Didgeridoo Chakra Clearing
Introduction to Chakras (Ayruveda) and Meridians (TCM)
Joseph Carringer has presented on the effects of didgeridoo sound for the purposes of clearing energetic and emotional stagnation in the energetic body; to medical/holistic professionals, undergraduate/graduate students as well as wellness and healthy life style seekers.
This lecture is designed to give the participant the opportunity to effectively clear out energetic/emotional stagnation from each of the seven major energy centers of the body. It offers a brief overview of the chakras and the relationship between the subtle energy system and the physical body, followed by 50+ minute journey (7-8 minutes in the key of each Chakra) and time for question and answers.
Joseph has a collection of concert class didgeridoos tuned to the key of each major chakra. This collection enables him to provide a meditative journey to reconnect the mind/body and allow you to journey within each Chakra.
Participants are guided to focus awareness on each of the chakra regions as they come into the corresponding mediation to heighten their awareness of the energy center and promote clearing while connecting with the energetic body.
Approximately 120 minuets including an overview of the Charkra and Meridian system and 50+ minute journey (7-8 minutes with each Chakra note) followed by questions and answer time.
Embracing the Power of the “Mind/Body” Connection
This workshop covers the power and importance of the mind/body connection. Participants will then take a look at the effects of the Western lifestyle and how it impairs the mind/body connection from occurring effectively or in some cases at all. Discover the impact of stored negative emotion and energetic stagnation and how various blockages in different regions of the energetic and physical bodies can lead to specific illnesses.
History of Mind Body Medicine
Examples of "mind/will power" to heal the body
The conclusion of the workshop will cover the importance of regular meditative practices and how to use meditation as a manifestation tool for stagnation release and the maintenance of optimal health by participating in a 45-50 minute didgeridoo journey.
Approximately 90 minuets including lecture, 45 minute meditation and question/answer time and share experiences.
Re-manifesting Your Reality with Quantum Creation Strategies
"Energy can be neither created nor destroyed" is a basic principal of both quantum and modern physics and is the foundation of our innate inner power.
This workshop gives the participant the chance to redefine their role in co-creating their reality. Cross culturally much of humanity has been lead to believe that we are creatures of "fate" or "predestined" paths.
These ideas are challenged and explored during this program, followed by a meditation designed to support individual projections of quantum manifestation.
The significance of “Reality”
Social/cultural roadblocks to co-creation
The didgeridoo meditations consist of a group manifestation and personal manifestation followed by group sharing and questions and answer time.
Approximately 90 minuets including lecture, 45 minute meditation and question/answer time.
Journey with the Chakana (Inca Cross)
In late November of 2005 Joseph and his wife Nicole traveled to Peru to participate in a shamanic retreat that included visiting a vast collection of Peruvian sacred sites as well as having the privilege to work with and learn from a diverse group of traditional Peruvian shaman, priests and healers. Many of the foundational lessons Joseph teaches on self healing and personal growth were learned and experienced first hand during this journey through Peru.
The “Journey with the Chakana (Inca Cross)” workshop invites the individual participant the opportunity to experience and explore their consciousness through the intention of meditating with the three foundational steps of Peruvian shamanism. Joseph will share some of the key personal growth and healing lessons he learned during his journey through Peru in 2005 and their direct relationship to the steps of the Inca Cross.
Three foundational steps of the Chakana (Inca Cross):
Uqhu Pacha/The Snake: Representing the Lower World/Inner Realms/Other World, death
Kay Pacha/The Puma: Representing the Middle World/Present World, this life and elemental spirit
Hanan Pacha/ The Condor: Representing the Upper World, the spirits of the sun and planets
Approximately 75 minutes including lecture, 45 minute meditation and question/answer time.
