HOLI CACAO CEREMONY WITH KHRIS HAHN AT MGY

HOLI CACAO CEREMONY WITH KHRIS HAHN AT MGY

Holi, also known as the “Festival of Colors” or “Festival of Love,” is celebrated as a spring festival, symbolizing the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and the blossoming of love and fertility. Holi transcends social barriers and brings people from all backgrounds together in a spirit of unity, joy, and forgiveness. It’s a time to mend broken relationships, forgive and forget past grievances, and start anew with love and positivity.

Combining the ancient cacao ceremony rituals with Holi’s vibrant traditions, we will create a meaningful, memorable, and rich experience that celebrates spiritual connections and cultural diversity.

Come wearing your most vibrant colors as we celebrate community bonding, where we will foster a sense of bliss, harmony, and renewal among friends of different ages and backgrounds.

Please bring a journal, writing utensil, and your favorite tumbler filled with water, as we will explore and witness the various ways you have conquered wrongdoings and have been touched by divine love.

TO TELL THE TRUTH

TO TELL THE TRUTH

A gentle yet deeply transformational Guided Meditation

On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, Jayne will be facilitating a “To Tell You the Truth” guided meditation. This meditation will begin with a brief discussion about our emotional body and the powerful influences it has in how we make decisions, where we hold ourselves back, and why we struggle trusting our truth.    

What this meditation is:

  • Observing and allowing our emotions to show up in a natural and organic way.
  • Being fully present to what arises with compassion and non-judgment.
  • A practice of releasing attachment to difficult emotions and noticing what shows up in its place.

What this meditation is not:

  • This meditation is not group therapy.
  • We will not be processing nor exploring the “why” behind our present emotions.

This guided meditation is for those who struggle with:

  • People pleasing
  • Fear of rejection
  • Abandonment
  • Lack of self-worth and value
  • Unable to speak their truth in relationships
  • Trusting their own inner wisdom and guidance

How you will benefit from this meditation:

  • Reconnection to yourself
  • Release of harbored energy
  • Feelings of lightness and emotional regulation
  • Greater capacity for creativity and inspiration
  • Deeper self-awareness and sense of agency
  • Returning to your own sense of strength, worth, and value

When: Wednesday, March 13th

Where: Morning Glory Yoga and Wellness Center

Time: 6:45 – 7:45

Cost: $25

WIM HOF METHOD FUNDAMENTALS WITH ELEE

WIM HOF METHOD FUNDAMENTALS
WITH ELEE

Put yourself in the expert hands of a certified WHM Instructor to learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method: Breathing Technique, Cold Exposure & Commitment. Find out how you can utilize oxygen and cold exposure to optimize body & mind, and learn about the underlying physiology.

These workshops are limited to 30 participants, and Instructors often choose to keep them much smaller. The intimate quality allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation. Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about— a WHM workshop offers something for everyone.

The program generally kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, and always includes a breathing session and an (optional) ice bath. At the end there is ample room for reflection, and the Instructor is there to answer questions throughout the workshop.

Instructors have their own specializations, and there is some variation across the individual workshops. A detailed overview of the day is sent out upon registration.

If you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you finish your showers cold in the days leading up to the workshop. This may be overwhelming at first, but just try to relax, focus on your breath, and bring it into a controlled, steady rhythm.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is suitable for everyone, but does require a basic level of health. Out of precaution, we advise against participation during pregnancy, or if you are epileptic. People with cardiovascular issues, or any other serious health conditions should always consult a medical professional before starting the Wim Hof Method.

Program

Although there is always a rough outline, ‘no program’ a Wim Hof Method mantra. For the best experience, go in with an open mind and without expectations. The start- and end times listed in this section are subject to change.

Please make sure that you show your order number on arrival, either on a print-out or via your phone.

FEBRUARY CACAO CEREMONY AND SOUND HEALING

Paint your HeARTwork

FEBRUARY CACAO CEREMONY AND SOUND HEALING

“Cacao is a gentle but profound plant medicine that gives you a nudge of a new perspective. As the cacao medicine starts to wear off, because it was just a little nudge from your base state of consciousness, it’s easier to bridge that new perspective into your daily life.” – Mose Musica

We encourage you to bring a journal and writing utensil to record the exploration of your emotional body and the discovery of various feelings, insights, and reflections. You will find yourself feeling restored, renewed, and rejuvenated as you release negative attachments and connect into your heart space. Please bring a yoga mat and bottled water, props and blankets will be provided.

Cacao dates back to the ancient Mesoamerican civilizations of the Mayans, Aztecs, and Toltecs who consumed it primarily in the form of a drink and was available only to the elite. It was considered a godly potion as they experienced heightened energy and believed it to have a link between their blood and heart, and so dubbed the “Food of the Gods”.

Feelings are multifaceted experiences felt not only within our physical body but also emotionally. Emotions, despite being complex and at times impulsive, provide immense benefits, fostering motivation, inspiration, and enriching life experiences. Conversely, emotions can also be messy, unpredictable, confusing, and at times challenging to work through.

In a bid to avoid hurting others or to conform to societal expectations, we learn to suppress our emotions and disguise our genuine feelings. Unleashing emotions through creative painting facilitates an environment for feelings to manifest and thrive.
The integration of the creative process coupled with ceremonial cacao opens space for finding a path back to our authentic selves. When we allow ourselves to express our inner world through colors while opening our heart space, we begin to embark on the journey of elevating our emotional intelligence.

We invite you to join us as we explore emotional releases through art while being held by the gentle cacao vibrations of unconditional love, compassion and bliss.

Today, science has been able to define exactly how cacao benefits our body and mind. Cacao contains mood-boosting compounds such as anandamide and PEA which increase serotonin levels. Cacao also contains theobromine which affects blood flow and helps to protect the heart. Additionally, cacao has a very high source of antioxidants, magnesium, calcium, vitamins A, C, D, calcium, zinc, copper and potassium.

“Cacao is a gentle but profound plant medicine that gives you a nudge of a new perspective. As the cacao medicine starts to wear off, because it was just a little nudge from your base state of consciousness, it’s easier to bridge that new perspective into your daily life.” – Mose Musica

Every day we find ourselves in a place of judgement. We make judgements regarding what to eat and wear, judgement against ourselves and others, judgement around our environment and how we interact. Those judgements can support our belief systems in either a supportive or obstructive way. Being able to detox from those negative judgements and use it as a tool to enhance our happiness and genuine connections will benefit our overall well-being.

We invite you to come sit with the heart opening cacao where you will be able to explore where judgements may be causing loss, pain, or suffering and then work towards healing those deep seeded imprints. Cacao can be your compass towards finding your authentic heart space that is unconditional love which shows up without judgement, but rather compassion and empathy.

We encourage you to bring a journal and writing utensil to record the exploration of your emotional body and the discovery of various feelings, insights, and reflections. You will find yourself feeling restored, renewed, and rejuvenated as you release negative attachments and connect into your heart space.

Align: Winter with Kelsey Carrasquel

Align: Winter
with Kelsey Carrasquel

February 3rd, 2024
2:00PM -5:00PM

The Align workshop series is a combination of conversation & practicum, in which a small yet diverse group of students are given the opportunity to develop their own practices that are in alignment with the season of life they are in, and to engage in intimate and expansive conversations with one another about how they each uniquely resonate with those seasons. This particular workshop focuses on the season of Winter, both as a season of the earth that influences us and our wellbeing, and also as a reflection of a season of rest & reflection one might be experiencing in their personal life.

Winter is a season of rest and reflection. Winter’s medicine is the time and space we have to put to rest anything that we are still holding onto from the past cycle, not necessarily forever, but for the time being. Winter invites us to be in incubation. Just like when we go to bed at night, when we rest, we do not cease to be, but we are able to enter into a deeper state of consciousness, without the distractions of the waking world. When we rest, we can explore the realm of dreams, which are the beginnings of our intentions for the next growing season. There is no pressure to implement our dreams and ideas during this season; this is a time to dream big and not be concerned with the outcome. As well as dreaming and visioning for the future, we can be in reflection on the seasons past, in which we honor what was in alignment with our highest good, and what was not. This also will carry us into the next growing season more aligned with our highest good. This workshop focuses on practices that keep the soul warm as the body resets.

This workshop is limited to 7 students to maintain a comfortable container for students to engage in conversation with one another, and their own practices within this season. Sign up promptly to reserve your spot!

IN THIS WORKSHOP, STUDENTS WILL…

  1. Learn about the seasonal resonances of Winter from the perspective of Eastern philosophy & medicine systems.
  2. Explore how Winter uniquely resonates with you.
  3. Learn about rituals and practices that support and balance the energy of Winter.
  4. Work in a seasonal workbook (provided) that prompts putting these concepts into practice.
  5. Be in a brave space together for discussion on these topics.

Fire Ceremony with Jayne Clark


It’s time to let go of 2023 and set our intentions for 2024 with a traditional Shamanic Grandfather Fire Ceremony!


Grief ~ Loss ~ Heartache ~ Heartbreak ~ Disappointment ~ Anxiety ~ Stress ~ Lack of self-worth and value ~ Confusion around purpose and belonging ~ Financial insecurity ~ Chronic health issues.

I know this year has been incredibly difficult for so many of you. You’ve had to endure some deep emotional challenges while still giving your best attempt to show up in the world, support those around you, and meet your daily responsibilities.

And now it’s time for YOU to receive healing, connection, and community with other like minded people.

There are 5 Parts to a Grandfather Fire Ceremony

  • Brief explanation of what is a traditional Grandfather Fire Ceremony and what to expect.
  • Invocation of opening sacred space
  • 3 opportunities to work with Grandfather Fire medicine – one, releasing what you’re ready to let go of. Two, offering your prayers and intentions of what you want to bring forth. Three, is gratitude.
  • A time for quiet reflection, journaling, and / or communion with Grandfather Fire medicine. There will be space for sharing if you feel called. It’s not required.
  • Closing sacred space.

Toltec wisdom teaches us that everything we do is based on agreements we have made agreements with ourselves, with other people, and with life. These agreements can be a source of self-limiting beliefs that deprive us of pleasure and create needless suffering. We have the ability to transcend that which is holding us back through a powerful code of conduct called The Four Agreements. These agreements are ones we can make with ourselves for transformation where we experience freedom, happiness and love.

The Four Agreements are:
1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
4. Always Do Your Best.

Join us in sacred circle as we sit with the loving and heart centering cacao while being washed over by the beautiful sounds of crystal bowls and reflect on The Four Agreements and how to apply them to our daily lives. Each month we will focus on one of the agreements and how it can serve you while coming to a deeper understanding of how to live a truly authentic life that honors you and your growth towards enlightenment.
