Sacred Breath, our connection to all life...The first step on the flute journey
Friday, Sept 26, 2008, 12:30-2:30
In our hurried lives, we often forget to do the one thing that can have the greatest benefit to our physical, emotional and spiritual health: Breathing........
Breathing with Intention helps you to relax and reduces stress, improves your skin tone and helps you sleep better. Some studies have even shown that improved breathing helps in losing weight!
By playing the flute, we breath through our instrument bringing healing to the world, and in turn, health and healing to ourselves. Join us as we begin this Sacred Journey.....

Tapping in to our own intuitive knowing, stepping out of our ego, trusting and allowing our soul to be played, we can call forth the healing power of the universe and offer it to the world....

I say, “Not at all!!” Explore the mystery of simple beats, tempo, meter, and what the heck IS a metronome? Bring a drum, any drum!
