Pysanka, which means “to write,” is a traditional Ukrainian folk art form that uses a wax-resist method of dyeing eggs. In this workshop you will learn to use styluses to melt beeswax and draw designs on goose eggs that have been blown hollow. The eggs will be dipped into a wide range of dyes to create endless patterns. Learn about the symbolism of traditional pysanky eggs. At the end of the project, watch the wax melt away to reveal your designs!
Serving the Self: Mind, Body, and Spirit
with Regina Robbins, Angela Watson, Tiffany Moody, and Lisa Shalloe
Serving the Self…Mind, Body and Spirit
Life is a struggle. So many things that happen are out of our control. With compassion, we can learn how to take care of ourselves so we are not constantly reacting to the world around us. We can learn to tune in to our innermost needs, as well as that of the physical body.
Join us for an afternoon of self-care! Explore the many ways to tune into your needs and learn how to fill yourself back up!
Together we will learn how using essential oils can bring uplifting, as well as, stress- reducing effects through the healing qualities of our sense of smell.
We will dive into the meaning of mindfulness and how we can apply it to our everyday lives. Creating stillness in the mind, clarity in our decisions, and response-ABILITY in our actions.
We will share self massage techniques that you can practice at home as a way of maintaining the physical body. Relieving tension, tightness and built up stress.
We will then move deeper into the energetic body. Touching upon the healing benefits of Reiki and how our energetic bodies affect the way we feel.
Expect to leave with plenty of info on each subject, essential oil samples, mindfulness practices you can do at home, and receive reiki and massage!

Everyday Mindfulness with Angie:
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
Explore mindfulness with simple techniques that you can practice on your own to live a more peaceful life. While mindfulness is innate, it can be cultivated through proven techniques, particularly seated, walking, standing, moving meditation, or lying down. Mindfulness is short pauses we insert into everyday life; and merging meditation practice with other activities, such as yoga or sports. When we’re mindful, we reduce stress, enhance performance, gain insight and awareness through observing our own mind, and increase our attention to others’ well-being.
