She’s Worth It – Monday, March 25, 5:00-7:00pm

Embark on a tasteful exploration of exceptional wines in our educational tasting featuring outstanding bottles. Each sip reveals a symphony of flavors carefully curated to showcase the affordability of excellence. From velvety reds with notes of blackberry and oak to crisp whites with hints of citrus and minerality, these wines redefine the notion that quality comes with a hefty price tag. Immerse yourself in the world of accessible luxury, where each pour is a testament to the artistry and craftsmanship that can be savored without compromise. Cheers to discovering the gems that prove that outstanding doesn’t have to mean extravagantly priced.

Into The Heart With Cacao

A Women’s Cacao Ceremony with Malú + Cindy

Thursday, March 7, 2024

6:30 – 8:30 pm

Cacao ceremonies have been practiced in the ancient cultures of the Mayan and Aztec people for generations. They used this sacred ceremony to bring the community together, seed positive intentions, and for healing.

Sipping ceremonial cacao brings many holistic benefits including boosting mood, and improved blood flow, focus, and clarity.

During this ceremony you will open the heart, connect more deeply with yourself, release negativity and invite in positivity and joy. You will be guided into the heart through the practices of sipping ceremonial cacao, meditation, journaling and sharing. From that place you will bring forward and set an intention that holds meaning and value for you. Then anchor into that intention through a healing sound bath with alchemy crystal bowls. 

No experience is needed – the only requirement is an open heart. Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing in layers (body will cool down during sound relaxation). During the sound bath you will be reclined on the floor. Please bring a yoga mat and props to support your body (small pillow under the head, an eye cover, and light covering/blanket for warmth).

$50 per person, RSVP on Eventbrite

Qigong (Life Energy Cultivation) is a series of easy to do non-strenuous techniques and movements that focuses breathing, activates the body’s internal energy, fosters relaxation, quiets the mind and helps to reduce stress.
