Vibrational Healing Sound Bath

Summer Solstice Sound Bath Meditation (NUDE)

Summer Solstice Sound Bath (NUDE)
June 14th 2013

Sixth Street Community Center
638 E 6th St. Ste B, New York, New York 10009

The word Solstice comes from the Latin word “sol sistere” which means “sun stand still”.The sun indeed seems to stand still, making this day the longest day of the year. Many in the northern hemisphere celebrate this day, for the sun brings life to plants that nourish us, while it’s energy warms and heals our bodies, hearts and souls.

During our pre-Solstice meditation, we will acknowledge the life-giving energy of the Sun and honor our connection with Gaia. We will activate our chakras and circulate energy throughout our bodies through guided imagery, breath work and waves of sound vibrational healing including didgeridoo, singing bowls, ocean drum and Native American flute. These vibrations help to remove blockages on an emotional, physical and spiritual level.

Skyclad (or nude) meditation deepens your awareness of Self, enhances your ability to stay present, within the moment and allows you to experience higher states of consciousness.

Evan Worldwind – Didgeridoo

Zen Marie Holmes – Tibetan Singing Bowls

John Dodge – Flute

COST: $20 online; $25 at the door

Sunsport Gardens is a beautiful family naturist/nudist resort located 20 minutes west of West Palm Beach. The amenities include swimming pool, sauna, whirlpool/jacuzzi, volleyball, tennis, fishing and a healthy restaurant. It is a tropical paradise and the perfect place to commune with nature within their Butterfly Garden, Sun Spirit Grove or on the nature trail.

Join a small group of like-minded individuals and learn Tantric techniques within a respectful, warm, loving and sacred space.

These Tantric Techniques transform love-making and sensual massage into a meditation between lovers during which the energy of the giver and the receiver is harmonized, deepening your connection, heightening your senses and increasing sensual pleasure.

Learn Tantric Breathing Techniques and Meditations that awaken the senses and prepare the body for erotic touch.

  • Learn how to stimulate the erogenous zones of the body.
  • Learn step by step Tantric Yoni and Lingam massage techniques.
  • Learn how to consciously give and receive pleasure without expectation.

Learn how to activate the chakras and circulate healing sexual energy throughout your body.

Come experience the healing vibrations of the didgeridoo and singing bowl during the Zensual Yoga and Zensual Meditation workshops.

Sound Vibrational Healing

During these workshops your body is inundated with vibrations of various frequencies. These vibrations help to activate your chakras and stimulate the movement of energy throughout the body, removing blockages on an emotional, physical and spiritual level.

In our Zensual Kitchen workshop you will learn to prepare exotic aphrodisiacs and healthy vegetarian, raw and live food meals that not only increase your sex drive but also nourish your mind, body and spirit.

You will also be able to create a deep connection with you body, spirit and inner child through sensual movement workshops including Zensual Dance and Belly Dance. And our evening outdoor Drum Circle is the perfect place to apply what you’ve learned as we let the drum rhythms move us in eclectic and ecstatic dance around a bonfire.

The retreat begins with an introduction to Tantra and a Snuggle Party during which you are introduced various forms of non-sexual touch and instructed in ways to communicate your feelings and desires in a healthy way.

The highlight of the retreat is the Sacred Tantric Ritual, during which we combine yoga, meditation and massage into a harmonious, blissful and divine ceremony of connecting with our higher selves, activating our heart chakras & giving and receiving love & healing energy.

Zen Marie Holmes is the founder of Zensuality and the Co-founder of The Artist Dream. She is also a NY State Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki practitioner with 17 years of experience, a professional dancer and dance instructor with over 20 years of experience, and a certified yoga instructor with 10 years of experience.

Active Naturists Review

Check out this review of Zensual Yoga by our friend Kirill on his great Naturist Blog:

http://activenaturists.net/2013/03/12/zensual-yoga-in-new-york/

I think New York wouldn’t be New York without some naked yoga classes. In fact, well before moving here, just when I got interested in naturism I got across Hot Nude Yoga videos of Aaron Star school and tried to follow those at home in Moscow and later in Berlin. Now this school is in Hawaii, as far as I know, but luckily, there are new options in New York City, and clearly there is a demand for it.

When: Friday March 22nd 2013 6:15PM-7:15PM

Zensual Dance is a celebration of feminine energy. The energy that flows within every woman and man. Zensual Dance combines graceful, flowing arm and upper body movements, hip rotations and undulations and breathing exercises that balance and release the sexual energy in the root chakra.

Fun and playful movements will allow your sexual energy to rise towards your heart chakra and permeate your entire being creating a space for you to experience joy and love more deeply. Connecting with your sexual energy will allow you to feel comfortable with your body and your inner sensual being will radiate outwardly.
The class is a fusion of Congolese, Haitian and Contemporary dance and will be accompanied by live drumming.
