Art the New You is creating art as a form of calling in your next level of manifestation is a powerful and introspective journey. In this transformative process, the act of artistic expression becomes a conduit for manifesting intentions and desires. Each step serves as a channel for translating inner visions into tangible, external representations. This practice encourages a deep connection with one’s inner self, allowing for the exploration of dreams, aspirations, and the energies one wishes to attract. The act of creation becomes a sacred ritual, aligning the artist with their true purpose and desires. Through this intentional and mindful approach to art-making, individuals tap into the creative forces within and set in motion the manifestation of their next level of being. It’s a harmonious fusion of creativity, spirituality, and manifestation that empowers individuals to bring their aspirations to life through the medium of art.
Experience an Oil Anointing using Bloom Fine Egyptian Oils. Oil Anointing Priests and Priestesses are also called Myrrhopores. A Myrrhophore is a Priest or Priestess of an ancient lineage who works with sacred oils. In the temples of Egypt, the priests and priestesses knew the oils opened a gateway to the divine and acted as an initiator into the inner temple. The wisdom of the Myrrhophore lives in our DNA and is activated through the use of oils.
The Seven Sacred Oils
Found listed on stunning alabaster stone tablets in tombs from the Old Kingdom, the Seven Sacred Oils have been used in ceremony in Egypt for thousands of years. The oils we will be using in our ceremony, Bloom Fine Egyptian Oils, are imported directly from Egypt. The oils are prepared by 5th generation alchemist and world’s foremost expert on healing work with the oils, Gamal Ab’del of Shikh Abdull Oils & Perfume in Cairo. These oils are part of an ancient mystery school tradition that includes using essential oils for clearing the chakras, enhancing rituals and initiations, as well as for balancing mind, body, and spirit.
The experience will awaken your remembrance through oil anointing ceremony, guided meditation, and deep-personal awareness.
Ecstatic Dance – Elements of Embodiment is a transformative and immersive movement experience that transcends traditional dance forms. Rooted in the belief that the body holds profound wisdom, this practice encourages participants to explore authentic self-expression through uninhibited movement. The dance floor becomes a sacred space where individuals can connect with their bodies, emotions, and the collective energy around them. As music flows through the various elements, participants are invited to move freely, embracing spontaneity and self-discovery. Ecstatic Dance fosters a sense of community, inviting individuals to let go of judgment and tap into the pure joy of movement. It is a celebration of the body’s inherent ability to communicate, heal, and connect with the essence of being alive.
**Clothing: We will be going into a temple ceremony, so I invite you to adorn your body and wear what illuminates your essence! You can choose to anoint the oils on your lower arms or on your chakra points. Dress however you would like to easily anoint yourself, and is non-restrictive for movement. Please note oils may get on clothing.
