WELCOME TO THE 2021 LIGHT & SOUND HEALING ARTS FESTIVAL!

We invite you to join us on MAY 1st, 2021 from 1pm-9pm at the Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City, NJ for a day of COMMUNITY, HEALING, ART, MOVEMENT, LIGHT, and SOUND brought to you by Sea Goddess Healing Arts, LLC. Guests are encouraged to picnic on the beautiful lighthouse grounds while enjoying yoga, music, vendors, meditation, workshops, and more! Be sure to bring your blanket and your yoga mat! This will be a rain or shine event sponsoring Absecon Lighthouse. Donations to the lighthouse are greatly appreciated and encouraged so that we can continue to keep the light shining. Lighthouse climbs will be available at a discounted rate in the gift shop during the event. Activities for children will include bubbles, coloring, sidewalk chalk, yoga, dancing and more! 

 

The theme of this event is “healing forward.” As we recover from the darkness of this past year, we will come together in the spirit of unity and love to heal and SHINE OUR LIGHT as a community. There will be artisans and healing artists of all modalities offering their creations & services from reiki, intuitive readings, astrology, sound healing, crystals, jewelry, aromatherapy and so much more! Yoga for all levels will be scheduled throughout the day in addition to wellness workshops with featured healing artists. 

 

The festival will culminate in the evening with a sound bath meditation experience as Abra Merlino of Shift Studio (Ventnor, NJ) plays the crystal singing bowls using the lighthouse as a natural sound amplifier. During this meditation, you are invited to relax on your blanket or yoga mat and go within as you experience the healing sound vibrations emanating from the lighthouse tower. This lighthouse sound bath experience will be broadcast LIVE thru Sea Goddess Healing Arts and Absecon Lighthouse Facebook pages so we can spread these healing vibes from Atlantic City out to the world. 

 

This will be a beautiful opportunity as a community to rekindle our connection to each other and welcome the return of the LIGHT! See you there!
