We become what we intend. And what we intend, we will do.
111 is a sacred number. It represents optimism, motivation, inspiration. What we experience on 1.11 will mark a new beginning. A true soul friendship with our Selves and others will take root. Through movement, meditation, a profound sound healing experience, and a self-reflective journey activity, we’ll gain learn how to manifest our most AUMazing life. Like the phoenix bird, we'll travel to the depths of the soul, and emerge as our most awesome Self primed to spread stoke!
This SoulJour Experience begins with longtime yoga and martial arts teacher, Nathan Mills, leading a slow, strong energy-moving practice, followed by grounding breathwork before we slip into a guided meditation. Our bodies and minds will be clear for a potent writing activity facilitated by Ashley Melin, founder of SoulJour. We cap off the evening lying on our backs for an incredible sound bath healing experience led by Eduardo Ballesteros. In this heart-activating sound healing journey with alchemy crystal bowls, we'll experience a new soul connection, deep healing, and revitalized energy. Maria Olaya, will play soulful classical guitar throughout the entire night.
