Sound, Breath and Meditation Workshop
With Dante Baker, 200 Hour RYT
Experience sounds from the Tibetan and modern crystal bowl during the breathing exercises and meditation to re-harmonize the entire body. Allow the sound vibrations to soothe the mind, clear any blockages within the body and guide you into the present moment.
All levels of practitioners are welcome to deepen their understanding, heighten their awareness and strengthen application of meditation and breathing exercises while using Tibetan Singing and Modern Singing Bowls. Discover how controlled breathing not only keeps the mind and body functioning optimally, but it will also lower blood pressure, promote a calm and relaxing mind-set and help students de-stress.
Different Meditation techniques can relax the body while keeping the mind singularly focused. When this is done regularly, a deep sense of inner peace, mental clarity and tranquility is cultivated with the practitioner.
Throughout history many ancient civilizations and cultures have used crystals and stones for a numerous purposes such as healing, meditating, activating and strengthening psychic abilities. Within the last century, modern society has discovered, and continues to discover, the powerful and healing effects the singing bowls can produce with the backing of science. The quality of the materials and the structure of these bowls are highly important as these two foundations are what produce the harmonic sounds; while Tibetan bowls are made of brass and copper, crystal bowls are formed from mostly pure crushed quartz and heated in high boiling temperature in a centrifugal shape. The sounds that are created when the bowls are struck with a mallet, release a powerful and potent sound vibration, with the larger bowls creating a deeper and longer reverberation due to the size and amount of crystal used. Each bowl is tested with digital technology to identify its unique sound, with each sound corresponding to a particular note, similar to notes of a piano.
Dante Baker has been a native to the Washington DC area his entire life, growing up in Reston, VA. Since his childhood years, Dante has always had a fascination with the human anatomy and all of its abilities to heal, move, and process. This interest led Dante to studying and receiving certifications through AFAA and NASM in 2007. As he pursued personal training he worked with wide a range of clients such as over-weight clients, young athletes and elderly adults. As he gained more experience and confidence in his teaching he extended his expertise to larger classes such as boot camp, athletic conditioning, kids physical education, kickboxing and body pump.
Dante personally trains and sees private clients for massage, physical exercise and Reiki, teaches meditation, yoga, qi gong classes, performs crystal and Tibetan Sound Concerts. His personal philosophy is that the body has an innate wisdom within itself and the tools and services he provides, allows the body to perform the healing that it knows how to do.
In this time of planetary change, many of us are going through our own time of change and transformation . We are letting go of places we live, careers, relationships, letting go of habitual patterns and ingrained beliefs that no longer serve us.But sometimes we feel unclear and fearful about moving forward. We’re not sure of what it is we want, what to envision and how best to bring it forth into this physical reality. We simply know we want more. Join me for an experiential evening of hands-on Intuitive Life Coaching and Energy Healing work.
If the group is small, I will provide short individual sessions for each person. If the group is large, I will work with as many people as I’m able. Fulfilling external change always involves making internal shifts and spring is an opportune time for doing this. Our time together will help you gain clarity about where you are now, where you would like to go, and action steps you might take to create more of what you desire.

Please bring your questions as Stephanie responds to your intentions for the evening.
In 2006, Stephanie had a near death experience which lead to a reawakening of her psychic abilities. In 2007, Stephanie was teaching non-verbal autistic children.
