Increase Health and Peace for Your Body/Mind with Ayurveda

Join Cheryl Schirillo-Johnson on Zoom for this interactive, intro class about how you can easily use powerful practices from the ancient healing science of Ayurveda to: - Strengthen your immune system - Calm your mind and emotions - Gently remove toxins from your body - Walk in Harmony with Nature You’ll learn about seasonal foods and herbs to eat for your body type (Dosha), and how specific yoga asanas, easy mindfulness practices, and time in Nature can help you move from anxiety, fear and overwhelm into a state of calm wellbeing, peace and acceptance. Ayurveda is perhaps the world's oldest holistic/whole-body healing science for mind, body and spirit. It was developed thousands of years ago in India and is the mother-science to yoga. Students of Ayurveda believe that everything in the Universe – dead or alive – is connected. If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the Universe, Nature, and the Seasons, you will have good health. When something disrupts this balance, you feel unwell. Food as medicine, sensual body practices, herbs, feminine-form yoga, mantra, and nature-based meditation are just a few facets of this rich tradition. Please email Cheryl at [masked] to register, get the Zoom link, and receive more details about the class and how her “Pay What You Want” system works. Cheryl is Certified in the Feminine-Form Lineage of Ayurveda, teaches Mindfulness, and brings people to swim with wild dolphins. Learn more at: https://cherylschirillo.com

Learn How To SOAR: A Hands-On Healing Modality

Online event

Join me for this powerful but easy class on how to use gentle touch to release old patterns and pain. SOAR is a hands-on, holistic, biomechanical technique that helps people move from the state of flight, fight, or freeze into rest, digest and heal. In practice SOAR looks a little like Healing Touch with one person giving light touch and another receiving while in a relaxed and receptive state. Benefits: - Strengthens your immune system - Calms your nervous system by bringing the body out of fight or flight (sympathetic) and into rest and digest (parasympathetic) - If the flow of energy has become inhibited in specific areas of the body, old memories or emotional-patterns held there can be gently released allowing your natural state of flow to return. - When you feel safe and your body receives detailed information about how it is organized at this moment in time, structural changes (i.e. bones realign, the heart comes out from “hiding” behind the ribs) naturally begin to occur. For this Zoom class you’ll participate as a pair, meaning you and a friend or family member in the same room on the Zoom call together. I'll be on the other end of the call guiding your experience. No prior experience is necessary to give or receive a SOAR Session. You will be gently laying your hands on specific points of the body to activate and awaken your partner’s own body intelligence. You’ll need a warm blanket, pillows for under your head, and perhaps under your knees, and either a yoga mat or massage table to lie down on. Pay What You Want I typically charge $35 per person for this offering, but I know that while some folks are OK financially, others are experiencing challenges right now. So I am asking that each person discern what kind of self-care investment they would like to make after tuning into their heart. Any amount is just fine. I accept PayPal https://paypal.me/cherylschirillo or Venmo, @CherylSchirillo, Cheryl Schirillo-Johnson Please email me at [masked] if you would like to sign up for the course. I will send you the Zoom link after I receive your payment. Advanced payment is required to attend. RSVP soon as I’m keeping the class small so everyone can ask questions and share about their experience if they like.

Group Sound Healing at Flower Eagle Medicine Lodge

Needs a location

Please note that advanced registration and payment is required for this Meetup which tends to fill up well in advance. To RSVP please text or call Robin White Star of Flower Eagle Medicine Lodge at (336)[masked]. Robin will give you the address for the Lodge (located in NW Winston-Salem near Wake Forest University) after you register and make your payment via PayPal or Venmo. Resonance Healing is a form of Sound Bath Healing. It works with identifying and releasing resonances of stuck thought forms and emotions through sound activation and shamanic healing work done on the energetic level to repair damaged DNA. These resonances are energy fields undulating with the core frequencies of fear, separation, unresolved grief, shame, and judgment in all their variations. During the Healing these lower-frequencies in your body/mind/spirit with be replaced with high-frequency vibrations including trust, faith, belonging and unconditional love. This Circle is set up in a group setting (8-9 people receiving from 3 – 5 Sound Healers) where you first identify the personal and collective resonances you wish to transmute and transform on a cellular level. Then you connect with what you wish to create in your life to replace these damaging resonances — high vibration frequencies that will be held and nurtured to take root within your energy fields. The work is done through the use of sound activation — indigenous percussion, wind, and string instruments along with singing bowls, gongs and bells. Voice is also used to transmit and focus certain energies to shift stuck energy patterns. These resonances are tied to our personal traumas and belief systems, to lineage cords that have been passed down through the generations, and collective patterns that keep the "pain body" alive. Your task will be to open yourself for the shift to occur, being receptive and willing to replace one resonance for another. During the sound activation you are welcome to lie down or remain seated. Plan on arriving between 6:30 and 6:45 pm to set up your seat. Once the healing begins promptly at 7:00 pm, no further admittance is allowed. Sliding scale: $25 - $40, payable in advance or at the door. Advanced registration is required. To save your spot, text or call Robin White Star of Flower Eagle Medicine Lodge at (336)[masked]. Robin will give you the address for the Lodge (located in NW Winston-Salem near Wake Forest University) after you register and make your payment via PayPal or Venmo.
