ॐ Crystal Healing led by professional healer, Corrine Henry using the Red Jasper and Rose Quartz to channel grounding energy and unconditional love respectively. These charged grounding stones will be yours to hold and keep.
ॐ A cleansing healing sound bath guided by Paula Tait that will empower us to relinquish control of the thinking-mind enabling our innate wisdom to return us to a state of inner harmony and balance.
ॐ Opportunity to journal your thoughts at the end onto a piece of paper so that you may abandon any burdens before you leave. Venture back into the world healed.
ॐ Ayurvedic snacks to be served at the end.
