seasonal gong celebration  WITH JULIE CHASE

Date:  Friday, March 16

Time:  7:00pm - 8:30pm

Cost:  $20

Equinoxes and Solstices are astronomical events that mark the cycle of the sun throughout the year, indicating change between the four seasons. Observing and celebrating these events connects us to our own inner cycles and creates an opportunity for reflection, enlightenment, and awakening. This process allows us to walk the internal spiritual path of enlightenment where we discover harmony and alignment to our own inner Mystic. Join us for a Seasonal Gong Celebration to celebrate the Spring Equinox and renew your inner light through the deep relaxing sound of Sacred Gongs. Dress in comfortable clothing to sit or lie down and feel free to bring anything that might help you get comfortable - the studio has blankets, bolsters, and yoga mats for your use.
