Spring Equinox Sound Healing Ceremony

A special team of healers and musicians are gathering to hold sacred space on the Spring Equinox to pray on our symbolic seeds, prepare the soil and work the ground of our visions and dreams – harvested from the fruits of winters rejuvenation and introspection.

With sound from gongs and other instruments, each person will be enabled to connect to their inner spirit and the surrounding abundance of nature. Afterward, a limited number of people will have an opportunity to have a deeper healing experience in a Cedar Enzyme Footbath.

The Cedar Enzyme Footbath immediately following the event is $15 with very limited tickets available.

Complimentary refreshments including non-dairy hot cocoa will be served following the event with time for meet and greet on the front porch.

Entry fee of $10 can be applied to any same day service.

Tools for Immunity Building Wellness Workshop

Do you feel stressed?

While most people would answer “yes” to this question, very few realize the implications of stress on their health.  In 1984, Dr. Kiecolt-Glazer performed a controlled study of the effect of the stress hormone cortisol on the functioning of the immune system.  Results of this study indicated a reduced functioning of the immune system.

According to Dr. Mary Meagher, “People exposed to chronic social conflict experience high levels of stress and consequent dysregulation of the immune system, thereby increasing vulnerability to infectious and autoimmune disease.”

Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary is presenting a workshop on building immunity, giving you tools to both relax your nervous system if you are feeling stressed and self-help techniques for building immunity.

Included in this day-long experience:

  • Qigong Do-In practices to manage stress
  • Presentation of essential oils, herbs and foods to strengthen the immune system
  • Self-massage techniques, including lymphatic self-massage and self-acupressure, to increase immune functioning
  • Cedar Enzyme Footbath and 75-minute Swedish-Esalen massage to relax and unwind
  • Healthy farm-to-table lunch
Space is Limited! Reserve Early!
