Learn the basics of what you need to grow food for yourself or for sale.

Shamanic Journey: Ancestral wisdom ways for self-empowerment" This easy and profound drum meditation offers to connect us more deeply to our inner source of power and wisdom. As a ceremony we gather in circle with kindred spirits to co-create a sacred space for insight, breakthroughs, joy, peace, love and growth. You will have the chance to find your power animal, receive support from spirit guides, kindle your relationship with Mother Earth, release old patterns, rejuvenate your spirit, and make new friends in the community. Lead by Frances Aiom.

"Discover Your Unique Gift" 
Creative visualization exercises act as gateways for us to explore and discover deep parts about ourselves that perhaps we would otherwise feel obscured to see. With greater awareness of ourselves, we have more choices available to us, and so creative visualization exercises can be powerful bridges to meaningful growth and transformation in our lives.
In this 1.5 hour workshop, you’ll be guided through a closed-eye exercise through which you’ll get an opportunity to connect with what your unique gift is as well as experience what might be blocking you from channeling that gift."To experience the full value of this workshop, please arrive on time. If you arrive during the closed eye exercise, feel free to join in and please do so gracefully to not disrupt the other participants' personal experiences. Lead by Brielle Elise
