WAX, WICK AND FLAME

WAX, WICK AND FLAME

$0.00Price

Candle light has infused itself into occasions both ordinary and ritualistic in human life for generations. From festive gatherings to restful meditations, lighting a candle is an ordinary practice that sets ambiance and intent to your evening in a simple and impactful way. 

 

At the autumn equinox, when the seasons are balanced just so, we ritualistically dip beeswax candles as a prayer and celebration for the dark half of the year to come. 

 

Join Sabrina Peraza and Stephanie Dalman in a special co- facilitated workshop where we will communally dip beeswax candles and take the time to consider, thank and meditate on the magic of bees, the richness of their wax and the wonder of a candles flame.

Facilitator Bio- Stephanie Dalman

 

"My name is Stephanie and I grew up in the PNW in a little town nestled between the mountains and the salt water. I spent most of my 20’s between the high desert in Arizona and a little mountain town in Colorado. I moved back home six years ago, met the love of my life and now we’re raising our two boys in a yurt on some land we bought.

My candle making journey started when I was pregnant with my oldest son about 4 1/2 years ago as a hobby/second income and it quickly grew to what it is today.

 

Living off grid with her family allows her deeply savors the meditative, romantic and stress relieving qualities of beeswax candle light.
