Self-love is more than a state of being. It is a continual practice of relationship and meeting our needs that enhances our overall well-being. “When I love myself enough,” I make choices that are in my best interest and that reflect love.
In this workshop, we will create our own “When I Love Myself Enough” inspired booklet (developed by Kim & Allison McMillen) to map our personal guides to self-love.
February 16, 2pm-5pm.
This workshop will take place at Nalu Kava Bar at 722 N Sumner St, Portland, OR 97217 and will be private.
Unwind and relax in a peaceful atmosphere filled with calming sounds that resonate in harmony with your mind, body and spirit.

We wear many masks in public to limit the vulnerability of being our authentic selves. Although these masks can protect us, they may also keep us hidden from being truly seen.
We thrive when we allow our authentic selves to be seen and heard by people we choose to let our guards down around.
Join us as we craft the masks we wear and the authentic ones that live inside of us. Share your true self in a fun and supportive environment.

Join us for an epic Wise Woman journey into Mother Earth’s cycles, energies, and portals. Learn how to live in harmony with nature, enhancing your own self-care and casting potent magick.
About The Wise Woman Tradition:
The word witch comes from the old English word “witan” meaning “to know” or “to be wise”. A witch/wise woman is an ally and lover of the Earth who works with the cycles of nature, someone who reclaims the ancient practices of the lineage of women who came before her. She takes us back to the matriarch tradition and helps others come into full expression of our power through ecology and feminism.
The Wise Woman/Wild Woman uses her intuition and works in connection with the Earth- honoring the seasons and living in harmony with its natural cycles. She helps women remember where they came from, reconnect with the Earth, become stewards of the land, and step away from consumerism. To the Wise Woman, it is important to take away the negative stigma of the word witch, to raise our voices and be seen as empowered women and healers.
In this workshop, we will cast a circle, perform rituals for each direction, and re-member ourselves as part of the Earth’s wholeness and holiness.
We will meet on Friday, April 26th from 6pm-9pm in SE Portland. Please register to receive our address.

We live in a fast, distracted, and disconnected world. Yet, there is an ancient ritual and expression that has always connected the people back to the land, to their imaginations, to wonder and play, and to the deeper meaning of life— impermanent earth art. Nowadays we need this more than ever.
Morning Altars is a hands-on seven practice that is part creative expression, part mindfulness, and part nature connection. During this workshop, you will learn the 7 steps of creating earth altars. Each step offers an innovative way to slow down, open to wonder and curiosity, and listen to the language of the land.
Together, we will create meaningful and mesmerizing altars, offer them as blessings, and then surrender and let them go as a practice of impermanence. This ancient ritual and expression helps us explore the profound meaning of life's ephemerality.

Animals have historically provided us with potent wisdom about how to live in harmony with their community. Their way of life depicts adaptive methods to thrive and take care of the body, mind, and soul.
Because animals are not restrained by ego, they remind us of our deepest essence and reason for being alive. They exemplify the way that we are all part of the earth and embody how each of us has innate knowledge, resilience, and a place in this world.
During this 2-hour workshop, we will explore our inner complexities and the mystery of who we are with the help of animal cards. Let us learn from the great creatures who have inhabited our planet since the dawn of time.
“We are in an age that has severed itself from nature and magic. Animal wisdom is a method for remedying that dissociation.”
