Enjoy relaxing, stress-reducing sensory experiences Oct. 19-21, 2018 during the Profound Sound Festival/Retreat at Saint Anne’s Chapel in Tarboro.

You will enjoy the charismatic Pranavam Das (Lipbone Redding) as he brings his musical talents to the creation of “Sonic Prana.” In the physical body, prana is the vital breath that sustains life and manifests as thought, bodily function, and physical action. In the cosmos, prana is the sum total of all primal energy that manifests as motion, gravitation, magnetism, etc. Redding, a North Carolina native, is an accomplished musician, recording artist and entertainer. He tours the country blessing audiences with vocal and musical skills.

Festival participants will also enjoy the bucolic setting of Saint Anne’s Chapel, nestled away in a quiet grove, far from the distractions of our daily lives. Music will also be provided by the stars of Saint Anne’s sacred music: John Westmoreland, Gabriel Pelli, Will Ridenour, Raven Wolf, Daran Wallman, Greg Whitt and more. There will be sound baths, drum circles, kirtan, Native American flute, sonic prana, singing bowls, didgeridoos, chanting, breathwork, tuning forks, ecstatic dance and more cowbell!

There will also be energy healers of many different modalities available for one on one sessions, artist of esoteric art, vendors of alternative wares and workshops on many areas of healing, sound and sustainability. We will be offering Yoga, Tai Chi, Poi, juggling and a ongoing meditation space to help quiet the mind.

While at the event you can bathe in the woods while walking the nature trail or the labyrinth. Overnight tent camping is available and a bonfire on Friday and Saturday night. Food trucks with emphasis on vegetarian and vegan food.

Built in 1920 as an Episcopal mission church, Saint Anne’s today serves as a beacon of community and connection. No longer host to weekly services, the Chapel is available for rental throughout the year. The Chapel has been the venue of choice for countless weddings, parties, reunions, and retreats.

Nestled in Tarboro, North Carolina, Saint Anne’s is an hour east of Raleigh and 35 minutes north of Greenville. Situated half-way between the beach and the Triangle, Saint Anne’s is the perfect location for your special event!

The Sojo News: Past-Life Regression, Sustainble Palo Santo Products

Hello Sojourners!

Do you love the scent of Palo Santo Wood? We are pleased to carry a new source of sustainably harvested products from Third Eye Wood! You can find them on the new center wooden display in the second room of the shop.

Third Eye Wood – Palo Santo

This sacred tree is indigenous to select parts of South America. Similar to it’s botanical cousins, frankincense and myrrh, it is rich in brain-oxygenating terpenes such as a-terpinol and limonene. Translated from Spanish, Palo Santo means ‘sacred wood’ and its many uses can be traced back to the time of the ancient Incan Empire. It has long been revered by Shamans for its physical and metaphysical properties, such as:

  • Offers an uplifting aroma
  • Clears offensive odors
  • Repels unwanted insects and pests
  • Clears ‘mala energia,’ (bad energy)
  • Facilitates meditation
  • Raises vibration and spiritual awareness.

 

We now carry their Sticks, room sprays, soaps, and pyramid incense.

EdwardZulaNC@gmail.com

Short Bio: Now based in North Carolina, Edward Zula has been providing private readings, clarity, and comfort to his Los Angeles clients for more than thirty years. He uses psychometry (reading energy from objects and photos), clairsentience, and spirit communication to help clients with questions about relationships, career, important life decisions, and help resolve grief and loss. In his readings he uses cards, a pendulum, meditation, and any sentimental or meaningful objects the client wishes to share. He explains that he does not “see” spirits standing over anyone’s shoulder as a traditional medium might, but rather feels their presence, often hears them, and gets a sense of their physical appearance with his eyes closed.

Free Herbalism Class at The Sojourner!

Free Herbalism Class!

Intro to Herbalism – Teas – Infusions

Saturday, June 16 at 12 PM – 1 PM
Open to the Public

Hosted by: The Sojourner Whole Earth Provisions
414 Evans St, Greenville, North Carolina 27858

252-758-7656 (SOJO)

Free Herbalism class at The Sojourner with Courtney Varnadoe

Join local herbalist Courtney Varnadoe for a FREE community herbalism class! Reclaim the people’s knowledge and practice of gentle healing with the earth.

During this talk I will be discussing basic at-home herbalism, and demonstrating the preparation of teas, infusions, and decoctions. Be prepared to take notes; I may have instructional take-home booklets for sale (to cover the cost of printing) after class, but it’s not a guarantee!

A message from Courtney:
I spend a lot of time thinking about purpose, values, career, and how I’m supposed to align all of those major things into one life. I’ve felt for a long time that humanity needs a revolution that inspires us to connect with the world around us, and protect it from people who would do it harm.

Getting to know plants, how we can use them to help us, and how we can help them is, to me, an integral part of that process. I’ve been holding classes on how to use herbs for many years now, but recently I’ve come to a realization: If I’m truly going to spread this message around, and possibly help people take control of their health and lives within their means (in a healthcare and cultural system that makes it unreasonably expensive to live a healthy life) I’m going to have to make it accessible to absolutely everyone.

So here we are. Starting now, I’m teaching these classes for free to anyone who shows up. No, I’m not a doctor, physician, or healthcare provider of any sort (And I have no interest in becoming one) but I do seek to remind people that there is an entire spectrum of healing. And partnership with the Earth and it’s bounty is a part of that.

~Courtney
