We live in a vibrational universe. Music, Mantra, and Mandalas have long been utilized by healers, wisdom keepers, and sages to express the fundamental nature of space and time. Stand alone, each of these practices is a deep study of our personal and collective unconscious and consciousness.
Used in harmony with one another and in a group setting, the synergy of Mantra, Meditation, Music, and Mandala building becomes a unique way to activate healing, enhance clarity, creativity, and boost connectedness.
We will begin this event with an invocation, introduction, and bonding. We will practice chanting and sitting in silence with the resonance we co-create through sound, then move into building a flower mandala to live music.
Weather permitting, we will carry our mandala to the river and offer the fruits of our meditation and collective prayer to the waters of New York City.
Flowers and other treats will be provided for the mandala, but we encourage you to contribute your favorite plant leaves or petals with. We would love for you to bring your personal voice and vision into the tapestry we are weaving!
Please bring your favorite flowers for our first session.
