Y'all. I am ridiculously excited for this workshop we are offering next month! Laura Frank of Inner Space Yoga is coming to Oracle on May 7th to offer her beautiful Throat Chakra opening workshop, Natural Voice! Check it out:
++ Natural Voice: A Throat Chakra Workshop ++
Song and mantra are powerful tools for self healing and connecting with the whole in nearly every spiritual practice around the world. Singing in a group allows one to surrender the ego and enter into a group meditation. All are welcome, especially those who feel blocked or insecure in any matters relating to the throat chakra, communication, and singing. We will work together to find the natural voice and heal past traumas associated with the throat chakra in a safe, ceremonial space.
What to expect/bring:
People should dress comfortable enough to do some light stretching. We will be sitting the floor for a period of time, so people may want to bring a cushion, folded blanket, or back jack. It is important to stay hydrated, so people might want to bring water to drink. Also, people should bring a small, meaningful item or talisman to charge at the altar like a stone, scarf, charm, piece of jewelry, etc.
This class will be held at Oracle (130 West 18th Street, KCMO 64108) on Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 4:30pm-7:00pm.
