NATIVE AMERICAN FLUTE PLAYING

WITH MICHAEL LONGRIDER

Saturday
November 17, 2018
1-4 pm

Workshop Cost: $45


Join us as we welcome 3 time Native American Music Award nominee Michael Longrider in an afternoon of instruction and insight into this unique instrument. Learn the Basics for playing as well as the techniques involved to bring forth the music and harmony for peace within.

Have you ever heard the soulful music of the Native American flute and wondered if you could possibly learn how these healing sounds could be learned to be played? Are you looking to commune with the inner Divine found within us all? Join us as we explore the endless possibilities of this ancient and Sacred instrument. Have you already purchased this wonderful instrument and have no idea how it works?
 
Flutes will be provided for the class as well as sanitary tubes for your health. If you possess a flute of your own, you are more than welcome to bring it along.  However Michael would prefer if you use the flutes provided as this insures that all attending the class will be in a compatible key. Should you insist on playing your own flute, we respectfully ask that all attempts at the lesson be done after the rest of the class has tried.  This will insure the comfort and enjoyment of all students. 

At the conclusion of the class and at the break, Michael will have other flutes for sale as well as copies of his cds. Please also note that the flutes used in class will be offered at a reduced price of $50.00 to anyone attending the class.  These will be offered at the break and at the end of the class.

Walk-ins are welcome if space allows.   But please note that while Michael will bring extra flutes, walk in participants cannot be guaranteed a flute to play. So please register early.


Looking forward to spending a wonderful afternoon of music and history. 

Yours in the Spirit,
Michael Longrider


Bio: Michael Longrider; born of Scottish decent,  began playing the Native American flute in 2004 after hearing David Searchingowl play at a local powwow. A year later he was overheard playing that flute at the same powwow and was invited by the performers to share his song with the People the next day. Since then Michael has toured the New England area, and has become a welcome participant on the Powwow circuit in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island where he continues to do his part for his community.

Michael has been honored to receive 3 Native American Music Award nominations as well as 5 Silver Arrow Awards for his efforts. He has also been a presenter at the Native American Music Awards held in Niagara Falls, New York.

Class Description:

Reiki III – Master Practitioner
Tues/Wed

When Dr. Mikao Usui received the Reiki symbols and the power and wisdom to use them while meditating many years ago on Mt Kuryama, he accessed the same power that is available to all of us. Shamans from all time have interfaced the spirit world with the human and Usui can be considered to be one of the most powerful shamans the world has known. The practice of Reiki opens the intuition and thins the illusionary veils between spirit and matter. Within this opening lies an invitation to work directly with the Spirit in the healing process the way shamans and indigenous healers have done for centuries. Hands-on Reiki becomes a vital portal for the dynamic ways of working with the Universal Life Force Energy. 

In this experiential weekend, I’ll share the diverse teachings I’ve received with the discoveries that have come with 23 years of Reiki practice and 12 years of teaching. Through ceremony and practice, assisted by the four elements, plants, music, sacred stones, shamanic journeys and Reiki spirit guides, Wendy facilitates your opening to Shamanic Reiki.  

You will: 

  • Receive the Master-Practitioner Tibetan Buddhist symbol and attunement

  • Receive another archetypal symbol for use in healing work

  • Learn to work with your spirit guides and the four elements in the healing/cleansing process

  • Practice body-centered journeying techniques for yourself and your clients

  • Learn energetic extraction techniques and etheric body-work approaches

  • Learn energetic practices to support spiritual healing and the path of the healer.

Open to Reiki Level II practitioners and up - masters and master-teachers as well.  If your prior training was with a teacher other than Wendy Fogg, please provide a copy of your Reiki II or III Certificate by mail or in person at least 1 week prior to the class.

You will be given suggestions for effectively teaching Reiki throughout the duration of this class. Certificate given at the end of class. 1 hour lunch break. Please bring a bag lunch.
