*Two evenings of "RESET" Sound Medicine Journey with Shaman, composer, teacher and music therapist Kjell:
This journey is a unique chance for you to harmonize your emotional body, balance your chakras, strengthen the kundalini power, and release unnecessary attachments to past events and waste from your whole energetic system. This musical immersion will ground you and invite your spirit, mind and heart into your body. The connection with higher self in the astral will strengthen, allowing the flux of guided information of your path to stream more clearly as space for inner silence, introspection, sensitivity and passion for being alive will arise from deep within. Kjell Shibsted Sandvik, Norwegian composer, musician and sound therapist, will take you through a musical journey into your senses by weaving together sound scapes combining known emotional elements, beautiful music, shamanic wisdom. ancient instruments, and modern techniques. He will aid you into feeling a reconnection with the natural state of being with eternal love.
* Kundalini Yoga & Kirtan for Spring Detox:
Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness. The power of Kundalini Yoga lies in the actual experience. It goes right to your heart and extends your consciousness so you may have a wider horizon of grace and knowing the truth. This class includes meditation, chanting mantras, breathwork and gentle movements geared specifically toward detoxing the body, mind, and spirit. In addition, you will immerse yourself in the healing sounds of the gong tuned to the planet Uranus and healing the Sacral Chakra, balancing emotions. The gong is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world. Based on ancient wisdom, the gong vibrates at the same frequency as the body allowing the body to heal itself. The gong balances the central nervous system and aids in deep meditation. Singing crystal and Tibetan bowls will also be added to raise the vibration and heighten the experience.
Jenny Bergold (Jagatjeet Kaur) has been practicing yoga for twenty years and teaching for ten. Jenny discovered yoga to calm the body and strengthen the mind. Jenny has her 200 Hour Hatha certification from Heaven Meets Earth Yoga in Evanston, IL and her 200 Hour Kundalini certification from Spirit Rising Yoga in Chicago, IL. Jenny's classes focus on the mind and meditation, healing the body through asana, and uplifting the spirit through inspiration.

*Conscious Living in our Times
An activating and awakening lecture on how to navigate our lives using full potential. With special education teacher Kjell
* Who are we ? What are we doing here ? Why are we doing it ?
* Where are we ? Where do we come from ? Where are we going ?
* Why are we here? Why are we doing this ? Why are we so lost ?
In todays society, we have finally lost all contact with our origin. Maintaining a pure vision, to see clearly and unfiltered through the massive impact of information, junk culture, pollution and corruption can be a challenge, and sometimes quite impossible. This lecture aims wake you up and put you back on track as a healthy, creative and solution oriented sentient human being.
Heart of Transformation & Healing
End of the weekend, closing ritual with Kjell:
As we create a centre, set up the elemental directions and invite them into the sacred circle, we UNITE as ONE. This ceremony will be about focusing inward, visualizing and manifesting what have been learned, released, experienced and felt during a magical weekend. It's about collecting the knowledge and anchoring deeply into it so it becomes a part of our new reality and does not fade away into the shadows of the daily life routines and gets forgotten. So it always stays up front, and can be used as a tool for improving life. There will be a circle of sharing of experiences and feelings. We will tune is using voice, power words and movement. Ending with a strong bond. During ceremony, we no longer experience the “I”... we engage mindfully along and with the power and wonder of spirit. Choosing to connect, "we" become the fire, the sparks, the light, the smoke, the sound of the wood crackling, the moon and the stars, each other and ourselves, no one and everyone. The transformational fire ceremony is about creating a safe, sacred container - to ask the sacred fire to help us let go "our stuff" - to let go of the heavy, dark energies that are generated by resistance to life in the form of stress-related attachments in daily life. Therefore, we will let go and wholeheartedly release our accumulated dark energy and cleanse our energy body, our luminous self with fire. The sacred fire is a transformational gift of healing freely given to us. When we release dark energy at the sacred fire, it becomes food for mother earth as she turns it into nutrition that sustains life. The act of releasing or letting go "our stuff' to mother earth is a sacred act of giving and receiving.
