New Moon Astrology Class

Sunday, November 24 | 1:30 - 4:45 | $75


Sophia Angelina Dallair

The Moon is New on November 26th! Gather with Sophia to study your astrology chart to see how this new beginning can be significant in your life.

This is the kick-off class for the astrology series called Cosmic Inner View coming in 2020, in which you continue to learn astrology, diving into your own chart to understand your challenges and manifest your gifts. Join in this first class to build community and intention before the new year.

We will create a New Moon Altar and Vision Board. All supplies except scissors provided.  Feel free to bring your own images or clippings of intentions as well.  For your altar, please bring a nature object (feather, stone, flower, wood, etc), picture of an ancestor, loved one, or animal, and anything else that has meaning for you.

When you register for this class, please send Sophia your birth info: full date, birth location, and birth time, so she can bring your chart. If you don’t know your time, we can figure it out beforehand.

Monthly Astrology classes will be held starting in January 2020, called “2020 Inner Cosmic Vision”

Essential Oils, Reflexology & Healthy Gift Giving

Sunday, December 8 | 1:30 - 5:00 | $125


Sophia Angelina Dallair

Come learn some basics of the Medicinal Essential Oils of plants, which support the body’s health, immunity, and relaxation. We will focus on some basic plants of an herb garden -  lemon, lavender, peppermint, and more. We will also learn about Young Living’s blends of Thieves, Purification, Stress Away, and Release, and the power I have witnessed with all of these oils in my 13 years experience. 

We will cover a brief guide to Reflexology. This ancient art of healing through pressure points of the feet, hands, ears and sinuses can speed the healing symptoms of the body. In this workshop we will focus on the common cold, aiding in head, sinus, ear, throat, and lung wellness.

Workshop includes the supplies and making of Epsom bath salts with my Young Living essential oil collection or any essential oils that you bring. I will supply the organic coconut oil supplies for salves, also mixing them with essential oils of my collection or yours.

Memoir & Meditation

November 15 - 17 | 4pm Friday - 2pm Sunday | $325



Dawn Curtis & Ellen Collins

" We are each like an ocean, holding moments and impressions that sometimes hide in the depths and sometimes rise to the surface in shadowed glimpses or in absolute clarity. Memoir is a genre that helps us find those deeper places. Sometimes those deeper moments need to be teased out, because we have safeguarded them in the recesses of our minds. Sometimes all we need is some dedicated time to explore the stories we want to write."

Join Dawn Curtis and Ellen Collins for a weekend retreat of Yoga and Memoir writing in the healing and restorative environment of Galleywinter Farm in the lee of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Using nature, yoga asanas and meditation, plumb the deep well of memory and find the stories that matter.
Ellen Collins is an award-winning writer. She has published two books of poetry (The Memory Thief and Invitations: Poems of Yoga and Meditation). A teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools for over 20 years, she has also led writing workshops for adults and children.
Dawn Curtis, C-IAYT, E-RYT® 500, is an experienced yoga educator and Certified Yoga Therapist. Dawn has practiced yoga for more than 25 years.
