The sacred feminine | a monthly women’s circle


sundays | 2 - 4pm
may 5th | june 9th | september 15th

For thousands of years, women have gathered together to create a supportive space in which to share, nurture, and connect. The circle brings a powerful opportunity for healing and transformation. It is a space for women to join in rhythm, ritual, wisdom, and prayer.

Join Joanna and Rachael for 'The Sacred Feminine,' a monthly Women's Circle and the coming together of women of all ages and backgrounds. Each month, we will explore a specific theme as we engage in intentional movement, meditation, discussion, and reflection. Joanna and Rachael will draw upon their eclectic backgrounds to foster a space of inspiration and community, incorporating practices of yoga, creative movement, psychology, aromatherapy, expressive arts, and astrology. The work will be beautiful, deep, healing, and fun, with the intention that its positive effects will ripple out into our homes, families, and communities.

This is a safe space for all who identify as women. Join the circle to discover and celebrate the beauty, radiance, and authenticity that is YOU.

*A portion of the proceeds from each circle will be donated to a different organization that supports Women. The charity of choice will be announced each month.


Essential Oils FOR Health & wellness

saturday, october 26th | 2-4pm


Essential oils are 100% pure gifts from the earth that have been used for medicinal and holistic health purposes for centuries to prevent illness, stimulate healing, and enhance overall wellness. They embody the plant's immune system, which contains its most powerful therapeutic properties, and support every system to restore health and balance in the body. Pure oil extracted from the plant is highly concentrated -- 50-70 times more powerful than herbs! The healing compounds of the powerful concentrate have the ability to penetrate and affect every cell in your body.

With the fall season upon us, it is vital to take the time to support and nurture ourselves as the seasonal changes affect our energy, stress levels and immune system. In this workshop, we will first cover the the basics of essential oils -- what they are, where they come from, and how to use them safely and effectively for you and your family. You will learn ways to incorporate oils into your daily routine for better sleep, mood and immune system support, and detoxification throughout the fall and winter months. We will also be making our own immune system support blends to use both topically and aromatically.

This workshop is an excellent refresher for essential oil enthusiasts and a perfect introduction for anyone interested in learning more about the healing power of essential
