Upcoming Events with Dr. Christie Smirl
JANUARY 28th 7:30pm FUN YOGA STUDIO
Akashvani is very excited to be offering a kirtan at FUN Yoga Studio January 28th. We have been working for many months now recording our new album and have really taken pride in setting these classical Sanskrit meditative mantras to beautiful music to open the heart and uplift the spirit. When these mantras are properly pronounced during call /response you actually begin activating the meridian and energy points through your body which increases your life force.This is something we’re super passionate about and we would so love for you to join us and try a new musical experience as well as a spiritually uplifting experience. So if you are in town that night please come join us at 7 for chai tea, refreshments and time with friends. Musical starts at 7:30
MONTHLY MEDITATION AT THE HEALING HOME
FEBRUARY 11th 7-9pm
Join me February 11th 7-9pm at my home for a Chakra Balancing guided meditation, sacred healing mantras, breath work and sound bath with crystal chakra toning bowls and gongs.
Everything vibrates. We all vibrate at our own frequency, harmoniously or not. Chakra balancing/Sound healing meditation can unblock congested or disorganized vibrations and patterns. Every organ and body system has an innate frequency known as prime resonance. Each cell emits a sound frequency. In sound healing, resonance re-harmonizes cells and body systems that have taken on disruptive frequencies. Disruptive frequencies in our minds and body systems can occur due to toxins, pathogens, stress or emotional traumas.
Join me for a wonderful healing experience. We will begin with pranayama to prepare for the sound healing journey. Then you will be guided through a meditation for each chakra. Lastly, relax and re-harmonize to the vibrations of pure quartz crystal healing bowls, gongs and ancient mantras.
Cost $15 donation suggested. No person turned away due to low funds.
Politics free zone. Please no discussion about politics. Blessings

LIGHT OF ABUNDANCE RETREAT OCTOBER 11-20, 2017
Christie Smirl and Kathy Bolte are leading a spiritual journey to Rishikesh, India in the Fall of 2017 – October 11 through October 20, 2017.
This will not be a “tourist” trip. We will not be traveling from one place to another to see as much as we can.We will, instead, be nestled into Parmarth Niketan Ashram on the banks of the mystical Ganges River, and in the foothills of the majestic Himalayan Mountains. Parmarth is known across India for bringing spiritual seekers from all over the world to its doors to receive its blessings.The focus of our trip will be to Light Up Our Abundance. We will gather daily, in circle, for practices that will help us identify and bring to life the many expressions of abundance in our lives. We’ll learn practices that will help us cultivate & celebrate this abundance.
We’ll do daily yoga, practice meditation and kirtan. We’ll learn sound based practices to aid in the cultivation of abundance. We’ll learn ayurvedic practices to create abundant health. We’ll engage in many of the rituals practiced at the ashram like evening Ganga Aarti (fire ceremony at the river), and Darshan (receive blessings) with H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, the spiritual leader of the ashram. We’ll celebrate Diwali, one of the most honored holidays in India, and we’ll relax into the ancient energies of Rishikesh, the birthplace of yoga.
There will be a couple of day trips – to explore the infamous Beatles Ashram, and to sit in the palpable spiritual energy at Vasistha Gufa (the ancient meditation cave of the sage Vasistha). We’ll take a ferry boat across the river to attend kirtan at a local music school. There will be plenty of time to take a dip in the river, go shopping, explore the city and walk across the two famous bridges, Ram Jhula and Lakshman Jhula, and there will be lots of opportunity to enjoy the many monkeys and cows who will be curious about you.
If you would like to try a Rishikesh adventure, you can go white water rafting on the Ganges River. And if your muscles get a little sore, there are wonderful ayurvedic massages to be had.
