FullSizeRender (2)Full Moon Gong Bath

The full moon is an excellent time to release what is no longer serving you.  The gong bath enhances the releasing process.  Participants may bring a yoga mat and other items (i.e. pillow, blanket, eye cover, bottle of water) 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.  Contact Deb Jennings for more information. 515-371-0725 or soundsforthesouldj@gmail.com.

Poetry Workshop with Judy Olson and Deb Jennings

Join Facilitator Judy Olson, with Deb Jennings of Sounds of the Soul, for Poetry: Language of the Soul. Poetry that we judyolsonimagesread or write can touch us at the soul level, in a way that no other words can. Like music, it is a language that the soul understands and speaks. This three-hour workshop offers you an opportunity to share poetry you love (yours and/or that of others), read the poetry of the others, write your own poetry and share it if you like. You’ll experience a host of activities designed to touch the deepest parts of you and ignite your inner poet, including the sounds of crystal and Tibetan bowls. You’ll have opportunities to give and receive feedback about the poetry we write. You may even see your work in print and/or hear it in the form of a song.

To register: email swauson@plymouthchurch.com or call Stephanie at 515-255-3149.

Registration fees will be collected at the door.

Celebrations of Spirit

Geral Blanchard speaks on Indigenous Values That Promote Healing Join us for this month’s Celebrations of Spirit where GGeral Blanchard (2)eral Blanchard, L.P.C., speaks on Indigenous Values that Promote Healing. Geral will share several indigenous values, including how resuming close ties to Nature can heal us of our modern-day afflictions.

New Moon Gong Bath at 6:30 p.m.

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. Contact Deb Jennings for more information. 515-371-0725 or soundsforthesouldj@gmail.com.

Cost:  $10 suggested love offering.
