Spring Equinox Celebration in the Osmosis Meditation Garden

Sunrise Gong Ceremony with Spruce Haushildt and Jeff Edelheit

Friday, March 20 from 7:00 - 8:30am

For thousands of years our ancestors have celebrated Spring Equinox, as a time of fertility, rebirth of life and energy – which is why today we find many traditional religious celebrations at this time, such as Easter and Passover.

We will fill the garden pond area with the mystical sounds of Tibetan bowls sacred bells and the resonance of a planetary gong. Coupled with natural sounds of the ponds and native wildlife our guests will be transported to the deeper inner self. There is no greater journey then the one within. Each molecule, each cell of our body carries a frequency. In optimum health, our body sings a song of vitality, balance and harmony. The power of the instruments and their frequencies helps to fully relax us and unlock tightly held blocks in our bodies.

Relaxing into the deep, meditative states of Theta brainwave, induced by the frequencies and tones, will help to quiet and soothe the part of our brain called the amygdala, the part that contains our primal fears which can keep us stressed-out.

Sound, used with grace and pure intention will calm and clear your mind... relax and invigorate your body, enhancing your health and well-being! Come set an intention for change. You can plant a seed to symbolize new beginnings and your new intentions, and pull a weed to symbolize the end of winter and end to any behaviors or relationships you want to put behind you... or Start a cleanse or Spring-cleaning. Cleaning your space = cleaning your energy. Clearing your clutter = clearing your mind.
