At Perks of Art in Hillsboro, Oregon.
Friday, Oct 26th, 6pm-8pm.
What we’ll make:
Neo-Druid Pre-Halloween Ritual Kit for protection, meditation, and peace:
You’ll get a discussion/handout about aromatherapy and make your own herb wand (aka Smudge stick made with local organic Oregon herbs) with instruction on how to properly bind/charge them in ancient traditions. We will have fun exploring the concepts of plant magic and plant medicine.
You’ll also get a tiny vial of essential oil, a gemstone, and you’ll be instructed on how to create your own private haiku mantra (or, if you’re shy about writing, one can be provided for you).
All supplies provided. Maybe just bring some water (creating = a need for extra hydration!), a pen/pencil, and little paper/journal for notes.
Age 12 and over only. Maximum class size: 12-15.
Perks of Art will have wine (for those who are over 21. Yes, we’ll ID ya 😊) and coffee/tea.
