Unity Founders: Charles and Myrtle Fillmore:
"God is the one perfect life flowing through us. God is the one pure substance out of which our organism is formed. God is the only reality of us; all else is but a shadow that is cast by some foolish belief or unwise combination of thoughts and the elements of being. When we let light flood us with its sunshine, all clouds vanish and we begin to see ourselves in new ways of doing, which lead to wholeness and health and satisfaction and growth." Myrtle Fillmore (1895)

In celebration of the Summer Solstice, you will be invited to honor the earth, and celebrate the light of consciousness within yourself and others, while immersing in the intuitive, mystical drumming & chanting of Worldbeat Music Medicine Artist, MJ Vermette of SacredFire.
You will also experiment hands-on Sound & Energy self-care practices to benefit health, balance and self-awareness, and develop your ability to use your heart intelligence to attain a state of stillness; to restore & shift your energy. **If you have any, bring your drums, rattles, singing bowls & any other sound healing instruments**
The benefits of Sound & Energy Medicine
Sound & Energy Medicine stimulates the release of endorphin in our bodies, therefore increasing a feeling of well-being and, in some cases, decreasing the need for medication. It provides relief from stress and anxiety, which are known to cause physical and emotional imbalances such as high blood pressure, headaches, insomnia, weight disorders, depression, and other various health issues.
Bio: MJ Vermette is a musician, sound healing artist, workshop facilitator and certified Body-mind, Taoist Acupressure & Energy Therapy practitioner, specialized in Sound Massage. She has extensive experience, supporting people healing from trauma, addiction, abuse, emotional, mental or physical challenges and has offered her expertise in diverse wellness events and facilities such as the Chopra Center for Wellbeing.
