Life is about growth and higher self yoga is a spiritual practice in the original sense of yoga, as in ‘union’ with something bigger. It teaches us to connect with the cosmogonic energy that resides within all of us. This energy is our Higher Selves, and it is the key to overcoming the inner obstacles within a person.
“A person’s growth can be uncomfortable from time to time, but doing the same thing over and over again will produce the same result,” Jaqui Kamp, Marketing Coordinator for Spring Hollow Hemp, said. “So we’re the only local seed to sell hemp farm around, and I am hosting an event starting on Friday, Sept. 10 through Sunday, Sept. 12 at Mount Hope. It’s on a beautiful property. It’s 200 acres, and the event is a two night stay about finding your highest self.”
Spring Hollow Hemp is Kamp’s family farm. It features a natural artesian spring hemp produced in rich mineral spring water. Spring water has been proven to enrich your body with magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium,” Kamp said. “All of our plants are enriched with this Artesian Spring water. Our natural spring is full of beneficial minerals making our Artesian Spring fed CBD products the finest choice to the consumer.”
Kamp said she got the idea to have a weekend of yoga workshops filled with a Ganjiki ceremony, sound healing workshops with gongs, meditation, breathing and good food.
Kamp and her husband are fourth generation farmers producing the finest artesian spring fed hemp in beautiful, scenic Calhoun County.
“So there’s going to be a lot of CBD, smoking, edible, all kinds of things available for the event. We’re going to have a butt bar, but it’ll have a lot of different avenues of things to explore with tools to find your highest self,” Kamp said. “So we have a lot of amazing speakers coming that are going to talk about different chakra findings and how to do breath work. We’re going to have a workshop for finding your highest self, which is pretty enlightening.”
Kamp said the Yoga instructors will teach restorative classes, sun salutation and talk about the gong. She said they will have two nights of gong baths.
“On Friday night and Saturday night we’re going to do meditation flash breath work followed by a gong, which for those of you who haven’t ever had a gong bath– is the most amazing thing. They have all their gongs set up, and bang on the gong repeatedly,” Kamp said.
“ It is the vibration of the sound that is healing and your body reacts to vibration and you’ll kind of just lose your train of thought, and it’ll go on for about 45 minutes to an hour, and usually everyone falls asleep. “
Kamp said people just lay on a yoga mat with a blanket or a pillow, get comfy and relax their mind to reach or align the chakras. “The rest of the time, we’ll go through rest-work for meditation,” Kamp said. “We have teamed up with the area’s top guides in these fields.”
She also mentions that visitors will have the opportunity to attend soil workshops on the different parts of the camp because there’ll be a lot of education available from attending those workshops too.
Check-in is at 3 p.m. Higher Selfers need to bring a few things with them as asked for the workshops:
• Cannabis, but there will be products available for purchase at the bud bar
• Any snacks or adult beverages
• Yoga mats, props such as blocks or straps
• Meditation blanket
• Bug spray
• Comfortable clothes and layers it gets cold at night
• Personal items (towels, soap, shampoo and the like)
“ Bring your positive energy, have an open mind for the weekend and it will be an event to remember,” Kamp said.
