The Scarlet Sage Herb Co.: Love Your Body: A Valentine’s Ritual
February 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Valentine’s Day feels overwhelming and fraught for many of us. We feel the longing for love and unconditional acceptance from others, but we can celebrate this day in a different way – by deepening our practice of love for ourselves and our bodies.
This ritual involves a 25-30 minute guided meditation followed by letter-writing. Please bring a journal and pen and wear comfortable clothes.
