Project Description

Maria Payne Vlahogiannis

Bio energy shaking meditation; energise your morning with a practice of kundalini activation, Sanskrit mantra prayers and song.

Maria has spent over 20 years as a dancer and musician using movement and vocal sound wave to impact her own health and the energy of many audiences throughout Europe. In 2009, her self healing journey went to new levels with the discovery of bio-energy shaking medicine. Within 3 months of training she began to experience clearing of long standing ailments and has to date only used this practice to increase her self healing abilities, and energy repair and increase. It is an ancient practice that is complementary to increasing connection and auric field repair even for practitioners. It is a Balinese practice based at an ashram in Bali, Indonesia initiated by her teacher Ratu Bagus (translation: Good Queen), more info at ratubagus.com.

We welcome you to join us 8am on the Sunday for 75mins of active bioenergetic meditation and Sanskrit mantra songs and prayers. Start the day by stepping out of the mind and into the body and heart field, ready to receive the rest of the day’s workshops with a present open heart. This ancient practice is used in many cultures across the world, to raise the body’s vibration and bring energetic blocks to the surface in order to release and restore balance.

Maria will be sharing this sacred daily practice that she has been doing for 12 years.

Please wear comfortable clothes that will support your body whilst shaking (so tight support for loose parts of the body as you would wear for a yoga, dance or gym session), a towel for excess sweating and a bottle of water. You may wish to bring a hair band to tie your hair back so it does not interfere with your focus.  At the end we welcome you to close the session with us with a chosen group song on the day, you are welcome to bring percussive instruments for this as well as your singing voices and dancing feet. Bare foot activity.
