Positive Intention Bottle Workshop
    Saturday & Sunday, October 16 & 17

A "Positive Intention Bottle" is a version of a "spell jar" or "Mojo bag". For centuries, crystals, herbs and spices have been used to bring healing, a calm home, protection and to attract love or abundance.

During the workshop you will create your own positive intention bottle based on the idea that "I can't afford the luxury of a negative thought". We will use mindfulness as we layer the ingredients and create our bottles.  Some of the ingredients we will use include sage, jasmine, crystal quartz, citrine, chrysocolla and cedar oil.

The bottles will act as a reminder that if we want positive to come into our lives, we have to focus on the outcome we want, not on what we do NOT want!


Masks are required. Workshop limited to 6 people.

Workshop cost: $35

Additional kits: $15.00 

Wire Wrapping Crystals Workshop
    Sunday, October 3 & Saturday October 30

If you have a crystal that is energetically significant to you or that you just think is beautiful, and want to have it be part of you at all times, this workshop is for you! During this gathering, you will learn basic wire wrapping techniques using bare copper wire and a crystal/stone of your choice.


Together, we will learn and practice two simple wire wrapping techniques. Your crystal creations will be suspended from an 18-inch faux leather cord so that you can wear it yourself or gift it to someone special. We will have a variety of appropriately sized/shaped crystals to choose from (as well as the information on their energetic correspondences), or you may bring your own special piece. For the techniques we will be using, crystals with at least 1.5-2 inches of length work best, but we can make almost anything work if needed! 


Masks are required. Workshop limited to 6 people.

Workshop cost: $35

Animal Communication Workshop
    Saturday, October 23

Animal Communication is the special telepathic ability that we are all born with. It allows us to make a connection with our animal friends. Often, we do not use this intuitive ability as adults. This ability can be released through practice and workshops - it is simply a matter of relaxing and opening the mind and tuning in to listen to the animal.                                   


The workshop will explain and demonstrate how to communicate with animals, and the benefits of doing so.     

Masks are required. Workshop limited to 6 people.

Workshop cost: $25

Soap of the Month
Lavender  comes from the Latin word "Lavare", which means "to wash". According to the earliest documentation from Ancient Egypt, lavender oil was used in the mummification process. Lavender was used as a bath additive in Persia, Ancient Greece and Roman cultures, where it was believed that lavender helped to purify the body and mind.  Such a multi-purpose plant, lavender is used to promote good health and well being. Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites.  Lavender is widely used for relaxation and stress relief, and imparts calming qualities due to the soothing and unique fragrance
