Cleanse Week with Stacy Whittingham

 

 

Now is the perfect time to reset after the holidays! This is an opportunity to give some attention to our eating habits, what we take in, and how we let go. Let’s reboot together (there’s a lot of power in this group experience). Sometimes we have the information and lack the motivation. A group experience provides added inspiration and motivation. Let’s step in to this NEW YEAR with more energy and feeling light and grounded at the same time.

 

Education is power (always) and feeding ourselves is no exception. In this workshop you’ll “walk-the-walk” supported by Stacy and other participants as you experience the effects of cleaning up and clearing out.

  • 7- Days of nutrient dense recipe suggestions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Learn what “clean eating” can feel like in your body.
  • Do I have to let go of all that I love in order to be healthy? No way! Learn about healthy substitutes and what the good, better, and best choices might be.
  • What are super foods and why do I need them?
  • What do I need to know about nutrient dense foods?
  • How do I create a healthier gut microbiome?

What’s the plan?

Final Meeting Wednesday, January 18th 6:15-8:00PM

Investment: $95 early registration / $108 after Jan 1st (includes 2 workshops, Q&A, recipes, and sample bag)


Cacao Dream & Sound Journey with Winter Jendayi

 

Date: Friday November 18th 2022

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Price: $35/advanced • $40/day off event

 

This guided journey offers a mystical experience into the depths of the Self, where we find connection with our guides and the energies that are offering their wisdom, support and gifts at this time in our life.

Working with sacred ceremonial Cacao, we are supported in softening into our heart space as we align with our personal intentions as our compass and surrender into trust.

The foundation of this offering is Shamanic Journeying which works with drum beats as a tool to induce alpha + theta brain waves guiding one into a deep state of relaxation and meditation. In this state, intuition is awakened, allowing access to symbols and memories which offer clarity, soul guidance and connection with inner wisdom.

Throughout the journey, Winter will incorporate medicine music and purifying plants to help assist in the process of carrying you into deeper connection and alignment with your truest expression + the source of your being.

** Winter works with raw cacao from Ecuador which grows in the wild and is harvested from mature trees up to 150 years old. She first studied with this medicine in Guatemala in 2017 and carries it with utmost respect and acknowledgment of the indigenous peoples who are the original stewards of this sacred plant.
