Metatron’s Cube, Ionic Sound & Evolved Productions presents:



Ξ Winter Solstice VI Ξ
...
December 18 & 19th, 2010
The Saskatoon Farm


Ξ Meta:Vision Ξ


Once again we have been invoked to gather & celebrate the shortest day and longest night of the year. You have been invited to join us in lending witness to this cycle which is coming to a close. In releasing from this segment of our journey, we allow ourselves to begin anew & prepare our seeded intentions for the return of The Sun. You are welcome to take part in this gathering & it is asked of you to find ways to enrich the experience of others!


There will be workshops hosted which will begin on
Saturday afternoon within the Acoustic Sound Healing Temple. One intention which will be embodied for these workshops is to broaden and explore our latent potentials for communication.
This environment embraces feedback & active participation as these are opportunities which will contribute insight and support of further exploration, beyond the context of the presentation.


Our potluck is rooted in a vision which is to draw the culinary artist out in each of us! It will be begin after the first two workshops, within The Restaurant Lounge. Please bring an abundant homemade gift of your inspiration to share and
please list all ingredients and indicate if the dish is vegetarian, vegan, gluten free etc.

Partner Massage - Workshop
Come experience the bliss of a guided touch meditation. Where you and your partner will embark on a fun meditative and playful multicultural massage experience that has strong roots in Indian, Thai, and Burmese massage traditions. Explore a deeper sense of relating to one another by integrating your consciousness through breath into a massaging touch, releasing the body of pain and discomfort leaving you and your partner feeling a deeper connection with yourselves and each other. You do not need to have a partner to participate, those of you that come as singles can have a wonderful experience being paired up.

Ξ Metatron's Cube Ξ

~ Featured Visual Artist - Shaun FreeZen~

Shaun will be presenting the past 3 years of cumulative content from his new media body of work 'Digital Union'.

A container collecting rainwater, this hand crafted content is sculpted into a multi-dimensional mandala which includes still images; the stained glass-like mirrors of collective consciousness, flowing portal videos; which reference iterative micro/macro fractal systems like Ray and Charles Eames' 1977 animation classic Powers of Ten, and live visual performances; which showcase the infinite possibilities of live visual data remixing, building on the Cubist notion of depicting all observable angles of a subject at once, by showcasing all points in time at once.~ www.freezen.ca
