About the event
Perception is the process of selecting, organizing and interpreting information from our senses. We’re doing it all the time - whether we are consciously aware or not. Our perceptions can shift when we have alternative perspectives presented to us, maybe from an external source, or by having a deeply profound inner experience to shift how we perceive certain aspects of our life. Perception is the culmination of our filters - our experiences that shape how we see the world.
What belief about yourself are you ready to let go of? What filter or lens do you view your life with that is no longer serving you?
Join Haley + Hailey for a contemplative evening focused letting go of false perceptions, with a plant-based assist.
Evening begins with a ceremonial cacao + functional mushroom tonic (optional) to open your heart, support your immune system and activate your bliss body. We’ll sit in circle and you’ll be invited to share what perceptions of yourself you are working to let go of, and what perceptions you’d like to replace them with.
You’ll then have the option to receive sananga. Sananga is a plant medicine from the Amazon that has an energetic healing power. Traditionally used by indigenous tribes to sharpen night vision while hunting, it is often used before ayahuasca ceremonies as it has the capacity to increase spiritual insight. The liquid medicine is dropped in the eye and creates an intense physical sensation that lends itself to a beautiful clearing and release. It’s been known to improve vision and restore optimal eye health, as well as increase intuition, clarity and insight. Sananga is NOT psychedelic.
With intentions clear, beliefs identified, third eye and heart wide open, we’ll flow into a deep silent disco psychedelic breathwork journey. Using an active breathwork technique, you’ll be safely led into an altered state of consciousness. During the journey, Haley + Hailey will walk the floor offering energy work, supportive touch and energetic assistance to help you release energy (consent cards will be provided, touch is not required!). The breathwork lends itself to a peak experience - where you may have profound realizations, insights, downloads, intense sensory experiences, altered perceptions, and emotional release.
After breathwork, you’ll be served herbal tea for grounding, and be led through a somatic meditation to help you integrate your breathwork experience. We’ll open up the circle again for shares and connection, and make sure you feel grounded and stable before going home.
Haley Niichel is a 500hr yoga teacher and spiritual coach, specializing in accessing altered states through breathwork and tantric kriyas. She provides intuitive counsel to those seeking healing using the modalities of yoga, Vedic Astrology, spiritual coaching, and somatic integration.
Hailey Dixon is an intuitive energy worker and plant medicine facilitator. She is passionate about creating safe spaces for folks to heal via altered states, assisting with emotional and energetic release throughout their process.
Those with mushroom allergies should avoid lion’s mane. If you have had Lasik eye surgery in the last 6 months, we do not recommend using sananga. This offering is not meant for those who are pregnant, and those who experience seizures or epilepsy. If you are currently in spiritual emergency, or are experiencing extreme mental health conditions, we recommend seeking a deeper level of therapeutic care and sitting this one out.
