During this Lunation we will use Kundalini Shakti and a special Full Moon ritual to release imbalanced Cancer energy that could be causing any emotions to make us clingy, lethargic, fragile, gullible, doubtful, reactive, worrywart, fearful, moody, and panicky. To bring us into the harmonius Cancer energy that is nurturing, artistic, sensitive, empathic, intuitive, gentle, impressionable, thoughtful, and trusting.

Music is one of the deepest forms of prayer and healing that we carry with us throughout our lives. To learn, carry and sing a sacred song is an ability we all have, we simply need to tap into it. In this course, we invite you to tap into your own ability to use sacred song as a study, practice and way of prayer and expression. We will create an environment that promotes the development and learning of traditional sacred songs from all around the world. Each class will focus on a selection of songs, where we will learn the pronunciation, translation, and intention of the songs, as well as covering the melodic and rhythmic structure of singing the song.

Please bring a journal and pencil so that you may keep a record of the songs you learn. Bring a drum or rattle if you have one. All singing levels are welcome.

Please arrive 5 minutes early so we may start on time:)

Presenter Bios:

DANIEL WAPLES is truly a pioneer of the newly invented HandPan instrument and is arguably the most recognized player in his field. He is constantly travelling globally to share his passion and introduce his music to new listeners. His skills on the HandPan are self-taught, and many aspiring players often sight his technique and philosophy of composition as an inspiration. He works with different styles of music, mixing them and creating something new without it being a complete stereotype. Visit Daniel at hanginbalance.com/

DAN MULQUEEN is an American multi-percussionist from central New Jersey. His approach to the handpan has lead to a very distinct and recognizable sound that is very much on the side of beat heavy and head bouncing rhythms. His style comes from many years as a drummer of over 16 years playing in genres such as hip-hop, rock, reggae, trip hop, metal, jazz and more. You can hear phrasing and rhythmic influences from each of these genres in his handpan music. Visit Dan at www.danmulqueen.com

DANIEL WAPLES is truly a pioneer of the newly invented HandPan instrument and is arguably the most recognized player in his field. He is constantly travelling globally to share his passion and introduce his music to new listeners. His skills on the HandPan are self-taught, and many aspiring players often sight his technique and philosophy of composition as an inspiration. He works with different styles of music, mixing them and creating something new without it being a complete stereotype. Visit Daniel at hanginbalance.com/

DAN MULQUEEN is an American multi-percussionist from central New Jersey. His approach to the handpan has lead to a very distinct and recognizable sound that is very much on the side of beat heavy and head bouncing rhythms. His style comes from many years as a drummer of over 16 years playing in genres such as hip-hop, rock, reggae, trip hop, metal, jazz and more. You can hear phrasing and rhythmic influences from each of these genres in his handpan music. Visit Dan at www.danmulqueen.com

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

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.

The mantras to be chanted throughout each evening will align with various aspects according to astrological alignments and the collective need given the time we live in.

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

The full moon is in information gathering Gemini.The sun is in Sagittarius seeker of truth. Gemini uses information to explore possibilities, Sagittarius to find meaning. At their convergence we can find wisdom, a new view, old perceptions completely blown out of the water, firmly held beliefs dissolved. The cost of truth often comes with a loss of illusions. What illusions can you release in the illumination of this full moon? And are you prepared to give up the illusions that are not true? Full Moons are a time where you can feel challenged by the energy of two opposite signs.

In this case it is the polarity of Sagittarius and Gemini. Full Moons are a time where you can feel challenged by the energy of two opposite signs. In this case it is the polarity of Sagittarius and Gemini. Gemini is an Air sign, commonly associated with communicating and information sharing. It is an intellectual sign and loves information from multiple sources, the ultimate student. Sagittarius is a fire sign ruled by Jupiter. It wants to explore, seek truth, teach, and expand in perspective and experience through travel or spiritual experiences. Therefore, during this Full Moon period we are experiencing this polarity being played out. It is the dance between the ‘facts’ and ‘higher perspectives.’

Join Abhaijot Kaur, KRI as we use Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and a sacred Full Moon Ritual to unveil the illusions under this Full Moon.

*Please bring Notebook/ Journal and something scared for the altar if you feel called.

Cost: $25

Teacher Bio

Inoshi Denizen is an Energy Wellness Practitioner, Perceptual Guide, and founder of Open Tai Chi and Unu, an East-West informed pan-cultural wellness community based in NYC of which he is the principal instructor. His credentials include multiple modalities, which he has combined into distinctive practice areas, providing safe, sensitive energy wellness therapy and guidance to numerous clients.

Inoshi appreciates and rests in a sense and sensibility of a free soul. He teaches from a place of refined creativity and encourages people to be open and adaptable, and to release their "isms".

He recognizes many teachers: from individuals, to life itself and what comprises it, atmospheres, cultures, energies, contexts, situations, entities, and other nodes of existence. Everything conceivable, and not, allows itself as a sharing point to our experience and understanding.

Many of his animate teachers have likewise been free souls who crossed paths and imparted their aesthetic, artistry, skill, resonance and vibration. Bohemian ~ Zen in nature, Inoshi suggests that any investigation into discipline must inevitably lead to play and interdependent freedom (instead of isolative freedom and restriction).
