Our team will create meditation zone 'EcoEthno tent'. We will organize Sound therapy sessions and Dreamcatcher workshop and will sell instruments and EcoEthno handmade crafts.

Sound therapy meditations “Gong bath” at  12.30 p.m., 3.30 p.m.  and 7.30 p.m.

‘Gong bath’ - blissful and profoundly moving experience! Using the power of sound to lower stress in the mind and body, Gong masters Bee Jack (Birute Jakucionyte), Aurimas Pocius and singer Inesa Dom harnesses the sound of ancient Tibetan instruments to bring inner harmony. Sound therapy is widely used throughout the world for its calming, stress lowering capabilities. It can be useful in controlling pain, insomnia, depression and high blood pressure. The vibrations can also help access the subconscious, increase creativity and stimulate the immune system.

Birute Jakucionyte (Bee Jack) – Gong master, playing Gongs and ancient instruments since 2006, trained with Don Conreaux and Tom Saltron. She uses the sounds created by ancient instruments such as gongs and singing bowls to switch our brains from a beta rhythm to the slower alpha and theta rhythms. The vibrations also spread throughout the body as our bodies are more than 65% water, which makes it the perfect conductor of vibrating sensations. This results in a subtle internal massage for all body cells. Birute is the author of two books as well as a blogger (www.jakucionyte.lt). She is also a singer of Lithuanian traditional songs since 16 years old and a crafter. Birute organizes sound therapy sessions, book presentations, craft workshops and ecology projects in UK, Germany, Norway, Ukraine, Ireland and Lithuania.

During the meditation you will comfortably lie on the yoga mat for 45 min.  You should bring warm socks, a blanket, pilow and yoga mat.

Session price: £ 10.00

11 p.m. Gong night meditation 11 p.m. – 2 a.m.

What is a Gong night meditation? This experience lasts around 3 hours. You will be immersed in the sound waves of the gongs, and as these vibrations wash over you they give space and opportunity to release tensions and blocks, and induce a deep state of relaxation, emerging feeling re-energized. The harmony created by the gong tones brings about an inner stillness where deep healing can occur. The gongs will be played by different gong players and when they will finish playing guests will stay and sleep/meditate till morning in EcoEthno tent. You should bring warm socks, a blanket or sleeping bag, pillow and yoga mat.

Gong night meditation price: £ 20.00

Sunday 17th July saw Regent Street, London transformed into a green garden party filled with arts, crafts, games, a brass band and much more for shoppers to enjoy.

Sunday 17th July, Regent Street’s retailers and restaurants came together to host the ultimate urban Garden Party. Three separate entertainment zones filled the street with typically British music, whilst shoppers wandered and enjoyed all of the food, drink and fantastic shopping that Regent Street has to offer.

EcoEthno team had an amazing experience to be in this event. LIBERTY invited EcoEthno to teach how to make dreamcatchers. We had three Liberty dreamcatchers workshops on the street. Our workshops were very popular and we were fully booked all day.

-We just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you for coming and helping make such an incredible day. The public were overjoyed and we got some wonderful feedback from them - couldn't have really hoped for more!- says Emily Brown, Liberty of London Marketing & Events Administrator.

We were very proud to work with LIBERTY and be in Regent Street Summer streets festival!

We have very good news! Our family moved from London to West Sussex and for three years we had a online shop, but now you can also buy our crafts at our small shop in Cosy cafe, Street lane, Ardingly, West Sussex, RH17 6UB.

We started sewing birds, angels and Easter decorations.  We have plans to organize craft workshops at the Cosy cafe in the future and we will also sell souvenirs in East Grinstead.

 

 

I am so happy to share my experience from sound therapy session at Egoist body studios in London. I loved the cozy atmosphere and enjoyed warm company of 17 participants.  I used the sounds created by ancient instruments such as gongs and singing bowls to switch our brains from a beta rhythm to the slower alpha and theta rhythms. Power of sound brings you inner harmony to lower stress in the mind and body. The Gong is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and as a facilitator to break up emotional blockages. During the one hour meditation session people were comfortably lying  on the yoga mats.

Upcoming sound therapy sessions 'Gong bath' are:

5th July at Egoist Body studios, 6 Fitzroy Square, London, W1T 5DX,

6th July  and 16th August at Paddington sports club, Castellain Road, Maida Vale, London, W9 1HQ, (Entrance next to Bon Appetit Delicatessen).

We have limited space. Please, register here: 5th July 'Gong bath', 6th July 'Gong bath

We have a very long Easter holiday at home. It is a very hard time with 4 kids, because I am working at home. My sons want my attention and I like to do workshops with them. Do you know any boys who want sew?! No boys would like that, but not my kids. I was ready for sewing workshop before Easter and all of them disturbed me  and asked:"Mammy, we want to sew Ester eggs and birds!" Ok, guys, no problem. I did  sewing workshop for them and you can look at the photos.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. And I am trying to create something sweet and original for this day. There was a strong wind outside so we found a lot of tree twigs on the pavement. We collected dry ones and made lovely hearts. It was a very simple and cheap workshop and now we have 4 very nice home decorations for Valentine's Day. Besides, two of my sons, 9 and 8 years old, used a hot glue gun for the first time.

All our workshops are filmed and put to YouTube. I am sorry, but it is in Lithuanian language and you probably will not understand it, but hopefully one day I will do the titres in English. Anyway, you can see the process of the workshop in this video.

If you want to see more of our workshops you can do that in my Facebook EcoEthno or YouTube Birute Jakucionyte
