Astrologer Laura Tucker’s new weekly blog!

Cycles within shifting cycles: our new moon in Taurus occurs tomorrow, May 15th a 28 day cycle of sweet, stable earth energis… but immediately after, the transpersonal planet Uranus, agent of lightening strikes and changes, also enters Taurus.  So this new moon is bound up intimately with Uranus’ 7 year cycle.

 A thoughtful New Moon ritual will extend its influence over the next 7 years!

 New in the ART Gallery 

Flourish will feature the art of Rebekah Lowell for the Month of May, 

 

Rebekah Lowell grew up in the house built by her father, surrounded by a field of timothy grass in Biddeford, Maine. She spent her homeschooled childhood outdoors labeling plants in her sketchbook while dressed up as Laura Ingalls Wilder living along the banks of Plum Creek. In 2004, Rebekah earned her BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her artwork has won the Maine Duck Stamp contest three times and is collected throughout the US and Canada. Rebekah is an MFA candidate at Hollins University where she studies children’s literature and illustration. She lives in her hometown of Biddeford, Maine with her husband, her daughters, and two tuxedo cats. As a survivor of domestic abuse, Rebekah uses her art as a means of recovery. When not in her studio, you can find her reading, writing, eating ice cream, or out exploring with her family, passing along the same wild Maine childhood that she had.

Larissa Davis  of Soul Path Art Journey Workshop

next workshop tba

Our inner spirit is indomitable. Even when we ignore our intuition, our soul remains steadfast, indomitable, and everlasting; calling us to our highest path; igniting our imagination and desire. We begin this workshop with exercises to quiet the left brain, get our creativity flowing, and connect with our dreams and desires. And then, with all this rich information and inspiration, I will gently introduce you to the canvas where we will create a dream painting using a fun 4-step process (I use it for all my paintings!) Keep it abstract or create a mandala, butterfly, or other focal image expressive of your dream with my guidance and support. There is no pressure to “complete” your art because it is all about the process, not the product. The painting is a supportive, playful, meditative experience which will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed, aligned and connected with your indomitable soul.

The minimum age for this workshop is 18.

This is a beginner’s workshop and is to be used only as a personal tool for oneself and/or friends/family. In no way does this workshop qualify a student to begin taking on paying clients for shamanic healing purposes, as this requires advanced training.

doTerra  Essential Oil

When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.

While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques.

The most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected.

We have many of the most commonly needed essential oils to keep you healthy & happy. We sell terra shield in both a spray bottle and oil form for all those nasty bugs !  We also carry a variety of diffusers, a great way to keep the air healthy during the pollen season.
