FRIDAY JUNE 28:

• 7 PM – 8 PM – Music With Crystal Journey and David Hickey

davidhickey3

Based in Mount Hope, Ontario, Crystal Journey and David Hickey performs with Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls, 10-15 of them. Each produces a pure note or tone, the purest there is. They are accompanied by a Vibraphone, Santoor and 8-18 Paiste Planet, Symphonic and Sound Creation Gongs. Every gong features a strong fundamental note tuned to represent a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Sun, the Earth, the Moon and the other planets. It’s like having a full orchestra.

Crystal Journey has been touring Canada and the US coast to coast for the past ten years and has performed over 1000 shows. Crystal Journey has also released 9 CDs to date. I have played the Bowls and Gongs accompanied by various musicians as well as with the Winnipeg Chamber Orchestra in June of 2006.

As 2013 unfolds, I am looking forward to taking my music to ever increasing numbers, creating conscious awareness across Canada and the Globe with a message of unity and peace.

The intent of the performance is to create soothing, meditative and healing music. Each one of my performances is completely improvised, and unique. The music attracts a full range of listeners. My concerts are in two sets, each lasting about an hour in length.

Concert Times:

Friday June 28: 7 – 8 PM

Saturday June 29: 7 – 8 PM

Price for concert: $25 / 2 for $40

• 9 AM – 10:30 AM – Sacred Circle Dancing with Sharon Harrison

sharonharrison

Sacred Circle Dancing feeds Sharon’s soul whether she is dancing alone or in a circle of 50; at her campsite or a Mexican monastery; celebrating Spring Equinox or creating peace.

Sacred Circle Dance is inclusive…we welcome adults of all beliefs, dancing abilities, and energies!!!

Music from around the world will invite us to enjoy a variety of dances ….old & new; meditative & energetic; traditional & modern; alone & joined in our circle.

You do not need a partner or any experience. I will teach each dance before we dance it …there are no mistakes, only ‘creative variations’ which are usually accompanied by laughter.

The dances are not serious but can be sacred if that is your intent. Don‘t be afraid of the word ‘dance’…some steps are as simple as walking. We dance for body & soul, healing of ourselves, others, and the planet, and for fun!

The Teacher

As a facilitator of the Haliburton dance circle, she brings passion, joy, and good teaching skills. Sharon has lived in the Haliburton Highlands since the 1970’s; when she’s not dancing, you may find her pursuing her one of her  other passions…canoeing, gardening, or singing.

 

• 10:30 AM – 12 Noon – Chakra Balancing With Singing Bowls and Eileen Eng

One of the EASIEST and most FUN ways to align your physical and energetic bodies is through sound. We will use quartz crystal singing bowls and our voices through toning to energize, activate and balance our chakras and energetic bodies.

HaHa

Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea – simple and profound. It is sweeping the world and is a complete well-being workout.

Laughter Yoga combines simple laughter exercises and gentle yoga breathing. It’s FUN and promotes relaxation, health and happiness. In Laughter Yoga, we laugh for NO reason, except that we love to laugh. “Laughter is the best medicine.”

LY strengthens the immune system, is a powerful cardio workout, increases blood circulation and releases tension.

It is a powerful antidote for depression. It reduces blood pressure and symptoms of allergies, asthma and arthritis. It helps in chronic illnesses like cancer.

• 2:30 PM – 4 PM – Drumming – A Sonic Journey with John Proctor

johnproctor

We gather in a circle. Different ages, cultures, backgrounds and experience. The call of the drum has brought us together. Someone starts a simple beat, others join in, and then we all join in. We close our eyes, listen to each other, and listen to ourselves. We all know each other without saying a word, linked together through percussion music.

Rhythm circles are the perfect environment to explore ideas for sounding together, creating exciting grooves and having fun!

In this workshop, we will play drums and percussion instruments from around the world and create Perfect Music together. As Max Hartstein puts it, “No one can play imperfect music because all the wrong notes have already been played”. It’s an attitude towards making music that permits anything.

The Teacher

Based in Haliburton at Earth Tones Studio.  Drum builder & teacher John Proctor provides a fun for all, hands on, interactive experience with his wide assortment of hand-crafted, unique drums.

At Earth Tones Studio, John builds and teaches workshops on a variety of drums including Djembe, Taiko, Ashiko and Native American Frame drums as well as percussion instruments crafted from Hard Shelled Gourds.

John is always creating new and different drums.  His current passion is using recycled materials. He also facilitates drumming circles and soundscapes for young and old who respond to the call and the dance of the drum beat. John is an Artist Educator and certified Roots of Rhythm teacher (www.rootsofrhythm.net)

• 5:30 PM – 7 PM – How To Program Water – A Kinesiology Demonstration with Dev Khalsa


dev-kauai

Recent experiments by French immunologist Dr Jacques Benveniste and more recently, at the Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart in Germany, have shown that water has a capacity for memory.

Using applied kinesiology Dev will easily demonstrate that not only does water have a memory but it can also be programmed to cause changes in the human body.

Please bring a bottle of water to this class.

The Teacher

Dev Khalsa is a visionary scientist, yogi and master kinesiologist. He is a founder and practitioner at Spectrum Healing Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto and Spectrum Healing Arts Centre in Minden. He has been experimenting with and developing a form of kinesiology he calls Sacred Touch for the past 20 years.
