn things around. It roots you into the present moment. Whether you dance to break a sweat, express yourself, have a laugh, for exercise, for the sheer joy of it, or to shake something off. Incredible healing takes place through ecstatic movement.

Each class begins with a ritual card meditation from the Love Letters to Earth Oracle Deck. A wonderful body opening warm up to activate the muscles and joints for safe movement. A series of core strengthening exercise to stabilize your center. Curated songs to move, heal, connect, and break a sweat to - each one offered to a suggestion focus. The Light Body practice is sealed with gentle yoga and a guided Yoga Nidra Meditation.

It's a one stop shop to radiance. Let's glow together.

Bring your favorite friend to dance with and your water bottle!

Lunation Full Moon in Scorpio Kundalini Shakti Transmission

Lunation Full Moon in Scorpio Kundalini Shakti Transmission

May 10, 7:30pm - May 10, 9:15pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

Mercury is now out of Retrograde and the Scorpio Full Moon is bringing intensity, passion, power, control and depth to go deeper. Full Moon energy can be felt and is the strongest 3 days before and after. Scorpio, when in higher vibrations, can be deep, transformative, strategic, loving, and generous with no room for superficiality. At a lower vibration, Scorpio energy is controlling, manipulative, jealous, obsessive, vengeful, deceitful, and overly suspicious. Scorpio is known for pushing transformation through the process of death and rebirth. Full Moons like to stir things up for us to be real with what needs to happen for us to evolve in our higher light.

During this Lunation we will use this transformative energy to go deeper into ourselves with Kundalini as taught by Yogi Bhajan and a special Full Moon ritual to cleanse negativity that is self-sabotaging to our growth progress.

*Please bring a Journal and something sacred for the altar if you feel called.

Mantra Sadhana: Meditation, Breath, Chanting and Ritual

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

“You are a cosmic flower. Om chanting is the process of opening the psychic petals of that flower.” ― Amit Ray

Chanting mantra is an ancient technique known for its ability to evoke movement of the physical and emotional energy that we hold in our bodies. The vibrations and sounds of mantra are considered extremely important, and thus reverberations of those sounds are said to awaken kundalini, our spiritual life force.

When we awaken these forces we encounter our divine essence and all becomes possible.

Participants will be guided through an immersive and ecstatic communal experience through the application of mantra ritual, guided meditation, breathing techniques and kirtan. Participants should dress comfortably with the ability to both move and sit with ease.

$10-$20 suggested donation. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

It’s time to embrace Mother Earth under the New Moon in Taurus during this Lunation. New Moons are a time for renewal and this is the perfect New Moon to reflect on our Spiritual progress. Venus turned direct on April 15th. Venus, the planet that rules Taurus, may have brought up things for us to look at regarding relationships with others and ourselves or what needs to be examined or let go. Venus officially started to move forward on May 18th. During this New Moon we have the opportunity to set intentions for our growth by evaluating the real worth and value of people and things in our life (Taurus-Libra) issues. Mercury stationed retrograde in Taurus until May 3rd makes this a powerful New Moon for grounding, processing our emotions and healing.

During Lunation we will open up space to reset through a clear head and open heart through Kundalini as taught by Yogi Bhajan. We will ground ourselves with a sacred New Moon ritual to plant our intentions that are aligned with our higher self while letting go of stagnant energy that keeps us from vibrating higher.

*Please bring a journal and something sacred for the altar if you feel called.

Subtle Body Butoh (2 Day Workshop)

Subtle Body Butoh (2 Day Workshop)

Apr 22, 1:00pm - Apr 23, 4:00pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

April 22, Saturday, 1-4pm:
This workshop will take participants into a hidden subtle mind/body space in order to discover personal somatic artistry. Adam Koan and Rita Soma use various personal butoh research elements as well as influences from renowned butoh teachers such as Rhizome Lee (India), Yumiko Yoshioka and Tadashi Endo (Germany), Ken Mai (Finland), and Diego Piñón (Mexico). Every participant will learn a sample of exercises and perspectives as they relate to shamanic motifs.

April 23, Sunday, 1-4pm:
We will research varying manifestations of the five elements which are useful for butoh dance and applicable to daily life. Butoh is a contemporary Japanese dance form that began after World War II. Based on the elements, we will encounter our relationship to balance and lack thereof. We will also explore our natural resonance to each element, learning what elements we have a natural harmony with and which ones we need to establish better relationships with in our lives.

BIO
Adam Koan is a half Colombian, half Venezuelan-American who was raised in the small town of Belleview, Florida. He is an international butoh performer/teacher who resonated with the dance form after identifying multiple shamanic elements within it. He is a classically trained dancer and studied butoh in the Indian Himalayas in,Chicago and has taken several intensives/workshops from butoh masters internationally.

Butoh is a Japanese dance form that began as a reaction to a post-World War II-stricken Japan. Underground Japan desired a new dance form mirroring the times, and a dance they could claim as their own. A rebellious form of movement spawned which widened the sphere of what could be considered dance. The key motivator of the movement is one’s own darkness (shadows, hangups, Jungian repressions), so inherently, the dance transcends mere entertainment value and establishes itself as a dance for the psyche itself.

Price: $30 for one or $50 for both

ROUND ART: A Meditation with Mantra, Music, and Mandalas

ROUND ART: A Meditation with Mantra, Music, and Mandalas

Apr 18, 7:00pm - Apr 18, 9:00pm

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

We live in a vibrational universe. Music, Mantra, and Mandalas have long been utilized by healers, wisdom keepers, and sages to express the fundamental nature of space and time. Stand alone, each of these practices is a deep study of our personal and collective unconscious and consciousness.

Used in harmony with one another and in a group setting, the synergy of Mantra, Meditation, Music, and Mandala building becomes a unique way to activate healing, enhance clarity, creativity, and boost connectedness.

We will begin this event with an invocation, introduction, and bonding. We will practice chanting and sitting in silence with the resonance we co-create through sound, then move into building a flower mandala to live music.

Weather permitting, we will carry our mandala to the river and offer the fruits of our meditation and collective prayer to the waters of New York City.

Flowers and other treats will be provided for the mandala, but we encourage you to contribute your favorite plant leaves or petals with. We would love for you to bring your personal voice and vision into the tapestry we are weaving!

Please bring your favorite flowers for our first session.
$25.00

Astrology and the Art of Healing with AT Mann

Astrology and the Art of Healing with AT Mann

Apr 15, 11:00am - Apr 15, 6:00pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

Using the dating system of Life Time Astrology, the birth chart often shows when critical health problems were and are likely to originate during one’s life. It also provides clues to their re-balancing. In Life Time Astrology the influences from conception, through gestation until birth may be subsequently discovered and worked with. Often psychotherapy and other more emotional or physical forms of therapy can be creatively combined to effect centering and support the healing process.

Our important inner and outer events can be dated accurately by using a transparent overlay of a unique time scale and the physical and psychological interpretation of those events is “Your Story”. Our life unfolds in four ‘octaves’ of development. Gestation is our genetic and karmic inheritance in the creation of our physical body within our mother. Childhood begins with Birth and describes the creation of our personality and emotional body within our family system. Maturity describes our relationships with partners and the world as we create a mental body. Transcendence is our ability to reach beyond ourselves to empower a higher, transpersonal reality.

In the workshop, we will introduce Life Time Astrology in such a way that enables one to identify health issues, their planetary correspondences, and even a general key recommending therapies for work on deep seated life issues and their resultant problems. Using a Wheel of Therapies, shows correlations of healing mechanisms with stages of the life process.

*** Send your birth chart data in advance to atmann@atmann.net. This includes name, date, time and place of birth. ***

There will be a lunch break and a tea break during the class.
