A powerful expression of the alchemy of the divine feminine and masculine, their sound baths float listeners through a beautiful full-spectrum inner journey ~ through the shadows and up into the light. In addition to their voices, they will be weaving a potent array of healing instruments: bells, chimes, shakers, rainsticks, gong, brass bowls, crystal bowls, didgeridoo, frame drums, Native American flute, handpan (hang drum), & tank drum.
Immodestea brings people together to learn in playful ways, and few things connect people quite like tea. They will be bringing cuddly vibes and some delicious teas from their Tea Master Club to indulge in throughout the evening.
