New monthly writing workshop

Next meeting is January 26th 

2- 3:30 PM

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 a 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 a memoir, fiction, or self-help.

Nikki specializes in guiding your unique voice – your expertise, your passions, your most cherished stories – to the page in a way that will engage and delight your readers

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 the 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 also carry a variety of diffusers, a great way to keep the air healthy during the winter season. Try Breath to open up nasal passages and for a breath of fresh air !
