What Is  Naam Festival?

Naam is Love, the Logos, Sacred Sound Current, The Word.  Naam is seeded in the Power of Service and giving from the great well of abundant Love that we each hold in our hearts.  Naam Festival is passionate about sharing classes, workshops, fun and safe forms of artistic expression, celebration, as well as individual sessions to support health, wellness, happiness, growth, and expansion.  Our mission is to spread positive energy, educate and share ancient tools for self-healing and self-care, come together in conscious celebration as commUNITY, and give back to non-profits that support locals in a positive way.  All proceeds of Naam Festival will be split between two non-profit charities that support local community.  We are grateful for your attendance and support in creating a positive space for healing, celebration, and expansion of consciousness!

Dane Sorensen

Dane's Dance Party 12pm-1pm

Whether you are taking Dane's pilates, dance, or bootcamp class, you’ll soon realize this is not your typical fitness instructor! Dane creates a space for you to play with your inner child, unleash your sexy beast, and perform on a broadway stage all while torching those calories.

Not only are Dane's classes hilarious and entertaining, but he has an extensive background in biomechanics. He started as a competitive figure skater as a child, and went on to master gymnastics, dance, and musical theater performance at NYU. After graduating, he was hired as a professional “party motivator” at exclusive events in New York City, was a personal trainer and loved coaching children’s gymnastics and choreographing dance competitions. Dane then moved to LA to pursue fitness full-time, receiving his 600 hour classical pilates certification from renowned Real Pilates training program. Despite his 15 years and 1000’s of hours of teaching, he constantly reinvents himself to give his students the ultimate fitness experience.

What Dane has realized is that it’s not ultimately about losing weight, or getting a six pack. It’s about being present in the moment and loving all parts of yourself to the fullest. And trust me, if you take his class he will bring out parts of yourself that you never knew existed! 

 

Get ready to break out of your box, as you sweat, laugh, and step into your unlimited potential. Don’t be surprised if your workout class turns out to be the highlight of your week!

This isn’t your typical dance workout. Dane brings so much contagious joy & energy to every class. Not only will you sweat & tone your body, but you will break out of your comfort zone as you let loose, elevate your mood, and dance in community. The class is a follow-along for all levels and samples fun music from every genre. Everyone is invited to this party! Who knew a workout could unleash so much laughter, sexiness & confidence all at the same time?!

Cindy Aikman

Mental Health & Emotional Balance

with Naam  2:30pm-3:45pm

The opportunity to focus on mental health is such a gift. NAAM is so powerful in helping soothe the mind. Through the breath work we find the space and tools to change our perspective and better practice being the witness to our mind mechanics. Naam classes help develop non reaction. Cardio is super important for our mental health! Naam has so many fun ways to work in cardio, blessing the brain with movement coordination, the heart with blood infusion and joy of moving with music clapping and laughter. With the sound power we get to rewire our brains and bless our hearts with the joy of singing. 

Naam takes our inner journey to deeper levels of understanding and helps make it easier to let go of our conditioned patterns in a non harmful way. 

It is the best medicine for listening to your heart and letting the attachments to our thoughts be gone, making us available to BE here NOW loving LIFE.

Cindy’s training in the performing arts, specifically contemporary dance, led her to New York City, the mecca of modern dance, in 1998 to study the Klein Technique.  The Klein Technique focuses on the very structure of the body, the bones, and how they influence every move, on every level, our body makes - physically, emotionally and ultimately spiritually.

Cindy also found her spiritual home in NYC.  Her journey began in 2001 when she developed a passion for the healing power of Reflexology, leading her to become a certified Reflexologist. In 2003 she completed and added Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training to her healing repertoire . . . and-then-came-Naam.

Now entering her 16th year of study, her immersion into Naam has included training in Levels I, II, III and beyond, of the wisdom behind Naam, and the Harmonyum Healing System.  In 2017 Naamflexology, the next level of Reflexology, was incorporated into the trainings at Naam. Cindy completed this certification program and is now a dedicated member of the Naamflexology teaching team.

Cindy adores teaching, guiding, working in the healing arts and feels so blessed to be able to share her passion for health in this Naam Festival and with the focus on mental health.

Francine Madera

Science of Harmony & Sound:

The "Naam Health Series" 9am-9:45am

For a decade, Francine Madera has been immersed in the path of conscious living, meditation, yoga, spirituality, and a return to the wisdom of nature and the human body. She actively teaches classes, guides group meditations, holds empowering women's circles, practices energetic healing therapies, and shares Universal wisdom through various online and offline channels. In 2013 she was certified by Naam Yoga International and remains registered under the official Yoga Alliance to teach yoga asanas for the physical body, pranayama breathwork and meditation, as well as sound therapy with mantra chanting and crystal alchemy sound bowls. She is hands on through her certification with Harmonyum energy healing, as well as with high-grade medicinal aromatherapy through Wisdom of the Earth.

 

In classes, corporate gatherings, workshops, and one-on-one privates, Francine guides students to access their deepest point of Self. This is where their receptivity and “feeling” sense is enhanced and they can tune in to the subtleties within and around them, so they can become better listeners of their own intuition. A recovering type-A personality, with seventeen years of corporate, non-profit, and small business experience in various industries (Hospitality, Community Development, Entertainment & Music, and Government), Francine's favorite part about sharing this journey of self-reflection and intuitive intelligence with others is that at the heart of it, the (life-long) practice is about slowing down, getting quiet, and mastering the art of be-ing, rather than do-ing. From that deep place of Truth within, everything is possible.

William Leamon
 Healing The Healer Bani Meditation 5pm-6pm

William is not your typical yogi having spent 18 years in the world of real estate finance in New York City.  In July of 2009, he chose a different path.  For the past ten years, he has dedicated himself exclusively to the study and practice of the teachings of Dr. Joseph Michael Levry including: Naam Yoga, the Harmonyum healing system and Universal Kabbalah.  Actively teaching since 2009, William's style combines a mix of explanation, energy and love that, woven together, create a safe space for students to explore the depths of their own self-healing and the Wisdom to light the path back to their heart.  

During this 1-hour seated mediation class, we practice three sacred chants that each in turn is a key to unlocking the full self-healing power that resides within each student.

The Healing the Healer Banis is the final mantra and consists of a precise arrangement of sacred mantra from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib that have been organized and chosen for their healing impact that is further enhanced by the music and recording by Dr. Joseph Michael Levry. We will add mudras (hand gestures) to the mantra to maximize its benefit.

No experience is necessary. Words to the mantra are projected on the wall for convenience. The practice of chanting these healing Banis has facilitated self-healing for people suffering from a diverse range of conditions.

This mantra and series of movements bring healing to you and the Earth.  Feel strengthened and empowered to live your destiny with a clear mind and an open heart.  Ashley Winn is a Shakti Naam Yoga Instructor and has a deep passion of spreading Love, Peace, and Light wherever she goes.  Come and practice Blessing Naam and open your heart, your mind, and your life to blessings.

Harmonyum Healing
SUNDAY GROUP SESSIONS (1 Hour)
Session #1:  1:45pm-2:45pm  |   Session #2:  6pm-7pm
When you purchase a Naam Festival PLUS Ticket

What is Harmonyum Healing?

Harmonyum is a powerful, elegant, spiritual healing system that was developed
with the aim of making self-healing possible. It addresses disease at the mental
and emotional level so that it may no longer exist in the physical body.

 

Harmonyum leads to glowing health, vigor, happiness and increased longevity
through the slowing of the aging process.

Harmonyum promotes excellent health in the body and spirit by nurturing and strengthening one’s primal essence. It promotes profound states of deep relaxation and restores the body to an ideal state of balance and harmony. Continuous treatments release the body’s innate healing wisdom and bestow the effects of years of meditation, bringing you into a higher cycle of manifestation.

When you receive a Harmonyum Healing Session, you are fully clothed, face down on a massage table comfortably.  There is very light touch over the spine of the back.  You are able to receive the energy session and relax for about 50 minutes before you sit up for grounding.  You will drink water after you receive Harmonyum Healing and are advised to be gentle with yourself as your system assimilates the healing frequency that Harmonyum offers.  Usually people feel relaxed, rested, rejuvenated, and at peace.  

Why Harmonyum Group Sessions At 
Naam Festival?

The founders of Naam Festival have been profoundly impacted by this form of energy work and are practitioners themselves.  Practicing and observing clients for the past 12 years, they have seen profound shifts in perception, health, and happiness in everyone who receives Harmonyum Healing regularly.  They have wanted to find an opportunity to share this technology with more people who may never heard of it before.  Naam Festival has been extended to a two-day event this year because of the impact of Harmonyum Healing.  In a group setting, Southern California Harmonyum Healing Practioners will give full 1-hour sessions for those who purchase a Naam Festival Plus Ticket.  You can experience deep relaxation and a shift in your energy.  Have your first Harmonyum Healing session at Naam Festival on Sunday, June 16th!

Live Painter - Naam Festival Artist

My name is Linzy Miggantz & since i can remember Ive always been very expressive visually.  My imagination always running rampant. I want viewers of my heART to see that light can be attained among the darkest of times. Through learning about plants,  we can empower ourselves to utilize modalities of balance and take back control of our health

Art is knowledge, it helps to foster growth/expansion just gazing upon it . Creating art helps to impart knowledge amongst those who may normally be put off by words. Visual expression allows the opportunity to have conversations about truths which are relevant to our world and very important. Art is a visual diologue which is an effective catalyst for necessary realizations & changes. This is why I create my heARTwork with strong psychedelic or otherworldly themed imagery. I want to create an environment to have a conversation where everyone can learn and contribute outside of the normal confines of what society dictates.

Cacao Ceremonies

Saturday & Sunday

It’s thought 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 God worship and in sacrificial ritual.

A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect to yourself and open your heart. Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your heart chakra, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you to the insight and awareness to move towards that goal.

Henna has always been associated with protection, celebration and blessing. It has been so in my life as well; affording me a way to earn my living with my skills as an artist, opportunities for travel, for meeting a variety of people in interesting places and at fun events. It has also blessed me with more of these moments of compassionate and joyful connection than anything else in my life. So much richness for one little street artist...
