Mystical Alchemy Ceremonies bring sound healing, music and ritual together in an inspiring and transformational way and incorporate sacred and uplifting music, guided meditations and the vibrational frequencies of 432 hz crystal singing bowls, Tibetan bowls, gongs, chimes, and rich soundscapes. Each ceremony includes an invocation, release process and sound bath to help align with the energies of the New Moon. Sound Healing is said to be the medicine of the future as science has proven that one can literally affect their DNA through the alchemy of sound, frequency and intention. As such, it is a powerful tool for transformation and manifestation. Innovative visionary mystics Heather Salmon and Donny Regal bring decades of experience as professional prayerformers, healers and agents of change.

SACRED CACAO
Sacred Cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Signifying both life and fertility, it was ingested by Royalty in ceremonial worship. Due to certain active ingredients that help release ‘feel good’ emotions, cacao is considered a heart opener. Creating feelings of emotional intimacy and pleasure which facilitate healing and transformation.

Our Sacred Cacao is lovingly prepared with the finest organic ingredients and offered as cacao nuggets to be eaten.

TESTIMONIALS

I believe Sacred Sound to be at the foundation of creating higher success. And the potent qualities of sacred sound is especially powerful when led by two healing artists like Heather and Donny. The transformative environment they create allows us to transcend the boundaries of limited thoughts and move into the place where our creative imaginings can take flight! It’s pure ALOHA! ~ Marsh Engle ~ OneMillionCalled.com, Author Sacred Agreements

Heather and Donny create such a powerful sacred space for healing and transformation to take place. I’m always brought to deeper places within myself. I always travel higher and stretch wider than I can even imagine. They are extraordinary together. The work they do is out of this world. ~ Kerri Leblang, Singer Song Writer, Author

“Thank you for the amazing Sound Bath. It was so tranquil and inspiring. I consider myself a professional Sound Healer and Meditation Facilitator. Mystical Alchemy is the best I’ve experienced. The two of you are truly anointed.” ~ Lava Bai (California)

Pure magic!!! This is the experience that Heather and Donny create during their sound healing ceremonies. They always offer a safe and sacred space to connect deeply with mind, body, heart, and soul. I feel uplifted and soothed at the same time by the power of sounds they produce and the love they share. They shine their light brightly to inspire true healing, wellness, and joy in individuals and the world.

~Melissa Sutor (www.dragonflycenter.org)

“It was the most magical, spiritual experience of my life.”

June’s Full Moon in Sagittarius is known as the Rose Moon, the Strawberry Moon, the Hot Moon and the Hay Moon!

Things are indeed heating up and the Archer reminds us it is important to stay focused on that which you’ve said that you are desiring to create. This is a time of trial and change. Have you been doing the work of Gemini and integrating all aspects of your personality including the shadow? Are you getting distracted with old sabotaging habits that take you out of your center? Or are you willing and able to pull it all together and stay focused and persevere?

Luckily, roses are not only a beautiful flower but also a spiritual tool of alchemy. They carry the vibration of unconditional divine love and help to transmute any lesser energies around them. So the light of this powerful full moon can be used to illuminate and transform any sabotaging habits and tendencies and strengthen our resolve to break through and rise up to the greatest expression of ourselves.

In the Tibetan tradition this Moon marks the anniversary of Buddha’s enlightenment! Remember, he achieved this when he accepted that “there is suffering” … yes Buddha’s catalyst to enlightenment was through embracing the shadow! We can too!

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” — Gautama Buddha

Join us for a beautiful evening of ritual, music, sacred sound and magic! Hosted by Heather Salmon and Donny Regal of Mystical Alchemy at the Black Swan Temple.

We are so thrilled to have a power couple on island to share their wisdom and gifts. Devaa and Stephen are the founders of the Shift Network and have many talents.

Flashback Spring Equinox 2012! A gig with our dear sister Devaa Mitchell Haley at Open Secret Bookstore in San Rafael, California!

Devaa Haley Mitchell is a high priestess of the 13 Moon Lineage and leads Sacred Women workshops internationally. She is also an amazing singer song writer and will be sharing music from her album “Sacred Alchemy” a compilation of songs dedicated to the divine feminine.

Stephen Dinan is an extraordinary wisdom keeper and visionary dream weaver for the new paradigm and will be offering deep wisdom and insight he has gathered to guide us through this time of the Great Turning.

Also joining us will be Kore (sacred dance), Ajaya Sommers (Core Intimacy Practices), Indico Jones (Percussionist), Lilaenya Sol (Singer/Songwriter), Deborah Dove (Harmonies) and others.

Location

This tropical jungle earth temple is surrounded by waterfalls and situated in a very sacred part of the island that was known as the home of the owl and a place that the Hawai’ian royalty received training.   We are a living eco-temple and the perfect place to reconnect with nature and the mana (healing energy) that the islands are known for.  If you are needing the amenities and creature comforts of modern hotels, this is not the place for you.  If you are adventurous and are willing to unplug and tune into nature than this nature temple will be paradise. You will wake up to beautiful sunrises and the sounds of nature.  The 2.5 acre sanctuary is a living food forest with coconut, papaya, banana, avocado, starfruit, orange, lemon and lime trees, a garden full of organic greens and passion fruit.   We also have giant bamboo, exotic tropical flowers and gardens.  The temple has gorgeous Indonesian art, statues and fountains throughout.  We are somewhat rustic and do not have air conditioning.  We have shared bathroom facilities and a clean outdoor marble shower.

Special Dietary Needs

Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs in advance.

 

Climate

Maui is a tropical island in the Hawaiian chain with a fairly mild year-round climate tempered by the Pacific Ocean.  We are located just above sea level the average afternoon winter temperature is around 75°F during the coldest months of December and January. August and September are the hottest summer months with temperatures in the low 90s.  Due to the prevailing trade winds, most rainfall hits the north- or northeast-facing shores and it is usual for us to have showers mostly at night and in the morning.  As with most volcanic tropical islands, however, many different micro climates mean packing for a variety of conditions: swim suits and light hot-weather clothing for the beaches,  a lightweight windbreaker for the occasional shower at higher elevations, and more serious protection during inclement conditions when hiking Haleakala.  Winter and Spring (mid-December through mid-April) is high season for Maui.

 

What to Bring

Comfortable, loose fitting yoga clothes, yoga mat (there are plenty, yet it’s usually best to use your own), sunglasses, sandals, beach wear, walking shoes, t-shirts, light, long sleeves / trousers for the evening, hat, sunscreen, ear plugs and eye mask (for light sleepers), earth-friendly toiletries, personal medication, reading material, journal/note book and pens, coloring pencils, art material (optional), camera, and most importantly, bring your open heart and your open mind.  To avoid using sunscreen lotion and mosquito repellent, it is highly recommended to wear long-sleeved, light colored, loose fitting shirts and pants.  You may find some mosquitoes out around dusk and most of our guests find the Maui mosquito bites are rather mild and disappear within an hour with no need for creams and repellents.

lumeria chakra june 11

Here is a review of the Chakra sounds, colors and affirmations, as well as the doTerra aromatherapy essences from our June 11th, 2015 Multi Sensory Chakra Journey!  As you can see with the oils, we used just one or two drops of each oil for the entire class!  A little goes a long way!  If you are interested in purchasing any of them, please let us know email BlackSwanTemple@gmail.com or call Heather at 310-415-8821!

 

Full Room Mist – Frankincense + Whisper

Application:  We placed a drop or two of Frankincense and Whisper in water that was diffused into the Yoga Shala for the duration of the class.

Frankincense is a holy oil that has been used since ancient times during sacrificial ceremonies to help improve communication with the creator.

Whisper is a blend for women and is a perfect balance of several CPTG® essential oils unified to impart beauty, femininity, and allure.  It is a blend of Bergamont, Ylang Ylang, Pachouli, Cinnamon, Labdanum, Vetiever, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Rose and Vanilla, Jasmine, Cocoa Absolutes in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil

 

Breathe

Application:  1 drop was added to a 1 oz spray bottle and spritzed lightly over head at the beginning of the class when participants were guided to deepen into their breath awareness.

Enhanced with the powerful respiratory benefits of Cardamom, Breathe is a remarkable blend of essential oils that helps you to breathe easier.  Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Ravensara, and Cardomom essential oils.

 

Citrus Blend

Application:  1 drop was added to a 1 oz spray bottle and spritzed in the area of the lower belly/chakras.

For the 1st and 2nd chakras we spritzed Citrus Blend.  It’s an invigorating blend that merges Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamont, Tangerine, and Clementine essential oils with a hint of vanilla.  It also cleanses and purifies the air.  Helps to reduce stress and tension.  Positively affects mood with energizing and refreshing properties.

 

Lavender

Application:  1 drop was added to a 1 oz spray bottle and applied to the forehead and crown area.

Lavender helps to open both the 6th and 7th chakras.  It promotes consciousness, health, love, peace and a general sense of well being.

 

Balance

Application:  At the very end of the class we placed 1 – 2 drops in hands of participants they then rubbed them together and inhaled the essence cupping the nose.  Then rubbed on feet.

Balance Grounding Blend has a warm, woody aroma that creates a sense of calmness and well-being.  It features Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy and Blue Chamomile essential oils!  It promotes whole body relaxation and evokes feelings of tranquility and balance!

Garden

Our newest garden patch at the Black Swan Temple!  Planted with organic kale, lettuce, chilli, onions, leeks, squash, cucumbers and more!  This was a project that took us about four weeks to complete!  That’s including Heather twisting her ankle in the process (wear shoes, not flip flops while gardening up and down hills)!

We were so happy that we were able to plant on the weekend that was the worldwide day of action to stand up to Monsanto!  Here in Maui is their testing grounds, so we are particularly ill effected by the pesticide drift and run off into the oceans!

More Photos from our Album

GMO Free Maui organized our community and decided to Plant The Solution instead of Marching Against Monsanto and we had an enormously successful day of planting with about 200 volunteers in Lahaina!  Even Neil Young and Daryl Hannah showed up and did some planting!
