This four part series focuses on finding beauty amidst the winter blues by going inward and kindling the inner flame of the heart. While it’s cold out, we can learn and utilize self care practices and remember our own unique and true warmth. As an opportunity to personally reflect as well as engage in community companionship, the Hibernation Workshop aims to be a soothing balm to chapped emotions while giving winter a new perspective.
Lead by Detroit creative and lifelong self-healer Trista Dymond, this four-week series uses storytelling, reflection, yogic practices as well as curated self care activities to help you find balance in the cold season. Cost is $125 per person. No previous training needed, come just as you are.

2/14 sets a theme of love, hearts,
and affection for us to come together to soothe, charge, and heal our own heart space. The gongs give each listener a unique experience as the tones are processed by the brain, slowing the nervous system into an effortlessly meditative experience. As the body relaxes, the gongs work to restore harmony on a cellular level. The heart is the greatest generator of electrical activity in the body, making this the primary receiver and healing center during a gong meditation.
Experience how it feels to awaken from a cosmic soundscape, refreshed and recharged at the core, to beautiful music and raw chocolates made with sacred herbs to help integrate and elevate. Each person will receive a rose and crystal matched to them to remember this heart-opening experience, and return to the feeling at any time.
Please dress comfortable and warm, and bring a blanket if you’d like. Drink plenty of water and avoid a heavy foods prior. Pajamas are warmly welcomed, even recommended.

Jnana is the path of inquiry and contemplation. Every human at some point in their life will begin to ask the questions, who am I, where did I come from, and what will happen when I die? These questions are of great importance in Jnana Yoga but Ramana Maharshi would remind you to focus on finding out who the seer is before worrying about where you came from and where you’ll go.
Jnana = Wisdom or Knowledge
