Stepping into Service Workshop

During this workshop, we will look at transmutation from being self-serving into stepping into service of others.  We peace3will ask “How can I serve today?” and “Who needs my love today?”  It is not about neglecting ourselves to take care of others, but rather, learning who our authentic true selves are, and by taking ownership of who we are, how we can step into service of others, and through that, how we learn to love ourselves even more. During this gathering, we will do some preliminary work to open ourselves.  We will do a few chants, experience some breath work, use essential oils, learn a practice from the Ho’o’pono pono tradition, and dive deeply into a meditation with the gong. This will help us open to sharing about being of service, being our true and authentic selves, relating with one another, and how love and compassion is the basis for our stepping into service. We will understand how we must raise our vibration first, which expands us into higher consciousness, and THEN step into service.  We will contemplate and then discuss how we want to give our gifts in service. Rev. Cynthia Leveque and others from the community will speak about service opportunities. If you have been feeling called to step into service, this event is for you.  If you have asked yourself “what really matters?” this event is for you.  If you feel like there is something you are called to be doing to be of service to others, but have no idea what it is, this event is for you.  If you are already being of service, this event is for you-come share your inspirations.  1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Suggested love offering $25

Location:  Unity of Des Moines, 414 31st Street, Des Moines, Iowa

New Moon Gong Bath

The new moon is the perfect time to create what you want to manifest in your life.  The sun and the moon’s gravitational pull at the time of the new moon can be overwhelming to those who are sensitive to energy.  The new moon gong bath assists us to cope with these energies, and stay connected with our mind, body and spirit, utilizing the moon energy as a healing experience.

The sound of the gong “re-tunes” us on many levels, bringing us into harmony and deep levels of inner peace.  These sounds work on a cellular level as well as an emotional level.  Participants may bring a yoga mat and other items for their comfort.  You will be “bathed” in sound during this session.  The gong sounds will help detoxify the body.  (Be sure to drink plenty of pure water following the session.)  The sounds of the gong will remind you of your inner ability to be in bliss, as well as take you into a state of deep relaxation and peacefulness. 6:30 p.m. Contact Deb Jennings for more information. 515-371-0725 or soundsforthesouldj@gmail.com.

Cost:  $10 suggested love offering.
