Summer is surely in the air. I got to go camping over the weekend with Luna (my 5 year old daughter) in Massachusetts this past weekend, while Amy assisted in a course with her teacher Don Oscar Miro-Quesada. Magic was everywhere and some of it actually got photographed: check out this Luna Moth sighting.
It was a rich time and Amy is looking forward to sharing the magic with us during the Summer Solstice Mugwort Harvest Event on the 19th! Everyone is invited - we will be creating sacred space outdoors, befriending and harvesting mugwort to make smudge sticks or dream medicine and of course, we will have a fire to celebrate the height of the cycle of seasons. The event will also have great music by Raji Malik and Ron Kravitz.
In the spirit of Alignment you may also consider joining our Kundalini Yoga and Gong Sound Journey Class for Friday 17th. Space is filling up quickly (4 spots left) so reserve your space now.
Finally, our Practitioner Spotlight this month is the amazing Susan Watson! Susan is a gifted healer and seasoned shiatsu teacher and practitioner. After a session with her you will feel open and high! If you want to schedule, you are in luck - she just added another full day to her schedule. Susan has hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Click here to book.
Lots of Love,
P.S. If you know you need an evening session (after 4pm) with Damini or myself, we recommend you book ahead for a few session to ensure you have your preferred appointment time as our summer schedules seem to be filling up - thanks so much!

One is harvesting our incredible ally of transformation and dreamtime, Mugwort. The other is creating a Despacho, or offering, to all the unseen beings who participate in this dance of life with us. I would love to see you there! No experience necessary...Read more –>
