Presented by Cynthia Lorena of Cynthia Lorena and Michelle Elizabeth of Fire and Bloom, join us for our New Moon gathering & workshop, a monthly positive circle meet-up session that will assist you in setting solid and new intentions - whether for your business or in your personal life - while harnessing the strong energy of the moon and connecting with other creative and like-minded individuals.

Each month will have the following theme:

February- “Aquarius” New Moon

March- “Pisces” New Moon

April- “Aries” New Moon

WHAT IS A NEW MOON RITUAL: New Moon rituals are made for those who wish to set new intentions and goals, gain clarity, work through problems and emotional blockages.

WHY SET AN INTENTION? Setting an intention is essential to achieving your goals and placing your mindset in a healthy and positive mode. By setting your intentions, you are activating a part of your receptivity. If you begin your day and have no intention, then you’re essentially getting on a bike with no direction. This can be great if you would like to to allow fate to just happen to you. However, if you know exactly where you want to go or what you want to achieve, the power of setting an intention is going to help you get to your destination.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:  This two-hour gathering and workshop will begin with an educational introduction to ritual gatherings and what is the meaning behind it, the new moon, and the astrological properties of the month. To prep for the ritual, a cleansing of negative energies will take place using Sage and Palo Santo; the process better known as “smudging.”

The introduction will be followed by setting your intentions. We will provide a complimentary crystal to each guest, and ask all guests to set their intentions, goals, and mindsets they want to achieve moving forward through the crystal.

Each guest will place their crystal in a tin that will be poured with wax, to be used as a candle. The live candle pouring will take place during the meditation period. As candles are being poured, guests will be led through a relaxing and positive driven meditation, and welcomed to journal and write positive affirmations after their meditation. At the end of the workshop, guests will be able to take home their candles infused with the energy of their intentions.

Following the meditation, we welcome guests to network and share their intentions with others while enjoying complimentary light bites and drinks.

-Optional Rune Readings: Similar to Tarot readings but instead of cards, the readings are done with stones. Each stone has a Celtic symbol etched on it and represents a specific theme. Runes are gentle, healing and merciful during readings. They provide a mirror of magic for knowing the Self and are a means of communication with the knowledge of our subconscious minds. The reader does not give instructions on what to do next but points your attention to hidden fears and motivations that will shape your future. $5 extra for 7 minutes - paid on-site.

Additional crystals, crystal sets, candles, sage, and palo santo will be available for purchase at 10% off.
