“There’s no wrong notes when you sing from the heart,” says Emily Weer, quoting her teacher about her sound therapy practice. Emily has more than twenty years of experience in the healing arts, and is a full-time bodyworker, yoga and meditation teacher, and musician based out of Truckee, California. Through many years as a professional athlete, yoga and healing work have been a true blessing to Emily, and she has found that they complement the more demanding aspects of life. It is Emily’s truth to give back and share that healing energy with people of all ages. Her powerful nurturing and caring comes through her music & teachings, which she generously offers from her wild and free heart.
Emily’s broad scope and experience are evident in her classes, which embrace the wild and primal sides of our nature, bringing subconscious musings, worries, and joys to the surface as one enjoys the healing properties that meditation guided by soothing tones and music can bring. Emily says that “The essence of sound healing is coming back to nature,” and she uses her vibrational therapy to allow her students to overcome the distractions of the modern world, and to find a space within themselves where they can be calm and address their challenges head-on.
Emily will be leading a cacao ceremony followed by a kirtan practice at RAY 2017 hosted by Granlibakken Tahoe. Attendees are welcomed to sip a small cup of cacao, which will help to elevate their experience by unlocking their heart connection and releasing any negative emotions. Kirtan is a form of musical storytelling, rooted in the Sanskrit word Kīrtana; meaning “narrating, reciting, telling, describing” of an idea or story.* Whether you are confident musically or not, Emily’s class will help you to release any shyness you may have regarding singing or chanting with a group. As Emily says, “The less that you think about it, and the more that you just do it, the more freedom you will experience.”
Emily’s class at the Restorative Arts and Yoga Festival is sure to be an incredible experience mentally, physically, and spiritually. Prepare to open your mind, release your inhibitions, and learn more about your true self at Emily’s Cacao Ceremony followed by Kirtan.
