Flourish-Arts as Sacred Healing
Through the month of September Flourish highlights Acrylic and mixed media paintings by Maribeth Amber
“I am driven to create on a daily basis. Summers find me designing and planting in the garden or collecting driftwood to be made into paintings and sculpture. By late autumn, I am ready to move into my clay studio, or to start painting.”
Maribeth Amber spent childhood summers in Maine building magnificent sand castles. Today, she continues to be inspired by the ocean’s ceaseless crashing waves, the glowing stars at night, the myriad of colorful laughing flowers, growing vegetables, and the quietness of freshly fallen snow. As a teacher for 22 years, she has recently returned to focusing on her own creations when not playing at Flourish!
In her most recent work Maribeth explores her fascination with color, rhythm and movement – inventing, finding beauty in ordinary shapes, creating mysterious worlds, and painting the mundane beautiful.
Maribeth Amber attended Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, The Art Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy. She received her B.A. from the Framingham State University in Massachusetts with a major in art and a minor in education.
Flourish Music Cafe
September 29 at 8pm come on down to the gorgeous listening room at Flourish on Maine Street in Biddeford and listen to some new music from David Karl Roberts as he unveils tunes from his upcoming fall album release.
Also along for the night:
Poetry Off the Cuff, from Portland wordsmith Michele Arcand
Some awesome finger style blues from Charles Kemos.
Clay Parker and Jodi James are an acoustic duo from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The pair’s use of dense harmony-singing and subtle musical arrangements indelibly binds them to the tradition of singer-songwriters and positions them well in the folk roots and americana strains of country music.
Live in Flourish Music Cafe 8pm Saturday October 6, 2018 $10

New monthly writing workshop
Starting Saturday September 29th!!
Writing can feel like a solemn, solitary task. But it doesn’t have to be!
On the last Saturday of the month we’ll gather in creative community to explore the writer’s craft through games, writing prompts, and sharing. Each gathering will have a guiding theme, and will also be co-created by the writers who show up. You’ll find inspiration and a sense of playfulness that will help bring your writing project to life.
Whether you’re writing fiction, memoir, self-help, history, how-to, poetry, or comics; whether you’ve started a book, love to journal, or have just dreamed of writing, you’re welcome to the table.
Bring a notebook, a pen, and an open mind.
Nikki Starcat Shields is an author, licensed Pagan priestess, and book midwife from Hollis, Maine. She is the co-founder of Feline Dreamers, where spirituality powers your daily life.
Nikki has had four non-fiction books published so far, and is currently writing an urban fantasy series. She would love to help you give birth to your heart-centered book, whether it’s memoir, fiction, or self-help.

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.
