Mind/Body Connection: Practical Intuitive Tools: With Anne Mackenzie
There is a mind/body connection that affects us whether we recognize it or not. All of us can understand the unsettling feeling of being uncentered or ungrounded, yet few of us know of any simple tools that we can use to work with our own energy system and correct the problems. The way I view it is like this-we understand brushing our teeth is important for our well being. In my experience, grounding myself daily is equally important to my well being, maybe even more so. This class teaches the practical tools of working with your own energy system and how to effectively interact with your inner and outer worlds.

Each week, we will focus on one aspect of intuitive tools such as grounding/
centering/protecting; guidance/knowingness/empathy; auras/boundaries/sensing; and pendulums/cards/dowsing rods. Each class will include specific practical tools and direct experiences that will be useful in your everyday life.

INFO ON LOTIONS/BODY BUTTER CLASS WITH JOAN MORAIS:
Learn how easy it is to make your own lotion and body butter with natural ingredients that nourish, revitalize and moisturize the skin.  This is a great class to get you started on making and customizing your natural body care products with skin care oils, herbs, floral waters and essential oils best for your skin type.  You will have hands on experience with almond oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, apricot oil, grapeseed oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter, lavender, calendula, peppermint and rose geranium.  You’ll learn a basic, easy and successful recipe to make a superb lotion. Naturally scent your lotion and body butter with pure essential oils.  These high quality handmade products cost a fraction of the cost compared to paying retail prices for natural body care products.  Take home a bottle of moisturizing body lotion, a jar of rich body butter and a handout (includes detailed instructions, the recipes and a list of suppliers for natural ingredients).
