For as long as I remember I have been drawn to the moon and it’s magical beauty. There is so much we can learn and manifest when we work with the power of the full moon.
In this workshop I will share some Full moon practices, rituals and meditations you can do to connect with her energy. You don’t necessarily have to do this project on the full moon, as you will feel all the energy and magic from the first full moon of 2020 while I created it.
In this mini workshop I combine my love for the moon with watercolor, one of my favorite mediums.
I will take you step by step through my process on first connecting with a meditation, then painting our Full Moon Goddess together.
I hope you enjoy this class!
There are a total of seven videos including the intro, plus my Guided Full Moon meditation, & a printable drawing of the project.
All the videos are downloadable and you have immediate and lifetime access.
