Join us as we celebrate 4/20 during the Pink Full Moon!

The full moon is a time of celebration and coming together as a community; it’s an opportunity to connect, share, and grow. Each moon represents a new season and this Pink Moon signifies rebirth and renewal. After a long, cold and gray winter, the resurgence of the color pink is a revitalizing dose of beauty and joy. It serves as a reminder that life is full of ups and downs; it is a cycle of hibernation and reawakening. The flowers may go away for a while, but they always return, more beautiful than they've ever been before.

The evening will begin with an intention setting and optional Spirit Stick Ceremony. Holy Fire Reiki Master and Shaman, Lauren Courtney, will curate a specific blend of herbs for the evening to call in our angels, guides and loved ones for a magical evening of connection with plant medicine.

Nicole Rutsch will infuse our food with healing energy to raise our vibration and to help align mind, body and soul. We will then join together around the dining table for a family style meal prepared by Nicole Rutsch and Lauren Courtney. The meal brings together farm-fresh food along with the addition of Reiki Energy and [a certain healing plant]. The food will be cooked with the intention of elevating the collective energy within and around us.

You will then also have the opportunity to add [a special spirit enhancer ;) ] to our dishes to further aid in this process. We will of course provide guidance that will allow you to be in charge of your consumption. This evening is an opportunity to connect, consume and feel safe in your body, whilst allowing your mind expand and explore deeper levels of consciousness.
