April 2023

Welcoming April
Sending today to wish you Happy Spring Equinox 
April comes from the Latin verb “Aperire” which means “to open.” As the flowers and trees begin to open, bird song seems louder with lighter, warmer days it’s a time to start fresh and shed those cool winter layers. With nature at its most creative, awakening from it’s winter sleep.

Sound Journey / Gong Baths can be highly rejuvenating for the mind, body and spirit bringing about an overall sense of relaxation.  Described as a form of meditation, that can work well for many having sound as an anchor as opposed to silence. Think of it as meditation with melodies.

As nature rejuvenates with new energy why not gift yourself some time, just for you, to Nourish and Flourish this April.Merging the passions of two friends ~ Beyond Circle & Sound was created combining love of nature, Sound Meditation, wisdom, connection & community. I so enjoy creating beautiful gatherings with Katie Carswell women’s circles & wellbeing, who I am truly grateful to for putting so much loving energy into our Circle & Sound page on her website.  Please check it out to see future Wheel of the Year GATHERING dates and WORKSHOPS to help you rebalance, relax, reset and restore.Reconnecting you back to you!
