chakra wshopChakra Balancing and Activation
Chakra comes from the ancient Sanskrit word being “wheel” and according to such teachings, there are seven major chakras (or energy centres) that are located along our spinal column.  We also have many more smaller chakras located all over our body.  The chakras monitor the energy (“prana”, “chi” or “ka”) that pulses through our bodies.

When our chakras are open and functioning correctly, we feel vitalised and full of energy.  However they can come blocked due to negative emotions, doubts, stresses, addictions and illness, resulting in us feeling lethargic, unhappy and even “out of sorts”.

Attraction Doll Workshop

The use of Attraction Dolls (also referred to as “poppets”) date back to ancient Babylonia, Egypt, Greece and Rome.  From binding deities for defensive purposes (as the instance of the Greece “Kolossoi”) to the Hollywood inspired “Voodoo” dolls, poppets are basically effigies (images) of a person made from paper, clay, fabric, steel, corn husks or any other suitable material.

In this workshop we will be crafting our own Attraction Doll for whatever purpose you desire – be it for health and healing, protection, study, to gain employment, fertility, establishing positive relationships, or even the removal of negative influences.

The potency of crystals has been known since ancient times and today, they are not only worn to adorn, but also to heal, to protect, to divine, to manifest and to transform energy.  Each crystal has a chemical composition, myriad forms and colours.  They heal us on all our levels – the physica, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

Crystals are used for healing, protection, chakra opening and cleansing, physical and emotional wellbeing and enhanced psychic awareness.  In this workshop learn how to harness the power and energy of crystals in order to revitalise your life in many ways.
