Lancaster’s “Energy Healing Sound Bath” workshop.8/16-8/18/2023

The goal of “healing” is not only to release and cleanse the energy blockages, the ultimate goal of healing is to achieve the frequency of “love”.

About 70% of the human body is water. We hear sounds with our ears, in addition the water in our body (i.e. blood, body fluids) resonate deeply with the vibrations of sounds. Our biological functions such as the circadian rhythms, brain waves, heart beats, breathing, digestion, are also affected by the vacations and vibrations of sounds.

Each sound has its own speed, intensity, frequency, pitch, and wavelength. Sometimes individuals are not consciously aware of sounds, because the whole body responds to sounds and not just our ears. The human body is made up of electronic vibrations.

Workshop begins with connecting to nature, using sound and mantra chanting to cleanse the mind and body. This has nothing to do with religion, sounds come from nature as do humans.

Shamanic drums are used next to help induce a state of relaxation and Theta brain waves. When the whole body is in sync with the beat of the drums, we are able to let go of the conscious mind and connect with our true nature or our heart.

Teacher will lead a special Mother Earth chakra cleansing meditation, together with instruments of various vibrations and sounds. This practice ends with a crystal bowl with ultra high level 60000Hz to stimulate our brain to increase immunity, decrease stress hormones, and activate self healing abilities.

Workshop Format

  • Mantra chanting to connect with source
  • Shamanic drums to transform frequencies
  • 7 chakra cleansing meditation
  • Sound bath energy healing
  • Group Sharing

Blog-Meditation for inner peace

Meditation for inner peace

Author – Lydia Chang, Flow Retreat Director

At the end of every Flow Retreat, I often find guests feeling hesitant to leave. Many of them have experienced profound sense of relaxation, and they are not sure how to continue feeling peaceful once they return back home. 

Fortunately, there’s a powerful tool to help sustain or create the transformative effect of a retreat at-home. This powerful tool is meditation.

What is Meditation?

 “Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.” – Alan Watts 

Imagine there’s a glass of water, inside the water is muddy as it’s mixed with dirt and sand.

This water represents our mind, and the dirt and sand represents our thoughts, feelings, and mental clutters.

All day long, we are constantly moving, doing, and thinking. This is similar to us stirring the water of our mind, the more the water is stirred the more muddy the water becomes.

Now what happens when you leave the water alone? After awhile, dirt and sand slowly sinks to the bottom…..and the water becomes clear again.

Just like water, within each one of us lies the capacity for inner peace and calm. 

But we often get consumed by our busy lives, leaving us feeling stressed out, tired, and confused.

When we practice meditation, we are creating an opportunity for true rest, we are allowing mental clutters to subside, and from there we can access your inner tranquility whenever needed.

Benefits of Meditation

Meditation offers numerous benefits that contribute to our overall well-being and help us maintain inner peace.

Physically, science have proven that meditation practice lead to structural changes in the brain in as little as 8 weeks of regular practice. Areas associated with attention, emotional regulation, and self-awareness showed improved cognitive function and emotional stability, allowing us to better navigate stressful situations and maintain a sense of inner calm.

Emotionally, meditation cultivates self-awareness and emotional resilience, enabling us to observe thoughts and emotions without judgment. This non-reactive state promotes a peaceful mindset and harmonious and more loving relationships with ourselves and others. 

Spiritually, meditation enhanced intuition and wisdom: By quieting the mind and accessing deeper levels of consciousness, you can tap into profound insights, creativity and guidance.

How to Meditation?

  • Step 1 : Relax the body

Find a comfortable position to sit, and relax your body. You can try to relax your body starting from the top of the head, part by part, down to the feet. Scanning the body from top to bottom, wherever your attention goes, relax that part of the body.

  • Step 2: Focus on Breathing

Bring your attention to your breathing. Naturally breathe in and out, there’s no need to change your breathing. Focus on the breath movement, enjoy the sensation of the breath. Whenever thoughts and feelings show up and you’re distracted, know that it is normal, gently bring your attention back to the breathing over and over again. The more you practice being aware of the breathe, the stronger your ability for focus and awareness.

  • Step 3: Be in Stillness

Continue to focus on breathing and allow the body to settle into stillness. Resist the temptation to move or scratch your body. As the mind and the body is intricately connected, the more the body can be still, the more the mind can be still. Practice for at least 20 minutes.

We love to hear from you! Try meditation today and let us know how your practice goes!

Mother’s Day Retreat: Release and Heal with Mom 5/12-5/14/2023

News

【Mother’s Day Retreat: Release and Heal with Mom】5/12-5/14

There’s a saying that “A child who is loved by their mother is a treasure.” On the journey of growth, mothers have put in a tremendous amount of effort, meeting our needs and juggling busy lives, enabling us to grow up smoothly and become independent. In this long journey of playing the role of a mother, perhaps she often neglects her own needs and doesn’t know how to unload her worries and concerns in a timely manner. Over the years, wrinkles gradually appear on her face. Her body becomes stiff, and her mind becomes unbalanced.

If you want to improve your relationship with your mother, cultivate understanding, and, more importantly, help her learn how to take care of her physical and mental health, this journey is for you. Through this 3-days weekend trip, we will lead you to unload your busyness, invite you to enter a world of mindfulness and tranquility, fully feel, relax, explore the power of mindfulness, and find a better balance in life.

Moving from the U.S. to Taiwan, TJ and his wife non-stop thinking about ways to live in harmony with nature. They utilize the experience of staying in the state and start to grow their organic agricultural products. By joining the farm activities, travelers will definitely feel how much the couple love the land they live in.

Horse Healing

Animals are always willing to show their true self to us. That’s also why we often feel peace and joy when interacting with animals. During horse healing, we learn how to interact with horses properly. By reading into their actions and state of being, we not only know more about the animals but also become more open with our state of being.

Meditate with river

We listen to the sound of insects, the sound of water, and the sound of your heart at the riverside. Taking one step closer to nature is one step closer to yourself.
