Press release from Adapt Public Relations:
WHAT: The East Forest Ceremony is part concert, part ritual, incorporating elements of music, meditation and sound healing.
WHO: Asheville Yoga Festival and Trevor Oswalt (a.k.a. East Forest)
WHERE: Wright Creative, 795 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806.
WHEN: Friday, October 26th from 6-8 pm
INFO: Participants should come with items like a yoga mat, a bolster or a pillow to help them lie down and be comfortable. The mood will be set with the smudging of palo santo or white sage. Everyone will be asked to think about their intentions and then write them out on a prayer flag to hang or place on an altar. The ceremony is all about rest and relaxation while enjoying a music concert. The mix of traditional East Forest songs, described as ‘a vivid mix of the digital and analog realms with a social and spiritual underpinning,’ with deep ambient soundscapes will move listeners through the energy cycles. The idea is to allow the music to take participants on an inner journey to the wisdom within. The evening will end with a deep savasana, followed by a tea ceremony and sharing about the experience with others. The goal is for everyone to leave with feelings of tranquility, hopefulness and self-empowerment.
(Note: The East Forest Ceremony is not a yoga class, all levels are welcome!)
Tickets are available online at Eventbrite.
