Deeper Realms: Live Sound Therapy with Yin Yoga | Fremantle
"Elevate through Vibration and Embodiment"
Friday November 10th
Victoria Hall, 179 High St, Fremantle
6pm - 8pm
Please BYO Yoga Mat and blanket - We have a small amount if you forget.
The Australian Psychedelic Society in association with Steven Alyian and Yogini Priya present an exploration of meditative and somatic practices in a group ceremonial setting in downtown Fremantle.
Join us for an immersive night of sound healing combined with accessible yin yoga in the beautifully restored Victoria Hall. No experience in Yoga or psychedelics is necessary as we will be gently guided into an exploration of deeper states of consciousness through the careful application of listening and movement. We will be creating a safe and non-judgmental space for anyone who wants to explore the atmosphere of sitting in an intentional group therapy environment. This will be an opportunity to connect with like-minded people and the local community, unwinding into a relaxed state of mind at the end of the working week.
This event offers participants a chance for deep integration of - or - preparation for a psychedelic therapy experience. We acknowledge that recreational use of psychedelics continues despite a long history of criminalisation. We do not encourage or condone recreational use but we do provide harm minimisation support and psycho-education to those who make their own choice to do this. This event will guide participants into a shared group meditation, allowing for the development of holistic techniques of movement and breathing which can prepare for the conscious and safe use of psychedelics. Steven and Priya have a wealth of experience hosting integration circles, running group mediations and retreats and are knowledgeable, intelligent and passionate about this thriving culture of psychedelics that we are collectively emerging into.
