Family Constellations with Debra Franklin

Sep 23, 10:00am - Sep 23, 1:30pm

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

Family Constellations was developed by Bert Hellinger during his observation of Zulu tribes. It is an effective way to transform what is holding you back so that you can live your life from your greatest potential. They uncover and dissolve the blockages affecting your relationships, finances, profession, and health so you are free to live the fulfilling life you were really meant to live.

You are about to embark on a soul journey. Are you ready?

Some of the Benefits of Family Constellations:
- Improving your relationships (parents, partner, children, colleagues, etc.)
- Turning your past into a source of strength
- Acquiring a healing inner image of your family
- Freeing you and your descendants from invisible burdens
- Transforming your blockages and self-sabotage
- Increasing your empathy, love, and compassion for yourself and others
- Opening your heart to love

This powerful soul work assists in creating positive shifts in:
- Relationships
- Success in life
- Recurring emotions (depression, fear, anxiety, sadness, feeling unworthy or unrooted, blockages, stagnation etc.)
- Achieving life goals
- Finances
- Unexplained symptoms
- Health
- Self-sabotage
- Infertility
- Addictions etc.

"A miracle is a shift in perception", says The Course of Miracles. That is exactly what begins to happen after Family Constellations. However, that is only the beginning.

97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

Fall Equinox Celebration and Hurricane Relief Fundraiser featuring Maestro Manuel Rufino with Swami Umesh Yogi Ji, Rosalia Mowgli and more!

In response to the recent devastation created by the sudden hurricanes around the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, Golden Drum, Sacred Arts Research Foundation, and the NYC Chapter of the Universal Initiatic College are grateful to announce that our Fall Equinox Celebration will be a fundraiser to help all hurricane victims.

At this time, mother nature is speaking loudly to us and is giving us (humanity) the opportunity to awaken to a greater purpose, to come together as communities, and create ways to help alleviate the suffering and devastation that has been caused.

We will honor this special time of the Fall Equinox with a celebration to connect us with the energies that are coming through the cosmic forces as well as an opportunity for us to recognize ourselves as part of a world community who needs our collective support through this action of goodwill.

We will begin the evening with a nourishing vegan meal by the Jungle Cafe. We will then be blessed with a beautiful evening program including:

- A very special talk on "The Negative Mind and How To Deal With It, Why Shamans and Yogis Love Stress, & The Benefit of Happiness and How To Get It," with Maestro Manuel Rufino, Taino elder of the Caribbean and visionary and founder of Golden Drum & the Sacred Arts Research Foundation

- A talk with Swami Umesh Yogi from Rishikesh, India on Peace and Pollution

- A concert with master classical guitarist, vocalist and composer Rosalia Mowgli from Madrid, Spain

- A community Artisan Shamanic Market where 20% of profits will benefit the relief fund

We will close together in a circle of blessing for all who have been touched by the hurricanes.

We know that when we come together and cooperate with our resources to help causes greater than ourselves, we are able to move mountains. Please come with an open heart and a donation (the event itself is free, donations for hurricane relief are optional).

Proceeds from the event will go to organizations that are helping to alleviate the suffering hurricane victims in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean.

This event will be live-streamed, so please join us even if you are not able to attend. Watch this event live on the Golden Drum Facebook page: facebook.com/GoldenDrum.Org

Lunation Kundalini Shakti Transmission New Moon In Virgo:: Re•ac•ti•vate

Lunation is back under the guidance of the Virgo New Moon. Grounded In the Earth Element Virgo is the sign of health, fitness, and organization. The New Moon traveling through Virgo urges us to REACTIVATE or restore something to a state of activity through practicality, sensibility and stability.

With Autumnal Equinox following two days later transitioning us into the Fall through balance of equal Day and Night it's a good time to ground ourselves get back to basics or simply put purify and reactivate so we can act naturally, restore order, prioritize, strip away what doesn't matter so we can clear our heads and make things the way Mother Nature intended Sacred again.

As the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali says in the second Sutra: Yogaścittavrtti-nirodh “Yoga is the stilling of the modifications of the mind.” which is exactly what we are going to do in this Lunation so we can REACTIVATE in the change of seasons to plant roots deep into the Earth’s soil to stabilize and activate our highest intentions through Kundalini Shakti with Abhaijot Kaur, KRI and a New Moon intention Ritual to create with love. Come as you receive what you need.

Cost: $25

*Please bring a notebook and something sacred for altar Activation if called.

Lunation Kundalini Shakti Transmission - Vision - Leo New Moon

Lunation Kundalini Shakti Transmission :: VISION :: Leo New Moon Total Solar Eclipse

Eclipses are a potent time to step up our Spiritual practices. Eclipses always occur when the New Moon or Full Moon is in close proximity to one of the two Lunar Nodes.

The North Node of the Moon is in Leo which means there is new beginnings and a push towards this sign even more powerful with the New Moon being in Leo. The South Node is in Aquarius which represents where endings are trying to be facilitated associated with that sign, as well that are getting in the way of fulfilling the North Node in Leo.

Blessed with two Leo New Moons back to back we get to combine these energies during the Great American Eclipse. We have not had such a potent energy sweep across America in 100 years, while most people are looking outward at the Eclipse we know it's the time to go inward and upward during this Cosmic time.

Mercury also stationed Retrograde in Virgo until September 5th gives us another cue to SLOW it down and step inside, confirming it's a good time to be Heavily Meditated.

What change needs to be made with courage and less fear?

What is our VISION for the next 6 months?

What fuels the flame of our heart?

During this potent alignment and blessing of another Leo New Moon we will take our courage to new heights.

Join Abhaijot Kaur, KRI during this Lunation where we will combine Kundalini Shakti, breath work to cleanse our space, learn a mediation to hold our frequency and the option to carry it for 40 days (40 days breaks any negativity) followed by creating our VISIONS of the next 6 months through vision boards intention.

Vedic Healing Hands Certification

Vedic Healing Hands Certification

Aug 19, 12:00pm - Aug 20, 3:00pm

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

The moon’s cycle, in concert with the nine planets, creates the universal magnetic field. This continuum is responsible for all life and all that grows. It is through our magnetic field, the whole of physical reality continues to express itself and to be experienced. Without such a field, even the air would cease to circulate, with all else becoming motionless.

Ancient Vedic Science explains that the Earth, Moon and interplay of gravitational forces are inseparable from the microcosms within ourselves. Therefore, any increment of change to a single unit of the external universe, down to the atom, will be faithfully mirrored within.

In the study of Vedic Healing Hands with Swami Umesh Yogi Ji, we will learn to consciously reconnect with these magnetic principalities, initiating self healing in the cleansing of resistance, blockage and stagnation, while planting potent seeds for new growth.

We begin our class with lecture and explanation, moving on to a grounding meditation in preparation for the practical aspects, followed by initiation and moon mala. The workshop concludes with a Blessing of ourselves, awareness brimming in our newly cultivated hands.



COST
Students may join for one or two days. Those studying both days will receive Rishikesh School of Yoga certification.


Vedic healing Hands Certification
150.00
This price includes both 3 hour days of the training and certification from Rishikesh School of Yoga

Light Body

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!

Swami Umesh Yogi Ji of The Rishikesh School of Yoga in India will be offering his services in performing the ancient art of Puja bringing in August's full moon.


What is Puja ?
Pujas are performed to avert and clear the three types of obstacles which arise due to the lack of merit, which prevent us from achieving our worldly and spiritual goals. Removing these obstacles will help us to achieve happiness and good fortune in all our activities.

There are three types of obstacles:

Worldly obstacles:

Affecting our day to day life, relationships, business, and finances.

Inner obstacles:

Affecting mental and physical health in the form of strong emotions, confusion, and associated physical problems.

Secret obstacles:

Obstructing the attainment of wisdom, experienced as difficulties in Dharma practice.

Participants are encouraged to bring fruit or flowers in addition to a $20.00 suggested donation.

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

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth is exactly between the Sun and the Moon. It's a time of finding light in the dark. Monday’s frequency is held by the Moon, giving this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse extra spunk.

Moons bring up so much, everything and nothing a mirror that reflects everything in the world. Showing us the rays of the Sun channeled through space and time. She makes us think about darkness and light and everything in between. A Lunar Eclipse occurs when our Earth’s shadow blocks the Sun's light, which otherwise reflects off the Moon illuminating it.

Aquarius the water bearer is the server of the collective. While the Sun is stationed in Leo the sign of the self this energy brings us into a space of webbing our authentic selves into the service of the collective. What gifts are we giving during this time to serve the collective? What projects are we ready to begin? This Eclipse energy allows to move forward radically like the Aquarian nature throw ourselves into the unknown space by giving us an energetic leap. Helping us recognize that the unknown is known to us.

During this Lunation we will use Kundalini as taught by Yogi Bhajan with Abhaijot Kaur, KRI to work on our shadows so we can move authentically in a new and radical way, and a Full Moon activation helping us during the upcoming tides of Mercury Retrograde August 12th to release energetic ties that don't allow us to create and move into our Dharma. Come as you are receive what you need.

Cost: $25

*Please bring something sacred for Alter activation if called and journal for intention creation.

Heart of the Earth Drum Making Ceremony

Heart of the Earth Drum Making Ceremony

Aug 3, 10:00am - Aug 3, 7:00pm

Laurel Canyon, CA

HEART OF THE EARTH DRUM MAKING WORKSHOP

REGISTRATION CLOSES ON EVE OF WEDNESDAY, JULY 26th
It takes 6 days for the materials to ship to our location so please register by July 26th

with Shola, AJ, Brooke, & Matt
with natural plant dyes w/ special guest teacher Maria Calderon

15 Person Maximum

The drum is an ancient symbol and tool that has been used throughout the world as a means of connecting with a deeper presence of Spirit. The vibrations created by the alchemies of skin and wood reverberate a powerful medicine into the cosmos and can alter one’s consciousness in profound ways. In this workshop participants will create a beautiful hand drum and drum stick from natural materials provided by Mother Earth.

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 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, mind, and spirit.

Through the creation process, we bond with the medicine of the drum. As we infuse our energy and intentions into them, we become their caretakers. In the same way, the drums will become our teachers and our healers for as long as we walk with them on our spiritual path.

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. Together we will birth our drums and offer gratitude to the spirits who made them possible. We will use a frame drum tying technique that we received from our community's spiritual leader and elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino.

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