Join musical trio Vesper in ceremony as we honor and celebrate June’s Full Strawberry Moon — setting new intentions and allowing ones from previous seasons to ripen for harvest.
Vesper’s interactive and holistic healing experience will integrate yoga, heart-opening cacao, breathwork and an epic Middle Eastern soundscape with violin, vocals, sacred sound instruments, and Sufi dance (featuring whirling dervish Hannaneh Shahshahani).
Vesper means "evening" in Roman Latin and comes from the Ancient Greek Hesperos, which is the "Evening Star", the planet Venus in the evening. Our ceremonies draw from sacred traditions around the world to create powerful healing experiences without attachments to dogma.
You can expect:
Deep Restorative Healing
Spiritual Guidance from Within
This is an opportunity to deepen your connection, embrace your light and burn your brilliance for the benefit of all.
*We invite you to eat light with ideally 2 hours to digest before ceremony.
*Comfortable clothes and a comfy blanket are encouraged.
*Please plan to arrive at 6:45. We will start promptly at 7pm.
ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Angelica Hernandez is a compassionate, intuitive, caring, and adventurous being with a passion to serve and inspire others. She has a drive to help the planet in becoming a more conscious, intergrated, peaceful, and sustainable place to live. Yoga amongst other healing arts have truly helped her on the journey of diving deep into self awareness, personal growth, understanding, and self care.
Her experience with body alignment practices began with studying Dance Conditioning in 2008. After experiencing the physical benefits and transformation of her spinal alignment within her first semester, she was intrigued by this process. Later navigating through several life challenges, she found herself drained, depressed, and unsure of her path and sense of self. In search of relief and clarity, she attended a Hatha Yoga class. She creates and holds a safe container for all to explore and dive into their inner depths of healing and knowledge. It is a deep honor for her to share and offer these sacred practices. She is certified in Vinyasa Yoga-RYT 200, Therapeutic Yoga, as well as Soma Veda Thai Yoga.
