Journey of the Sun: Sound Healing & Movement Festival
Sun, April 30, 2017, 1:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
We welcome you to join us at the Journey of the Sun Festival as we celebrate through Movement and Sacred Sound!
Journey of the Sun is about ushering in the summer season, and re-igniting the fire within ourselves as we prepare for the flourishing season full of possibilities, growth, and improvement both figuratively and literally.
Journey of the Sun stems from celebrating the traditional Gaelic May Day Festival also known as ‘Beltane’. It is one of the four seasonal festivals traditionally celebrated in Ireland in honor of welcoming the summer season.
This is a special time to honor the feminine energy of Mother Earth and give respect and appreciation for the infinite gifts she has to offer to all living beings.
We will be blessing the space and the participants through dance, yoga, tai chi, and sound healing.

Workshop Facilitator Applications
Tucked away on three acres off High Road is a fascinating property hidden from view. Visitors walk down a wooded path and are greeted by the majestic live oak tree shading a soft lawn, estimated to be over 300 years old. This tree, a sapling in the time of Shakespeare, keeps company with something not seen in Florida, an English Tudor-style cottage, which looks as if it comes from the pages of a child’s book of fairy tales. With a steeply gabled roof, diamond-pattern leaded glass windows and stone foundation, the cottage continues its vigil over the gardens, labyrinth and tree surrounding it.
