In 2 Weeks!! Sound Light Healing with Pierre Garreaud

This coming 27 &28 of October we are having a very special guest here at Yoga Garden. This is a great opportunity you don’t want to miss! Pierre Garreaud is a Peruvian Sound Healer, Shaman and Kundalini Activator. He will lead us through his hypnotic sounds and chants into higher states of consciousness and deep healing. He is adding two great processes to the weekend workshop which feels magically awesome!!!


Please enjoy the letter below from Pierre:

I will be visiting NC from October 25th to November 4th, 2012. I am excited to be teaching Sound Light Healing Level 1 at the Yoga Garden on October 27 & 28, 2012.

This amazing and unique workshop caters to anyone who wants to excel in their spiritual development. You don’t need to be a healer or to know anything about healing to benefit from all the tools and knowledge that will be offered this weekend.
Through the many conversations I have had with Dharma, I have redesigned the Sound Light Healing workshop to help and assist the participants. You will receive extensive information on how to work with the chakra system, the etheric Light Body and safety ways to expand the Kundalini energy that resides within.
Sound is extremely powerful, a key opener that seduces through vibration the dormant sacred snake that resides coiled in the tailbone. In the rainforest of Peru, Kundalini is called Sachamama. Sachamama is the mother snake who is enchanted by the “icaros” (chants) of the medicine shaman inviting her to dance with the participants for the purpose of clearing, awakening, and soul traveling.
Per request of Dharma, I am including two extra processes that will change and deeply transform participants as they journey inward during this weekend workshop. These two additional processes are the Ancestral DNA clearing and the Birth Right Activation.
As we are born into this world we bring our bubble of consciousness that merges with the embryo seed of our father’s and mother’s lineages. In this way, we inherit a physical vehicle that we will be using during this new incarnation. What we don’t know, but what the ancients new, is that this new body holds ancient Karma from both of the lineages. What is called now by some spiritual faiths as original sin,  meant original karma at that time. This new light as “original karma” brings a totally different understanding of how to clear our body vehicle in order to have a great ride through this Ascension times.
The Ancestral DNA Clearing  is a process that removes and clears that “junk stuff” that lives within us and that is activated as we move through our lives. This junk, which is part of the vibrational information stored in what is called Junk DNA does not belong to you. Your lineage sickness, limiting belief systems, attitudes towards life (scarcities, fears, struggles and torments) are transferred to your body as you incarnate but do not belong to you. Clearly and simply, it is not YOU!
The purpose of the Birth Rite Activation is to reestablish a solid connection to the Divine and to keep us open to the Divinity within us. The goal is to open the 4 upper seals(Chakras), clear them and establish a deep rooted connection between you and the Divine. Soul parts and fragments are called back to your etheric body and your Dharma switch is turned “on”as we call all the good deeds you have accrued through different incarnations.
The benefits from this workshop are immense. As a result of this transformational experience you will be moving more energy through your inner channels. You will become a better meditator and a better healeras you bring healing to others and yourself.
I am very excited to meet you, help you activate your Kundalini and be part of your Awakening process. The video above is where I explain how I visually saw Sound as a Tapestry of Color. Enjoy!!
In Light and Service,
Pierre Garreaud

Autumn Equinox

Mabon is the Autumn Equinox which is the time of year that divides the day and night equally.  Take a moment to offer gratitude towards the waning sunlight as well as impending darkness. A time to celebrate the aging Goddess in preparation for death and re-birth.  A time for harvesting of this year’s crops, we may also offer libations such as fertilizer, wines, ciders and herbs to trees.  Take some time to finish old business and appreciate the fruits of all of your harvests while we venture into the time of year for resting, reflection and rejuvenation.

Prepare a special altar and ceremony to celebrate this magical time of year with some of the correspondences listed below:

Symbolism & Symbols: Harvest, Balance, Equality; grains, acorns, seeds, vines, pomegranates, apples, wine, horn of plenty

Colors: gold, brown, burgundy, orange, red

Incense & Fragrance: sage & myrrh

Stones & Gems: agate (yellow), lapis lazuli, saphire

Prayers & Affirmations: harmony, balance, protection & prosperity

Blessings to you!

Concentrate at the mind’s eye/third eye/brow center and take long, deep breaths in and out through the nose. This mudra will help you feel joy and improve your state of mind. Practice this mudra for 1-3 minutes. (If arms tire, lower the elbows so that the fingers are in line with the temples.)
