The Art of Shamanic Journeying - Special Earth Day Ceremony

The Art of Shamanic Journeying - Special Earth Day Ceremony

With Stephanie Moore, Shamanic Practitioner

Earth blessing, healing, and Journey

Join us for a wonderful evening of ceremony.

Part 1: This workshop is despacho ceremony and journey for healing. We will as a group create a despacho for the purpose of healing the mother earth.  This is a perfect day to show our gratitude to the mother with it being earth day. We then will be traveling to other worlds for the healing of ourselves, the local community, and the planet.

A despacho is a ceremony performed on or after a earth cycle. One purpose of a despacho is it’s a representation of beauty and connecting us with the beauty of the earth and nature. Another purpose of a  despacho brings us into harmonious relationship with heaven and earth aligning all the worlds lower, middle, and upper.  This ceremony is opportunity to give prayers and gifts to the universe.

Part 2. After creating our despacho we will then journey to the other worlds. The purpose of this journey will be for healing. We will use Micheal Harner’s method of journeying to guide our experience. You will discover the healing worlds within you.

This workshop is open to all people of all backgrounds and experience levels.  Hosted by the Shamanic Duo Stephanie and David.

This workshop is an introduction to the ancient art of shamanic journey. We will use anthropologist, Micheal Harner's method of journeying to guide our experience. Come find out what our ancestors have known for centuries- discover the magic and healing of the worlds within you, waiting to be discovered.

We will take time to prepare for our journey by discussing the necessary steps, Q&A, and centering together. Journeying like meditation is a tool for spiritual growth. It is also a tool that can be used for healing, obtaining information, and for working through personal issues. Once we begin, Stephanie and David will drum and hold sacred ceremony space as you journey. This workshop and journey circle is open to all people of all backgrounds and all experiences.

What our students are saying about the journey

I left last night's group feeling lighter and brighter. The experience of the sound meditation is one I would recommend to people who'd like to nurture themselves on a very deep level. It's like pushing the "reset" button on your operating system!  - Jane, Berwyn, PA

I find Gong Meditation fascinating. Lance is a gifted musician. The sounds that he is able to get from this instrument defy explanation. For me, it makes time seem to stand still. Afterwards I feel as though my brain has been massaged. I feel clearer and more centered. - Mary, Berwyn

Laughter Yoga - World Laughter Day Celebration & Fundraiser!

Laughter Yoga - World Laughter Day Celebration & Fundraiser!

Village Wellness (map)

With Mary Mayer, Registered Yoga Teacher, Laughter Wellness Yoga Coach

Note: This is a special Laughter Yoga session! We will be celebrating World Laughter Day! All proceeds from the class will go to support T & E Cares. A local organization that supports local residents in need of financial or material assistance. 

We have all heard the phrase "Laughter is the best medicine". Come deeply heal! Laughter Yoga isn't "yoga" in the traditional sense. In fact, we also call this practice "Laughter Wellness". There are no yoga poses involved and we don't tell jokes! We use playfulness to engage the group in shared laughter and combine that with breathing, gentle movement and mindfulness.

Founded by an Indian physician in 1995, the laughter yoga movement seeks to promote the profound psychological and physiological benefits of laughter. 

Laughter Yoga is a complete well-being workout that combines unconditional laughter with yoga breathing and gentle movement. This practice is suitable for all physical abilities. You don’t need to be flexible or funny. You just need a sincere desire to laugh more and feel better!

Laughter Yoga is simple yet profound. It has been scientifically proven that laughing can relieve depression and anxiety, increase the efficiency of your lungs, heart and immune system and reduce pain. Come experience the wonderful benefits!

Cost: BY DONATION! All Proceeds go to T & E Cares

Time: Sunday 2-3pm

Laughter Yoga in the News! 

 - this CNN video! 'Why Faking Laughter is good for you' with Dr. Sanjay Gupta

 - Huffington Post: I Tried Laughter Yoga And It Actually Made Me Happier

What our students are saying:

"I enter the class stressed and leave relaxed and happy.  Her creative visualizations work
almost immediately.  Her voice is calm, relaxing and soothing. Mary is amazing! 
I highly recommend, "Laughing Yoga" to all who want to place joy back into their
vocabulary"
- Arleen

"Laughter yoga is a unique experience that anyone will enjoy. It allows you to tap into that "child-like" essence of yourself that can easily get lost. Mary is a wonderful yoga teacher and brings a warm and inviting atmosphere to the class. I highly recommend taking a class with her!"

"I loved the location, and Mary is a fantastic yoga teacher. It was light-hearted and fun, not intimidating. It was a nice format by which we got to meet others and talk with them, whereas in a formal yoga class you won't really talk to others."- Stephanie Fortunato

"I liked that the laughter fed off of other people - regular yoga seems individual - more of a group with this program. Also, I don't need a fancy pants mat and rope for this program. I liked doing the HOOKY POKEY ! and laughing with imaginary phone.
It's hard to be depressed when you are laughing so hard you are going to pee your pants."
-David Gerbstadt

About Ron

Ron Kravitz

Ron was first introduced to the joys of singing as a boy by his mother, who was a semi professional singer.  Later on along the path, he was introduced to West African drumming by the late and great Babatunde Olatunji.  In 1988, Ron took cellist David Darling's Music For Everyone Workshop at The Omega Institute.  That profound experience opened Ron up to a new world of musical freedom with endless possibility's of self expression.  From the seeds of that inspiration, Ron became a certified facilitator for Music For People, which is an international non-profit organization that promotes self-expression through music improvisation. 

Ron has created a community center of sorts in his residential suburban home in Wyndmoor, PA.  where he facilitates weekly gatherings, hosts African Drum Classes with long time friend and colleague, Quint Lange.   At least 5 times a year his 20 year old house concert series Underground at Ron's, will be presented.
