A Tapestry of Healing Experiences
The event kicks off on Friday, September 15th, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., with a mesmerizing New Moon Cacao Ceremony and Gong Sound Bath led by the enchanting Danielle Mercurio. This evening ceremony will guide participants through a soulful connection with their desires, making use of cacao’s heart-opening properties and the cleansing vibrations of the gong sound bath. It’s a ritual of self-care and intention-setting that will set the tone for the weekend ahead.
As the sun rises on Saturday, September 16th, a Sound Bath Oasis awaits from 9 to 10 a.m., led by Callie Adams of Internally Zen. The ethereal tones of rainbow crystal sound bowls will wash over you, renewing your spirit and enveloping your entire being in a cocoon of blissful energy. Dr. Jessica Caruso herself will complement the experience with Reiki Energy Healing, enhancing the restoration of your chakras.
The journey of self-expression continues at 10:30 a.m. with the New Moon Mandala Art Therapy workshop, guided by the talented Courtney Chandler of Hearts For Hope Therapy.
