Meditation sessions are with Owner and Certified Meditation Coach Alice Rubert – using various holistic healing modalities. Each session can include up to 20 minutes of guided meditation, followed by a few minutes of silent meditation. Time for Q&A and discussion after each session based around the topic/session. Practicing in a group setting is a great way to form connections with others who are also present to experience the same feeling of connection, in Being. Alice Rubert is also a Certified Trauma Informed Revelation Breathwork Facilitator. Revelation Breathwork is a somatic/active meditation, using an ancient three step breathing technique to get out of our "monkey minds" and back into our bodies, paired with a curated playlist with upbeat & contemporary music to help get the energy moving in your body.
