Below is a list of some of the classes that took place at

Ayurveda 101

  Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of healing which is translated to mean "the science of life." According to Ayurveda, everything is made up of a unique combination of five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space.  Each one of us is a unique combination of those elements, called a dosha!

  In this workshop we will discover our possible dosha & imbalance, and create a unique ayurvedic plan to find more balance in our life. This will include taste (diet), sound (mantra), sight (color therapy), smell (aromatherapy) and routine. Once we learn what our own unique elemental makeup is we can choose a lifestyle that keeps us in balance!


Haylee Warner, HHC, RYT is an ayurvedic holistic health counselor,  movement & meditation instructor and corporate wellness provider based in Philadelphia.

In her sessions your will build a map of simple and effective changes to re-pattern old habits so that you can live with energy, motivation and vitality.  Her goal is to empower you to clear the haze and stop compromising your best self!



Plant Based MAgic Workshop

  In this immersive workshop we will be combining the art of natural dying and ritual to create a space that is both healing and educational. Starting with a very quick intuitive writing exercise, diving into what we are trying to manifest, as well as what we are hoping to let go of.

We will then dive into the dying process learning about natural dyes and arranging organic materials onto our fibers. Once we have put our intentions on paper and prepared our fivers, the circle will be open for sharing our intentions and burning them one-by-one. We’ll then put the ashes into our adorned fibers and into the dye pot. This act will represent as a ritual to connect to our healing between the individual and the collective. Each participant will leave with an original hand-dyed square piece of plant-based magic!

Lauren Schwind is an artist living in Philly under the name Subnormalchild. She uses a multitude of magical skills such as drawing, painting, natural dyes while also working as a healer, exploring the modalities of tarot and Reiki.

 Ephemeral Nature Art 

There are many forms of ephemeral art, but the term is usually used to describe a work of art that only occurs once, like a happening, and cannot be embodied in any lasting object to be shown in a museum or gallery. Ephemeral Nature Art is all about exploring - exploring interesting places, the things you find there, your own creative abilities. Our world is full of wonderful natural places and together during this workshop we will find some time and space to explore, collect natural materials that call to us, sculpt, paint, create, and generally let our collective imaginations run wild.

meditation through archery

Meditation through archery will use a technique known as "Single Point Concentration". This allows the archer to refine their technique through the use of breathing, mental focus, and instinctive shooting. Being able to hit your target simply by looking at it while blocking out distractions yet simultaneously being aware of everything else that is going on around you. This increases spacial awareness while also accomplishing the task at hand. These techniques can be applied to everyday life and help with navigating your environment with confidence.

Bio: Tim Wills is a professional archer and bowyer with over 40 years of experience in the field. After picking up his first bow at the age of 4, then making his first bow at 9, he has been on a long and spiritual journey throughout the archery world. Tim has shot in and won many tournaments in his lifetime but his real passion is handcrafting bows and arrows using wood and other natural materials using traditional methods. This has lead to an intimate understanding of the physics of archery along with a personal connection to the earth from which these materials are derived. Focusing mostly on traditional and primitive archery has allowed for a deep connection with the art of archery. Tim's years in the industry have lead him to be able to consult on multiple projects regarding historical accuracy on television and in cinema. Most recently has been fabricating all of the Native American weaponry on the HBO series 'Westworld'.
