Join us in a Sacred Sound Journey for the Full Beavers's Moon. We will take some time to connect within, reflect upon what we have brought to fruition, shed what no longer serves us, and receive guidance. You will be invited to lie down (savasana style) to receive the ethereal and meditative sounds and vibration of crystal singing bowls, koshi chimes, soothing vocals, and other instruments.
This is a powerful but gentle sound experience. There will be an initial guided meditation and then you'll be given an opportunity to surrender inward while receiving the healing waves of sound
and reiki energy via distance transmission.
We'll close our circle with an opportunity to share your reflections.
We recommend bringing a few items that may contribute to your comfort and relaxation such as a pillow and/or meditation cushion, a yoga mat, a blanket, and an eye mask.
We believe in cultivating Brave Space, and this Circle is open to everyone.
$10 - I Nourish Myself
$15 - I Move with Curiosity
$20 - I Move with Warmth
$25 - I Move Spaciously
Please give what feels aligned and expansive for you. Your gift is an energetic exchange received with deep gratitude as we share this sacred experience together, and it will also help cover the cost of cacao + space rental.
This is a Brave Space where everyone is welcome. If our suggested donations are not
accessible for you, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon registration, each participant will have the option to choose what you can pay and contribute to a scholarship fund to maintain accessibility for all who feel called to join us in conscious community.
Each circle will have limited space to maintain intimacy and COVID safety.
"Ceremony is a sacred gathering in deep presence where we are showing up as ourselves, in our truest, most authentic expression. Sacred sound ceremony brings us together in a common intention and invites Spirit to be present with us. Opening and holding a sacred space in this way invites an opportunity for deep transformation to take place with our bodies, minds, and spirits. Sound ceremony, then, is the gathering in reverence and presence of sound." -Jayananda James Roland
Sound healing therapy creates a vibrational atmosphere that relaxes the nervous system and allows you to enter into a theta brain state where the body can begin to restore and repair itself. Being in this meditative state promotes a sense of peace and wellbeing and has been known to reduce stress and release trauma. It is a sacred container where you are invited to open your heart, connect with your intuition, and tune into the frequencies of love, gratitude, and joy.
Jenn Gaudreau is a soul embodiment photographer, personal branding coach, womxn’s circle facilitator, reiki practitioner, cacao ceremony spaceholder, and a carrier of sacred sound. She is currently a student of a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and has returned to school to complete her education in the field of psychology. Her work involves creating an empowering space for womxn to show up authentically and embody their truth, their radiance, and their power to capture their essence in a beautiful soul portrait. She also uses the vibration of music and voice along with reiki and cacao to create experiences that promote relaxation, restoration, heart opening, and emotional healing. She is interested in the ways mindfulness and spiritual practice can help individuals live out their own personal narratives more vibrantly and contribute to a life of flourishing, wellbeing, and social change for the collective.
Our ceremony will combine many different elements that have been passed on to me from several sacred lineages It is my intention to honor their source with the utmost respect, and I share these practices with permission and blessing from elders in these ancient traditions. I have been trained in a 100 Hour Yoga Alliance certified Sacred Sound & Cacao ceremony training that includes elements of yoga and mantra, completed a New Moon Womxn's Circle Facilitator training in the tradition of the Wild Woman Archetype, received my Reiki Level II attunement, and have had the gift of sitting with and learning from indigenous medicine carriers in Central America.
•Please bring a blanket, yoga mat (to lie on), an eye mask and anything else you need to make your experience comfortable. We'll be sitting up for some of the time, but during the sound ceremony portion, I will invite you to lie down so you can relax and receive the effects of sound, and reiki.
•Traditionally we wear all white to ceremonies; you may choose to do this, or you may want to wear something colorful, flowy and/or ceremonial. Yoga clothes are also completely appropriate! Most importantly, wear something that feels very comfortable, and dress in layers in case your temperature fluctuates.
•You may experience shifts in temperature, buzzing, tingling, or waves of emotions. You may feel absolutely nothing. All of this is normal. I will be holding space for you to experience whatever arises.
•You may also want to bring a special item for our altar: a crystal, a mala, a candle, or another personal item that holds significance for you.
•When you enter The Collective, you will first check in. Please enter the main ceremony area quietly. Jenn will use ceremonial palo santo to smudge (cleanse your aura). If you have an allergy, or simply prefer not to be smudged, please let me know beforehand!
