“Shen” Spirit of the Heart

Join Stefanie Miska and Ocian Ward for a delightful and meditative acupuncture & sound session. Your Body, Mind and Soul will be nourished by this combination of medicines. Rest in the cradle of the sound as your body receives the healing of Stephanie’s hands and heart.

We begin with a gentle meditation to allow people to fully arrive. We have a short sharing circle then after a quick break, we settle in. Stefanie will be facilitating the acupuncture treatment focusing on the heart organ and meridian system. By stimulating these points on the body, one is able to soften deeper into themselves while opening up to connect with spirit. Rest during your acupuncture session with the soothing sounds of crystal bowls, crystal Lyre, tripple drone flute, Steel & medicine drum, rattles, chimes and etheric vocals.

Come away feeling each cell of your body touched by the heart with the subtle healing vibrations of the sound as your own energetic body opens to higher & higher frequencies of health, wholeness and longevity.

Vibrational Activation Journey

Vibrational Activation Journey

WELCOME

Join Jordi Lydia Klassen and Ocian Ward in this Journey of activation, expression and alignment of our internal energy systems. 

This Journey is created to take you through an activation of your Sacred Centres; [Chakra System] through opening up your vocal chords, stimulating your breath cycle, and by entering into your personal power by having the ability to express and feel your inner strength, hear your inner song, and feel your authentic frequency.

We journey you through Shamanic Sound through the use of various instruments and vocal expressions, which leads you through the inner sound scape and the voices of the ancestors to help you find your way home into your embodied self. Through the activated senses, awakened systems, and stimulated frequency chambers, you are able to experience your beingness through an awakened, conscious state within deep relaxation and expansion. 

This is an inner exploration, however in harmonizing our vocal expressions, we unite within unity consciousness, internally and externally, gifting ourselves with a higher state of being. Embrace the authentic tracks of love and harmony, evolve your consciousness, and embrace your truthful expression. 

——— 

BREATH, AUTHENTIC VOICE and OUR NATURAL SOUND are some of our greatest healing tools. 

Our breath; supports us in exploring inward, in nourishing our body, minds and spirits with life force, and in feeding the external world with our out-breath. Our breath gives us the ability to transform and transmute energy, gives us the awareness we need to move through what is going on beneath our surface, and gifts us with a passageway into our hearts.

Our voice; when we hear our own selves speak truth and affirm our authentic selves, can gift us with assurance and healing towards our natural state of being, in flow with what it is we truly desire and what is truthfully in alignment with our Sacred Path. 

Our sound; tone and vibrational frequency can help to carry us home, into the Medicine Song of the Soul, into the Heart of Unity, and into the Roots of our Primal Being. Our bodies resonate on a cellular, microcosmic level with sound and with vibrations. A simple beat can lull us home into comfort and ease, a melody can carry us through time into a space once known, and a subtle whisper can create a response within a moment. 

Woven together, we use these three natural healing components to elevate our awareness, to heighten our senses and to anchor us in to presence. When we do this, we can begin to heal, transform and lift our spirits, sustainably, naturally and within our own ability to do so.

SoundSeed Journey + Cacao Elixir

Join Ocian Ward & friends for a special Aquarius New Moon Cacao Elixir & musical journey to bring the plant spirits to life!

This sound journey is activated by the sacred plant and sound vibrations we will each hold in circle. This combination of plant and musical medicine has been shared in many cultures the world over. In my experience, plants love to be sung to. Weather its walking through the forest, or sitting in an age old plant ceremony, every living being enjoys the beauty of a soft, soothing melody. Come together for this magical circle to discover how this sacred cacao plant and sound medicine sings within your being. Cacao is known as the great plant of the heart, as it stimulates circulation and blood flow and releases the ‘love hormones’ in the brain. Sound can activate this, creating a sense of aliveness and yet allow participants to rest in the sense of calm, rejuvinating each cell in the body.

Yoni Steam and SoundSeed Ceremony

Yoni Steam and SoundSeed Ceremony

  • 1431 Northmount Drive Northwest Calgary, AB, T2L 0G5 Canada (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We are women. We are the womb of humanity. When we gather, we have the power and potential to move mountains, if we choose. Let us nurture this power together in gentle solidarity. Embracing ourselves just as we are; while simultaneously growing in the truth of oneness. We do not fight against, but rather stand for our whole human family. 


As sisters, we come together to share in our health and wealth in a nurturing, safe, supportive space. We will set the tone of the evening to be a deep exploration of our diverse creative, passionate sister-hood in the beautiful sanctuary home of The Hive. We begin the evening with a checkin, and move into information and herb selection and into a delicious tea ceremony. We then move gracefully into the steam while Ocian serenades us with her beautiful sounds. 


What is a yoni steam? 

Yoni steam: a steam for the yoni (a Sanskrit word meaning Source of life, vagina) we use specific herbal blends brewed into a tea. We women wrap ourselves in towels and blankets and literally sit on top of the bowl or pot with the warmed herbal brew made especially for your yoni... 

Physiologically, the very sensitive tissues of the vagina are easily able to absorb all the nutrients of the herbs used, surprisingly this practice does effect the inner walls, lining even the uterus and womb itself. This practice has incredible medicinal qualities to offer your mental, emotional space as well as physical and energetic results. There are herbs that are uterine stimulants that help regulate bleeding, there are cleansing and detoxing herbs that flush out stagnant energies and toxins, there are other herbs that help calm, soothe and offer your feminine force a space to receive and nurture. Every person with a yoni/vagina NEEDS to experience the amazing sensations and healing of the ancient ritual, the Yoni Steam. A profound experience indeed!

Schedule: 6:45pm doors open

OR via e-transfer: yyc.cuddles@gmail.com

~~What is a Cuddle Party?~~


Cuddle Party is a workshop experience where participants engage in communication exercises, explore touch in a non-sexual space, experience personal exploration and intimacy, and have fun with like minded friends from the community.


Cuddle Party is a formal, non-sexual event. It is a holistic, social environment, that attracts fascinating people from all walks of life. It provides a special and unique opportunity for connection, learning and growth.


You can come to a Cuddle Party to meet new people, to enjoy amazing conversations, to touch, to be touched, to have fun, to practice asking for what you want, to practice saying “no” to what you don’t want — all in a setting structured to be a safe place for exploration and enjoyment. 


~~What are the benefits of attending?~~


Nurturing and consensual loving touch is good for maintaining healthy blood pressure, a strong nervous system and a balanced emotional health. One’s ability to connect with and develop greater trust in others is emphasized during the group exchanges during the Cuddle Party. Self-care is a cornerstone of Cuddle Party experience.


Cuddle Party lets you:

* Learn clear and easy ways to communicate

* Set limits simply and straightforwardly

* Give and receive enjoyable non-sexual touch in a safe setting, where your boundaries are respected.


At a Cuddle Party you gain:

* Clarity and confidence

* Boundary and communication skills

* Comfort, support and encouragement

* The secrets to welcome, relaxed, non-sexual touch


The skills you learn at Cuddle Party translate into every day life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier.


~~What is Ocian's Sound Healing?~~

SoundSeed Medicine Music can be described as a shamanic journey. Laying down, participants can go into a deep almost a trance-like state. Ocian begins with the soft reminder to breathe while the body softens tention and finds relaxation. A moment of stillness brings in the opportunity to set an intention for this dive into our subconscious. Ocian guides participants into the breath, the body, and the mind to create a safe container for us all to work with the sound as therapy or medicine. This is a practice of witnessing and listening deeply to how your body, both physical and energetic and your mind, both emotional and mental, responds to the different sounds during the session. The more you put into this experience, the more you get out of it, you being your own healer, this is a gateway to finding your own resonance and alignment. 


~~What will the evening look like?~~


We open with a Welcome Circle - about 1 hour for everyone to introduce themselves, to go over the 11 cuddle party rules, and to participate in a few ice-breaker exercises to help everyone get comfortable. We teach communication and boundary skills in ways that are lighthearted and fun.


Then we open up for an hour of ‘free-style’ cuddling. You have plenty of time to relax, share a hug, give or recieve a back rub, have a conversation, snuggle up with friends new and old, draw, journal, laugh, practice saying 'No', or just unwind after a long day.


Typically, people enjoy foot-rubs, back rubs, spooning, nuzzling, and just generally snuggling up together. Some people like to settle in for a period of time, others like to try shorter times with a variety of people.


Then, at 9pm, you will be offered the opportunity to settle into a spot and get comfortable, by yourself or with others, while Ocian takes us on a beautiful 45 minute sound journey. This session includes Crystal Bowls, Crystal Lyre, Crystal didjeridu, Zaphir and Koshi Chimes, Rattles, drum and others, along with her etheric and powerful voice. 


Afterwards, we will bring the evening to a close with a short closing circle.


~~Who Attends?~~


People of all ages (18+), genders, sexual orientations, body shapes/sizes/abilities, cultural backgrounds, and relationship statuses are welcome to attend! New people are encouraged to join. 


If you are in a relationship, we ask that you check in with yourself and/or your partner(s) to ensure that attending the Cuddle Party falls within your relationship agreements before attending. :)


We ask that you come with a thoughtful and open mind; A fun-loving, compassionate, and non-judgmental attitude; And a willingness to act with integrity in a conscious and mindful way.

TIME: Doors open at 6:30pm, registration is complete by 6:50. The doors are locked and event starts at 7:00pm sharp. The cuddle party comes to a close at 10pm.


ARRIVE ON TIME: The opening Welcome Circle is for introductions and to go over the rules of Cuddle Party. This is an important aspect of the Cuddle Party experience and creates a safe container for all participants. It is essential that everyone be on time.

"I had the opportunity to go to a cuddle party hosted my Angela and Amber. At first I wasn't sure what to think, but as the evening progressed I was relieved to feel as safe as I did. Both Angela and Amber provided the best experience of feeling truly nurtured in the safe container of sacred space. There was no obligations or judgments from anyone and I felt very comfortable to laugh, cry and just be held safely. It was a beautiful experience that I would recommend to anyone!! Thanks again to you both for creating this space of compassionate energy! Much love."


"Relaxation, contentment, the warmth of a caring unjudging human touch. I forgot all my problems and could just focus on being with another person in a loving caring atmosphere."

Sonic Bloom Shamanic Sound Journey

Sonic Bloom Shamanic Sound Journey

Sound is the primordial source of all manifestation, and the human voice is the most powerful and dynamic instrument on Earth. Through the creation of vibration we may access the infinite potential of Spirit. In this Sonic Bloom Sound, we gather in ceremonial circle to open our hearts and voices fully through exploration of the sonic sphere. With tones and frequencies generated entirely by our voices we unlock vibrational keys held deep in our beings. This is a safe, powerful and fun container to explore freedom of voice and expression, allowing the inner and outer sounds to harmonize into a tangible field of collective healing.

We will explore with our most powerful tool, our voice and continue the sound exploration with a guided shamanic journey into the Earth Elemental in Celtic traditions. This is a space to reach our ancestors, spirit guide allies, totems and power animals of the earth realm for messages and connect with our most trusted unseen allies. We also find in the fire our ability to transform and transmute. Let this force run through you! 

There will be time for integration, journaling and sharing to close. 

PLEASE BRING: 
-warm layered clothing
-cushions and blankets as needed (some provided) 
-a small snack to share after close
-altar pieces 

Ocian will be your guide for this evenings sound and journey exploration.

Registration required. Please inquire for the directions to the location. *google will only take you to the corner with the address given. You’ll need directions to find the Yurt from there.

Sacred Space: Cannibis and Sound Ceremony

Join Ocian with SoundSeed Medicine Journeys and Nature's Chef, Tom Kral for a ceremonial smoke circle in sacred tipi space. We'll explore the incredible benefits and healing abilities of both plant and sound together. 

We will share in an opening intention and herbal smoke circle, then rest upon the earth and cocoon ourselves in the nurturing sound bath of SoundSeed Medicine. This shamanic journey is held between the spaces of your own intention, and the collective yes to explore these foundational medicines of life. 

As we come down from journey Chef Tom will offer nourishment from the landscape to ground us. Nature inspired plant based, gluten free light snack and wild tea provided. There will be lots of integration and sharing time so we don't feel rushed to leave. 

*Please arrive at for 4pm for our ceremony start at 4:20pm. ;)

PLEASE BRING: yoga mat or camping mattress (some provided), blanket, cushion, journal.

If you'd like to bring plant medicine or snacks to share please do.

Keep in mind this is a semi-outside event, please prepare yourself so you have a comfortable experience. (ie. your body temperature will decrease when lying still for the sound journey, so bring warm layers.)

* Parking is recommended on Ella Road: you can pull to the right of the forest edge then walk down our driveway. The address, 7239/7237, marked on driftwood signage is quite visible, but in case you miss it, it's the 5th driveway down Ella Road to the left. Stay to the right of the house and you will see a trail behind the trampoline that leads to the tipi. Come in and make yourself a nest.
