Autumn Equinox Sound Healing Ceremony

Eventbrite Banner_sound healing

Equanimity, balance, and calm.

Wind (breath) are the forces that make the sound that comes from the Japanese bamboo flute known as The Shakuhachi. Master player Elliot Kallen, along with Jeffrey Edelheit and the celestial harmonics of the earth gong and Molina Mono chord will be leading the Autumn Equinox ritual this year.

This day of Equal day and night marks the crossing over to Fall. Our quarterly gatherings have become a seasonal touchstone for our community. A bonding time for friends and neighbors when we connect with the special healing energy at Osmosis that has been cultivated on this land for over 30 years. A channel for healing and reckoning with spirit. Our sound ceremonies tap into the rhythm between sound and silence.

You are invited to join us in our annual Autumn Equinox Sound Healing Ceremony.

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.

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

We look forward to seeing you in ceremony and celebration of Autumn in the tranquil gardens.

Rumi’s Caravan – Benefit Concert for Center for Climate Protection

Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary is pleased to announce a Garden Summer Evening which includes a fine wine and cheese reception, an inspiring performance of poetry, and the inauguration of a the newly re-landscaped welcome garden.

The evening will begin with a premiere cheese and wine reception provided by Freestone Artisan Cheese and Matanzas Creek Winery with music by Bruce Klein in the newly remodeled entrance area. In addition, guests will have the opportunity to sample a magical Cedar Enzyme Footbath, the signature treatment of the Osmosis Spa, throughout the evening.

Along with the reception and one of our signature spa treatments, the evening will be highlighted by Rumi’s Caravan, a Sonoma County tradition that invites guests to be lulled and inspired by ecstatic verse — some ancient, some contemporary – learned by heart, spoken with passion and accompanied with improvisational music. Poet Kay Crista says, “What we want to do is welcome people to this oasis, it’s a place to slip out of the weariness of everyday living and just be nourished by the reminder of the deeper aspects of what is to be human and alive. We want to rekindle the wildness of the heart in a world culture where nature has been beaten into submission.”

And to top it all off, the evening will benefit The Center for Climate Protection, a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire, align, and mobilize action in response to the climate crisis. Working with business, government, youth and the broader community to advance practical, science-based solutions for significant greenhouse gas emission reductions, The Center for Climate Protection makes it easier for people to address climate change and ensure that future generations can continue to live, work, play, and thrive on this extraordinary planet. They provided the impetus for Sonoma Clean Power which has grown to provide Community Choice Energy to over 5 million people in California, reduced greenhouse gas in Sonoma County by 11%, and save $62 million in local consumer electricity rates. All proceeds to benefit The Center For Climate Protection.

Caravan poets include Kay Crista, Larry Robinson and Doug von Koss accompanied by musicians Jason Parmar on percussion and Donald Fontowitz playing Turkish Oud and Chaturangui. Together they will celebrate the world’s cultural and spiritual traditions with the sublime power of performance poetry.
