The Shamanic Journey

Join us for a 2 hour Shamanic Journey led by Allison Stierle of Stareaa, a Nordic Shaman with nearly 20 years of experience. Allison arrived in Calgary for a job almost 30 years ago, became involved in an Olympic Winter sport and through provincial competition, met her teacher and mentor. This opportunity opened the door for her to learn Nordic Shamanism with components focusing on Power Animals, Soul Retrieval and Soul Extraction.
Journeying with her hand drum, she has been trained under her Shamanic teacher in all areas and she uses the monotonous repetitive beat to "journey" for information to help Soul healing.
Classes require students to bring:

A Gong Puja honours and allows space for our being’s ability to heal – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The Gong Puja promotes a deep sense of peace, strengthens the nervous system, balances the chakras and increases energy and vitality.
Immersed in the sound of the gong and in the subtle ethers of the sound bath, our Innate Intelligence has the ability to restore, repair and rejuvenate as the cosmic ocean of vibrations wash over us; cleansing, unblocking and freeing us. The functional harmony created by the gong tones bring about an inner stillness where deep healing can occur. During the Puja, we meditate – or we sleep – a sleep like no other; where we are awake in a dream. Playing gongs at a low level continuously for about 7.5 hours will take you on a "journey to the world of live sound, the dimension of primal, conscious sleep and time out of time.”
Gong Puja is an individual experience, the experience of each person in the room may be quite different. Trust your experience is perfect for you.
Investment $150/per person *Pre-registration is required Date: January 18th, 2020 Arrival between 9-9:30pm

Yoga Nidra is defined as a practice as well as a state of consciousness. During Yoga Nidra, the body is completely relaxed in stillness. During this guided meditation, you will be sunk into a parasympathetic state yet completely aware. This is the perfect time to allow the conscious and subconscious mind to experience different feelings and sensations, without attachment.
This practice is paired beautifully with Acupuncture. Before the Yoga Nidra begins, small pins will be placed at specific points on the body to bring you into an even deeper state of parasympathetic relaxation. You will leave feeling revitalized and calm!
*Note: receipts for insurance reimbursement will be provided upon request for the Acupuncture portion of this workshop ($28).

The word "catharsis" refers to the purification or purgation that brings about spiritual renewal and release from tension. It is a celebration of free expression and emotional liberation, as well as a catalyst for personal transformation and growth.
This workshop will provide a safe space for you to express your thoughts and emotions through movement. Within an immersive soundscape, we will use breath, movement, celebration and stillness to build towards physical intensity and cathartic release. Gentle pranayama, mantra, and meditation will be included at the end of the practice to drop you deep into rest and repose.
