Winter Solstice 2023 featuring Poranguí
As we drift into the transition from autumn to winter we have a tremendous opportunity to purify and rebirth ourselves into a higher possibility. Our intention for The Winter Solstice Gathering is to create a high vibrational atmosphere filled with love, unity, laughter and fun as we dance and celebrate our way into the winter season. This is a gathering where we invite brothers and sisters of all ages to attend and anchor in what it is that you would like to release from yourself and also what you would like to create for yourself and the more beautiful world that we are creating together as a collective. 
Join us for a Winter Solstice gathering filled with empowering workshops including Porangui’s signature “Music is Medicine” workshop, multi-genres of uplifting music from amazing artists, visual art, breathwork, sound healing, and high vibe food. Bring your blissful energy and intention for what you would like to contribute to this gathering and let’s create a vortex of ecstatic presence that raises the frequency of our world.

About Poranguí:

Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico and the U.S., Poranguí was steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. Drawing from his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University, Poranguí has over twenty-five years of international work experience as an artist, musician, healer, and educator, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well being.

As a live looping artist and one-man orchestra Poranguí weaves ancestral songs and indigenous rhythms from around the globe. Creating his performances from scratch using looping technology, Poranguí’s live grooves range from meditative to dance, moving the body, lifting the spirit, and transcending the divide between performer and audience. His World Soul concerts have taken him around the globe and led him to collaborate with many artists, including a current album series titled Kuya Sessions with Liquid Bloom.

Her life-long movement practices and training have led her to a current focus on facilitating Dancing Freedom journeys and continuing to study the polyrhythmic dances of the African diaspora. She is on the international Dancing Freedom training team and facilitates at festivals, retreats, and concerts guiding audiences into a deeper connection to the Earth Mother and the elemental wisdom innate within us all.

Additionally, Ashley co-creates retreats based in Sedona and around the world, curating containers for individuals to dive deep and feel held safely to become more of their authentic connected selves.

Quotes from Poranguí

“Approaching music from beyond the perspective of an entertainer, but rather as a healer, my intention is always to help move the energy in a space. How can I support this audience, these fellow humans, to shake off their funk and remember what it means to be free and fully expressed, what it means to love and be loved, what it means to be more authentically human.”
My art is that of holding sacred space. The degree to which I can hold space musically or in silence, on a stage or with a client on the treatment table, determines if magic will happen. Whether we are dealing with the space between notes or the space between breaths, the healing power of my work happens when I get out of the way and allow Spirit to move through me."
