Meditation For Sexual Healing: Join Reiki Master/Intuitive Reader Julia Turner-Qi for a little event she likes to call, Sing you a Piece of my Mind. Often when doing readings, messages have come through to Julia by means of songs.Singing and music has always been very important to her.This will be a class to actively participate in. She will start the class with a short meditation, everyone will all introduce themselves, and then Julia will begin by telling you a little story and a song that accompanies it. Everyone will then have a turn to do the same, or they can choose to just listen to others. We will allow everyone to share as much as they like until the time is up. We will end with a short closing. Come open up and sing!
Sing You A Piece Of My Mind: Julia specializes in sexuality and relationships and how they affect every other aspect of our lives. If we can get over shame, guilt and other lower vibrations around our sexuality and relationships, it can bring forth great connection, for deeper wisdom and clarity. Join her as she walks you through a meditation that can help you acknowledge and release that which is no longer useful or serving you well. Let her walk you through a journey of discovering new ways to more fully open up and live in your true authenticity… and it might just help you have some rocking good sex too.

7pm: “Power Up 2021” by Loren Griffin
So we are officially into the New Year of 2021.
Last year, created a sense of powerlessness for many of us. Through the Ascension Retreat this month, I’d like to help us all restore our sense of well being and self empowerment. In order to do that, we will examine the “Chakra” system, and give a brief overview and then focus on the “Third Chakra” also called the “Power Chakra” or “Solar Chakra”. We will learn some practices and a meditation that will help us maintain our self empowerment, spiritual strength and health. I hope you’ll join me and together we will move fearlessly through what looks to be a year of great change for the world. We will look forward to those changes, armed with tools and practices to maintain our next highest version of our highest vision of who we are. Come on along and join this Soul Gypsy Caravan.
