Event description

Description

Join us for an afternoon of yin yoga practice followed by a Sakha Siberian Ritual Healing Practice, all supported by a sound healing bath. 



In this work, ritual space is first created through authentic speech, somatic practice to open the body, and meditative soundscapes to access the unconscious mind. Yin yoga calms the mind and nervous system, gently stretching the joints and connective tissues. The practice enables you to turn inward, focussing on the breath and stillness within. Sound can soothe you, raise your consciousness, and carry you into other realms of experience.

Laura Perlin was initiated into this Sakha (Siberian) collective healing practice in 2017 by her mentor YLLYKTAAKH, a shaman & traditional healer from Nyurbinskii Uluus, Sakha Republic, Russian Federation. The willing presence of each participant is required to create a safe group container that will support healing and transformation in the ways that are most necessary for personal & collective growth. After moving through the preparatory practices, participants will lie comfortably on the floor while Laura facilitates the healing work with support of her ancestors and spirit family. Hands on healing may be a part of the practice (with participant consent).

After the trance portion of the practice concludes, participants have time to journal & gather themselves, after which we engage in a group share of our experiences. The group share is an integral piece of traditional Sakha ritual and allows the collective assembled to share in the wealth of conscious and unconscious wisdom that has been brought back from the spirit world. All practices will be conducted with careful attention to ritual safety, in a non-hierarchical environmental of mutual respect and confidentiality.

This three-hour workshop includes practices of:

  • Opening circle to establish trust, consent & a collective container
  • Yin yoga & somatic practice to quiet the mind & open the body
  • Collective group ritual healing practice
  • Supportive soundscapes with tibetan & crystal bowls, chimes, rattles & khomus
  • Traditional sharing circle
  • Time for silence, reflection & integration
