Introducing the Centered series.

On Saturday, Janurary 27th, Ilona Holland held the first workshop in the Centered series, Discover your Light.

Centered is a program series that embraces the creative practices by which humans tap into personal healing and wellness through artistic expression, psychological and physiological awareness, and communication. Created in collaboration with Life Dimensions by Ilona, Centered provides unique workshops focused on the healing arts through mind-body therapies, laughter and humor, meditation and spirituality. Led by qualified practitioners and healers, Centered sessions aim to positively impact every participant’s overall wellness.

In the natural order of things, life calls us to move beyond the safety and security of friends and family, to embrace our kinship with Mother Earth and the beautiful light in all creation. What steps do we take, from the starting point of “me”, to join the universal dance of “we”?

“Discover Your Light” was a mindfulness meditation and vibrational sound healing experience taking place inside and out, of Taylor Dean Harrison’s ENUNCIATION. ENUNCIATION is a stainless steel sculpture – a cocoon of playable LED light. Participants were led by Don McKenna, an accomplished meditator, through a somatic meditation focused on getting you into a mindful awareness.

Val Stickler used Vibrational Sound Therapy, a holistic modality using vibration and sound that resonates throughout the body. Helping participants to relax, meditate and sleep, Vibrational Sound Therapy promotes self-healing of body, mind and spirit.

Their journey was completed within the vibration and sounds of Himalayan singing bowls, chimes and drums complimented by Ilona’s guided imagery meditation and Sue’s healing touch.
