Suggested donation of $5 to $10 (tickets available at the door

Part of the One Nation Film Festival Series & SunWater’s Ripples & Rays Outreach & Education Program

Children of the Arctic is a year-in-the-life portrait of Native Alaskan teenagers coming of age in Barrow, Alaska – the northern-most community of the United States. For these teenagers growing up has become a little more complicated than it was for their ancestors who originally named this place “Ukpiagvik” (“where we hunt snowy owls”). They are the twenty-first century descendants of a culture that has endured for millennia on this isolated, but rapidly changing tundra. The harvest of the agvik (bowhead whale) remains the heart of their culture – in the fall, motor boats and modern methods are used, whereas, in the spring, whaling crews use the umiaq (a seal-skin boat made by hand) and ancient traditional methods.

The state of Yoga Nidra occurs when you can remain conscious during the deep sleep state.

Claudia Ingraham will facilitate the Yoga Nidra while gently playing crystal bowls, Tibetan singing bowls and Koshi chimes in the background. After the Nidra she will continue to play the bowls and finish with a clearing gong bath to wash away what no longer serves you.
