Circular forms in art are often referred to as mandalas, the Sanskrit word for Mandala is sacred circle. Mandalas are circular designs that represent wholeness that goes beyond the human body to
the vast universe and all it contains.
We will be honouring the circle and gathering to celebrate the autumn colours through chanting, breath work, yoga, and art.
Mandala making offers a spiritual practice and creating them brings a calm state of mind that is open to creation, while the same time draws focus and reflection. When you create your own mandala, think of it as an echo of your soul.
In this Autumn mini retreat join:
Lisa Martin for a journey together through a creative process, where she will give you all of the techniques you’ll need to create your own layered nature mandala painting while expressing your creative self. You’ll add delicious textural layers and personal flair as you introduce all of these techniques.

Included in this day:
** light snacks of warm vegan soup with teft bread
** all materials for your take-home art project
** restorative (optional Reiki) yoga class
Lisa has had a love of crafts of all shapes, sizes, and textures from a very young age. As an adult Lisa transformed this adoration of
arts and crafts and her creativeness to establish Coop's Chaotic Creations. Creativity doesn't stop there for Lisa, as a certified Life Coach for pain management Lisa also guides individuals living with chronic pain physically, emotionally and mentally to empower
them in achieving their goal of being pain free in mind, body and spirit.
Christine is Metis and is a Certified Medical Intuitive, Reiki
Master, and a Certified Adult & Children's Yoga Instructor. After more than 10 years of international work, Christine discovered she has a deep passion for leading people into unexplored territory both in the physical and spiritual realms. Through much self-discovery Christine has learned that the greatest mysteries lie-within and views herself as Tour-Of-The-Soul Guide helping people traverse the human experience.
Christine is a born adventurer who has a childlike curiosity about
everything and brings that into all she does. As a proud mother of
one, she continues to grow by forming meaningful connections with all she meets and living her life on purpose practicing mind-body-soul alignment and operating from wholeness.

Join us this October for an Intro to Soap Workshop at Purdy Natural London, happening on the 22nd from 6-9pm. Learn how to make soap from scratch, how to calculate your recipes, how to adjust your bars (e.g. to be harder, softer, gentler, etc), important safety considerations when using Lye and soap making, and everything else you’ll need to know to get started. In this hands on class, you’ll get to make your own full custom loaf (8 bars) of cold process soap from scratch.
The cost of this class includes 1 silicone soap mold, 1 full loaf of take-home soap, and a starter booklet on soap making by The Eco Well. Please bring your own gloves, glasses (sunglasses work great!), close-toed shoes and old clothes with long sleeves (soap making can be messy!).

We have very limited tickets for this class to ensure lots of hands-on time and time for questions. If you’d like to join in, be sure to register earlier rather than later. Are you already an experienced soap maker? Let us know in advance and we can modify your lesson to suit your level :).
