Spring Equinox Sound Healing Ceremony

Zarina is coming back with her musical partner for another spellbinding shamanic ritual. Be prepared to get carried away on a journey to explore our profound power to heal ourselves through sound for the Spring Equinox!

Voicing traditional songs from the Shamanic communities of Zarina’s Sakha native culture, you will hear a reindeer breath, the sounds of northern birds and animals.

Shamanic throat singing, overtone chanting, rhythms of mind-altering states, and vibrations of the mouth harp, are to awaken the healing process of the organs and allow you to slide deep into your cells and bring forth the blessings during this time of renewal and new beginnings!

Afterward, a limited number of people will have an opportunity to have a deeper healing experience with sound therapy in an Enzyme Footbath.

The Cedar Enzyme Footbath immediately following the event is $15 with very limited tickets available.
Entry fee of $15 can be applied to any same day service.
