As part of our 5Rhythms Endless Summer Waves series we are hosting sound practitioner Ocian Ward from Victoria, BC.

Yang energy is outgoing and directional. It is intention realized in action, through our belly, head and heart.

Yin energy is inward and receptive. It is the surrender that brings us home and manifests as a felt sense of ease in our body, openness in our hearts, and a space of quiet in our heads.

Come and join us for a magical evening of live sound and seductive beats!

$20 Drop in/ $16 reduced

No pre-registration is required, just come and dance.

I’d like to introduce a few of my friends

Who you choose, well that depends.

We have lady’s mantle & rose petal

Both of which, love the kettle. 

As the whistle steams and the water boils 

We call on the Feminine and she uncoils. 

From our vaginal walls to our esophagus lining 

These medicines swirl, our whole being aligning. 

The Ancients say, as above, so below. 

So here, we come, to embrace our flow. 

Lingering aromas of herb & dried flower,

Each moment revealing your depth & your power.

Stories be woven as threads unravel,  

This love & this journey, it’s not far to travel. 

These women and this body,

Receiving bliss & Samadhi. 

An experience for the Soul,

The truth lies in your bowl 

From laughter to weeping

This, is your steeping. 

- Karli Kuruz 

.

Sound Healing Cuddle Party
May

7:00 PM19:00

Sound Healing Cuddle Party

Join Angela and Ocian for a unique opportunity to be serenaded with the healing Soul Songs of SoundSeed Medicine Music while you rest in the embrace of community. We are coming together to bring you the combined benefits of a Cuddle Party with the personal healing and growth that comes with Ocian's incredible sound bath. Come with us on a beautiful 3 hour journey of affectionate touch, sound healing, and clear and conscious communication. Join us for this special evening of connection, kindness, healing, growth, and community. We gather in this safe space to explore touch and embrace this soft remembrance. 

▶▶▶ Love Exchange: $40 ◀◀◀

You can save your spot online: https://sound-healing-cuddles.eventbrite.com
OR via e-transfer: yyc.cuddles@gmail.com
You are also welcome to bring cash at the door (if there are spots still available)
 
~~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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Would you like to join us?

Wonderful, here are the details :)

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. 

LOCATION: The event is happening at Scarboro Community Centre, 1727 14 Ave SW, Calgary, AB. The doors and a large parking lot are located on the South side, beside the tennis courts - which is accessible via 15th Avenue.

Women's Cacao Ceremony and Herbal Yoni Steam (Calgary
May
17
7:00 PM19:00

Women's Cacao Ceremony and Herbal Yoni Steam (Calgary

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 on Thursday May 17 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 sactuary home of Ashley Dawn and Taylor Maxwell. We begin the evening with a checkin, and move into information and herb selection and into a delicious cacao ceremony. We then move easfully 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!

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 on Thursday May 10 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 sactuary home of Ashley Dawn and Taylor Maxwell.

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!

Spring Cleaning and Renewing Breathwork Session
Apr
25
6:30 PM18:30

Spring Cleaning and Renewing Breathwork Session

Spring is here. Do you feel ready to cleanse your body of stale air, old emotions, winter baggage and blockages that you may not even know are there?  
   Ready to renew your body with fresh air, revitalized energy and feel clear, comfortable and connected to the vital life force that serves you on your sacred path of life.
   Ocian Flo and Taiya Curle will create a safe and sacred space for you to experience Conscious Connected breathwork, also known as Aletheia breathwork.

“Aletheia Breathwork is an opportunity to engage the incredibly clarifying power of your primary life force… breath. Aletheia is a Greek word meaning “Truth” and it refers to "the state of not being hidden; the state of being evident." Through your own breath and willingness, you reveal your Self - a revealing that can have profound impact on your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.”
Trevor Yelich, Aletheia Breathwork Facilitator Trainer

As you lay down and connect your breath for one hour, Taiya and Ocian will offer tools to help you stay present, to move energy and emotions. They will share positive affirmations, acupressure, Reiki energy healing and sound healing. They will also guide you to tone with your voice and move your body at times to open up more to your healing experience and not get lots in old thoughts or patterns.

Aletheia Breathwork will:
• Give you more energy
• Help detoxify, restore, balance and oxygenate the cells
• Resolve repressed emotions allowing the release of negativity
• Accelerate spiritual growth through expanded awareness”

 This event will be at the Yurt, 5990 Old West Sannich Rd. 
 Car pooling will be available.
 Cost 40.00
A very good price for a special self care session.
 Please confirm registration with
 Taiya Curle 250-361-5122
 taiyacurle@gmail.com

 “In Breathwork, our breath is our teacher and our guide. It is the shaman that we go to for our initiations; the spirit that initiates us into awareness of our body, mind and essence; the vital energy that takes us from ordinary to non-ordinary levels. If we use our breath well, we deal wisely with the emotions and unhappiness that arise in everyday human experience, cope with our existential crises, have access to transcendental states of consciousness, and live our life with reverence in the light of deep spiritual realizations.” (Manne,2004)

Taiya Curle has been a professional bodyworker since 2000. She mainly works out of Victoria BC but also does a lot of Mobile massage sessions and Reiki workshops around Vancouver Island
She is a certified Reiki Master Teacher and Aletheia Breathwork facilitator. She creates a safe and sacred space for you to relax and surrender to deep healing experiences. More info on her web page www.windblossommassage.ca

Come in and take a seat.

I’d like to introduce a few of my friends
Who you choose, well that depends.
We have lady’s mantle & rose petal
Both of which, love the kettle. 
As the whistle steams and the water boils
We call on the Feminine and she uncoils. 
From our vaginal walls to our esophagus lining
These medicines swirl, our whole being aligning. 
The Ancients say, as above, so below. 
So here, we come, to embrace our flow. 
Lingering aromas of herb & dried flower,
Each moment revealing your depth & your power.
Stories be woven as threads unravel,  
This love & this journey, it’s not far to travel. 
These women and this body,
Receiving bliss & Samadhi. 
An experience for the Soul,
The truth lies in your bowl
From laughter to weeping
This, is your steeping. 
- Karli Kuruz

Breathwork and Sacred Sound
Mar
10
6:00 PM18:00

Breathwork and Sacred Sound

Come harness the alchemy of breath and sound, which are both essential to life, join Ocian and Lex for a powerful and transformational journey through sound and breath.

Breathwork Benefits: 
Breathwork has profound benefits, and is an on-going practice. Performing Aletheia breathwork enables you to......
Oxygenate
Restore
Detox
Gain Clarity
Express suppressed emotions
Release old tensions
Amplify Energy
Expand awareness
Remove negative blocks
Forgive past occurrences
Feel empowered
Cultivate inspiration
Settle into a deep relaxed state
Tap into your truest you
To take a moment, and really, just really breathe. 

Technical Aspects of Aletheia Breathwork:
There are a few key parts to the breathing pattern:
1. It is conscious so you are very aware of the fact you are breathing
2. It is connected so that the natural pause between the inhale and exhale is merged, creating a continuous loop of breath.
3. It is relaxed, meaning the exhale is relaxed, and there is emphasis on the inhale.
4. It is open, meaning it is performed with a wide open mouth. 
5. It is deep, meaning you are breathing fully into the lower belly, and all the way up into the chest.

What a typical session looks like:
Discussing and explaining Breathwork and it’s intentions.
Guided meditation, assisted by sound healing and deep relaxation.
You will lie on your back and breathe for about an hour, and in this time you will be offered positive affirmations as well as hands on acupressure and vocal toning sounds to enhance more breath movement.
A closing savasana with deep relaxation, further sound healing and energetic clearing.
A final discussion of the journey to help you understand and process with time to share if you feel called to do so. 
Time afterwards for further integration, to stay and journal or have some tea and ground yourself. There will also be time to speak with the facilitators privately. 
You will walk away with a new found refreshed perspective on your life, feeling like you truly enabled yourself to integrate and release that which no longer serves you. Walking away with a feeling of a fresh start. 

 

Bring: yoga mat, blanket, pillow, water bottle, comfortable warm clothing, a journal if you wish, and something to add to the altar.

Investment: $59 + tax.

Note: If you are currently going through any mental conditions, or are on any medications, have glaucoma, please email lex and explain what is currently happening. Trust that anything you share via email will be received in confidence and will be kept as so. Please do not feel shy or embarrassed to share, we all have something that we are working on.

Sound Portal and Air Elemental Shamanic Journey
Feb

6:00 PM18:00

Sound Portal and Air Elemental Shamanic 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 Sound Activation Portal, 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 elemental Air in Celtic traditions. This is a space to reach our air being ally, totems and power animals for messages, information, gifts and advice from Air and our most trusted unseen allies.

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

PLEASE BRING: 
-$11-$22 sliding scale offering
-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.

SoundSeed Medicine Journey
Feb

7:00 PM19:00

SoundSeed Medicine Journey

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.
