Full Moon Sound Journey and Water Blessing

September 10th, 2022. 7-9 pm.

October 9th, 2022. 7-9 pm.

November 8th, 2022. 7-9 pm.

December 7th, 2022. 7-9 pm.

Please join me for a beautiful and relaxing full-moon sound journey and water blessing ritual.

The Full Moon represents a cycle of completion and allows us to release and let go of energy. It encourages us to be introspective and to set intentions in order to create something new.

Water carries the feminine energy of cleansing and flowing change. We will recite our intentions to sacred water as a prayer for our healing, and later take some of the moon water home with us to be used as medicine throughout the month.

Come, lie down with cozy pillows and blankets, and receive the high vibrational musical frequencies of Paiste Gongs, quartz crystal singing bowls, Auracle hand pan, Native drum, Koshi chimes, vocal toning, and more. 

Maximum 6 participants.

Please arrive by 6:50 pm.

Bring a small jar of water.

Ilumina: Visions of the Heart

7-10 pm. Next Event Date: TBA

Join me for a beautiful evening of conscious dance, breath-work, sacred cacao ceremony, heart-opening meditation, singing, and outdoor fire circle.

During these accelerated and life-changing times, it's important to gather with like-minded people to intentionally create the reality we prefer- a reality based on love.


Connecting to our bodies through movement and breathwork as medicine grounds us in our physical world.


Drinking sacred cacao (and acknowledging both this Mayan tradition and the elemental world in nature) brings us into direct communication with the wisdom of our hearts and our ancestors.


Meditation allows us to become empty so that Source wisdom can clearly communicate with us.


Rejoicing in songful prayer unites and strengthens our ties with one another.


Taking our experience around an outdoor fire, burns and transforms our intentions and ignites our spirits to soar into the unlimited possibilities of the universe.

"Barbra tailored my very own personal yoga flow, she was very helpful with making sure the yoga poses and breathing techniques were done properly to avoid any injuries. Thank you for opening up your space, I greatly appreciated it." Monique Y.


I am greatly benefiting from Barbara’s yoga classes. Her years of experience in yoga, breathwork, dance, and the study of movement give her the keen ability to adapt the poses to support my particular physical challenges. Through her classes, I am regaining my physical strength and learning how to trust the wisdom in my own body."Jocelyn D.

Chakra Numerology Reading


Chakra Numerology helps us to discover and understand our birth path in this lifetime. Through specific mathematical calculations based on our birthdays, we can gain insight into our dominant and minor chakras and create a personal calendar to help us evolve on our spiritual journeys. This calendar lets us study the effects of our assigned chakra energies which helps us to understand and contextualize our experiences in life. Knowing the effects of these energies can help us to bring presence and mindfulness to the ever-unfolding experiences that life presents us with.


In this session, you will obtain more self-awareness and practical knowledge ie. insights regarding health, relationships, career, life decisions, etc.


Typically, a session takes 1.5 hours long and the person leaves with a personal chart and typed handout.

Cost: $120

Private Sound Session


I offer several different thematic sound healing sessions. All are beautiful, deep, and extremely relaxing.

Typically, a session takes 1.5 hours long.

Cost: $120


"I felt very relaxed and at peace the day after my sound healing session. I've been sleeping well and finding it hard to get out of bed (I normally don't feel this way). My body and mind are finally relaxed after being in a state of constant anxiety for so long. Highly recommend this amazing experience. Be open to it and you will receive wonderful, healing benefits."      
Meghan A.

"Barbara (Eva) has delivered her sound healing sessions at a number of my meditation retreats. Participants have always felt wonderfully relaxed, rejuvenated, and deeply in touch with their inner beings. She has a refined intuitive ability to know what soundings have the greatest healing effect on participants. I highly recommend her sessions." Russell S.
