Illume Pittsburgh Summer Solstice : Sound Bath + Empath Sober Bar Pop-up

Join us for an evening of transcendent sonic experiences with the tones of quartz crystal singing bowls played by Vox Lumina (Brooke Smokelin) that create a vibration to “recalibrate” the human energy system into a powerful place of resonance and deep grounding vibrations of the didgeridoo (played by Matt Matthew Robert Macri/ Octeel).

Follow this horizontal concert from 9pm - 11pm with two non-alcoholic cocktails included in the ticket price from EMPATH SOBER BAR and complimentary self care treatments in the Self-Care Integration studio (excludes the Float Pod).

*drinks also available via cash bar from 7-9pm, if you would like to take advantage of the complimentary self care treatments and cannot make the sound bath.

About 5Rhythms®:

Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms® are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego's hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5Rhythms® Sweat with Alyssa :

Alyssa will spin Waves, holding space for this class with minimal instruction. This is an opportunity to delve deeper into your personal dance meditation, following the body's intelligence, while guided by the music through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness. The 5Rhythms® – are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back,physical, emotional, and intellectual.

Alyssa is mentored by Ann Kite of 5Rhythms® DC and Charlottesville.

~~~~~~~~~

All are welcome!

There are no choreographed steps to learn.

Bring water, Bring friends, and Bring your curiosity to explore.

DROP-INS WELCOME ~ no membership required
