Our classic lets-talk-weed gathering. Let’s talk about where we are with cannabis, who we are with cannabis, weed stigmatization, favorite ways to take in cannabis, and implementing a grow-your-own mindset. CBD edibles, oil massage rub downs, outdoor time and plaint spirit meditation are all offerings we will bring in. Come with questions!
Diving into an Ayurvedic self-care practice, combining the classics with the superpositioning of ourselves in the Northeast. Speaking of the intermixing of dosha profiles that we all experience, and how we can balance our mind, body, senses and spirit through New England based herbs.
Introduction to Ayurveda, the most ancient of healing practices, meets extra juicy metaphysics in the form of crystals. Lets dive into our Vedic mind / body profiles (the doshas!) and figure out which ones we may embody most. Then - let’s pair them with crystals + stones that may help sync any dosha imbalances. Feel for yourself - we will end class with breathwork and a meditation to see what crystals you vibrate best with - determining what doshas may be most present for you.
Brought to the ladies and gents that want to dive deep into their own goddess archetypes. We will be covering a different goddess at every meeting - on Tuesday nights, the day of YANG, masculinity, to balance out all the juicy shakti energy we will be harnessing. Prepare to read, share, laugh, meditate, and create your own super goddess.

They say when you enter the darkness, you come out seeing the most light. As humans, we are not strangers to sinking into depths of shadow, and transcending with luminance. Let’s tease out the darker side of our existence to shine the light on what needs most healing. We will dive into the archetypes of our personalities and how to evolve them to become the Jedi that you are. Swing that light saber into the dark.
Spring is the time of year that the earth is thawing... and so are we. Time to reconnect with the parts of ourselves that we may have put on ice over the winter.
Kapha dosha, one of the main energies in Ayurveda, is prominent during this time of year. Kapha is nourishing and supportive. When Kapha in our lymph, lungs, digestive system and brain are taken care of and flushed properly - we create healthy mental and physical cushioning.
Let’s talk about springtime aspirations, herbal detoxing, pranayam to oxygenate, how to remain light as the flowers bloom and birds return, and how to keep the heavy, dense and stagnant feels of Kapha in check as we emerge from the springtime mud. You’re a unique otherworldly flower... bloom
