potter 1da38

Color Magic for Creatives is an experiential workshop that gives attendees the opportunity to harness the intentional power if the rainbow to spark inspiration. Color Magic is a manifestation tool which uses the vibrational energy of a range colors to invoke change and emotional responses within ourselves and our environments. In this class, we will be working with specific hues to nurture our creativity and invoke inspiration. In a world that is more geared towards freelance work, how do we stay inspired when our livelihood depends on constant creative output? How do we tap into our creativity to feel nourished and productive? This class is not just for artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs! Creativity is part of being a human. We all get stuck, we all find ourselves in a rut of our daily routine and the mundane, but we need to shift our perspective and keep things exciting in order to lead inspired lives which keep us thriving and setting new goals in order to get psyched to get out of bed every morning to see our world in multidimensional technicolor! This class will include a ritual to invoke inspiration (which you can practice in your own home or creative space at any time you need a boost!) as well as the creation of a talisman to take home with you to provide inspiration moving forward.

Sex Magic

Sex Magick
With freelance writer based in Brooklyn, Sophie Saint Thomas

sohie st thomas 32395

There is power in pleasure. Sex magick is harnessing sexual energy and orgasms to manifest a goal, which does not need to be sexual in nature. You can come for money. Both the desire for pleasure and power are stigmatized by institutions that would prefer us powerless. In this class, which does not require nudity or touching, we will learn what sex magick is, its controversial origins, and how to do it.

Bring a journal and an open mind.

Meet your Future Self
With N.Y.C. based professional Quantum Healing Hypnotherapist, Trish Burger

future self 78653

Ready to see who are 100 or 200 years into the future? Find out more about yourself during this future self experience. In this workshop we will be using the Dolores Cannon method of guided regression with light hypnosis. You will have a chance to see and experience who you could possibly be in the future. You will also have a chance to understand the lessons and the purpose of your future self. Patterns repeat in lifetimes until you learn the lessons and transcend your challenges. Incorporating the new information of who you become in your future life can add clarity to the current life you are living. This class uses light hypnosis. I find clients who meditate regularly can go deeper. A meditation practice is not a prerequisite but can be helpful. Try meditating for 10 minutes a day for a few days before the class for the best experience.

Past Life Regression
With NYC based professional Quantum Healing Hypnotherapist, Trish Burger

PastLife 989a8

Ready to remember who you were in a past life? Are you drawn to a specific time in history and you are not sure why? Find out more about yourself during this past life regression experience. In this workshop we will be using the Dolores Cannon method of guided regression. You will have a chance to see and experience who you were in a past life. You will also have a chance to understand the lessons and purpose of your past life. Patterns repeat in lifetimes until you learn the lessons and transcend your challenges. Incorporating the new information of who you were in your past life can add clarity to the current life you are living. This is accomplished during the group regression by using simple visualization and imagery techniques. The group is regressed back in time to see one of their past lives using light hypnosis. You will be able to see important days in that lifetime and also remember if you have lived with people from your current life before.
