 Equinox Celebration
Friday September 21st 6pm
Sachin Hazen& Bradford Tilden
We will celebrate the Autumnal Equinox using music, meditation, essential oils, ritual, thesonic alchemy of crystal bowls, and the extraordinary angelic and shamanic vocals channeled through Sound Healing Master, Bradford Tilden. The evening will culminate with a performance and group toning led by Bradford to embody the unified force of collective sound. Our thoughts and beliefs create our reality, our experience of life. This is a god-like quality. Our task is to do this consciously, as opposed to unconsciously. We must create a life we want, not one based on unconscious beliefs and fears. We support each other to grow, develop, and become as we were designed to be: conscious, aware, kind, wise, intelligent, prosperous, joyful, blissful, beautiful, excellent, fearless, strong, powerful, and insightful.  We will raise our vibration, releasing limiting beliefs, manifesting what we want.  “I want you to know how special and important your spirit circle was for me…  I gained a lot and loved it…   your teachings did impress me…” ~KS
“Thank you for leading the spirit circle last night, I really loved it and felt amazing when I left.” ~EA
The event is part of the Living as Gods Spirit Circle series led by holistic psychotherapist and intuitive Sachin Hazen.
