Tattvas: A Workshop on The Elemental Alchemy of the Soul

Tattvas: A Workshop on The Elemental Alchemy of the Soul

Feb 27, 7:00pm - Feb 27, 8:00pm

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

Tattvas is a Sanskrit word that means “the principles upon which all of creation rests”.
In Ayurveda, these principles are known as the five elements.

In this workshop participants will learn about the ways that the elemental energies of nature are manifested through the body and mind creating our perception and understading of reality.

The elements are forces that influences our lives on an everyday basis. Once we start to understand how fire, air, earth, water and ether are reflected in the ways we think and move, we become empowered to create the perfect alchemy of these elements within ourselves to achieve harmony, and a sense of communion with all life.

In the second portion of the workshop, we will be crafting body oil blends to support our relationship practice with the elements. We will intentionally choose oils that carry healing properties that impact the subtle mind and create a frequency of vibration that resonates with higher states of consciousness.

All materials are included.

*Please, register in advance to help us organize the supplies.

$30

The Sacred Arts Research Foundation and Golden Drum Community members have been cultivating their connection to sacred sound, chanting, mantra, folkloric and healing songs from around the world. Under the guidance and inspiration of Maestro Manuel Rufino, Taino Elder & world director of M.A.I.S.C, we have come together to create an educational platform for sacred songs to be learned.

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 our school, 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:)

Donations are welcome but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Heart of the Earth: Drum Making Ceremony

Heart of the Earth: Drum Making Ceremony

Mar 3, 11:00am - Mar 3, 10:00pm

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 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 community's 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.


REGISTRATION DEADLINE: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22.

WE NEED A FULL WEEK FOR DRUM MAKING MATERIALS TO BE MAILED TO NEW YORK SO WE CAN NOT HONOR ANY LAST MINUTE SIGN UPS.

YOUR REGISTRATION DONATION IS NON-REFUNDABLE AFTER SEPTEMBER 28.

A $40 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.

Breathwork Ceremony

Breathwork Ceremony

Mar 8, 7:30pm - Mar 8, 9:30pm

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

As radiant beings, we are made of energy. We glow with light, emitting a subtle frequency. We often go about our day to day unaware of our energy, unknowingly picking up the vibrations and projections of the world around us. When disconnected from our source energy, feelings of uneasiness can arise. Breathwork is an active meditation used to move stagnant energy and release blockages, allowing us to connect deeply with our own source vibration.

Breathing is one of our most basic and essential activities. The practice of deep, conscious breathing can aid in cleansing the mind and body of toxic build-up, allowing us to tap into our intuitive intelligence. By accessing the subconscious, the breath opens the channel to our high self, enriching our true spiritual nature while promoting feelings of joy, creativity, and overall well-being.

In the ceremony, we’ll begin with a heart expanding meditation to awaken our inner healer. We will use our breath as an experiential tool for self-exploration and healing by accessing surreal states of consciousness. With the use of essential oils and sacred herbs, I will hold space as you journey inward, channeling healing Reiki with a gentle touch.

Allow the thinking mind and mental chatter to dissolve as you explore the unknown set of a cosmically curated soundtrack. We’ll close with simple restorative movement and mantra to bring you home to the seat of the soul.

In preparation for breathwork, fasting for at least 2-3 hours before the session is recommended. Please wear comfortable clothing. Journals are strongly encouraged!

A 10-DAY ANCIENT WISDOM RETREAT

GUATEMALA

April 24 - May 3, 2018

You are invited to enter the Heart of Mayan Wisdom, a journey into ancient shamanic practices.

On this pilgrimage we will reach places where indigenous communities practice ancient ceremonies and prayers, upholding traditions which have gone uninterrupted for thousands of years.

Our journey into knowledge is focused on inner-development and self-improvement through tangible tools passed from Mayan elders. Many of these ways have been hidden away, protected from misuse by outsiders. Now with the emergence of the Age of Aquarius, profound knowledge from the Mayan people is being unveiled. The Mayan tradition is founded on the manifestation of spirit in the natural world. Plants, animals, minerals, the four elements, the cosmos, and everything found in the natural world plays an important role in Mayan ceremonies and daily life.

If you would like to attend and learn more about this trip please fill out our form by clicking the PRE-REGISTRATION LINK:

docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc1u3LgcbGnwlCkEC0ZbI1GuBFlATxxZkqPkRgosMNHq5awGQ/viewform?c=0&w=1

The sites of our pilgrimage are a direct manifestation of this spirit-nature worldview. Our trip will be centered at the Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, a spiritual hub for Mayan wisdom. Many of our activities will happen here and we will also travel to sacred sites throughout the region where we will participate in ceremonies.

Together with the Mayan elders we will participate in a number of traditional Mayan ceremonies and practices, including:

Mayan Fire Ceremony

To the Mayan People, the sacred fire is a living manifestation of spirit and responds to our offerings and prayers. We will participate in these ceremonies at ancient sites throughout the region.

Cacao Ceremony

The sacred cacao plant has been used as a sacrament by the Mayan people since ancient times, and in ceremony it carries the power to cleanse and purify. In addition to participating in cacao ceremonies, we will learn about the traditional uses of cacao and how to prepare it for ceremonial use.

Temazcal (Sweat Lodge)

In many native traditions throughout the Americas, every home has a temazcal, a earthen chamber used for sweat lodge ceremonies. The sweat lodge is used for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing. The Mayan people have a unique approach to the sweat lodge ceremony and we will participate in and learn the wisdom of this practice.

Mayan Yoga and Meditation

Over many thousands of years the Mayan people have developed an equivalent to the yoga of India. Through postures, exercises and meditations, these practices aim to connect us to the spirit realm and help us to find long lasting health and happiness.

Additionally, we will be immersed into traditional healing arts such as the Mayan massage, Mayan plant medicines to address all healing conditions, tobacco healing, tobacco divination and more. Vegetarian food will be provided for all meals and a translator will facilitate the transmission of information from Spanish to English.
