Holly Macintosh, meditation therapist and wellness guru will be leading us on a starlight meditation.

The calming energy of the starlight as well as nature herself, have long been reported to settle the frenetic energy that we all sometimes experience. Frequent practitioners of meditation report enhancing well-being, greater ability to regulate stress, and some also can invoke a state of trance or complete giddy joy. Holly’s focus is on helping you to lead your breathing into a state of peaceful restoration, this also builds greater mind body connection that will allow you to enter deep active relaxation.

Tantra Meditation

Offered by Holly Mcintosh

Wednesday February 22nd 


Many people are now turning to Tantra as a lifestyle practice. But beyond Tantra being a codeword for some kind of sexual marathon that Sting jokingly claimed to enjoy, what exactly is it? At its essence, Tantra is a practice that combines movement, breath, meditation and sound, to assist the Chakra energy system within the body to open. This opening allows dormant energy, known as Kundalini, to move up from the pelvis, along the spine. The movement of this life-force energy can help you to heal by loosening constrictions within the body that have developed over a lifetime. The expansion of the energy body also increases sensation, clairvoyance and one’s ability to connect with others. Tantra practices can also expand the energy body toward its true purpose — your true purpose. In this class, we will briefly touch upon aspects of tantra such as kundalini energy and the Chakra energy system. We will participate in a beautiful guided Kundalini Chakra Meditation that will help you to begin to allow yourself to connect to yourself and others in deep and profound way.

This meditation is being led by Holly McIntosh. Holly is a Holistic Practitioner who is lucky enough to split her time between the Steel City and her family’s winery and vineyard in Washington County. She has studied various forms of meditation for over 10 years, most recently spending the last five years studying at the Shambhala Center of Pittsburgh, with Acharya Adam Lobel, and at The Boulder Colorado Center with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. During this time she has also shared the teachings with the inmates at Allegheny County jail and students at Little Wound School in Pine Ridge, SD. Additionally, she has worked at the manager of community outreach for the office of the Mayor of Pittsburgh. As a Level 3 Reiki Practitioner, she has taught and shared the gifts of energy healing and transmission with hundreds of people including the people she met and worked with during a three-week Sacred Geometry December 2012 tour of Mexico with Mayan scientist and philosopher, Ac-Tah.
