What we're about

May 2021 COVID-19 UPDATE: In 2020 an email was sent out to Awakening Asheville advising all in-person meetups should be postponed or moved to virtual attendance only.

Please direct question/concerns to the contact listed on the event if you need need more information. Thank you, and be well! Courtney

We are an LGBTQ+ BIPOC safe spiritual group that enjoys the coming together of community lightworkers sharing our journeys. We offer meditations, healing energy, and many different workshops. Come join us!

We welcome everyone and encourage all to share their expertise and offerings. If you have an event or gathering you wish to share, please contact the group organizer for postings. There is no charge to post, but in exchange for being able to promote for free, we encourage event hosts to offer something at no cost at some point, so the knowledge and spiritual expansion of this group can be available to all regardless of their finances.

Virtual Sound Bath Meditation

Virtual/Online

Hosted by Samantha Jordan
Tune in for an hour of total relaxation and rejuvanation for the mind, body, and spirit with sound bath meditation.

About this Event
Join Samantha Lynn, owner of Soulflully Unique Lifestyle Brand in the comfort of your own home, for a transformational 60-minute sound meditation journey, where you will be wrapped in a BLANKET OF HEALING SOUNDS and vibrations from chakra crystal bowls. Sound baths are a form of meditation using the sounds of crystal bowls that when played, create vibrations that align with frequencies that exist within our own bodies, helping to bring the body back into a state of homeostasis, balancing mind, body, and spirit. You will unblock stagnation, reach a deep state of relaxation, calmness, let go of stress and anxiety, and enter into deeper states of meditation. When purchasing your ticket you will receive instructions with a Zoom link to join the event. If you don't see the link and info after purchasing your tickets, please email [masked] and I will happily send it your way again. Looking forward to our time together!

What to expect:
We’ll breathe together with pranayama to bring us into our bodies and the present moment, use a mantra to open our hearts, and experience a guided meditation to expand our minds. From this place of calibration, we’ll relax into the high vibes of a sound bath to experience deep relaxation and restoration.

What you will need:
***Access to a phone or laptop to log into the experience
***Download the Zoom.us app to participate
***Find a quiet comfy space where you can sit for meditation and lay down for the sound immersion. Also, a mat to lay down and a blanket to keep you warm.
***Headphones to enhance the experience and reduce external distractions
***Wear something loose and comfy that you can relax in. You may also want to use an eye covering of some kind, dim your lights, and/or light a candle or incense -- whatever will help you relax. If possible, try to avoid eating a full meal and drinking caffeine an hour before we meet.

Bio:
Samantha Jordan has dedicated herself to the practice, study, and teaching of yoga since discovering its joys and benefits in 2018. After 15 years, Samantha was having health issues and was extremely tired of the stress of the corporate world and wanted a deeper purpose. She started practicing meditation and yoga classes to ease stress and discomfort in her body. After eight months of practicing meditation and yoga consistently, Samantha felt peaceful, healthier, and relaxed. Convinced that living a holistic life helps you become attuned with one’s spirituality to a higher source; Samantha transitioned her whole life and left the field of public relations. She became a certified (RYT) yoga and sound bath meditation teacher, and a reiki practitioner. She started her own business, Soulfully Unique Lifestyle Brand in 2015 that offers yoga classes, meditation classes, sound bath healing sessions, reiki healing sessions, holistic products (sage sticks, intentional candles, yoni steam seat, crystals, plant-based body butters, and more). Ms. Jordan is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, and volunteers at multiple community centers to offer free yoga classes. She creates a safe, non-competitive space for her students to practice yoga and meditation on and off the mat in their daily lives. Her classes offer creative sequences with intentional themes, emphasizing the importance of proper alignment, pranayama breathing techniques, mindfulness, and meditation. Modification and advanced options are made available for new students and experienced yogis so that all can reach their potential. She is honored to teach yoga and meditation, helping to bring balance, awareness, health, and happiness into other's lives.
