‘Peace Starts With Me’ – A Healing Journey with Sound and Word

17 February 2017 (18:00 - 21:00) Alt Sanat Mekânı

Healer and shamanic practitioner Elif Özkoç and storyteller Pelin Turgut join forces to guide this special journey through a fairy tale. We may venture into forests, meet the animals who live there, soar with eagles, sit with wise women and men, fly to the stars, and more. Our intention is to find lost pieces of our hearts, creating more strength and wholeness. Healing sounds, crystal bowls, drums and rattles will accompany us. Together, we will learn to listen to our hearts’ guidance.

Limited to 30 people. No experience is needed.

Please bring your own yoga mat.

Tickets will be on sale at biletix.com & not at the door.
