Taster Session Information:
*Shamanic Drumming (please book via this link )
My name is Arya White Raven, and founder of Spirit Tree Visions. I am a Shamanic Practitioner, Reiki Master and Druid, and I host regular drum circles at the Ecology Centre.
Shamanic Drumming is one of the most ancient forms of communication and healing known to mankind…. Practised by shamans and indigenous shamanic communities throughout the world……since the dawn of humankind and is now emerging as a significant therapeutic tool in the modern technological age
Shamans throughout the globe use the drum as a means of connecting with their spirit guides to facilitate healing and divination.
Shamanic drumming is not musical entertainment.
In circles, the primal, repetitive beat of the drum can induce a relaxed trance like state of being, providing an opportunity to connect with your own spirit at a deeper level and spirit guides and teachers. We also use chanting and singing, and everyone takes part.
I also facilitate a Shamanic journey in each of the circles, a form of meditation.
The sacred space that I hold in these circles allows people to gather in the spirit of true community and share with a sense of connectedness, not only with each other but with Mother Earth. We live in a world that is becoming increasingly fragmented. The circles provide a container where like-minded people come together to offer each other support and healing ….. and have fun too.
On the open day, I will have drums for loan so that people can experience a circle firsthand.
*Groove Dance Party(please book via this link )
The Groove DANCEfloor is a dynamically interactive and creative group dance experience. Your facilitator will UNITE everyone in a simple movement or rhythm with great music, but you get to dance it your own UNIQUE way.
While exploring various styles and genres, we encourage you to enjoy and feel good in your body every step along the way. You’ll experience everything from slow, delicious meditative grooves to heart-thumping and strength building cardio beats—the perfect recipe to nurture your body, mind, heart and soul.
This is an outdoor event, and you should come in weather appropriate clothing.
*Guided Walk (please book via this link)
Join us for a 45min tour of the ecology site highlighting the natural habits and wildlife we have around the loch.
*Kids Craft Activities (please book via this link )
1-hour child lead craft activities. For each session, we will make something different for children to take home. Ages 6-11 years
*Nia Taster Class (please book in via this link)
Nia is a holistic movement practise that addresses each aspect of your life - body, mind and soul. Combining dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia conditions and strengthens your body while transforming your mind. Each workout combines mindfulness and dynamic movement, leaving you energised, mentally clear and emotionally balanced.
This is an outdoor event; please come in weather-appropriate clothing.
*Unfurljourneys (please book via this link)
Trained by ANSU School of Sound in the Borders 2 years ago, Helen offers deeply nourishing and restorative sound healing that 'unfurls'.
Using a combination of instruments, singing bowls, chimes and her voice, Helen creates a beautiful and gentle space to unwind, open and release like the fern in nature.
As the fern opens and unfurls as it grows, Helen's journeys with sound encourage this unravelling for your own personal growth and wellbeing.
She warmly invites anyone to come and receive the benefits that sound healing can bring and help smooth those frazzled edges.
