Web_Image_TCToni Childs:
The one and only! Toni had such a beautiful visit last October she promised to return.
Rite of Passage: Into the Arms of Beauty is a 6 hour workshop that initiates the creation of a personal Rite of Passage. This workshop kick-starts an 8 month process that is engineered to release personal and ancestral baggage in order to create a greater bandwidth and access to SELF – Soul Evolved Life Force.

“The inspiration for my workshop comes from a Hawaiian book called Tales of the Night Rainbow by Koko Willis and Pali Jae Lee. The original Mo’o clans of the Hawaiian islands believe we are each born with a bowl of perfect light – and it is our job to tend to our bowl of perfect light.”

When: Sat 5th of March, 9:30am-4pm

Where: Araiteuru Marae, 24 Shetland Street, Wakari, Dunedin

Cost: $150

The Dunedin Town Hall.

Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, Toni Childs, has designed a unique experience which combines movement, yoga, meditation and live singing to bring us into alignment with the beauty of who we are…

“I have designed a yoga experience which combines improvisational dance, meditation, story-telling and singing plus a number of gentle stretches… In creating this event, I have drawn on instruction from two important yoga teachers: Peewee G Patricia Howard and Chocho Saul David Raye. In addition to a lifetime of working as a performer… With a powerful sound bath singing as a backdrop – including my Emmy-Award winning song Because You’re Beautiful.
I encourage people to deeply connect with the beauty and wisdom of who they are.” Toni Childs

Come and celebrate your magnificence with a special 90 minute yoga and meditation experience… Toni’s powerful voice bathes you in sound and love – and aligns you with the truth – YOU are beautiful!

Toni_class copy“Each of us are beautiful, dynamic beings that are crying out to experience more self love, self appreciation, and self care. My morning practice is a way to blast the doors off the hinges to our personal cages of limitation, and engage in deepening our relationship with our ourselves.”
