Gong Meditation Workshop with David Martin
A gong bath meditation is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system and serves as a facilitator to break up emotional, physiological and spiritual blockages. Sound and music are nutrients for the nervous system. The gong can empower health, learning and productivity. The gong resonates all 30 trillion cells of the body!
This meditation utilizes various Kundalini yoga practices, breathing techniques (pranayama) and chanting of healing mantras to prepare the mind and body for
Meditation. Sound is a vibration that causes resonance and rhythm in our bodies, touches us and influences our emotions like nothing else. The gong is one of the oldest therapeutic instruments.
Yoga Nidra - Some of the gong workshops will add Yoga nidra which is a practice that can take you to a relaxed body, fluid mind, and supercharged intuition. It incorporates meditation on the breath, the balancing of emotional states, visualization and self-healing. It is said that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep. Yoga nidra is translated as "yogic sleep." This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light pratyahara with four of his or her senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi.
The practice of yoga relaxation has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain respond well. It has been used to help soldiers from war cope with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
This workshop is appropriate for beginners and advanced.

Sacred Crystal Communication: How to Talk to Rocks
with Amy Mermaid Isakov, Pachakuti Mesa Carrier
Gathering around the Pachakuti Mesa(sacred shamanic altar), we will open beautiful and safe space to listen in new and profound ways to the spirit of socalled ‘inanimate’ objects.
Amy Mermaid Isakov is a tech savvy and innovative dreamer passionate about connection, spirituality, music, ritual arts, and how the Divine can manifest in all its forms. Having left the traditional education path, she has studied in-depth with shamans, bodyworkers, evolutionary thought leaders, and green builders since 2001. She is a Pachakuti Mesa carrier, writer, teacher, singer, and mother — among other things.
What is The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition?
“Pachakuti” means “world reversal” and refers to the time of transformation we are living now. A mesa is an altar for self-exploration, transformation and personal growth in which we create a new paradigm of one’s relation to the Self and the Universe. This tradition, in all its richness, is an evolving practice of inner and outer activities that restore balance and harmony to our relationships with All That Is.

Why do I need purification?
Purification, also known as detoxification, can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight. We are exposed to external toxins on a daily basis. These include pollutants, pesticides, and chemicals. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened. Purification offers your body additional support to expel and metabolize these toxins and manage weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality. Toxins can contribute to a wide range of conditions:
- Stuffy head
- Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
- Indigestion and other temporary gastrointestinal upset
- Food cravings and weight gain
- Reduced mental clarity
- Low libido
- Skin that’s not looking its best
- Joint discomfort
