Join us for the coming together of CIRCLE OF LIGHT-- a special monthly gathering and benefit to nourish, honor and offer of the infinite incandescence of our hearts in an ever-widening circle of compassion and love.
This candle lit, intention drenched session will feature breathwork, soothing movement, guided meditation and sweet deep relaxation. Infused with the healing power of chandra namaskar (lunar salutations), mantra, poetry and the wisdom of sages from various traditions, these inspired and inspiring sessions will root you deeply and relax you completely. A tonic for the nervous system, balm for the heart and an opportunity to come together in community for something greater than yourself, each CIRCLE OF LIGHT will be offered the Friday nearest the full moon and is open to all.
50% of the proceeds will be dedicated to supporting the efforts of a selected non profit organization serving the greater good- primarily with a local focus. Each month, we will highlight the work of the group as well as their current needs and volunteer opportunities in advance of the session.
This months circle will benefit the Palisades Emergency Residence Corporation (PERC) is a soup kitchen, shelter and food pantry in Union City serving 250 meals per day to those in need and sheltering more than 120 homeless individuals a night.
