Here Sahaja is powdering roses and nettles we had gathered and dried in previous classes...
Then we mixed the nettles, roses, dried calendula petals (also collected and dried previously) with local almonds and rolled oats that we ground, as well as powdered clay...to make beautiful facial scrubs.
Using driftwood collected from Sonoma coast, beads, jewels, paint, colored wire, and feathers, we created magic wands...while talking about the nature and purpose of a wand: for concentrating our intentions, and internal/external energies to manifest those intentions. Each WE Girl infused her wand with an intention of her own, and it was very moving to hear them speak of all beings being kind to one another, carrying peace forward in the world, and caring with love for humans and the earth.
and at last: a jump in the pond!
