Midnight Gulch used to be a magical place, a town where people could sing up thunderstorms and dance up sunflowers. But that was long ago, before a curse drove the magic away. Twelve-year-old Felicity knows all about things like that; her nomadic mother is cursed with a wandering heart. But when she arrives in Midnight Gulch, Felicity thinks her luck's about to change.

Crystal Singing Bowl Resonance is a powerful healing tool that gently promotes health and balance in one’s life. When played, they produce beautiful waves of healing sound and vibration known as resonance; listeners experience an increased sense of peace, harmony and vitality within their mind, body, & spirit, which can result in lower blood pressure, immune system stimulation, reduction of stress hormones, and increased endorphins. No experience required: expect to feel relaxed, rejuvenated and inspired! During the session participants may rest in savasana or sit; please bring a yoga mat or folded towel for your comfort. A brief introduction to the seven major chakras will be provided and then the Crystal Singing Bowls will be rung, each bowl is specifically tuned to balance and energize each chakra. Presented by Jade Dupuis.
