Festivals are a welcome escape from the mundane world. They provide a place where we can forget our stresses and provide some much-needed celebration of life. The hectic lives we lead are put on hold and we surrender to the present moment as we get to explore music, interactive art, conscious social movements and so much more. The potential for adventure exists at all times.
There are journeys which can be experienced outside of yourself in the material realm and there are journeys which can be experienced within yourself in the internal realms. Any person who meditates with any consistency will be able to talk about the inner landscape. Many of us enjoy playing and celebrating in both realms.
I have created a special offering for festival participants who enjoy exploring the internal realms, a journey through a past life. Expert and loving guidance will be provided to either heal a past life, or to integrate traits from a past life you would like to master now. Both extremely powerful experiences which create a greater sense of love and wholeness.
These offerings are separate from my regular services as my regular services are deeply transformative and healing. This is merely a playful offering for the adventurous souls.
My name is Malakai Ray & I’ve been given a gift that allows me to use my knowledge & energy to heal. My extensive experience in martial arts, massage therapy, stretch conditioning & various types of body work from mind healing, chi energy & qi gong. It’s helped me master an effective system that is a fusion of all the best healing processes, both Eastern/Western & Modern/Traditional.
