Choosing Forgiveness as a Pathway to Well-being

dr swickert.jpg

When others cause us pain our instinctual reaction can be to lash out at our transgressors. However, we know that seeking revenge can lead us to experience additional stress, and even holding on to the hurt can compromise our well-being. In this workshop we will explore these themes and learn meditative techniques that can allow us to become a more forgiving person.

This lecture will be given by Dr. Rhonda Swickert, PhD. Dr. Swickert is a professor and Associate Chair of the College of Charleston Psychology Department. Her research interests are focused on factors that promote well-being and primarily revolve around mindful awareness.

This event is part of Still Soul Studio's ongoing lecture series about the psychological, neurological, and societal benefits of the meditation practice.

Live Sound Bath with Kennedy Oneself of Soul Medicine Vibrations

IMG_2178.jpeg

We are so excited to host Kennedy Oneself, of Asheville, North Carolina's Soul Medicine Vibrations, as he stops in Charleston on his sound healing tour! 

Kennedy's Sound Healing is a profoundly potent symphonic orchestration of acoustic vibration that guides us to the stillness that exists beyond all thoughts.

You are invited to relax and simply be. Come and listen without any effort of any kind. When you can listen with conscious alertness, just noticing the melodically pulsating conversation, meditation comes on it's own. Not trying to clear the mind of thoughts...becoming a witness to all that rises and falls.

At ease, we begin to notice the small gaps of stillness between thoughts. Gradually, we find it natural to reside in this immensely peaceful silence. We are simply creating the right circumstances for peace to make a home in us, for meditation to happen to us. These harmonic vibrations are designed to become a foundation for our journey towards blissfulness.

This sound healing is like nothing you've ever experienced. Kennedy weaves vibrations so fluidly people often imagine three musicians (Or that he has 6 arms). Deeply witnessing the resonating vibrations of Didgeridoos, crystal and tibetan singing bowls & bells, Gongs, Flutes (Chinese, Indian, American, Harmony, Drone), Handpan, Asian Harp, Kalimba, the Unity Harp and more, stillness descends upon the mind, and we bask in the glorious moment that is now.

The mind demands perfection and is often very critical when we don’t meet our own high internal standards. This can be especially true during the holiday season where we are supposed to be perfect at everything!

In this workshop, come and learn some meditative techniques that help us to be kinder and more compassionate to ourselves.
