About the event

The Autumnal Equinox marks the time in the year where the Sun is exactly above the Earth's equator, and we have equal hours of daylight and darkness. 

We all carry different qualities of light within us - darkness is just a different quality of light. If we do not integrate our shadow (our darkness), it will beg to be acknowledged and seen until we surrender and process. 

Create a profound shift in your being using the sacred modalities of breathwork and sound healing. You'll be invited to surrender into the absolute truth of who you are, acknowledging the quality of light within you. A deep Himalayan breathwork journey will shake loose any beliefs that are no longer serving you, and the sound journey will help rinse your psyche clean as we enter into this prepatory time of shorter days before the Winter Solstice. 

This style of breathwork can create transcendant experiences, creating massive shifts in consciousness, and opening up the gate for intuition and creativity. Experience the deepest dimension of yourself, packaged in pure bliss and truth. 

When the reiki-infused sound waves wash over you, they trigger a response in our bodies that converts those waves into electrical signals into the auditory cortex. Listening to music floods our brains with dopamine, and oxytocin. This can help to relax the body, reduce anxiety and improve creativity. 

***Breathwork is not suitable for those who are pregnant. 

***You will receive a confirmation email with event details. 

***Investment is non-refundable but can be transferred to another party. 

***Minimum age requirement 12 years old. 

Melodie was born into this world with the gift of song. When she was in high school she developed her love for singing and started a blues and rock band with her father when she was 18 years old, their band toured the Midwest until she was 32. Music runs through her veins, and it was something that had been missing in her life since her father passed away, and as a healer, Melodie found a new passion for sound healing. Melodie is trained in massage therapy, reiki, acupressure and hypnosis and has been practicing in the Des Moines area since 2004. Her love for helping others heal has naturally found it’s way into her passion for art and music.

Melodie has created a sound bath experience that is unique, using a combination of reiki, hypnosis and healing instruments to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system to create tranquility, peace and a great sense of self love and acceptance. Melodie’s sound baths will have a specific theme to help reach different aspects of yourself and bring awareness into your existence.

From Iris Aisle's website: 

Iris Aisle is a greenhouse that sits amongst our forest preserve in Madison County, IA. We built ( and continue to do so) Iris Aisle on the idea that we wanted to create a space that nature lovers could come and feel at home with. A sanctuary surrounded by medicinal herbs on the inside and all of nature on the outside. We knew we wanted this space to be geared toward smaller weddings ( max of 75 people) for the fact that there is no place here in Iowa that does. Everyone is a go big or go home sort of thing and we want to shift the mindset of what this day is truly about. -How true connection with those that you love most is important. Simplicity is our goal here. Aside from weddings we have goals to host artist retreats, and herbal classes.
