SACRED SOUND CEREMONY
with Garth Robertson and Amy Durso
Watersong Peace Chamber
1262 Privet Drive, Graham, NC
Sunday, April 8, 3:00-5:00pmGarth & Amy Return to Watersong! We invite you to experience a unique Sacred Sound Ceremony with Garth Robertson and Amy Durso on Sunday, April 8, from 3-5pm inside the crystal-infused Watersong Sound/Peace Chamber. Although you may have experienced Garth’s healing sounds in other locations, being in the Chamber is like being in a giant crystal bowl, as the walls, floor and ceiling are filled with quartz crystals! And the Spirits of the Chamber assist in providing a gentle healing sound experience.
Garth and Amy are very talented artists and their sound creations will provide you with a healing retreat from the hectic world of which we are a part, traveling the Universe in Sound. In this ceremony, we will be guided into meditation with ancient sounds from around the globe including guitar, overtone singing, chimes, Tibetan and Crystal Bowls, flute, gong, frame drum, Shruti Box, tuning forks and didgeridoo.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Although we generally welcome children, this experience is for adults 18 and older. The sound experience inside the Chamber seems too intense for anyone younger.
• You must be recreational drug and alcohol-free during this ceremony.
• Chairs are available, but you may bring your own comfy chair or a yoga mat, blankets and pillows for lying on the floor
• We suggest you dress layered in comfortable, modest clothing according to the weather (the Chamber is a sacred space)
• Bring an eye pillow or other covering if you want to experience darkness.
• Bring a water bottle. Water is also for sale in the Chamber.
• Bring your love donation (see below)

ABOUT THE SOUND/PEACE CHAMBER
There are quartz crystals poured into the ceiling, floor and walls, so you are surrounded by the healing properties while within. The space itself is conducive to such healing that sometimes the sounds aren’t even necessary—a great meditation space! When used with Sacred Sound, the crystals are activated such that you are in a large crystal bowl! The results can be profound!
Ceremonial Chambers have been used for thousands of years by many cultures to provide a unifying force to help bond man together in spirit, values and attitudes. The rituals and ceremonies varied, but the basic principles and goals of developing inner awareness and understanding of the Universe were similar. Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow, is the visionary father of these sound/peace chambers which are scattered all around the World.
Monthly Traditional Prayer Ceremony

Monthly Fire Ceremony & Chanting Inside the Chamber
every 7th at 7pm
This ceremony was given to ALL PEOPLE by Joseph Rael, Visionary of the Peace Chambers, to pray for healing for the Waters of Mother Earth (physical and cosmic oceans). We sit in silence around the Fire and as we pray for the Water. After the last flame has gone out, we have the chance to share experiences and/or information that came to us. Please arrive early if possible to participate in preparations for the Fire Ceremony. There is never a charge for ceremony but a suggested gift of $5 or more is much appreciated and appropriate. We invite anyone who cannot physically attend the ceremony to join us by lighting a candle or your own small fire at 7pm and offer a prayer for the Water.
After the Fire Ceremony ends, we will accept prayer requests and pray in the form of chanting a name(s) or for something we want to manifest in our lives, such as healing, peace, love, creating a healthy planet. We invite you to join us in praying this way.
Monthly Meeting Every 1st Saturday,Exploring Story: Uncovering Acceptance, Joy and Enthusiasm
Story and dreams are powerful allies in healing.

In the warm and inviting home of Walton & Lori, we gather to explore whatever is on our minds and hearts, as we grow in a safe and secure environment. This self-exploring group has been meeting monthly for over 5 years.
Class fee: $35.00 each class. Pre-registration requested.
