Enjoy an intimate evening with experimental soul singer/songwriter Renee Dion in the special listening room that is Flourish.

Renee is on her national tour of her new album HAVEN – an intimate view into the space of a woman rediscovering herself.

“Dion gathers the emotions closest to the heart and combines them with snapshots of intimate moments. In doing so, she delivers a beautiful mosaic made of the most complex and varied parts of love”.

Renee has crafted a delicate safe space of honest music creating a home within her lyrics and detailing patience through some of life’s harsh and gorgeous transitions as Gods child a woman and an artist.

Flourish will feature the art of Larissa Davis for the month of June

In August of 2016 I recognized that fear was running my life. My soul and intuition were a distant whisper. Intellect, reason, my left brain, had been in the driver’s seat for years and the results were not good.

The spark that ignited this introspection was the departure of my 16 year old son for college. He had decided to go to early college and this shook my world. I became accutely aware that I was not finding that illusive happiness and sense of purpose we all seek. So I made a pledge not to make any major decisions until I was unified. And I set about listening, watching, and waiting for my soul to speak.

During this time of introspection I allowed myself to think and dream and imagine. There was a lot of soul searching, and there were tears. But once I began to imagine what could be, instead of focusing on what ‘should’ or ‘had to’ be, or more often, what was “impossible”, I was able to envision myself doing something that brought me joy and was driven by passion and creativity. But it was not until we turned the corner into 2017 that I began to get a much clearer picture of what this all meant.

In January 2017 I had a dream that called me to awaken my artistic self. It showed me art was a pathway to knowing and healing myself, and creating my future. After 20 years in graphic design I had found my passion and I decided to let it lead the way. At an art retreat with some friends in February, creativity rushed in, filling me with inspiration. I was up for hours working on the art project I had started. I simultaneously discovered my deep desire to help share what I was learning with others and to create in community.

As the winter turned to spring, my desire to create this thing was immense. It consumed me and at times was almost overwhelming. I was reading a ton of books (Big Magic of course, but also Dying to Be Me, Steering By Starlight, and a handful of books on art therapy.)  I knew that creating it, bringing this dream into being, would take strength and resolve I had never tapped into before. The intensity of my desire was powerful and painful at once. It often brought me to tears. I recall talking with family and friends about it. “Well” they said, with the kindest of intentions, “even if it doesn’t work out, you will always have your art.”

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.
