This two hour class is all about clearing space and creating rituals of protection both for your home and your body to help you feel safe and at peace with wherever you’re at. This work will also be helpful if you’ve experienced any kind of “drama” recently in your home, with your friend group or at work that you’d like to clear.



The techniques you will learn are also useful if you have moved into a new place and would like to make sure the place has “good vibes”; or if you are going through a time of stress and would like to have tools you can use to support you through that; and/or if you have recently undergone a stressful period (which, let’s be real, the past year and a half has been stressful for everyone) and would like to learn some ceremonies you can practice any time to restore and rejuvenate. 



  • In this class you will learn:
  • — Clearing Bath recipes and techniques
    — Daily practices you can use to clear your energy field
    — How to clear your home of “bad vibes” (and to recognize when energy is stagnant or troubled)
    — Protecting your space and psyche from draining or troubling influences
  • — A candle ritual for protection
    — To create sanctuary and sacred space, wherever you are
