Poetry of the Soul: Using Creative Writing & the Moon for Emotional Healing

While most of us know our basic sign in astrology (the sun sign), many of us do not realize that there is more to our personality and astrological make-up than just one sign. The astrological moon sign governs our emotions–how we react and process emotions, in addition to how we feel most creatively satisfied and a sense of inner fulfillment. Creative writing pulls emotions to the surface–we connect more readily to themes that ring true to us on an emotional, soul level and express this connection through written word. This is why writing is an excellent tool for shedding light on emotional tendencies ready to be released, and for cultivating new emotional patterns that set us up for success.

In this workshop, we will spend the first part of the session learning about the moon sign. What is your moon sign and what does that mean for your emotions? What are some detrimental and beneficial expressions of the moon sign in relation to your emotions? We will then spend some time writing with prompts to explore and bring about more emotional awareness. Everyone will have the opportunity to share what was written and/or learned from the experience. We will end with intention setting and a sense of renewed emotional clarity.

Katy Ibur is an astrologer, dream coach and metaphysical advisor. She is passionate about using astrology and dream work to enhance Self understanding and Self healing (especially the emotions). She is originally from St. Louis and just moved to the Carrboro area this past summer! In St. Louis, she was involved for 7 years in the Gifted Writer’s Project, where she blossomed her passion for creative writing. Website: kispiritbalance.com

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.

Many of us are being called to remember more about who we really are, and are wanting to share our unique gifts and talents with the world. We are all needed !

Come enjoy an experiential evening of Intuitive Life Coaching and hands on healing. 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. You will leave with more clarity and knowledge about your true Soul Essence and how you might share your gifts with the world.
