…Summer sadly comes to a close and the transition to Autumn begins.
The womb of the Goddess (Mother Earth) pours forth and she gives birth to the bounty of nature.
She also gives birth to the dark sun god. He that will guide us through the long dark winter months.
The Father sun has poured his energy into the land and is now fading, his light now noticeably waning with each passing day.
Lammas is a time for giving thanks.
The colour associated with Lammas is Orange 🟠 the most joyful colour on the Wheel, that is balanced by the sombre dark night of Indigo.
Orange brings us the joy of the last warm rays of summer sunlight, as the very first of the leaves begin to turn to orange.
We will begin our journey on arrival, with a glass of Orchard Fruit Punch as you find a space and settle in.
First a little fun with ‘Affirmations & Aromas’. Choose a card from the *Aromatic Affirmations deck, read your affirmation, and receive a sample of the corresponding essential oil to be kept close, if desired, throughout the session.
Our short Seasonal Contemplation leads us to prepare to be taken on a 30 minute Thunder Drum Dreaming Journey.
Outdoors on the deck or indoors if adverse weather.
We will then take a short break.
Now enter the Sound Sanctuary for a Soul Soothing 90 minute Sound Relaxation.
On returning, we move into the dining area for 3 courses of home cooked Harvest Fare. Beginning with Harvest Parcels, followed by Kumara Soup with Lemongrass & Coconut, served with Orange Coriander Bread (GF available if booked). Then Carrot Cake with Orangy Cream Cheese Topping served with cream, or for the DF/GF/V guests - Orange Almond Rice Pudding with Peach Slices served with Coconut Cream. Finish with a hot or cold Beverage from our Mini Cafe Menu.


*Aromatic Affirmations cards are created by Kimberley Vita Rose. Local Women’s Health Practitioner and creator of wonderful health products

SOUND RELAXATION

The epicentre of what we do here at Valinor.

Pure Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls. Cosmic Gongs. Gemstone & Quartz Singing Bowls. Timeless Tibetan Singing Bowls. The Crystal Lyre, Crystal Pyramids. The Mighty Thunder Drum. The Ocean Drum. Enormous Tuned Chimes. Rain Sticks. Rattles. Bells. Thunder Tube and more...

Enter the portal. Align with the heartbeat of the earth. Travel across the plains, through the forest, over the mountains to the ocean. Dive deep beneath the waves, swim with the whales, listen to their mystical voices. Fly high into the sky and out into the magical universe. Experience the birth of stars, feel the very sounds of creation itself. Tinkling fairy chimes & bells, return you to the centre of your own heart.

This is an experience you will not forget and you will wish it never had to end...

No amplification. No electronics. Just the pure tones of the amazing instruments.

Sound bathing helps to heal your body by reducing stress & anxiety, impacts the human nervous system and decreases blood pressure, helps tune out your thoughts to make beneficial meditation easier, assists connection to inner self to access healing & insight, makes you more relaxed, balanced & focussed.

 



THUNDER DRUM DREAMING

Thunder Drum Pow Wow Journey is generally during the warmer months...a celebration of the Earth...we gather around the Mighty Thunder Drum on the outside deck and grass. You are encouraged to join in, in some way, either bring your own drum, join in on the thunder drum, or use one of the drums, rattles or other instruments that are provided. Otherwise, if you'd prefer, just sit & soak up the beats.

Sit or lie down and give yourself to the earthy, rhythmic beat that echoes the source of our true nature and joins us to the heartbeat of the earth. The drum unites all people as one. 

A 30 minute drum journey that features the Thunder Drum. American Indian style hand held Drums. Rattles, Thundertubes, Rainsticks & Harmonic Whirlies.

Thunder Drum Dreaming Journey This is usually an indoor journey during the cooler months, with a gentler feel, where guests sit back and relax while we take you on a mystical rhythmic journey with sound effects across an ancient inner soundscape that takes you to the inner regions of Earth, Self and Beyond....Thus, we enter Thunder Drum Dreaming.

Drum Journeying is believed to assist one to reconnect to one's inner self, enhance our self empowerment and creative expression, enables ability to gain insight to personal issues to access help & personal healing, heighten our sense of life purpose.

THE PYRAMID ROOM


Make sure you arrive with plenty of time to experience the healing energies of our pyramid room, or visit it at the end of the retreat before you head home.

Built some years ago now, the pyramid was created to scaled sacred geometric specifications of the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Pyramids have long been known to emit mystical healing & uplifting energies. Sacred Geometry, along with Sacred Sound & Light (Colour) are the expressions of the creative universe.

We have chairs & cushions in there for your comfort. There is even a small crystal singing bowl that may be played gently by our guests. And we have Colour Therapy Jars for you to experience for yourself the combined power of pyramid, colour & quiet contemplation.

We ask that silence is maintained while in the pyramid out of respect toward those who are reflecting quietly.

"Pyramid Meditation is believed to achieve deeper meditation, improve eyesight & hearing, lower high blood pressure, relieve insomnia, arthritis & headaches, faster healing for sores & broken bones, improves memory & increase confidence levels, increase energy levels, balance hormones, improves concentration & understanding" 


You are welcome to try it for yourself.
