Release and Renew with Xerephine and Keshua

Release and Renew!
An Evening of Immersive Sound & Movement with Xerephine and Keshua
Join us as we dive into the mystery of alchemical sound and movement. We will be indulging in the rich healing properties found in our reiki infused organic cacao, CBD and Mugwort, while we move together (using gentle and traditional trance dance steps) through sound and vibration.

Vali Soul Sanctuary
6717 Valmont Rd
Boulder CO 80301
Sept 24th: 7PM-9PM

Keshua will lead our sound journey with Crystal Tones Alchemy quartz crystal bowls, enriched with Xerephine’s angelic choir like vocals, trance inducing drumming and gentle percussive soundscapes that may lead you on a path of surrender and discovery…

This sound and movement journey will then lead into a unique performance of Xerephine’s own music, featuring her uniquely beautiful voice, live harp and bodhran whilst still being complimented by Keshua’s percussive soundscapes and healing crystal bowls. Stripped down chamber / synthy backdrops provide the canvas for a type of catharsis that comes with the modern age we live in. The set is an exploration into the more hidden parts of the human psyche as well as the hopeful childlike spirit we all hope to embrace and embody. We will be listening to this music in low lighting and suggest bringing a notepad for your own expressions and a scarf with which you can dance freely and openly or retreat into as you explore your own inner landscape.

Xerephine has been performing on the Festival Circuit for some years with main stage performances at Arise Festival (CO), Sonic Bloom (CO), Tribal Vision Festival (NM), Earth Dance Festival (CA), LoveSeed Festival (CA) and many other stages large and small along the way. She has co-hosted musical based workshops and opened & / or collaborated with members of Elephant Revival, Ayla Nereo, Rising Appalachia, Michael travis (String cheese), Marya Stark, OTT, Phutureprimitive, Liberation Movement, Octopus Nebula, The Luminaries and Lunar Fire amongst many others.

"Xerephine's music is creative and refreshing. Hypnotic songs dipped in magic and steeped in beauty. I love it."
-Kurt Bauman (Sea Stars, Kan'nal and Adam Freeland Live Band)

" Xerephine offers us a ceremonial celebration shared in her uniquely beautiful modern expression. She moves audiences to connect deeper to the vulnerable part of the human heart"
- J. Brave (Luminaries)

She intricately weaves these healing energies bringing people together through the freeing discovery of transcendental divine connection.

Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/orenda
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/orendabass/

A fixture in the underground bass music scene in the Bay Area, Trevor nurtured a fierce love for bass music and its intensely passionate followers. Inspired by the brilliant musicians that rose from the San Francisco underground, Trevor decided to further explore his passion and returned to school to study electronic music production. Hitting the scene hard under the new moniker “Orenda,” he began to put his imprint on the scene with a unique fusion of tribal world music, and powerful west coast bass. In a live show context, Orenda conveys a marriage of the two opposing ideas, resulting in mixes that are ethereal and alluring, as well as powerful and aggressive. Straying from the predictable, rise and fall cliches of the modern dancefloor, Orenda embarks on a musical journey that leaves an otherworldly impression.

Sound Journey and Ceremony with Sound Rise Alchemy
Sep

7:00 PM19:00

Sound Journey and Ceremony with Sound Rise Alchemy

Join us for an alchemical blend of instruments, songs, shamanic & energetic healing! Enjoy a truly unique, heart-opening experience with the vibrational harmonics of Crystal & Tibetan singing bowls, didgeridoos, gongs, handpans, native flutes, tuning forks, drums & sacred songs. Allow yourself to be rejuvenated, invigorated & inspired by the frequency of Love! Alyssa and Prasad are dedicated to bringing healing, love, compassion and well-being into the world. Their deepest prayer is to help people awaken, to remember their power and intrinsic ability to heal themselves. They have happily been working in collaboration for over 5 years.

What’s a Sound Journey? A Sound Journey is similar to a guided meditation. Participants often lay down & are not required “to do” anything; simply relax & receive the music. It provides an excellent therapy for stress related issues, depression, fatigue, anger & hostility, feelings of fear, separation and loneliness, along with many other conditions related to the lack of balance & harmony in the body. The resonating sounds of the sacred instruments induce theta brain waves which promote a spontaneous state of meditation and relaxation. Listeners often experience a sense of connectedness and peace as the sacred sound of the gong offers listeners access to parts of the mind that are usually closed, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness and higher consciousness. Sound Healing is often used to rebalance, tone and bring harmony to the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.


About Alyssa: Alyssa has been studying various forms of the healing arts for over 13 years, including crystal and sound healing, Reiki, shamanic techniques and Nature-based ceremony. She has been walking the medicine path with deep reverence, honor and curiosity, creating a rooted and powerful ancient spirit connection, and has worked with many incredible teachers. She was Reiki level 1 & 2 certified at 21 years old, and Crystal Healing certified in 2008. She is passionate about being of service to this beautiful Planet and in assisting others in aligning with love and finding inspiration to live their highest truth. She brings her gifts to this world as an intuitive healer and joy-bringer through song, dance, prayer, creating beauty and care-taking the Earth and waters.

About Prasad: Prasad is a talented multi-instrumentalist & student of sound healing. He is passionate about sharing music with the world, and his kind and nurturing heart and spirit shine brightly through his intricate sound creations. He was exposed to many forms of spirituality and energy healing at a very young age, but found his calling exploring the healing aspects of music 7yrs ago when he experienced a profound transformation through music and South American shamanism. He has acquired the most diverse collection of sound healing tools in Colorado on his journey, including gongs, crystal and Tibetan bowls, handpans, didgeridoos tuning forks & much more. The instruments have been his greatest teacher & he aspires to "get out of their way" when playing. In striving to learn as much as possible he has trained with Toby Christensen & studied sound healing extensively. Prasad leads The Boulder Drum Circle as well as playing various gigs & collaborating with his partner, Alyssa, as Sound Rise Alchemy.

Fundraiser Ceremony: Children Cancer Hospital+Terreiro
Aug
26
7:00 PM19:00

Fundraiser Ceremony: Children Cancer Hospital+Terreiro

Healing Ceremony & Fundraiser
August 26th at 7 PM

For this ceremony, all donation proceeds will go directly to two very important and beloved community resources in Brazil.

1) For this ceremony, you are welcome to bring a small bag of gently used clothes, jackets, toys, jewelry, shoes, purses, etc in addition to a monetary donation. When we return to Brazil in September for training, we will donate these materials to the Children’s Cancer Hospital in Curitiba, Brazil called Hospital Pequeno Príncipe. We visited this hospital many times and have no doubt all donated items will go to help kids and their families during a very hard time. Any extra items too big to fit in our suitcases will be donated to Title I schools in Commerce City.

2) In Brazil, therapy and mental health counseling are financially available only to a small margin of people. So where do people go when they need help and a place for their pain to be held? Most cannot afford therapy and instead go to a spiritual house of Umbanda, or a terreiro. The terreiro is a weekly home for everybody in Brazil regardless of income and performs healing services for no cost or donations. Our mother terreiro is the oldest in Curitiba, Brazil and has been in the same family for generations. It serves an important role in the neighborhood and the community. Recently the roof was ruined by a hailstorm and all proceeds will go to help the terreiro repair the roof.

Hosts: Brazilian medium Cyro Estevao and Nicole de Lima, initiates and practitioners of the African-Brazilian religion Umbanda

Ceremony: Receive energy healing, sacred song, spoken one-on-one help, and birthday cake afterwards for Nicole!

Contribution: $10-$30 recommended donation at the door, bag of donated items if you'd like, and RSVP kindly requested.

There are many ways to contribute:
1) Cash at the door
2) Venmo to nicole-kennerly-1
3) PayPal to nicole.kennerly@gmail.com

Details and to RSVP: www.orixaceremony.wixsite.com/umbanda

Muito obrigado. Beijos!

Phoenix Clay Hollingsworth
MORNING Ecstatic Dance

Totem is the solo project of Boulder based producer, Phoenix Clay Michael. Phoenix has been playing eastern-style instrumentation for over a decade(tabla, doumbek, darbuki, didgeridoo, ric, native flute etc). With Totem, Phoenix explores the digital domain with rich melodies, psychedelic synths, and exotic instrumentation. Totem culminates these two passions into a modern interpretation of ancient instruments. The sampling style is deep and visceral. Blending sequences of thick bass and instrumentation with live production. Live production includes: Didgeridoo, vocals, synth, keyboard, percussion, and bass. Phoenix's debut album with Totem is titled, The Bonfire of Life, and was written as a motion of solidarity with the native tribes of North America. Totem sees the immense potency that dance has for healing in our culture, and also sees the reverent nature of ancient and native style music. The ultimate thrill is fusing these two things into a continuous musical experience shared amongst listener and maker. Totem is humbled to bring thy dance medication. Aho

Outdoor Flower Healing Ceremony

7 PM on August 12th
Vali Soul Sanctuary in Boulder

Receive the energy of flowers to be filled up, release stagnation, and bring in the vibrancy of joy, love, and healing.

Outdoor flower healing ceremonies welcome beauty, connection, and deep healing into our lives. Join us for the beautiful Brazilian tradition of limpezas, or spiritual cleansings, using sacred herbalism and energy healing. We will be preparing the herb wash, or banho in Portuguese, for the Vali Soul Sanctuary that generously shares its space with our community ceremonies. The herb wash uses the 7 Orixá Herbs, or Sete Ervas in Portuguese, including rose, bay leaf, lavender, fern, and more.

To spiritually cleanse the space and those in attendance, we will work with the feminine water lines of the Orixás Oxum and Yemanjá using sacred song in the outdoors. After the outdoor ceremony, we will head inside and hold traditional energy healing in the lines of Orixás/Caboclos without consults.

After the ceremony, we will have Yemanjá and Oxum candle bundles and 7 Orixá Herbs for sale with detailed instruction so that you can learn the Sete Ervas recipe, prepare it, and use it to wash yourself, your loved ones, and your space. We will also have other Orixá and spiritual merchandise for devotional altars, sacred herbalims, and spiritual work for sale.

This is our giving back to the Vali Soul Ceremony space and a chance for us to share with you African-Braziilan spirituality’s simple approach to using flowers and herbs to bring balance, beauty, and connection to our lives.

Find Your Power Animal and Breathwork
Aug
10
10:00 AM10:00

Find Your Power Animal and Breathwork

Join us Saturday August 10th at Vali Soul Sanctuary for a Shamanic Journey to Find Your Power Animal and Breathwork.

This workshop will provide a safe, sacred space that will enable you to develop and/or hone skills to:
-Meet and work with your Power Animal
-Trust your intuition and spiritual connection
-Set clear intentions
-Enter into multi-dimensionality
-Put the mind on pause
-And more...

The Shamanic Journey is a modality that has been used consciously for thousands of years. It is an intentional prayer used for personal guidance, healing, spiritual connection and growth.

Our souls are multi-dimensional - as we allow them to travel and enter into a different dimension, we are able to have clarity and vision that is often difficult to attain when fully embodied. There is no need for additional substances to attain this powerful skill, in fact it is more empowering to know you are capable by setting intention and feeling safe to travel.

We will then explore and work with our Power Animals through Breathwork which is a transformative process that allows individuals to journey and experience different realms of consciousness; accessing Greater Love, Wisdom and Healing.
-----------------
Cost is $50. Spaces are limited so register soon.
Pay via Eventbrite or Venmo @ Eva-Nelson-2.
--------
Bring to Event: Water, sack lunch, a pillow, blanket, and an eye mask or something to put over your eyes.

Sound Journey and Ceremony
May
13
7:00 PM19:00

Sound Journey and Ceremony

Join us for an alchemical blend of instruments, songs, shamanic & energetic healing! Enjoy a truly unique, heart-opening experience with the vibrational harmonics of Crystal & Tibetan singing bowls, didgeridoos, gongs, handpans, native flutes, tuning forks, drums & sacred songs. Allow yourself to be rejuvenated, invigorated & inspired by the frequency of Love! Alyssa and Prasad are dedicated to bringing healing, love, compassion and well-being into the world. Their deepest prayer is to help people awaken, to remember their power and intrinsic ability to heal themselves. They have happily been working in collaboration for over 5 years.

What’s a Sound Journey? A Sound Journey is similar to a guided meditation. Participants often lay down & are not required “to do” anything; simply relax & receive the music. It provides an excellent therapy for stress related issues, depression, fatigue, anger & hostility, feelings of fear, separation and loneliness, along with many other conditions related to the lack of balance & harmony in the body. The resonating sounds of the sacred instruments induce theta brain waves which promote a spontaneous state of meditation and relaxation. Listeners often experience a sense of connectedness and peace as the sacred sound of the gong offers listeners access to parts of the mind that are usually closed, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness and higher consciousness. Sound Healing is often used to rebalance, tone and bring harmony to the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.


About Alyssa: Alyssa has been studying various forms of the healing arts for over 13 years, including crystal and sound healing, Reiki, shamanic techniques and Nature-based ceremony. She has been walking the medicine path with deep reverence, honor and curiosity, creating a rooted and powerful ancient spirit connection, and has worked with many incredible teachers. She was Reiki level 1 & 2 certified at 21 years old, and Crystal Healing certified in 2008. She is passionate about being of service to this beautiful Planet and in assisting others in aligning with love and finding inspiration to live their highest truth. She brings her gifts to this world as an intuitive healer and joy-bringer through song, dance, prayer, creating beauty and care-taking the Earth and waters.

About Prasad: Prasad is a talented multi-instrumentalist & student of sound healing. He is passionate about sharing music with the world, and his kind and nurturing heart and spirit shine brightly through his intricate sound creations. He was exposed to many forms of spirituality and energy healing at a very young age, but found his calling exploring the healing aspects of music 7yrs ago when he experienced a profound transformation through music and South American shamanism. He has acquired the most diverse collection of sound healing tools in Colorado on his journey, including gongs, crystal and Tibetan bowls, handpans, didgeridoos tuning forks & much more. The instruments have been his greatest teacher & he aspires to "get out of their way" when playing. In striving to learn as much as possible he has trained with Toby Christensen & studied sound healing extensively. Prasad leads The Boulder Drum Circle as well as playing various gigs & collaborating with his partner, Alyssa, as Sound Rise Alchemy.

Many of us who are called to the drum are seeking a deeper connection with community, nature, and ourselves – all of these are facilitated through African drumming! 

"Now is the time. We have access to one of the most powerful tools known to humans. This tool has been waiting for us for thousands of years. Cultures around the world have used it for remembering that we are connected to each other and the universe."  Martin Klabunde, Music is Medicine

Heidi Alina has been enriching the lives of her students for nearly 20 years through the art of African Drumming. She is distinguished as one of the top female African drummers in the country. Her background has gifted her with a unique ability to integrate Western classical knowledge with innovative teaching techniques and aspects of African culture. No matter what your level, you'll find Heidi's workshops both challenging and rewarding!

Please bring your own djembe or dundun drums. A limited number of drums are available to rent – please reserve in advance by calling 303-332-8816. 

Cost:  $25 with your own drum, $30 with drum rental

THAW: TREmor for Health And Wholeness

An Introductory TRE® (Tension & Trauma Release Exercises) Intensive Workshop


UNWIND

LET GO OF STRESS

RESET YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM

RESTORE BALANCE

REDISCOVER FLOW

EXPERIENCE INNER SAFETY AND PEACE


THAW is a day-long introductory workshop providing a theoretical and experiential overview of the TRE® (Tension and Trauma Release Exercise) process. This workshop will give participants a firm foundation of the TREmor process and participants will learn the tools to begin developing their own TREmoring practice.


TRE® (Tension & Trauma Release Exercises) is a revolutionary and innovative series of movements that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma symptoms. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.

TRE® is based on the fundamental idea, backed by recent research, that stress, tension and trauma is both psychological and physical. TRE®’s reflexive muscle vibrations generally feel pleasant and soothing. Some have even reported the TREmoring process as a deeply spiritual experience.


After doing TRE®, people report:

*Feelings of peace and well-being

*Less worry & anxiety

*Reduces symptoms of trauma

*More energy & endurance

*Improved relationships

*Less workplace stress

*Better sleep

*Less relationship conflict

*Reduced muscle & back pain

*Increased flexibility

*Greater emotional resiliency

*Decreases symptoms of vicarious trauma

*Healing of old injuries

*Lessened anxiety surrounding serious illness

*Relief from chronic medical conditions


Note: This workshop is not a substitute for therapy or counseling and though it is experiential and discussion-based, it is not designed for verbally processing the specific details of traumatic material.


Content covered in the workshop:

- Nervous System 101: Basic physiology of the stress response

- An understanding of the nervous system and the vagus nerve

- The 6 F’s: The body’s natural protection and safety responses

- Containment & Discharge: An examination of recovery responses

- Interoception and Exteroception: The role of regulation

- Discover and learn the 7 TRE exercises to awaken the restorative neurogenic tremor mechanism

- Engage in Self-Induced Therapeutic Tremors (SITTs) as a regulation and release tool

-Discussion and experiential activities for deepening, integration and settling of the TREmoring process in the body


***WHO***

This workshop is open to the general public, including wellness practitioners and mental health providers. It is appropriate for those new to TREmoring and those already engaging in the TRE process who desire a deeper dive. Please note, as a precautionary measure children, pregnant people, and those recovering from recent injury should not participate. If you are uncertain if you are welcome, contact Anya Kearns at trecolorado@gmail.com


Note: Number of participants is limited.


***PLEASE BRING***

A yoga mat, a blanket, water bottle, journal, pen and wear comfortable clothing you can move freely in.

The She-Wolf Shimmy
Mar

7:00 PM19:00

The She-Wolf Shimmy

The She-Wolf Shimmy

The She-Wolf Shimmy is a monthly dance refuge for the woman, fem and nonbinary people of our community. This is a wild space, where we are free to dance fiercely, erotically, tenderly, playfully, take a nap, cry, or snuggle. It's a watering hole where we come together to share the nourishment of life.

At 1:00pm, we start connecting to each other and dropping into our bodies. The opening exercises are different each time, but often feature verbal sharing and nurturing touch. Starting at 1:30pm, we free-dance through slow and fast songs, erotic and fierce songs, sad and sweet songs. Each playlist is designed to bring us through a journey. Anyone can dance topless. During the dance you are also invited to enjoy a relaxing lounge space, talk or cuddle with fellow she-wolves, go outside, read tarot cards, or make art. At the end of the dance, we have an additional 30 minutes to share, connect, and snack together. The She-Wolves often report that this is their favorite part.


WHO: This gender-intentional ecstatic dance welcomes people who identify as women, femme, nonbinary, genderfluid, etc. Trans women are heartily welcome. Children and minors accompanied by participants are also invited. The dance is NOT open to people who primarily identify as men or mostly masculine. We believe the benefits of this gathering will ripple through the whole community, so we ask our men-friends to bless us from afar. If you are uncertain if you're welcome, contact Lauren Pass Erickson via Facebook message or Amy Van Sweden at amy.hiraethholos@gmail.com.

PLEASE BRING: A water bottle, and food to share for after the dance.

COST: $5-25 sliding scale. We want this to be affordable to everyone.

I HEARD WOMEN CAN DANCE TOPLESS?
Yes, by popular request! Just not outside the dance studio.

KIDS:
We have had kids and sometimes babies at many of these dances. To keep the focus on the feminine alive, though, please no boys over the age of 5. Children and minors are invited to participate in the structure and exercises if they are old enough. We ask parents to communicate with their kids throughout the event, so that they are comfortable and respectful in the space.

YOUR FACILITATORS:

Lauren Pass Erickson is a dancer, artist, and teacher, currently pursuing her Masters in Somatic Counseling and Dance/Movement Therapy at Naropa University. She is also a certified facilitator of DANCEmandala, a free form movement mediation practice (more information at facebook.com/DANCEmandalaLauren). Lauren loves dancing, listening to wild or bizarre music, drawing, hiking, nesting, gardening, writing, reading Buddhist wisdom, rolling around on the floor, and sharing laughter. Her favorite part of the She-Wolf Shimmy is being able to immerse in an environment that is both spacious and intimate, without agenda or expectations, and full of whatever kind of nourishment is needed in the moment. She looks forward to fostering both silly playfulness and deep soulful dives in these gatherings.

Amy-la Lovely:
Hello beautiful beings, I’m A•LA Lovely (Amy Van Sweden) and I am honored to be co creating She Wolf Shimmy. This beautiful offering has gave me a place to be my sweet playful child self as well as embracing my primitive wild side. Dance is truly my medicine; it is where I die and become reborn again. Each movement in the dance I explore and reveal different parts of me as I dare to express openly and actively. I enjoy authentic movement, contact improv and trying new forms of expression. I especially love when dance evolves into cuddle puddles. When I am not dancing I’m co-creating with a non-profit called The Nowak Society, co-leading teen art therapy groups, attuning to sweet children, connecting with Earth Mother, admiring my beloved boa, diving deeper into shamanic and womb studies, conceiving empathic watercolor paintings, and cuddling.

Stress Relieving Sound Journey
Feb

2:00 PM14:00

Stress Relieving Sound Journey

Join us for a deeply relaxing, stress relieving two hour immersive into sound and movement where we will be indulging in all the richness and heat from a ceremonial dose of cacao and lucid dreaming herbs while we move from yoga play, to savasana into yoga nidra and journey together through sound and vibration.

Our sound journey will be led by quartz crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, gongs, flute, chimes, rattles with trance inducing drumming and gentle percussive sound scapes that will lead you on a journey of surrender and discovery. Shannon and Keshua have been leading these Sound Journeys together since 2017.

Where: Vali Soul Sanctuary, Boulder, CO
Pre-Pay Tickets: Sliding Scale $25-$40
Student Tickets $20 pay at the door with ID

We are so blessed to work with a Cacao that has a unique origin. This medicine is a 5,000 year old strain grown organically in Guatemala by Mayans. These are people of the land, and their connection to the Cacao is reflected in the powerful medicine that now carries us through these sound journeys.

There are yoga mats at the the sanctuary, though please bring your own yoga mats, blanket and pillow to be super comfy!
