Nada Yoga Workshop
Sliding Scale Suggested Donation: $20-30
Nada Yoga, the yoga of sound, was not only one of the earliest forms of Yoga but may also be the most powerful. Like the postures of Hatha Yoga affect our perception of movement, body and sense of self, Nada Yoga also affects are perception of consciousness, reality, and self.
Sound, the vibrations we perceive with our ears, as well as our bodies, has unlimited potential for helping us realize harmony on this planet.
This is frankly the heARTbeat Collective's premier annual event. This gathering is so profound, so beautiful, that it has shaped a community. It has reignited passions for so many talented people, reclaiming inspiration, and has shown an alternative way to co-exist that many of us have stopped dreaming about long ago.
Amazing teachers, inspired dancing, drumming, music making, singing, the honoring of life, of each other, of the plants and the animals, of ourselves as survivors. Reclaiming our beauty and the knowing that we were born to live creatively.
This sacred gathering is a rite of passage, a journey into a magical co-created all night ritual, that may just change your life, as it has changed so many.
We'll be around the fire 5 nights, 3 all night fire circles with a shortened night on both ends to open us into the magic and help us integrate in celebration before returning to our daily lives.
The gathering begins on a Tuesday this year and goes until Monday. We open the doors again for late arrivers on Thursday. If you can do the entire thing, we suggest it, as it it designed to be a more gentle and profound experience this way. Those of you that can't, the rest of us will be there to welcome you in on Thursday, helping your transition in be a special one.
This two-day workshop will begin by delving into the mystic path of Sacred Sexuality. We will learn about Sexuality’s expressions through the different spiritual traditions across the ages. Topics include Daoist and Hindu forms of Tantra Yoga, foundational concepts, different approaches -- restrictive and expansive, and a taste of what tantric practices are all about. We will inspect how various religions differ in their innate outlook of life and sexuality, orgasms, and so much more!
Friday, July 29th, 7:00pm-9:00pm - Sacred Sexuality: Introduction to Tantra
Join us for another day of Cob Wall building! An experience for those willing to get dirty, an ancient, sustainable building technique that is experiencing a revival across the country! Great fun with the community. Bring a change of clothes and a clean towel. We will be making batches of "dough" and bricks from clay, subsoil and straw all day. Come play in the mud and help us shape our sanctity for future gatherings.

Vocal Freedom: Joanna Chapman-Smith
This class is designed to take you through a set of exercises developed to build your voice from the ground up to be healthy and move with ease. Producing the voice requires a series of fine motor skills, so repetition is essential to the ease and fluency of these skills, and a good warm-up is the key. As we invite the body to move step-by-step, old patterns can be side-stepped and muscle tension can often slide away allowing for a freedom and ease of vocal production. It is with this freedom and ease that we can truly open up and sing! >"Read More"
Core Energetics Process Group: Has been called the bridge between psychology and spirituality. Core Energetics, based on the belief that all emotions and issues are stored in the body, synthesizes your feelings and your consciousness by way of the body. Movements that cause muscles to vibrate (shake) and energy to flow are used to access and undo rigid patterns of being that block us from being our complete selves.
