The Breath Empowerment & Sound Healing Journey

Matthew Kocel

Mar 31      6:30 pm to 9 pm

The Breath Empowerment + Sound Healing Journey w/Matthew Kocel

Stay tuned for the new date!

“Over 2 decades experience in Yoga, Meditation, Energy Healing & Internal Martial Arts and I’ve never felt energy like this before…”

A note from Matthew:

"The Breath Empowerment is one of the most intensely powerful energy healing practices I have ever found. Like my sound healing journeys, this sacred practice routinely gives a profound experience for anyone willing to sincerely try it. It is one of the few physical exercises you can do that increases your body's alkalinity; this is extremely healing as massive amounts of energy enter your body and create an engine-like vibration."


The Breath Empowerment is done lying down on a yoga mat and no prior experience is necessary. Matthew will be right there to guide you through the process and prepare you for the next phase of the adventure… a transformational healing sound journey. Matthew creates lush waves of vocal harmonics, overtones and throat singing that washes over you again and again, leaving you with an open hearted sense of belonging, well being and peace. His music has been described as medicine for the Earth and the heart of humanity...
The effects are often compared to sacred plant medicines.

Together these two practices create an "off the charts" experience!

Space is limited and prepaid registration is required to attend.

*** Please Note: This exercise is NOT recommended if you are pregnant or have a history of seizures.

*** Imagine floating in an ocean of sacred sound… vibration so profound it seems to take on qualities of form, texture and color. The effect is often compared to plant medicines. It’s hard to believe these tones come from a human. A surreal voice and hauntingly familiar melodies resonate to the core of your being, beyond time and space.

“Matthew is a musical magician, an auditory alchemist, you will be changed.” - Wendy Chivers This is your opportunity to experience pure bliss in an intimate setting with internationally acclaimed throat singer/sound healer Matthew Kocel.

“Words seem so deficient for explaining the depth of experience... I was being moved by sound, my whole body was light and vibrating.” - Vancouver Yoga Review Based in Vancouver BC.

Matthew Kocel is recognized as an emerging leader in the world sound healing movement. He is a committee member of the Global Wellness Institute Sound Healing Initiative, and just returned from a tour of the east coast, France, Belgium, Colorado, Texas and the Pacific Northwest. Prepare for transformation.

Closed Eyes, Open Heart

Kristen Wilson

Apr 2      5:30 pm to 7 pm

Closed eyes, open heart
A blindfolded experience of the self
This event is postponed

Please pre-register. Space is limited

This gentle hatha flow invites you to explore inward with non-attachment. Embrace your intuition as you are guided through verbal cues rather than visual demonstrations. A practice of alignment - joints, muscles, and mind. My intent is to cultivate a safe space for movement meditation. An opportunity for you to observe discomfort without judgement. To encourage play and curiosity. To be confident. To acknowledge and challenge doubt.

Each student will be given a (freshly washed) blindfold at the beginning of class. You may use an item from home, if preferred. Ideally, your blindfold will be worn for the entire class. The sequence is accessible to all levels, but you may opt out of any poses that don't feel right for your practice. At any point, you may pause in child's, savasana, or another restful pose to help you reconnect.

To maximize your comfort, here is a high level outline of the class:
Slow flow - 45 min
Grounded poses + savasana with healing touch - 30 min
Reflection - 15 min
During the reflection period, you may choose to absorb silently or engage in conversation. We encourage you to bring a journal to write about your experience. If you have any questions prior to registration, you may contact Kristen at
