Listening Workshop: You Talk and the Circle Listens

         Noon-1pm, By: IllumIKnation Station Staff

In the self-obsessed digital age of blogs and selfies, the technology of communication has never been stronger; however, such ease of dispersing information means that few of us are prepared to so readily receive it – we rarely take the time to stop and listen to one another.  Learn through practice what it means to listen attentively without judgement, preconceptions or recording.  Salem is an experienced summer camp counsellor as well as a former teaching assistant for relevant courses at the university level.

History of Expanded Consciousness in the West

         2:00-3:00pm, By: Professor Chrispy with IllumIKnation Station

Expanding your consciousness is opening the gateway to obtaining a new perspective on your reality.  It is the process of altering our minds for the better, of evolving ourselves through conscious effort and divine inspiration.  Westerners today rarely think about expanded consciousness.  Though it has gained some traction with the influx of Eastern thought during the 1960s and 1970s, most still consider expanding their consciousness to be unimportant.  However this is not true!  For centuries westerners have altered their minds through fasting, mind-altering chemicals, isolation in nature, meditation, and more.  Come learn about how westerns have historically attempted to expand their consciousness, and why.

 

Tarot Reading Workshop

         3:00-4:00pm, By: Conor Fairbanks with IllumIKnation Station

Tarot, as well as being a deck of cards, is a complex form of divination. Using 78 cards, the tarot reader decodes the message presented; be it the future, the past, or life choices. There are many ways to interpret Tarot cards, and many interconnections and related pieces of symbology that are up for interpretation. As well as this, there are many spreads (ways to lay the cards), which can deal with all sorts of different situations. Tarot is both an eclectic and deep system of divination.  Join Coner for a general discussion of Tarot including how to do simple readings.

 

Biological Kundalini: Reality Explained

         4:00-5:00pm, By: Naomi J. Hennes with IllumIKnation Station

Kundalini Yoga

         8:30-9:30am, By: Patrick Colasanti of Ombase

Please bring water to drink and a mat or blanket if you have one.  Some community mats will be provided.

 

5 Element Chakra Yoga

         10:00-11:00am, By: Lyndsey Stropkey of Ombase

Learn how yogic practices can balance the 5 elements of earth, water, fire, air, and ether, and how those elements correlate with the first five centers of your chakra system.  There are seven major energy centers that run along the spine and get out of balance in the fray of everyday life.   Bring your elements, and your energy centers (chakras) into balance through breathing, mudras, mantra, postures, visualization, and meditation! This practice is open to all, and will be a lovely addendum to the chakra discussion and meditation on Friday!  Hand-outs may be provided for take- home study.
