Chief Standing Cloud an artist uses many mediums to deliver his artwork “Winter Count” form, made up of prayers, dreams, visions and hopes. As an artist, much of this is expressed when he delivers teachings of the Sundance and Inipi ceremony’s. Chief Standing Cloud is also a Chanupa carrier of the sacred pipe where he delivers prayers to the creator while in sacred ceremony’s.

Gongs by Julia
“Julia mission is to create communities where all are equal, boundaries are invisible, memories are made, dreams are possible and friendships are forever”
On the Sunday, Julia and Michael will be facilitating sound therapy through their magical connection to overtones of the beautiful gongs.
Julia is an accredited Gong Master who practises the art of gongs within communities, educational organizations and business. Julia and her partner will bring about harmonic balance to individuals on many different levels such as physical, mental, energetic, emotional and spiritual.
What is a Gong Bath?”
The goal is to give you an experience of yourself as pure awareness, liminal, and limitless!
During a gong session, your body absorbs sounds that it needs for healing whilst filtering out what is no longer required. The complex, yet delicate, overtones of the gongs, allow our superficial thoughts to dissipate and you can easily reach a much deeper consciousness leaving you in a very calm, relaxed state. The gong vibrations continue to work long after the gong bath has finished. Gong healing works on various levels – physical, mental, energetic, emotional and spiritual. Negativity and chaos are suspended; irregularity and resistance disappear and the whole being is returned to harmonic balance.
A lot like love, the gongs need to be experienced!
Come along and try this treat for the soul. Ask anyone who has experienced the gongs and they will tell you it is the ULTIMATE reset button.
