This is one way to leverage our privilege and stand for equity for everyone. If you cannot pay the higher end suggested, consider what is authentically sustainable for you, and pay that.

Music, Art, and Activism Movement Presents: Sound Healing/Yoga Nidra Benefit for Women’s Rights
Welcome to our monthly Benefit Sound Bath Series! My mission behind creating this series is to bring more peace to the community and to the world. It is designed to fill you with serenity, and healing that you can spread throughout your community, while at the same time helping nonprofit organizations throughout the nation and the world.
This month, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Women’s Fund of Hawaii
This Yoga Nidra/Sound Healing event is designed to help bring a little peace, and comfort to your life. These are stressful times, and it is more important than ever to take time to care for yourself. We hope this session helps fill your cup and energizes you to care for others, and to face the long journey ahead towards creating a more equitable society for all. The more we bond together and support each other through difficult times, the stronger we will be as a whole. We are more powerful together!
Monique will guide the first half of the session with a gentle yoga routine set to crystal singing bowls to encourage relaxation and finding your center. You will then lay down for the practice of “yoga nidra” or yogic sleep. This is a guided meditation that deeply relaxes the body, breath and mind while leading the practitioner into an “in-between place” – a state between awake and asleep. It is here that one can truly de-stress, rejuvenate and let go.
During the second half of the class Bryan will immerse you in a musical sound journey with the crystal singing bowls. It is designed to help you reach a theta brainwave state, where deep healing, and rest occurs. You will leave the class feeling rejuvenate, restored, and with more peace in your heart.

Mission of the Women’s Fund of Hawaii: The mission of Women’s Fund of Hawaii is to support innovative, grassroots programs that empower women and girls in Hawaii.

Bryan believes that when we all live from our authentic selves, we have the power to change our community and the world. After studying classical music at the University of Montana, he moved to O’ahu to pursue massage therapy, sound and other healing arts. Bryan has a passion for the transformative power of sound, music, nature and art, and has been using crystal singing bowls to create healing music for over 15 years. His goal is to help as many people as possible create a life of well-being, purpose and joy, by offering live sound healing events, and creating meditative music for YouTube and Insight Timer.

Monique Bryan, B.A. (Pre-med), P.A. (ASCP) and (RYT-200)
Monique’s down-to-earth nature offers a space of stillness, bringing awareness to the breath, while guiding students through a meditative practice. She fell in love with yoga in 2007 when she was introduced to her first vinyasa flow class. She then integrated yoga into her life while practicing Western medicine. She realized how yoga allowed her to access the parasympathetic nervous system through the physical body with asanas (postures) and breath.
After yoga teacher training she began teaching the crossfit community, and then later became a traveling yogi throughout Southeast Asia and Central America. Working with different bodies has enriched her understanding of the body system that is always changing.
She is fascinated by the balance of yin (passivity) and yang (activity) in yoga and strives to bring this balance, along with a continuous awareness of alignment, to her classes.
