Ollin Yoliztli Calmecac
Meaning “School of Blood Moving in the Heart” in the Nahuatl language of the Aztecs, Ollin Yoliztli Calmecac is a dance and cultural troupe based in the heart of South Philadelphia. A visually captivating portrait of the group told through their own voices, Aztec Dance in Philadelphia raises
questions about indigenous history and the retention of cultural heritage in the context of modern immigration. “We consider it a school because we are learning about the culture we have lost,” says one of the group’s members. The dancers of Ollin Yoliztli Calmecac bring their audiences a pre-Columbian heritage with roots in central Mexico. Kept alive by modern keepers of the culture like those in this trilingual Spanish/English/Nahuatl documentary, Aztec dance has followed the paths of contemporary Mexican immigrants into the United States. That migration has brought Aztec culture here, to Philadelphia. Aztec Dance in Philadelphia is an engaging resource for educators teaching modern immigration and a colorful testament to the resilience of indigenous cultures. facebook.com/oycphiladelphia, ollinyoliztlicalmecac.org

Sonic Flower ReikiSound™ (a.k.a. Scott Soniq)
From Philadelphia, this certified Reiki Master and ReikiSound ™ Immersion practitioner is also a seasoned DJ and producer. Throughout the years, Scott’s experiences showed him the immense healing potentials that sound can deliver; this was coupled with 25 years of independent study and self-evolution. His amazing Journey led presently to many diverse communities in the Philadelphia area. One present aspect of Scott’s Journey is Sonic Flower: a totally immersive and Life Enhancing sound experience. Participants rest horizontally or seated comfortably while bathed in the sound-field from 7 quartz crystal singing bowls. The tones emanated are deeply resonant and are not only heard, but can be felt in one’s body; immersed in a field of deep coherence -- a structured yet always-evolving cache of information that is rich in potential and waiting to be tapped. Typical ReikiSound™ Immersions usually last for 60-75 minutes and can be merged with your Inner or Outer Work.
Private and couples sessions are offered, which are tailored to the client’s needs, or group ReikiSound™ Immersions are offered in which a field of vibration is created intuitively for the highest benefit of the whole group. Also offered are Sonic Chakra Tune-ups, which require active participation by the client. Sonic Flower is also open and available to collaborate on any appropriate workshop/event.
Sonic Flower also creates deep-listening ambient DJ sets using self-produced, as well as other producer’s musics. He also creates ecstatic-body-music-DJ-sets under the moniker Butter&Eggs. The Journey is yours to choose; and this Journey is ours. Make your cells happy in a field of vibration. facebook.com/SonicFlower, EarthTribeHealingArts.com
