Upcoming Events

Earthtone Sound Healing for Gratitude

Limber Yoga, 7901 35TH Ave SW 2nd Floor, West Seattle, WA

How do you show yourself Gratitude? As we near the Holiday season, many of us fill our lists with things to do in preparation for family and friends, or for leaving our homes, traveling sometimes far distances to be with those we Love.

This afternoon’s Sound Bath for Gratitude will give you the opportunity to Honor Yourself, while floating on the healing tones of Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowls, Cello and Voice. Sonic architect Maria Scherer Wilson will guide your Sound Bath experience with Breathwork, Meditation, Intention Setting and Energy Healing.

Let us first gather to Nurture Self, and fill our own cups of Gratitude. We can experience physical healing, emotional clearing, energetic balancing and spiritual connection when we give ourselves permission to relax and fill our bodies with positive intentions and cosmic vibrations.

Based on ancient healing techniques, vibrations of sound work on a cellular level to recalibrate the mind, body and spirit. These healing frequencies balance the hemispheres of the brain, stimulate healing from within, promote a sense of inner peace, and reduce pain, inflammation, stress and anxiety.

Please bring anything that will enhance your experience (eye pillow, head pillow, soft blankets) and dress in comfy layers. Limber Yoga can provide bolsters, blankets and some chairs.

Space is limited to 14 receivers. Please register early to guarantee your spot. $30

The Hard Nut - The Nutcracker Reimagined w/Mark Morris Dance Group

 —  —

Paramount Theater, 901 Pine St, Seattle, WA 98101

AN OUTRAGEOUS NEW CHRISTMAS TRADITION The renowned Mark Morris Dance Group brings you a Nutcracker like no other. If you're tired of the same Christmas tradition year in and year out, then the outrageous modern dance revamp that is The Hard Nut is for you! Expect the spectacle of the Nutcracker ballet with a sprinkling of naughtiness and a whole lot of heart.

Combining classic elements of ETA Hoffman's beloved story and Tchaikovsky's quintessential score with Charles Burn's iconic black and white graphic art and Mark Morris kinetic and effervescent choreography, the production is transported to the 70s, where gender is fluid and the parties don't stop at midnight! It's a spirited and colorful love letter to the original that's big on humour yet also retains poignant moments, it's serious subject matter and emotion is handled with a light-hearted touch.

Cello & Crystal Alchemy for Solstice

 —  —

East West Bookshop, 6407 12TH Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115

This Winter Solstice, allow Cello & Crystal Alchemy, a unique Sound healing experience with Maria Scherer Wilson, to encourage the body to relax deeply, the spirit to float, and the mind to slow down, as the consciousness shifts into a harmonic sense of being. Participants will have the opportunity to ride the waves of peaceful vibration, expand their breath, chant sacred sounds and lift their consciousness.

The healing vibrations of Maria’s 100+ year old cello and the crystal singing bowls encourage deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit. As the brain waves slow down, the consciousness is encouraged to expand, and blockages from the physical, mental and energetic bodies released. Sonic healing has relieved pain, lessened anxiety, reduced inflammation and created feelings of peace, calmness, love and joy.

For complete comfort, please bring anything that will enhance your Sound Healing experience. If you’re choosing the floor for the event, bring a yoga mat, blanket, eye mask, ect. If you’re choosing to sit, you can bring your own meditation bench, or use a chair at East West. Wearing comfortable clothes and layers are recommended. Please refrain from wearing fragrances.
