DWELL | New Moon Circle

static1.squarespace.jpg

The moon, being the closest astronomical body to Earth, has a profound effect on us. It represents the feminine, emotional, creative and nurturing aspects of our lives. During the new moon the sun and moon are in alignment. The sun's light illuminates the moon hiding it from our view.

The magic of the new moon is that it represents beginning. It's a great time to begin new projects, initiate important conversations, plant seeds and set intentions. The new moon generates negative ions elevating our mood and inspiring our desire to begin new things and manifest outward change.

The alignment of the sun and moon during the new moon creates space for the subconscious and conscious minds to communicate, merging our wants and needs, leading to a deeper more integrated life.

The new moon invites us to take ownership for our dreams and desires and to commit to the beliefs and behaviors necessary to get us there. During our New Moon Circle we will gather to identify desires and set intentions. Together we will take advantage of the powerful new moon energy that enables us to claim our dreams and chart our course.

Join us at our new space in Mission Hills for an evening of setting intentions. Together we will embrace our new beginnings through movement, visualization and sound healing.

DWELL | Autumn Equinox Celebration

12049573_1050768314967401_4880379010305312606_n.jpg

The beginning of each season is marked by a Solstice or Equinox - the point during the Earth's orbit around the sun in which it is at its least (Equinox) or greatest (Solstice) distance from the celestial equator.

At the Autumn Equinox, Earth’s two hemispheres are receiving the sun’s rays equally. The night and day are approximately equal in length thus beginning the time of year when our days are marked by more darkness than light and the beginning of Autumn.

Ancient cultures around the world have long observed the Autumn Equinox with festivals and celebrations honoring the change of seasons and shifting their postures and practices to reflect the seasonal invitation.

In Autumn we are invited to embrace the way of the Teacher as we learn to be open to outcome, not attached to it. As we walk the way of the Teacher we embrace wisdom and extend trust.

It is a time of letting go. A time of learning discernment and detachment.

Together we will explore Autumn's invitation to live well by sampling seasonal food and drinks and exploring the practical ways we can care for our body, mind and spirit. 

All participants will receive our newly released Autumn seasonal guide to support you in which foods, herbs, essential oils, practices and other resources to incorporate this season.

The moon, being the closest astronomical body to Earth, has a profound effect on us. Just like the moon's phases affect the ocean's tide, we too are affected by the lunar cycle. It represents the feminine, emotional, creative and nurturing aspects of our lives. During the full moon energy peaks then releases creating an opening for change. 

The full moon marks the end of a chapter. It invites us to let go of that which we have outgrown or no longer need by shedding light on the people or projects, beliefs or feelings that are interfering with our spiritual development.

During our Full Moon Circle we will gather together to participate in a heart-opening Cacao Ceremony to release these things - whether they be relationships, grudges, anger, addictions, etc. Together we will take advantage of the powerful and intense full moon energy that enables us to let go and support it with no-touch energy work.

Join us in our new space in Mission Hills for an evening of emotional, physical and spiritual release. Take your healing practice to the next level by releasing that which no longer serves you through movement, visualization and energy work.

NOURISH | The Art of Eating

As community leaders and entrepreneurs we're already focused on filling our bodies with nutritious foods to give us the energy we need to conquer the day. 

Although we may not be strangers to smoothies and superfoods we still find ourselves battling with digestive and mood disorders along with weight and sleep issues wondering what else we can possibly do. 

The brain-gut connection has been the missing link in understanding how we eat is just as important as what we eat. 

Together we will explore the psychology of digestion and how eating on the go and in stressful situations is hijacking our nutrition. We will touch on techniques you can incorporate to begin digesting and start assimilating those much needed nutrients. 

Join Kristy Malone, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner & Mental Health Therapist, as she shows us how to incorporate the art of eating into our everyday lives through mindfulness practices bringing healing to our digestive and metabolic systems, increasing our energy and elevating our mood!

photo1-1244.JPG

The beginning of each season is marked by a Solstice or Equinox - the point during the Earth's orbit around the sun in which it is at its least (Equinox) or greatest (Solstice) distance from the celestial equator.

On the Summer Solstice we mark the longest day of the year above the equator and the point in which the sun starts rising later and setting earlier.


"Solstice" comes from the Latin solsitium, or "sun stands still" named for the appearance of the sun on this first day of summer that appears to stand still reaching its highest point in the sky. 

Ancient cultures around the world have long observed the Summer Solstice with festivals and celebrations honoring the change of seasons and shifting their postures and practices to reflect the seasonal invitation.

In Summer we are invited to embrace the way of the Visionary as we embrace wisdom and discernment aligning our actions with our true nature. It is a time to swim into the deep allowing projects and relationships to unfold to their full potential. That which was budding in Spring is coming to full bloom in Summer.

Through the gentle guidance of Cristin Smith, Founder & Spiritual Director, we will embrace the luxurious growth of Summer - bringing acknowledgment through reflection (silence) and expression (journaling and sharing) to our individual experiences creating space to show up this Summer speaking and acting on our personal truth. You will leave our time together feeling energized and with your very own Saffron & Sage seasonal guide to Summer wellness.

CULTIVATE | Mapping Our Emotions

Your body knows when something is wrong before you do. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each organ corresponds with a different emotion. By testing our Meridians, we can identify which organs are compromised and their emotional counterpart. 

Each of us has the capacity to heal and the innate intelligence to do so. But how do we identify what our organs are trying to tell us? How do we identify the emotional baggage are we carrying around and then release it?

Our bodies truly are a treasure map for the soul. Learning to read our body-map lends to the discovery of what may be in the way of us reaching our full potential. 

This time of year often brings feelings of grief, tension and stress. Find out how to holistically support those emotions this season under the gentle guidance of Daniela Rahimi, Life Coach, Energy Practitioner and Certified Hypnotist. Together we will explore how to read our body-map and how to support ourselves using plant-based nutrition, medicine, movement and visualization.

NOURISH | Private Spring Gathering

sarahshreves.com-5549.jpg

Each season brings forth a different invitation and therefore a unique assortment of postures and practices. 

In Spring we are invited to embrace the way of the Healer as we pay attention to what has heart and meaning. It is a time of birth and new beginnings. That which was seemingly dormant in Winter is now emerging and being made visible. 

As young plants are sprouting through the softening soil our diet shifts to fresh and raw fruits and vegetables. It is a time of detoxification and letting go of what no longer serves us. 

This theme of detoxification carries us through the season as we explore toxic emotions that might be clogging our liver and life. Together we will explore the basics of the body's communication to product us emotionally and physically. 

Lastly we will explore the spiritual invitations that come with Spring and the unique practices designed to renew our personal vision and support our spirit.  

Through the gentle guidance of Cristin Smith, Founder & Spiritual Director, we will explore the seasonal invitation of Spring. Together we will learn how to nourish our body, cultivate a deeper emotional capacity and strengthen our soul.

The moon, being the closest astronomical body to Earth, has a profound effect on us. Just like the moon's phases affect the ocean's tide, we too are affected by the lunar cycle. It represents the feminine, emotional, creative and nurturing aspects of our lives. During the full moon energy peaks then releases creating an opening for change. 

The full moon marks the end of a chapter. It invites us to let go of that which we have outgrown or no longer need by shedding light on the people or projects, beliefs or feelings that are interfering with our spiritual development.

During our Full Moon Circle we will gather to release these things - whether they be relationships, grudges, anger, addictions, etc. Together we will take advantage of the powerful and intense full moon energy that enables us to let go and support it with no-touch energy work.

CULTIVATE | Mapping Our Emotions

Your body knows when something is wrong before you do. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each organ corresponds with a different emotion. By testing our Meridians, we can identify which organs are compromised and their emotional counterpart. 

Each of us has the capacity to heal and the innate intelligence to do so. But how do we identify what our organs are trying to tell us? What emotional baggage are we carrying around and how can we release it?

Our bodies truly are a treasure map for the soul. Learning to read our body-map lends to the discovery of what may be in the way of us reaching our full potential. 

The Autumn season invites us to contemplate, look within and give thanks. This time of year often brings feelings of grief, tension and stress. Join us under the gentle guidance of Jacquelyne Price, Holistic Health Practitioner, Master Herbalist and Applied Kinesiologist. Together we will explore how to read our body-map and how to support ourselves using plant-based nutrition, medicine, movement and visualization.

  • Registration will close at 5:00PM on October 23rd
  • Class will begin promptly at 6:30PM 
  • This will be a full class, so participants must be pre-registered 
  • Participants are encouraged to bring their own blanket and pillow
