No, seriously, you missed out. The Califia Collective Holiday Market was AMAZING!
There was of course the lovely Dream Workshop by our COM|PASSionate REVOLUTIONARY, Kaeti Gugiu, the highly anticipated Elixir Bar + Potion Lab, lots of lovingly made and magically imbued goodies and most importantly community gathering!
Those who swung through were lovely, folks with lots of healing knowledge themselves, aromatherapy and plant medicine aficionados, those just entering wide eyed into the world of quirky holistic healers and medicine makers, serendipitous new connections and even some unexpectedly familiar faces! We were quite busy heading up to the event (and even almost missed it by a day due to confused chaotic holiday scheduling on our end) but we're so glad we did the hustle to get there! It was truly a testament to opening up to new connections, trusting and heading in with open hearts.
Because... when you're open to new connections, trust and head in with open hearts sometimes you come out well dressed, smelling delicious, warmed up from the inside and also vaguely sparkly from a fortuitous trade with a radical midwife who's partner makes magical goodies like Unicorn Sparkle Balm!
Yup. You missed out. In fact I hesitated too long and missed out on the Dragon Balm! Life lesson: If someone, ANYONE, offers you a magical gathering and sparkly things in jars labeled after mythical creatures there's no room for hesitation... I REPEAT, NO ROOM.
Stay posted! We know we will! Check out links after the fold for holiday healing treats, services and revolutionaries!
