MUSIC & MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE
Come alive and wake up under the waves of energy created by the mystical music of Zarah Petersons fireside sessions. Zarah will serenade us with her beautiful voice, setting the mood and tune for awakening and expanding consciousness. Zarah will be sharing a variety of her own work as a singer songwriter, as well as some familiar tunes we can all sing along too.
Zarah is a self-taught guitarist, playing guitar and singing from a young age. She is currently living in the city of Toronto. Her soulful voice in combination with her powerful lyrics create a very unique style. Zarah uses her music as a healing medium, and seeks to honour the full spectrum of the human experience. She moves her audience to a space of deep feeling and reverence for all of life's joy, pain and divinity. She uses her voice as a conduit for divine energy, flowing through to her listeners elevating them to higher states and assisting in purging and energetic clearing. She looks forward to sharing this musical and healing experience with you at Yoga Camp this year!
Why sleep in...when you can dance? Wake up early with Mateusz Factor, and Alisa Donkers, as they will be facilitating a sunrise ecstatic dance. We will start with an opening circle and share an activating blue lotus tea ceremony to set our intention for the journey. To prepare the mind you will be guided through an invigorating breath-work followed by a guided meditation. As the sun rises Mateusz will be our musical magician as we intuitively stretch, dance and move in whichever way feels right. The experience will end with a closing ceremony and a guided meditation. Mateusz’s musical journey will take you through continents, lakes, mountains and earthly sounds. Deep and mystical vibes from our guest, mixing music with rising of the sun.
